01 | SAMANTHA KENNEDY TAKES HER PLATYBALL TO LETCHWORTH STATE PARK

We love these recent images from photographer Samantha Kennedy. She recently took a trip to Letchworth State Park and brought along her Platypod Max and her preproduction Platyball Ergo. All of the final images were taken with her Nikon Z7 and 16-35mm lens. Check out the behind-the-scenes shots, as well as the final images. Get ready to be inspired!

02 | SHOOTING FOOD SHRIMP ON THE DECK WITH BOB COATES

“When you shoot with multiple crops in mind, you can make a single image give you more bang for the buck. Working with the graphic designer can be a help in designing the shoot. The original image was shot a little bit looser for multiple uses. Many times when working with a commercial food shoot you need to leave negative space for logos, text and marketing purposes. I, like many photographers, have a tendency to fill the frame with the subject for a more dynamic image. You need to talk with your client about the ultimate use of an image. In this case, we mapped out multiple crops because this capture is a hero. I suggest working to a "comp" when doing any advertising food shoot so your client gets the most from your work.”

03 | MACRO PHOTOGRAPHY MAGIC WITH DON KOMARECHKA

“Water droplet refraction photography is all about careful lighting and careful alignment. Every element of the photograph is like a puzzle piece that needs to fit perfectly in exactly the right place for the image to be made whole. Gooseneck arms can hold anything - Lumecube lights for illumination and clamps to hold the photographic "ingredients" in place. The flower in the background needs to be in alignment with the droplets and the foreground petals, which can be easily done with subtle and accurate shifts. This macro contraption is flexible and customizable, and any camera with macro capabilities can get a similar shot.”
