Attach a Digital SLR to a View Camera

So, imagine for a moment that Canon really does come out with a full frame  square sensor. Imagine it’s around 40mp. Now imagine putting that camera body digital back on a view camera and being able to use Rodenstock digital lenses (some of the sharpest and clearest lenses I’ve ever used). That would be sweet....

    Architecture – Design & Spirit

    Earlier this year, I was invited by Newspace Center for Photography to teach an architectural photography workshop. I was very honored and humbled that they thought of me. I’ve done a few other classes/workshops, but this was a full day class and much more involved than what I’ve done before. The class consisted of a...

      Pricing Photography for Image Libraries

      “…in a world where photographers traditionally price their product based on usage, what is “unlimited” use worth? There have always been photographers who intentionally or unknowingly ignore the subject of licensing, or otherwise simply give away unlimited use of their pictures without charging a premium for it. Those tend to be young photographers who don’t...

          Mmmm… doughnut

          Funny story about this doughnut: I was on assignment for American Airlines in flight magazine, American Way, and part of the assignment was to shoot Voodoo Doughnuts. I was trying to shoot an interior of the downtown location, but it happened to be during Spring Break. The place was totally mobbed and had to wait...

          Make a Model Release on an iPhone

          Hands down, the iPhone is the best damn tool a photographer can have. Here’s one more reason why: iRelease helps transform your old paper model release forms into information you can use. This powerful cloud based mobile application, in combination with its sophisticated ‘Live Syncing’ online account, organizes your forms into an easy to use...

            Hmm. This is making a powerful case for my pending iphone purchase. I’ve been trying to resist for so long that even Ara is telling me I need one.ReplyCancel

            I just tried out the Lite Version and works like a charm. Definitely going to buy the Pro Version so I can brand the release output and keep track of them online.ReplyCancel

            seems like a perfect app for my iPad.ReplyCancel

            Hi Lincoln, really enjoyed the site especially your lifestyle work, thanks for the review on iRelease it’s been great to see the industry adopting it. As a pro shooter myself it’s been a huge time saver to both our workflow & our clients admin. We’ve got big plans for the future starting with a new site and a complete overhaul of the backend for irelease.com

            Cheers ARReplyCancel

              Thanks kind words. IRelease is pretty sweet and definitely saves me time and organizational headaches. Looking forward to the continued support. It’s a great product. ReplyCancel

            Just wanted to point you guys to a different product, Easy Release.

            It is available for iPhone, iPad and Android, and has — we feel — more features and a much better workflow than iRelease.

            And, our iPad version takes advantage of the the screen real-estate better than iRelease, which only works in iPhone-compatability mode.

            http://itunes.apple.com/app/easy-release/id360835268

            Please check us out.ReplyCancel

              Thanks for letting us know. Can you describe what features you feel are better?ReplyCancel

              • Morgan Belford08/24/2010 - 10:51 am

                Sure, here are some things that we feel Easy Release does better

                Custom Releases
                We think it is better to be able to create and edit your custom releases, and your branding (e.g., logo) right on the device, rather than having to do so on the web, and then syncing with your device. Of course, for those who want to edit release text on their laptop (which is nice), you can still email the custom text to your device and paste it in.

                Platforms
                We have iPhone and Android versions. And our iPad version is “native” and so takes better advantage of the screen real estate than iPhone apps that are just run in 2x mode on the iPad.

                Internationalization
                Our UI is localized in 6 languages, and our default model and property release text in 13 languages.

                Data
                We (optionally) collect much more info about the model, like gender and ethnicity

                Witness
                We support collecting witness info and signature.

                ID Photo
                Our ID Photo can come from camera or library, not just camera.

                PDFs
                We think that the PDF format we use is more attractive.

                Management and Workflow
                You can create a new release in Easy Release in one go, or you can fill in some now, and the rest later. With iRelease you don’t have that choice.

                You can sort your releases by status, (model) name, shoot or date, not just name.

                You can attach a JPEG of the PDF to your email, along with the PDF, which is handy for some workflows.

                We support A4 size.

                And much, much more…ReplyCancel

          I Shot That: Video Edition

          Took my first crack at shooting video this past week. I’ve been toying around with the 5D Mark II’s video mode since I got the camera last year. It was neat, but I really didn’t have much interest in it
