It’s Done: Verizon Now Owns Flickr via $4.48B Yahoo Acqusition

It’s Done: Verizon Now Owns Flickr via $4.48B Yahoo Acqusition In a long anticipated move, Verizon has now confirmed its acquisition of Flickr and other Yahoo assets in a massive $ 4.48 billion deal. Rumors started back in 2015 that Flickr was for sale, and now the day has come that this is a reality for its users. The deal was originally reported to be worth $ 4.8 billion, but Verizon lowered its bid since the announcement of a series of hacks on the Yahoo service. In fact, Verizon seems to have got a bit of a bargain. Perhaps Yahoo was keen to rid itself of responsible, with a recent high turnover of CEOs and instability in its direction. With AOL...

Here’s How One Photographer Cured His Sony a9 Overheating Bug

Here’s How One Photographer Cured His Sony a9 Overheating Bug After the highly anticipated Sony a9 began landing in the hands of photographers, there were some reports of the camera displaying its overheating indicator icon after short periods of use in ordinary environments. Israeli photographer Senya Alman came up with a clever way of keeping his own a9 cool: he built it a little hot shoe cover for portable shade. DIYPhotography reports that Alman’s makeshift solution consists of a cold shoe adapter, a swivel, and a piece of foam board. The shade was enough to keep the camera from ever displaying the overheating indicator during his outdoor...

A Look At Photoshop’s Luminosity and Color Blend Modes

A Look At Photoshop’s Luminosity and Color Blend Modes Blend Modes in Photoshop are simple at a glance, but it’s easy to forget exactly how each of the 27 modes work. This 10-minute video from Blake Rudis of f64 Academy goes in to detail on Luminosity and Color, which are both very useful for photo editing. At some point, we’ve all been guilty of just cycling through blend modes in Photoshop to find the right effect. While it’s an effective strategy, it will dramatically improve your workflow to better understand what the blend modes do and when to use them. This is how Adobe describes the Color and Luminosity blend modes, which are...

Apple Adds Advanced Editing Features to Photos App in macOS High Sierra

Apple Adds Advanced Editing Features to Photos App in macOS High Sierra Alongside a bunch of hardware announcements—new iMacs, the iMac Pro, and a new iPad Pro—Apple also took some time at the WWDC to announce a new macOS: High Sierra. Jokes about this “fully baked” operating system aside, the new OS adds some intriguing “pro-level” editing features to the Photos app. Ever since the death of Aperture, the Apple faithful have been waiting (and waiting… and waiting) for the Photos app to “catch” up. Many people have given up, but with the release of the so-called macOS High Sierra, Apple is finally giving the Photos...

Trying Out a Set of $560 Zeiss iPhone Lenses

Trying Out a Set of $560 Zeiss iPhone Lenses Shelling out $ 560 to buy three lenses for your iPhone might seem a bit extreme, but is it worth it? Do you get more optical performance out of your smartphone if you put Zeiss glass in front of that tiny sensor? Kai gave it a go. For this vlog, Kai wandered around Cambridge with two different sets of lenses: the ultra-popular Zeiss EXO lenses (price: $ 560) and a set of three iAiLun “LP-3006” clip-on lenses (price: ~$ 6). After messing around a bit and trying out all three lenses—wide angle, standard, macro—the results were clear: the Zeiss EXO lenses are much better...

Samyang Unveils Tiny, Affordable 35mm f/2.8 Autofocus Lens for Sony

Samyang Unveils Tiny, Affordable 35mm f/2.8 Autofocus Lens for Sony Samyang has revealed their third autofocus lens. The so-called ‘tiny but mighty’ 35mm f/2.8 FE was announced last night, and today it’s instilling at least a bit of fear into Zeiss with its ultra-portable size and ultra-affordable price tag. As the “FE” suggests, the 35mm f/2.8 FE was designed for Sony full-frame mirrorless cameras, joining the AF 14mm F2.8 FE and AF 50mm F1.4 FE lenses to bring Samyang’s autofocus lineup to three lenses. What’s more, the 35mm and 50mm lenses are both significantly more affordable than their Sony/Zeiss...

Hasselblad Takes $8,000 Off the Price of the H6D-50c, Now ‘Only’ 18 Grand

Hasselblad Takes $8,000 Off the Price of the H6D-50c, Now ‘Only’ 18 Grand If you’ve been holding out on purchasing a serious digital medium format camera, Hasselblad just gave you 8,000 new reasons to pull the trigger. As of today, the price of the flagship H6D-50c has been dropped from $ 26,000 to $ 18,000—a price drop of $ 8,000, or nearly 31%. The price drop was announced in a newsletter, and Hassy is describing it as a “special promotion.” However, as DPReview points out, previous “promotional” price drops like this one have actually been permanent. Even with the price drop, the 50MP CMOS sensor-toting medium format camera is...

I Held a Dog Headshot Photo Booth, and the Results Were Hilarious

I Held a Dog Headshot Photo Booth, and the Results Were Hilarious After the fantastic experience I had hosting my first Dog Photo Booth at Glens Falls Pet Fest in City Park, Glens Falls last year, I knew I had to return for the 2nd annual event. As simple as the concept may sound, hosting a photo booth (let alone one for dogs) involves a number of technicalities. Having never hosted a photo booth before, last year was a tremendous learning experience for me as a photographer. When the event ended, I shared my photographs online and they were viewed by hundreds of thousands of people — which was pretty cool. After the fact, I had photographers reach out...

Creating Surreal Photo-Manipulations That Distort Outdoor Spaces

Creating Surreal Photo-Manipulations That Distort Outdoor Spaces Photo artist Erik Johansson was commissioned by Clinea, a Swiss company leading in the field of psychiatry and psychotherapy, to create something a little different. Johansson shot the images in Prague and Austria this year, creating beautiful photo manipulations that capture the essence of such a company. An image of a couple painting color and life back into a grey, monochromatic room does well to symbolize the work Clinea performs in the psychiatric field. In another image, the couple is seen preparing to sail away from a dark, shattered, cold...
