A review of 2015...

I traveled the world and met and worked with some of the best people on earth. I'm planning on some shoutouts this week to people that made the year memorable.

One person that was on my original 2015 hit list of people I wanted to shoot with was this bombshell Emmy Corinne.

We worked together in Chicago just before she graduated and made her way out to LA. I think this image is the lead into her premium snapchat on her website. I'm still waiting for me free pass 😂. Knowing how much of a business person she is, I don't think it's ever coming.

Emmy was a blast to work with and this image certainly is in my portfolio.
Will you make my 2016 hit list? Taking bookings now. Let me know if you're interested in working together in the New Year.

Highlights of 2015...

@stephanileblancc was someone that I found on Instagram and reached out to her to see if she was interested in working together. I was drawn in to her beauty but also her awesome tattoos.

It just so happened that I was going to be in Chicago the first week of 2015 and she was available so this was in fact my first shoot of the year.

In our discussions I also found out that she does her own makeup which is always amazing. Her selfies are portfolio worthy.
We shot in Chicago as we were losing light which made the shoot incredibly challenging. I was constantly adjusting as the light quickly faded in the winter evening. When the light was finally gone we switched it up and shot with a speed light. I hate speed lights,but we made it work.

In the end, I was happy we got to work together and we've stayed in touch in the hopes of... more »

Definitely one of my favorites of the year!

This series of posts is meant to highlight some of my favorite people I worked with in 2015. The images are secondary to the stories about the shoot and the person. In fact, its 100% about the individual. For me, photography has always been about finding a connection with the person in front of the camera and that has to happen quickly. The images shown may not be the best I've created, but the memories of the shoot and the model have had an impact on me and that's why they deserve to be highlighted.___

Highlights of 2015...

@magic_of_macy and I shot again in 2015 and this time was great because she agreed last minute to come and help with a video I was making.

Macy went to Penn State and we met via some weird Twitter exchange between me and @karisamaxwell. We ended up doing a studio shoot and hitting it off. She's awesome.

Macy is a sports fanatic and hot. What more could you want. I'm so excited to see her career in sports broadcasting blow up.
This was one of the quick pics we got in between the video shoot. The shoot was for my Meet the Master video that is part of the photography education in the @magicalarcanum. It's an awesome Educational platform and I'm proud to be a part of it.

Another special thing about this shoot was I was joined by my friend and amazing photography from London @mhiggs2000.

Highlights of 2015...

@rachelwwood and I worked together on a trip to Atlanta in September.

The interesting thing about this shoot was that she brought an unusual raw vibe to the shoot that actually made the images unlike any of my other images.

It was probably the first time that I allowed the model to dictate the direction of the shoot as I usually have my own vision or ideas, especially on a TF shoot.

Lesson learned is to let the model take control once in a while. 😂👌🏻 The other awesome thing from this shoot was having @chrisloharley on set to shoot some of his own video. Hoping to see that sometime in the future.

After we finished we all went out and had a burger. 🍔

Highlights of 2015...

@aliciagoldfish was a great find while I was traveling in Minneapolis. I knew that she was beautiful but didn't know that the images we would capture were reminiscent of a 50's bombshell.

This is a color version of one of the images we ended up with. The black and white are my favorites, but there's just something about this color version that I had to share.

Sometimes shooting with random people in random cities gives great results. Alicia was a lot of fun to work with.

Highlights of 2015...

@geenagoodish is one of the few people I worked with locally that made my highlight reel. Not because the others weren't all awesome, but because I just really liked this shoot for some reason.

This was one of only a few shoots where we had an entire team helping. The shoot was styled by my friend @letsdazzledarlings (who incidentally just hit 10k followers yesterday 🎉). @vivabellasalon let me borrow their awesome staff of @stacey_nicole3 for makeup and @knockoutjewel for hair.

As for Geena, she's just beautiful and the portraits from this shoot definitely make my portfolio. Her snaps are also pretty great too. Finally, she does quite a bit of photography herself so I suppose I'm just a huge all around fan.

Cuba
Art, music and agriculture

Figured I would post a few pics from yesterday before heading out to see more of Cuba on our last day of this quick trip. These three pics represent the art, the music and the agriculture of Cuba.

If you want to read about each image you can check out my Instagram account @johnkaminski.

Room with a view...of Havana.
And my thoughts on my first day with the Sony #A7Rii

Here my view of the city at the Hotel Melia Cohiba in Cuba. About to head out to dinner at a local Paladar and then maybe some rum for dessert.

For those of you following because you're interested in my experience with Cece (Sony #A7Rii) here are my thoughts so far. Battery life sucks big time. I knew this coming into it so o brought five batteries to be sure I always had juice.

The controls are difficult to get used to because I'm a Nikon shooter but that will come in time. Having to go into the menu to bracket for an HDR is a pain in the butt relative to the D800E but I'm sure I can set some custom settings to make that easier.

The MF Assist is amazeballs as I can see exactly what's in focus very easily. One thing I really miss is the f/2.8 from my... more »

The MF Assist is amazeballs as I can see exactly what's in focus very easily. One thing I really miss is the f/2.8 from my 24-70. I just can't get the narrow dof that I like or the low light capabilities with the f/4. Having said that the ISO capabilities seem awesome on the Sony. I won't know until I get home and look at the images on the big monitor but in hoping they look good.

On a real positive side. The weight and footprint of the A7Rii is awesome. It's so light and easy to handle. That's a major plus when running around Cuba. I also love the wifi sync to my phone. I have two 128GB cards with me and didn't bring a computer. I'm shooting RAW+jpegs and so I can send a few images now and then to my phone while still having the RAW files at home and despite the huge size of the files I should easily get 4K+ images without ever downloading them until I get home.

