French photographer Sacha Goldberger asked some questions and, as a result, plunged some of the most iconic characters of recent memory into the 17th century with this fantastic photo series titled “Super Flemish”.
The 4th of July is rapidly approaching, and some of our American readers may be getting ready to have a go at some fireworks photography. Fireworks aren’t difficult to photograph, but they aren’t something you want to go into blind.
Whether the work we create is digital, or a little more tangible, it’s an inevitable consequence that some of it will be lost or destroyed. In this short series of videos released by Adobe, we see four of them recreated using Photoshop and stock imagery.
Rembrandt’s The Storm on the Sea of Galilee went missing in 1990 after thieves disguised as police officers broke into the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum and stole an eximated $500 million worth of paintings. In this video, we see it recreated digitally by digital artist Ankur Patar.
I primarily photograph people, but children are a subject I’ve generally stayed well clear of. I have nothing against them, and apparently I used to be one (my wife says I still am), but when it comes to photographing them, it just really doesn’t appeal to me.
If you’re a parent, on the other hand, your children may be your most photographed subject, and something you actively enjoy. In this video, photographer Karl Taylor is going to give you some tips and tricks to help you get the best shots you can of your kids.
Acquired by the Bettwieser a year ago at auction,the bundles of film are meticulously wrapped and labelled, including information such as the camera used, light modifiers, and exactly when the films were shot.
This is a strange one, and I’m not quite sure how I feel about it yet. The new ICELAVA Warm-to-Cold fader is a new filter which offers a stepless level of white balance adjustment from 2900K to 6300K.
It works similarly to a circular polariser or variable neutral density filter. You screw it onto your lens, and then the front rotates to change the effect seen through your lens, but I’m really not getting the point.
In another instance of drone operator stupidity, 38 year old Stephanie Creignou was seriously injured when a 2.8lb (1.3kg) drone dropped from about 33ft (10m) in the air straight into her head with a velocity of around 25mph (11m/s) during the Challenge 5km Arc-en-Ciel race in Beloeil, Canada.
TVA reports that the operator of the drone, Rosaire Turcotte, had been previously warned about his reckless flying, flew much closer to the crowd than was allowed, and didn’t have the required permits to fly his DJI Phantom 3 at the event in the first place.
At some point, almost all of us will need to shoot a good product photo. We may not be shooting them for clients, or doing video reviews, but we’ll probably stick something up on eBay and want to show it off well to increase the chances of it fetching a good price.
In this video from Curtis Judd, we see a quick and easy setup for lighting products on a white stage for some great looking images.
Here’s another one to add to the list of dangerous selfies. Walking across hot coals and stopping to take a selfie; if it wasn’t obvious enough already.
Approximately 40 people have been treated for burn injuries for allegedly doing exactly that during a Tony Robbins “Unleash the Power Within” seminar at the Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center in Dallas recently.
We posted about the new drone regulations for commercial drone use a few days ago, but what about hobbyists? For most hobbyists, all you need to do is register, and that’s only if your drone weighs more than 250g.
If your drone weighs less than that, just go out and fly, but for those with something a little beefier, here’s everything you need to know about how to register your drone.
