I know this is a filmmaking site. But I KNOW there has to be some photographers on this website. My roots might be in Filming, but I have a serious love for Photography. So if you do any type of photo work, post your pictures here.

*Please note this! Please post your own work! If it is someone elses work, give THEM credit for the shot.*

Awesome shots, mate :) Glad you started this thread. What camera are you shooting with?

Here's a couple of mine shot with the Canon 7D

These were shot with the T3i. I really want to upgrade to the 5d iii.
And thanks man! :)

This was shot during the location scouting for the feature Immoral Existence. So beautiful in WV.

Oh goody, a photography thread. I dig photojournalism. I love to capture it raw -- and I feel like god if I captured emotions unscripted.

I live in the Philippines so here are my interesting subjects:

I found this blind guy playing near the cemetery (this was taken during All Souls' Day). FYI, Filipinos are big on celebrating All Souls' Day -- we would flock cemeteries to pay respect on the departed ones. It's like El Día de los Muertos in Mexico.

I took these photos in a public hospital in Mindanao. I was commissioned by World Health Organization - Western Pacific Region to document the vaccination of Hepa B to newborns. As you see this was the maternity ward-- and yes, 3 patients 1 bed.

I think photography can teach you a lot about filmmaking. I've learnt more about lighting, composition and such from just going out and taking photos than I have preparing a storyboard for a video!

This is an awesome thread. There is some really amazing work here!

I've read in a few places that photography is a great way to develop your skills for filmmaking. Many of the concepts and science of still photography is the same, but it does have the advantage of allowing you to work alone and really just focus on the camera, lenses and lighting.

Here is some of my work that I am most proud of. I shot these photos and created a set of 'save the date' keepsakes for a friend's wedding a few years ago using them. I have blurred out their names, if you're wondering...

953
952
954

Unfortunately, the camera I used for these shots and for some of my other work, was not mine. I had a very generous friend who let me use her camera whenever I wanted. After these and the wedding I shot, I got a lot of calls asking me to take paying photography jobs, but without my own camera I had to turn them down. So, once I get a good DSLR for filmmaking, I am going to use it for stills photography as well to make it pay for itself.

Again, absolutely amazing photos GradeBFilms and Havey! Breathtaking!

I was wondering if anyone had any advice on how to take clear pictures at a music concert - such as what ISO, white balance, etc.
Thanks

UltimateVisionFilms
05-18-2014, 11:08 AM
Is the concert going to be inside a stadium or outside, day or night. If there is daylight, then use the lowest ISO possible so you don't get noise in your pictures. The more you increase the ISO the more noise you get.

Littlemonkey
05-18-2014, 11:28 AM
Indoor stadium probably. I'm not really thinking of any particular concert I'm just gathering the knowledge for when I need it really. But yes it will probably be inside a big stadium.
I'm thinking photos such as this:

When you go to the concert, take a zoom lens incase if you are far away, you can zoom in to your subjects. As you can see in the picture, the guy has back light, key light and fill light which is good amount of lights for your photos to come out nice looking.

Try to get as close as you can. That lens is telephoto, but the more telephoto the lens, the higher the f-stop. The higher the f-stop, the less light is let into the camera. The less light let into the camera, the higher the shutter speed needs to be. The higher the shutter speed needs to be, the blurryer the images because it opens the shutter for longer. To compensate, you then need a higher iso which lets in more grain. So it really boils down to the f-stop.

The darkness is not always filled with darkness. There is some beauty that goes unnoticed. it may not always be traditional beauty, but beauty none the less. A true artist will find interesting subjects to illuminate to others eyes. For me, it was always near and full of light, but the darkness had to do with my perception. I think sometimes the perception of darkness is really what is not in ones sight or consciousness never the less it was always there. So in this case light is what one chooses to be cognitive of...

Deep Down

What is really deep down in a person? What is it about them that draws us close? Why spend valuable time trying to get close? Where does this urge originate from? Why be a slave of it?

We are created and programmed to seek it out. We have instincts that drives of beyond our consciousness. There is a program that runs in the background of our mind that gives direction. Light has always been something that we have sought after and tried to manipulate. Even when we are being passive - aggressive by trying to show we prefer the dark, we still admire what is in the light...

I really like this one because it gives me a cinematic view on a film scene that is going to zoom into the light down the street and transition to the next scene. I can see it it vividly when I look at this capture.


It also makes me think that the camera view will zoom down the street and stop in intervals to allow the audience to to get a feel of what is happening in the characters lives on the street or just the street activity in general. Zoom for one second then slow to either a slow motion or a time pulse to view an activity or character, then speed up to zoom again then slow again to slow to view the next character or activity... Just a thought that comes to me as I look at this.

I agree that this statement has some validity to it. I started here from noting and posted my first crappy short and fell in love with film making from that point on and I started learning from all of you here. My wife is a Photographer and being apart of her and having my Flickr account I have been learning to allow the images to impress me in certain ways and then I have become to be able to see things or a progression that the image may go into as a video composition. Anyway the photography side has had a good impression on how I see cinematic and has opened up my capacity to be able to see things that I once did not.

This image impresses upon me the song "Easy Like A Sunday Mourning". I can see a being introduced the front hood of a car as the view would be from the inside of the car showing the windshield and then the hood as a drop down slow pan while being in the car moving and watching the leaves blow by off the street as the car goes by. Hearing the something subtle and smooth on the radio of the car as the driver is enjoying the bliss of the beautiful day.
