Photography has all sorts of ‘rules’ that we’re told to adhere to: thirds, inverse square, golden mean and so on.
While these rules certainly help build the foundation of any great photographer, it’s important to remember to break the rules and step out of the mould every once in a while to learn and gain new insights.
UPDATE: this giveaway has ended, see the winner at the end of the post, thanks Triggertrap and 3LT for the awesome prizes.
Timelapses are awesome and so is high speed photography. if only there was a device that can do them both….
Oh wait… Triggertrap connects your camera to your smartphone and uses all the phone’s sensors to make timelapses, star trails, bursting balloons, breaking eggs, night to day sequences, water splashes and so much more. If only there was some place nifty to put your camera while shooting all this awesomeness. Oh wait, we are also giving away a 3 Legged Thing Evo 3 Brian tripod. so you really will be getting a full kit for just about any advanced tech shooting. The complete package is after the jump, but retail value is about $500, depending on your camera.
With storage being less of an issue than ever before and cameras becoming more powerful with each new iteration, RAW images have gone from something only the pros use to something that can now be captured in smartphones.
What is the advantage of a RAW photo though? Information. A RAW image, specifically a 16-bit image, captures and retains far more information from a photograph than an equivalent JPEG would.
It’s this extra information that allows RAW photos, often referred to as digital negatives, to be far more lenient in the editing process.

To show off just how incredible life can be, GoPro has put together a promotional video that shows off some of the most impressive feats and beautiful sights ever captured by GoPro cameras. [Read more…]
Up close and personal, wildfires are tragic and terrifying. But if you can step away from the chaos and capture things from a wider perspective, they can become a thing of beauty.
In my career as a sports photographer, I’ve been hit by all sorts of objects: balls, helmets, sticks, pucks and even a mouthguard or two. One thing I haven’t been hit with – and hope to never be hit with – is a shot put.
Unfortunately, a photographer shooting the World Indoor Athletics Championships in Portland can’t say the same. [Read more…]
More often than not, rainbows appear as a row of colorful arches in the sky. It’s a different story though when you’re looking at it from the perspective of a peregrine–a view ever so wonderfully captured by an Irish drone operator last week. [Read more…]
More and more film stocks are dying off with each passing year. While this might be bad news for those who love analogue photography, myself included, it’s also becoming a great opportunity for entrepreneurs looking to carve their own niche in the world of film photography.
They’re not the only ones though. Bellamy Hunt of Japan Camera Hunter has announced an entirely new film stock called JCH StreetPan, a 400 ASA black and white film designed specifically for street photography. [Read more…]
