VIDEO Joe McNally Control of Light

Joe McNally and I met a few years ago in Venice Italy, we enjoyed five days shooting with off camera flash.

The image showing two contemporary dancers together at the end of my dance section
were taken then, not using flash opting for the stage lighting.

Joe is highly in demand as a shooter, equally as well known for his workshops that take him around the world.

When we met he was in the middle of writing his first book "The moment it clicks" that turned out to be a best seller, highly recommended, simple and easy to read with some of his most striking images.

Work the scene and towards your best shots.

VIDEO Jay Maisel photographer.

Jay Maisel is one of the photographers I like to refer to, dropping by and looking at his latest work from time to time.

There are a few videos out there that feature Jay, for me its how he approaches his work, his thoughts that i find inspiring.

He seems very structured in an unstructured way.
His influence is subtle, maybe I watch or look at him a handful of times in a year, each time I see something in his work and come away refocused, energised.

Too many photographers rush to get to output and along the way loose the reason they started out in this biz.

Keep focused, inspired, commercially savvy and be self driven.

VIDEO Le Désir

I like simplicity and movement, so this appeals to me, this video was made a couple of years ago. The track used is also familiar so maybe there is another reason for me to like.

Anyway got to dash.

You can't stop a train. Naysayers be damned, 

Kate Upton just keeps on coming for that number
one spot. From the Vogue Italia cover, to the 
Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue doubleheader
and every piece of work in between.

A new Kate has risen - all hail!

Viva La Gisele. She of the cascading hair, 

the shimmering skin, the impossible body and
the effervescent personality. Still rocking every 
magazine cover in sight, from GQ to V and Arena.

Still clocking the massive bucks that sends the 

wags wagging in amazement, Gisele truly looms 
as THE last supermodel of our era. She is a Brazilian
 national hero for a reason.

This Bahia Brazil beauty has been the

epitome of big bonanza contracts for 
the likes of Maybelline and Victoria's Secret. 

You can rest assured the scale of those 
contracts keep Adriana in the dream club 
of the industry's most wanted. Plus you 
always want to keep it in mind that her legendary
GQ cover was one of the biggest selling 
issues of that magazine ever! 

That's what you call power beauty!

Two of the current top three are IMG girls, Marilyn Agency

having a tight grip on the number one spot with the stunning Adriana Lima.

All of the content and links from Models.com a great place

VIDEO Louis Vuitton Spring Summer 2013

The escalator dimension really adds to this show.

Another clever show, the doubling of the models so tightly sequenced kept my attention throughout.

Canon 1DX First Impressions

The moment you get your hands on the 1DX it feels and looks imppressive, you will notice its weight straight away. I prefer it to be this way rather than light, the 1DX really sits rock steady in your hands.

Moving around the camera I was first drawn to the memory card opening, and the battery release.

The battery is about twice the size of the 5DmkII sliding in nicely from the left side. The memory cards are accessed from the back of the camera. The dual CF slots face backwards at you rather than at the side,  I prefer it this way too, keeps the camera facing forward ready to go again.

The menu layout is very similar to the 6D which I got my hands on last year, straight away it feels simple to use, it all makes sense.

Going through the menu options is something I encourage any camera user to do, get to know your gear inside out.

Checking through the menus one of the display features that can cause a lot of problems to my workshop attendees has been taken out on the 1DX, this was nice to see.

I like the toggle button being in two locations, great for when shooting portrait.

I liked the options for saving the files, being able to select dual saving i.e. to card A and card B, or to save to one card then to goto card B when card A is full, or save RAW to one and JPEG to the other, great feature for reviewing your JPEG files quickly after an event.

More to come on the 1DX soon.

Great use of space. Great show.
