Review: Yongnuo’s 35mm f/2 Lens for Canon EF Packs a Punch for the Price

Review: Yongnuo’s 35mm f/2 Lens for Canon EF Packs a Punch for the Price When it comes to the world of Nikon and Canon, there seems to be an endless selection of lenses. Recently, the Chinese company Yongnuo has announced that they will be manufacturing lenses for both of these camera giants. Today, we had a chance to play with the company’s latest YN 35mm f/2 lens for Canon EF mount systems. At $ 120, the lens sounds like a steal compared to its official Canon counterpart, but is it worth even that price? The Yongnuo YN 35mm f/2 is a fixed focal lens that supports both full-frame and APS-C format camera systems. The unit features seven aperture blades and a...

‘Steam and Dust’: Photographer Captures a Leopard Silhouetted at Night

‘Steam and Dust’: Photographer Captures a Leopard Silhouetted at Night African wildlife photographer Greg du Toit captured this photo last year of a leopard out on night patrol. It’s a shot for which everything seemed to come together for Du Toit for a beautiful composition. “My job as a wildlife photographer is multifaceted but I am most often trying to portray my beautiful subjects in beautiful ways,” the photographer writes on his blog. “If I do this effectively I awake within my audience an appreciation for not just the individual creature, but for its entire species.” “As wildlife photographers these seeds of...

Interesting Photo of the Day: This Tiny Garden Vole Is Better At Photography Than You Are

Interesting Photo of the Day: This Tiny Garden Vole Is Better At Photography Than You Are During a photo session in his garden, nature and wildlife photographer Simon Roy had the honor of meeting the Ansel Adams of the rodent world: “Evolution” by Simon Roy (Via Imgur. Click image to see full size.) Little Ansel here is actually a bank vole, a tiny species of rodent that is native to mainland Britain. Usually measuring only about 9–11 centimeters long, this curious fellow and his pals usually prefer to live in shrubby forests, but in the face of habitat loss, they can readily adapt and thrive in lush gardens. While Simon Roy’s garden...

Humor: What if Hitmen Were Asked to Work for Free?

Photographers often get asked to shoot for free in exchange for experience, exposure, future work, and images for their portfolio. What if a hitman were approached with the same request? That’s the idea found in the 4.5-minute sketch above by College Humor, titled “Guy Who’s Too Cheap To Pay An Assassin.” Oh, and it pokes fun at the world of crowdfunding personal projects as well. (Warning: there’s a bit of language and violence). [via PetaPixel] [via...

I Was a Victim of the Fake Negative Review Scam That Targets Photographers

I Was a Victim of the Fake Negative Review Scam That Targets Photographers There is currently a scam targeting photographers nationwide. It begins with a threat of false negative reviews if a business owner doesn’t pay a “reputation management fee”. Whether the business responds or not, the scammers will post many negative reviews then offer to have them removed or pushed down the search results… For a fee, of course. My photography business, Nyberg Photography, has become a victim of this extortion scam, as have countless other photographers around the country. It’s very important to research all reviews, whether good or bad, to...

How Do You Make a Time Slice Photo?

How Do You Make a Time Slice Photo? We’ve seen timelapse and we’ve seen hyperlapse. But what’s time slicing? To quote photographer Dan Marker-Moore, “A time slice is more than a photograph. A time slice takes a series of photographs and combines them into one single image. It takes slices of the same photograph offset in time from several seconds up to a few minutes.” Marker-Moore is a passionate photographer. But before he’s a photographer, he’s a motion graphics and animation artist by profession. The passion to shoot images just intersperses with his work—during, before, and...

The Magic of a Chemical Photo Restoration Process

The Magic of a Chemical Photo Restoration Process If given an old print to restore, most photographers these days would probably choose to scan it and fix the image up in Photoshop. Japanese restoration expert Murabayashi Takao uses a different technique: one that involves the magic of chemical processes. Watch and be amazed in the 10-minute video above.
