I’ve recently been inspired to go into my digital archives and revisit some of my “oldies but goodies”. With newer, more responsive photo editing software now available is a re-do of some of my favs in order? Can I now make images work that maybe didn’t make the cut two, five, ten years ago? Let me know your thoughts in the comments. I’m going in…wish me luck!
I'm sharing an experiment that I thought you might find interesting. Using a variety of portable HD video cameras I documented a portion of day one of the Springs Wildfire in Ventura County, CA on May 2, 2013. The point was to not only test out the cameras but to share "a day in the life" of a Fire Photographer with you...from my perspective. It's a rough video with no bells or whistles. It's meant to just be a taste of my experience on the fireground.
On a side note for those unfamiliar with Fire Photographers, we are all credentialed members of the media and/or official fire department photographers on scene documenting the events and efforts for the public. We communicate via two-way radio, as you can hear in the video.
On this episode of Fireground Action Photography Craig Durling returns to base camp with Ross Benson, Ted Pendergast and Joe Brown and tries to remember how to do this "podcast" thing. Well, it hasn't been THAT long! Anyway, the panel with catch you up on what they've been up to and will answer listener questions.
Check out our friend Andy Thomas as he talks about Fire Photography on the August episode of "Burning Issues".