As a footnote. I don't recommend relying on two memory cards and no backup on a trip to Cuba or any favorite destination. However, I had to pack light for this 4 day trip.___

2 hrs until Cuba
Experimenting with the #A7Rii

Here's the plane taking us to Cuba. Looks like it could be a little rainy for a few days when we first arrive.

Shot on "Cece" my Sony A7Rii and edited with snapseed. I was trying to figure out the bracketing of this. Seems that you can only go in increments of 0.3 or 0.5. Anyway have info on this? Anyway, this is just a single image edited on my phone in #Snapseed. A little overdone but it's too good to pass up when you're used to shooting people.

Camping out in Miami for the day and then off to #Cuba

Would love to hear some suggestions for what to do here in Miami. We're spending the day at a hotel at the airport which blows, but I'm guessing it's an easy cab to the city.

Adios Philly
Next stop Miami

You know I must be excited if I'm live posting my travels towards Cuba.

Snapped this image on the new #Sony #A7Rii and sent it directly to my phone. And just because I'm extra bored on the plane and also a little amused at all the cranky holiday travelers I decided to tweak it a bit in #snapseed.

By this time tomorrow I will be in Havana, #Cuba. As always I'm flying +American Airline

Headed to Cuba

Today starts my journey to Cuba for the holiday. Please unfollow me if you don't want to be inundated with pictures that will look like they were shot in the 1950's. I arrive tomorrow morning and hopefully I will have a bit of wifi here and there.

I'm also experimenting with my new Sony #A7Rii and will be sending the images from my camera to my phone to here jut because I can. Not sure I'm sold on this thing yet but I can tell you that the footprint of this thing is awesome. I went from carrying probably 20 lbs of equipment to carrying just a couple of pounds.

My back will thank me later.

Sharing this from my friend David for anyone interested!

The Traveling on a Photographer’s Budget mentorship is ready for sign-ups!



This is a special program designed to help you get out and see the world and break the stigma that “it’s just to expensive” through the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers. I will be taking on a handful of people for a 7 week on-line mentorship program which will include lessons, assignments, and informal discussions. Everyone who participates can have fun and learn at the same time!

I’ve dedicated my life to travel photography.  I’ve shot the northern lights past the arctic circle and thunderstorms in the desert.  I’ve been in 15 countries this year, with more coming before the year is done.  I’ve worked with master photographers and taught workshops in the Rocky Mountains.  My aim and goal is to get people out experiencing the world we have.


PLEASE NOTE: I am currently in Bulgaria, so timezone issues may apply while we are getting this started.  Later evening to nighttime for me is early morning to mid-day for you.

Selections will begin 11/17 for the mentorship beginning 11/20

These are the selection criteria:

• You must be taking and posting your own photographs regularly here on G+ –– an absolute minimum of three days between Public posts; more increases your chances of being selected. (The class itself will be private to the group selected except for the option of a public display album of your best work at the end.)
• You must be interactive here at G+, as you will be expected to participate in this program giving feedback and comments to others.
• You have no previous studies in this subject, since this program is designed for those who have not had the opportunity or advantage to add this skill set to their knowledge base.
• You have the time available to participate in this workshop.

To be considered for selection, please comment to the main post only, here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/+DavidZipprich/posts/jPPHU5vjUxh
(your application will not be seen at any reshares) and answer the following questions in your comment:


1) Photography skill level
2) Photo editing software used most
3) Favorite three subjects to photograph
4) Aspirations within photography
5) Current job or profession
6) Previous art studies
7) Amount of time you have available for participation

Couldn't have said it better myself.

Vulnerability is the Heart of Our Culture
What am I going to say that will be interesting to thousands of people!? IF they read it, will they think I’m crazy!?"

This is what through my mind about 100 times before I wrote this article.

The feeling was identical to what I experienced during my very own first critique session (with the amazing Robin Griggs Wood). I was a little overwhelmed and nervous about sharing my work with the world. Opening myself up to critique. I knew it would lead to improvement but I feared the process. I powered through it and was rewarded with several insights about my own imagination, creativity and what I should practice in order to improve along my learning path. Being vulnerable, putting myself out there, created new opportunities for growth.

After my critique, I felt like I passed through a gate. Being vulnerable was the key to that gate. The key to one more step along my learning path. Without the opportunity to be vulnerable, I don’t know if I could have progressed on my learning path. This goodness happens when every Member of The Arcanum nurtures and protects our culture of vulnerability and service. When we do this together, we enjoy an environment in which it is safe to be vulnerable. We share openly with an expectation of receiving courteous and constructive critique, absent of ridicule and rejection.

P.S. If you’re interested in learning more about how important vulnerability is to the creative process, check out this TED Talk by Brene Brown on the Power of Vulnerability.

Revisiting old images

I decided to revisit some old images to see what's changed inside of me. The answer? A LOT. 

I don't even feel like I took this image.

Hall of Fame

I laugh that there's even a Hall of Fame in Farrell, PA but I'm here and apparently it's a big deal. My mom is being inducted for her accomplishments working for over 34 years in the government for 7 presidents.

Best comment of the night from her.

"I know you don't like Hillary as a potential candidate. I don't like her personally."

Well I guess she has more insight than I do. Lol

My cat turned 15 today. She's still as active as she was when we bought the toy pictured here shortly after we got her. She won't let us get rid of it or replace it. It's her go to!

Who Created This Emoji 😜?
I'm betting it was Miss Montana USA

I recently did a shoot with Sibahn and thought I'd share a screenshot of a #bts . She was a blast to work with.

For the record, the emoji shows up on my phone post, but not on my computer. I'm guessing you can tell what emoji it is by her face. LOL
