There are many musicians who rock behind the camera as much as they do on stage. We already wrote about some of them (twice), and one of them is Lenny Kravitz. Most people know this talented man as a singer, multi-instrumentalist, and even an actor. But in this video, T. Hopper focuses on Kravitz as a photographer and his career part in this particular field.

It’s that time again. Insta360’s announced another camera. This time it’s the Insta360 X3; the successor to the Insta360 ONE X2 (review here) – although they’ve dropped the “ONE” bit from the naming system now. But how does it compare to its predecessor? What’s different? What’s new? Is it really any better?
I’ve had the opportunity to test one for the last couple of weeks and in some ways, it’s definitely an improvement over the ONE X2. It comes with some very useful new features including upgraded 1/2″ sensors that shoot up to 72-megapixel 360° stills, 8K timelapse, a larger touchscreen display and some new shooting modes.
I have only recently begun to discover astronomy, but it’s an even more expensive hobby than photography. So, I’m really happy to see that you can take stunning photos even through a tiny consumer telescope. And I mean, really stunning! This 550-megapixel photo shows star clusters and nebulae in great detail, and it was taken with a tiny consumer telescope that’s soon going to hit the market.
I love it when photos and music intertwine and inspire each other. Both music and photography are important parts of my life, even though I only listen to music, I don’t make it as I do with photos. So, I am amazed by talented people who can do both things equally well.
A while ago, I created a list of ten actors/actresses who are also photographers and ten musicians who also rock at photography. Now I bring you nine more of them who appear to be as passionate about taking photos as they are about music.
Canadian brand Canada Goose sells high-quality (and thus pretty expensive) winter clothing. Some of it could be interesting for outdoor and landscape photographers who spend a lot of time in harsh conditions… But there’s a particularly interesting jacket aimed at photojournalists. And its price is mere $850.
April’s fools is a day of fun but also a day of caution for anyone getting near the internet. If you look at some of the past jokes, you’ll see that some of them came true. (Heck, DIYP once got the world to believe that we own the term Bokeh.)
If you are not sure if you are seeing a real new story or being hoaxed, head here and check to see if we covered this joke. Check back as this page updates every 30 minutes. Did we miss anything? let us know.
Over the years I’ve joked frequently with my best friend Marc and my brother about things that are cocky in life. We sort of have this ongoing dialog pointing out cocky things and cocky people in the world, which is pretty cocky of us. They’ve given me a lot of shit since I became a photographer a decade ago pointing out how cocky our industry is and poking fun at me for my share of cocky moments like having an army of scarfs, our bio picture, and much much more. Typically you think of athletes or celebrities as being cocky, and of course chefs, but don’t discount photographers.
I figured it was about time to address these cocky aspects of photography. Of course, there are always exceptions to the rules so I’ve pointed them out. If I offend you here please don’t take me serious, I’m just a silly dude saying silly things. If you are guilty of 3 or more of these things, consider yourself cocky.
So, without further ado, here is the 2017 cocky list:
Everyone is a photographer, and that includes celebrities. But some celebrities take their photography more seriously than others, investing both significant time and money into developing their craft. Here’s a small sampling.
As camera makers struggle to innovate, consumers are finding little need to upgrade. The market is slowing to the point of inertia – manufacturers need to take a leftfield approach to stay competitive
In February, Nikon – the world’s second-biggest camera manufacturer by market share – published a notice of ‘recognition of extraordinary loss’. The statement admitted that, over the last nine months of 2016, the company had lost $260m. Following this announcement, Nikon’s share price plummeted 15 percent and loyal customers were sent into a panic.
In my early teenage years I loved nothing more than gaming and going to LAN parties every weekend. Unreal Tournament, Battlefield 1942 and Counter-Strike were my favorites back then. Although I also liked strategy games like Warcraft 3, I spent most of my time playing Counter-Strike with my friends till 2AM. Although I’m not that much of a gamer anymore besides the occasional SNES nights, a crazy thought crossed my mind. If street photography were a game, it would definitely be a first-person shooter.
