Game of Thrones Intro Remade Using Macro Mold Timelapses

Game of Thrones Intro Remade Using Macro Mold Timelapses Timelapse title credits for television shows are getting to be pretty common, but this one definitely stands out. One creative YouTuber recreated the Game of Thrones intro credits using some really stunning macro mold time-lapses. The original footage was created by Russian photographer Nick Lariontsev, and we featured it here a little over a year ago along with some awesome behind the scenes photos showing how the tiny timelapses were captured. What YouTube user Transcend Rules did was realize that the footage fit in exceptionally well with the Game of Thrones title credits. Thus, Game of...

Photographer Totally Misses a Huge Boat Crash, Gets Called Out on TV

Photographer Totally Misses a Huge Boat Crash, Gets Called Out on TV The lesson of the video below can be summed up in one very simple phrase: always pay attention to your surroundings. This photographer didn’t, and he got called out on television for his lapse. The video is of the Extreme Sailing Series, and it was posted on YouTube by the The World Sailing Show. Most of it isn’t particularly intriguing—unless you happen to be into extreme sailing of course—but right at around the 13 minute mark a major crash happens as one of the boats runs full speed into a concrete wall, and the shore-side camera that captured it was photobomed (or...

The Dirtiest Secret In Photography: Get Your Inspiration Outside Photography

The Dirtiest Secret In Photography: Get Your Inspiration Outside Photography World-renowned photographer Chase Jarvis has a major piece of advice to share, something he’s calling “the dirtiest secret in photography.” It goes like this: find inspiration outside of the photography world. This might sound like counter intuitive advice, but in the nine minute episode of his show #cjRAW, Jarvis goes on to explain why it isn’t. In fact, he claims that many (if not most) of the most successful photographers in the industry do this. The reason is simple: if you turn to the photography world for inspiration, you’ll never stand out. Instead,...

This Custom Instant Camera Drone Drops Photos from the Sky

This Custom Instant Camera Drone Drops Photos from the Sky A student at the Rochester Institute of Technology had a creative idea for his Visual Media Innovation Project this past semester: he created the first (to our knowledge) instant camera drone by hacking a Fuji Instax Mini 8 camera onto a DJI Flamewheel f450 drone kit. Built by recent graduate Nick Kundrat, the drone does exactly what you might expect it to. In this video of its maiden flight on April 23rd of this year, you see the drone taking off, capturing images, and dropping them onto the ground like… well kind of like a pigeon pooping on an unsuspecting tourists in NYC. At least...

This Underground Camera Obscura in the English Countryside Seats 5

This Underground Camera Obscura in the English Countryside Seats 5 Installation artist duo Anna Heinrich and Leon Palmer loved the landscape around Hadleigh Country Park in Essex, England so much, they decided to capture it forever through the magic of the Camera Obscura. Thus was born “The Reveal.” The Reveal is an underground camera obscura installation that is literally built into a hillside in Hadleigh Country Park. It’s made from a 3.5m (11.5ft) long Weholite pipe with a 260mm lens fixed to the door like a peep hole and an ash-lined interior including a bench that seats 4 to 5 people who want to enjoy the landscape in a...

College Won’t Let Grads Throw Their Caps, Will Use Photoshop Instead

College Won’t Let Grads Throw Their Caps, Will Use Photoshop Instead Well, this is odd. A university in the UK is banning the traditional throwing of mortarboards at graduation; but no worries, they say, students can pretend to throw their hats and the event’s photographer will Photoshop them in after! This year’s graduation at the University of East Anglia in the UK is going to be a strange (and possibly quite comical) one. Groups of students who want to take the traditional mortarboard throwing photograph with their friends won’t be allowed to. They’ll have to pretend to do it, and rely on Photoshop instead. The ban on mortarboard...

Capturing the Most Beautiful Castle in Italy Before It’s Auctioned Off

Capturing the Most Beautiful Castle in Italy Before It’s Auctioned Off Castello di Sammezzano (Non Plus Ultra) has to be the most beautiful castle in Italy. Often called abandoned, it’s not actually so; every once in a while it is opened to the public for a guided tour and volunteers take care of the place. At the moment it is being auctioned to the highest bidder. Volunteers that have been taking care of the castle for years are afraid that it’s going to be turned into a luxury hotel or spa-resort, while they would rather see it open as a museum for everyone to visit. The architecture of the building is amazing. I have never seen anything like it. The...

Canon 5D Mark IV Being Tested in the Wild, Should Arrive in August

Canon 5D Mark IV Being Tested in the Wild, Should Arrive in August Are you ready for the Canon 5D Mark IV? Because it’s right around the corner. A new report reveals that photographers are already testing the camera out in the wild, getting the software ready for the expected August release. The report comes from our friends at Canon Rumors, who have been told that “more than a few” Canon preferred photographers are out there testing the Mark IV in the real world. If that is indeed the case, this means hardware for the Mark IV is finalized, and software is what remains to be tweaked ahead of the expected announcement in August. In...

Don’t Talk to Me About Analogue Photography

Don’t Talk to Me About Analogue Photography Change is continuous, and language evolves as a consequence. Fresh words are formulated or old words are re-purposed to name new things. In the field of photography, the new word is analogue, and it’s applied to something old. photo by Kevin Dooley This term has crept into common usage as a means of differentiating between film and digital photography, and thus analogue photography has come to mean anything that is “not digital.” But, it’s an ill-conceived name, and not entirely fit for its purpose. So what does analogue actually mean? The adjective...
