For the latest episode of their Pro Tog, Cheap Camera Challenge series, DigitalRev invited fashion photographer Paul John Bayfield to shoot street and fashion photos using a super cheap (and badly reviewed) Vivitar DVR 781HD action camera.
Here are some of the shots he was able to create using the camera:
“With the cheap camera, Paul has shown that it’s not just about the gear,” says DigitalRev presenter Kai Wong. “Life as a professional photographer is about building relationships quickly with people that you’ve just met, and having a genuine willingness to know more about your subject.”
“It’s not just enough to appreciate the visual, but also to have an understanding of the story behind it. Having a real interest in your subject gets you interesting shots.”
