Photos or videos of storms rarely fail to impress. Still, some just capture your attention on the first sight and take your breath away. Tel Aviv-based photographer Sam Jakobson made this amazing photo of a lightning storm that did just that for me. He was kind to share some details and tell DIYP more about how he took this amazing image.
Sometimes, in a flood of images on social media, you see one that just stands out. This is the case with a surreal and dreamy photo Tami Bandel Itzhak has recently posted in one of Facebook groups I follow. Us at DIYP liked it, and we wanted to know more about it. So, we got in touch with Tami to ask her how she took and edited this image that captured our attention.
The worst earthquake to have hit Nepal in 80 years occurred last week, killing over 6,000 people and thousands more are still unaccounted for.
The international community rushed to offer assistance, with Israel sending the largest aid delegation consisting 260 doctors and rescue personnel. Joining the search and rescue teams are three dogs and their handlers belonging to the IDF’s Special Forces K-9 unit.
One of these dogs, who were specifically trained to locate signs of life and survivors in disaster areas, was equipped with a GoPro Camera and offers a unique view into the ongoing efforts to find people buried under the rubble.
Pretty much since the release of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus there have been rumors that the next iPhone will include DSLR-like capabilities.
Apple has taken a giant step towards that goal with its recent acquisition of LinX, an Israeli camera-tech company focusing on computational imaging, and rumor has it that the next iPhone (iPhone 7?) will include the “biggest camera jump ever”.
Setting new standards for color fidelity, HDR and shutter lag are just a few of the company’s selling points, but it is the shallow depth of field, selective focusing and 3D capabilities that make this technology, aiming to revolutionize mobile photography, so important.
Yanai Yechiel was commissioned to photograph a politician running in the Israeli Labor Party primaries. Since it was a small campaign, there was a very limited budget and the photo was to be used only for the internal elections, he accepted the PR company’s request and did the job for a modest price.
You can imagine his surprise, and anger, when 18 months later he discovered the photo was being used as one of the main images in the nationwide campaign for the politician who is currently leading the polls for the general elections and may be Israel’s next Prime Minister.
The developments in this case emphasize the importance of having a written contract, clearly covering all your bases.
The Israeli and Lebanese contestants met at the Miss Universe contest. What happened next will (not) amaze you. They did what most people would do and took a selfie, together with Miss Japan and Miss Slovenia.
Following angry criticism from her homeland, Miss Lebanon claimed she was photobombed by the Israeli.
Is this true and how did Miss Egypt respond to the scandal?
Politicians write the rules, but that doesn’t mean they need to follow them, right? But it is also becoming more common for courts to rule in favor of the artist than it used to…
A Jerusalem court judge had ordered the Likud party, lead by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, to pay 20,000 NIS (approx. $5,000) in compensation due to copyright infringement.
The photographer, Shmuel Rachmani, sued the Likud for $37,500 following its failure to credit two of his images which the Likud had used in a television campaign last year.[Read More…]
