We date virtually, shop virtually, and even go to school virtually. Really, the attraction to doing these things online is obvious: you can save time and energy from the comfort of your own home while efficiently multi-tasking a number of projects or endeavors. As a result, real world institutions such as shopping malls and college campuses are losing money and shutting down across the country.I grew up at the forefront of this shift, becoming accustomed to flirting with crushes on dating apps while simultaneously shopping for shoes without missing a beat. I'm able to have a date every night of the week and a different pair of shoes to wear for them. But the only thing I haven't adapted to quite well is online education.Though I spent majority of my schooling in a real classroom, I once took an online psychology course in college. For me it was so un-engaging that I forgot to take my midterm exam; without an IRL commitment to keep me accountable it was difficult to take it seriously. I'm typically the person raising my hand to ask questions and encourages others to interact as well. Basically, I'm a teacher's pet.So when I heard about Digital Product Studio's (DPS) initiative to revolutionize the online education world, I wondered if in-person workshops would, definitely, begin to become obsolete. Since its launch in 2016, DPS has specialized in creating digital educational products through online communities and membership sites. What is unique about their platform is the advanced live-streaming and interactive technologies utilized in its courses. It also boasts a lineup of renowned photography industry educators, including Sue Bryce Education, The Wedding School, Meg Bitton Live and more. For now, DPS is only offering photography-related classes. In the press release sent out by DPS on Feb. 1 2017, it was revealed that three aforementioned educational platforms will be producing new content with the addition of two platforms for Photoshop and Lightroom. Ben Willmore will teach "Learn to Love Photoshop" and Kelly Brown will examine "Newborn Posing."Whether you're new to photography or not, the videos are an easy way to broaden your knowledge or simply refine your skills. Unlike reading a textbook, one member explains the much needed realism that watching a video provides,
"What made me want to continue watching Sue, was the fact that her posing is real, I always had a problem with posing videos/training and she made sense, real sense, her posing methods are convincing and real, not artificial and fake, you get the soul of the person with her posing techniques, not some shop mannequin." However, all quality education it comes with a price. You can visit the DPS website for more information on the cost of each course by clicking each individual platform.

I guarantee you will want to pack your bags after seeing all the magical places Kaminesky has been.
Eric Kim Eric Kim's street photography is both inspiring and simple. Most of these blogs give specific, in-depth advice, like what kind of cameras to use, or tutorials on the latest editing software, but Kim's posts relay a different message: His philosophy is if you want to be a photographer, just go out a do it. In his own words: "no matter what your situation in life is, there is no better time for you to be a photographer than now." What I like about Kim's photo blog is that he offers advice on how to just take the chance in following you passion. He also has a YouTube page, where he reviews equipment and posts videos of his street photo shoots.

To create a stunning portfolio eventually you’ll need to reach out to your industry peers and seek their help. Collaborating with others in the same field of creative work as you can be rewarding, but sometimes overwhelming. In this article I am going to go over how to reach out to other industry professionals and the expectations on working with a collaborative team. Knowing Where You StandIt’s easy as an aspiring photographer to want to jump in right away and start shooting with top models and other professionals, but hold on cowboy, before you start emailing modeling agencies looking to test their models there’s something you should know: You have to possess the work to back up your desires. I’ve seen far too many budding photographers get discouraged when they reach out to agencies only to be rejected for test shooting. You need to already be an established photographer before an agency will let you shoot their models for test shoots.[caption id="attachment_69874" align="aligncenter" width="597"] BTS shot of Jess Guidry in Dallas, Texas[/caption] Don’t disparage when I say words like "established" or "experienced." Being experienced and the amount of time you have been shooting are not necessarily mutually inclusive. I’ve met some photographers who only have a few months of shooting under their belt that have amazing work and then I’ve met some photographers who have been shooting upwards of 20+ years and their work is still quite lacking. If you know your photography needs a little bit more work or you’re just learning, then trying to book a professional model for a trade shoot is probably not going to work out.
