Director of Photography Mitch Martinez Offers 1,500 of his 4K Stock Footage for Free


"I'm here to help. It's very rewarding to contribute to the film community, the entertainment of people, and even educational applications. It's kind of a "day off" type of thing. When I filmed the "film category" with the 8mm film projector and film reels and turntable, those shots were done over the course of three or four days at 1 a.m. after a full day of work each day (while I still had some energy); so, I turned on some lights, booted up the camera, and had some fun with it."

Mitch Martinez felt people might be able to use more 4K video clips for use in their creative projects. He decided to gather them up and offer them for free for commercial use. Awesome! He's offering over 1,500 clips organized into categories such as animals, nature, fire, etc. He's a skilled photographer and his clips are super high quality.

iPhone 6S to Feature 12 MP Camera and 4K Recording


According to all of the tech blogs Apple will be upgrading their previously longstanding 8-megapixel camera to a 12-megapixels. Rumor also has it that they'll be introducing 4K video recording. All of this is in response to direct competition from smartphone makers like Samsung. 4K video recording has been standard for competing Android phones for some time.

Some other features will be higher quality front-facing sensor with a flash for even more perfect selfies. :) The new phones should be rolling out next month.

Do You Own a Point-and-Shoot and Like Macro Photography?


According to commercial and wedding photographer JP Danko, your old point-and-shoot might be the best macro lens (camera) you have lying around. He says he ALWAYS uses it to get the details in his wedding work and claims the images are often better than when he uses his high-end macro lenses.

Check out the article here to see what he has to say and check out his images.

Last day of shooting in Utah


Last day of shooting in Utah ~ Finally got a good picture with @officialemilyprocter Emily Procter. She is incredibly intelligent, talented, down to earth, kind & professional. The hours we all put in as a team are just crazy, I'd say even more than disaster aid work, so there isn't much time for anything else. So proud to be a producer & photographer on this incredible project. I have huge admiration & respect for everyone on the cast and crew. We have a couple more days left in Cali, but we feel we are at the goal line in the forth quarter. #loveeverlastingmovie @loveeverlastingmovie

This officer showed up and tried to shut our production down. He was really mean. In other news, I landed my second tiny appearance in the movie. It's an amazing, killer shot thanks to @jlarsl #loveeverlastingmovie @loveeverlastingmovie
