The Rare Blood Moon Eclipse Captured with Timelapse Photography Timelapse photographer, Andrew Walker was determined to shoot and display the images of a lunar eclipse in a way that nobody had ever seen before.

Interesting Photo of the Day: Australia’s Boneyard Falls

Interesting Photo of the Day: Australia’s Boneyard Falls Bombo Headland was the site of a tremendously scientifically important quarry in New South Whales, Australia. That’s where, in 1926, someone discovered the world’s longest geomagnetic polarity interval, near what would become the town of Kiama, giving the quarry its geological title of the “Kiaman Reverse Superchron”. Also, it’s really pretty:  The basalt columns, once part of a quarry, allow the waves to shoot straight up, requiring good timing for the waterfall effect. (Via 500px. Click for larger image.)

Some Jerk Stole My Camera — And Forced Me Out Of My Photography Rut

Some Jerk Stole My Camera — And Forced Me Out Of My Photography Rut This article was republished with kind permission from ReadWrite and Taylor Hatmaker. One particularly shitty evening two months ago, a freedom-inclined opportunist busted out the back window of my parked car and liberated a professional gadget lover’s gear bag—my gear bag—that was stuffed to the gills. At the end of the short trail of shattered glass, I took one look beyond the passenger-side window’s suddenly-jagged teeth, totally freaked out and made a beeline for the nearest bar (conveniently located a quarter of a block away). Two and a half beers deep into my mental inventory...

The latest project in London by Guus Ter Beek and Tayfun Sarier is no exception. They’ve taken Photoshop’s erase tool quite literally into the real world to great effect. Simply called ‘Street Eraser,’ this duo has gone around sticking cutouts of the Photoshop erase tool on objects, leaving behind the instantly recognizable checkered background that you’re left with when you erase...

Black Friday: Haunting Documentary Photo Series Captures Abandoned Malls in the US Credit: Photo by Seph Lawless. Cleveland-based photographer Seph Lawless‘s first job was in a bustling Ohio mall. Today, that same mall appears in his photo series and book Black Friday: The Collapse of the American Shopping Mall — a haunting series that pays homage to these victims of the recession and the online shopping revolution. His photos really need no further introduction, and so instead of spending time describing what you could simply scroll down and see, we sat down with Lawless (digitally) to talk about the hows and whys behind this eerie photo book.

On-Location Photography Tip: Use a Mini Softbox for Portraits Lighting in portrait photography can be tricky, especially if you’re not in a studio setting or if you’re working by yourself. You don’t want to be lugging huge softboxes and extra equipment around everywhere. Or constantly stopping the shoot to move those softboxes around. In this case, a small, portable softbox can be a real life saver that still contributes to flawless portraits: In the above video, photographer Joe McNally uses his Ezybox Speed-Lite Plus to effectively create focused lighting on his model in an outdoor photo shoot. Using the small, mobile light...

How Much Did Photigy Do to That Amazing iPhone vs Hasselblad Photo in Post?

How Much Did Photigy Do to That Amazing iPhone vs Hasselblad Photo in Post? Last week we shared a video that got both incredibly popular and controversial. It was put together by Photigy’s Alex Koloskov, and showed how he created nearly-identical product shots of a glass of whisky using an iPhone and a Hasselblad. Now he’s back to answer some of the concerns that readers brought up after watching that video, specifically regarding how much post-processing went into the image and if it would be printable on the large scale. His point with the original video was that the camera shouldn’t be your first upgrade. Spend money on lighting, surfaces,...
