Less than 48 hours ago, we shared leaked photos of Canon’s then-upcoming camera, the 80D. Now, the 80D has officially been announced, alongside the also-leaked EF-S 18–135mm f/3.5–5.6 and PZ-E1 Power Zoom Adapter. [Read more…]
Having recently stumbled across the work of Scientist and Fine Art Photographer Dr Eran Gilat I immediately fell in love with it.
Some may find his subject matter a little bit weird or creepy, but it definitely hits the spot for me from both aesthetic and technical standpoints. Perhaps that’s because it’s a little bit weird and creepy, but without the horror glorification that you often see in other images of the same subjects.
We reached out to Eran, to get a little more insight into the work and the man himself.
Color is something that’s on my mind a lot throughout the shoot process. It’s something to consider when planning, shooting or doing post work. This video from motion graphics artist Rhea Lelina Manglapus does a decent job at making color theory both fun to watch and pretty easy to grasp.
Starting with the basics, Rhea takes us on a journey that packs a lot of information into a relatively short amount of time. If you have started to dive into color (which we have lately), this would be a great refresher.
Did you ever think that you could build a motorized camera slider from the junk laying around in your garage? Well, the folks at Make: have you covered.
We’ve covered some very cheap DIY camera sliders builds in the past, but if a $50 DIY slider or even a $20 DIY slider is still beyond your wallet, then this one beats all other budgets, hands down. This super down and dirty setup can cost as little as nothing if you have a bunch of old junk laying around.
Every once in a while we will see an epic photoshop fail making its way into the front page. Heck, even Victoria’s Secret had a Photoshop bloop a while back. Now, Snickers is building on those fails in a new ad featured in Sport Illustrated.
Sports Illustrated back cover does not target the general public, they do not even target photographers (is there a difference) they are targeting retouchers, with a brilliant ad.
According to Snickers , Photoshop fails happen when retouchers are tired (due to not eating sneakers, I suppose). I have to say it smiled pretty broadly when I saw that.
Two words can make or break a man. That is the lesson learned in a wonderfully inspiring video, titled I’m Possible, from renowned illustrator-turned-photographer, Jeremy Cowart.
Those words were ‘I can’t.’ And, one day after another, those five letters were removed from his vocabulary, with the help of his parents and ever-inspiring mentors along the way. [Read more…]
When the clouds evaporate and your DVD, Blu-Ray and hard drive backups are no longer readable, what are you going to do about accessing your data?
Valuable personal images might be gone forever (of course, that’s also a good argument for printing your photos), or perhaps you shoot for a living, and keep a permanent archive of all your work.
It’s a lot of hard work to maintain reliable digital backups and to keep shifting all your data from one storage medium to the next generation every few years – especially when some hard drives might not be as reliable as we were led to believe, and cloud services have the potential to accidentally delete data at will.
Scientists at the University of Southampton seem to have found a potential answer for the issue of long term storage, in the form of small glass discs.
Following from last year’s announcement that they were raising 440 billion yen (nearly $4 billion) to further development and production of new sensor technology, Sony have started to reveal the fruits of their labor with the announcement of their new IMX318 sensor.
Aimed squarely at the mobile devices market and with a pixel size of only 1.0μm, they’re able to pack an impressive 22.5MP into a sensor that has a diagonal of only 6.858mm.
Boasting a more compact size, greater image quality and higher performance, the IMX318 is the industry’s first to be equipped with built in high-speed hybrid autofocus system, able to lock on to a subject as quickly as only 0.3 seconds.
I’ve always held the opposite opinion when confronted with the phrase “The camera never lies”. If you ask me, the camera’s always lied and that lying often causes controversy.
This amusing video by Bí Kíp Sống Ảo goes some way towards showing just how true this is, especially when it comes to social media photography.
