The Eddie Adams Workshop would like to announce the 26th Workshop, which will be held October 11-14, 2013 in New York. The workshop is an intense four-day gathering of the top professionals in photojournalism, along with 100 carefully selected students.
The workshop’s purpose is to create a forum in which an exchange of ideas, techniques, and philosophies can be shared between both established members and newcomers of the profession.
The only tuition-free workshop of its kind, 100 students are accepted based on the merit of their portfolios from a pool of college students, professionals with three years or less experience, and U.S. military photographers.

The moon is a gorgeous subject, but it can be tough to get the shot you want. Have you ever taken a photograph of the moon at night only to discover that it is so bright in your photograph that it appears as a bright, white spot? Do you want to capture a landscape photograph with objects in the foreground and the moon in the sky as well? The trick is to capture the scene at twilight. When the light is low, you can capture the moon and the foreground with a single exposure – without blowing out the moon or leaving the foreground pitch dark. Continue reading →
Ok, they’re not in a tree. But they are on the in a van, in the snow, on tabletops, and maybe even thinking about hanging upside down.
The filmmakers over at NextWaveDV review the Induro Hi-Hat in the video above, saying that once you get used to having one on set, you’ll find it hard to go back to working any other way. They wrap up by saying:
“We definitely give the Induro a big thumbs up. If you’re in the market for a Hi-Hat or don’t even know you really need one, definitely check out the Induro. The solution is great and the price is so affordable that you could easily pick up one or more of them.”

Valerie Millett is a landscape photographer based out of Arizona who often goes to, what some would consider, extreme lengths to get the photographs that best represent her experiences in nature. Hiking and camping in remote areas with only her dog for companionship, Valerie’s dedication to her art shines through her images.
What’s in her bag? Glad you asked. (Hover over the image to see each item identified.)
Gavin Seim, whose cross-country photography road trip we’ve just written about, is making a film – actually, his second, and he needs your help to finish it. Entitled Photographics, Gavin aims to create a film that will delve, not into f-stops and shutter speeds, but into the very essence of what makes a great photograph.
Gavin Seim describes himself as an American Pictorialist who’s “passionate about making wall art, writing stories and sharing what [he] learns.” For three to five months out of every year, Gavin takes off in a camper with his family to “attempt to make images and film that do justice to the beauty of America.”
“I carry an AT213 with a PHQ1 head almost everywhere – Nearly all my serious wall images are made using a tripod. I’ve found stability to be one of the Six Keys of Image Quality and it’s ignored at the cost of fine details.
Induro offered me a solid value with great leg locks and good support even for my larger film cameras, all while maintaining portability. My Induro is the best tripod I’ve owned since starting in photography at age twelve.”
Victor Ha of the HDSLR Video Shooter site has posted a list of workshops to be held around the U.S. from May through November. It’s aimed at still photographers looking to transition into shooting HDSLR video.
Each workshop is a two-day event promises to cover everything a photographer will need to make the leap into motion, no pun intended. You’ll get hands-on experience with many of today’s top video production tools. One of these tools will be Induro’s revolutionary Hi-Hat. A relatively simple item in appearance, the Hi-Hat is a go-to item for many filmmakers because of its versatility and durability. A tool used for low-angle shots, table-top work, and even as a camera slider support, you’ll see firsthand how having a simple tool can make a world of difference in creating compelling content.
Normally, we focus on the best work of pros, which usually consists of tack-sharp images captured with the aid of Induro tripods and heads. Today, we will deviate to celebrate a form of photography that paved the way to modern professional photography.
April 28, 2013 is the next Worldwide Pinhole Day and we’d like to remind you having a good set of legs is a great idea for looooong exposures. Sure, it’s easy to rest your infinite-focus pinhole camera on the ground because it’s stable, but it’s not always the most interesting point of view, and it sure isn’t as flexible as a PHQ head (wink). Great composition can really take your lo-fi pinhole images from cool to awesome.
A look inside freelance photojournalist C.S. Muncy’s bag would reveal not only the expected cameras and lenses, but also a police scanner and protein bars. When a piece of gear makes its way into his kit, you know it’s there to work hard.
We recently sent him our CM25 Monopod to see how it would fare in a life constantly on the go. Muncy concludes:
“If you do a lot of work involving low-light photography (like news, sports or concert shooting) a monopod can mean the difference between a blurry image and a tack sharp shot you’ll feel comfortable sending to your editors.”
