Answered: What Microphones Should I Use to Record at a Concert?

After posting a behind the scenes photo of me working a concert gig, I was hit with a variety of questions from followers about certain aspects of my rig, and what I thought of them. I started answering them, but then decided a better course would be to make my answers public for everyone to see. Several questions I received had to do with what microphone I was using, why I was using it, what I recommend and why. Well, let’s dive...

20 Things You Can Learn From an Instagram Photographer

In the last couple of years we have seen a boom in creativity of an ever increasing base of Instagram users. Although 8 out of 10 Instagram users you follow still posts endless selfies or flood your feed with successive images that would make you want to comment “can you just post it as an FB album,” the jewels among the rough in Instagram isn’t hard to find, as these are the users who command a large following....

Chris Burkard – The Joy of Surfing in Ice-Cold Water

  There is no denying that surf and adventure photographer Chris Burkard has influenced an entire generation of young adventure photographers, including myself (minus the young part). My Instagram feed is filled with epic adventure photos from all over the globe, and the Burkard influence in these photos is obvious. Gone are the days of wide open and empty landscapes.

A Montage of 33 Last Shots from 33 Different Movies

Much of the strength of a film relies on the final sequence just as much as its overall plot. The scenes that transpires right before the screen turns black, that delivers a stirring emotion whether in the form of a dramatic line or a fascinating climax always remains in the minds of the viewers. Throughout the motion picture history we are gifted with such classic endings and I of course have a lot of personal favorites, but a...

ReWrap Podcast Episode 13: Shooting Major Productions on iPhone, #SelfieClass at USC, and Photojournalism as a Career

On this podcast we talk a lot about mobile photography because let’s face it: it’s a big deal. With each passing day we see better and better tech being integrated into our phones, especially in digital imaging. Last week saw a second Bentley commercial/documentary published that was shot entirely on iPhone 6 and 6+, which led to a conversation about where that device as a camera fits in as a medium.

Photographers, What Would You Do with 4 More Hours in the Work Day?

It seems to me that much of what photographers lament about their day to day is simply running out of time to do the things they want to do, be that editing, shooting, planning, or any of the hundreds of things a full time or part time photographer needs to juggle. So what would you do if you were magically granted four more hours to your work day? Would you spend it outside shooting? Perhaps you would spend it calling a list of...

DJI Ronin-M First Impressions: This Thing is Killer

If any of you shoot with smaller camera rigs like I do, then the idea of the Ronin-M was immediately enticing. The original Ronin, though incredibly well-priced, was surprisingly heavy at 9.3 pounds with no camera attached to it. The new Ronin nearly slashes that in half at 5.1 pounds with no camera attached, and that kind of weight drop is significant, despite it not really appearing so on paper. In preliminary testing, I have nearly...
