In Newborn Photography, Butt Explosions Are Par for the Course

In Newborn Photography, Butt Explosions Are Par for the Course Newborn baby photographers often capture the same elements in their shots: a nude baby sleeping serenely as their doting parents smile and gaze. What you don’t often see, however, are the many unexpected accidents that happen. And there’s one truth many baby photographers know very well: babies can’t stop the shoot to request a bathroom break. Photographer Gigi O’Dea was photographing a newborn recently when she the shoot was interrupted by a tiny “butt explosion.” The parents, Shayna and Mark Resnick, wanted a photo of Asher on Mark’s back to...

The One Thing Apple Understands is Photography

The One Thing Apple Understands is Photography Only a Luddite would still categorize Apple as a computer company. Indeed, the company officially changed its name in 2007, dropping “Computer” and simply settling for “Apple, Inc.” Still, most people probably think of Apple as the maker of the iPhone and iPad, and to a lesser extent as the company that makes MacBooks and iMacs. But let me suggest that Apple is the most important camera company today. Over a cup of coffee the other day, @jbchan told me, “The one thing that Apple understands is photography.” It took a few seconds to register in my brain, but it suddenly became...

DIY: An Ultraviolet Flash for Black Light Photography

DIY: An Ultraviolet Flash for Black Light Photography Back in May, a body painter offered to collaborate with me for a photo shoot with airbrushed models. This offer gave me a reason to finally experiment with black light photography, which I’ve wanted to try for years now. After searching the Web, I found that black light photography is a rather technically complicated process. The main obstacle of black light photography is the light source. Generally, there are two main options for UV lighting: ultraviolet constant lighting and ultraviolet strobe lighting. The problem with ultra violet constant lighting is low light output. For...

Interesting Photo of the Day: Hummingbird Swarm

Interesting Photo of the Day: Hummingbird Swarm They say patience is a virtue and patience really pays off when you have a hummingbird feeder.

This Aperture Engagement Ring Box is Perfect for the Photographer You Love

This Aperture Engagement Ring Box is Perfect for the Photographer You Love Love someone who loves photography, and planning to pop the question soon? Check out this homemade ring box Matt Chalker made for his photographer girlfriend recently. It opens and closes like the aperture on a camera, and it took about 50-60 hours to make. Here’s a short clip showing how the box works. You simply twist the “lens” to open up the aperture and reveal the ring: “I’m pretty handy and am the manager at a college makerspace, so I have access to a lot of fabrication tools,” Chalker tells PetaPixel. He brainstormed ideas for a few weeks before...
