Interesting Photo of the Day: Blue Whales Breaching (Plus Shocking Video)

Interesting Photo of the Day: Blue Whales Breaching (Plus Shocking Video) It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a … whale? This humpback whale calf takes breaching to a whole new level. Completely clearing the water, it appears to fly in the air, fins spread out. Adult humpback whales weigh about 80,000 pounds (36,000 kg) and measure an average of 39 to 52 feet in length (12-16 metres), and even calves weigh two tons and are 20 feet at birth, so that’s a pretty powerful animal. Humpback whale breaching (via imgur) Captured by Matthew Thornton, this photo was a 2012 National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest entry. It was taken off the...

Lenticular Clouds Timelapse Photography

Lenticular Clouds Timelapse Photography Most photographers shoot still photographs to capture precise moments in time. Timelapse photographers take hundreds or thousands of images at fixed intervals to portray the passage of time. The images are played back consecutively to condense hours into minutes or seconds. New Zealander Bevan Percival records surreal timelapse photography sequences in beautiful landscapes. Watch his timelapse of lenticular clouds in the Rangipo Desert on the North Island Volcanic Plateau: Percival used a Canon 5D Mark II and a Dynamic Perception Stage Zero Dolly to shoot this video. Though you may not see...

How to Get Bookings Off a Bridal Show

How to Get Bookings Off a Bridal Show When Susie and I examined our options for jump-starting a wedding photography business, there really wasn’t a lot of help out there.  All the available advice was about leveraging the clients you already had … which didn’t apply, because we didn’t even have any leads.  The only option we saw for getting clients quickly was a bridal show.  We didn’t relish the work or expense involved, but we can honestly say that it would have taken far, far longer to start our business without these shows. We attended two bridal shows and booked 8 weddings off those shows at the prices that we...

Photographer Gets a Second Change at Life, Embarks on a 100 Portrait Journey

Photographer Gets a Second Change at Life, Embarks on a 100 Portrait Journey In 2011, photographer Giles Duley stepped on a land mine while working in Afghanistan. Originally a celebrity portrait photographer who had been turned off to celebrity culture by the people he was photographing, he had always hoped to return to portraiture. That’s why, during his 46-day fight for his life in intensive care, it was to portraiture that his mind turned, and a project took shape. The days in intensive care consisted of a horrific mix of “morphine, exhaustion and fear,” but Duley decided that if he made it out of there alive, he would take the 100 portraits he...

CNET Doubts Sony ‘Lens Cam’ Rumors, Original Source Says ‘Wanna Bet?’

CNET Doubts Sony ‘Lens Cam’ Rumors, Original Source Says ‘Wanna Bet?’ You don’t get a lot of “scuffles” between tech and rumor sites, but a recent CNET Rumor Has It episode poked fun at a report by sonyalpharumors, and the rumor site has decided to respond in good fun. The rumor in question is the exciting Sony “Lens Camera” from earlier this month. In case you haven’t read our previous coverage, the story goes something like this: Sony is working on a smartphone-attachable lens complete with its own powerful image sensor, battery and memory. Basically, it’ll turn your smartphone into an interchangeable lens...

Sun and Lighting for Architectural Photography

Sun and Lighting for Architectural Photography In photography, as well as in any other visual art form, light plays a key role, and it should be considered a critical compositional element. Lighting for architectural photography, as well as for interior photography, can be very demanding, because the light defines the space or structure of the building. Lighting for interiors is much more controllable than for exteriors; however, in both situations the architectural photographer must be able to “take control”–even when dealing with the sun. Working as a Chicago architectural photographer for over 30 years, I have learned...

Canon Lenses for Wedding Photography

Canon Lenses for Wedding Photography In order to be competitive, wedding photographers must consistently produce images that reflect their unique style. New York-based wedding photographer Christian Oth‘s fashion forward style is decidedly editorial and relaxed. His work has been featured in a wide array of publications, including Martha Stewart, Brides, and New York Time Magazine. Here, Canon Digital Learning Center features Oth and his use of telephoto lenses to create his elegant look: Because a photojournalist approach requires capturing candid action shots and intimate moments, Oth relies on long, fast lenses that...

Shuttle Launch Captured in Amazing High Def by Cameras on the Rocket Boosters

Shuttle Launch Captured in Amazing High Def by Cameras on the Rocket Boosters When the Space Shuttle Atlantis launched on June 8th, 2011 it marked the end of NASA’s Space Shuttle Program. The video above harkens back to that not-so-long-ago era of space shuttles, and gives us an incredible view of a shuttle launch the likes of which we’ve not had the opportunity to share before. The clip is an extra that will appear on the special edition DVD/Blu-ray of the documentary Ascent: Commemorating Shuttle. Although we’ve shared some spectacular launch videos and photographs in the past, this one takes the cake. It gives us a high-definition ride on a rocket...

Concert Photography Tips from a Nikon Pro

Concert Photography Tips from a Nikon Pro Where visual and audial obsessions overlap, you’ll probably find the concert photographer. This is an extremely exciting type of photography, with all the excitement and action of sports, the intimate close-up nature of portraiture, and the wild colours usually only found in a sunset. Nikon recently released this interview with concert photographer Lindsey Byrnes, in which she discusses her methods, her development, and of course, her favourite equipment (note: turn up your volume, the sound is a little low): The life of a music photographer grows very organically; first you’re a...
