This Time-Lapse Shows the Passing of a Day on Earth From 22,000 Miles Away

This Time-Lapse Shows the Passing of a Day on Earth From 22,000 Miles Away Since late 2014, Japan’s Himawari 8 weather satellite has been in stationary orbit above New Guinea, 22,000 miles out (Earth’s average diameter is 7,918 miles). It shoots one photo of Earth every 10 minutes, capturing 144 pictures of our planet over the course of a day. When combined, the photos form a gorgeous time-lapse video showing the passing of a day on Earth. In the 20-second video above, the Sun’s reflection can be seen in the daylight that moves across the surface of the globe. Australia is visible through a gap in the clouds at the bottom of the frame, and above...

Corporate Stock Photos in Real Life

Corporate Stock Photos in Real Life It’s a common joke nowadays that you can find stock photos with just about any situation you can think of—and it’s funny, until you need an extremely ridiculous image and actually find it on a stock photo site. The video below from Nacho Punch shows how it would look if an ordinary office was suddenly filled with stock photo scenarios: You have all your standard office stock photo subjects: the guys laughing around the water cooler, the excessively happy guy on the phone, the team doing the superhero stance… not many of the standard stock photo characters are left out...

Look for Leading Lines When Shooting Street Photos

Look for Leading Lines When Shooting Street Photos Early on in my street photography career, I went on YouTube and searched for some inspiration on other street photographers. I came across the work and approach of Bruce Gilden, who absolutely blew me away. He would photograph people at very close proximities (about an arm’s-length away), while shooting with a flash on a 28mm lens. A lot of people called him an a**hole, but I personally found his work to be inspirational. I loved how raw, intense, and intimate his images were. Not only that, but his photos were also well-composed. I then thought to myself, “How can I create...

Photo Composition Tips

Photo Composition Tips One aspect of photography that photographers constantly strive to improve is composition. It’s one of those things that you spend your entire photographic career working on. There are many considerations to be made on what to include in the frame and—equally important—what to leave out, and it can sometimes be a little overwhelming trying to get the hang of it. There are, however, some simple rules that we can follow to help compose stronger, more interesting images. “Northern Peloponnese” captured by Giovanni C. Horizon The position of the horizon can have a...

Idea: Shoot an In-Camera Triangle Triple Exposure

Idea: Shoot an In-Camera Triangle Triple Exposure Photographer Hayden Williams made this abstract photo by shooting a triple exposure with his Canon AE-1 and FD 50mm f/1.8 lens. It’s an idea you can do entirely in-camera. “Whenever I’m down to my last few shots on a roll, I usually take crazy experimental multiple exposures,” Williams writes. He’s had ideas for triple exposures for a while now, and he finally decided to try it out on a street in Hong Kong. “First, to adjust for the three exposures, I tripled the ASA speed to 300 on my camera,” he tells PetaPixel. He was shooting with Kodak Ektar 100...

1970s Olympus Trip 35 Commercials Starring British Photographer David Bailey

1970s Olympus Trip 35 Commercials Starring British Photographer David Bailey Back in the 1970s, Olympus launched an advertising campaign for its Trip 35 35mm compact camera that featured renowned British photographer David Bailey. The 46-second commercial above is one of the ads that was aired: it depicted the popular racing driver James Hunt being confused for Bailey because of the Trip 35 he was shooting with. Another ad in the campaign featured Bailey showing up an “old school” wedding photographer with his automatic compact camera: The campaign was a success: between the Trip 35’s introduction in 1967 and discontinuation in 1984, over 10...