If you don't know if you're coming off as creepy to a model or not, chances are you're probably a total creeper. Trade Vs. PaidThere is a common misconception that just because a model has done trade work in the past that she’ll trade with any photographer. I have personally seen photographers become genuinely insulted when a model says no to trade work or tries to give the photographer his/her rates. Models are not work mules, and the more professional they are the less they’ll be as eager to work with aspiring photographers. They know their worth, just as we all should. They’re only going to collaborate with someone that they know will be worth the time and energy expended. All trade work should be mutually beneficial for both parties. If not, then the party with the most to gain from the shoot might be either turned down for that trade work or asked to pay the other party’s rate, which is not only fair, but should be expected. [caption id="attachment_69871" align="aligncenter" width="2048"] Lizzie Gunst by: Rebecca Britt Photography[/caption]So, when you approach a model with an offer for a collaborative project and she declines with a “No, thank you. I’m not interested at this time.” The worst thing you could possibly do to not only your career, but also your personal growth as a photographer is to get offended. You should never assume what another person’s motivations are for declining an offer. Perhaps they’re completely booked, maybe they’re taking a break from modeling and are concentrating on other aspects of their lives, or they can see that perhaps your skill set needs a little bit more fine tuning.
You should never assume what another person’s motivations are for declining an offer. When I first started shooting in my local community there was one particular model that I was itching to shoot, Sara (George) Longoria. She had experience on "America’s Next Top Model" and was one of the more professional models in the area. When I first approached her I was very politely turned down. I took the rejection with as much grace as possible and worked on honing my skills instead with other more inexperienced models. A few years later after I had built a style and brand for myself I approached her again and she accepted my offer. Now, she is a great friend, professional ally, and my go-to model for my experimental personal projects.[caption id="attachment_69844" align="aligncenter" width="1500"] Sara Longoria by: Rebecca Britt Photography[/caption]Don't be THAT Guy I know that this has been said multiple times in a multitude of different ways, but guys... don't be creepy when approaching a model. If you go straight to a model asking for inappropriate snapshots or ask if she does nudes right off the bat, expect to be either ignored or brushed off in less-polite ways by the model. If you don't know if you're coming off as creepy to a model or not, chances are you're probably a total creeper. The worst is when you are insistent on getting a model to work with you and can't take no for an answer. A model should have the right to say "No" without being questioned on why or guilt tripped into working with you. Learn to take rejection with grace, because you'll be facing a ton of rejection throughout your career.I don't know how many times I have to say this, but models are people that are not there solely for photographers' whims and fancies. They are not property and you don't own them or their services. Sure, they can be muses to your work, but you should never assume that a model will only model just for you. It would be a disservice to their careers. So don't be "that guy" or become saddled with the title of "GWC" or "Guy With Camera." Working with MUAs (makeup artists) and Hair Stylists To really start producing high-quality personal projects, eventually you’ll need to bring in other people to your collaborative art team. The most obvious choice would be bringing in a makeup artist and hair stylist. Sometimes they’re one and the same, and other times they’re separate. It’s like photography and videography; there are some people that tackle both and some (like myself) that only offer photography. It’s the same concept. I cannot stress how important it is to utilize professional makeup artists into your portfolio work. If you rely on the model or subject to take care of their own makeup it could very easily lead to a conflicting look for your project and extra added time to post-production which you want to avoid at all costs. [caption id="attachment_69866" align="aligncenter" width="1601"] Deshea Exclusive by: Heather Deshea Harrison[/caption]Now, the question that gets kicked around a lot on social media is: Should MUAs/Hairstylists do portfolio/collaborative work for free? The answer is very simple: Never. As photographers and models we are contributing our time, our skill set and creativity to a shoot. MUAs (and hairstylists) offer the same, as well, but they in comparison use consumable product. That makeup kit that they’re lugging around costs money and sometimes some serious dough. Have you ever walked into Sephora and tried shopping there? If not, I suggest you do, especially if you’re a male photographer and don’t have a very good understanding of how much makeup costs. I can walk out of a Sephora and have spent over $200 easily on three products of makeup. Now you may be wondering what’s the difference between our photo equipment and their makeup kit. While we do spend quite a bit on equipment, for the most part it isn’t consumable. MUAs are constantly having to replacing items in their kit and that can lead to quite an investment. A lens will last us years, a lipstick will only last a few weeks for them.
