Pixelmator Pro ‘Avalon’ Update Lets You Use Your iPad as a Photo Editing Tablet

Photography
The popular and increasingly powerful macOS photo editor Pixelmator Pro has released a major update that adds full compatibility with macOS Catalina (sorry Adobe), allowing users of the latest MacBook Pros to use their iPads as a high-end photo editing tablet for retouching.The update—version 1.5, AKA Avalon—was released yesterday and includes a general performance boost, support for macOS Catalina, the unreleased Mac Pro, and the unreleased Pro Display XDR, as well as the addition of AI-powered noise reduction.Support for the Mac Pro and Pro Display XDR seem strange, since the products aren’t out yet, but Pixelmator says the software can now “take full advantage of the power of the new Mac Pro thanks to multi-GPU support and an optimized Metal architecture,” supports the Pro Display XDR’s “true 10-bit color depth and P3 wide color gamut,” and adds a new Extended Dynamic Range Mode that “lets you display clipped details in RAW photos” that are only visible thanks to the display’s incredible 1600-nit peak brightness.

Felipe Ballin Shares the Colorful Spectacle of the Atacama Landscapes

Photography
Got bitten by the travel bug but don’t know where in the world to go? Today’s featured travel and landscape snaps by Brazilian photographer and retoucher Felipe Ballin should give you a good idea: Chile. So, pack your bags, prepare your gear, and make sure you wear something comfy. We’re sure you’ll want to take your time exploring the South American country, making sure not to miss the world-famous Atacama Desert and its surrounds.The Atacama Desert should be on everyone’s bucket list not only because it’s photogenic but also because it’s one of the most geologically fascinating spots on earth. As LiveScience reminds us, it’s the driest non-polar desert on Earth, stretching roughly 600 miles or 1,000 kilometers between the Cordillera de la Costa mountain range and the Andes Mountains. It’s also the oldest desert on the planet. According to a paper in the November 2018 issue of Nature, it has experienced semi-arid conditions for the past 150 million years or so. These facts and all the geologic formation surrounding it make the Atacama a fascinating location for science, travel, and of course, photography.

Facebook Street Photography Groups Suck, and You’re the Reason Why

Photography
In theory, online street photography groups are an ideal way of connecting with other street photographers and learning more about the craft. It’s typical for newbie and hobbyist street photographers to want to connect with others about their craft. This has been going on since the earlier days of Flickr. Typically, these groups share their images, provide feedback, and receive validation for their work. The most common are Facebook street photography groups, and ease of access has made these groups more popular than meeting in person. But like a lot of good ideas, they have the potential to turn toxic, and oftentimes they do. If you’re a member of these online communities, here are five reasons why you should leave them right away.

Photo Hack: Use an IKEA Lampshade to Photograph Reflective Products

Photography
Dustin Dolby from Workphlo is great at creating simple, to-the-point photography tutorials that can really up your product photography game. And in his latest creation, he shows you how a cheap IKEA lampshade is actually a great, all-in-one diffuser solution when photographing reflective products—in his case, a watch.The lamp shade in question comes from the $10 IKEA Melodi lamp, and what’s great about it is that it gives you 360° diffusion coverage for your off-camera speedlights, and a hole through which you can shoot. As Dolby puts it, “it’s much more all-encompassing” than using a single diffuser like he does at the beginning of the video.Once he has his “diffuser” set up, Dolby goes on to play around with various lighting setups, adding fill, doing a little bit of reflecting, and then putting the final product together in Photoshop by compositing the lighting he likes best into a single, final image.

How to Shoot Explosive Toy Photos

Toy photography is a really fun way to create really epic-looking images on a tiny scale. It really hones your skills as a photographer, as lighting and action are what makes this look so dynamic and amazing.

Sony is working hard to keep its image sensor supremacy. The company is planning to show off two new image sensors at the 2019 International Electronic Devices Meeting (IEDM) that should have photographers excited: a 3-layer organic image sensor that will require no demosaicing, and “the world’s first all PDAF CMOS image sensor.”According to Image Sensor World, both of the new sensors were briefly described in the IEDM 2019 program, which was published a few weeks early by accident.

