National Geographic magazine has been with us for 130 years. Over this time, the design of the magazine has changed and evolved. To demonstrate this change, NatGeo has published a short video that shows this evolution in less than two minutes.
Grazia UK magazine has recently issued a cover featuring Lupita Nyong’o. However, her hair was so severely photoshopped, that the actress spoke out on social networks. She claims that her hair was edited out and made smoother “to fit a more Eurocentric notion of what beautiful hair looks like.” As a result, Grazia UK and photographer An Le apologized for an “incredibly monumental mistake.”
We often argue if gear matters or not, and we probably always will. But photographer Alessandro Barteletti shows us why being a problem solver and having an idea is more important than having fancy gear.
He was photographing a 60-years-old European astronaut Paolo Nespoli for National Geographic Italia. Equipped with only a ten-years-old Nikon D3, a wide angle lens a smartphone LED light, he managed to take the cover photo for the magazine. And he only had 60 seconds to do it, so he had to think fast. Really fast.
After Sports Illustrated and Billboard, Elle Australia also issued a cover shot with a smartphone. The photographer Georges Antoni opted for iPhone 7 Plus, like Miller Mobley who shot for Billboard Magazine. And once again, with fine golden light and skillful photographer and model – the results ended up to be fantastic.
You may argue if iPhone 7 Plus’ Portrait mode is any good. Some people love it and some hate it, but apparently – it was good enough for Billboard Magazine. Photographer Miller Mobley shot the February 17 issue of Billboard magazine, featuring a rising pop star Camila Cabello on the cover. And despite the fact that he generally uses professional and expensive gear, this time he was limited to iPhone 7 Plus and its Portrait mode. And he really did a fine job.
I’m sure almost everybody would love to have the opportunity to photograph the likes of Will Smith for a high profile magazine like Sports Illustrated. I know I sure would.
For the vast majority of us that will almost certainly never happen, but award winning Director and Photographer Michael Grecco recently did exactly that.
What’s the next best thing for the rest of us? You guessed it, a Behind The Scenes video!
Cosmopolitan covers started out with women dressed conservatively. Then they started showing some skin. Then more skin. Finally, they started posing in sexy positions.
As women have earned more rights throughout the years, they’ve also earned the right to wear whatever they damn well please. Or maybe that just sells more magazines?
Ever wonder what kind of thoughts are running through model’s heads as they’re sitting through hair and makeup or on set trying to make sexy, sultry faces while having wind blown into their face? According to Amy Schumer, it may not be as exciting as we like to think it is. Just take a moment to watch this hilarious behind the scenes footage of the comediennes recent Glamour Magazine photoshoot.
Schumer personally narrates the entire clip, giving viewers a laugh as she invites us into the mind of a model at work. Between sarcastic jabs at the over zealous wind machine operator and giving herself whimsical little pep talks, her unfiltered opinion of the experience had us bursting at the seams with laughter.[Read More…]
