Put 6 Photographers in a Room for 6 Hours and this is What Happens

Put 6 Photographers in a Room for 6 Hours and this is What Happens

  What does creativity mean to you? That is a HUGE question for photographers. Dylan Goldby reached out to a number of photographers in South Korea to put together a presentation on that topic. I spent a weekend in Seoul seeking out exactly what creativity means to me. It started with a conference and then ended with a trip inside my own motivations. I walked around Olympic Park and then unexpectedly stumbled into an exhibition of...

Timelapse Cinemagraph Tutorial

Timelapse Cinemagraph Tutorial

Intro One of the ways that you can make your cinemagraphs pop is by adding light trails to your cityscape cinemagraphs. However, the process isn’t exactly the same as making a basic cinemagraph. You have to use a bit of timelapse photography to get the look just right. When I started to get into cinemagraphs I immediately wanted to combine my love for cityscapes with the movement that I found in a cinemagraph. However, my first...

Flixel Cinemagraph Pro Tutorial

Flixel Cinemagraph Pro Tutorial

Intro For this tutorial, I am going to take you through the steps to make a very basic cinemagraph using Flixel’s Cinemagraph Pro for Mac. I am using the mac version because when you combine it with the power of a DSLR, it achieve a high quality cinemagraph. Of course, you can use their mobile apps but I find that this way produces a better result. Choosing a subject Cinemagraphs are all about movement and creating an illusion. You...

What Happened to Nampodong?

What Happened to Nampodong?

When I first arrived I was in the company of some extremely talented photographers. They gave me a start into a world that would drain my wallet and fill my heart with joy, almost simultaneously. One of the best areas in Busan that a photographer could go to drain his wallet and walk away with some nice gear was Nampodong. It’s streets were lined with camera shops and underground was full of retro gear. It was a place where...

Beomosa Temple Stay

Beomosa Temple Stay

When I got asked to shoot Beomosa Temple for an upcoming article in Seoul Magazine, I was really excited. Mostly because I love Beomosa and the other reason was that I really wanted to see what goes on at a temple stay which was the focus of the article. Temple stay programs are a unique way to experience temple life. However, most of the people that I asked about these programs either hated them or did them as a one off thing. I think...

Put 7 Photographers on a Tiny Island in South Korea and This is the Result

Put 7 Photographers on a Tiny Island in South Korea and This is the Result

Nothing is better than an island getaway with friends, especially when those friends are all excellent photographers. Last week I headed out with some of the best photographers in the area to the tiny island of Somaemuldo. This island is located near Tongyeong but really is isolated from everything. People come to fish (I think??) and just to get away from it all. There is really nothing much on the island but what is there is quaint and...

Worldwide Photowalk Wrapup

Worldwide Photowalk Wrapup

Just a quick update on the photowalk a few weeks ago. As you know, we had many talented photographers with us and I was very happy with the turnout.  However, for the local contest, it was Macbeth Omega that one our contest! Not only that, but he was one of the TOP TEN FINALISTS!! I knew when I saw the image that it was a winner. In fact I stopped myself numerous times from hitting the “choose as the winner” button just in case...

5DayDeal Photography Bundle Awesomeness!

5DayDeal Photography Bundle Awesomeness!

Few photography packages are anywhere near as good the the 5DayDeal’s Photography Bundle II. If you remember back in January they had a deal and it raised over $45,000 dollars for charity! Now they have set out to raise $100,000! While they are well on their way, I am sure that they could use a bit of help and I am sure that you could use some awesome stuff. Not to mention be entered to win $3000 worth of premium stuff like a...

2014 Scott Kelby Worldwide Photowalk

2014 Scott Kelby Worldwide Photowalk

This past Saturday I had the pleasure of once again hosting the Scott Kelby Worldwide Photowalk. I decided to change the location to Gyeongju this year as I thought that it would appeal to more people than having it in Ulsan. My assumption was correct and we had over 20 people show up. It was a great turn out for a great day of shooting. Our first location was the tomb park of Daereungwon. I had previously lead a photowalk here before and...

Great Sunrise Ruined

Great Sunrise Ruined

  I am a nice guy through and through. I love talking to people and especially other photographers but once in a while something or someone will rub me the wrong way and it just makes my blood boil. Being photographers we tend to end up at the same locations as other photographers. This is usually a good thing. However, on this morning it was not. Perhaps it would have been different if it was not 5 am but who knows? What Happened I...
