We here at Imaging Resource hope your weekend is going well. While we are dedicated to bringing you original content, we also want to make sure you see a variety of great photography content from around the web. In today's Shutter Release roundup, we will look at a video outlining five mistakes beginning landscape photographers make, go behind the scenes on a neat conceptual image, see what happens when a Nikon KeyMission 360 meets a tiger and we learn about another defamation lawsuit involving a photographer.
Landscape photography is tricky and it's easy to make mistakes. Fortunately, it's also easy to correct most of those mistakes. Toma Bonciu has made a new video outlining five mistakes that beginner landscape photographers most often make.
Conceptual and commercial photographer Adrian Sommeling is a very talented digital artist. In the video below, Sommeling shows how he captured images of him, his son, an Aston Martin and an Icelandic landscape before creating a very believable composite. It's really neat to see how it all comes together.
Looking to capture 360° footage of Sumatran tigers, Russell Edwards placed his Nikon KeyMission 360 on the top of the fenced enclosure. People say curiosity killed the cat. Well, in this case, the camera was really the one in danger. Amazingly enough, everything but the Gorillapod managed to come out fully operational. Most importantly, the tiger was not harmed by its unusual meal.
Earlier this month, we learned about a wedding photographer being awarded over $1 million in a defamation lawsuit against a couple who ruined her photography business. Now another photographer is suing for defamation, albeit with a much lower target reward of under $100,000. The plaintiff in the new suit is Oregon wedding photographer Ashley Lacy and she claims that a director in her local parks district sent out an email that attacked Lacy and led to her losing business and having to leave the area to start over. The timing of this lawsuit coming less than two weeks after Dallas photographer Andrea Polito being awarded over $1 million is, according to Lacy's lawyer, "wholly coincidental."
