Stop motion animation is hardly a new art, but the brand new advertisement PES created for Honda takes the art form to a new level. Instead of trying to deliver a smooth animation, the advert ‘breaks the fourth wall‘ and features the hands making the animation as part of the animation itself.
At virtually every major sporting event across the planet, we see groups of photographers huddled together on the sidelines, their allegiance often only visible by the colour of the lenses attached to their cameras, but why are Canon’s telephoto lenses white?
Canon’s official position is that large lenses contain large elements and that are more susceptible to heat expansion than the lens elements found in smaller lenses.
Living next to Europe means I get to visit the UK Photography show* every march. This is the biggest photoshow in the UK and you can think about it as a Photokina prequel.
Bowens were supposed to have a MASSIVE booth on that show. (A huge booth, a show stage for them and a lounge – a few thousands of square feet). A verified source just informed DIYP that Bowens is pulling out out of the show. More details, and some analysis ahead.
An interesting teaser from the Adobe Blogs popped up on my news feed briefly last night, stating that Lightroom 2.0 for Android had now been released.
Listing several cool new features, I thought this was worth a look, only to discover that the actual post on Adobe’s website did not exist, nor did any reference to it in the Adobe Blogs index.
One of my favorite things about photography is how it enables “time travel”. Photographer Freddy Fabris (previously) took his models on a ride to 1900’s where he re-created a series of 1900’s sportsmen. Freddy shares that “The series was inspired by late 1800‘s, early 1900‘s studio portrait photography, with their use of painted backdrops and simple props” that was a starting point and he took if from there. the series includes a Boxer, an Equestrian, a Fenser, and Hockey & Tennis players.
Otro animal inofensivo es víctima de los humanos, a este delfín del plata bebe, especie en peligro de extinción, lo sacaron del agua para sacarle fotos y tocarlo. Solo a personas con muy poca educación o totalmente inepta se le necesita decir que el delfín es un animal marino y que necesita agua para vivir. La ignorancia mato a este animal que podría haber vivido 20 años mas. Para que esto no pase mas deberían enseñar los derechos de los animales, debería haber algún tipo de castigo para la gente que no los respeta como lo merecen, debería ser un delito matarlos o lastimarlos igual que con los humanos porque no somos ni un poco superiores haciendo esto. Somos un nuevo enemigo para ellos como tiburones y orcas que lo hacen por necesidad. Hay que generar conciencia de esto y aprender de los errores, esto no puede seguir pasando porque cada vez que pasa hay una o mas víctimas que sufren.
Since they were introduced in 2006, GoPros around the world have been subjected to some strange and brutal challenges and environments. This one might just take the cake though.
The guys behind What’s Inside teamed up with fellow YouTuber Shonduras to drop a GoPro HERO Session into a lava lamp that had its top cut off. As you can imagine, the results are…interesting. [Read more…]
Stock footage and stills are used for more purposes than we can imagine, but they are often used in political campaign ads, even if the message they send is sometimes a little confused.
In Marco Rubio’s case, it sends the message that his editing team aren’t very good at proofing the footage they license.
In the opening sequence of this Reagan-inspired video, voiced over by the phrase “It’s morning again in America”, we see a the sun rising over the Canadian city of Vancouver, originally shot by Guy Chavasse last year.
You might remember that World Press Photo announced new guidelines last year after controversy that saw around 20% of entries disqualified, but that doesn’t seem to have slowed down the entries.
