Mesmerizing Photos of Frozen Flowers by Mo Devlin

Mesmerizing Photos of Frozen Flowers by Mo Devlin When you hear the term flower photography, it probably doesn’t inspire a particularly powerful reaction. There are plenty of gorgeous images of flowers — from wildflower fields to beautifully-lit bouquets — and so the genre isn’t somewhere we usually look for inspiration. That is, until we ran across photographer Mo Devlin‘s stunning shots of frozen flowers. Devlin isn’t primarily known for these shots. In fact, if you Google him, you’ll immediately come up with some beautiful photos of fish (that are well-worth taking a look at, by the way). For...

Australian Photographer in Hot Water After Threat-Filled Facebook Tirade

Australian Photographer in Hot Water After Threat-Filled Facebook Tirade Think before you post. This should be the message greeting all of us when we open up our social network of choice. Before we get a chance to do anything else, a big bold ALL CAPS message reminding us that our social media comments have consequences should appear front and center. Maybe if they had, Australian photographer Mark Hamilton wouldn’t be embarrassed, apologizing for a Facebook tirade in which he threatened to release racy photos of a model because she had ‘liked’ a post that insulted him. Reading that last sentence, you might think we’re click-baiting you...

But while Sandra Bullock’s character had more important things to...

Interesting Photo of the Day: Rush Hour in Bangladesh

Interesting Photo of the Day: Rush Hour in Bangladesh Anyone who utilizes public transportation has, at some point, felt a little crowded, but the image below may offer a little a perspective. The photo, which shows throngs of Bangladeshi crowding a train and platform, was taken during Eid al-Adha, a Muslim holiday sometimes referred to as the The Festival (or Feast) of The Sacrifice: An overcrowded train approaches a railway station in Dhaka, Bangladesh. (Via Imgur. Click for larger size.) Over the course of the three day holiday, Muslims gather to pray and celebrate with friends and family. As photographer Andrew Biraj has done a great job...

How to Use Lightroom and Photoshop Together in Harmony

How to Use Lightroom and Photoshop Together in Harmony There is sometimes a great division between Photoshop users and Lightroom users, as most photographers have a preference for one and generally stick to it. But, in this two hour seminar with post production wizard, Tim Grey, viewers get a walkthrough of his process, which perfectly blends the use of the two pieces of editing software: While Photoshop and Lightroom are set up to work well together natively, there is somewhat of a workflow involved when using the two in conjunction with one another. As added bonuses, Grey also covers a bunch of little tricks and tips to make sure you are...

Ben Von Wong Captures Great Fire Photos with a P&S For Cheap Camera Challenge

Ben Von Wong Captures Great Fire Photos with a P&S For Cheap Camera Challenge In yet another impressive (and sexual innuendo-filled… you’ve been warned) DigitalRev Cheap Camera Challenge, Kai has Benjamin Von Wong try to create some of his epic fire imagery using nothing more than a crappy Ricoh point-and-shoot that was probably bought at a Best Buy… on clearance… five years ago. Okay maybe not, but the camera they gave Ben to work with is a prime example of the kind of cameras that have been decidedly replaced by that little computer in your pocket. Not much zoom, zero manual control, a tiny sensor and convoluted menus come together into a...

Love Your Selfie: TODAY Show Hosts get ‘Fantasy’ Photoshop Makeover

Love Your Selfie: TODAY Show Hosts get ‘Fantasy’ Photoshop Makeover In a bit of contrast to the RAW Beauty Talks portraits featured yesterday, today we have an interesting before and after Photoshop comparison of the hosts of the TODAY show With the help (if you can call it that) of Cosmopolitan’s “Photoshop experts,” Matt Lauer, Savannah Guthrie, Al Roker and Natalie Morales were given a substantial post-production makeover.
