“What is the relationship between photography and sound? In today’s visually-dominated culture, how can we use sound to respond to what we see around us?”

If the iPhone’s Portrait Lighting already impresses you, then you better check out Apollo. This $1.99 iOS app adds immersive lighting effects that are–dare I say–better than what Apple’s version offers.
The Apollo app uses depth map from dual cameras to create the effects so, it only currently works with the iPhone 7 Plus, 8 Plus and X. Nevertheless, it does a great job at applying different lighting effects at any angle. In fact, you can even put a light source behind a subject to act as a rim light. You can add up to 20 light sources in one image and seamlessly adjust the color, intensity, and distance. Check out the short video clip below to see it in action:

At least as far as outside appearance is concerned.
Google twitted on Monday that it will soon allow people to react to Google Photos with hearts and stars, effectively establishing a social media aspect to the photo storage platform. So, does this mean the tech giant now wants to compete with Facebook and Instagram?
Taschen just launched a book featuring young Stanley Kubrick’s photo essays for Look Magazine. It’s called Through a Different Lens: Stanley Kubrick Photographs and it includes dozens of previously unpublished images.
If you’re building a camera that requires some serious resolution, then you’re in luck. Canon is now selling their 120MP APS-H sensor to third-party camera builders, including you. If you’re wondering how powerful this sensor is, let’s just say it has 60 times the resolution of full HD. It’s pretty impressive for a small chip a tad bit bigger than a quarter.
