“Do what you love and you’ll never have to work a day in your life.” If only I got a dollar for every time I heard or read this. But is it really like that? If you love photography and start doing it for a living, will it truly stop being a job and will you lose a sense of obligation? Landscape photographer Mark Denney discusses this in his latest video. And even though he believes it’s not a video that many people would watch, I think quite the opposite. Not only everyone should watch it before turning their hobby into a full-time career, but it will also give you a lot to think about.
Painting the skies with drones has become a popular activity lately, and we’ve seen some very impressive stuff produced. But this marketing campaign for Porsche, shot by visual artist and commercial fine art photographer Baber Afzal makes for some of the cleanest and most effective drone light painting images I’ve seen so far.
Created in collaboration with Porsche Middle East & Africa, the images were created for the campaign “Reflections of Passion”. The images also snapped up two silver awards in the advertising & conceptual category in the well-respected One Eyeland Awards 2021.
After almost five years in Germany, I’ve amassed an impressive body of work. I love many of the photos I took here, and some of them are even selling rather well. Yet, I have very few images to show when people ask me to show photos of Germany. Because — surprise, surprise — most people are not into architectural abstracts. They are interested in regular snapshots of mundane stuff: streets, shops, recognizable buildings, and what not. In other words, they want to be tourists, not art critics.
If I could describe James Hayman’s photos in a single word, it would be “colorful.” And believe it or not, the majority of his images are black and white! Still, figuratively speaking, Hayman’s work bursts with color: it shows true colors of life and of its different sides.
His photojournalist work has taken James Hayman all around the world. And in this article, we bring you some of his exquisite black and white photos.
We all get stuck in a creative rut from time to time. And when that happens, there are many different ways to spark our creativity again. Inspiracles presents you a really fun one, and it’s called Photography Inspiration Cards. It’s a set of 56 flashcards that will help you learn photography, be creative, and find lots of shooting inspiration.
Most commercials don’t interest me these days. But sometimes, you spot one that really grabs your attention. This one from Verizon called The Reset, to promote their 5G service, grabbed mine. And I’m not even close to being in their service area, living in a different continent n’ all.
The 2-minute video shows what the world would be like if we experienced video game “lag” in real life and it’s just packed with some pretty amazing (and occasionally creepy) visual effects. It reminds me a lot of the early days of World of Warcraft, with glitchy terrain, walking through walls and things not loading exactly where they’re supposed to be.
It took over 50,000 photographs to create the stunning 8K timelapse video above, according to its creator, landscape photographer Michael Shainblum. In it, we see the amazingly diverse and magical landscape that New Zealand has to offer in incredible detail.
Creating timelapse can be difficult enough, especially these days when there are so many out there that you really need to go the extra mile to impress, but Michael’s done exactly that with this one.
Where and what is inspiration? Artists have given the vaguest answers to those questions. In this article, I will try to make sense of this weird concept of inspiration. [Read More…]
We can argue forever whether photo gear matters or not; or what makes a photo a keeper. But today, I want to tell you about a “crappy” photo taken with an even crappier camera. I want to tell you about my favorite image which looks pretty awful, and why sometimes that doesn’t matter at all.
If you’ve listened to Depeche Mode, U2, or Joy Division, chances are that you’re also a fan of Anton Corbijn.

Alex Kilbee of The Photographic Eye guides you through Anton Corbijn’s career highlights but also breaks down his photographic style to give you a better insight into what makes it so special.
