Street photography is a lot like assembling a puzzle: you check out the pieces, choose what looks right, then place it together in a way that unites the disorder to form an image. Most of the time, you have no way of knowing if the pieces will fit, so you rely on spontaneity and chance to construct the perfect picture. While there aren't many photographers who do this well, Cheryl Dunn's latest film Everybody Street features many who do: delving deeply into the lives of New York's thirteen most iconic street photographers of all time.
“If you want to get a really broad slice of humanity, you can find it in New York,” Dunn told Wired. “Every kind of person is out there and I think that’s what attracted all these photographers.”
Released in November 2013, Dunn spent about three years tracking down everyone from Elliot Erwitt and Mary Ellen Mark to Bruce Gilden and Martha Cooper; and the audience watches these artists discuss their craft, film their shoots—and of course—address the rise of the digital era, which has played a crucial role in increasing the popularity of the medium. The film also features the likes of Bruce Davidson, Jill Freedman, Joel Meyerowitz, Rebecca Lepkoff, Jeff Mermelstein, Clayton Patterson, Ricky Powell, Jamel Shabazz, and Boogie, along with historians Max Kozloff and Luc Sante.
The film begins with images from the 1970's, using the photographer's photos and interviews as a narrative, while addressing the stories behind their work. From Ricky Powell, a photographer known for his renowned photos of Basquiat and Warhol, to Jill Freedman's crime scene coverage that captured the "good cops" of New York, the absolute nostalgia of the pre-Giuliani era is nothing short of inspiring, as it explores the degrees in which these photographers have pioneered a style that is still very much alive today.
Of the photographers featured, one of the most compelling stories is Boogie's—a photographer who spent years shooting junkies and gangsters throughout Brooklyn. In his photos, you see addicts with needles protruding from their limbs, along with shots of guns pointed directly at his face. To him, this was so captivating that it eventually became too much to handle. He explains in the film: "there are these lines that shouldn't be crossed, but what are those lines? The deeper you go, the better pictures you take, until it becomes the most important thing in your life. It can ultimately fuck you up and destroy everything."
Towards the latter portion of the film, Dunn addresses the controversy around digital photography and social media (something that we at Resource know all too much about): highlighting the views of individual photographers in contrast with one another. There's Elliot Erwitt, for example, who believes "digital manipulation killed photography."
"Digital made it all too easy and everyone can get an image now, but not everyone can get a good one," he says in the film. "There's little morale among my colleagues and things are tough. We know film's going to become obsolete but the question is when."
On the other hand, there are photographers, like Joel Meyerwitz, who believe iPhones and DSLR cameras have turned photography into a universal medium, which is, in fact, a positive thing.
"Sure, their work is going to be very contemporary; it's going to be where we are today in the world of digital," he says. "And yeah, sure there's a lot of crap, but I also think there's a lot of genius that's waiting to be discovered."
Even Jill Freedman, agrees with this argument: "A picture is a picture; it doesn't matter what tool you use. I think it's ridiculous how people carry on about it!"
And yet, the film explores much more than just this: such as Martha Cooper's graffiti photos and Bruce Davidson's late-night subway explorations. But no one likes a spoiler, right? You can rent the film through Vimeo On Demand for only $4.99. Watch it now!

The historical wet plate photo process was invented in the 1800s, and consisted of photographers coating a metal or glass plate with a chemical called collodion, immersing it in silver nitrate and then exposing the plate—which acts as a negative—in a light proof box. Although this method allowed for a much shorter exposure than previous photographic methods, it also had its limitations. Despite the focused and defined b&w still life images rendered by this process, it required a hefty amount of equipment and couldn't capture moving action without a blur. Not to mention, these exposures also need to be done within only fifteen minutes.
Now over 200 years later, the process has been revived while a solution for these issues has finally been found. And it exists on the back of a bicycle nonetheless.

