Ever since the middle of high school, I’ve been immensely interested in “the process.” You know, that middle bit between point A and point B that nobody but the artist ever sees. I’ve always loved peeking behind the scenes to see where something started and what kind of work and thought went into creating the finished product.
Once Syria’s largest city, Aleppo has been the worst-hit city in the country since the Battle of Aleppo began in 2012 as part of the ongoing Syrian Civil War. Now a series of before-and-after photos reveals just how much the once-vibrant historical city has been marred by war.
The Fuji X100T is yesterday’s news for most of you, I know. Mirrorless cameras represent the latest stage in the rapid evolution of the tools and technologies we use to make pictures– look no further than the tantalizing new Hasselblad X1D if you need proof of where things are going.
Digital cameras are notoriously difficult to design and get right. Where do you start? Who is the customer? What features do you include on the camera? There are uncountable ways to approach a camera development and design program.
One of the latest entrants in the at-home film scanning game is the Plustek OpticFilm 120. Just announced a few months ago and made available for pre-orders earlier this month, the OpticFilm 120 is a professional caliber scanner that can digitize both 35mm and 120mm medium format film. With a price tag of $2,000, it’s not exactly wallet-friendly for the average film shooter, but is quite affordable when compared to other medium-format pro-grade scanners on the market.
If you’ve been wondering about the image quality of the scanner (and whether or not it stacks up well against your local photo lab), Plustek has released a few full-resolution untouched scans.

A high-quality, tiny, ultra-wide angle lens with almost zero distortion… that’s what Venus is promising with the full-frame Laowa 12mm f/2.8 ZERO-D. And they’ve already raised over a quarter of a million dollars from people who believe they will deliver.

The Internet has become the wild wild west of copyright infringement, and the fact that so many photos are illegally republished around without permission and/or attribution makes enforcement tough for the photographers behind them. If you’ve ever shared your images on the Web, there’s one big-name place they could show up for sale without your permission: Amazon.com.
Using only 12 photos and the impressive new Platograph Pro software we told you about on Friday, photographer Ron Risman was able to create what he’s calling a “pseudo timelapse.” 12 photos, 12 ‘moving’ sequences.
For his personal project “Gold Rush,” Los Angeles-based photographer Qingjian Meng combines two different eras. The subjects look like they’re from the 19th century, except each of the 8 people is using some piece of technology from the 21st century.
A group of whale-watchers in Quebec recently had an unforgettable encounter with a giant whale that apparently wanted to pose for some close-up photos. What happened was captured in the 30-second video above.

Instagram just took a page from Snapchat’s book by announcing Instagram Stories, a new feature that lets you share temporary slideshows with multiple photos and videos.
Plotagraph Pro is an incredible new photography tool that can take any still image and animate it into a beautiful looping GIF or video file. No need to shoot a video or capture multiple frames, a single JPEG is all this Web-app needs.
It’s time for a long overdue post. Looking back through my archives, I realized that I’ve covered topics like film selections and scanning film but to date I’ve skipped one really important part: metering and exposing color film.
It looks like Canon is working on something… different. A leaked spec sheet shows the Japanese camera giant may soon release a “W-E1” Wi-Fi adapter that fits inside your camera’s SD card slot.
