pril month’s Photo Critic photography competition goes to Ryno Taljaard for his image “Working till Dawn".
It's a new year with new dreams, plans, and strategies. And most of our plans involve two words, "Saving Time". Whether you’re a business person, or a home-maker, your are probably faced with this issue. We all want to save time to improve the quality of our lives. Being a photographer, I have learned that this one phrase, "Saving Time" is probably one of the most important principles in my business. I constantly work on means to improve not only my photography, but also improving my digital workflow. A more efficient workflow, means less time in front of the PC or Mac. Spending less time in front of the computer screen, means more time for myself and ultimately more time to work on my photography techniques and actually "getting out there".
Another great time-lapse photography video. This time with tilt and shift lens to create a miniature marvel about a day in New York. Shot with a Nikon D3 and D80. Brilliantly done!
Eeverybody that knows me, know that I have a thing for stop motion photography and when I have the time, I try my hand, or should I say my camera at it. I was totally blown away by the following stop motion sequence, which was pointed out to me by a friend. Check it out...
During the past few months, we saw two new SLR cameras being launched; the mid-range Canon 60D , and then the entry level Nikon D3100.Those Nikon users among us, should therefore be very delighted that we have been graced with the release of yet another Nikon DSLR. This time it is the Nikon D7000! Unfortunately, it will take some time before I can lay my grubby hands on one (that's to check it out myself), but from what I have read it surely going to rock the boat for some Nikon users who are thinking about upgrading. According to DP Review; it will slot in right between the nimble D90 and the feature-heavy D300S. Here's a few key features, you may be interested in...
Stop motion photography has become very popular over the past few years and we can expect to see more and more fast action Stop Motion Movies and slideshow as camera manufacturers keep on pushing silly frame rates. Both Canon and Nikon have some serious contenders in terms of speed in the form of the Nikon D3X, Canon 1D Mark IV, and even the smaller siblings like the Canon EOS 7D and Nikon D300S. With speeds thar range between 8 to 10 frames a second these cameras are equipped with high-end focusing systems to ensure sharp images, frame for frame.
I found this pretty amazing video, shot with Canon's latest flagship; the Canon 1D Mark IV. Apart from the content, I love the slow motion and shallow depth of field made possible by large aperture lenses.
