Drone owners, it looks like Spiderman-inspired nets aren’t the only thing you’ll need to worry about taking down your drone.
Models, Photographers, MUA’s – The computer is out to get your jobs!
In recent years, we’ve seen how photography is being taken out of catalogs. IKEA was one of the first to embrace 3D rendering, with about 75% of its catalog being computer generated. Now it seems that fashion photography is following the same footprints.
Looklet is a company that does to fashion catalogs what IKEA did to furniture catalogs. Almost.
The video description explains how a fashion house can focus on shooting clothes while Looklet will superimpose them on models (of your choice), provide backdrops and create a finished image.
So, we know that the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II is due to be out this week, (we had leaks and rumors) but it is not out yet, at least not on Canon’s web site. Well, looks like someone hit the publish button a bit early and put it in the store, exposing the full prices, photos and specs of the 1DX mark II. Yes PROcam, I am taking about you.
All Things Photo Podcast spotted the premature outing and captured a bunch of screenshots. I would not be surprised if a press release from canon came out later today.
So, what so we have there?
After his younger brother Romeo participated in a Christmas ad for Burberry, a British luxury fashion house, 16-year-old Brooklyn Beckham was chosen to photograph the company’s latest fragrance campaign.
Claiming that he was chosen due to his parents, David and Victoria Beckham, and his many Instagram followers, professional photographers are complaining about nepotism and the “devaluation of photography”.
Was this a smart marketing strategy or a slap in the face of professional photographers?
Mirrorless cameras are the in thing these days. Being called ‘DSLR killers’, some speculate that the soon-to-be announced Canon EOS-1D X Mark II and recently announced Nikon D5 will be the last, or almost last, flagship cameras in a dying out market.
They’re small, lightweight, less conspicuous and out-perform DSLR cameras in certain parameters. Sounds like mirrorless is the way to go, right?
Pouring a big, cold bucket of ice on the mirrorless-enthusiasm, however, are these 6 reasons why you shouldn’t chuck your DSLR just yet.
This post stems from a conversation started with my good friend Chris Frosin, during a rainy visit to the Lake District a few days ago. Chris and I don’t get together too often, so when we do, it’s a good opportunity to geek out on the some of the latest photo news.
I’ve been shooting with SLRs of one type or another for about the past 17 years. I switched from 35mm to digital in 2002, and for the last 7 years, despite bouncing around between other various cameras and brands for certain shoots that had specific technical requirements, my body of choice has always been the Nikon D300s, and still is.
It’s my go-to camera. It’s what’s always charged and ready to go at a moment’s notice. I use it for both personal and client work.
DIYP was one of the first to report about Nikon Singapore awarding a trolley bag to a Photoshopped photo (you can read the full story here). While both the internet and Nikon SG have been having a great deal of fun with the photo, Yu Wei have been taking quite a deal of abuse. From something that was supposed to be a fun photo contest, this has become an open season on Yu Wei.
GoPros are marketed towards those who seek adrenaline, day in, day out. For better or worse, adrenaline often coincides with illegal activities. This was made very evident in the latest GoPro adventures of 18-year-old Andrej Ciesielski, a German-born teen who recently made an illegal climb to the top of the Great Pyramid of Giza and captured it all on his head-mounted GoPro.

Uh oh. Nikon Singapore PR might have some explaining to do.
Last night, Nikon Singapore shared a Facebook post announcing the winner of a photo contest giveaway. There was a slight problem though. The winning photo appears to be a fake, despite the story behind the image blatantly stating otherwise. [Read more…]
