A Funny Video Editing Parody that Photographers Will Totally Relate To

A Funny Video Editing Parody that Photographers Will Totally Relate To The creative process can be a painful one, but once in a while it’s a good idea to laugh at our pain and remember that you’re not alone. To that end, this humorous video by the folks at Lixi Studios is bound to elicit a chuckle… and perhaps a groan. The video is titled “How To Edit A Video In SEVEN EASY Steps!! (Regret may vary..)” and while it’s targeted at videographers and video editors, any photographer who has spent days in front of Lightroom and Photoshop (followed by long, angst-ridden walks on the beach) will totally relate. And don’t worry,...

Capturing Fire Dancers Under the Milky Way, on a Deserted Island

Capturing Fire Dancers Under the Milky Way, on a Deserted Island At the beginning of this year, I started the photography trip of a lifetime, planning to travel to all 7 continents in a single trip. Currently I’m at Siargao in the Philippines, a paradise location surrounded by beautiful white sand islands. Photographing the milky way is one of the highlights of my travels, as we barely get to do that back home in The Netherlands thanks to all the light pollution. Recently there was a performance at Viento del Mar with 2 fire dancers. Instantly, I thought of doing some long exposure experimenting with the dancers, trying out 3 to 10 second exposures with...

Facebook Repeatedly Censors Viral Father/Son Photo, Causes Uproar

Facebook Repeatedly Censors Viral Father/Son Photo, Causes Uproar A photo of a father cradling his sick son in the shower has taken the Internet by storm despite, or perhaps because of, repeated takedowns by social media giant Facebook. The image was captured by photographer Heather Whitten back in November of 2014, and shows her husband cradling their then-one-year-old son Fox who was suffering from salmonella poisoning at the time. “Thomas had spent hours in the shower with him, trying to keep his fever down and letting the vomit and diarrhea rinse off of them both as it came,” she wrote in a Facebook post that has, yet again, been taken...

Cheap, Light, and Slim: Shooting Macro with a Pancake Lens

Cheap, Light, and Slim: Shooting Macro with a Pancake Lens A few weeks ago, I traveled to the Central Valley of Costa Rica for a professional development opportunity through work. While my week in Central America was focused on improving leadership skills and cultural intelligence, I was stoked for the little free time I had for dedicated bug photography. Packing light as a photographer who wants to be prepared for every possible photographic scenario is tough. I purchased a large camera backpack specifically for this trip and anticipated bringing a variety of lenses and macro equipment including one of two macro lenses (Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 macro...

Minimal Photos of Iconic Computers Throughout History

Minimal Photos of Iconic Computers Throughout History Photographer James Ball (AKA. Docubyte) recently teamed up with digital retouching house INK to create some beautiful, minimalist images of 10 iconic computers throughout history. We’re talking historic machines like the IBM 1401 and Alan Turing’s Pilot ACE, highlighted for the beautiful technology they are. The series is called Guide to Computing, but you could be forgiven for calling it vintage tech porn. The colorful series offers “a fresh take on the classic vintage design of ten historic computers” captured by Ball at the The National Museum of Computing. Since many...

Nikon D5 Pro Review: The Batman of the Camera World

Nikon D5 Pro Review: The Batman of the Camera World Powerful, insanely fast, supremely agile, hauntingly accurate and a master of the dark. The Batman of the camera world. I could end the review there, but what fun would that be? Introduction As with my Nikon D750 Review, this Nikon D5 review is founded upon real world usage in a professional shooting environment. You will not find specification comparisons, tests at each ISO or in depth technical breakdowns. While I am a technical geek at heart, the only thing that matters to me when I’m shooting is the ability of the camera. The Nikon D5 isn’t available in the UK yet, Nikon...

The First Leaked Photo of the iPhone 7 Plus with Dual Cameras? The iPhone 7 has long been rumored to be the first iPhone to feature a dual rear cameras, following in the footsteps of phones such as the new Huawei P9, which has dual cameras engineered by Leica. And like with the P9, purported photos of the dual cameras have now leaked ahead of any official announcement. The photo was first shared by the Chinese website Bastille Post.