Douglas Nicolson is a London-based artist who has created a mobile darkroom, practicing the wet plate process but without its previous constraints. While the process requires an almost immediate exposure, Nicholson decided to build a darkroom on the back of a bicycle so photographers can immediately develop their photos.

As a person who identifies as an artist, educator and researcher, Nicolson's mobile darkrooms are part of an evolving art exhibition. He has demonstrated this process across shops and venues throughout Stoke Newington and Dalston in London during the COS Artwalk Festival last year.

Nicolson was born in Scotland and earned a bachelors in visual arts from the University of Arts, London, along with a Masters in Community Art Practice from Goldsmiths University, London. Currently based in London, he has worked to create artwork with inmates in a prison in the UK, children in a Romanian homeless shelter, in addition to young offenders in East London and residents in a psychiatric hospital.

So you're a parent who also happens to be a photographer and your kids are interested in photography as well—but of course—they won't listen to a thing you say about it. Here are seven classes and courses throughout the country that are geared towards teaching kids about photography, all of which are, in fact, still offering programs for the remainder of the summer. Plus, what better to get your child out of the house than with a camera in hand!
7. The 92nd Street Y, NYC
This New York photography summer camp is geared towards children between the ages of eleven and fourteen. Students are required to bring their own digital cameras, and will work to produce photograms and photo essays.
6. The JCC in Manhattan, NYC
Geared towards children between the ages of eleven and fourteen, these workshops teach students how to use their DSLR camera to cultivate a critical eye and capture the images they want. Students will also be brought into the digital lab where they will learn how to retouch their photos and operate studio lighting.
5. Chicago Photography Center, Chicago
The Chicago Photography Center offers summer photo camps for high school students for only $275! With seven classes in total, students will be brought on outdoor and indoor adventures with their digital cameras.
4. New York Film Academy, NYC
The New York Film Academy offers digital photography camps for teens. They're considered to be intensive—so it may not be the best choice for a beginner—and they last for four weeks. Students will be given classes in shooting, digital imaging, history and theory, along with documentary and fine art.
3. Los Angeles Center for Photography, LA
Beginning July 21, the LA Center for Photography will be offering The Urban Landscape for Teens camp. This program supports SLR, DSLR and film cameras and the class size is typically no bigger than ten.

Students will be taught everything from the basic operating of a digital camera to the different types of typography, fonts, typefaces and how to use them. A similar program is also offered for children between the ages of twelve and seventeen.
1. International Center of Photography, NYC
I'm sure you've heard of ICP, hopefully not the band, but the photography school. Did you know they also offer teen courses? These summertime workshops include beginner and advanced courses in b&w and color photography, where teenagers will learn to tell stories with their photos and explore the summer landscapes of New York.

With such a vast range of photographers who all seem to specialize in different things—from candid portraiture to maternity and newborn baby shots—making the right choice is essential in acquiring that impeccable photo of your child (you know, the one that you'll put on a Christmas cards for the next three years).

