NVIDIA’s researchers came up with an impressive algorithm that’s able to generate realistic faces. Some of them are so realistic that you may have a hard time figuring out that they were computer-generated. If you’re up for a challenge, there’s now a website where you can test how many fake faces you can distinguish from real ones. It can get more difficult than you may think.
Every new Slow Mo Guys video just makes me go “wow!”. Seething every day things shot at tens or hundreds of thousand frames per second and then massively slowed down just reveals such amazing things. It might be something incredibly beautiful, or funny, or just plain fascinating to watch.
One thing they get asked about regularly, though, is to film light itself. A seemingly impossible task, but now they’ve done it, using a camera that shoots at an extremely crazy 10,000,000,000,000 frames per second.
Every year on this day I get trolled by at least one of my friends. And as if that weren’t enough, today I’ve been trolled by the news and YouTube videos from the moment I started working. I gotta admit – I even fell for one of these pranks for a moment!
So, I’m bringing you a list of the best photography-related pranks from all over the Internet. You can use them to prank your friends, and we’ll update the article throughout the day, so you can check back. And if you’ve read the photography news today and got excited about something, keep in mind that this post may spoil it for you.
The Aurora Australis and the Milky Way are each incredible to observe and shoot on their own. But when they are both in the same frame, it’s an awe-inspiring sight.

If you’re good at photography, people have probably already started asking you “Why don’t you start a photography business?” You yourself may also be thinking the same. However, there’s more to business of photography than just taking good photos. In this video from SLR Lounge, photographer Pye Jirsa gives you five reasons to not start a photography business. Or in other words, five reasons why running a business simply may not be right for you, no matter how great photos you take.
There are quite a few colorblind photographers out there. While this doesn’t stop them from creating fascinating photos, it doesn’t come without its challenges. Canadian photographer David Wilder is colorblind and it was only recently that he saw full colors for the first time. His friend Rachel Jones Ross filmed his wonderful reaction as he put EnChroma glasses and discovered full colors of a sunrise. You can watch it in the video below, but be warned: you might need a tissue. I know I did.
Commercial product lighting is very challenging. Whether you’re shooting stills or video, you never know what type of product you might need to shoot from day to day. It often presents unique challenges for you to overcome, too. Not least of which is satisfying your client’s personal tastes.
Multiple exposures can add a totally new dimension to photos, making them dream-like and surreal. Ben Dauré is a filmmaker and photographer from Leeds, UK, and his work is eye-catching in every possible way. He photographs human eyes and uses multiple exposures, which results in truly unique and breathtaking images. And what’s more, he does it all entirely in-camera. We bring you some of Ben’s awesome work, and he was kind enough to share with DIYP how he creates it.
Did you know that three months ago a meteor exploded 16 miles above the Earth? What’s more, it released the amount of energy ten times stronger than the atomic bomb blast over Hiroshima during World War II. NASA managed to capture the large meteor explosion, and it has recently shared impressive images and an animation with the public.
We’ve seen magazine covers and even feature films such as Tangerine that were shot only with a smartphone. But NBC has recently done what we haven’t seen so far. For the Monday’s episode of The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, the network ditched the usual format of the show and shot the entire episode using only a few of Samsung Galaxy S10+ smartphones.
