A woman in India recently fell to her death while trying to take a selfie by a waterfall. The woman was reportedly taking a selfie on the edge and lost her balance, after which the strong water current swept her away.
Photographers are no strangers to the outdoors. A good number of us tend to take our cameras when we go out to nature, even if it’s not our niche. When I pack my photography bag for nature, I don’t always consider all the things I might need. This is why we made the list of all things you should take with you on your next photo hike. Amazingly, we were about to fit 32 different items into the new Lowpro Photosport 24L AW3.

There might not have been any mirrorless cameras shown off in the behind the scenes tour of the NPS vault at the Tokyo Olympics (Nikon has since clarified that it does contain Nikon Z6 II and Z7 II bodies), but there has been a new one spotted out shooting actual events. Photos were posted to Twitter (and then deleted) by Photolari, and judging from the design, it can’t be anything but the Nikon Z9.
Fortunately, the folks at DC-Info saved the images and shared them before the tweet was deleted. The images show only the rear of the camera, but given the layout, it’s obviously one with a built-in vertical grip. Given that Nikon has yet to release a mirrorless camera with a built-in vertical grip and it’s definitely not a Nikon D6, that really only leaves one option.
If you use Behance to showcase your work, you can now also use it to make some money from it. Adobe has released a subscription service on Behance that will allow you to monetize your work by selling access to premium content. If you’re familiar with Patreon or the Channel Membership on YouTube, this new Behance feature is something similar.

With the pandemic and all limitations it brought upon us, some photographers turned to video games for shooting alternatives. But is there a career path potential lying in video game photography? Folks at Repair Outlet did a little research to see which games are used for honing photography-related skills. As it turns out, there are plenty of them, and we can even see it become a career in the future.
