Chanel has launched a new collection of jewelry. It seems, however, that the photos that follow it have caused more reactions than the jewelry itself. The photos feature brand ambassador and famous actress Keira Knightley. They were taken by fashion photographer Sarah Moon, and the reason for strong reactions is that all the photos are blurry.
Sony a7RIII was recently announced, and it has still been causing comments from photographers of all genres. While the first experiences were positive, there were also disappointments concerning astrophotography and the “Star Eater” issue.
Starting from 2018, drone laws in the UK could become a lot stricter. The new draft legislation proposes that all drones weighing over 250g are banned from flying near airports or above 400ft altitude. Additionally, the users may be required to take a safety awareness test if they want to operate their drone. As BBC reports, the new proposals are a response to a growing number of incidents involving airplanes and drones. In addition, the new legislation should reduce the use of drones for criminal activity.
Most of us have posted childhood photos of ourselves on social networks. However, singer Bruno Mars is facing a lawsuit for doing it. Photographer Catherine McGann is reportedly suing the singer for posting the photo of himself, which she took back in 1989.
Many people don’t feel comfortable in their own skin. Imposed beauty standards and too much Photoshop in ads don’t help at all. Norwegian pharmacist Vitus have created an ad that might help people feel good in their own skin and meet all the changes that will come with aging.
The ad shows how out skin changes over a lifespan of 100 years – and it all fits in only 60 seconds. There’s no heavy retouching, just pure, natural beauty of skin of all ages and colors.
In 2014 movie Interstellar, Christopher Nolan managed to create the first scientifically accurate black hole. Some sources claim it’s not the case, but nevertheless – I think the movie and the special effects are fantastic. This movie has inspired filmmaker Thomas Vanz to create a short film named INTRA, which takes you on a journey from a black hole to the Big Bang in only four minutes.
Inspired by the “White Hole Theory” and Interstellar, Thomas created this abstract, immersive video using mainly practical effects and chemical reactions. And the final result is impressive.
Earlier this year, legendary Yashica camera brand started teasing a comeback. They launched a Kickstarter campaign, and it ended with great success: they raised the impressive $1.28 million.
Most of us have expected a mirrorless or a DSLR camera, but Yashica came back with something unexpected, to say the least. The Y35 was launched on Kickstarter in October with its faux film roll, and it caused a lot of reactions.
Judging from the comments, some photographers were eager to try it, but the majority couldn’t see the purpose of this “hipster toy.” However, a month after the campaign was launched, its success shows that there are most likely more of those who want to try out the Y35.
Being in a photography business involves interaction with lots of different people. But putting yourself and your work out there seems more difficult if you’re introverted. In this video, photographers Sean Tucker and Simon Baxter discuss this topic, and their thoughts will inspire all you introverts out there.
Unlike many other videos or blogs, Sean and Simon don’t suggest that you overcome your emotions, habits and needs and pretend to be someone you’re not. Instead, they talk about being successful while staying true to your introvert nature – and that’s what I particularly like about this video.
When shooting a video, you don’t always know how it will be edited, especially when shooting a documentary. Sometimes, the action happens only once, and you don’t have too much time to think. And when you need to cover an action or a scene, it can happen that your mind can simply go blank. Does it sound familiar? Sareesh Sudhakaran from Wolfcrow shares ten go-to shots he can always rely on when his mind goes blank while shooting. These won’t only help you get the shots you need, but also help you get focused and get back on track.