As photographers we're so quick to jump on the "F*ck You, Pay Me" train, but when another industry professional asks us to pay for a portfolio project, it's asinine. Do you see the hypocrisy? Most professional MUAs tend to have kit fees for collaborative work. Kit fees are discounted rates for their services that are set aside for working collaboratively with other people in the industry. The fees will vary depending on the experience of the MUA and the quality of makeup in their kit. If the MUA is using products from a local drugstore, expect that kit fee to be considerably less than someone whose kit has high-end brands like Urban Decay, Dior, Stila, and Chanel. One of the things that I hear in my local community that irritates me to no end is that a MUA will be approached for free work in exchange for the finished photos and that MUA will inform the photographer of their kit fee only to be mocked or scoffed at. If you do this… stop now. You as the photographer are approaching them for a discounted rate and if you’re expecting free work then automatically you’re disrespecting that artist. Drop the entitlement. As photographers we're so quick to jump on the "F*ck You, Pay Me" train, but when another industry professional asks us to pay for a portfolio project, it's asinine. Do you see the hypocrisy?[caption id="attachment_69879" align="aligncenter" width="818"] Nicole Ausband-Ting with Ferocity Makeup[/caption]If you do agree on their kit fee, please pay it in advance and in full before the shoot. Just like their clients and your clients have to pay a retainer the same should be said for their collaborative work as well. I should also mention that if you do pay a kit fee you still need to be open to their ideas and opinions on the project. It is called a collaborative project for a reason. If you approach a makeup artist with a very specific look or idea and are not open to input or changes then expect to pay the MUAs full rate. The only exception to this rule is when a MUA is donating her time to a good cause, which should never be confused for your personal, portfolio building, project. Obviously if a MUA is offering their services for free then that's their prerogative, but never assume or feel entitled that they should. Final ThoughtsTo wrap this up, the main point I wanted to raise awareness of is expectations. We all can have different expectations on how things should work when collaborating with other industry professionals at the beginning, but if you take the time to understand mutual worth and respect in the industry the more approachable you become as a photographer. You should always aim to be as approachable as possible to people you feel are worthy of your skill level and even to those you don’t. You never know how that person might develop over time and kindness goes a long way.
The main point I wanted to raise awareness of is expectations. I find that as an industry, we tend to grow our art styles and experience together. If you approach models and other industry artists as equally important pieces of your projects and with respect, you’ll quickly learn that it will be returned. Learning to work with others in your field of work can not only help you build a well-rounded portfolio, but your reputation, as well. Your reputation is your biggest attribute and nurturing relationships within your industry will only positively affect it.[Feature Image: Rebecca Thiemke shot by: Rebecca Britt Photography] [post_title] => Tips for Building Your Portfolio: Best Practices for Approaching Models and Other Industry Professionals [post_excerpt] => [post_status] => publish [comment_status] => open [ping_status] => closed [post_password] => [post_name] => approaching-models-and-other-industry-professionals-to-build-your-portfolio [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2017-01-31 12:40:16 [post_modified_gmt] => 2017-01-31 17:40:16 [post_content_filtered] => [post_parent] => 0 [guid] => http://resourcemagonline.com/?p=69788 [menu_order] => 0 [post_type] => post [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 1 [filter] => raw ) => WP_Post Object ( [ID] => 69708 [post_author] => 30241 [post_date] => 2016-08-18 11:14:49 [post_date_gmt] => 2016-08-18 15:14:49 [post_content] => Last week we reported the shocking news that west coast photographic education icon Brooks was closing its doors this October, and right on its heels the Hallmark Institute for Photography has also announced their closure this fall. Located in Montague, Massachusetts, the Hallmark school was considered one of the best, if not the best, school for photographic education. As of this morning, the for-profit school has listed itself as closed on Google.As reported by Recorder, the school had seen some rather unfortunate incidents smear their otherwise good name in the past couple years:
"...scandal smeared the school’s name in 2014 when former president and then owner of the school, George J. Rosa III, pleaded guilty to related charges of bank fraud and tax evasion. According to the Department of Justice, the former owner spent $2.6 million of company funds on personal purchases."

