[CR] Great Photojournalism in dA: Our Collection 1
If “Your community, your choice” = true, then “Our community, our collection” = need to do!
:iconheleflirtplz: It’s simple logics!

I started a collection in mid-November 2008 that I dream of us to continue together. It is called Great Photojournalism. You can see it at: http://helewidis.deviantart.com/favourites/?7202532#Great-Photojournalism-in-dA
Together we will raise community spirit and community will within Photojournalism. Together we will make the best photojournalism collection ever and with that we will honour the great photojournalists in dA and make them feel proud and appreciated!
Or… if not, at least we can try! :flirty:
Note me with “Great PJ” in subject and in the note give me 1 to 5 thumbs (notes can only take 5 thumbs per time, but you can send more than 1 note if you wish) of photos from the photojournalism

Set up for stop motion images
I put this in my journal today but figured others might like to know...
Ok, so lots have asked what my setups are like. I usually don't show them because, well, sometimes they are really horrible looking. Duct tape everywhere, fishing line strewn all over the place, flashes in every direction.
Lot's have asked how I do the drop shots. Like this one...

Well, it's really simple actually and doesn't need that much in the way of equipment. Well, I should say that it isn't that much relatively speaking compared to a 300mm F2.8 Canon lens.
Here's a breakdown:
Shooting Table: $200 (http://www.calumetphoto.com/item/SV0205/)
Flashes: Used - $300 ( you can get away with 2)
IR Trigger: $240
Glasses: In my career? Well that 300 f2.8 is looking pretty cheap now. :rofl:
Clean up is the expensive part!!!
Paper Towels: $1.2 million
New Carpet: $2000
Set everything up and drop some glasses. Here's what my setup looks like for a real simple rig with 2 flashes.

Who's this guy?

Journal Entry: Mon Jan 19, 2009, 9:28 AM
The photography gallery page is good for you. Have some every day!



Ok, so it's been pointed out to me that I haven't updated this journal in quite a long time. Fair enough! It's been well over a year since I wrote that I was back from China. I think I might have visited dA about 10 to 20 times since then. I'm not sure why I haven't written a lot lately. It's not that I don't love dA still. I do. In fact, I'm really impressed with the redesign. The site works fast and it looks great too. There are plenty of new inspirational artists here, in photography and in other media too.  

Anyway, I'm not sure if anyone here still remembers me, but I wanted to write something more up to date to satisfy my own needs. I don't want to leave loose threads hanging.

I'm sure I'll be visiting dA now and again, and sharing some of my new images here too. In the meantime, you can also find me on my Facebook "fan page" (that term makes me cringe), as well as on my personal profile there.


It's been a while thumbs

Kevin Thom
Artist | Professional | Photography
Canada
Kevin Thom is an award-winning photographer who specializes in commercial, promotional and headshot photography for artists and business people. He is based out of his studio in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.
Kevin takes an art-centred approach to all of his photography. A hallmark of his style is a distinct focus on visual communication. This tendency comes from the ongoing development of his conceptual series called "Elemental." This series distills its subject matter to its most essential element, whether that be a shape, texture, color, attitude or emotion. Kevin then highlights this element using dramatic and unorthodox lighting, angles, perspective and composition.
Kevin's work has appeared in numerous magazines, on book covers, and in other publications around the world. He has exhibited his artistic and conceptual photography in Canada and the US, as well as overseas.
Kevin is heavily influenced by the dramatic cinematic lighting style used in Hollywood movies. Some of his early influences include George Hurrell, who pioneered that style of lighting, and Yousuf Karsh. Kevin also admires the work of Erwin Olaf, Platon, and Annie Liebowitz.
