Spanish photographer Roberto Garver got commissioned to shoot some images for Real Madrid C.F. and Brazilian national team player Marcelo Vieira’s social media accounts. He took the opportunity to test some technical and conceptual ideas with different Profoto generators. This is his words about the experimental shoot.

The shoot I did with Marcelo was somewhat improvised. As you might imagine, the agenda of a famous footballer is pretty tight, and we had to plan the shooting with less than a day in advance. I was requested to take some pictures form Marcelo’s social media accounts. Knowing that he is a generous and easy-going person, I thought I ask him if we could play around a bit and execute some technical and creative ideas I had wanting to try out. I wanted his cheerful nature tom really come out with these images. And it did.

Sports photographers run in to all sorts of problems during a shoot. Witty athletes are probably not the most severe of them. Jed Jacobsohn tells a story of how he got pranked by American football player Marshawn Lynch.

Taking editorial portraits of top performing athletes is like shooting a-listed film stars or royalty. They are busy people and they don’t have much time to spare for photography shoots. There’s often a tight schedule where you need to fit in, especially since the writer usually steals most of the time from the subject.

Rising Light is a monthly article series highlighting promising photography students from all over the world. In this first article we meet Casey Jade who is a Photography Major at the College of Southern Nevada. Casey used Pro-B4 Battery Generators to freeze splashes of milk. Here is how she did it.

Casey Jade chose the College of Southern Nevada because, unlike most other colleges that focus on the fine art aspects of photography, it actually offers a real-deal commercial photography program.

Considering the fact most artsy types her age make little of the business end of making art – Casey ‘gets it’. She especially appreciates the fact her teachers actually earn their livings as photographers, they don’t just teach it.

“This school is amazing. Honestly, I wouldn’t trade the experience for the world”.

Alexia Sinclair Goes Into the Dark Woods and Lights up the Creatures of the Night

In the second part of Into The Gloaming, Alexia Sinclair leaves the comfort of her studio in search of a one hundred year old weeping beech tree. With her is a porcelain skinned heroine, a dress made of moths and a bag full of toadstools. The dedication and attention to detail is beyond belief. Here is the full story in Alexia’s own words.

As much as I love set construction and working in the studio (it never rains), some things just can’t be recreated on set, namely a gorgeous one hundred year old weeping beech tree.

With only a week until the tree would lose all it’s leaves (winter is coming, at least in Australia) we had to act fast to manifest this gateway between the real and the surreal.
Shooting on location is all about planning for that 5 minute window where the ambient intersects with the artificial and creates something otherworldly. With that in mind the only question that matters is: When exactly will the Sun be in that 5 minute window? And then how do I make sure that everything is ready for that moment.

Sometimes, you just have to let your imagination run free. That’s exactly what photographer Joe McNally did for this Halloween-inspired shoot. Borned and raised on comic books and vivid imaginations of Mordor, Joe’s imagination ran all the way back to his darkest childhood fantasies.

In a recently published story on his blog, Joe McNally reveals how he turned an empty room into a scary Halloween fairy tale. With great help from a brilliant body painter, a talented hair stylist, producers and assistants, Joe turned his vision into reality.

Lighting-wise, Joe brought a bit of everything. He had three AcuteB2 battery generators, one powerful B4 battery generator and two B1 Off-Camera Flashes. He also added five SB 910 speed lights to the mix.

“Each light had a job to do, in a specific area of the photo,” Joe writes. “Then they all had to mesh into something plausible.”.

It all started with a shimmer and an idea and ended up as really amazing images.

Head over the his blog for the full story. This is too good to miss.
