Action Sports Photographer On Capturing Some Extreme Kayakers

Tim Kemple a renowned action-sports photographer created this video documenting one of his trips to Mexico where he photographed some of the most talented kayakers in the world. He uses the Phase One, 645DF+ with an IQ180 digital back and 28mm lens at a shutter speed of 1/1600th.    

My friends would say I like to tinker. Impossible flash syncs, complicated rope work, and razor thin focus planes. The athletes push the limits of their bodies and equipment. I do the same.

2 - Baseball Jerseys Transported to a Soccer Universe

Design M. Willis needed something to do. He decided as an exercise to test his design chops and indulge his love of soccer. “Soccer Out of Context - a look at how other identities and brand properties would appear in the soccer / fútbol aesthetic, instead of their own. “

His Rules:

  • I’m not reinventing club histories, or pretending clubs were soccer teams all along, just translating their brands to the soccer “universe”.
  • I’m not changing logos, colors or visual properties - just trying to play within existing boundaries.
  • Today I’m using soccer kits - jersey shirts only, really, as this was a quick exercise - as the visual output. One per team, too - no away designs this time.
  • Where I can, I’m making guesses about the identities to fill in blank spots that don’t map easily over to soccer.
  • I’m trying to have fun, and I don’t take this seriously as anything more than palate-cleansing design exercise.
