Winter Wedding Photography Tips

Winter Wedding Photography Tips When I saw the headlights of a wedding car shining through the thick winter fog the other day, I knew the appointed photographer for that wedding would need some seriously good luck to produce a satisfactory wedding album. “Winter” captured by Irina Kahl (Click image to see more from Kahl.) More and more couples opt for winter weddings because of discounts in prices and greater availability in this less popular season. So what should a photographer do to make sure the elements will not lessen the quality of his or her wedding photos? Here are some useful tips: 1....

Interesting Photo of the Day: Oh, To Be a Cat

Interesting Photo of the Day: Oh, To Be a Cat Cats have it pretty good — basking in the sun, taking catnaps, walking around like they own the world. Ancient Egyptians believed that cats were sacred and practiced a religion based around a cat-like goddess. And sometimes it seems like our feline friends are trying to convert us! “The World Is Beautiful” captured by Seiji Mamiya (via imgur, click for larger image.) Today’s photo features a tabby cat having a good ‘ol time, enjoying a sunny day in a field of tall grass. Captured by photographer Seiji Mamiya, the sun-drenched photo is bathed in a soft yellow glow,...

Touching 61st Anniversary Photos Inspired by the Pixar Movie ‘Up!’

Touching 61st Anniversary Photos Inspired by the Pixar Movie ‘Up!’ Sixty-one years ago, when Dorothy and Donald Lutz got married, there was one conspicuous absence as they recited their vows: the wedding photographer… he never showed up. And while they can’t go back in time and right that wrong, granddaughter-in-law and event planner Lauren Wells recently made sure that they would have a photo album worth envying. Together with her friends — Boston-based photographer Cambria Grace and Caroline O’Donnell from Wild Folk Studio — the trio put together a 61st anniversary photo shoot inspired by the Pixar movie ‘Up!.’...

Olympus Stands to Post a Profit in 2014 as Mirrorless Sales Climb

Olympus Stands to Post a Profit in 2014 as Mirrorless Sales Climb Olympus’ decision to put all its chips on the mirrorless market seems to be paying off, with the once-troubled company finally poised to register a profit next year after several quarters of losses. The company expects to sell a million mirrorless models in the next fiscal year, which begins April 1, compared with the 660,000 units that were sold this year. The increase will help push Olympus to estimated operating profit of $ 68 million. CEO Hiroyuki Sasa told Bloomberg that Olympus has a built-in advantage in the mirrorless market. “Ours are lighter, smaller and made with...

Most Powerful Photos of the Year 2013 from Reuters Photojournalists

Most Powerful Photos of the Year 2013 from Reuters Photojournalists As 2013 draws to a close, we reflect back on the high points (and low points) experienced in the past year. Many people look back on the year by reviewing the top news stories, Google searches, and top videos, but we are revisiting the events of 2013 in photos. From Miley twerking at the VMAs to the riots in Cairo, Reuters compiled the most extraordinary images from their photographers across the globe: Some photos capture news events that made headlines worldwide, such as the death of Nelson Mandela. This photo captures 24-year-old Nelson Tavares working on a commemorative mural in Lisbon,...

10 Sources of Inspiration For Your Photography

10 Sources of Inspiration For Your Photography Every one of us needs to be inspired to shoot photos at some time in our photographic journeys. Sometimes inspiration comes naturally while on other occasions it is just like writer’s block. So how can you get inspired? Can you create inspiration or must you just wait? Let’s take a look at some sources of inspiration. Before we look at the sources of inspiration you need to understand that inspiration can be created if you don’t take the time and allow it to develop. The idea of shooting away until something happens just doesn’t work. You have to create the...

The Camera Store Shares Its Picks for Best and Worst Cameras and Lenses of 2013

The Camera Store Shares Its Picks for Best and Worst Cameras and Lenses of 2013 Everybody is coming out with their editor’s choices and best of’s and holiday gift guides, but The Camera Store added another facet to their “best of 2013″… the “worst of 2013.” From lenses, to still cameras to video cameras, take a gander at what was really good and, inevitably more entertaining, what was really bad. The “best of” choices are hard to argue with. At the top of the “best of” list for lenses was the exceptional Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8, Sony’s F5 and F55 topped the video cameras list, and (no surprise here) the...

Photographer Called Out by PhotoStealers Threatens Defamation Lawsuit

Photographer Called Out by PhotoStealers Threatens Defamation Lawsuit Many of you are familiar with the website PhotoStealers, which acts as “a wall of shame… dedicated to photographers that feel that it’s okay to steal others work and post it as their own.” Photo theft is expertly weeded out and exposed by the site’s creator, who has taken on some big names including Jasmine Star and Doug Gordon. The most recent PhotoStealers post, however, might reach even more epic proportions than the Star/Gordon shame-fest. It involves one Christopher Jones of CJ Photography and, before long, might involve a defamation lawsuit as well. The...

Snapchat Update Includes Ability to Replay Snaps, Add Filters and More

Snapchat Update Includes Ability to Replay Snaps, Add Filters and More Snapchat, famous for dealing with the problem of rising attention spans by whittling the life of a photo down to 10 seconds, has gotten a little more time-friendly with an update that includes a limited option for re-viewing images later. Version 6.1, pushed out a few days ago, includes a “replay” option buried within the “additional services” menu. Activate the as-yet undocumented feature and you can replay a photo or video beyond the 10-second expiration date, in case you missed something cool. You’re limited to one replay per day, however, so...

Biking Around London Taking Timelapse Photography

Biking Around London Taking Timelapse Photography Another shining example of timelapse photography has recently been released, this time from a photographer who spent eight days cycling around London with the sole intent of capturing photographs to compile the timelapse video, Restless Nights, which you can enjoy below. Hoping to capture the “hustle and bustle” spirit of London, Paul Richardson had to adapt to create his work of art when the London weather decided to be less than cooperative. Have a look at what he was able to accomplish: Shot with his Canon 6D, which was outfitted with either a 17-40mm f4, 50mm 1.8, or a...
