The pandemic has truly hurt the creative industry. Who knew that a year ago that specializing in portrait photography would hurt my career so badly?

I am living and working in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, where the first wave of COVID-19 was pretty underwhelming in terms of impact to the population’s health. Maybe that’s why when the second wave hit so hard, the government assumed we’d make it through again with little harm. However, after reaching nearly 15% positivity rates, the provincial government has implemented an unbalanced code red lockdown. Anyone deemed non-essential (hard to argue photographers are essential) are not

Shooting Portraits with a Giant IMAX Lens on a Canon EOS R

In an endeavor that seems to be driven only by curiosity, Photographer Jay P. Morgan modded an old IMAX lens to allow it to work with his Canon EOS R. But just getting the lens to work wasn’t enough, as Morgan decided to take the lens way out of its element: street portraiture.

The giant lens was made by Iwerks Entertainment, a company founded in 1985. While it is now known as SimEx-Iwerks, the company still produces high-tech entertainment systems, films, film software, and other entertainment devices. After keeping the lens in storage in his basement for years, Morgan

Seattle-based artist Rudy Willingham has an ongoing series in which he cuts out parts of portrait photos and fills them in by holding them up in front of carefully chosen backgrounds.

Willingham gets the backgrounds to work just right in becoming everything from feathers on Big Bird to sunglasses to dresses.

He also uses the sun to highlight parts of his photos.

We previously featured a stop-motion clip Willingham created of LeBron James dunking.

Make a DIY Selective Focus Lens with a CV Boot

Iranian photographer and camera tinkerer Alireza Rostami wanted to shoot tilt-shift photos but found the specialized lenses too expensive, so instead he decided to make himself a selective focus lens using a cheap CV boot.

Rostami needed a lens that could project an image circle big enough to avoid vignetting while adjusting his selective focus, and he settled on the lens found on an old Kiev 60 medium format SLR camera made in the former USSR between 1984 and 1999.

To mount this medium format lens to his APS-C DSLR, Rostami created some simple semi-rigid bellows using a CV boot,

Lake Tahoe-based photographer Tajreen Hedayet made this short, sweet, and inspiring 2-minute video tutorial on six different editorial self-portraits you can try shooting at home if you’re looking for a way to exercise your creative muscles.

“The object of editorial photography is to tell a story or convey a feeling in a creative or artistic way,” Tajreen writes. “This is opposed to commercial photography which is more direct or basic, and usually meant to sell a product or show the subject off (i.e. headshots).

“The goal of this kind of photography is not necessarily to ‘feature’ the subject, but

The Seoul gallery Blackmarket recently created a blacklight print of a photo by Seoul-based cyberpunk photographer Noe Alonzo. This 3-minute behind-the-scenes video shows how the print is made using screenprinting.

For the lengthy printing process, Blackmarket uses ultraviolet powders and mixes them into a clear oil-based ink as a replacement for basic CMYK.

Using 250GSM matte-black softboard, the printer works from lightest to darkest layers in this ink order: white base, bright yellow, magenta, cyan, white highlights, and finally rich black.

200 mesh screens are used to capture fine details, so the liquids (which are mixed with a slow drying

Capturing Emotion Through Light

I saw a post from a fellow light painter that grabbed my attention and implanted itself into my brain — something that I haven’t been able to let go of. He asked: “We know by looking at painters’ brushstrokes how they were feeling at a certain time. In light painting, we “paint” with light. I would be curious to see if emotion could be shown in the brush strokes of light painting too.”

My response was that I don’t think you could necessarily capture individual strokes of light and know that much detail from the light itself, but from
