So you had a photo shoot on Saturday morning and it seems that your model partied hard the night before? She’s holding up well, but there are eye bags that give her away. This video tutorial from Mathieu Stern will show you how to remove the eye bags in under a minute. Instead of using the Healing Brush or Clone Stamp, it relies on modifying curves and masking. It preserves the texture of the skin and removes the dark areas under the eyes, and it takes a few steps in Photoshop.

One day, humans will probably land on Mars and take photos, like Apollo astronauts did on the Moon. But probably not in our lifetime.

It took over 33,000 reference points and 3 months to create the film, but it was worth it. Jan has created a mesmerizing video. Are you ready to explore Mars?

I’ve heard many people say sunset photos are cliché and they all look the same. Therefore, I’m glad to present you with a project that makes them as unique as you can imagine. Photographer Jason D. Page has published a series named “Pyramids in the Sky”, featuring fantastic photos taken at dusk.

It’s a series of eye-catching, abstract pyramids, painted by the Sun and the colorful sky in the sunset.
Jason has shared some details about his project with us, as well as the settings and gear he used. So if you still think sunsets are boring, here’s a fresh approach that might change your mind.
