A photokinaTV 2016 Video

You've probably noticed that we send photokinaTV and the presentations of our FotoTV. movie stars live to you this year. This requires a suitable software that among other important features should be stable especially!
For years FotoTV. is a very satisfied user of Boinx's Mac solution which formerly was called BoinxTV and has been renamed in mimoLive (Multi-In, Multi-Out Live Video Engine) now.
Leonard Christian is a guest at the photokinaTV stage and shows the streaming software and it's innovations. It can control up to nine different image sources. In addition, mimoLive works with Youtube and other social media platforms that allow livestream. The relatively low price makes it possible for smaller projects to use this solution.

Kazuto Yamaki, CEO of Sigma Cooperatioon, was guest at photokinaTV already in 2012. He came with an impressive challenge for the near future: He wanted to revolutionize the company, making Sigma the leading supplier of lenses in the high-end range.
Now, four years later, we see in the interview: Sigma has really given full throttle! Yamaki shows several brand new lenses and a camera whose features are forward-looking, in fact, and certainly juggle opposites: For example, the opposites of sharpness and bokeh, size and ease as well as of quality and the demands of a low price were decoupled by the Sigma engineers.
Yamaki and his team have put a lot of strength and sweat into this technical change process. Such a big project will only work with motivated employees. Yamaki also gives an insight into the collaboration of engineers.

We paid a visit to Bert Stephani in Belgium. He stepped into the woods with his fellow speedlight. With it, he tries to change the direction of ambient light. This can be achieved with the right combination of given light sources.

Bert's model is lit by daylight which becomes softened by clouds and surroundings. As he takes pictures, he demonstrates how to use a flash to combine it with natural light. After all he desires a natural look that doesn't give away the use of a speedlight.

Serdar Ugurlu Tames the Sea

Time, Time, Time,, we never seem to have enough. And how can we use it effectively ?
In photography this is something that rarely gets any special attention. If there light enough we don' t even think about it.  And with Auto everything on the camera, this liability is covered ... automatically.

What if we were able to really think about time and how this bears on the photo and then... crazy as it sounds ... try to use TIME to creatively make a given static location look like  something different? This is what Serdar from Photographer's Crossing  has done in this really informative new film.

At a prime sunset location along the Atlantic coast, in beautiful Portugal, we see how varying the time can create all kinds of possibilities in your results.  With insider tips for diminishing light and what extras you might need for a seaside photo sojourn, Serdar jumps right in with recommended times and exposures to help you achieve the best effects with fast receding daylight, water and rocks. So rock on !
