Adjustable Umbrellas; the ultimate versatility

Umbrellas are a fabulous lighting tool for a variety of subjects and assignments. The wrapping quality of the light from umbrellas makes them ideal for portraits, fashion and beauty.  They are also a great choice for product and architectural photography. As lighting modifiers, umbrellas are also very versatile, allowing you to use them as a reflective surface, or shoot directly through them for a softer effect.  Today we are going to explore the options available with Photoflex’s Adjustable Umbrellas. Photoflex’s line of adjustable umbrellas is the only one on the market that allows you...

A Lifelong Artist: the Landscape and Wildlife Photography of George Wilson

Please tell us about your start. What got you interested in photography? My mother is an artist, a watercolorist, and at a very early age, she would take the whole family to art museums on Sunday afternoons. Drawing and self-expression through art was always encouraged. When I was eight years old, I received a small point and shoot camera (size 126 film). For me, it was a window into the world around me. A way to express what I was seeing and feeling. I can say that I pushed that camera to its limits. I discovered how close I could get...

George Wilson: Sunrise at the Coffee Flats Schoolhouse

Waking one September morning well before the sun, I headed out to the intersection of Highland and Rocky Ford at the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary with a thermos of coffee and a few breakfast bars. This year I would spend only two weeks in this prime South Dakota real estate. All of the roads are here are dirt, dotted with cattle guards, potholes, and a few washouts. I would actually drive on pavement for just one hour during my visit. Solitude lets me to photograph without disruption. The lack of a cell phone signal at the bottom of Cheyenne...

From surfer to digital artist: The photo-composite work of Gary Irving

Please tell us about your start. what got you interested in Photography? In the mid 80’s I started using a film camera while living in a small town in Wales, where I grew up and studied art in college. I would take pictures of my friends surfing and skating. Nothing serious, really—that's probably why they kicked me out! What led you to digital compositing as a main medium? I started using digital compositing to make my images because I had photographed a lot of landscapes and portraits and always felt that there was something more...

George Wilson: The Black and White Landscape - Palmetto Prairie

Black and White photography is my roots. It is where I first cut my photographic teeth with plus-x and tri-x films. Later on it was the extremely fine grain TMax film. Black and white is also my first darkroom experience. I remember exposing the paper and then gently coaxing each image out by agitating the developing tray slightly. I can only compare it to watching something approach on a foggy day. There is a point at which all is suddenly sharp and clear. Digital imaging still allows me to use black and white. Selecting monochrome and using colored contrast filters...

From roadie to band photographer, the music photography of Scott Uchida

Please tell us about your start. What got you interested in photography? I actually got my first camera from my grandfather when I was 10 years old. My grandfather was a post WWII photographer in the Japanese community who photographed mainly portraits in traditional Japanese clothing. I used to go to my grandparents' home on the weekends and I would go out with him on his shoots. In the end, I really enjoyed watching him work and learning from him. What led you to photographing professional musicians? After high school, I was asked to be a guitar tech (roadie) for a...

Gary Irving: Edgy Composites with Precise Lighting

  Photographer Gary Irving loves to create outlandish, impossible scenes that set the stage for fantastical interpretations of imagined realities. His artistic career has been feathered with all sorts of influences. He’s painted custom designs on motorcycles and cars, made a movie, photographed motocross, and started shooting panoramic landscapes. Then he came across the photography of Joel Grimes and that changed everything. “I took a lighting class with Joel and learned how he did his work,” Irving explains. “I changed my whole process. With landscapes, I realized that anybody could just go and shoot that...
