Links Friday – 06.03.08

Its a little silly that its taken 3 months! before I did this again. I am really sorry! I do really need to find a way to store my links so that I can just post them when I get them.

  • Squeeze The Lime released this little gem of a video about “Herlinde’s Fist Photo Shoot”. Bert Stephani shows what he would normally do when braking in a new model. I found though that the video sort of morphed into this less complicated guide to portrait photo shooting. Just simply showing the user position of lights, reflectors and what lenses to use then after that show the result is just simply inspiring! Thanks Bert! –>Click Here<–


LIME008 – Herlinde’s First Shoot from Lime Photography on Vimeo.

  • Check out Vimeo.com. Its a great site that shares flickrs concept of free service but can go pro. Of course its only for video. You get a 500MB a week uploading free which video from those small cameras is more than enough. The processing time is a little long (max I have seen is 1 hour) before your video is live but you can remove that waiting time by going pro. Now pro is not the cheapest thing either but you can upload HD video after that so it really depends on what your doing. Regardless if you join or not take a look at some of the videos. You wont be disappointed. –>Click Here<–
  • Last but not least I wanted to reference Victor W. again! If you have not added this guy as a contact you need too do it now… I am waiting… I said do it now!!! Ok joking aside you really need to keep an eye on this pro photographers stream as he is a real inspiration!  His recent master piece I can’t stop looking at either. Fantastic lighting, great subject and very very original!

    Hiya Laddie,

    ‘Pro photographers stream’? What are you like? I’m just an aspiring amateur the same as you guys! (Did make me blush, thanks for that.)
    Not too shabby for a test shot and was great receiving feedback on it all.

    Looked at Vimeo before as flickr doesn’t allow videos until you’re ‘pro’, may have to grab a closer look at that.

    Loved the ’squeeze the lime’ video, as you mention great ideas for portraiture. Enjoyed the rest of his site too, that guy knows what he’s doing and it’s all quite inspirning.

    Brilliant Friday links Laddie and thanks again for the ‘heads up’!

    Victor

    I stand by what I said man!

    The thing with the lime video is that I want a pocket wizard now. I heard though that in the scheme of things they are not horribly expensive. The flash however is!

    Enjoy the vimeo!

    Ah, pocket wizards. There are some good chinese copies available at more than reasonable prices. I’ve been that interested I’m doing a DIY route – cordless doorbells.
    Yep, they use the same low power PMR frquency as pocket wizards, you can sync. through the doorbell push and fire from the receiver, (doorbell), via it’s decoder chip and a solid state opto triac isolator. Not as pretty, but I’ve got a couple kicking around doing nothing so having a go. (Plus they’re encoded too!)
    Flashes are expensive, but I even found some schematics to have a go at building them too, and at a fraction of the price!
