Travel Guide For Photographers | Fstoppers

Travel Guide For Photographers | Fstoppers | HDSLR | Scoop.it

Working as a commercial photographer, I have the opportunity to travel often with my work. In the year 2013 alone, I’ve flown over 25 thousand miles, and have a few thousand more before the end of the year. Here are some tips I’ve picked up over the years to help make traveling as a photographer much easier and far less stressful.

News Shooter | Holi Shit: Frank Sauer combines freerunning and 240fps. Shot on Sony FS700 and Canon 5D mkIII RAW

News Shooter | Holi Shit: Frank Sauer combines freerunning and 240fps. Shot on Sony FS700 and Canon 5D mkIII RAW | HDSLR | Scoop.it

We last caught up with Frank Sauer back in 2011 with his documentary on freerunning. Since then it seems he’s been pretty busy notching up staff picks on Vimeo, and his return to the subject takes on an even slicker form, using bigger cameras, drones and lots of slow motion. We asked Frank to tell us more about the video he has titled ‘Holi Shit’.


Holi Shit takes a team of freerunners, geared up with a lot of ‘men’s toys’ (which were as great to play with as they are to watch in slow motion) and follows their adventures through the abandoned suburbs of Berlin. During their three day journey the freerunners and camera crew got lost more than once on the endless highways outside of Berlin Brandenburg.

One might say this was a bell weather day for the Sierra Nevada mountains. In January, just as the Sun was setting above the district of Albayzín in Grenada, Spain, a huge cloud appeared as a bell capping the Veleta peak.

How YouTube Tries to Keep Videos Playing Smoothly No Matter What « No Film School | HDSLR | Scoop.it

In an effort to get videos to stream more reliably regardless of your connection speed, the YouTube team at Google continues to innovate and utilize different distribution methods to get videos buffering as little as possible and in the highest quality possible. Here’s a great video from Computerphile that explains just how complicated their delivery system actually is, and how they get high-traffic videos to actually load faster (and the video itself is on YouTube, of course):

Back Bone Cine Mod GoPro Hero 3. Nikon Lens Mount Adapter. « Wide Open Camera | HDSLR | Scoop.it

Back Bone has announced a face plate lens adapter for the GoPro Hero 3 camera. It looks like they have both C-Mount and Nikon mount adapters. This requires some minor surgery to the camera but should be well worth the effort. Finally we can use real glass on these puppies! Back Bone has no release date or price just yet. Here is a rip from the website. A Big THANKS! to @EricDiosay for the lead.

Stunning Product Shots With iPhone and iPad LightPainting | DIYPhotography.net | HDSLR | Scoop.it

I like playing around with lightpainting ever since I started photography because the possibilities were endless! One night I wanted to challenge myself to lightpaint using only my gadgets, so my iphone and my ipad.


I thought of using my iPhone as my main light to highlight the subject and my iPad to use as my background. I had an app in my iPad which had some cool patterns to use as a catchlight, then I saw a pattern which I knew would look great if I used it for lightpainting.
