The Future of Photography

The Future of Photography After reading Stephen Mayes’ essay on the end of photography (Time, 8/25/15) I couldn’t help but respond. To begin with, his main proposition is that “in the future there will be no such thing as a ‘straight photograph’” to which I’d add that I’m not sure there ever really has been much of a ‘straight photograph’ although in recent decades the public has become increasingly aware of this. Ed Weston, photographic pioneer of American Modernism referred to the photograph (in 1932) as a “willful distortion of fact,” and this was long before Photoshop… and the debate...

The Magic of a Student Astronomy Camp, Captured with the Sony a7S

The Magic of a Student Astronomy Camp, Captured with the Sony a7S The team at Uncage the Soul Productions followed 23 high school students around as they spent a week at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry’s Astronomy Camp. The event was held during the 2015 Perseids Meteor shower and videographers were able to capture the reactions of students as they witnessed the beauty of space through their own eyes and, of course, a couple of DSLRs. After the students became acquainted with the vast world above, they were taken to the Oregon Star Party: a gathering of over 600 astronomy enthusiasts and professionals. Be sure to check out the awe-inspiring...

This is What Victorian ‘Photoshopped’ Photos Look Like Up Close

This is What Victorian ‘Photoshopped’ Photos Look Like Up Close “Photoshopped” photos may be everywhere these days, but retouching images to make them look nicer has been around since the early days of photography — it was just done differently through the years as new techniques and technologies emerged. British photographer Tony Richards owns a number of old plates that were likely made during the age of the albumen print in the mid-to-late 1800s. Close inspection of the plates reveals the retouching that was done to the portraits after they were created. Richards found that the plates have what appear to be “pencil marks”...

CNET reports that Adobe Systems will be making the announcement at their upcoming MAX Conference in Los Angeles that runs from October 3rd through the 7th. Under development, the software is currently being referred to as ‘Project Rigel’ and will bring the...

Interesting Photo of the Day: Malibu Sunset

Interesting Photo of the Day: Malibu Sunset Synonymous with surfers, sandy beaches, and some of Hollywood’s most recognizable films and TV shows, Malibu is more than than the sum of its glitzy parts. This long exposure features a behind-the-scenes perspective—after the sunny skies have faded and the beach-goers have gone—instead offering a view of dark cliffs and wispy tidal streams against a brilliant sunset: “Malibu Sunset” by Our Earth in Focus. (Via Imgur. Click image to see full size.) Mark Lehrbass drove 40 minutes to capture this particular shot, but concluded that braving the Southern California...

Behind the Scenes of a Treacherous Alpine Photo Shoot

Behind the Scenes of a Treacherous Alpine Photo Shoot Alpine photographer Kamil Tamiola takes us to the heart of the Italian Alps, in Aosta, where he’s on location for a professional Alpine photo shoot. The landscape, action and sports photographer climbs with two experienced mountaineers 3,300 meters up Mont Blanc Massif, where the snow and glacier are unpredictable and altitude sickness is a real threat. Here’s how he captures incredible, dramatic shots when there’s no room for second chances: There are many things to consider with climbing photography, especially when it comes to safety. You have to understand and...

Portraits of People Looking Like Their Dogs

Portraits of People Looking Like Their Dogs People often say that dogs and their owners look more and more alike as the years go by. For her ongoing project “The Dog People,” German photographer Ines Opifanti is shooting portraits of dog owners trying to mimic the expressions on their dogs’ faces. Finally, here’s a self-portrait of Opifanti herself with her dog Fleur: Opifanti says that while she doesn’t believe that dogs and their owners look the same over time, she does think that owners can become very good at mimicking and interpreting their dogs’ subtle expressions. A freelance...

According to the source, the camera will...

To the MAX: Photoshop’s 25th Anniversary and the Creative Event of the Year

To the MAX: Photoshop’s 25th Anniversary and the Creative Event of the Year Photoshop’s 25th year has been a big one. We’ve been searching for 25 of the most creative visual artists under the age of 25 (we’ve announced 14 as of this week), launched our Instagram channel, and added Artboards, Design Spaces, a Glyph Panel ($ &@!) and more to Photoshop CC.

Edelkrone QuickReleaseONE Claims to be the World’s First Universal Quick Release

Edelkrone QuickReleaseONE Claims to be the World’s First Universal Quick Release If you constantly move your camera from one device to another in the course of your work, you may have experienced the annoyance and inconvenience of different manufacturers offering different plate designs. What they generally have in common, however, is the same standard tripod screw. The folks at Edelkrone used this fact to create the QuickReleaseONE, which the company claims is the world’s first universal quick release for switching between plates. At the heart of most tripod plates sits the standard 1/4”-20 screw that connects to your camera. The QuickReleaseONE takes advantage...
