An Exclusive Glimpse Into How Lomography Petzval Lenses are Made

An Exclusive Glimpse Into How Lomography Petzval Lenses are Made Back in June, Lomography raised nearly $ 1 million on Kickstarter to launch its new Petzval 58 Bokeh Control lens. It’s a lens that takes a classic design and adds a new twist: a bokeh control ring for adjusting the look of out-of-focus areas in your shots. Today we have some exclusive behind-the-scenes photos of how Lomography’s Petzval lenses are manufactured by the skilled optical technicians at the Zenit factory in Russia. Each lens is crafted by hand using brass and Russian glass lens elements. New Petzval 85 Lens Barrels waiting for testing and fine adjustments on the...

Video: How To Easily Remove Unwanted People From a Scene Using Photoshop

An unfortunate truth about shooting in public places is that people around us often get in the way of our perfect shots. In the 9-minute video tutorial above, photographer Greg Benz shows us how to remove “tourists” from photos using Photoshop. The process involves using multiple images and Photoshop’s median adjustment to get rid of any unwanted guests. The clone and heal tools can then be used to remove any artifacts caused by the effect.

This Site Will Sell Your Instagram Selfie Without Your Permission for $150

This Site Will Sell Your Instagram Selfie Without Your Permission for $150 Earlier this year, artist Richard Prince sparked a huge controversy by taking people’s Instagram photos, making very small changes to them, and selling the prints as fine art for $ 100,000 a pop. Now there’s a new website that’s following in Prince’s footsteps, on a larger scale but with smaller prices. It’s a service called Sellfie, which scours Instagram for the hashtag #selfie and then sells the photos as single-edition, high-quality prints for $ 150 — all without the photographer’s permission. The website (note: some random photos may be NSFW)...

Portraits of a Baby Boy and Bulldog Who Were Born on the Same Day

Portraits of a Baby Boy and Bulldog Who Were Born on the Same Day Chicago-based photographer Ivette Ivens has been shooting a heartwarming series of portraits of her son and dog and the special bond they share. The baby boy, Dilan, and the French bulldog puppy, Farley, were born on exactly the same day about 8 months ago. Ever since Farley joined the family, he has been eating, napping, playing, and bathing together with Dilan. “I’m pretty sure Dilan thinks they’re both the same species, as they are both going through the stage of chewing on everything,” the photographer tells The Daily Mail. She calls the relationship “pure,...

Surf Photographers Hired to Photograph Dirt Biker? I’m not one for surf lingo, but there is nothing to say about this video other than,”Sick!” This is what happens when one little boy who dreams of being a professional surfer grows up to be a professional motocross legend instead. This is Pipe Dream, the video of Robbie Maddison’s incredible feat of riding Tahiti’s powerful waves on his motorbike: Pipe Dream is the product of three years’ testing and hundreds of spills.

How Much Can You Overexpose Negative Film? Have a Look!

How Much Can You Overexpose Negative Film? Have a Look! Want to see how much you can overexpose C-41 color negative film and still get usable shots? Photographer Daniel Lachman of Retro Camera Review decided to film out recently after coming across a broken Mamiya 645E with a busted light meter. “With digital images, overexposing can ruin your photos at the dreaded ‘255 white level,’” Lachman writes. “But with C41 color film, it’s really the inverse relationship, with detail getting lost with under-exposure. But in terms of over-exposure, it theoretically has no limit.” To test this...

An Intro to Lightening and Brightening Eyes in Adobe Photoshop CC

An Intro to Lightening and Brightening Eyes in Adobe Photoshop CC It is said that eyes are the windows to our souls and when focusing in on a portrait, we do our best to make sure they are razor sharp. With a bit of help from Photoshop, we can take the beauty of the eyes a step further. Today, we will be examining a method that I have personally used over the last few years to truly make eyes pop and give them another dimension of depth. Our goal is not to make the eyes violently vivid or blinding but to give them a look that strengthens the overall focus of the image. As an example, we will be using a public domain photograph taken by Petra on Pixabay....

Interesting Photo of the Day: A Rainbow of Umbrellas Every summer—for a few weeks, at least—locals and visitors in Águeda, Portugal enjoy a colorful canopy of umbrellas during their strolls through the city. The floating umbrellas have become an annual tradition at the Ágitagueda art festival, a public art installation that provides both some cheerful color and welcome shade from the summer sun: “Sunny Mood” by Veselin Malinov. (Via Imgur. Click image to see full size.) Veselin Malinov captured the scene with a Canon EOS 550D at f/9 and with a shutter speed of 1/400 of a second. He specializes in street...
