DJI Will Disable Your Spark Drone If You Don’t Update the Firmware

DJI Will Disable Your Spark Drone If You Don’t Update the Firmware DJI is releasing a new firmware update for the Spark camera drone, and this is one update that Spark owners will not want to ignore. If you fail to properly update your Spark, DJI will disable it and prevent it from flying at all. Earlier this year, there were some reports of DJI Spark drones falling out of the sky. This came just month after GoPro Karma drones were found to lose power, leading GoPro to recall and relaunch the Karma. But while the GoPro Karma’s issues were caused by a faulty physical battery clasp, the DJI Spark’s problem appears to be software based and...

I Biked Across the Canadian Rockies to Build a Photo Portfolio

I Biked Across the Canadian Rockies to Build a Photo Portfolio I decided a while ago that for my high school graduation and summer trip, I was going to photograph the Canadian Rockies. I started pursuing landscape photography seriously a little over a year ago and wanted to build a photography portfolio. I had mostly been shooting cityscapes locally around my home in Toronto and wanted more than anything to visit Banff and Jasper National Parks, and include them in my new website. The biggest hurdle that stood in my way, however, was my ability to drive, or rather the lack thereof. At 17 years old, I did not have a full driving license yet, nor did I...

This is How Shooting the Sun Can Melt Your Camera

This is How Shooting the Sun Can Melt Your Camera Planning to photograph the upcoming solar eclipse? You’d better make sure you have the right solar filter to protect your camera. Here’s a 2-minute video that shows how shooting the sun without protection can completely melt your DSLR’s guts. The folks over at Every Photo Store in Dubuque, Iowa, decided to do a test to see what unprotected solar photography can do to a camera. They mounted an old Canon Rebel XT (AKA 350D) to a $ 10,000 Canon 400mm f/2.8 IS II lens, pointed it up at the sun, and watched to see what would happen. With the mirror down (and without even...

Photographer Turns Island Mushrooms Into Colorful Arrangements

Photographer Turns Island Mushrooms Into Colorful Arrangements Jill Bliss, an artist living on a small island in the Salish Sea in the Pacific Northwest, is fascinated by the incredible variety of mushrooms that appear in the fall. She uses these as inspiration for her artwork, capturing images of the colorful fungi in attractive arrangements. Colossal writes that for her project, titled Nature Medleys, she produces photos, illustrations, and mixed media artworks of her finds. “I’ve plunked down my life savings for a modest half acre of cleared land on a small island of 30 full-time households to live out the rest of my days in tune with the...

US Military Bases Now Have Pentagon Permission to Shoot Down Your Drone

US Military Bases Now Have Pentagon Permission to Shoot Down Your Drone Your camera drone can now be shot down with US government permission if you fly it over a military base. That’s a new policy that was recently signed off on by the Pentagon. The Military Times reports that the actual policy itself is classified material and was sent out to US military branches back in July. The gist of the policy, however, was confirmed by Pentagon spokesman Navy Capt. Jeff Davis yesterday. Basically, bases “retain the right of self-defense when it comes to UAVs or drones operating over [them,]” Davis says. “The new guidance does afford us the ability...

The Rathods had claimed...

I Gave Up Painting to Do Photography, And It Shows in My Work

I Gave Up Painting to Do Photography, And It Shows in My Work Painting and photography are often considered similar artistic expressions. Henri Cartier-Bresson was a painter before he became a photographer, and became a painter again in his retirement. While his artistic sense informed his photography in terms of his ability to see the world in constantly changing light and compositional potential, he never considered photography as art. I can only wonder: if HCB had lived to see the full potential of digital and how it has afforded us the ability to paint and create with light as never before, might he have come to change his mind? Brush Strokes As a...

Instagram Stories Now Viewable on Desktop, Mobile Web Creation Soon

Instagram Stories Now Viewable on Desktop, Mobile Web Creation Soon Instagram is moving further and further away from its mobile-centric routes. Instagram has just announced that Stories can now be watched on desktop Internet browsers. Normally, users would have to upload or view stories using the smartphone application only. The Instagram website is notoriously limited in its ability to use the social media platform, leaving most of the functionality to the app itself. However, the dividing line between the two browsing methods is becoming increasingly blurred with this latest development. Heading to the desktop site, you’ll now be able to browse...
