FPV filming pilot from Sweden, Viggo Koch, recently took his drone to the Liseberg amusement park in Gothenburg. He followed the HELIX rollercoaster and thanks to some mad piloting skills, he shot footage that might make you a bit dizzy, but it will also make you go for a ride right now!
It’s that time of the year again: The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards has announced its finalists. I don’t know about you, but it’s one of my absolute favorite photography contests and its images never fail to put a smile on my face. Hoping that they will brighten up your day just as they did mine, here are the finalist photos of the 2019 contest.
In 2014, Rosetta spacecraft became the first spacecraft to orbit a comet and bring us stunning images of its surface. In 2016, it made its final maneuver when it hard-landed the comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko. The Rosetta’s comet mission gave us over 400,000 images, and motion designer Christian Stangl and composer Wolfgang Stangl joined forces to turn them into this breathtaking video.
Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition never fails to stir our emotions with its selection of photos. The shortlisted images of the 2019 contest have just been announced, and they show the beauty and cruelty of the natural world, but also the negative impact that humans have on it.
Landscape photography marketing is one area that photographers often find particularly hard. But if you want your photography business to grow, you have to know how to market yourself and your work.
Risking to sound cheesy and cliché, I must say: I couldn’t live without music. It adds flavor to my everyday life and a soundtrack to most of my memories. When I go to a concert, it’s the best night out I can imagine. But, concerts in the 21st century come with a phenomenon I rant about whenever I can: smartphones.
Every time I go to a concert, I feel like I’m the last of the Mohicans: someone who has come to a concert to enjoy the music, sing along, dance, cry, laugh, and clap my hands until my palms are numb. Other than listening, I’m there to watch the performance, too. But it seems that most people prefer watching the entire show through the tiny displays of their phones. And this time, I won’t even bitch about how those people are blocking everyone else’s view. I wanna discuss whether or not they can even enjoy the show if they watch it entirely through a smartphone screen.
Recently I took my first ever photography trip to California. My plan was to hit up Mt Shasta, Lassen Volcanic NP, and Lake Tahoe. I wanted to share some of the things I did right as well as some of the things I did wrong.
“You’re too expensive.”
“My budget is not that big, can you lower the price?”
“But the [random other photographer] is cheaper than you!”
Sounds familiar? I believe we’ve all been there. No matter how much you charge, there will always be someone who will tell you that you’re too expensive, who will compare you to other (cheaper) photographers, and who will want to pay what they have, not what you charge. While your first thought may be to tell them “oh, bugger off,” you know that it’s certainly not the best thing to do. In this video, Michael Sasser gives you some useful tips on how to keep your cool and how to react when your potential clients complain about your price.
Increasing the ISO value increases the amount of noise in your images. So, you may want to shoot at the lowest ISO possible. But is it a good idea to shoot at ISO 100 whenever you can? Michael Sasser believes it isn’t always the best choice, and in this video, he gives you his reasons why. Let’s see if you agree.
Some photographers love spending hours in Photoshop, turning their photos into digital art. Others enhance their photos and remove mistakes and distractions. But there are also many of those who believe that editing and changing your photos is cheating. In this video, Serge Ramelli brings up some fantastic arguments to support image editing. If you believe that it’s cheating, this video might just change your mind.
