Happy Friday Creactives!
To start off, our good friends Down Under sent us this fun image shot using both a GorillaPod and a GorillaTorch. A GorillaPod supported the camera and a GorillaTorch Flare was used write the text. I say that is doubly awesome!
Here is a little bit from the photographer Paul Gibbs: “It was taken on Nikon D700 full frame camera sitting on a Gorillapod, camera set to low ISO to extend time needed to write logo. It was a 30 second exposure at f8 on a tamron 28-75 f2.8 lens.The writer made sure he did not stand too long in one place to remain invisible (nearly), wrote each letter backwards then covered Flare with hand and then did the next letter. It took just two attempts once we worked out exposure! It was totally dark exempt for moon light, hence the detail in landscape.”
The versatility of the GorillaMobile Yogi for iPad 2 has charmed a reviewer on Lunch.com. Thomas Duff gave the Yogi a 5+ rating and said, “this stand is WAY cool. As far as I’m concerned, this is now part of my iPad. It won’t be coming off anytime soon”. Now that is exactly what we were aiming for.
For those of our readers who live in London or who have the luck to travel there this July, check out the London Street Photography Festival. The festival features a panorama of street photography: old and new, analog and digital, professional work and student work. If you (like I) can’t make it to London, there is plenty to see just poking around on their website. I particularly enjoyed these images.
Somewhat in the vein of taking photos on the fly, Photojojo has announced a new mount for iPhone 4 that allows you to use any of your Canon or Nikon DSLR lenses with your iPhone.
While my iPhone has quickly become my favorite (and most readily available) camera, I’m not sold on the practicality of the device. What do you think, Creactives? Would you splurge on a mount for your iPhone and lug around all your lenses or just stick with your DSLR?
Enjoy your weekend!
