How to Mimic Ambient Light Using Flash

How to Mimic Ambient Light Using Flash In this video, photographer Joe McNally explains how you can use a speedlight to mimic actual ambient lighting, which in this case would be the warm yellow-orange light produced by prayer candles inside a church in Mexico: The Problem Although the lighting was simple to set up, there were a few things to note. The church was dark and had a cavernous appearance to it. And just like any other church there were altars, icons, and banks of votive candles. McNally wanted to capture an image with the elderly woman standing close to one of these banks of candles. Unfortunately, for him the candles...

Hasselblad’s New H5D-200c Multi-Shot Spits Out Massive 200-Megapixel Files

Hasselblad’s New H5D-200c Multi-Shot Spits Out Massive 200-Megapixel Files Fair warning: your brain’s buffer might have a hard time processing this one. Following in the multi-shot heritage of the old CCD H5D-200MS, Hasselblad has released a CMOS version of the multi-shot behemoth. And like its older brother, it can spit out gargantuan 200MP files thanks to Hassy’s proprietary Multi-Shot technology that combines as many as 6 shots into one. Announced 5 hours ago over Instagram of all things, the H5D-200c is not for the faint of hard drive. It uses the same sensor as the H5D-50c, only this back can shoot 4 or 6 images and combine them in such a way that...

Sony Curved Sensor to Make Its Debut in Strange Perfume Bottle-Themed Selfie Cam

Sony Curved Sensor to Make Its Debut in Strange Perfume Bottle-Themed Selfie Cam You know what they say: see a need, fill a need. Or, in the case of Sony’s upcoming perfume bottle-shaped selfie camera, “see a fad, create a product.” We assume that’s written somewhere in the internal memo that first gave life to the camera you see above, a seemingly very real and definitely very strange camera that trusted sources tell Sony Alpha Rumors will be one of the first to feature Sony’s revolutionary curved sensor. This is where the details get hazy. Earlier this week, SAR made mention of a ‘strange’ new compact camera from Sony that...

If You Try to Publish a Picture of this Statue in Denmark, You’d Better be Ready to Pay Up

If You Try to Publish a Picture of this Statue in Denmark, You’d Better be Ready to Pay Up One of Denmark’s most photographed attractions, a Little Mermaid statue, comes with a strange caveat: it can’t be photographed. Or rather, a photograph of it can’t be used in a publication of any sort, even for journalistic purposes, without a big fat invoice finding its way to your door. You see, the family of sculptor Edvard Erikson, the man who created the iconic Little Mermaid statue, is known for being extremely protective and aggressive about the statue’s copyright. As a result, a number of Danish news and media outlets have received massive invoices for using a photo of...

These Groomsman Photos Are What You Get When You Go Crazy with Photoshop and Imagination

These Groomsman Photos Are What You Get When You Go Crazy with Photoshop and Imagination Photoshopped fantasy wedding photos have gotten quite trendy over the past couple of years, and often involve the wedding party running away from large and scary things (e.g. dinosaurs and AT-ATs). Louisville, Kentucky-based wedding photographer Shane Elliott recently took the concept to the next level with a set of wacky groomsman photos. In addition to standard wedding photos, Joe (the groom) and his groomsmen also had some “fun and silly ideas” in mind: Darth Vader applying his trademark force choke, George Washington crossing the Delaware, and an intense anime-style fight...

Barcelona Flow-Motion: A Fast-Moving Timelapse Film

Barcelona Flow-Motion: A Fast-Moving Timelapse Film Time Lapse Network has called him the Master of Time Lapse. Rob Whitworth has a knack for turning traditional timelapse photography into innovative and compelling works of art in the form of short films that tell relatable, evoking stories. “Barcelona GO!” is one of those stories: Whitworth combines his unique hyperlapse technique with the voices and sounds of Barcelona to create this amazingly smooth video—a result that can be best described as flow-motion. Commissioned by the Catalan Tourism Board, he had privileged access to some of Barcelona’s most famous and historic...

Kuddle: Instagram for Kids that Discourages Bullying and Teaches ‘Netiquette’

Kuddle: Instagram for Kids that Discourages Bullying and Teaches ‘Netiquette’ Kuddle isn’t your typical photo sharing app. Designed for children, this “Instagram for kids” doesn’t just offer a safe environment where the youngins can share photos and become future cappuccino photographers, it actually teaches them about proper online behavior, or ‘netiquette’, at the same time. The more we read about Kuddle, the more we wish adults had something like this too. As we all know, the Internet can be a hateful place, and photo-sharing sites are no exception. Which is why Kuddle’s developers created their app in the first place. They...

This Is What All The Metal Extracted from a Single Mine Looks Like as a Massive Sphere

This Is What All The Metal Extracted from a Single Mine Looks Like as a Massive Sphere There are precious metals and gems all around us. But have you ever wondered just how much metal comes from the mines we dig to extract the ore from which the final product is made? Maybe not… but one photographer did, and he created the photo series For What It’s Worth to share his findings with you. The project was undertaken by Cape Town photographer Dillon Marsh, whose work we’ve featured once before on PetaPixel. In For What It’s Worth, he attempts to quantify mining because, as he puts it, “[it’s] an industry that has shaped the history and economy of the country so...

Interesting Photo of the Day: Baby Elephant Greets His Egret Friends

Interesting Photo of the Day: Baby Elephant Greets His Egret Friends There are not many things in this world capable of being as cute as this baby elephant is as he attempts to make some acquaintances. Upon discovering a flock of young cattle egret patiently following him around, he extends his trunk out to the fledglings as if to say hello to his new feathered friends: Baby Elephant Meets Egrets (Via Imgur. Click to see full size.) Cattle egrets are known to follow herds of elephants so that they can easily hunt their next meal; the presence and impact of the elephants flush bugs out of grass and underbrush.
