About This Club

A place to share YouTube videos about photography and camera gear. Please join the club and post links to interesting videos about photography and gear.

  1. What's new in this club
  2. Mark Seliger interviews actor / photographer Matthew Modine and celebrity photographer Martin Schoeller. Some very interesting discussion in this one.
  3. Yup, the Adorama video I linked above was definitely the best one I have seen so far. Used by an actual photographer who has actual photos to show for it.

    Nikon Z Series Mirrorless Videos

    Good videos The videos with the nikon ambassadors - who had a couple of weeks to use the cameras - have less guessing about the functionality and other things like battery duration Here is the link to one that I found very informative, it is an Adorama video with a wildlife photographer lady from Canada and a video guy from California https://youtu.be/O-M4SmW527E
  5. Here's Mathieu from Mirrorlesson's video impressions of the new Nikons. The more I look at this camera the more I like the design. But I will not be in the market for one myself - quite happy with MFT and the advantages of the smaller form factor.
  6. Here's Jared Polin's hands on video and initial thoughts. Concerns for me if I was a Nikon legacy glass owner would be the AF speed on adapted lenses. If it's a major problem then you may not be happy, but if it's not so bad (like the way I use the Olympus legacy glass on my 5 year old E-M1 with adapters) then great. I'd definitely got one. I think the price point for the Z6 is pretty good. Same as the Olympus E-M1 Mk II was at launch.
  7. Here's another one from a guy who is actually using it to (shock! horror!) take photos. I don't have time to watch the whole thing just yet as I am about to start today's round of property shoots. Let me know what you think? The EVF on this new mirrorless sounds pretty amazing.
  8. I still haven't had enough time to properly investigate the new Z Series from Nikon (I have been shooting property flat out and planning the upcoming Thanksgiving Safari) so I am scouring the YouTube for videos about it. Yes, I am becoming very lazy. Here's the first one I found from Kai Wong (who you either love or hate, or both). I must say, I am slightly warming to the design. I will add more videos as I find them. Feel free to add your own to the thread too.

    Bob Gruen & Kevin Bacon

    I surely enjoyed the video. Thank you for sharing, Dallas!
  10. It's not a camera I will probably ever own, but it is good to see that Leica are still making new M bodies. I don't know if Kai is just very small but that camera looks huge. Much bigger than I remember my M3 being.
  11. These are fairly old interviews that I am posting, but they are really worth watching. I take away a lot from them. In this particular interview it's more about what Bob Gruen has done in music photography than Kevin Bacon's celebrity that is what has stuck with me. Bob's approach is very similar to mine in that I don't like to give a subject too much direction, preferring to let them put themselves into characters that are worth making images of. He talks about shooting photographing John Lennon and also Tina Turner's early shows, specifically the one image that he says sparked his career. This was a great interview, I hope you enjoy it too.
  12. You're welcome, Armando. There is a wealth of stuff on YouTube. Unfortunately you also have to wade through a sea of narcissistic self-indulgence to get to it. Fortunately Zack Arias isn't like Peter McKinnon 🙄 so hopefully he will post more useful stuff in the future.
  13. I love looking into other photographer's creative spaces. I think I might actually be more of a design / decorator than a photographer! I like to see how they have things laid out, what they do with their spaces and if I see some ideas that I like I incorporate them into my own creative space. In this video portrait photographer Sue Bryce takes us on a tour of her space in Los Angeles. What I really found interesting is her "reveal" approach to sharing the work she has made with her subjects. Quite clever and definitely something that portrait photographers should consider doing for their own clients. I have set the link to start at 20s so that you don't have to sit through the sponsor's intro.
  14. I haven't seen anything from Joe McNally in a long time (probably something to do with me not shooting Nikon anymore), so I thought I'd have a look in at some of his recent work. Here's a cool little video showing how he goes about lighting a male model in a garage using a variety of speed lights and some modifiers from Lastolite.

    The Many Uses Of White Seamless

    nice videos , thanks for sharing them
  16. This 2 part series by Zack Arias was one of the more fundamental bits of knowledge I learned when I first started truly understanding how studio lighting works and also how to use it to your advantage. If you are interested in studio lighting these are very good videos to watch. Here's part 1: And part 2:

    The Making Of Full Metal Jacket

    I have driven past the location site many times and still marvel that Kubrick achieved so much atmosphere in the old London Docklands area. Quite amazing.
  18. I saw it in the theatre with a friend when it came out in 1987. I must have been on pass from the army myself because my 2 year conscription began in August of that year. I remember being somewhat unimpressed with it at the time because all the other movies I had seen about the war in Viet Nam had more of a jungle feel to them, where this one was in a completely different setting, more urban. As you'll hear in the beginning of the documentary, it was actually shot in East London, UK and made to look like Viet Nam so I guess that kind of explains why I felt it was a little "off". However, I have since watched this movie countless times and it is, as many of those interviewed say, quite a remarkable piece of film. Kubrick had a unique eye for detail and visual story-telling, something we photographers should always be developing.
  19. Thomas Haden Church has played many roles on both television and in movies. The role I remember him most for was as the dim witted aero-mechanic Lowell on the sitcom Wings, which aired in the 90's (Hollywood seems to have forgotten how to make sitcoms since the 90's). In this interview we learn a bit more about his photography work as well as that of Ed Keating. It's another excellent interview from Mark Seliger.
  20. I'm not a massive fan of these "photography vloggers" but every now and then you do find some good information nestled in between the cinematic self-indulgencies. This guy did make some good points about setting up his composition for the first shot in this video. Sounds like an Aussie.
  21. I really enjoy this series of interviews of photographers by Mark Selinger. Norman Reedus will be known to television viewers as Daryl on The Walking Dead. He was also the partner of Helena Christensen who was one of the interviewees on the previous episode I posted. Al Wertheimer I didn't know of prior to watching this interview, but apparently he was one of the guys who documented Elvis' rise to fame. Some very interesting insights from both photographers on this episode.

    I Needed Color

    Hey Akira, I'm glad you enjoyed it. It was a good insight into his life. If you have Netflix he also appears in an episode of Comedians In Cars with Jerry Seinfeld where they end up in his studio and he talks more about his art. Like many comedic actors I think there is a lot of tragedy below the surface that they are masking and this appears to come through in his art. I'm always on the lookout for interesting videos to share from the YT, but this club is here so that we can all do the same. I hope to see more shares from other members.

    I Needed Color

    Hi, Dallas, just joined the club. I haven't known what had become of Jim Carrey since he became world famous (at least to me) through the movie "Mask". This video is a nice food for thought. Thanks for sharing!
  24. Two very talented ladies talk about their work in photography.
  25. Part of what I hope to achieve with Fotozones is a deeper understanding of what compels us to take photos in the first place, and to share with the discerning audience here some of the insights I discover. Today's insight comes from an interview with Magnum photographer Christopher Anderson, courtesy of the YT channel Vice. While not particularly revelatory, I did enjoy the interview and it was interesting to hear how he got involved with photography in the first place. Pease note that some of the images shown in the video contain nudity.
  26. Today's video came up on my YT suggestions. It's not about photography, but it shows us a very different side of the actor and comedian Jim Carrey. I had no idea he was a visual artist also, and boy, what an artist he is! My take away from this video is that as photographers we need to allow what we absorb around us, our influences, to be expressed in a way that is as telling of what we feel inside. We can do so much more than just push a button to take a photo.
