This an interesting TED talk from Sebastiâo Salgado, a brilliant photographer from Brazil. He didn’t start out in photography, had a number of high flying careers before he found the camera. Worth a watch.
Andy Biggs is an african wildlife photographer, and here he talks about his journey as a photographer, how he first got into photography and deconstructs some of his excellent shots. Again Andy isn’t somebody who started off in photography, he says in the video being a photographer was his fourth career. It’s never too late to switch 🙂
Ok, so this strictly isn’t a photography video, it’s another one from the International Space Station, but look at all that expensive camera gear stuck to the wall at the beginning of the video!
Nevertheless this is a riveting watch to gain a better understanding of life on the ISS. It is ever so slightly cluttered though, maybe they need a cleaner 🙂
Here’s my latest video review of the original Canon 5D (mark 1). I’ve had it for the past few months so have been able to take it through it’s paces. It’s a very good camera, easy to use, and more portable than the Canon 1DS (Mark 1) which I reviewed previously.
Astronaut Chris Hadfield takes us through what it’s like to take photos from space. A great video to watch and some stunning photos to boot. Looks like his camera of choice is a Nikon. Perhaps that’s a Nikon D3X?
