I believe it’s hard to beat clichés when it comes to wedding photography. But Brazilian photographer Fernando Duque and witty bride Rebeca Brantes nailed it with Rebeca’s bridal photo shoot. She is a computer engineer surrounded by guy friends, so she couldn’t gather a bunch of girlfriends for the shoot. But then she got an idea – why not make it with guys? After this fun idea, she found a great photographer, but also five great male friends who were more than willing to help her out. As a result, they came up with a series of images that will make your day.
Thanks to my job, I’ve seen some fascinating drones so far. But the drone I discovered today, along with its unfortunate choice of name, made me burst into laughter. It got me wondering if the person who thought of the name speaks English, and how well they speak it. Because with such name, along with the photo, aerial photography is definitely not the first thing that comes to mind.
It’s May and catchy Christmas carols are finally out our heads. Even though it’s out of season, photographer Ed Gregory decided to sing one of the Christmas songs on his YouTube channel. But it comes with a twist – he made it about photography.
“12 Days of Photography” fits 12 photography tips into a 4-minute song. And while he and his buddy Dan Cooper have fun singing, Ed Gregory’s clone has troubles keeping up with them and demonstrating all the tips. If you’re a photography newbie, this is a certain way to memorize some of the rules. And for those of you who are more experienced – this will cheer you up if you’re having a bad day.
Ok, we get it. You shot it with your phone. You brought your DSLR, but you fell into a fountain and waterlogged all your gear. The repair estimate was nearly $2000, except you went to Thailand and got it fixed for $120. Good thing you had your iPhone. The quality was so good that your client, a barber named Steve who has never paid for photography, couldn’t tell the difference.
When your friend challenged you to take a night shot with your phone, you muttered, “bring it on” to yourself, then built an app because your company tells you to spend 10% of your time eating for free in the cafeteria. Then you composited 487 photos and used AI, AR, VR, ILC, and THC to get a photo that you could’ve taken with your DSLR, which you didn’t have because you tripped and broke your lens.
When a new piece of gear is released, it’s accompanied by a press release. This press release is often filled full of jargon and tech speak. Details that 99% of customers either don’t understand or even really care about. But big numbers and words that are difficult to pronounce look impressive. So, manufacturers include them.
Savvy manufacturers, though, can save a little money on their marketing budget, and the new Random Photo Marketing Generator instead. Created by Roger Cicala and Seb Pearce, you’d swear you were reading the website of one of the well known lens manufacturers. Of course, the text it generates is complete nonsense, but it does sound very good.
Whenever I take photos I am satisfied with, I feel butterflies in my stomach. I recently though how photography gives me the same feeling as when I’m in love. And so, my always-in-love brain came up with a bit quirky comparison: how is photography similar to a relationship?
I’ve had a few relationships over the years. I’m currently in the longest one with a human, but the one I’ve had with photography still beats it in duration. All this considered, I thought about a few phases every relationship goes through and compared it to the phases I had with photography. As odd as it may sound – they actually have plenty of similarities.
Although we have ran the occasional pranks in the past for April Fools’ Day, we decided not to do one this year. We wanted to just sit back and enjoy everybody else’s jokes this year. As it’s already April 1st in Australia, a few have started coming through already.
We’ll be updating this post as the day goes on and different timezones start hitting midnight. So, keep checking back. And if you spot a good one that’s not listed, let us know in the comments!
Being a photographer or videographer is not easy, as you need to deal with all sorts of challenges and all kinds of people. But animal photographers are among those I admire most. It’s difficult to capture animals and make them do what you want. With them, you almost never know what they will do. Sometimes even the wild animals are sweet, and they come for a cuddle. And other times, they want to see what you taste like. And this is exactly what happened to this cameraman while filming sea lions under water.
Most people use drones to take magnificent aerial videos and photos. I mean, that’s what drones are for, right? But, this video shows us that it doesn’t necessarily have to be the case. Here you will see a video of a couple filmed with a drone, but in quite an unconventional way – without flying it.
