Unveil the model with your mouse

Submitted by Michael on Sun, 07/07/2013 - 05:56


Photographers can now participate in a photography nude art project, which was born on July 4th (just like the USA). The project celebrates models that are so self-confidant that they step in front of the camera in their birthday suite.

Within the project the models are called "role models", because they demonstrate the pride and the self-confidence that we all need to live free of inhibition.

Every one of my photographer cousins is welcome to replicate our setup, shoot their own photos in the style of this project and submit them for publication. A number of my photography club members have already done so.

Watch here, how Cousin Metin is shooting our title...

Basic Lighting for Portrait Photography

Submitted by Michael on Fri, 05/17/2013 - 22:18

I love, love, love the attitude of Ed Verosky's new eBook "Basic Lighting for Portrait Photography". It starts with the sentence "No matter what your budget or how limited your work space or experience level, you should be able to use this book to create great portrait lighting immediately."

I believe an eBook on portrait photography lighting basics makes good sense. I've seen a lot of material on the basics of lighting in general, but no so many portrait specific books yet. If I specifically want to shoot great portraits, then I better master specifically the basics of portrait lighting.

That is why I had a close look at Ed's new eBook and I would like to share what I found inside.

The eBook starts of with a detailed discussion...

Phottix Mitros TTL Speedlight Unboxing

Submitted by Michael on Tue, 03/19/2013 - 03:17


The LCD of the Mitros displays a ton of very useful information.

Well, yes, it was me who said that I will never do something as stupid as an unboxing video. But when I got my hands on the new Phottix Mitros Speedlight, well, I just could not resist. I filmed the unboxing. However, I while unboxing I am...

I need the new Atlas II radio triggers

Submitted by Michael on Sun, 08/26/2012 - 22:32

Phottix just released the 2nd generation of their awesome Atlas Radio Trigger. I really can’t wait to get my hands on them. Not only are they supposed to work rock solid at 1/250s sync speed within a range of 350 meters, which is an insane distance for a flash trigger, but they also come with one feature that I have been desperately waiting for:

A two stage shutter button for remotely triggering my camera. Once I have the triggers I’ll make a video and show them how I am going to use this new function. It's a pitty that these babies are not compatible with the first generation Atlas....

His Paintings Beat My Photos

Submitted by Michael on Sat, 08/18/2012 - 05:55

It's not just a saying, but I really believe that one of the reasons why I am a photographer is, that I am not good at drawing and painting. To be perfectly honest I totally suck at both. Not that I did never try and practice. We did all this stuff in art lessons at college. That's why it became obvious to me early on, that I should better stick with a computer keyboard and never touch a pencil or a brush.

With that being said, you might understand why I am totally humbled by the artistic skills of Linden Fredrick. He cant PAINT scenes better and more realistic than I could photograph them.

Thanks to Michael the Maven for blogging about this great artist.
