I love these types of photography lighting walkthroughs. In this video, Karl Taylor explains each light's role in creating the final exposure and then builds the image up one light at a time so you can see exactly how each light fits into the equation.
If you are interested in lighting or product photography, this is definitely worth a little more than 5 minutes of your time. [Sean]
From the Karl Taylor YouTube Channel:
In this video Karl Taylor demonstrates with Urs Recher his techniques for carefully and precisely lighting a product image of a designer brand mens shoe. With delicate positioning and accurate lighting a stylish image is created using broncolor's range of 'Picolites' for product photography.

Lowepro ProTactic Series
From Lowepro:
Three Shoulder Bags and Small Backpack Added to Six-Piece Series for Mission-Critical Access to Compact Gear
Petaluma, Calif. – September 22, 2015 – Lowepro, the leading maker of photography carrying solutions, today launched four new models designed for compact camera setups – three shoulder bags and one backpack – as part of its award-winning ProTactic series. The urban-inspired, six-piece collection offers high performance and mission-critical access to professional photographers and enthusiasts who need a bag that delivers on all fronts: accessibility, versatility, comfort and organization.
“We received tremendous, positive feedback on our ProTactic series when it first launched a year ago,” said Tim Grimmer, vice president of brand and product at Lowepro. “Our design team couldn’t wait to expand the series to mirrorless kits as well as professional DSLRs, creating trustworthy bags as powerful as the compact gear carried by journalists, street photographers and enthusiasts.”
The first generation of the ProTactic series launched last year with the 350 AW and 450 AW. The expanded line now includes:
  • ProTactic SH 120 AW – A small but robust shoulder bag with room for a mirrorless kit, such as the Olympus OM-D E-M1, with attached lens, extra lens or flash, smartphone and personal essentials.
  • ProTactic SH 180 AW – A mid-sized shoulder bag that fits a standard DSLR, such as the Nikon D750, with a 24-70mm lens attached, one to two extra lenses, a tablet, smartphone and small personal items.
  • ProTactic SH 200 AW – A modern, photojournalist-style shoulder bag designed to fit a professional DSLR with a classic 70-200mm lens kit, two to three extra lenses or speedlights, up to a 13-inch laptop and tablet, smartphone, and accessories.
  • ProTactic BP 250 AW – A scaled-down pack that protects a complete mirrorless kit with a 12-40mm lens attached, space for three to four extra lenses or flashes, an 11-inch MacBook Air, smartphone and accessories.
ProTactic shoulder bags include cinch straps and zippered accessory pouches to expand the amount of gear as needed, SlipLock attachments and built-in memory card pockets. The SH 180 AW and SH 200 AW include a water-resistant top-zip opening as well for fast access to gear.
The new ProTactic BP 250 AW offers multiple modular accessories and cinch straps; back-entry access for easy setup and extra security; a convenient, turret-style top opening; two fast-access side pockets; and Lowepro’s ActivZone harness for targeted comfort and support.
The ProTactic line expansion also includes the photographer-friendly features of the first-generation packs, such as the patent-pending MaxFit system of padded and fully adjustable dividers for fine-tuning gear fit; a multiple-strap build for easily adding capacity; and a patented, built-in All Weather AW Cover to protect gear from the elements.
The ProTactic SH 120 AW (US MSRP $99.95), ProTactic SH 180 AW (US MSRP $129.95), ProTactic SH 200 AW (US MSRP $169.95) and ProTactic BP 250 AW (US MSRP $189.95) are available at select retailers.

From Triggertrap:
  • This October, Triggertrap is calling on the global photography community to help create an epic timelapse movie of the city they love.
  • Triggertrap are holding events in London, Cape Town, New York City, San Francisco, and Milan to create a crowdsourced timelapse snapshot of a single day in each city.
  • The events will bring together photographers of all experiences and include talks from timelapse professionals.
This October, Triggertrap – creators of the world’s most powerful timelapse photography tools – is calling on photographers from around the world to create timelapse movies featuring the cities they love. The timelapse clips will then be combined to create a powerful crowdsourced timelapse film - the biggest international timelapse project ever attempted.
Following the success of 2014’s LapseLondon event, in which London-based photographers teamed up to create a stunning timelapse film of their city, Triggertrap are calling photographers to action in cities all over the world in a bid to create an incredible international timelapse story of urban life. The timelapse events will take place in London, Cape Town, New York City, San Francisco, and Milan, kicking off with this year’s LapseLondon event on 11 October 2015. The events will all be free to attend.
Bringing together photographers of all skill levels and backgrounds, Triggertrap hopes to pool those collective skills and local insights to create the biggest and best internationally crowdsourced timelapse film yet. With footage being shot by teams of photographers in each city and a final film that spans continents, the end result will be a city symphony not to be missed.
Featuring timelapse tips from top photography experts, participating photographers from all backgrounds will be given the tools and the knowhow to create high quality, innovative timelapse footage.
From famous monuments to bustling crowds to office blocks, Triggertrap wants photographers to capture the local views that matter to them, and paint an honest picture of the photographer’s environment. This project is about uniting these photographers across the world with the common goal of celebrating urban life through timelapse photography.
The finished timelapse films and documentary of the events will be available online in November via Triggertrap’s Vimeo page and website.

Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM Lens
Image quality results from the EOS 5Ds R have been added to the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM Lens Review.
Note that Canon does not officially support extenders being used with the 70-300 L lens. However, with-extender results are included in the image quality results for this lens. As this lens is extended to increase focal length, adequate space becomes available for extenders, with their protruding front elements, to physically mount. Care must be taken when using these lens combinations as impact will occur if the 70-300 L is retracted (zoomed out) far enough with an extender mounted behind it.
B&H has the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM Lens in stock.

2015 InfoTrends US Mobile Imaging Study
From PMANewsLine:
"Generations have a significant influence on consumers’ digital and mobile photography habits. According to an InfoTrends’ report, Digital and Mobile Photography in 2015: Millennials vs. Gen X and Boomers, older Millennials, age 23-34 years old, are the most photo-active group when it comes to use of a digital camera and the number of photos taken, writes Ed Lee in an InfoTrends blog post. On the other hand, young Millennials, age 15-22 years old, are most likely to use a smartphone as their primary camera and capture the most photos on their phones."

Tokina 11-20mm f/2.8 AT-X Pro DX Lens
Image quality results have been added to the Tokina 11-20mm f/2.8 AT-X Pro DX Lens page.
Based on the requests we have been receiving for test results, the new Tokina 11-20mm has the interest of many. This APS-C format-only lens appears similar in build and specs to the shorter focal length range Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 AT-X Pro DX II Lens. While an image quality comparison between these two lenses (and many others) is available, discernment between test cameras models must be made.
B&H has the Tokina 11-20mm f/2.8 AT-X Pro DX Lens in stock with a $50 instant rebate available.
