Video: Get Creative with Fishnet Stocking for Filters and Camping Lamps for Lighting

Video: Get Creative with Fishnet Stocking for Filters and Camping Lamps for Lighting DIY methods are usually done for two main reasons: necessity or experimentation. In the above video, Film Riot uses the latter of the two to see just what they can do to spice up their imagery using items you have laying around the house or cheap objects you can purchase at almost any store. The first DIY project they work on is replicating the look of a softening filter; specifically Tiffen’s $ 100 Black Pro-Mist. Not exactly cheap, the Film Riot guys attempt to replicate the look using a trifecta of female hosiery, which can be purchased at almost any store. While the panty-hose method...

Time-Lapse Shot by the Rosetta Spacecraft as It Approached Comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko We’ve never wondered what it’s like to approach a comet… just never crossed our minds.

Report: Nikon’s All-New Full Frame Shooter Will be Marketed as an ‘Action’ Camera Nikon Rumors is reporting that the mystery full-frame camera Nikon is said to announce at Photokina next month, the one that some speculated would be a ‘true’ replacement for the D700, will actually be marketed as an “action” camera.

Paris Officials Ask Tourists to Ditch the ‘Love Locks’ and Take a Selfie Instead

Paris Officials Ask Tourists to Ditch the ‘Love Locks’ and Take a Selfie Instead Ever since 2008, lovers from around the world — about half of whom, statistically speaking, have probably broken up by now… — have pledged their eternal love to each other by attaching a lock to the Pont des Arts bridge and throwing the key in the Seine. It’s sweet. It’s romantic. It’s symbolic. Unfortunately, it’s also starting to put an unacceptable strain on the bridge, and so Parisian officials are launching a campaign that seeks to replace love locks with a fleeting 21st century alternative: the selfie.