Brooks Institute announced that fall classes will not be held and that they will be closing their doors on Oct. 31st. This news comes as an absolutely shocker, to the 150 new students enrolled for said classes.This announcement falls after a leadership change at the school earlier this week. Following the termination of former President Edward Clift, many members of the board of trustees resigned, as a statement towards Clift's firing from Christine Lin - owner of Brooks Institute since June 2015. Lin immediate assumed duties as the interim president following the termination of Clift's three-year contract.With a decline in student enrollment, this may come as no surprise to some. However, following in the footsteps of other successful art institutes, like Savannah College of Art and Design, many had held hope for the prestigious art institute. Brooks staff is currently working on alternative plans for the many students who were currently enrolled, with plans to attend this Fall.While Brooks has not updated the news on their website, they have announced the closure publicly on their twitter page -- Additional news on this story is unclear, and I have reached out to Brooks Institute for a statement on the matter. As a statement becomes available, I will update this story as needed.

Big budgets equal big explosions and there is plenty of time and effort pumped into the tiniest of details. Augmented reality is almost entirely made up of these intricate 3D renderings and as shiny as it is, it does come with a steep amount of man-hours. Researchers at MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence have taken a different angle on augmented reality (AR) and have broken some very important ground on revolutionizing the process."Interactive Dynamic Video" works entirely based off of vibration. A camera setup records a video of the object as vibrations of different frequencies pass through, referred to as "Vibration Modes." This information is then run through a clever algorithm that searches for even the tiniest wiggle. The object and its potential for movement is analyzed and given interactive properties and, voila, an IDV is born. This new imaging model can be pushed, pulled, stacked, poked and punched, just like in real life.While the tech to track and animate movements is already there in the film and video game industries - green screen, etc. - most of this work takes careful preparation and needs a controlled environment and specific lighting to work. What makes MIT's innovation so unique is not only it's time and money saving implication, but its ability to create these realistically interactive images in an uncontrolled environment. You only need a simple camera setup and editing software to create these IDVs and there are plenty of applications open to improvement by using this tech.Of course, there's VR, but engineering and film could benefit significantly. Lowering the production cost of a feature without compromising the quality is an option. Checking the structural integrity of a structure is another.What do you think of this new tech?

No matter where you are in life and business, there are always things to improve. And when it comes to daily inspiration for growth I like the digestibility of a good podcast. Lots of people listen to music when they edit or do other office work, but I like to put on a podcast and try to learn something. Sure, there are tons of blogs, books, and traditional workshops you can utilize to improve your business, but a podcast is a great no effort way to ingest information.
Here are five of my favorite podcasts that I listen to whenever I have some free ear time. I purposely left off podcasts that talk directly about photography, because running a wedding photography business is about so much more than just photography.
The Tim Ferriss Show
This is one of my favorite podcasts overall, because it touches on so many different areas of business and life. If you haven't hear of Tim Ferriss, you have probably never been on the internet before (and we know that's not true). He is the author of the incredibly popular book The 4-Hour Workweek, and his podcast is consistently one of the top on iTunes (named "Best of 2014" and "Best of 2015"). In each episode he interviews someone and extracts key insights into how they are successful, and how you can apply those techniques and methods into your own business or life.
Each episode, I deconstruct world-class performers from eclectic areas (investing, sports, business, art, etc.) to extract the tactics, tools, and routines you can use. This includes favorite books, morning routines, exercise habits, time-management tricks, and much more. Prior guests include Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jamie Foxx, Edward Norton, Tony Robbins, Maria Popova, Peter Thiel, Marc Andreessen, Amanda Palmer, Malcolm Gladwell, Rick Rubin, Reid Hoffman, Jon Favreau, Whitney Cummings, Mike Shinoda, and dozens more.
You can listen and subscribe to The Tim Ferriss Show at http://fourhourworkweek.com/podcast/.
The Dave Ramsey Show

Entrepreneur on Fire with John Lee Dumas
Similar to The Tim Ferriss Show, EOFire with John Lee Dumas consists of interviews with entrepreneurs. A key difference here is that this podcast comes out daily and is much shorter, usually clocking in at under 30 minutes. Because it's produced daily, there is a much wider variety of people interviewed, and not just big time names either, but regular entrepreneurs that have great tips and lessons to share regarding running a business. EOFire has also been awarded "Best of iTunes" in the past.
