        • Katie and Justin - A Hybrid Wedding Experiment


          from Giulio Sciorio / Added

          991 Plays / / 1 Comment

          An experiment in hybrid photography, I shot the wedding of my friends Justin and Katie. I had full creative control on this shoot which allowed me, as a portrait photographer, to capture a wedding in a unique way. Although weddings can be a challenge I thought that shooting a hybrid wedding would be more difficult than it was. I have to give a big thanks to my GH3 which handled all the files I could throw at it like a champ. Jumping between stills and video on the fly was as easy as going from the shutter release to the Rec button. I have great respect for anyone that can shoot weddings full time. They are a challenge when you a couple that is not wanting to work with the photographer but I lucked out with Katie and Justin. They were just awesome to work with and very relaxed in front of the camera. Everything was shot with the Lumix GH3, 12-25 f/2.8 and 35-100 f/2.8.

          • What is the smarter photographer "into?"


            from Will Crockett / Added

            Adding motion, even the teeniest bit, makes pictures look better on a screen. But as a still photographer, adding video means a pile of new tools and a ton of fiddling with files right? Nope. Blending photos, short video clips, audio, music and more into one "eProduct" to share or to sell is easier than you may thing - if you take the smarter path. The SMARTER Photographer is a new low-cost video series from the team at ShootSmarter on how you can move into hybrid imaging using any camera that shoots both photos and video. It's loaded with info on reducing post processing time on video and photos, using online galleries to show, share and sell your images the easy way, info on hybrid LED lighting, the upcoming migration to mirrorless cameras that make your life SO much simpler, and plenty more. View volume one of The SMARTER Photographer online with the latest video streaming technology that lets you view it now on your laptop, then later tonite on your iPad, and two weeks from now on your iPhone. Or. old schoolers can get it on DVD. It's less than $25 and guaranteed good. More info on this video and ooodles of info on hybrid imaging at www.discovermirrorless.com

            • Suzette Allen: Christmas Card eProduct


              from Will Crockett / Added

              The deeply talented team of Suzette Allen and her brainy (ok, and handsome too) hubby Jonny have once again raised the bar in the photo industry. The discovermirrorless.com vloggers are focused on making eProducts for pro photographers to sell, blending stills and video and graphics and audio for customers to show and share on their family "screens". Well, we think this eProduct from Suzette & Jonny is the best single eProduct we've ever seen. Who wouldn't want this to be the family Christmas card to send to friends phones and facebook pages? Why are Christmas cards printed? This tells the story better and shares well without stamps!

                  While walking through Fairchild Botanical Gardens in Coconut Grove I saw a magenta hat and thought I'd try out the GH3's One Point Color. After shooting a few stills I heard the sounds of kids running towards me. With out taking my eye off of the EVF I rolled video and what you see is what I captured. One Point Color is one of the many Creative Filter Effects built in the Lumix GH3.

                    The Quantum Omicron LED ringlight is one of the finest quality hybrid lights money can buy and works just as well as a mainlight in a softbox as it does mounted to your camera as a punchy main light. This video shows a few of hybrid photographer Will Crockett's favorite features of this LED light from the firmware update port, the chromatically correct light output, to the auto-dimming feature and more.