1. Heidi Green Heidi's photography began in a classroom, but not a photography classroom—a preschool classroom.

With the likes of David Nightingale and Ben Willmore as some of his greatest photo influences, he has since become the Global Photo Evangelist for Google. As one of the judges for our 2014 EDU Photo Contest, Brian spoke with Resource about his career and his views on photography education.
As the Global Photo Evangelist for Google + and Nik, can you sum up what you do for our audience?
A big part of what I do is make sure that the products and services we offer are understood and known by all of our users. I also work very closely with our partners and influencers so photographers can understand what it means to be a photographer in the social sphere. We will work with them, receive feedback and also let them know what were up to. So, it’s really cool because I get to work with our product managers and our engineers to build the products, but then I also get to work with our users to make sure everything is understood, and can report back any questions or feedback directly to our product management and engineers.
So what products have you worked on?
Pretty much everything that has to do with Google+ photos, the Nik Collection and Snapseed.[caption id="attachment_40610" align="alignnone" width="640"] © Brian Matiash[/caption]And you’re a published photographer yourself. Can you tell me about that? I first started the photography journey my freshmen year of college in 1996 and I’ve been shooting ever since. I’ve definitely been fortunate, as my work’s been published in various newspapers and magazines like the Improper Bostonian and the Boston Globe. Those were really my first two publications where I was thought ‘oh man, my works actually gone to print.’ It was a pretty cool feeling, but since then I’ve been featured in Photoshop User Magazine and I write a monthly column for them, along with Photoshop Essentials Magazine. It’s been fun.Speaking of Photoshop, what do you think of the new Adobe software releases?I think the new Creative Cloud updates are great, especially for anyone who has had some sort of worry about spending several hundred dollars up front for Photoshop and Lightroom. To pay ten bucks a month for two of the most powerful desktop applications for photography is amazing, especially when you put it into contrast. Like, if you go to Starbucks you’re spending an upwards of six dollars for a Latte.[caption id="attachment_40611" align="alignnone" width="640"] © Brian Matiash[/caption]So have you tried out any of the new Adobe tablet imaging apps yet?I haven’t yet because I have an android tablet, so until they release an Android binary I have to kind of watch from the sidelines.I’ve seen your photo education features on a number of sites like Kelby TV and The Grid. Can you tell me about that?When I first started my blog there was an interesting transition from just sharing my photos to actually helping people, and I was able to do that just by going into more detail about how I created the image or the inspiration behind it. That kind of snowballed into getting more notoriety for my site, which eventually led to being hired by onOne software who makes photo editing plugins for Lightroom and Photoshop. I was hired specifically as the Curriculum and Education Manager so all of that culminated into being able to take my passion for photography and share it with others, helping them learn everything from techniques in the field to sitting in front of your computer.What are your general views on photography education? Do you believe in photo school or real life experience?Well, if you want to approach photography from a more academic sense where you want to learn about the fine art concepts or if you want to dabble in photojournalism, I think the experience and education you get from a photography or fine arts program is incredibly useful. It gives you more of a rich background for photography, and of course, there’s also classes you can take on how to develop film if that interests you. But if you’re looking at photography simply as a practice for taking a better portrait or creating a particular type of landscape, there’s no substitute in getting our there with your camera and getting to the location. And for a lot of that, I think the best real world advice would be to travel. You have to go to the places, and when you step out of your comfort zone when you’re traveling with your camera there’s no better education in terms of growing yourself as a photographer.[caption id="attachment_40612" align="alignnone" width="640"] © Brian Matiash[/caption]

But today, the company unveiled Shutterstock Palette, another integration that continues to evangelize the tools content manufacturers use to find the perfect stock imagery for their creations.Shutterstock Palette is a comprehensive image discovery tool within Shutterstock Labs that allows users to explore and discover images based on custom color schemes. So, this means rather than just entering keywords or sorting through image tags, users can choose up to five colors at once from the 82 color palette as the main filter for browsing through its extensive 35 million image library. Although it’s currently considered to be in prototype form, let’s take a quick look at how it works. First, you simply select the colors you’re looking for and let Palette do the rest. You’ll then notice a wide range of results, which you can then narrow down by choosing more colors or filtering between photos, illustrations and vectors. However, for some creating the perfect custom color scheme can be a bit tricky, which is when Palette’s unique characteristics begin to divulge.When you select a photo on Palette, the image will enlarge your screen. But if you then open the color selection tool, you’ll notice that the images colors are highlighted throughout the palette. You can then pick and choose which colors you would like to keep and which you would like to delete, while also adding extra colors to fully refine the search with the added option of entering keywords. Nevertheless, this is all driven by Palette’s patent-pending algorithms that use image data, search queries, and download behavior to collectively determine each unique palette’s colors.About a year ago, Shutterstock launched it’s first color-based image search called Spectrum and since then the company has clearly found a direct path towards innovation. Not to mention, Palette is fully responsive and mobile-friendly so you can get a very similar experience across smart phones and tablets.Check it out and start exploring!

