Photos of Amsterdam Coffeehouses Developed with the Coffee They Sell

Photos of Amsterdam Coffeehouses Developed with the Coffee They Sell Over the years, we’ve posted a number of tutorials on how to develop film using coffee and vitamin C, which combine to create a photo process known as caffenol. The solution can be used to develop prints as well, and that’s what photographer Gijs van den Berg did for a recent project that documents coffeehouses in Amsterdam. After photographing each shop, Gijs printed the photos in his darkroom using caffenol created from that shop’s coffee. “In the past months I have been photographing the last standing traditional coffeehouses of Amsterdam,” Gijs tells...

CLERA is a Transparent Camera That Actually Works

CLERA is a Transparent Camera That Actually Works Photographer Anton Orlov has created what he believes is the world’s first camera that’s both completely transparent and fully functional.

Orlov first got the idea for this camera while working in a dark box with wet plate collodion photography. He noticed that the sunlight streaming in through the red windows didn’t cause any light fogging in the resulting tintype photo. “That’s when it struck me,” he writes on his blog....

Why Photoshop Sucks (Except It Doesn’t)

Why Photoshop Sucks (Except It Doesn’t) Popular YouTube filmmaker and VFX artist Freddie Wong released this video a couple of days ago that has a lot of people talking. It’s titled “Why CG Sucks (Except It Doesn’t).” Over the course of 7.5 minutes, Wong argues that computer generated visual effects often get a bad rap because it’s the bad CG that everyone notices — by definition, good CG is largely invisible to audiences. It seems that much of what he says and shows can be applied to photography and Photoshop retouching/manipulation as well (for certain areas of photography, at least… not...
