Pentax ‘Anti-Commercial’ Doesn’t Show the Camera Once, Is Incredibly Compelling

Pentax ‘Anti-Commercial’ Doesn’t Show the Camera Once, Is Incredibly Compelling If you’re commissioned to make an ad for a major camera company, might we make a small suggestion? Don’t show any cameras. It might seem like a stupid idea on the surface, but when you consider the effectiveness of the Canon ad we shared a couple of weeks ago and this Pentax ad we’re sharing today, you might just agree with us. The ad above, dubbed ABROAD, was shot back in 2012 by filmmakers John Lynch (the gentleman you see throughout the film) and Darrin Roberts (who did the editing). Its creators have called it an “anti-commercial,” and it’s the perfect...

3 Reasons to Use Old Camera Lenses

3 Reasons to Use Old Camera Lenses I know it. You know it. Everyone knows it. Technology moves fast–almost frustratingly fast. Everyone also has that one story about their new and ludicrously expensive computer, TV, or camera, only to find out that within six months it isn’t all that new or expensive. We can’t all keep up with the rat race. In fact, you shouldn’t keep up with the rat race. I will give you three reasons why investing in old lenses is not only a great idea, but also a fun one: “Canon FX” captured by William Warby 1. People want to talk about ‘em. This may sound a...

Video Shows Off Awesome Franken-Kodak DSLR Aboard 1991 Space Shuttle

Video Shows Off Awesome Franken-Kodak DSLR Aboard 1991 Space Shuttle It’s #throwbackthursday, right? Good, because we have a rather interesting piece of photography history to share with you, courtesy of NASA, Nikon and Kodak. Believe it or not, there was a point in time when Kodak was the front-runner in the digital photography world (crazy, we know…), and it all started with a little help from NASA back in 1991. Called the Kodak Hawkeye II, this Franken-camera was made up of a Kodak-built 1.3-megapixel CCD sensor — and accompanying wiring — attached to the back of a Nikon F3 body. This setup turned an otherwise analogue beast into...

How I Shot the Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse Rising Over a Flowery Field

How I Shot the Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse Rising Over a Flowery Field Over the past few years, I’ve become overly obsessed with photographing the night sky, so when I saw that we were going to be able to see the lunar eclipse on April 15, I knew I had to shoot it. I had been planning this shot for about two weeks before Tuesday morning. With every lunar eclipse that occurs, my social media feeds blow up with shots of the moon, but they all seem to be extremely tight compositions. Don’t get me wrong, they are great shots for detail, but I’ve always felt they lacked a bit of… “life.” With that said, I knew that I wanted to create a composition...

Can You Photograph Sound? An Introduction to Schlieren Flow Visualization

Can You Photograph Sound? An Introduction to Schlieren Flow Visualization Ever wonder what sound looks like? To many, that may sound impossible, but thanks to the science behind the Schlieren Flow Visualization it’s possible to photograph the movement of sound waves. These sound waves–not to be confused with the computer generated graphics we are all familiar with, travel at a speed of 761 mph—the speed of sound. Take a look at the video below for a detailed explanation: Here is a graphic that depicts how we are able to photograph movement in the airwaves, thus creating sound waves, by using a a series of objects to reflect and divert the waves...

Video: Sports Illustrated’s ‘Boston Strong’ Cover Shoot with Greg Heisler Two days ago was the anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombings, and in true Boston spirit, the city came out in force to show that this tragedy had not stolen, but rather strengthened its spirit.

The video above shows you how the shoot went down, and you can see the final SI cover below: Runners from that day, first responders and even...

National Geographic Editor Pamela Chen Shares Her Journey Into Photography

In the short video above Senior National Geographic Editor Pamela Chen gives us a quick run-through of what inspired her photo career.

Note: the short video is sponsored by Microsoft OneDrive, so it does come across as a bit of a commercial, but in no way does that detract from her story. Give it a watch and get some...

Simplify Your iOS Photo Management with Tidy

Simplify Your iOS Photo Management with Tidy When it comes to iOS as a whole, there’s one aspect the operating system that frustrates me more than any other: photo management. As I’m sure many can empathize with, my Camera Roll is filled with a collection of images from varying sources, with minimal methods of automated separation. Screenshots, photographs, saved images and anything else all wind up in one place where, for the most part, they’re either stuck on your device and/or uploaded to your Photo Stream. Thus, when it comes time to offload and archive the images on your device, it’s nothing short or a...
