Thankfully, when I was writing the script for ’Metanoia’, I wasn’t stopping along the way to ask how I was going to get it made. If I had, I probably would of thought there were simply too many things I couldn’t accomplish. All I knew was that I was on my way to telling a story that I felt deeply passionate and excited to tell.
Nature photography of any kind has its challenges, however macro photography could be considered as one of the most demanding. There are a number of factors that you have to consider, especially when you are photographing small living subjects, such as insects, or frogs.
Photokina, the worlds largest photo trade show, has been in full swing since 1950. Along with CP+ and PMA, Photokina showcases the latest in digital gear, photographic presentation, drones, accessories, and so much more. 2016 is the first year that The Camera Store TV took the long flight over to Cologne, Germany. One could easily be forgiven for assuming that TCSTV would be in camera gear Heaven. However Photokina, and Cologne, held much more in store for us than just technology.
Our latest TCSTV episode was inspired in just such a way. If we were lost in the woods, could we start a fire using only the glass elements in our lenses? From here, Jordan and I quickly expanded the idea to the following: If stuck in a survival situation, how well could we manage using only the camera gear and photo accessories found in the average photographer’ s backpack? Inspired by equal parts Survivorman and MacGyver, we soon had our most challenging, and most enjoyable idea to date.
Tyler Forest-Hauser has always been a creative person, jumping between composing music, filmmaking and video editing in his early 20s. While I never saw him with a still camera during that period, I could see how important strong composition was to him in the early short films he directed. He had a photographer’s eye, but a photo camera was never on his radar.
Saskatchewan based photographer Chris Attrell has been exploring the back-roads of his province in search of ghost towns, abandoned farm houses and wicked prairie storms. He has a passion for photographing the abandoned places by night and started adding portrait photography in rural environments by day a few years ago.
My name is Rurik and I am a volunteer photographer. I have been photographing the Johnson MS Bike Tour since 2010. As a photographer I always consider these events as a great opportunity to practice my action and portrait photography skills. Therefore, I would like to share some tips to help find great shots of people and action in an outdoor environment with people having a good time.
With the spring and summer months here and the desolate white and brown landscape that is Alberta behind us, for a few more weeks at least, Chris and Jordan took some time out of their busy schedule to take a look at shooting macro photography.
On photographer Mark Kelly’s online portfolio there is a series of photos of an abandoned building. It might be a mansion or a hotel. The rooms are brightened by dashes of colour, a pink wall, then a blue one, a wooden balustrade that ends with a volute curled like a fiddlehead at the bottom of a flight of stairs. Then there is sand. The building is filled with swells of sand as if the tide of a dry ocean is rising.