Failure is part of every journey, and on EOFire, the first story we share is our guest’s biggest failure and their lessons learned. The second story we dive into is our guest’s AH-HA moment and the steps they took to turn that moment into success. The grand finale is The Lightning Round, where I ask six rapid-fire questions to extract nuggets of wisdom for you.

The 5 AM Miracle
I know we're not all early risers (in fact, I know some people who work for themselves just to be able to sleep in), but I'm a huge fan of getting up early in the morning and getting shit done.

The 5 AM Miracle with Jeff Sanders is a weekly podcast that comes out on Mondays and tackles the topic of being productive in the morning and using that to kickstart a productive day. Sometimes he interviews guests and sometimes he just covers a topic, but either way you'll learn something valuable to apply to your mornings.
The 5 AM Miracle is a weekly podcast dedicated to dominating your day before breakfast. My goal is to help you bounce out of bed with enthusiasm, create powerful lifelong habits, and tackle your grandest goals with extraordinary energy. Every Monday morning I release a new episode that either features a fascinating guest OR I jump on the mic myself and dive into a new topic. The core topics include early mornings, healthy habits, personal development, and rockin’ productivity!

Using ExifTool technology, they analyzed just under seven million photos across various platforms including Flickr, 500px and Pixabay and have developed a simple way of illustrating the wealth of data they've acquired. The main goal is to give some insight into what's currently popular in cameras, lenses, as well as shoot settings.What makes it unique is its weekly updating, meaning the information will grow over time. Which is more trendy, DSLR or mirrorless? Who's winning the big Canon vs. Nikon debate? From week to week, you may not see much change, but further into the future it will provide easily accessible evidence into trends, and possibly provide the average user with the power to make future predictions. Whether it's exploring new techniques or just a first time buyer figuring out what tech will suit their needs, ExploreCams has done the world a favor.The infographic gives insight into a few broad but key areas. Each segment is split into a top 5 with an "other" group to fill in the gaps. The camera body categories focus on global popularity by brand, which is also broken down into individual brand camera body or lens preferences. You can also see what are the most prevalent lens combinations for in demand cameras. So as of writing this, if I wanted to know what the most used lens was for a Canon EOS 7D, I could see that it's the Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS. Perusing the the rest of the colorful diagrams, you'll also come across various camera settings. Focal Length, ISO, exposure mode, shutter speed, and aperture are all represented giving you an overall understanding of the range most photographers tend to stay in. The cherry on top is that you can click through on some of the lenses and cameras found in this infographic and jump into ExploreCams related archives. It might not change the entire world as we know it, but it sheds light on detail that would take a lifetime to acquire on our own.

He makes some extremely compelling photos from the streets of Tokyo, and he does it by following nothing but his desire to make something beautiful.
It might be an interaction between people. It might be the absence of people. A lot of people look at my work and ask, “How did you set up that shot?” I don’t. Dave is the subject of the latest SmugMug film, a series of videos with some crazy good production value, which tells the story of a particular photographer, and tries to get in their heads to find out what makes them tick. This particular short is full of busy scenes intermingled with serene environments and excellent sound design, all narrated by Dave's passion for the art of street photography.Thought he video does an excellent job telling a full story, if you need more there is a full interview on SmugMug that goes into even more detail on Dave's process, and we highly recommend you check it out.

Today Musicbed released a feature-length documentary that follows different artists on what drives them to create. Called “MAKE,” the film looks at the hearts, minds, successes and failures of creators with a cast of visionary artists, designers, filmmakers and musicians answering deeply personal questions about their creative lives. While this is not the first documentary about creativity, “MAKE” aims to go deeper and get more personal about how an artist’s identity in what they make is affected when their ego gets in the way.
