To celebrate the 20th anniversary, the European Space Agency (ESA) has published the longest timelapse video ever recorded in space. Starting from Tunisia, the timelapse takes you to two whole trips around our home planet, and it took more than 21,000 photos to create it.
Street photography is important, versatile, and in my opinion – one of the most challenging genres there is. But there are some problems with street photography that largely revolve around ethics.

Most of Apple’s ads over the years tend to be a dig at a competitor. Most notably, PCs. But over the last few years, Apple’s been on the receiving end of other companies ads taking jabs at them, particularly from Samsung. So, they changed tactics to try and tell stories, especially with their Christmas adverts.
And while this is still just an advertisement, Apple’s 2018 Christmas ad, Share Your Gifts, tells a great story. And regardless of who’s saying it, the message it gives is a good one; If you’re a secret creative, don’t be afraid to put yourself and your work out there.
When you’re traveling, everything is new to you and there’s so much to photograph: nature, landscapes, cities, and of course: the people. It seems like a dream come true, but it can be a real challenge to photograph people in a country new to you and in a different culture. There are so many nuances to keep in mind and many potential misunderstandings.
In this video, Mitchell Kanashkevich discusses all the hard truths about photographing people while you’re traveling. But he also offers solutions to overcome challenges and end up with splendid photos, memorable experiences, and perhaps even some new friendships.

I guess most of us have seen graffiti incorporated in photography as a backdrop. But, Colombian artist Sepc has found another interesting way of combining photography and graffiti art. He creates murals that reveal their true colors only when you snap a photo of them and invert it. Sepc shares a bit about his process with DIYP, as well as a couple of photos of these “negative murals.”
In tricky lighting situations, most photographers expose for the highlights to prevent them from getting blown out. But this can create dark shadows which sometimes don’t preserve enough detail. What to do with them? Should you brighten them up in post? According to Sean Tucker, you shouldn’t. Instead, just embrace them and use them to your advantage. In this highly inspirational video, Sean discusses how to do it, and why this advice goes for both photography and life.
