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.

You can see the final shots and behind-the-scenes images with additional technical information here.
