From PhotoFest Japan – Different Vantage Point

July 19, 2010

Video Podcast

Rick, Hal & Juan where in Japan for PhotoFest Japan, and we had a blast and we very much enjoying teaching and learning from all the participants. While we were there, we took the opportunity to record a number of photo tips for you on video. Enjoy!

In this segment, Rick talks about the importance of shooting from a different vantage point. We shot this segment at the Tsukiji fish market in Japan, the worlds largest! Take a look.

In case you were interested, this video was shot entirely with the iPhone 4, the video quality from this iPhone is amazing. We shot almost all the photo tips videos from Japan using the iPhone4 while we recorded sound externally using a Zoom H4n recorder and Sennheiser EW100 G3 wireless mics. In order to keep the iPhone 4 steady we used the awesome Zacuto Zgrip iPhone Jr.

Did you know that this and all the other videos here on DPE are available via an iTunes podcast channel? Why is this cool you ask? If you subscribe to the DPE Instructional videos podcast channel on iTunes, whenever we upload a new instructional video it is automatically downloaded to your iTunes, and you can then sync it to your iPhone, iPad or iPod, and watch the videos anytime, anywhere. How cool is that?

So, make sure to head on over to the DPE Instructional videos podcast channel on iTunes and subscribe, and while you are there, make sure to give us a positive rating on iTunes. Thanks!

    Why don’t you also show the “uniqueness” of the resulting image? Would surely make the point better.