And once you finally have your own children, the time only begins to move quicker. "They grow up so fast," is what everyone says, which is why you should cherish every moment of their childhood, capturing the best and worst of it along the way. Here are Resource's five main reasons to have a photo for every year of your child's life.
5. To keep track of your child's growth
Photo © Nico via Flickr Creative Commons This one's a given. Similar to marking the wall with your child's height each year, why not expand that with a full-blown image? The best way to capture the progress is to take the photo in the exact same spot each year, and eventually, you can create a slide-show and watch your kid's evolution from childhood to adulthood in a matter of minutes.
4. You can make light of the difficult times

I've snapped my right wrist twice, broke my leg in three places, was hit by a car and even fractured my eyebrow bone. Sure, these experiences—which were usually spread out by a year—nearly put my mother in a coma each time, however, my father was the one who would always snap a photo of the emergency room aftermath. Luckily, since I'm now sort of an adult and haven't been injured in years, laughing at these images of my past pain has become a staple of the annual family reunion.
3. To embarrass them in front of their friends

Sure, in the past parents have used naked baby photos or images of bad haircuts, but the real fun lies is among the most-awkward middle school pics you can dig up. Just think acne and braces.
2. So you always remember your child's phases
Photo © Barb via Flickr Creative Commons Kids are always going through phases, beginning with the "terrible two's" and constantly changing until they graduate college. For me, I've gone through a punk rock phase which led to an emo phase, after that I started skateboarding, and from there I became a musician. Hell, here I am right now writing for Resource. But while some phases are more painful than others, they're different for each child and looking back on his or her journey of self-discovery is something that you'll want to remember forever.
1. You can recall the good times when things aren't so great
Photo © marsmettnn tallahassee via Flickr Creative Commons Since we're talking about phases, let's talk about the teenage years. For most kids, this is the time when the "fuck you's" start to fly, their cuteness is replaced with body odor, and your interactions with them seem little different than speaking to a rock. In many situations, this will cause you to become distressed, frustrated and straight up pissed, which is when your photos will come in handy. Instead of allowing an argument to escalate to the Smith family apocalypse, just flip through the albums and recall the good times. You know, the times before you kid had turned into a conniving, know it all little brat.

