Graffiti Artist Sues Production Companies for $45K for Using His Tag in Their Show and Promo Materials

Graffiti Artist Sues Production Companies for $45K for Using His Tag in Their Show and Promo Materials The next time you want to photograph some cool graffiti, you might want to think twice… you could get sued by the artist if that picture makes it big. After the popular Canadian drama 30 Vies aired, graffiti artist Alexandre Veilleux recognized a tag of his in the opening sequence. Now, Veilleux — who goes by Alex Scaner in the graffiti community — is seeking $ 45k in damages from Radio-Canada and Productions Aetios Inc., stating they used his work without permission. “The plaintiff is the author of a tag, an artistic work painted in 2010 on a building located on...

Canon’s 7D Successor to Contain ‘a Lot of 1D X’ in it, Coming Early September

Canon’s 7D Successor to Contain ‘a Lot of 1D X’ in it, Coming Early September As the rumor mills continue to churn out their dose of information, more and more information on Canon’s successor to the 7D is coming to light. Earlier rumors have pointed to a brand new, “revolutionary” sensor being in this impending beast, but new rumors have pointed out even more exciting use for those holding out, specifically, that the 7D replacement is going to have “a lot of 1D X” in it. What does “a lot of 1D X” mean? That’s still up for debate, but the reports here seem to be fairly solid. The announcement is said to be made on September 4th or 5th, pending your...

Lens Rentals Canada Suspends Service Due to Alleged Thefts by Canada Post Employee

Lens Rentals Canada Suspends Service Due to Alleged Thefts by Canada Post Employee Well, this is awkward. From the looks of it, Lens Rentals Canada is suspending services due to the theft of their equipment while in transit. Details are scarce, but while it seems as though current reservations will still be sent out and returned, new reservations will not be accepted. Specifically, their website reads: Due to serious issues with the Canada Post Corporation, we are currently not taking any new orders. We do not have an ETA as to when we will be accepting new orders […] Current reservations will be shipped via Purolator Courier. While Purolator is majority owned by Canada...

A Cautionary Tale: How a Bug in Dropbox Permanently Deleted 8,000 of My Photos

A Cautionary Tale: How a Bug in Dropbox Permanently Deleted 8,000 of My Photos TL;DR: If you are using Dropbox as a sole backup of your files, think again. Without making a mistake, you might lose your files. I started using Dropbox back in 2009 and have always loved the service. Over time, I kept moving more and more files to my Dropbox folder and eventually had to upgrade to the Pro plan to keep up with the space requirements. In particular, I moved there all of my photos in order to be able to view/share them online and also to have them backed up. In April of this year, a hard drive in my laptop was running low on space so I decided to use the Dropbox’s Selective...

Composition Guidelines for Great Photography

Composition Guidelines for Great Photography It’s often been said that photography is one of the most difficult and demanding pastimes to master, but many people relate that to learning more about the technical aspects of photography and light. There is much more to photography than just getting the exposure right, and it’s about composing your shots to give the viewer a better visual experience. It’s about turning a simple photograph into an artistic statement or telling a story in pictures. It’s about grabbing the attention of the viewer and taking them on a journey through the frame. “Storm over Grand...

Sony a7S Astrophotography Review

Sony a7S Astrophotography Review As soon as the Sony a7S was announced, I knew I had to try it for astrophotography. With a full frame sensor and ISO 409600, is it the best low light camera out there? Introduction The Sony a7S is the third variation of the full-frame mirrorless a7 series of cameras that Sony has recently released. First Sony released the 24.3 megapixel a7 and 36.4 megapixel a7R, the first mirrorless cameras with full-frame 24mm x 36mm sensors. The recently released a7S seems like sort of the oddball of the three a7 variations: It has only a 12.2 megapixel sensor and at the time of this writing, it costs...

In this video, Chelsea Northrup aims to educate beginner photographers on the aesthetics of using spot color: There are really three things to know about using spot color: why, how and when. Why Use Spot Color? Really, the...
