Photographer Victoria Will is a commerical and editorial portrait photographer and her work appears in newspapers and magazines worldwide, from New York Times to Vogue. She has also been shooting celebrities at Sundance Filmfestival for several years now. But this this year she decided to do it differently.

Rather than bringing her new digital camera, she bought a really, really old one. Rather than creating digital files and prints, she used a century-old technique called tintypes, also know as melainotype or ferrotype.

The result: celebrity portraiture like you have never seen it before.

We recently had the privilege of meeting one of the true masters of portrait photography – Mark Seliger. This resulted in five new videos, in which Seliger shares his thoughts on lighting and portrait photography.

In the fifth video, Mark Seliger talks about how he created a story about Diana Ross, featuring American actress Kerry Washington.

“What was nice about this particular image was, during the afternoon, the light came through the sheers that existed in the house and they created this real glow.”, Mark describes in the video.

You will find all the videos at our dedicated Mark Seliger page.

“A recognition of that person is 50% to the equation so knowing who that person is and then having some kind of mass appeal becomes as important as actually the photograph”, says Seliger.

How Joe McNally Turned An Empty Room Into a Scary Halloween Fairy Tale

Sometimes, you just have to let your imagination run free. That’s exactly what photographer Joe McNally did for this Halloween-inspired shoot. Borned and raised on comic books and vivid imaginations of Mordor, Joe’s imagination ran all the way back to his darkest childhood fantasies.

In a recently published story on his blog, Joe McNally reveals how he turned an empty room into a scary Halloween fairy tale. With great help from a brilliant body painter, a talented hair stylist, producers and assistants, Joe turned his vision into reality.

Lighting-wise, Joe brought a bit of everything. He had three AcuteB2 battery generators, one powerful B4 battery generator and two B1 Off-Camera Flashes. He also added five SB 910 speed lights to the mix.

“Each light had a job to do, in a specific area of the photo,” Joe writes. “Then they all had to mesh into something plausible.”.

It all started with a shimmer and an idea and ended up as really amazing images.

Head over the his blog for the full story. This is too good to miss.