I've watched most of the film now, and it's pretty excellent. The cinematography is engaging, the story is easy to follow, and the whole thing really speaks to me as a creative professional. I highly recommend you check it out!Featuring: Indie Musicians Sylvan Esso, Flagship, Drew Holcomb and Dave King | Filmmakers Eliot Rausch, Salomon Ligthelm, Jonathan Bregel, Reed Morano A.S.C. | Designers Aaron Draplin, Danny Yount.Listen to the soundtrack here: mscbd.fm/29W3JKvMeet the cast here: make.musicbed.com/castWhy Musicbed Made a Feature-Length Documentary: mscbd.fm/whywmdk [post_title] => Musicbed Releases Feature-Length Documentary on Creatives: MAKE [post_excerpt] => [post_status] => publish [comment_status] => open [ping_status] => closed [post_password] => [post_name] => musicbed-releases-feature-length-documentary-on-creatives-make [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2016-07-19 11:39:35 [post_modified_gmt] => 2016-07-19 15:39:35 [post_content_filtered] => [post_parent] => 0 [guid] => http://resourcemagonline.com/?p=68772 [menu_order] => 0 [post_type] => post [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [filter] => raw ) => WP_Post Object ( [ID] => 68728 [post_author] => 47235 [post_date] => 2016-07-18 11:30:23 [post_date_gmt] => 2016-07-18 15:30:23 [post_content] => Safe to say, I'm a writer rather than a photographer. But I do know how to handle a camera, even though I currently "only" have a Canon EOS 400D and its ultra standard 18-55mm lens. I used to have a little more than that, but, well, circumstances...Every once in a while, I go out to take some pictures. They're not world class, but I'm doing okay. And when I moved to New York a couple of months ago, I was looking forward to hitting the streets with my camera during Manhattanhenge.For those among you who don't know what on earth that is: it's when the sun perfectly aligns with the main East–West streets of New York City's central borough. It occurs four times a year, on dates evenly spaced around the summer solstice. This year, on May 29 and July 11, a "full sun" would appear just above the horizon. On May 30 and July 12, the same would happen with a "half sun", which is when the solar disk already partially hides below the horizon.Having missed any previous occasion, my final option to do what I had always wanted, was July 12. I packed my 400D and went to the corner of Union Square and 14th Street right after work - one of the places where I would get a good view on Manhattanhenge, according to the American Museum of Natural History. I also carried along my girlfriend's Canon EOS 6D with 24-105mm lens, since she would try to meet me in time to take some pictures too.I was about half an hour "early" - it would take place at 8.20pm - and I could already see some fellow amateurs frolicking around me. Which is immediately the first thing I learned from trying to capture Manhattanhenge: be on time. Google can only prepare you so much. You need to experience the actual environment from where you'll be trying to shoot the magic. Traffic, lights, trees, constructions... you need time to discover and experience anything that could help (or hinder) that perfect shot.[caption id="attachment_68742" align="alignnone" width="1250"] Make sure you have enough time to explore the area you're shooting from.[/caption]Related to that, I learned that it is important to know what you want to shoot before it all starts. Because the actual Manhattanhenge only lasts a minute, and you can't waste precious seconds on trying to capture different things. Go for one or two types of shots, and try to make the best of it.Which is why it is important to do some decent research and to go rehearse. Google only knows so much. If you think a location is good, it's a good idea to go and check it out in advance. Who knows, maybe it's not so good after all - like I experienced on the corner of Union Square and 14th Street. And since I went on the last of the four possible days, I have to wait another year to have a better go.[caption id="attachment_68743" align="alignnone" width="1250"] Trees, traffic, a building, a construction crane... The corner of Union Square and 14th Street just wasn't the best spot.[/caption]Come with good gear too. A 400D with 18-55mm lens just won't make give you that classic, burning red shot. Which doesn't mean it was useless, though. I tried some other things with it that did work out.[caption id="attachment_68744" align="alignnone" width="1465"] How to be creative with your 400D and 18-55mm lens during Manhattanhenge.[/caption]Tripods are useful - especially to lift your camera above everyone else's - but slightly clumsy. Furthermore, don't bother bringing along several lenses. By the time you made a switch, the sun will be gone. And don't trust auto mode to do everything for you. Learn a thing or two about your camera's settings, and find out how to use them for optimal results.[caption id="attachment_68750" align="alignnone" width="1250"] Consider a tripod to rise above everyone's head[/caption]Thank God that I brought my girlfriend's 6D. That's the type of camera you may want to consider shooting an epic sunset with (if only I knew how to handle the camera a little better). Below, you'll see what I think are my best two shots of Manhattanhenge. Notice that one doesn't even have the sun on it. Which makes it just your average New York sunset picture, I guess. Oh, and know that you won't be the only one, so try to be original. And traffic will hate you for standing in the middle of the crossroad.[caption id="attachment_68746" align="alignnone" width="1250"] You're never alone during Manhattanhenge.[/caption][caption id="attachment_68749" align="alignnone" width="938"] So try to be creative, for example by adding a taxi to your composition.[/caption][caption id="attachment_68745" align="alignnone" width="1250"] And traffic will always hate you.[/caption]Have you ever successfully captured Manhattanhenge?

