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.

How much inspiration do you get from other senses to create your visual art? The latest episode of Canon Australia’s project The Lab tries to explore the connection of two senses – vision and taste. Three photographers get together, and instead of using their eyes, they can only use taste to get inspired and create a photo. So, what does it look like when the taste becomes a photograph?
This Friday, federal appeals court in Washington D.C. decided that Federal Aviation Administration has no right to require hobbyists to register their camera drones and model aircraft. As SF Gate reports, this decision came after a drone hobbyist John Taylor filed a claim against the FAA in 2016. He claimed that they don’t have the right to force him to register his aircraft.
As U.S. Circuit Judge Brett Kavanaugh states, “Taylor does not think that the FAA had the statutory authority to issue the registration rule and require him to register.” And according to the judge, he is right.
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.
I often mention the issue of whether or not photographers can “change the world”. It’s something we could speculate about, but what I firmly believe is that you can at least change someone’s world, or to put it simply – improve someone’s life. And it’s precisely what a group of photo enthusiasts is trying to do.
Joined through Epic Photo Tours and guided by Herb Leventon, this group changes the world of those who live in darkness. They have donated over 400 solar lights to the people from remote villages who live without any light once the sun sets. And of course, they have documented it in a series of beautiful images from different parts of the globe.
Colorizing a black and white image in Photoshop requires a huge amount of time, and not to mention that you need exceptional skill to do it. A year ago, Richard Zhang and a team at University of California revealed Algoritmia, an app that does it automatically. It was fun to play with it, but there was still plenty of room for improvement. Now, a year later, they have found a new approach. And this time, the results are way more impressive.
Lots of interesting news has been coming from Google lately. They seem to be very devoted to the development of AI, and there is another novelty they may implement. Soon, Google could become able to remove the unwanted objects from your photos. In other words, if you take a photo through glass or a fence, the algorithm will automatically remove the obstruction and produce a clean photo.
Why only have round bokeh, when you can get it all sorts of shapes? You can achieve shaped bokeh by cutting a shape in black paper and placing it on the lens. Or if you’re too lazy or not really precise, you can even buy premade shapes. But what if I told you there’s a way to achieve square bokeh with nothing but a lens? Mathieu Stern presents you with a cheap lens that has a square aperture, so it creates super-interesting square bokeh.