This year, we took you on a ride through 12 Great Biking Images and 12 Inspirational Motorcycle Images in honor of our spring edition, but summer has arrived and it’s time to change it up. While our summer theme focuses on child photography, here are 12 heartwarming images of children playing from Offset. So, it's time to kick back, get off the bike and let the “awwws” begin to flow as the summer vibes bring you back to the most memorable moments of your childhood.
12. I figured this would be a great place to start because as an older brother, I remember relaxing on my parents bed with younger siblings. I especially remember this one time, where my baby brother rolled over and vomited directly on my stomach.[caption id="" align="alignleft" width="600"] © Antonierta Esis/Offset[/caption] 11. But hey, maybe girls are a bit more tame. As a guy it's hard to believe that any two siblings could just kick back and flip through a book at that age.[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="600"] © Blend/Offset[/caption] 10. Now that's more like it, maybe I spoke too soon? Although this portrait shows the adorable side of playing with dirt, just imagine the heart attack their mother had after they ran back into the house.[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="600"] © Val Ely/Offset[/caption] 9. Unless they have one of those forward-thinking fathers who always remembers to hose down his kids before his wife notices. Or better yet, maybe they even had a water spigot in their yard to wash away all of their parent's troubles.[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="600"] © Gary S. Chapman/Offset[/caption] 8. Now let's talk again about summer memories. I think it's safe to say that this B&W portrait captures the essence of carefree vacation and sibling bonding to the point where color isn't necessary. Just think about the feelings this image evokes and then color it in yourself.[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="600"] © Summer Murdock/Offset[/caption] 7. I like to think I'm a creative person, while one of my fondest childhood memories was waking up on a Sunday morning and sprawling out on the floor to color and draw. But there's no way my hair was ever as fresh as these two sisters. Good call, mom.[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="600"] © Blend/Offset[/caption] 6. Since there's been so many sister photos so far, let's change it up a bit. Of course, camping trips are always fun for boys, but see how the little one is laughing now? You better believe that within five minutes it will escalate and those giggles will turn to tears. But it's just brotherly love, right?[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="600"] © Blend / Offset[/caption] 5. Clearly this isn't a summer vacation, but what better time to check out the scenery with binoculars than when the leaves are gone, giving you better field of vision. Tell me I'm not the only one who still does this?[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="600"] © Deanna McCasland / Offset[/caption] 4. Sun burn shots are always my favorites, and I'd say this a perfect example. Besides the fact that an exposure like this is impressive given the extremely high amounts of light, the angelic nature of this shot is the perfect representation of what it was like to parade along the beach as a child.[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="600"] © Blend / Offset[/caption] 3. As someone who is nowhere near ready to have kids, even I know that it's every parents dream to have a son and daughter who can get along like this. One can only hope...[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="600"] © Summer Murdock / Offset[/caption] 2. One of the best parts of being of being a kid was going on play dates, but one of the best parts of those play dates was chilling with your friends pets. Sure, a cat and dog are fun, but just look how intriguing it is to own a bird.[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="600"] © Lawren Lu / Offset[/caption] 1. Remember the "awwws" I mentioned earlier? I always try to save the best for last and this is the epitome of it. It's hard to tell which is more adorable, the baby's curious stare or the child's sisterly love and affection.[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="600"] © Blythe Winslow / Offset[/caption]Check out more great images on the Offset site!

But despite constant anti-piracy complaints made by the RIAA, The Washington Post reported last year that increases in concert revenues have trumped the deficit. While the RIAA claims the data is inaccurate because it “double-counts some of the revenue in the ‘publishing’ category”—estimating a 27 percent decrease in music revenues between 2001 and 2012—there is one person who's suffering no matter which way you look at it: the producer.
If you trust The Washington Post’s report, it provides promising figures for both artists and bands, revealing that a strong live show and more tour dates will generate greater monetary earnings. But for the producer, whose job requires things like controlling recording sessions, writing tracks and mastering, to begin performing live can be a difficult transition to say the least.
Trends in Revenues of the Music Industry © London School of Economics as reported by The Washington Post
While the stock photo industry has always been huge, with stock photographers reporting a 96 percent sales increase since 2012, creatives are always looking for musical content to accompany their work. So why can’t the stock music industry fall into a similar niche? Well, it’s most likely because the outdated platforms and high pricing on sites like Stock Music and Audio Jungle have failed to attract a notable customer base—but those days may have now come to an end.
On May 20, popular stock photo and video market Shutterstock unveiled its music section, which, “expands [their] content offerings for customers and generates earnings for musicians looking for new ways to monetize their craft," according to it’s site, offering two simple licensing plans priced fairly at $79 dollars for a standard license and $499 for an enhanced license. With rates set at nearly half the prices of its competitors, it’s easy to see the benefits for the both the consumers and producers (because lower prices means higher sales volume, right?).
Similar to Shutterstock’s other asset types, they’ll be giving anyone from established musicians to hobbyists the opportunity to have their music marketed and sold. Not to mention, this all comes in addition to its sleek platform—a much needed innovation among the stock music industry.
The platform offers easy browsing through genres, themes and moods, along with a BPM (beats per minute) search tool so users can calculate the perfect tempo for their content. Users can also preview tracks, apply filters, view waveforms and utilize a persistent audio player that never interrupts when leaving the page. With such an extensive collection of tracks—including anything from classical mood music to EDM bangers with a drop—it could even be the perfect tool to construct an obscure soundtrack for a party that no one but you has ever heard.
In light of the recent addition of Shutterstock Music, licensing is currently available at a 30 percent discount. Browse the site, sign up today and find out how you can make money off your music.

