Watch The OBGMs New Low-Fi Driven Music Video

As The OBGMs second collaboration with visual mastermind and videographer Ryan Enn Hughes—the first becoming a Vimeo Staff Pick in 2013—the Torpedo music video will make you see double, literally. The track is the second off the Toronto-based band’s debut self-titled album, and was made possible due to funding from MuchFACT, a Canadian talent assistance foundation. The video was shot with two Canon C100s and Ninja adapters,...

Photoflex Back in Business? Lighting Company Finalizing its Sale to Remain a Brand

The up and down of Photoflex reads like the action sequences in a script from a Liam Neeson movie, as not a few weeks ago they claimed they were finished, and yet today the lighting company is now stating that they are working through a process that will keep the brand alive.I called Photoflex today, not two days after speaking personally with two former employees who are still very much not employed by Photoflex and believed the...

Stu Gibson’s Drone Footage of Ocean Landscapes are Simply Jaw-Dropping

Stu Gibson spent the whole of 2014 traveling and surfing in some of the world’s best swells and scenic beaches. Armed with his backpack, surf board, camera and a drone, he collected stunning aerial footage of the places he visited. “I travel with my pet drone everywhere I go and I’m excited to start 2015 as a licensed drone operator, its going to be a freaky industry to work in,” he said on his...

Photographer of the Day: Lose Yourself in Nyoman Ady Sanjaya’s Black and White Landscapes

Today’s photographer of the day is 23-year-old Nyoman Ady Sanjaya, otherwise known as Ady Lee,and a Mataram, Indonesia native. He focuses on landscape, fine-art, black and white and manipulation. For him, it all started with a pocket camera when he was 15 years old. With “learn and keep on learning” as his motto, he says it’s difficult to explain his passion for the medium because it’s very much...

Artist Studio NYC Preserves Irving Penn’s Former Workspace

On the eleventh floor of a seemingly standard office building in Manhattan’s Union Square, sits a quaint photography studio that looks down on 5th Avenue. Natural light pours in through four large windows throughout a 24′ x 16′ foot production room. And as you walk towards the windows to view the street below, the rustic hardwood floors creak beneath your feet. Across the room, a door leads to a larger...

After Seeing the Canon C300 Mark II First Hand, I Might Be a Believer

From specs alone, it’s been incredibly easy for me and other editors and photography writers to be very skeptical of the Canon C300 Mark II. With limited frame rate options, a maximum of 4K recording resolution, and basically comparable specs across the board to either far cheaper options or woefully out-speced by slightly higher priced cameras, you can’t blame me. But after seeing it in person, using it and watching raw...

This Elysium-Like Spinal Body Suit is Photography’s Terrifying Future

I, for one, welcome our new robotic overlords.  What is this terrifying contraption? It’s called the Tilta Armor-Man, and it’s a body suit designed to make carrying a gimbal easier. The irony of the gimbal is that it was supposed to be a lighter-weight, more stable and mobile solution than the spring-loaded body suit stabilizers. I guess we can’t escape the spinal supports, even with devices like the MoVi...

Review: The Manfrotto Digital Director

When I first saw the press release regarding the Manfrotto Digital Director, I almost didn’t believe it. A company I associate with tripods, walking sticks, the Magic Arm and backpacks was making an app? It didn’t compute. After testing the Digital Director myself for quite some time, I’m prepared to say I’m not just pleasantly surprised. No… I’m wildly impressed. The Digital Director is clearly Manfrotto’s attempt to...

Photographer of the Day: Sieger Joostens Philosophically Explores ‘the Invisible’

Today’s photographer of the day is Sieger Joostens, a 22-year-old Belgian photographer. He studied photography at the School of Arts in Ghent (KASK), and went on to study philosophy in Leuven. However, he never completed these studies. After several years, he’s taken up the investigation of ‘the invisible’ in philosophy and spiritualism. For Joostens, it all began 10 years ago when he perceived the camera as a...
