Induro would like to invite you to a live webinar!
Photography is magical. You can use your camera to capture a fleeting moment and a passage of time in a single photograph.
In this free webinar sponsored by us, join host Joe Brady as he demonstrates his approach to capturing the passage of time in both pastoral and urban settings. To capture a unique perspective that creates extra interest, Joe will introduce the Induro Hi-Hat system. A tripod support with a small footprint and big versatility, this incredible system makes it easy to have a stable and low-to-the-ground system that makes capturing a unique perspective both safe and easy.
To calculate the perfect exposure for such long exposures – accomplished with the use of neutral density filters, Joe will also show how he uses the Sekonic L-758DR light meter for easy and precise exposure calculations. In addition, for hiking photographers, you’ll see the lightweight and versatile Benro Travel Angel II system in action.
The images created are fun and exciting, so join us for this informative and inspiring session.
Growing up during the Lebanese Civil War, Ali Elhajj lived an eventful life before coming to the United States. Since arriving here, he’s lived in states as far flung as Michigan, Hawaii, and Florida, where he’s remained since 2000. Fluent in both English and Arabic, Elhajj has done everything from photography to running a nonprofit organization to grad student marine mammal research to software programming. These diverse endeavors have helped shape who he is, what he photographs, and how he shoots his images.
While living in Hawaii as a college student, his mother gave him a Canon Digital Rebel. “I could see I had an eye, but I could tell I was far away from being a good photographer,” he recalls. This was the beginning of his career as a photographer. Being a writer of software, he’s very technical, but photography gives him “the opportunity to be both technical and artistic at the same time,” he feels.
LIVE VIDEO SEMINAR:
Join host Joe Brady for this live video webinar on tools and techniques to create panoramic landscape images. Learn how to capture the best images possible in preparation for stitching together in Photoshop with the least amount of editing possible.
Joe will cover the basic technical issues of lens selection, color and exposure and help to simplify the more complex issues of nodal points and hyperfocal distance so that you can create stunning panoramic images with consistent focus and tone while keeping all of the foreground and background elements lined up.
If you want to improve your results with this type of photography that can be both fun and full of impact, join us for this free live video session.
Andrew Michael Smith is a military photographer stationed in Germany. Although the U.S. Army has him shooting what you’d probably expect, he also has some breathtaking landscapes on his Flickr photostream.
Smith recently posted some great shots of himself in action with his Induro CT214 tripod. He seems to really be enjoying the short center column. A few photos have him with his camera mere inches off the ground. From wind, ice and snow to cozy studio shoots, it looks like this soldier really puts the CT214 through its paces.
Don’t miss the series of Afghanistan photos by this modern day Joe Rosenthal. Keep up the great shots, Andrew—and, of course, thank you for your service!
Photographer Rick Sammon has made a video demonstrating the new Induro BHL Series Pan Heads. Watch Sammon show off a BHL3 with the universal mount, Arca-Swiss Quick Release system, and double safety lock. He also goes over the leveling capabilities, multiple knobs, the drag control, and the inherent advantages of a ballhead in the studio and on location.
The team took along two tripods with Induro GH Series Gimbal Heads, along with a range of bodies and heavy glass from both Nikon and Canon. They encountered a sandpiper, egrets, swans and Canadian geese, but it appears the Great Snowy Owl was a no-show.
Check out the details in the full post at LensProToGoBlog.com. It looks like a cold, but educational adventure.
Eric Brazier has created an interesting video of driving around Montreal. He’s also, possibly even more impressive, put together a mounting for his Canon EOS 5D Mark II inside his car. Building a “MacGyvered/ghetto rig,” in his words, Brazier mounted his Induro tripod on the passenger side of his car. Check out his full post for the video, the story, and behind-the-scenes photos.
Scott Bourne and Richard Harrington posted the first part of a video on the 3Exposure site featuring panoramic shooting at the Las Vegas Speedway. This video features Bourne shooting horizontal panoramic images. The second part promises to feature Harrington shooting vertical panoramic images in HDR.
Check out Bourne shooting with an Induro CT214 carbon fiber tripod. Bourne calls this model, “one of my favorite lightweight, affordable, carbon fiber tripods.” He demonstrates the bubble level, and stresses the importance of keeping your shots level for stitching in the postproduction process.
