Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II Will be Tuned for Sports Photography, Report

Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II Will be Tuned for Sports Photography, Report It’s been nearly three years since Olympus debuted the popular OM-D E-M1 to the world in September of 2013, but those hoping for a replacement may not have to wait much longer. According to fresh reports, the E-M1 Mark II is set to debut at Photokina touting better sports photo capability. According to 43 Rumors, the news was posted by Rob from MU-43. Rob, who had visited the London Camera Exchange Show, spoke to an Olympus rep who revealed (or at the very least hinted strongly at) what we might expect from the OM-D E-M1 Mark II. First off, the rep told Rob that “the EM1 Mk2 is...

Mesmerizing Cinemagraphs Made from Photos Captured from the ISS

Mesmerizing Cinemagraphs Made from Photos Captured from the ISS We’ve seen people do some cool things using NASA’s beautiful images of Earth captured from the International Space Station (ISS). But Armand Dijcks’ 4K space cinemagraphs might just take the zen-like cake. Created using Flixel and images captured by the crew of the International Space Station, Dijcks cinemagraphs offer a peaceful, mesmerizing way to immerse yourself in the kind of view NASA astronauts up there get day in and day out. Dijcks has created time-lapse sequences from ISS images before, so he was already familiar with the challenges he was going to face....

How to Capture and Edit a Day to Night Timelapse With a DSLR

How to Capture and Edit a Day to Night Timelapse With a DSLR Timelapses of sunsets are wonderful to watch, but they require an understanding technique and a whole lot of patience. Photographer Cal Thomson explains quite lucidly what it takes to produce a day to night timelapse: Manual Exposure There are two basic ways to capture images for this type of timelapse: manual mode and aperture priority mode. With the manual mode you can control everything and there is no room for introducing a visual jerk in the timelapse. White balance needs to be set on auto, since it will change over the course of the shoot as the light changes. Thomson uses the...

How to Use Motion Blur in Timelapse Photography

How to Use Motion Blur in Timelapse Photography When you change the shutter speed in a timelapse, you can control how people moving in and out of the frame transition. With faster shutter speeds the movements are more jagged; you can make out each individual. With longer shutter speeds, the movements are a lot smoother. In this video Jay P Morgan from The Slanted Lens gives a nice demonstration on the impact of changing shutter speed in timelapses: There are four elements that impact a timelapse: ISO shutter speed aperture interval For this demonstration Morgan just manipulates one of the four: shutter speed. 4 Elements That Impact...

Facebook Working on Its Own Camera App to Win Back Users, Report

Facebook Working on Its Own Camera App to Win Back Users, Report Facebook’s engagement numbers have been slipping, and a new report from the Wall Street Journal points to one way the social media behemoth intends to try and win back users who are sharing less and less through the platform: a stand-alone camera app. The report cites “people familiar with the matter” who claim that Facebook’s “friend-sharing” team has developed an early-stage camera application that’s a bit like Snapchat and Periscope put together. Like Snapchat, it opens directly onto a camera (instead of a feed, like Instagram) although...

Lean Photography: Cutting the ‘Fat’ Out of Your Creative Life

Lean Photography: Cutting the ‘Fat’ Out of Your Creative Life To me, creativity is all about cross-pollination of ideas in novel ways. Idea sex I don’t believe that there are any truly “original” ideas anymore. Rather, we take different ideas and let them have “idea sex”—which leads to a totally new idea. This idea is a hybrid between the two ideas prior. I’ve been really into this “lean” concept that runs pervasive in technology circles here in the Bay Area. The concept goes back to the Japanese Toyota philosophy of “lean manufacturing”—where they try to reduce or subtract superfluous processes, and by subtracting the...

Behind the Scenes: Erasing Everone in Paris with Photoshop

Behind the Scenes: Erasing Everone in Paris with Photoshop Ever since his video Alone in Paris got massively popular, people have been asking photographer and filmmaker Mathieu Stern to share some behind the scenes tidbits. Today, he obliged those requests. The video below is made up of deleted scenes and behind the scenes sequences that show just how many people, cars, and other distracting elements Stern had to remove to create the illusion that his subject was truly alone. There were many challenges, both technical and practical. The actress had to be in an empty spot, work her choreography perfectly without reacting to the people around her, and...
