Adobe has announced that their Creative Cloud suite of apps is now available for Chromebooks. What they did was modify their existing Android apps, so they are now compatible with selected Chromebooks. Considering these devices are mainly used in schools, this could be a step forward in education, and the best thing is – these apps will be available free of charge for students and teachers.
One of the “fun facts” I remember from my photography classes was that “wide-angle lenses are not for portraits”. Of course, you can always experiment and photograph people with wider focal lengths, but the truth is – it does make them seem a bit weird in the photos. This fun gif shows precisely how the change of focal length affects the face of a person you’re photographing.
No matter how hard you try, your sensor will eventually get a few specks of dust. Now, you have two options: clean the sensor, or clean the photos by removing the dust spots in post-processing. If you prefer the second method, this short video by Benjamin Warde will show you how to make sure you haven’t missed a single part of the photo.
What was your most common mistake when you were a beginner in photography? We all make mistakes, but fortunately – we learn from them, so we become better and better. Rachel and Daniel from Mango Studio point out three most common mistakes almost every new photographer makes, but also offer ways to overcome them. Did you make these, too?
Cheap light panels and cheap softboxes to go along are a lifesaver when you’re on a tight budget. But softbox with a spongy strap can’t be attached quickly (especially if you’re clumsy). Also, it won’t stay in place when you attach it to the LED panel. This video by Macroscope Pictures will show you how to solve this problem in less than $3 and upgrade your softbox for any of your “run and gun” projects.
If you enjoy watching time-lapse videos, then you’ve heard of Morten Rustad. After his video “NORWAY – A Time-Lapse Adventure”, he now has a new gorgeous time-lapse video out. “SEASONS of NORWAY – A Time-Lapse Adventure” is recorded in 8K, and it covers 20,000 kilometers of a beautiful country of Norway. It was shot within a course of one year, showing the divine beauty of Norway throughout four seasons.
Gender stereotypes exist in all fields of our society, and jobs are no exception. Even Google Image Search separates men and women in different job groups. Photographer Chris Crisman created a project that blurs the traditional line between “men’s” and “women’s” jobs.
In a project “Women’s Work”, he created environmental portraits of women in their workplace – and they all work at the positions traditionally held by men. The results are stunning, powerful portraits of equally stunning and powerful women.
If you wonder who was at Donald Trump’s recent inauguration, here’s something to satisfy your curiosity. CNN takes you there with a single image, as they have published a gigapixel photo of the event. Since gigapixel technology has taken off in the past couple of years, it was probably expected. So, now you can finally see it and check out every detail of the event.
According to theoretical physics, nothing is faster than the speed of light. However, now you can see with your own eyes the first ever recording of a “sonic boom” – created by light. Or scientifically called a photonic Mach cone. It was recorded by researchers at Washington University in St. Louis, and they used a custom high-speed camera to make the footage.
You’ve heard about sonic booms, and you’ve probably heard one at least once. They occur when an object exceeds the speed of sound. But if nothing is theoretically faster than light – how did they do this? In the description, the setting seems simple, and they built the custom high-speed camera – the fastest one in the world.
Photographers and videographers, regardless of their skill level, can have tons of gear. It’s not easy to keep track of it all, so Jared Polin, also known as FroKnowsPhoto, has created MyGearVault. This is an app that helps you input, organize and protect your gear in a simple and efficient way. You can keep track of all your photographic gear for any purpose – business, personal or insurance. It makes it easier and less time consuming to organize the gear and always have a clear insight what you own and how much it’s worth. It’s useful for photographers and videographers, regardless of their skill level and the amount of gear they own.
