Rankin Documents Photo Shoot Using 15 Autographer Wearable Cameras


One of the big emerging ideas in the camera world is the idea of wearable cameras that automatically capture your memories for you. Memoto is the wearable camera project that caused the biggest splash in 2012, but a month before it was announced, there was another camera that made a quieter entrance. It was the Autographer, a camera shaped like a pack of gum that uses a number of different sensors to intelligently snap photos during interesting moments in your life.

Faking It: The Difference Between Reality and an Airbrushed Finish

We hear it all the time: magazine covers aren’t real. These models and celebrities are made up, photographed by professionals and, most infamously, airbrushed to perfection. But there’s a big difference between hearing about it, and watching it happen with your own two eyes.

Behind The Scenes at a Photo Shoot for Vater Drum Sticks

Here’s a cool video showing what went on behind the scenes when photographer Sasha Leahovcenco was asked to shoot a drum stick ad for Vater Percussion. His subject was drummer Mike Johnston and everything from his choice of venue to the ideas that led to the final two shots make for an awesome ad.

Behind the Scenes at a Paralympic Photo Shoot

Capturing photos of our Olympic and Paralympic athletes is an important job that no photographer takes lightly — after all, we’ve all seen the kind of firestorm that can result from not doing it well. So when Benjamin Von Wong had the opportunity to photograph Olympic Para Dressage Rider Natasha Baker, he made sure to do it right.

This behind the scenes video shows how he went about planning, lighting and executing the three shots that he was after. Fortunately, all the work seems to have paid off: the final three images capture three unique (and uniquely great) sides to Natasha Baker and the sport she competes in at the world class level.

Photo Shoot of Andy Samberg Portraying Several Iconic Tennis Champions

It wouldn’t be the weekend without a behind the scenes look at a photo shoot, and if we can also inject a little bit of humor into it, well, in that case everyone wins.

Shoot Surfing Photos on Dry Land with a Tarp and Skateboard
