As traveling photographers, we often encounter locals who don’t share our language(s). If you prefer human interaction to googling everything, there’s now a perfect T-shirt for you. ICONSPEAK (see what they did there) has launched a line of clothing and accessories that will make interactions easier, more fun, and help you get the information that you need.
Pinhole photography is a strange aspect of photography. On the one hand, it’s used to teach people about the bare basic principles of light and photography and building one can be a fun weekend project with the kids. But on the other, it’s also a whole craft and art form in and of itself that can be taken to quite some extreme measures and produce amazing imagery.
One such photographer who definitely seems to have mastered pinhole photography as a craft and an art form is fine art and landscape photographer Martin Henson, who in this video takes us on a journey creating a seemingly simple image with a fantastic end result.
The death of George Floyd this May sparked protests across the USA and even internationally. These events make us reevaluate many things, including the ethics of storytelling and photography. In this week’s episode of Impact Everywhere’s podcast, Benjamin Von Wong spoke to Danielle Da Silva. She is an award-winning photographer, and a founder and CEO of Photographers Without Borders (PWB). Danielle spoke with Ben about her own experience with discrimination, and elaborated on PWB’s guidelines for ethical photography. If you’re a photojournalist, this is something you must listen. But honestly, I recommend it to everyone.

Is erotic photography the same as porn? Is it something to be ashamed of? Even though it’s been around for ages, there are still many myths about this genre. In this video, photographer and writer Anete Lusina addresses some of the most common misconceptions about erotic photography. If you shoot it and you’re in any way insecure about your work, this is a must-watch.
There are plenty of photographer who have started a YouTube channel. Ever since the coronavirus had us all locked inside, it seems that even more creatives have turned to YouTube. They share their knowledge, create all kinds of content, and try to make a living (or at least some additional income) out of it. But this journey is far from being easy. In this video, Sean Tucker shares some of his valuable insights after four years on the platform. It will be useful for all of you who have just started or think of staring a YouTube channel.
The lockdowns around the world have us all thinking a little outside the box right now when it comes to our photography and filmmaking. We’re not able to get out to shoot our usual subjects, so we start to experiment and try new things.
For photographer and filmmaker Arthur Cauty, that meant looking back on some of his old work to see if he could make something new out of it. And that’s exactly what he did. His short film Night Light is a mixture of timelapse sequences of star trails mixed with long exposure night sky and light painted landscape photographs he’s made. And the final result is quite beautiful.
The body language of your model has an enormous influence on the visual impact of your photos. We tell you how you can support the expressiveness of your pictures by planned posing and show you with examples what is behind the terms “High Power” & “Low Power” Poses.
As a photographer, you don’t always get a model in front of the lens who is practiced in posing and is also aware of the effect of its poses, for example in customer shootings. A lack of body awareness can sometimes lead to exaggerated poses or insecurity in front of the camera can lead to a tense posture. But this does not have to be the case.
A simple smile can make a significant change. Apparently, it can sometimes also “break the internet.” A photo from the late 19th century has recently emerged and quickly went viral. Unlike most photos from that era, it contains something so small, yet so powerful: a smile.
The coronavirus locked us all in for a while. Still, it looks like nothing could lock in the creativity of some artists. If you have an idea, you can turn it into an art project without leaving your room – and this is exactly what the folks of Dugly Habits did. Their short movie Only The Fish Remained Silent was shot entirely in a living room, with a crew of only four people. It’s a perfect example of unlimited creativity even in limited conditions, and it also shows us just how much creative lighting can do for a story.
