It’s been around two weeks now since NASA’s Perseverance rover sent its first image from Mars. As time goes by, NASA’s gallery is being filled with more and more photos of the Red Planet, giving us an insight into the look of its surface. If you’d like to roam the Jezero crater with Perseverance, take a look at some of the latest images that it sent back to Earth.
After Deep Nostalgia, here’s another tool that lets you animate your still images. Tokkingheads lets you choose a photo or avatar, merge it with a video to copy the moves from it, and even add audio to your creations. It’s a bit less impressive than Deep Nostalgia, but more fun and interactive… and I got totally hooked to playing with it!
Nikon has just launched NX Studio, all-in-one software that lets you view and edit your photos, including both photos and video. It’s made to help you edit everything in one place, and it’s completely free for download, so let’s see what you can expect from it.
It’s been tough for Nikon over the past year or so. So tough that rumors about Nikon’s exiting the camera business have started to spread. It’s just speculation for now, but the company’s share in the mirrorless market has been so small that it was enough for the rumors to spread like wildfire.
I vividly remember the time when I first saw a swarm of fireflies. Their flickering completely enchanted me, and of course, I also tried taking some photos. However, they were quite… underwhelming, to say the least. But photographer Daniel Kordan has managed to capture the beauty and magic of fireflies. He turned them into a series of images he kindly shared with DIYP, along with his gear and settings that he used to create them.
Black panthers are not only beautiful creatures, they’re also very rare. Photographer Will Burrard-Lucas was determined to photograph this amazing animal and he released his first images in 2019. But he wanted to raise his project to a new level. He combined a black panther with a starry sky in a series of photos that were a challenge to capture – but they were well worth the effort.
NASA’s Perseverance rover has been all over the news ever since its successful landing on the Martian surface. The rover’s landing didn’t only leave the viewers in tears in awe, but it also left some garbage on Mars. In this satellite image, you can see the rover and its landing components scattered across the landing site.
If you’ve always wanted to watch a cartoon about camera history, you’ve come to the right place: here’s a North Korean cartoon that teaches children camera history. It’s actually a combination of cartoon and studio footage, and it’s is cute, encouraging, and informative. But at the same time, it’s odd and full of moments that will make you scratch your head – and this is why you won’t be able to stop watching.
Some photographers experimented with remote shooting before 2020. But when the pandemic hit, video call shoots became a thing. In fact, they seem to be so popular now that even Prince Harry and Meghan Markle had their pregnancy photo taken remotely. Photographer Misan Harriman took the photo of the couple via iPad from 5,500 miles away. He directed the shoot from London while the couple was all the way in Santa Barbara, California, and the photo caused tons of mixed reactions on social media.
