A Canada woman came across a photo of her mother mourning at one of the memorials for Indigenous children in the country. Discovering that the photo is sold and licensed through Getty Images, the woman raised concern and is even thinking of taking legal action.
Skylum has released the latest update for Luminar AI, its AI-based editing software. The biggest change you’ll see is a whole new feature – Portrait Bokeh AI. As the name suggests, it adds artificial bokeh to your portrait shots in a couple of clicks. But other than that, Skylum has added a few more improvements to the software in an attempt to make it a bit less automated and give you more control over your edits.
2020 2021 Olympic Games in Tokyo have begun. And as usual, the camera companies are there, too. Back in 2016, we got to take a look inside both the Nikon and Canon gear storage to see what they had available for NPS and CPS shooters at the Rio Olympics. Now, we have a chance to see what Nikon’s brought to Tokyo, courtesy of Vincent Kalut.
Sure, it’s cool to just look at pictures of a room full of gear, but I think a look inside the Nikon camp at this year’s Olympics is quite revealing. From what I can see, there’s not a single Z mount camera or lens in sight. It’s all still F mount, largely appearing to be Nikon D6 bodies. What conclusions can we draw from this?
You expect to be safe while you’re at work, but when you work as a crane operator, you have to be mindful of what’s going on around you and where you’re placing your foot. According to The Mirror, Chinese TikTok star, Xiao Qiumei was one such crane operator who apparently died after falling 160ft while recording a live stream.
The 23-year-old social media star had two children and reportedly “regularly shared videos of herself working to her thousands of followers”. Boasting over 100,000 followers, the attraction of such a young lady working as a crane operator sharing her workday is interesting. She doesn’t exactly fit the stereotype.
The issue of which is the “best camera” comes up every single day on social media. Many times. But the reality is that there’s no single best camera out there. If there was, it would be the only camera that people owned and the only camera available. There are cameras out there, though, that may not be objectively “the best”, but they’re certainly the best for your needs.
In this video, Kevin Raposo takes a side-by-side look at the Canon EOS R5 and EOS R6 mirrorless cameras in a very detailed 20+ minute breakdown going over 20 different aspects of both cameras to talk about where each one shines and why you might want to pick one over the other.
I believe we’ve all seen the iconic image of Buzz Aldrin walking on the Moon during the Apollo 11 mission. Neil Armstrong took it near the leg of the lunar module Eagle, and we can even catch a glimpse of it in the reflection of Aldrin’s visor. Michael Ranger had a fun idea – what if we could see exactly what Aldrin saw while his photo was taken? He took the reflection from the helmet, “unwrapped” it, and fixed the color, so we can now see what the scene looked like from the other side of that lens.
It’s not a secret that “photoshopping” existed way before Photoshop. Photos were edited in the darkroom, and masters like Ansel Adams and Dorothea Lange manipulated their photos that are iconic today. But did you know just how far it went?
Have you ever wondered why people in the 19th-century photos all had flawless skin, thin waist, or posture that seems a bit off? Well, it turns out they also had their photos edited to match the beauty standards, just like people on social media do today. In this super-fun video, Bernadette Banner tells you more about it and explores the history of the Victorian era’s “Facetune.”
Last week, Instagram introduced the new “Sensitive content control” feature within the app. It lets users choose how much sensitive content they want to see – all, some, or almost none of it. This means that some people you may want to reach will not be able to discover your work in Explore, and some creators have already complained about it.
A 26-year-old woman from India has taken her own life by accident while posing for a selfie. She was posing with a shotgun last week and reportedly didn’t know that it had been loaded. According to the reports, she accidentally pulled the trigger, and taking a selfie turned into a tragedy.
Sony was expected to announce its new ZV-E10 APS-C E mount vlogging camera on July 7th but the launch event was cancelled over backlash from China due to the date – which coincided with the anniversary of the Marco Polo Bridge Incident. Well, after recovering from that little snafu, Sony has set a new announcement date. July 27th. Yup, tomorrow.
