The Ask First Campaign is not primarily about photography, it’s about consent. But when the campaign’s popular stickers and their message was recently applied to photographers taking pictures of people at a public BDSM fair without asking, the proverbial claws came out.
While embedded with troops in Afghanistan in the late 2000s, war photographer and writer Michael Yon captured numerous photos of the sparkling halo that can appear when a helicopter’s rotors hit sand and dust. Upon finding that the particular phenomenon didn’t have a name, Yon gave it one that honors two fallen soldiers: the Kopp-Etchells Effect.
Photographer and videographer Michael Shainblum just released some 100% unedited 4K test footage and first thoughts from/about the DJI Mavic Pro, and it’s (to use the technical term) freaking gorgeous. So why does half the Internet think the Mavic Pro has a low quality camera?
There’s nothing quite so frustrating as discovering a lens you own has developed a bad growth of fungus on the internal elements. Lens fungus is commonly found in older lenses. It is indiscriminate of brand, build-quality, or price tag. If humidity stays in your lens for too long, the dreaded fungus may appear.
Without a frame of reference, it’s impossible to conceptualize how massive the world’s largest oil tanker, the world’s deepest mine, or a B-2 bomber’s wingspan really are. That’s where these composite photos by Kevin Wisbeth come into play.
In the span of just over one week, DJI and GoPro each unveiled a foldable and ultra-portable personal camera drone. With so much hype surrounding these two products, we’ve decided to do a comparison of features and specs to see how the Mavic Pro and Karma stack up — at least on paper.
Flash is a complicated beast, let’s put it that way.
Say you’ve spent the last few years of your photography journey perfecting natural light, and you know the exposure triangle by heart. Flash comes in to the picture and ruins that perfect triangle, making it more of an exposure square.
This is one of the more inspirational, down to Earth, GAS busting gear monologs we’ve seen. Originally published in 2015, this video by DSLRguide’s Simon Cade explains exactly why he has no interest in upgrading his trusty Canon T3i to something more popular and powerful.
In my mind, there are three important elements of a photograph. Lighting, Composition and Moment. Every picture that I love has these elements, in varying amounts. A great picture may have strength in all three areas, or it may be, for example, such an emotional moment that it overpowers poor composition or light.
But for this article I want to take a quick look at composition, and how photographers will be subconsciously considering many compositional elements when making pictures as well as editing and post processing later.
This beautiful still frame, captured by travel filmmaker Brandon Li in Hong Kong during a drone test, is a complete accident. And as accidental photos go, it falls somewhere between spectacular and “holy crap that’s cool.”
If you ever come across this photo being referenced as an old portrait of scientist Marie Curie, don’t be fooled. It’s actually a 2001 photo of an actress playing Marie Curie — a photo that has fooled a number of countries around the world.
AER is based on the premise that you don’t need a drone to capture sweet aerial shots. Nope, just snap your GoPro into this Nerf football looking thing, turn the camera on, and throw it with all your might.
Cropping a photo to exact dimensions in Photoshop can be a real pain, but there’s actually an easy one-step solution built right into the program.
DxOMark Mobile just got done testing the much-talked-about iPhone 7 camera, and the results should satisfy Apple fans: the new phone’s camera is not only a significant improvement over even the iPhone 6s Plus, it’s the third best smartphone camera sensor DxO Mark has ever tested.
Earlier this week, we showed you some really interesting image editing research from the University of Edinburgh, calling it a peek at the future of Photoshop. Well, it turns out we were more right than we realized.
By day, Christiaan van Heijst is an airline pilot who flies 747 jumbo jets around the world. By night (and often by day as well), Van Heijst is a talented photographer who captures breathtaking photos from his seat in the cockpit.
As a full time professional photographer, I try to remind people that the best camera you have is the one you have with you. Since I have yet to permanently graft a DSLR onto my body, my best camera is often my iPhone. So, is the new iPhone 7 Plus good enough to help alleviate the anxiety I get every time I leave my camera at home? Let’s find out!
The news that Samyang was finally making autofocus lenses was a big deal, but for some reason the company decided to launch the first two lenses in only Sony FE mount. That, it seems, will soon change.
Back in 2013, Facebook opened its first data center outside the United States. Located in Luleå, Sweden, the 900,000-square-foot complex — about the size of 11 football fields — looks like something out of a science fiction film. New photos now offer a rare look inside.
Upon first glance, this photo appears to show presidential candidate Hillary Clinton being ignored by a crowd of people pointing their phones at something out of view to the left. But nope… what you see is selfie culture.
