As the United States celebrates Independence Day with barbecues and fireworks, it’s an appropriate time to honor Americans, past and present, who have dutifully served their country. Robert Seale put the spotlight on his subject, Col. George “Bud” Day, when he photographed the Vietnam War veteran with an F-100 Super Sabre last year. This video provides a behind-the-scenes perspective of the epic photo shoot that made the cover of Air & Space/Smithsonian magazine (for those of you reading this by email, the behind the scenes video can be seen here):
Seale’s portfolio is full of polished portraits that give his subjects an air of strength and power. Pulling off these cover-worthy shots requires elaborate planning and efficient use of time and light. For this shoot, Seale and his crew orchestrated a pre-dawn photo session involving the movement of a fighter jet. He used large softboxes along with the early morning ambient light to define his subject. Close attention to detail allowed him to capture a number of striking images with the rising sun peaking over the horizon.
The lighting and perspective used in Seale’s photo shoot give Col. Day a well-deserved heroic look. Day, who spent over five years as a POW in North Vietnam, bears numerous awards, including a Medal of Honor and the Air Force Cross. He served in the military from 1942 to his retirement in 1977.
Setting up a portrait shoot involves more than an appropriate choice of location and equipment. As demonstrated by Seale, photographers also serve to create a mood that depicts the model in a way that highlights his or her persona.

Henri Cartier-Bresson is one of the most well-known names in photography. Many may be familiar with his work, but not all may be familiar with his philosophy. Below is an original short created by 522 productions that incorporates an interview with Cartier-Bresson to show what it is that inspires the photographers as 522 (for those of you reading this by email, the video can be seen here):
Perhaps one of the most interesting responses Cartier-Bresson has is the one in which he talks about new ideas. Today, we often think that there can’t be anything new created. Everything’s been done. Everything’s been thought of. And we think, maybe if we lived 30 years ago, we could have created something new. But Cartier-Bresson laughs when he says this:
40 years ago Cartier-Bresson said this. 40 years ago, he said there are absolutely no new ideas. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t create new things. So you shouldn’t be disappointed when you see someone create something that you think is completely original because there is always something different that can be done. In fact, seeing “new” things just goes to prove that there is still plenty of room in the world today for “new” things, even if they are just variations or a rebirth of the old.
