BTS: Shooting a Subzero Time-Lapse at 10,000ft in the Swiss Alps

BTS: Shooting a Subzero Time-Lapse at 10,000ft in the Swiss Alps Timelapse photographer Drew Geraci recently headed up to the Gornergrat Observatory from Zermatt to shoot a time-lapse of the Toblerone Mountain: Matterhorn. In this 4 minute video, he shows how the shots were set up and the outcome of the project. Packed in to their bags, weighing around 200 pounds, was all the equipment used for the shots: the Sony a7R II, a7S II, Canon Cinema Primes, Kessler Second Shooter and Cinedrive motion control systems, and Manfrotto tripods. Geraci and his assistant Justin Majeczky took the highest open-air railway in Europe – the Gornergrat rack...

Caltech Made a Sensor That Could Be the Lensless Camera of the Future

Caltech Made a Sensor That Could Be the Lensless Camera of the Future The brainiacs at Caltech have produced something really cool: an imaging chip that produces an image from light sensors… without lenses. It’s a chip that could be the birth of the future of photography. The camera has an arsenal of light receivers, each of which can individually add a tightly controlled time delay to the light it receives, allowing you to “look” in different directions and focus on different things in the scene in-front of the chip. “We’ve created a single thin layer of integrated silicon photonics that emulates the...

This Mind-Bending Video Was Created Using Paint, Oil, and Liquid Soap

This Mind-Bending Video Was Created Using Paint, Oil, and Liquid Soap Artistic filmmaker Thomas Blanchard is back with another mesmerizing experimental video, combining forces with Oilhack to create this otherworldly 2 minute film. Blanchard has spent years perfecting the art of mixing paints, oils, and other liquids to create these alternate universes. Filmed with a macro lens and mixed with an ethereal soundtrack by Velvet Coffee, the result is captivating. Blanchard developed a new process to “open” his paints for this film, which he considers his best, as he told PetaPixel: « Galaxy gates » is the pride of our collection. It is the result of a 4...

Instagram Tests Favorites: Things Are Going to Get Personal

Instagram Tests Favorites: Things Are Going to Get Personal Things are about to get personal on Instagram. Eagle-eyed users have spotted that Instagram is testing its new ‘Favorites’ feature in response to feedback requesting a more personal experience on the app. The new feature is just one of many recent rollouts from Instagram, and this one is expected to officially launch in a matter of months.

With social pressures and the fear of offending onlookers, users...

How Photoshop is Used to Censor Ads and Album Covers in the Middle East

How Photoshop is Used to Censor Ads and Album Covers in the Middle East I admit, the first time I saw these images I though they were fake. Someone probably added their clothes on as a joke. But when I realized the context and saw the source of the images, it made sense. The fact that the execution was bad made it hilarious. Bored Panda published a series of before-and-after photos showing how the same products and images look in the West versus the Middle East. “Bikinis and mini-skirts may be commonplace in the Western world, but the Middle-East is a slightly different story,” Bored Panda writes. “Countries like Saudi Arabia and Iran enforce...

How to Customize the ‘Before’ View in Lightroom

How to Customize the ‘Before’ View in Lightroom In Lightroom, the backslash key can be used in the Develop module to toggle the Before/After view. But you can actually do more: here’s a 50-second video that shows you how to customize which “Before” view is shown. Usually, the backslash (\) key (which, by the way, is the one usually located above the Enter key) is used to toggle between the most recent edited view and the original unedited image. However, you can change it so that something other than the original image is displayed when toggling it. The example used by Lightroom team member Benjamin Warde uses a black and...

Macro Safari: Turn Your Backyard Into a Photo Adventure

Macro Safari: Turn Your Backyard Into a Photo Adventure Yesterday was a rainy, hazy day at home. I didn’t feel much like going anywhere but I needed to find something to do that didn’t involve sitting or work. I decided to break out one of my macro lenses and a flash with soft box diffuser to go macro hunting around the house. The random breaks in the rain would give me a few minutes at a time to venture beyond the front door to explore all the plants we have around the house. This macro safari managed to keep me entertained for the afternoon and on into the evening. I started out photographing some flowers but soon found some other more...