24p Video Coming Back to Canon Cameras in Wake of Fan Demands

Canon ditched the 24p mode in some of its DSLR and mirrorless cameras and, needless to say, it didn’t go over well with a small but vocal segment of their fandom. That is understandable, really, because people hate it when you take away options - especially when it doesn’t see to be for any real reason other than “just because.” Well, the company is backtracking on that decision and is adding 24p back into some of its models in response to consumer demand.

Photographer Pierre T. Lambert got very lucky on a flight from Chicago to Seoul, South Korea recently. While flying near the arctic circle, he decided to just… try taking a photo out of his airplane window. To his surprise, his camera captured the glowing Aurora Borealis that was invisible to the naked eye.The experience happened on the 14-hour flight from Chicago to Seoul, which follows a flight path that swings upwards near the arctic circle. Ahead of the flight, Lambert was hoping that maybe he could capture something cool—maybe the Milky Way—out the plane’s window. But as he looked out the window a few hours into the flight, all looked dark.“At one point, maybe two hours into the lfight, I thought ‘hey, let’s check what’s out there,'” recalls Lambert. “I saw one or two stars and some clouds.”

Two Photographers Sue NYC Parks for Publicizing ‘Unearthed’ 1978 Photos

Two former photographers for the New York Times have filed a lawsuit against New York City Department of Parks and Recreation, accusing the department of copyright infringement after NYC Parks “unearthed” a long-lost trove of photos from the 1970s and then wildly publicized them without permission. It all started back in late 2017 when a conservancy official in New York City was cleaning out an office and stumbled upon two cardboard boxes filled with 2,924 color slide photos. The images were shot between August and November 1978 during a press corps labor strike, and the parks commissioner at the time decided to hire eight temporarily-out-of-work Times photographers to document life in New York City’s parks.

The Negative Reaction to Nikon’s Noct Lens is a Symptom of a Much Larger Problem

Photography
In 2010, the world’s tallest skyscraper was completed in Dubai. Standing a staggering 2,722 feet tall, the Burj Khalifa towered over the next tallest building by over 700ft. It was a feat of engineering, and a beautiful and shining addition to one of the most impressive skylines in the world. But they didn’t consider one issue: feces. In this way, the Burj Khalifa and the new Nikon Noct lens have something in common.With 163 habitable floors designed to hold 35,000 people, the Burj Khalifa’s residents can theoretically produce over 7 tons of poop per day. Why does this matter? Because the Burj Khalifa was constructed without first building the proper sewage infrastructure that such a building required. Without a fleet of sewage trucks, the building would have figuratively collapsed under the weight of its own literal feces.

A community of nerds, sure.

I Made a Camera Rig to Shoot Up-Close Photos of Seagulls

I have had this shot in my mind for years now. Seagulls, lots of seagulls, mobbing a camera. Wide-angle fisheye perspective. Reminiscent of Hitchcock. I thought long and hard and conceived a crazy contraption. A radio-controlled car with a tilt head mounted on it to get right in where I want to. Add to that a seagull food launcher. It quickly became very complicated: seagull food slurry frozen into a sort of sorbet, molded into spheres or scooped into balls with a melon baller, dipped in gelatin, dried and launched through a detuned paintball gun. I am not about complicated, I am about simple, so I thought it through and came up with two alternates: 1. A poncho with a hood.2. A camera built into a seagull feeding station.

Nisi Working On 75mm f/0.95 ‘NOCT-Master’ Lens, Will Nikon Sue?

Canon Video Confirms the Tiny RF 70-200mm f/2.8L is NOT an Internal Zoom

At the 0:45 mark, we get our first glimpse of the diminutive Canon RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM in action; more specifically, we see it telescoping out as the photographer zooms in: While this dashes the hopes of many Canon full-frame mirrorless shooters who hoped that Canon’s optical engineers had managed to work some dark magic in order to make such a small, internally-focusing 70-200, it shouldn’t come as a surprise. When all is said and done, the laws of physics refuse to be ignored.

