Photographer Documents the Oldest Living Things in the World

Photographer Documents the Oldest Living Things in the World What does it mean to capture a multi-millennial lifespan in 1/60 of a second? Or for that matter, to be an organism in my 30s bearing witness to organisms that precede human history and will hopefully survive us well into future generations? These are the questions Rachel Sussman asks herself in her quest to photograph continuously living organisms that are over 2,000 years old: Since 2004, Sussman has been making her way around the globe in search of some of the world’s oldest living things. Before setting off on her journey, she began researching continuous living organisms at...

GoPro’s iOS App Gets a Visual Update with Sleeker, Minimal UI

GoPro’s iOS App Gets a Visual Update with Sleeker, Minimal UI Almost a year to date after iOS 7 was announced and released to developers, GoPro has finally given its GoPro iOS app a visual makeover, ditching the clunky, old design that the app has sported for quite some time. Similar across the board in navigation and controls, the main difference is the actual UI of the app, which takes advantage of the sleeker, more vibrant and minimal iconography present in iOS 7. The update is universal, so the changes will be noticed whether you’re using the GoPro app on an iPhone or iPad. The functionality within the app stays the same, still offering the...

Photo Prank: Just How Many Photos Will a Passerby Take for You?

Photo Prank: Just How Many Photos Will a Passerby Take for You? We’ve all been the victims of seemingly endless photo shoots for strangers. We’ve been out walking when we’re asked to take a photo for someone. Before we know it, we’ve been handed several phones or cameras and perhaps even asked to do re-takes for a group of people on their special night out. And we’ve probably been the culprits, too! As photographers, we readily help out others asking for a “quick” snapshot. But how far will some individuals go to achieve the group photo dreams of others? This is exactly what the hosts of The Chaser wanted to find...

Memorize These Simple Photography Lessons for Better Photos

Memorize These Simple Photography Lessons for Better Photos They say a picture is worth a thousand words. From a photographer’s standpoint, it may also be worth several important photographic lessons. Joe McNally reveals the many basic photography techniques found within his photographs: Using a Nikon 50mm f/1.4 lens and available light, McNally captured two seemingly straightforward images of Mexican cowboys or “charros.” But as McNally put it, “One very simple photograph can involve numerous photographic lessons.” Within McNally’s images we discover some rudimentary teachings relating to color theory, the rule of thirds, image...

Then & Now Photos Pay Tribute to The 70th Anniversary of The Liberation of Paris

Then & Now Photos Pay Tribute to The 70th Anniversary of The Liberation of Paris August 19th, 1944 was the beginning of The Liberation of Paris, the six-day battle between the Parisian-led French Resistance and German forces. Occupied and governed by Nazi Germany since June of 1940, it was on this day that the Parisians decided to strike back against the German garrison. Five days later, the French Resistance received allied help by means of reinforcements from the Free French Army of Liberation and U.S. Third Army troops, and together, they overcame the German force’s stronghold in the French capital. In a tribute to the events that took place almost 70 years ago,...

Woman Accidentally Lights Her Hair on Fire During Video Selfie Attempt

Woman Accidentally Lights Her Hair on Fire During Video Selfie Attempt Author note: The below video contains some NSFW language This woman’s selfie game is on fire… literally. While out with friends, the young lady in the video was anxious to get herself into the frame of an arm’s-length video when she leaned a bit too far and got more than she bargained for. Lit by what seems to be a fairly small tea candle, the woman’s hair was on fire for 2–3 seconds before she realized her red hair had taken on a bit ‘warmer’ of a tone in the most interesting of ways — or unfortunate of ways, if you’re a glass half empty type of...

Canon’s Latest Invite to Pro Dealers Hints at August Announcement of the 7DMII

Canon’s Latest Invite to Pro Dealers Hints at August Announcement of the 7DMII Word on the street — this particular street being Northlight Images — is that Canon pro dealers in Germany are getting invites for events in July to prepare for a particular announcement in August. And while this isn’t anything out of the ordinary, the fact that pro dealers are involved at such a level means that some sort of prosumer DSLR announcement, as well as some possible lens updates, are very likely on the docket. When you combine that with reports that the 7D will no longer be available from dealers starting in July, it’s easy to conclude that the long-awaited 7DMII...

AppCam Claims Leica Stole Its Software for the Leica T, Slams Them via Press Release

AppCam Claims Leica Stole Its Software for the Leica T, Slams Them via Press Release About a month ago, Leica debuted the touch-friendly, aluminum unibody Leica T: a hand-polished beauty that, despite the standard (read: REALLY!?) Leica price tag has been received pretty positively. Well, by some people at least. There is one company that was less-than-thrilled when they saw the Leica T, however, and that company’s name is AppCam. According to AppCam, the operating system on the Leica T is almost identical to the AppCam OS… the same OS that they tried to shop out to Leica two and a half years ago. AppCam drew the same conclusion that you probably drew when you...

Flickr to Drop Google and Facebook Login Options at the End of this Month

Flickr to Drop Google and Facebook Login Options at the End of this Month Earlier this year, Yahoo! announced plans to wean off the Google and Facebook-based logins for its services. The first victim was their sports service platform, and at the end of this month it’s Flickr’s turn. Emails have already gone out to a number of users and will likely continue being seen over the coming days. In the email, Yahoo! states that Google and Facebook ID logins will no longer be accepted after June 30th. By then, all Flickr users who have not already done so will have to create a Yahoo! account and connect it to their respective Flickr account if they would like...
