Shutter Release is a regular feature here on Imaging Resource. We see a lot of great content around the web but cannot write dedicated articles to cover them all. Instead, we deliver quick-hit summaries of interesting content to share with you in one roundup article. Don’t worry, we still write full-length articles covering the most interesting content, but Shutter Release allows us to share more news with you than ever before.
Today’s Shutter Release discusses a two light portrait setup, an ongoing Leica promotion, showcases a gorgeous magazine cover shot in Australia shot on an iPhone and a sneak peek at Nikon 100th Anniversary product pricing thanks to Japanese product listings.
Using a Canon 5D Mark IV with a Canon 24-70mm f/2.8 II lens, photographer Daniel Ceapă captured beautiful portraits at sunset. He didn’t rely on natural light to illuminate his subject, however, instead he used a couple of Godox AD600BM lights. You can see the final shots and behind-the-scenes images with additional technical information here.
For a limited time, photographers can take home a Leica SL (Typ 601) camera with a Leica Vario-Elmarit-SL 24-90 f/2.8-4 ASPH lens for a full 24 hours. The program is available only at participating dealers. You can see the list of retailers here.
Following the lead of other publications in recent months, Elle Australia has a new cover which was shot with an iPhone. The photographer, Georges Antoni, used an iPhone 7 Plus to capture a lovely portrait. Check it out below.