But despite the festivities, it's also a time to reflect on how, well, great our country is. So, here are 14 classic photos of the American flag to help you fully appreciate the United States of 'Merica!
Epic Photos Of The American Flag

3) Uncle Sam "Buy War Bonds"
Here's a color poster from 1942 that was apparently used as an inspirational way to get Americans to buy war bonds?
2) Presentation of American Flag, 1968-74 Here's an image from the White House of President Nixon and his administration. Yes, I know what you're thinking, but as a writer I couldn't help but include this because of the journalism sparked by the Watergate scandal.

There was the infamous Olden shop, for example, which is talked about on photo forums as the former "place to go" for film needs, not to mention other stores such as Camera Barn and Camera Traders—all of which have now been now overrun by a myriad of identical digital photo outlets. While all of these were located around Herald Square, which was once known one of the best photo retail zones, there are still a few spots that can take care of your film essentials. Here are the best places to buy vintage cameras in NYC.7) Fotocare A favorite haunt of some of NY's most infamous shooters, Fotocare has been selling cameras in NYC since 1968. Located at 41 West 22nd Street, this photographic institution boasts one of the most diverse collections of used and vintage gear for sale. It's even rumored that there is a top secret collection of rare vintage items hidden deep inside Fotocare that only the most loyal customers have access to! For those of you looking for something special this is definitely the place to go. You can also check out their online store for a quick look at what's available.6) KM CameraKM Camera is located at 368 Broadway in Tribeca and although its 5,000 square foot showroom boasts mostly digital equipment, there is a much smaller stock of used 35 mm cameras and darkroom equipment. But don't let its website fool you, they carry much more vintage equipment than what is posted online.5) Panorama Camera Center [caption id="" align="alignnone" width="600"] Photo Courtesy Of Yelp © Asta S.[/caption]This store is located on the second floor of a building at 24 W 30th St, and although they will repair any camera regardless if it was made in 1990 or 2010, if you search online there are a ton of mixed reviews concerning their repairs. Nevertheless, they do have a vast a collection of used cameras and lenses and in this day and age beggars can't be choosers, right?4) B&H[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="600"] Photo Courtesy Of Flickr Creative Commons © Scott Beale[/caption]
Everyone knows B&H on 9th Ave. and despite their reputation, which differs depending on who you talk, they're much too prominent in the photo industry to ignore. Although they stock mostly DSLRs and video cameras, they also have a much smaller selection of used vintage cameras. Will you find a hidden gem here? Probably not. However, if you know what you want and you're looking for something basic B&H should have you covered. 3) Adorama [caption id="" align="alignleft" width="600"] Photo Courtesy Of Flickr Creative Commons © Lorianne DiSabato[/caption]
Adorama, located at 42 West 18th Street, is a huge camera emporium with a two floors of equipment. However, their used pricing tends to be a bit random so it's very possible to find a good deal (we suggest looking up Ebay prices on equipment beforehand). Also, a lot of their vintage stuff isn't on display, so don't be shy and be sure to ask to sort through their hidden gear. 2) Willoughby's [caption id="" align="alignnone" width="600"] Photo Courtesy Of Flickr Creative Commons © C.McKane[/caption]
Willoughby's was established in 1898 and is recognized as New York's oldest camera emporium. With a large collection of 35 mm cameras, they also offer service and repairs, film developing and digital imaging. The store is located at 298 5th Avenue. 1) Flea Markets and Thrift Shops[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="600"] Photo via Flickr Creative Commons © VIPNYC[/caption]
These days, this could very well be your best option if your looking for something out of the ordinary. Although there's a high chance of walking out empty-handed, if you're really in the market for something special you'll take the time to look. We've gotten wind of camera vendors who have been spotted at the Brooklyn Flea and the Hell's Kitchen Flea Market, but we've also heard there's no telling when they'll show up. As for thrift shops, we recommend checking out just about any shop you happen to stumble upon.

