New Video! Sydney Shot on iPhone 7 Plus

Yo friends! New video (kinda) is live on Youtube. I say kinda because it's a 30 second video I threw together whilst trying to learn how to do Sam Kolder type zoom transitions.

The video is from my ferry ride to North Sydney over the weekend. It is completely shot on iPhone 7 Plus - edited on Adobe Premiere Pro & After Effects.

Parts of the video was shot on the slow mo feature on the iPhone, as well as 1080p at 60fps (the later is recommended for good slow-mo without sacrificing video quality). 

I hope this video will tide you over for now. I'm working on a 2016 wrap up video / showreel so stay tuned for that! 

Please like, share & subscribe to my Youtube channel! It'll help me out tremendously!

4 Photographers Shoot the same Photo (Bondi Beach)

4 Photographers Shoot the same Photo (Bondi Beach)

A photo posted by Benjamin Lee (@itchban) on

01. @itchban (me, above)

Hi friends! The other day I went out shooting at Bondi Beach with a few other friends. The conditions lined up perfectly and I took one of my favourite photos of the year that day (see above). The sea mist was thick and the sun broke through a small patch of clouds for a few minutes. That produced these crazy rays which were cast over the hill & building through the mist and onto the beach.

I shot mine on a Canon 6D with a cheap Sigma 30-700mm Lens.
ISO 100, 1/4000s, f/5.6

It was a challenge to shoot because I knew I wanted to just cut the sun out of the frame so it wouldn't flare too much. I wanted a surfer or swimmer in the bottom, with that section being in focus, plus I wanted to line up that specific building as a main focal point too. All of that, on top of waiting for the light to be just right so the rays and colour would come through.

Take a browse below at the other photos from my friends. Pretty cool how we all shot the same thing, yet all our photos are so different.

Who did it best? Which one do you prefer?

I like mine the best obviously lol. But excluding mine, I'd have to say I like 04. @yojeddy. Jerry went the extra mile and jumped in the water to get that shot from a different perspective. Oh, and he only used his iPhone 7 Plus...

Instagram Weekly Top 5

A photo posted by Benjamin Lee (@itchban) on

Hi friends! I've decided to start a new weekly blog series featuring my top 5 favourite photos from Instagram (listed in no particular order). The genre of photo's will be broad; but you can probably expect a little bit of street, portraits and good amounts of nature & landscapes.

I'll try my best to feature different accounts so that you can hopefully discover new accounts to follow. I'll be embedding the photos straight from the users (web) Instagram so you can find their usernames and follow them directly from here.

This is a new format of weekly blog post so hopefully you guys will like it and I can keep it going. 

Should I feature it on my Instagram stories? (Maybe I will ever now and again). I'd love if you could give me some feedback or even some recommendations of people to feature via the comments below.

Landscape Photography Tutorial (Shooting & Editing)

Landscape Photography Tutorial (Shooting & Editing)

Shooting Landscapes (Above)

Hi friends! Here's a quick video link to @andrewtkearns full video tutorials on how he both shoots & edits his landscape photos. Super helpful! His style is always one that I've had a huge amount of respect for.

Watch the video above first.

Editing Landscapes

In the second video, he runs through his entire process of editing a few of the landscape snaps he took. What's most helpful / important about his video tutorial is that he doesn't use any presets to get started. This will really give you an insight in all the Lightroom Modules and tools you need to familiarise yourself with (if you want to achieve a similar look to his).

You should probably check out his channel and throw it a subscribe too. He's quickly becomming one of my favourite vloggers - esp with the recent departure of Casey Neistat.

Hi friends! It's been a minute since I last did a kit flatlay. I've put together a light weight day kit that's perfect for a solo stroll around the city, some reading in a park and maybe some work inside a cafe.

Huge thanks to Incase for sending out some of their rad products for me to play with. A full review on their iPhone 7+ cases, Battery Pack & Wrist strap is coming soon!