Photography Cheat Sheet: Exposing for Landscapes

Photography
Previously, we shared some tips for getting your composition right when shooting landscapes. For today’s photography cheat sheet, it’s time to work on exposure with the help of histogram readings. Both elements work hand in hand to create landscape photos that are more than merely snapshots. So, if you’re working on getting better at shooting landscapes, we’re sure you’ll find these tips handy!Today’s photography cheat sheet is actually part two of Digital Camera World’s helpful resource for mastering landscape photography. Now that you have an idea on how to make interesting compositions, this flowchart tells you how to set your camera to get spot-on exposures to match.“Make friends with your histogram and you’ll never take a bad exposure again,” said Digital Camera World, and that applies to all kinds of photography. For landscape photography, the histogram will serve as your guide against overexposing and underexposing your shots. For starters, the flowchart suggests shooting in Manual mode with the ISO set to 100 and the aperture set to f16 (Sunny 16, anyone?). The exposure needle should be at the center. Leaving out the sky (for now), determine if the photo looks too dark, okay, or too bright. Decrease the shutter speed by up to a stop to brighten the photo, and increase it to darken the shot. Adjust as necessary until you get a shot that looks good on the screen.

Nikon 58mm f/0.95 S Noct: $8,000 for the Fastest Nikkor Lens Ever

Nikon has officially launched the new Nikkor Z 58mm f/0.95 S Noct, the fastest Nikkor lens ever made. “The 58mm Noct is a one-of-a-kind lens that pays homage to the extraordinary optical legacy that the previous Noct-NIKKOR 58mm f/1.2 lens established, while demonstrating the superiority and potential of the Nikon Z Mount,” Nikon says. “Created for the most discerning photographers, the new Noct lens is an exclusively manual focus prime lens with an incredible maximum aperture of f/0.95 for a truly dramatic depth of field and next-level low light performance.”Nikon says that it has eliminated sagittal coma flare across the entire frame when shooting point light sources at maximum aperture. The point light sources are captured as tack-sharp points, allowing for better low-light photos for things like portraiture, landscapes, and astrophotography.

Adobe Cuts Service for Venezuelan Users to Comply with US Government Order

If you’ve kept up with the news, the relationship between Venezuelan leader Nicolas Maduro and the rest of the world is somewhat fraught with tensions - not to mention his relationship with certain segments of his country’s population. Largely taking up the helm of Hugo Chavez (sans the charisma), Maduro’s Venezuela is the subject of mounting sanctions and declining crude oil prices which have placed the country in a dire situation economically.

Philipp Apler Showcases the Beauty of Scotland in Moody Black and White

Photography
Itching to shoot the great outdoors? Scotland is a favorite location of many landscape photographers for its rugged coastlines, mountains, stunning vistas, and other natural wonders. If it’s on your list of dream destinations, we think this monochrome series from Philipp Apler will push you to making that shoot happen!Last time we placed the spotlight on Berlin-based Apler and his work, we had a peek at his impressive selection of abstract black and white landscapes in Dark Sand. This time, we look at one of his more straightforward landscape photos showcasing the natural beauty of Scotland. Instead of the more popular route of shooting in color, he presents a dramatic mood through black and white photography. If you haven’t tried shooting landscapes in monochrome or are yet to get some great results out of it, these snaps should give you some ideas.

Researchers Developed a Lens that’s 1000x Thinner than Regular Optics

Photography
A team of researchers from the University of Utah have made a major breakthrough in optics by developing a new kind of flat lens that’s only ten microns thick, making it “a thousand times thinner than regular lenses.” And apparently, it doesn’t sacrifice performance.The breakthrough was published in the Journal PNAS, and it’s primarily being hailed as an advancement applicable to drone use, military imaging, and mobile photography. These lenses could replace the current optics inside smartphones, allowing manufacturers to do away with the dreaded “camera bumps” that have become so common. Compared to the millimeter-thick lens elements inside, say, the new iPhone 11 Pro’s triple camera system, U of Utah associate professor Rajesh Menon says that the lens they’ve developed is “a hundred times lighter and a thousand times thinner, but the performance can be as good as conventional lenses.” You can see a picture of the flat lens below:

Blending Flash with Natural Light (And Getting it Right in Camera!)