MAKE is a feature-length documentary for the modern creative, produced by the team at Musicbed. This film is a question. A conversation starter. It’s an examination of the reasons we create and the things that drive us to make something new — passion or success. The film looks to examine the myth of creative success and what it means to live a healthy life as an artist.
I'm a huge fan of drones because of the creative opportunities they allow. I am generally talking about aerial video and photo, but photographer Krystle Wright had other ideas when she decided to mount Canon speedlights to one and use it to capture a photo a highly unusual photo with some serious drama-factor. What started out as just another interesting idea culminated into some of the best photos of the type that I've ever seen.
"I came into this evening with no expectations but to only experiment and have fun knowing that this was a bonus," Krystle said. "Embarking on a passion project is an interesting rabbit hole to venture down. I came into this shoot with a clear concept in my mind and as usual, it doesn't quite go to exact plan but that's the beauty of working in the outdoors."
The shoot took place in Hood River, Oregon at the waterfall known as Spirit Falls. The concept was to see what it would be like utilizing a drone to position the Speedlites in a particular way, as you can imagine it’s not easy to access waterfalls to start with, and positioning lighting exactly where you need it normally borderlines on impossible thanks to limited access to get into the desired position. "I rigged myself to a rope on a tree overhanging the lip of the waterfall to shoot the kayakers as they paddled underneath me," she told us.
"One aspect of this shoot I had not fully considered was the fact that each time the kayaker would paddle over, I would only have one shot. Over the 3 days, without including the test shots when setting the flashes, when it came time to shooting the action, I may have only shot enough to fill one roll of film. And I absolutely love this aspect because it really focuses back to quality over quantity."
When I first got into photography with my Kodak disposable cameras that I'd take on school camps, I remember planning out my shots that I would allow only 3 of 4 photos per day so that the roll of film would last the whole trip," Krystle said. "I felt like this shoot encapsulated a similar feeling and it brought up a lot of excitement and also nervousness. I think it's important to remove the guarantee as it strips away the method of playing it safe. Its a scary feeling to realise that this all might potentially fall apart but it also pushes me to be on my toes and not fall into a lazy rhythm."
"Our final two days were spent deep in the Olympic Peninsula at Hamma Hamma falls which is a 60ft drop. The momentum and vibe amongst the group was absolutely amazing and made the whole experience worth it! Often as a nomad, I am by myself and I worry that maybe I've become too accustomed in being by myself. But when I can share my passion with other similar like-minded friends, wow, what an incredible atmosphere to be a part of."
As you can imagine, even with aerial assistance, getting the lights into the right position was incredibly challenging, espeically with the knowledge that there would be limited chances to capture the image Krystle was going for. "It was incredibly tough to position the flashes on this one as this waterfall was much bigger. The first night, we only had two kayakers and the flash failed to fire on the second run. I was absolutely gutted and it could've been easy to move on but we rallied and came back with a bigger group and it felt right to finish in what I had set out to do. I was always taught, always finish what you started and we nailed the second night. For now I am happy with what we all achieved together, though I know in time, my mind begins to tick over and start thinking how can I evolve this project and raise the bar again."
I'm still incredibly impressed with the photos, which are significantly more compelling than I thought they would be when I first heard about the project. I mean, come on. This is amazing:
Super unusual, very dramatic, and totally captures the moment. Great stuff!
