How to Make a Beard-Growing Time-lapse

How to Make a Beard-Growing Time-lapse I recently made a timelapse of my friend shaving off his beard and walking backwards through a beautiful riverbed in Yosemite. When I flipped it around, he’s walking forwards through Yosemite and growing a beard. Here’s how I made it. First, here’s the finished product (you can find the same video on YouTube): This is the story of Billy. Billy was a bright-eyed, bushy-tailed, clean-shaven young man. He lived in the suburbs and had a good job. But then he started SMOKIN CRACK. He sold all of his possessions to pay for his habit. It got so bad he even sold his jacket and his...

18-Year-Old Retrofits an Old Konica Rangefinder with a Sony NEX APS-C Sensor, and It Works

18-Year-Old Retrofits an Old Konica Rangefinder with a Sony NEX APS-C Sensor, and It Works There are only a small number of cameras on the market these days that allow you to shoot digital photos while manually focusing with a working rangefinder. These cameras also cost quite a bit, so they’re not exactly the type of thing most enthusiasts can pick up on a whim and play with. Ollie Baker wanted one, but instead of paying the big bucks for one, he decided to convert an old film rangefinder into a working digital rangefinder. The 18-year-old tinkerer and photo enthusiast, who’s set to be a physics student at Oxford, decided to attempt this “FrankenCamera”...

Tamron 15-30mm f/2.8 is the First Ultra-Wide Zoom Lens to Offer Stabilization

Tamron 15-30mm f/2.8 is the First Ultra-Wide Zoom Lens to Offer Stabilization Tamron today announced the Tamron 15-30mm f/2.8 DI VC USD ulta-wide zoom lens, which the company says is the first ultra-wide zoom to offer image stabilization (called “vibration compensation” in Tamron-speak). Why vibration compensation on an ultra-wide-angle lens, you might ask? Tamron says that a “number of photographers” have voiced this need to them, and that the feature allows the lens to perform better in shooting night scenes and under low light conditions. The lens is designed for full frame cameras, and packs an ultrasonic focusing motor, 18 elements in 13...

‘Soviet Ghosts’ Captures Post-Apocalyptic Scenes Left Behind by the Fall of the USSR

‘Soviet Ghosts’ Captures Post-Apocalyptic Scenes Left Behind by the Fall of the USSR Rebecca Litchfield is a photographer who has faced radiation exposure risks, arrest and interrogations, and even accusations of espionage… all for the sake of her project “Soviet Ghosts.” You see, Litchfield is an avid urban explorer who has been fascinated by scenes of decay found in countries that were formerly part of the USSR. Photographing and exploring the old Iron Curtain isn’t the easiest thing to turn into a project, she says: Not many explorers travel to Russia, where the rules are very different, locations are heavily guarded and a strong military presence...

‘No Likes Yet’ Lets You Browse Through Instagram Photos That Have Gotten No Love There’s a new website that aims to rid the world of ‘un-liked’ Instagram photos.

Once inside, you’ll be presented with a seemingly never-ending string of Instagram posts that are yet to attract a single like. To entice you to like the forgotten posts, short messages appear as an overlay, sharing inspirational messages, such as “One small like for you…”...

Thoughts on Judging an International Wedding Photography Competition

Thoughts on Judging an International Wedding Photography Competition I had the honor of getting to judge a recent international wedding photography contest for Fearless Photographers, a great organization I’ve been a part of for the last few years. Fearless contests run several times a year and typically receive thousands (if not tens of thousands) of entries from around the world. There is no quota to meet for Fearless judges, so if an image is awesome, it gets an award. The judging is incredibly selective, and seems to get more selective with each round. Before going any further, I want to point out in bold letters that I did not shoot ANY of the images...
