Have you ever tried Cibachrome (Ilfochrome) processing? The materials for it are not produced any longer, and I suppose most of us will never get to see or make such photos. But artist and engineer Tim Hunkin was lucky enough to have some of the papers left in stock. He chose quite a strange DIY camera, developed the photos inside of it, and achieved remarkable results.
Charades is a pretty common game to play with the family at Christmas. You know the one. Where one person tries to mime out a word or a phrase, while everybody else attempts to hilariously guess what it is. Well, this year, the folks at Analog Process decided to give the name a new twist, with Light Charades.
In the game, one person had to light paint a picture to represent the word, and another had to guess what it was. In order to capture the light painting, they used a 4×5 large format camera with instant film. Despite the lack of drawing ability by some of them, and the fact they’d probably never light painted before, their results were surprisingly good.
Have you ever felt stressed, shitty, and overwhelmed with life — and went out with a walk with your camera, and instantly felt much better?
For me, photography is all about self-therapy. I’ve used the camera as a tool to overcome my stress, my social anxiety, and as a way of creative self-expression.
I’ve seen (and bought) my fair share of Star Wars gadgets and toys. But the guys from FliteTest have taken Star Wars gadgets to a whole new level. They built their own giant Death Star drone to recreate the attack scene. But this one has a slightly different flow and ending, and if you are on the Dark Side, you will shed a tear of joy.
This is one of those posts that’s going to divide people. Some will love it and completely agree with everything said. Others will hate it, but it’s usually because they’re guilty of the things mentioned. If I’m completely honest, I might’ve done one or two of them myself in the past. But, ultimately, you don’t have to agree with it, as long as you’re happy with what you’re doing.
When I first watched Joe Edelman’s Holiday Wish List for photographers, I did find myself nodding in agreement with a lot of it. I’m not planning to do anything about my G.A.S., though. Mine is a relatively mild case, and most of the things on my list aren’t being made any more.
This video recently surfaced on Reddit, after it was discovered by user TheKnightLife. It was featured in the 80s on ABC in the show “World of Photography”. As it turned out, the profile was on TheKnightLife’s father, sports photographer Bill Knight. Bill says in the video that he’d been on the tour for about 13 years, which his son believes puts the video at sometime around 1985.
Bill retired in the early 2000s after never fully recovering from a double knee replacement surgery due to osteoarthritis. He passed away in August, 2015, but this video serves as a good memory of how dedicated he was to his photography. And the passion he obviously had for it.
Planning is often key to a successful shoot. But it’s not always easy. When you’re an automotive photographer, for example, then you, the car and the location may be in three different parts of the country. So, it can take some ingenuity and creative thinking to figure it out. When car photographer, Sam Dobbins, decided to shoot his newly rebuilt “Rocket Bunny Volkswagen GTI”, he found the perfect solution.
Dobbins wanted to photograph it the same way he would shoot any other car for a magazine. He wanted to photograph the car at Lime Rock Park, Connecticut. The problem was, he lived a thousand miles away in Florida, and the car was being rebuilt in New York. With no way to scout the location in advance with the car, Dobbins turned to racing game Forza 6 to previsualise the shoot.
Throughout the years I’ve seen lots of different phenomena in the sky but one that have been on my bucket list for quite some time is the very rare lunar fog bow. I’ve seen photos of it but I’ve never seen it in real life, until now. This Saturday turned out to be my lucky night. I hadn’t planed to go out at all but after having a look to the north a saw some faint Northern Lights so I decided to head out to see if the activity would increase.
I’m sure you’ve encountered with gender stereotypes at some point of your life, one way or another. Unfortunately, they are all around us, even in the image search engine results. International technology company Semcon Global has recognized this and decided to do something about it. They wanted to draw attention to gender inequality and existing stereotypes in job image search. So they’ve created Re-Search, an extension that automatically makes your image searches of different professions more gender balanced.
We all use Adobe Photoshop, at least up to some point. It’s definitely the most used photo editing software in the world. What’s more, it’s one of the world’s most used and most famous pieces of software in general. This short and fun video will guide you through 28 years of Photoshop in only 3 minutes.
