David Hobby, Zack Arias, Joey L, all well-known photographers. They've each got 25 minutes to set up, shoot and process one shot during this shoot-out. Joe McNally is the judge. A very interesting video:

Thanks for sharing!

Very cool video,Hobby was super funny. :) The first photo was the best in my opinion. Joey was very original & that is very important for a photographer.

Thanks, I really enjoyed that video!

I was kind of disappointed that the polaroid joey took was for real.

And the woman in the end said, they are all three really great photographers and professional how they handled the models... Was she even paying attention..

Well,it's America. Joey is an American cliche stereotype.
Any lame photographer will be famous there,especially kids. I know two kids,ages 15 & 16,that make amazing photos & they have great editing skills too. But that's life...here,a photographer can die a genius,nobody will care.

^^Seconded.

He's a poser and that was a stupid stunt he pulled to be funny. Based only on that, he belongs in the ranks of our good old youtube friend you all know who I'm about about..

Love the vid. I enjoy Joey L, he takes a completely different approach to his work and yes, he has fun!! Isn't that what its all about?

jgmatthews....

yes, it is...but i'm sure the ppl who paid for him to be there in the audience deserved better than that.

it was funny, yes...but he still shoulda taught them something.

Ironically, he's Canadian.

It's a shame a few of you got offended by his performance though. It's just another display of the hypocrisy shown by photographers. We're all "oh, it's the picture that matters" or "don't dwell too much on equipment", and yet you're all harping on him because he chose to shoot a polaroid instead of utilizing oodles of camera equipment that is beyond the reach of most of us.

Yes, people paid to learn something and he did exactly that. He taught them that it's all about the picture, not your equipment. Sometimes we as photographers need to be reminded of that.

I did enjoy the little show Joey L put up. David and Zack showed how to make a properly prepared photograph in the first two parts of the workshop, the last bit was fun. And the probably unintended side-note about how photography is not about gear is a good lesson!

I think he was just being a smartass. There's no different approach in having the two girls sitting there and taking a picture with a polaroid, then taking a picture of the picture (yo dawg, anyone?:D), I mean, that's what I see every weekend on the streets of my city: people with compact cameras shouting "get over there" and then pointing and shooting.

On the other hand, David Hobby's approach of using other photographer's flashguns in optical slave mode to make them look like paparazzi was simply awesome.

That's my 2c.


P.S. I noticed that Zack Arias was using the AF-recompose technique, isn't that supposed to be bad?
