MELVILLE, N.Y. — Nikon launched last week its “Nikon Behind the Scenes” video series, offering instruction and motivation to intermediate-level photographers.
The series follows a diverse group of photographers into the field, including Nikon ambassadors Joe McNally and Corey Rich and Nikon professional photographer Tamara Lackey.
The pros provide insight on subjects ranging from lighting, lensing, posing models, shooting landscapes, working with different subjects and gearing up for a shoot.
“Nikon is committed to engaging our fans with interesting and informative content, and the ‘Nikon Behind the Scenes Video Series’ is an entertaining way to fulfill this promise” said Lisa Baxt, Nikon communications associate general manager. “From the moment someone picks up their camera, they have in their hands unlimited creative possibilities and we hope this inspires them to make amazing images and videos. With this video series and the new community on Google+, Nikon is there to support photographers as they explore visual storytelling and tap into their creative potential.”
Ambassador and lighting expert McNally will begin the series with “Nikon Behind the Scenes: Light It Up with Joe McNally,” showing a range of possibilities and uses for speedlights and off-camera flash techniques. Over the course of five videos, he will show viewers how to make the most of lighting in almost any situation.
“Nikon Behind the Scenes: High Altitude Adventure with Corey Rich” will focus on Rich’s techniques for shooting portraits, time lapse, action stills and video while high in the Sierra Nevada mountains.
The series concludes with “Nikon Behind the Scenes: All in the Family with Tamara Lackey,” in which Lackey shares tips on taking successful portraits.
The first video went live on March 11 on the Nikon YouTube channel and the new NikonUSA Google+ page. A new video on a different topic will be posted every few weeks.
