Capturing Fire Dancers Under the Milky Way, on a Deserted Island

Capturing Fire Dancers Under the Milky Way, on a Deserted Island At the beginning of this year, I started the photography trip of a lifetime, planning to travel to all 7 continents in a single trip. Currently I’m at Siargao in the Philippines, a paradise location surrounded by beautiful white sand islands. Photographing the milky way is one of the highlights of my travels, as we barely get to do that back home in The Netherlands thanks to all the light pollution. Recently there was a performance at Viento del Mar with 2 fire dancers. Instantly, I thought of doing some long exposure experimenting with the dancers, trying out 3 to 10 second exposures with...

Facebook Repeatedly Censors Viral Father/Son Photo, Causes Uproar

Facebook Repeatedly Censors Viral Father/Son Photo, Causes Uproar A photo of a father cradling his sick son in the shower has taken the Internet by storm despite, or perhaps because of, repeated takedowns by social media giant Facebook. The image was captured by photographer Heather Whitten back in November of 2014, and shows her husband cradling their then-one-year-old son Fox who was suffering from salmonella poisoning at the time. “Thomas had spent hours in the shower with him, trying to keep his fever down and letting the vomit and diarrhea rinse off of them both as it came,” she wrote in a Facebook post that has, yet again, been taken...

Cheap, Light, and Slim: Shooting Macro with a Pancake Lens

Cheap, Light, and Slim: Shooting Macro with a Pancake Lens A few weeks ago, I traveled to the Central Valley of Costa Rica for a professional development opportunity through work. While my week in Central America was focused on improving leadership skills and cultural intelligence, I was stoked for the little free time I had for dedicated bug photography. Packing light as a photographer who wants to be prepared for every possible photographic scenario is tough. I purchased a large camera backpack specifically for this trip and anticipated bringing a variety of lenses and macro equipment including one of two macro lenses (Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 macro...

How to Break the Sync Speed Barrier with Studio Lights

How to Break the Sync Speed Barrier with Studio Lights The sync-speed limitation on modern DSLRs has remained a bane on the use of strobes at high shutter speeds. On most cameras, the fastest shutter speed at which you can sync with a flash is 1/250 or 1/200 of a second. Anything faster and you get the dreaded black bars in your images. Thankfully, there is a cheat which enables you to break that barrier. Andrew Boey shows how: High Speed Sync Technique The technique that Boey demonstrates is known as high speed sync. To demonstrate this technique Boey used simple tools: a Canon 60D APS-C DSLR, a Canon 50mm f/1.8 II prime lens, and a main...

Minimal Photos of Iconic Computers Throughout History

Minimal Photos of Iconic Computers Throughout History Photographer James Ball (AKA. Docubyte) recently teamed up with digital retouching house INK to create some beautiful, minimalist images of 10 iconic computers throughout history. We’re talking historic machines like the IBM 1401 and Alan Turing’s Pilot ACE, highlighted for the beautiful technology they are. The series is called Guide to Computing, but you could be forgiven for calling it vintage tech porn. The colorful series offers “a fresh take on the classic vintage design of ten historic computers” captured by Ball at the The National Museum of Computing. Since many...

Nikon D5 Pro Review: The Batman of the Camera World

Nikon D5 Pro Review: The Batman of the Camera World Powerful, insanely fast, supremely agile, hauntingly accurate and a master of the dark. The Batman of the camera world. I could end the review there, but what fun would that be? Introduction As with my Nikon D750 Review, this Nikon D5 review is founded upon real world usage in a professional shooting environment. You will not find specification comparisons, tests at each ISO or in depth technical breakdowns. While I am a technical geek at heart, the only thing that matters to me when I’m shooting is the ability of the camera. The Nikon D5 isn’t available in the UK yet, Nikon...

How to Create Stunning Sunset Photos with Luminosity Masks

How to Create Stunning Sunset Photos with Luminosity Masks There is something magical about sunset that seems irresistible to snap a photo. No matter what genre of photography you do, you must have—or will at some point—take a photo of the sunset. Most of the sunset photos we see are either exposed for the sky, making the foreground underexposed, or exposed for the foreground, leaving the sun and the sky overexposed. This is because our camera’s limited dynamic range compared to that of the scene and is a common problem in situations with extreme contrast. Underexposed Foreground A common solution to this is to bracket multiple...

How to Create Conceptual Photographs

How to Create Conceptual Photographs Conceptual photography is a type of photography whose primary intent is to communicate a message. The concept is both pre-conceived and, if successful, understandable in the final image. Fine art photographers have been using conceptual photographs to produce incredible projects and images since the dawn of photography in the late 1800s. The genre isn’t confined to just fine artists, though. Advertisers and illustrators have turned to conceptual photography to help promote products for years. The use of conceptual photography in marketing and advertisement led to the rise of the stock...
