Police Erect Barriers to Prevent Selfies at the Remains of Grenfell Tower

Much the dismay of residents of the area, the site became a popular destination for selfies shared...

How to Sharpen Your Photos in Lightroom Without Going Too Far

How to Sharpen Your Photos in Lightroom Without Going Too Far Sharpening gives your images a bit of pop by increasing the edge contrast, but it’s easy to go too far and end up with an over-sharpened mess. In this 10 minute video Tony Northrup demonstrates how sharpening works in Lightroom, and how to know how much is enough. Northrup notes that while almost all images can do with at least a little sharpening (although Eric Kim may debate that point), going too far can result in haloing in tonal transition areas as well as emphasizing the noise in your image. Example showing haloing around the bird’s beak By zooming in on transition areas in...

8-Bit vs 16-Bit Photos: Here’s What the Difference Is

8-Bit vs 16-Bit Photos: Here’s What the Difference Is More bits are better, right? But do you really know the difference between 8-bit and 16-bit images? Photo educator Nathaniel Dodson breaks it down for us in this informative 8-minute video for his channel tutvid. As Dodson explains, a greater bit depth means that you have more room to push and pull colors and tones before you start seeing artifacts like banding in your image. If you are shooting in JPEG you’re limiting your bit depth to 8-bit, which gives you 256 levels of color and tone to play with. RAW images can be anywhere from 12 to 16 bit, with the latter giving you 65,536...

Mesmerizing Photos of Car Tunnels in Holland “Tunnel Vision” is a new series of photos by Dutch photographer Patrick van Dam, who visited car tunnels in Holland and captured mesmerizing views from directly in the middle of the lanes. “I have a fascination for tunnels,” Van Dam writes. “Driving through a tunnel, I feel as if I’m in a sci-fi movie and my vessel has just been launched into space from the mothership.” “I love the slated concrete, the symmetry and the never-ending perspective,” the photographer continues. “It’s pleasing to the eye. The lighting, the shape and the...

This Guy Shot the Solar Eclipse with a Game Boy Camera During the Great American Eclipse, while most photographers worried about camera settings and solar filters, Redditor zhx decided to bust out a Game Boy Camera, which was introduced in 1998 and features a 128×128 pixel CMOS sensor. Here’s the photo, captured from Portland, Oregon: The solar eclipse actually takes up a very small portion of the frame, and the dark circle is a halo effect from the corona around the moon. Here’s a photo of the camera kit zhx used: The camera is so old that working with the resulting files isn’t exactly easy and straightforward....
