Mark Fisher is a recent recipient of the PDN 30 Photographers to Watch award. His specialty is also pretty cool (pun totally intended)—Mark specializes in ski photography, and also captures the portraits of various athletes. But beyond this, Mark also shoots various lifestyle projects.
We recently reached out to Mark, and he chatted with us about the gear he uses, ski photography, and wanting to have a baby despite his busy career life.
This week in the news: Sony updates their entry level DSLR and mirrorless cameras, Fujifilm offers a wide angle conversion lens for their ultra popular X100 camera, and a new softbox for Speedliters (and Speedlighters).
Todd Owyoung has been photographing concerts and musicians for years. He runs the very successful I Shoot Shows blog, and is always on the road, and blogging about his experiences. Todd is extremely active on Twitter as well. At a very young age, he's accomplished much, having photographed many major musicians that others would only dream of.
Todd found some time to answer a couple of questions for us about his methods of shooting, and about concert photography in general.
Portraits can be super fun! Michael Thompson of LightenUpandShoot.com sometimes employs a very specific style of shooting. He combines street photography with portraits; he finds cool locations and interesting people, and sets up a mini-studio right there on the spot. He's done workshops on this at the B&H Event Space, but you should see if he's coming closer to your neck of the woods.
How do you think Mike shot the photo above? Read on to find out, and also be sure to check out the video showing Michael shooting the photos.
