This is What Adobe’s Dehaze Slider Does to Photos of the Night Sky

This is What Adobe’s Dehaze Slider Does to Photos of the Night Sky Adobe’s new Dehaze slider has been wowing photographers since it was launched for Lightroom and Adobe Camera RAW last month. We’ve seen what it can do for haze, rainy days, and blizzards, but there’s yet another interesting application: enhancing photos of the starry night sky. New Zealand-based photographer Tom Mackintosh recently did some casual experiments with this late one night from the outer suburbs of Auckland, where light pollution still affects his view of the sky. After setting up his Canon DSLR and Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 lens, he captured this photo at ISO 3200,...

Photographer Killed by Train During Photo Shoot in Fresno, CA

Photographer Killed by Train During Photo Shoot in Fresno, CA Less than a month after Union Pacific launched a public safety campaign that warns photographers against doing shoots on train tracks, another photographer has been killed doing just that. The Fresno Bee reports that a 25-year-old photographer was struck and killed by a train at about 5pm yesterday while doing a photo shoot with a model. The man was reportedly trying to capture a photo with a southbound train whizzing by in the background, and failed to notice a northbound train approaching on the other set of tracks he was standing on.

Photos of a Happy Baby Orca Leaping Out of the Sea

Photos of a Happy Baby Orca Leaping Out of the Sea Photographer Clint Rivers recently spotted what may be the happiest little baby orca in all the ocean. The Victoria, British Columbia-based wildlife photographer was on a boat in the Salish Sea when they came across a pod of killer whales and a 6-month-old orca leaping over and over out of the water. The young calf was born back in January and has been named J50 by the Pacific Whale Watch Association (PWWA). “I’ve never seen a baby whale breach like J50’s been doing,” PWWA director Michael Harris tells Global News. “Her energy is astounding – I guess not unlike my...

Photo App Frontback Shutting Down After Attracting $4M in Funding and 2M Users

Photo App Frontback Shutting Down After Attracting $4M in Funding and 2M Users It looks like the idea of sharing front- and rear-camera photos at the same time isn’t lucrative enough to be big business. After raising a whopping $ 4 million from investors, the unusual photo-sharing app Frontback is now announcing that it will be shutting down on August 15th, 2015. The service allowed people to create diptychs with both cameras on their phone through pushing a single shutter button. The resulting photos could then be shared with friends through the Frontback social network. In a message posted to the app’s website, founder Fredd della Faille says that...

Use a Low Camera Angle for Landscape Photography

Use a Low Camera Angle for Landscape Photography It seems as if everyone is trying to be a landscape photographer these days. With the advent of digital imaging and the corresponding ease in cranking out pictures, photography is everywhere. Because of this, it’s getting harder and harder to create landscape images that are different and not the same old stereotypical stuff that everyone else is shooting. “Tree of Life” captured by R K Images Many photographers go to great lengths to put their own creative stamp on their work, using such things as camera filters or complex computer editing techniques to gain a unique...

Artist Buys Billboard Ad Time to Display Giant Photos of Nature

Artist Buys Billboard Ad Time to Display Giant Photos of Nature Artist Brian Kane recently purchased advertising time on digital billboards along interstate freeways in Massachusetts, but instead of putting up more ads to compete for commuter eyeballs, Kane decided to put up photographs of nature. The project is titled “Healing Tool.” “The goal is to provide a moment of temporary relief and unexpected beauty during the daily grind of commuting,” Kane writes on his website. The artwork is “simulating the Photoshop Healing Tool to replace or patch over the landscape which is blocked by the billboard.” During the...

OpEd: The Failing of Modern Photography Education

OpEd: The Failing of Modern Photography Education At some early point in my 4-year stint as a film student at the University of Miami, in Florida, an advisor explained I’d have to dual-major in a field outside the school of communications. This seemed a perfectly reasonable request of the school to make; after all, the advisor said, as communication students we needed something to communicate about. The requirement was largely the reason, at some point during my sophomore year, I decided to double-major in Fine Art Photography. I aspired one day to be a director of photography, and figured that having an overwhelming command of cameras...
