Wedding photographer Onur Albayrak from the eastern Turkish province of Malatya has recently beaten up a groom. He learned that the bride-to-be was only 15 years old, which resulted in a fight and him breaking the groom’s nose. The local media outlets report that he tried to stop the wedding, and the photographer has received a lot of support since this happened.
The wedding day should be a day to remember, and photos and videos of the event are there to preserve the happy memories. However, some memories aren’t full of love and joy, such as the moment when this couple nearly escaped being hit by a huge tree branch. Luckily, no one got hurt, and Freddy Hernandez of F&J Productions found some humor in the situations. He managed to shoot the dangerous moment, and he even included it in the wedding video.
Thinking of a name for a child can be a pretty difficult task if you ask me. Famous NBA player Stephen Curry and his wife Ayesha got a son on Monday, and they chose a name that can be interested to many of you photographers out there. Even though they are not into photography, they named their baby boy Canon.
The U.S. Postal Service has recently been ordered to pay $3.5M for a pretty strange case of copyright infringement. They have mistakenly used a photo of the wrong Statue of Liberty on a stamp. Instead of using a photo of the original statue, the U.S. Post used a photo of Robert Davidson’s Las Vegas replica, which resulted in a lawsuit.
President Donald Trump’s most recent financial disclosure has revealed an unusual agreement involving Getty Images and Melania Trump. In 2017, the First Lady has reportedly earned at least $100,000 in an agreement with Getty for the use of photos of the Trump family. But there’s a catch: the media are only allowed to use each of the 187 photos in “positive stories.”
Ever since Sony announced the Sony A9, people have been quite vocal about their wishlists for A7 series replacements. We’ve seen two of those appear, already. The A7R III with its massive 42.4 megapixel resolution, and the insane (for its price) Sony A7 III, with fantastic low light performance and crazy fast autofocus.
But not much has been said about the Sony A7S III. People have been asking for it, and they know what they want to see in it, too. But what may actually be coming? SAR is reporting some very cool potential specs that have been passed along to them. There aren’t many specs, but it definitely looks promising for Sony’s more video-centric “S” line.
There’s still no word on exactly when Skylum will deliver its Digital Asset Management (DAM) system, but it is most definitely on the way. Skylum have posted screenshots of the prototype software, and have also announced that it will be coming as a free beta for existing Skylum Luminar 2018 users. They’ll also receive a free copy of the final release version, too.
I’ve been mounting “non-standard” lenses on my cameras for years. Ever since I discovered that I could put M42 lenses on Nikon and Canon bodies I was hooked. Many older lenses offer a look and feeling that you simply can’t get with more modern “perfect” glass.
But deciphering photographs on the computer by searching through EXIF isn’t easy, because such lenses don’t communicate with the camera, so don’t store that lens information. This new cross-platform app, NameThatLens by Georg Fiedler wants to help solve that problem by allowing you to inject custom lens metadata into your images through a nice cross-platform graphical interface.
Drones have become the hit “toy” over the last few years. Sure, they’re an expensive, grown-up toy, but for most of us, they’re still a toy nonetheless. And there is so much choice out there now. Chances are if you’re reading this, then either you own a drone or you know somebody who does and you’re thinking about getting your own. And who could blame you? They’re pretty amazing.
But have you ever thought that maybe you shouldn’t? Tony Northrup doesn’t think you should get one and in this video, he explains why. He highlights a lot of things people just don’t think about when it comes to deciding whether or not they should get a drone. And, refreshingly, it’s actually a pretty sound and logical argument for the most part.
The UK has been receiving some ridiculously warm weather recently. Scotland recently had its hottest day in over 100 years, and we’re still pretty toasty today – at least by UK standards. One has to remember that this sort of weather is so uncommon here that pretty much nobody in the UK even has AC, except in their car.
As it’s such a rare event, we often take to the local parks and beaches to soak up the sun while we can. One woman in Devon, England, though, decided to soak up the sun just as a pair of newlyweds showed up to take outdoor wedding photos. She refused to move, so they carried on shooting around her.
