I collaborated with Thomas Heaton, a fellow photography YouTuber based in the North East of the UK, on a “One Word Brief” to make a piece of content using photography.
“How do I improve my photography?” through comments, email and in person, I am asked this daily. Here’s a brief look into how I’ve been getting better at photography all these years…
Last week I did my first YouTube Live session, having previously teased in recent videos since purchasing my Blackmagic UltraStudio Mini Recorder, that I would be starting a series of live “shows”. The broadcast was a simple unboxing of a collection of microphone equipment that RØDE had sent me, followed by an impromptu Q+A session. Read on to see my thoughts of how it went!
Watch my cinematic travel montage video from Hong Kong, filmed entirely on the Sony A7R II as part of my Cine Scenes travelling film series.
Every now and then, I share a compilation of the recent tech purchases I’ve made that will assist in the work that I create. The last time I did this was from Tokyo, Japan; this time I’m in Melbourne, Australia and I’ve got a whopper of a collection for you, including the Atomos Ninja Assassin!
Working in collaboration with SmugMug—the online photography portfolio service—Dave Powell of Shoottokyo is shown on his daily jaunts as a street photographer around Tokyo, in excellent cinematic fashion!
Here’s a breakdown of how I made a short film about the beautiful reflections of thousands of illuminations and colourful umbrellas in the rain of Tokyo, Japan.