If you’ve read our Golden Rules of Extreme Bike Photography, you may have noticed rule number four: use your flash correctly. In this, we walked you through the basics, for example, making sure your flash doesn't go off in a rider's face as he or she launches into the air, causing a wipe-out and maybe even a lawsuit. But this is just one of the many golden rules (or maybe just common sense) and using your flash correctly is actually a bit more complex. Here are some tips for using flash on your next bike shoot.
7. Use a short flash duration
One of the main things any action sport photographer looks for in lighting is the flash's ability to freeze action. So the shorter the flash duration the easier it is for you to stop motion in place for a split second. This technique is great for overpowering ambient light for a clean and crisp image of the action.
6. Experiment with shutter drag or slow-sync setting
A shutter drag or slow-sync setting will use the flash to freeze the subject with a slowed shutter speed to capture ambient light. This will also cause the image to blur to help convey movement and can be used with an on or off-camera flash. To do this, simply set your camera to aperture priority and set the flash sync mode to slow.
5. Pan with your subject during exposure
Combined with a slow-sync flash, pan along with your subject as he or she moves. This will help you capture interesting effects with blurred backgrounds while the main subject will be in focus and frozen by the flash.
4. Try zooming during exposure
Zooming your lens in and out during your exposure will also create interesting blurred backgrounds. Similar to a panning technique, the flash will keep your subject in focus while you can convey movement but from a different direction.
3. Keep track of the rider’s gear
While a BMX biker may be riding with no helmet or pads, a downhill biker may be wearing a helmet with a visor; if your flash is set too high it will create a shadow over his or her face. Although high flash settings may look great on the back of the camera—don’t do it. You can always brighten it up on the computer afterward.
2. Have your flash positioned correctly
Oftentimes, the sun itself can serve as a second flash that is extremely powerful and completely free. The first thing to do is figure out where the sun is and position your flash on the opposite side of the rider so he or she is sandwiched between the light. Since this will take quite a bit of power to add extra fill light on the rider, make sure you get your flash as close as possible.
Later in the day when the sun is less strong, you can also try positioning yourself on the other side of or behind the rider. For each technique, the sun will create a nice rim light around the subject and your flash will expose the rider so he or she is not a silhouette.

And now, with only a couple weeks left until the release of this year's summer edition—for one last time—we've decided to extend our bike theme even further. So, throw on your helmet and hold on tight because we've shifted into first gear for an equally intense and compelling journey. Here are 12 inspirational motorcycle images we've chosen from the Offset collection.12. Since Resource is based in Brooklyn I figured this would be a great place to start since it has the DUMBO Archway resemblance. Is it me or do couples riding around the city on Vespas always seem to signal the official start of the summer?

In this depth-of-field shot, you've made it to northern Westchester (which is not upstate) and you can hear your friend's bikes growling along in the near distance.

9. You've finally made it up north and in this portrait you're pissed. Your friends have hopped on their dirt bikes and hit the trails without you—but you can't let your anger show. Folks don't take kindly to Brooklyn attitudes up in these parts.

8. But at least you have a whole day of riding ahead of you and it's a nice change from the crowded New York streets. You do a wheelie to lighten the mood on your way to the trails in this impeccable sun burn shot.

7. Finally, you've reunited with your buddies and it's all in good fun, right? Wrong. You challenge them to a $100 dollar revenge race and post it on BuddyBets so no one can back out. You promise your photographer a twenty if you win because he's about to get dirty for this shot.

6. So at least your frustrations have paid off, literally. Right after your photographer snaps this victory shot you share a six-pack with you friends and get hyped for some motocross.

5. "Can you even air, bro?" says your friend named Chad.
