The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards brings funny photos and wildlife photography together, which means: it brings you lots of photos of funny animals. How can it be better than that? The 2019 competition is still on the run, but the team has shared some of the best entries so far with DIYP. Check them out below and have a good laugh just like we did.
If you are a fan of how Peak Design does their bags and clips, there is a good chance you will connect with their tripod as well.
The travel tripod has some features that set it apart from other tripods. (I have yet to try one, so I am trusting Peak Design’s press release on this).
Designed for mobile creators, Premiere Rush (formerly “Project Rush“) is designed to allow you to quickly edit videos for social media without all the hassle and fuss of a full-blown editing application. It’s been available on iOS, Windows and Mac for a while now, but today, Adobe has today announced that Premiere Rush has come to Android devices.
Although, it hasn’t come to all Android devices. It’s only available for devices running Android 9.0 (Pie) or later and only on one of a dozen different phones.
With all of the rampant excitement around the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4k (BMPCC4k as if that’s easier). The one question on everyone’s mind is: Can the BMPCC4K replace cinema cameras? Can it REALLY be compared to an Arri Alexa or cameras of that caliber?

I get emails on a monthly basis asking for advice on where to get started with wedding photography, can I give someone any advice on getting started, can they tag along to a wedding to learn or come and second shoot for me.

So I thought I’d put all of my thoughts down here, a mixture of advice, lessons I’ve learned along the way and things to consider before you get started, or make that next step!

When you take a selfie, when is it ready to be posted on social media? How much editing it needs before you share it with your followers? British photographer John Rankin Waddell, aka Rankin, explored this in his project Selfie Harm, and he ended up with alarming results.
Rankin photographed fifteen teenagers with barely any makeup and gave the portraits a simple, natural aesthetic. Then he asked boys and girls to edit their own photos until they felt they were social-media ready. The resulting photos were scary and worrying, showing just how dangerous image altering can be for young people’s mental health and self-image.

Imaging Resource recently published their interview with Ricoh execs at the CP+ trade show in Tokyo. They spoke about Ricoh’s plans for Pentax. But in amongst the conversation was Ricoh’s thoughts on the whole mirrorless vs DSLR debate.
