Miniature photography seems to be very popular right now. The world is starting to come out of lockdown in many places and some of us are beginning to shoot regular-sized people again, but there’s something about photographing tiny ones that’s always a little bit special. And combining them with everyday objects really captures the imagination.
Inspired by the work of photographers such as Erin Sullivan and Tatsuya Tanaka, photographer Chris Hau shows several different miniature scenes in this video, using food and other household items. They’re a lot of fun, and pretty easy to do. In fact, Chris says that the most difficult part was getting hold of the miniature characters.
Looks like Tamron is cooking a new 70-300mm lens for Sony E-mount. Only days ahead of the official announcement, a photo and some specs have leaked for the new E-mount version of the Tamron 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3 Di III RXD.
I’m not entirely sure how recently the above commercial for 7-Eleven was released (I’m in the UK, not many hhere), but when I first saw it, I thought for sure that it was just some pretty neat CG. It turns out, though, that it was actually shot 100% practically and for real by none other than Steve Giralt and his team. Yeah, I know, I was quite surprised, too.
While a computer was used to previsualize and programme the moves, the actual sequence was shot on a Bolt motion control robot arm. I can’t quite tell what the camera was (some shade of RED, most likyle), but the lens used appears to be the Tokina Cinema Vista 16-28mm II T3 cine.
It’s no secret that Leica cameras are expensive. But how can you make it look even more expensive? Well, the new TTartisan 35mm f/1.4 lens is a golden opportunity to add bling to your Leica. And I mean “golden” quite literally, as this lens is 24k gold-plated. To make it even more exclusive, only 200 pieces are available to order worldwide.
Hello! My name is Ben Kelmer and I am a wedding photojournalist. I’m based in Tel Aviv (well, Givatayim actually, which no one can ever find), and I love to travel (but only for short trips if it’s without my wife and kids).
I’ve been a photographer from a very young age. I started photographing when I was 14 after being accepted to our local art school’s film department.
Professionally, however, I started almost 10 years ago as a photojournalist for major Israeli news outlets. When I was 14, the first camera I got was a Ricoh. I later moved on to Nikon and have been with them ever since.
Good quality filters demand a premium, and while the price has fallen over the years, I often get asked why they cost so much. Particularly for the superior glass filters and filter holders. Well, they don’t have to.
Enter the new K&F Concept SN25T1, a 100mm filter kit with 10stop ND costing just over $70.
There are some pretty epic video taken with high-speed cameras: from the smell of rain to light’s “sonic boom.” But have you ever seen you’d see the movement of light? Researchers at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne managed to capture a light beam bouncing between a strategically placed set of mirrors. They used a frame rate of whopping 24,000 fps, and even though it’s short, their resulting video is super-impressive to watch.
If you ask me, animals who steal cameras are always fun to watch. We’ve seen some hilarious encounters of mammals and birds with GoPros, and the funny video we’re about to share with you today took place in the sea. It shows a curious little octopus persistently trying to steal a diver’s GoPro. And it looks like the animal liked it a lot!
