Hey everyone. Matt Kloskowski here from Kelby Media Group. First off, thanks so much to everyone over at 500px for giving me the platform of their blog today. What I'm writing about here (long exposure photograph) is actually something that 500px's photos inspired me to do a couple of years ago.
Hey! If you’ve been paying close attention to our social media you know that we have teamed up with PetaPixel to bring you a great contest. PetaPixel is the coolest blog on the Internet for photography enthusiasts. Photo and camera news, reviews, inspiration, you name it. If you haven’t heard about the contest yet hurry up, deadline is this Friday May 24th.
If you’ve ever been to a race you would remember how contagious an adrenaline rush can be, and if you’ve ever tried shooting a race you would remember how hard it is to capture just the right moment. Today we’d like you to meet Ernesto Araiza, an action photographer from Ensenada, Mexico. Ernesto photographs local off-road races; be it bicycle, car, motorcycle, you name it. His images capture the spirit of each race with great skill and passion, so if you have never been to a race here’s your chance. Enjoy!
Looking for more race photos? Visit Ernesto's 500px page, there you can see his full body of work, add him to friends and follow future uploads.
Our blog is a place to promote 500px photographers and their brilliant photos. Every week we want to introduce you to new and up and coming photographers, whom you may have not discovered yet. If you’d like to be featured on our blog or nominate your favourite photographer leave a comment below.
In order to get that summer feeling we needed we decided to use leaves of different kinds to cast shadows together with a light that could reproduce the sun light: we used a single 2000W Arri light (Arri lights are usually for cinema sets). Erika, the make up artist was holding the leaves alternating with Mia, our fashion stylist. Photos will be published once they will come out in the magazine. For now you can take a look at the backstage pictures. I shot this video myself between one outfit and another." - Giuseppe Circhetta
Giuseppe Circhetta is a fashion and beauty photographer based in Italy. He got in touch with us via email and his sensual work with undeniable appeal caught our eye. If you'd like to see Giuseppe’s photographic work take a look at his 500px page, blog and website.
We think that photographers make great videographers and so we'd love to share the videos created by 500px users with you. For more videos browse the blog and let us know if you’d like to be featured. Last time we shared “Toronto Is Home”, a three minute time-lapse that shows the city from most fascinating vantage points.
