Use the Inverse-Square Law to Improve Your Light Painting

Use the Inverse-Square Law to Improve Your Light Painting Light painting is a bit of an obscure art–it involves sitting in a completely dark room, setting your camera to a long exposure, and painting light onto the image with delicate wrist strokes of an LED light. (This article gives an excellent overview.) In the video below, we’re shown an intermediate-level rule of light painting that uses something called the “inverse-square law”: The inverse-square law dictates that “light falls off by the square of the distance.” Simply put, for light painting purposes, if you move your light twice as far from the object,...

Camera Plus AirSnap: Use One iOS Device to Remote Trigger Another

In the latest update for Camera Plus (not to be confused with the more popular Camera+), the development team has implemented a new feature called AirSnap. What AirSnap does is allow you to turn your iOS device into a remote control for another iOS device. Using either Bluetooth or WiFi, you set one iOS device up to be the camera and the other to be the trigger. In doing so, the remote iOS device is capable of changing the settings and seeing exactly as the camera iOS device is. It will likely be nothing more than a novelty for most, but it’s a unique ability nonetheless — remote...

Giacomo Brunelli’s Striking Black & White Animal Street Photography

Giacomo Brunelli’s Striking Black & White Animal Street Photography Street photography is usually reserved for humans, while animals are typically photographed out in nature, but Giacomo Brunelli‘s series The Animals and The Animals II turn that dynamic on its head. The photographs in these two series bring the stark, black-and-white and often invasive nature of classic street photography into to the animal kingdom with fascinating results. The idea for The Animals took shape almost as soon as Brunelli picked up his first camera. Already in college, he stumbled across one of his father’s old film cameras in a drawer and found himself in need of...

Gutsy Teen Climbs One World Trade Center to Snap Photos

Gutsy Teen Climbs One World Trade Center to Snap Photos Call him a daredevil, call him a criminal: a 16-year-old boy just broke into One World Trade Center, a skyscraper touted by some as “the number-one target for terrorism in the entire planet,” just to snap a few quick pictures and climb back down. He was promptly arrested. Go figure. Watch the full news report here: The stuntman in question is Justin Casquejo, a high school student from Weehawken, New Jersey. He’s been charged with a misdemeanor of trespassing, though there’s an argument to be made that the port authority and police should be thanking the kid for...

Photographer Ryan Muirhead Talks Depression, Creativity, and What It Means to Be Human

Photographer Ryan Muirhead Talks Depression, Creativity, and What It Means to Be Human Ryan Muirhead by B3njamin Photography There’s no way of knowing when you’ll wake up in life, or if you ever will. Only after getting down the track a ways do you realize you were in fact asleep when you thought you had things figured out. And this thought scares the shit out of you. Because those times when you were certain, it turns out you knew nothing. So what does that say about what you think you know right now? Your stomach turns, the world shifts a bit, and you stand at the vertiginous edge: you’re presented with the opportunity to discover who you really are. You...

A BTS Look at the Russian Daredevils Who Take Selfies While Dangling Off Buildings

A BTS Look at the Russian Daredevils Who Take Selfies While Dangling Off Buildings When Kirill Oreshkin first started capturing photographs from the tops of the tallest buildings in Russia, he was afraid of heights. As the video above goes to show, that fear is long gone… in fact, these days he has no problem hanging off the top of a building with only one hand. In this nausuea-inducing video put together last week by Vocativ, Oreshkin says this all started because he liked the views of the city and enjoyed the people he got to spend time with while he was doing it. I’d say it’s come a long way since then, but the point is still the same to him: to...

BTS: Music Video Shot Using a Drone with 8 GoPros Attached for ‘Little Planet’ Effect

We’ve seen how impressive footage shot with a drone and just one GoPro can be, but that’s child’s play compared to the band Booka Shade’s most recent music video shoot. Employing the services of the drone cinematographers at Octofilms, they slapped 8 GoPros onto a drone to capture some psychedelic ‘Little Planet’ style imagery. The four minute music video that resulted from what looks to have been a whole lot of work is different from just about any other drone footage we’ve yet seen. A trip of a music video that switches between normal style footage...

Anti-Piracy Group Accused of Stealing the Photo They Used in an Anti-Piracy Ad

Anti-Piracy Group Accused of Stealing the Photo They Used in an Anti-Piracy Ad Well this is awkward… We’re all for people advocating for copyright law and making sure that people at least understand that it’s bad to steal other people’s intellectual property, but if you’re going to do it, you might want to follow your own rules. Case in point: Anti-piracy group The Business Software Alliance was called out this weekend for allegedly using a stolen photo in an anti-piracy ad that encouraged people to turn in unlicensed software users. The ad in question (which you can see above) reads: “Your pot of gold is right here baby. Report...

Developing Your Eye for Photography

Developing Your Eye for Photography Although there is much pleasure to be derived from taking a technically excellent photograph, there is a strong argument that a truly great shot depends most on your eye. Look at the photographs you see every day in magazines, the press, or on display in a gallery. The shots you really take note of are the unexpected–the ones that catch a moment that could have been unnoticed and missed forever. “Ruin” captured by Linus (Click image to see more from Linus.) So for most beginning–but serious–photographers, you need to work at developing your eye. Most of...
