BARCELONA in Flow-Motion – A fast moving short film….In few other cities is it possible to walk from spectacular location to spectacular location. I had a fantastic time adventuring around Barcelona’s winding streets making this film. Special thanks to Ferran Macià Edo and his colleagues from Agència Catalana de Turisme (Catalan Tourism Board) for helping me get access to shoot at numerous stunning locations.

Get the most from ShutterBug Remotes HDR tab

Posted by | Techniques | No Comments

An HDR-LE photograph requires capturing multiple images of varying long exposures in a sequence and combining them into one image with higher dynamic range.  The HDR tab of the Shutterbug Remote app allows you to capturing these images as a three shot bracket.

  1. You first need to figure out what your middle exposure settings (properly exposed) will be by taking a picture with your camera using a priority / manual mode.  Take note of the shutter and aperture values.  Tip: A shutter time of 1/4 second or longer will provide the best results.  This is due to the limitations of controlling fast shutter speeds through the shutter release port.
  2. Put your camera in Bulb mode, giving the Shutterbug direct control over the shutter times.  Set your aperture to the value determined in step 1.
  3. On the HDR page of the Shutterbug App, enter your shutter time from step 1 into the “Exposure Time” field.Bracket Duration Read More

11 insanely creative photos from Ellie Davies and a ShutterBug Remote

Posted by | Techniques | No Comments

Ellie Davies has been working in UK forests for the past seven years, making work which explores the complex interrelationship between the landscape and the individual. Our understanding of landscape can be seen as a construction in which layers of meaning that reflect our own cultural preoccupations and anxieties obscure the reality of the land, veiling it, and transforming the natural world into an idealization. On a few of Ellie’s past shoots she has used ShutterBug Remote to produce some incredibly creative works. Learn more about Ellie by visiting her website http://www.elliedavies.co.uk/. All image rights remain with Ellie Davies.

Painting With Light – A Tutorial You Can Do At Home

Posted by | Techniques | No Comments

Painting With Light Setup Sketch

About The Technique

“Painting With Light” is an age old (and really fun) photography technique based on actively manipulating the light in a scene during a long exposure.  It can be done in a variety of settings from studios to outdoors, and a variety of styles from macro to nature.  The basic process goes like this:

  1. Find / setup a scene where your controlled light source will dominate over any other light sources.  The easiest way to do this is to shoot indoors with all the lights off, or shoot outdoors at night.
  2. Find a light source.  This can be anything that gives off light – a standard flash, a candle, or even a laser pointer.  In this example, we’re going to be using a flashlight and the screen of an iPhone.
  3. Start exposing the scene (open the shutter) and use your light source to “paint it”.  Light up the subjects you want to focus on, create or remove shadows, add background interest, or even create shapes / write words in the frame.

The fun part about this process is that there are so many different ways you can control the result, and every picture you create will be different.  Don’t like a shadow?  Illuminate it.  Texture doesn’t look good lit from the bottom?  Light it from the top.  Let’s get into an actual example of painting with light that I did in my kitchen with equipment that most amateurs will have access to.

The Art Of The Timelapse

Meet Michael Shainblum “Into The Atmosphere” this new timelapse video by Michael spotlights epic, natural spots in California. Find out how Shainblum creates visual magic in the video below. http://shainblum.smugmug.com/

From Michael’s Website:

“Ever since I can remember I wanted to be an artist. Not necessarily a photographer or a filmmaker or a director, just an artist. I have a drive to create and a passion to show the world through my eyes.

I seek to capture the extraordinary and the unique. I find beauty in everything from the scale of our Galaxy to the way sunlight hits a glass of water from behind. In filmmaking and photography possibilities are endless. I strike with every project and photography to push the boundaries of what we think is achievable in these mediums.

I am currently based in San Diego California and I have a Bachelors Degree In Professional Photography from Brooks Institute Of Photography in Santa Barbara.”