Photography
“Why can’t I just do this in post-production?” is what I heard in a recent event I attended on mixed lighting and flash. Many times the answer is that a photographer can’t get an organic look and effect in the scene. Further, why work a long time in post-production when you can just get the image right in-camera? Why can’t you achieve your creative vision without the use of a computer or an app? And why do you need to live by that preset life? In this tutorial, we’re going to walk through the ideas behind blending natural light and flash.When using a flash, a new exposure triangle pretty much happens. Perhaps this throws most people off because they’ve learned what shutter speed, ISO, and aperture do. Well, the good news is that there are changes, but they only have to do with lighting. All the rules you knew before still apply, but there are a few extra steps. The studio offers the most control over lighting, but on a location you’ll need to work with natural light and a strobe. So here’s how the laws change:

Nikon Unveils the Z 50, the First Crop Sensor Z Series Mirrorless Camera

Photography
Nikon has announced the new Z 50, the first DX-format mirrorless camera in the Z series lineup. It’s a camera that’s smaller, lighter, and cheaper than its full-frame siblings. At the core of the 14oz (~0.4kg) magnesium-alloy-framed camera is a 20.9-megapixel DX-format CMOS sensor backed by an EXPEED 6 image-processing engine. The camera has a native ISO of up to 51200 — the highest standard sensitivity of its class — and up to 11fps continuous shooting.Autofocusing is achieved through a 209-point Hybrid AF system that boasts Nikon’s Eye Detection AF feature (the first time it has appeared in a DX-format camera). The AF points span about 87& of the frame horizontally and 85% of the frame vertically.

Shooting 250MP Portraits with a 42MP Sony a7R II

Photography
The latest Sony cameras have the ability to shoot “pixel shift” images that create an ultra-high-resolution version of your scene. But what if you don’t have a Sony a7R III or IV? Do what wedding photographer Ben of Bach Photography does in this video and steal a technique from landscape photographers.In the video above, Ben shows you how to shoot ultra-high-res images using a normal, non-pixel shift camera and a long prime lens. All of the photos in this demo were shot with a Sony a7R II and a Sigma 85mm f/1.4 lens. Ben calls the technique a “hack” but it’s familiar to anybody who has ever shot landscapes: he’s stitching together high-resolution “panoramas” using nine close-up images, but instead of doing it for a static landscape he’s having his model hold still and capturing an ultra-high-resolution portrait instead. This also allows him to simulate a faster lens with shallower depth of field, turning his 85mm f/1.4 into something closer to a 40mm f/0.7 (which is why he shoots his base images at f/2.8).

And while Nikon is not revealing apertures for any of the 9 brand-new lenses that have been added to the map, it’s clear the company is pouring a lot of resources into rounding out the roadmap.In addition to the 14-24mm f/2.8, 70-200mm f/2.8, 50mm f/1.2 and 20mm f/1.8 that were already on the old roadmap, Nikon has added eight new FX lenses and one new DX lens to the map:

Does the Nikon 58mm f0.95 S Noct Really Justify a $7999.95 Price Tag?

Photography
Today, the Nikon 58mm f0.95 S Noct Lens is finally fully announced with detailed specs and all. Perhaps most shocking is the fact that the lens will command a nearly $8,000 price tag. That means that this is a lens that commands a higher price point than some medium format mirrorless cameras. Granted, this is a unique lens. Earlier on, we got to play with it. Besides the lens being pretty much as large as my forearm, it’s a manual focus optic. While I certainly understand the value of manual focus lenses, I don’t really condone them being so rotundas. I mean, it’s massive. The Nikon 58mm f0.95 S Noct should quite honestly be badged as a cinema lens and not a lens designed for stills shooting. I’d expect something like this from Zeiss. But with the Nikon Z series system still being so young, it doesn’t make sense for a lens like this to be launched now. But at the same time, I’m torn to say that Nikon needs it.

Snowy Street Photography in Sapporo, Japan, a Hidden Gem

This city is seriously underrated for street photography.Everyone goes to Tokyo, Osaka or Kyoto, but Sapporo offers some unique scenes especially in winter time. If you like snow, you get plenty of it during December, and especially January and February. Of course, the city isn’t as big and doesn’t get as many tourists as Tokyo, which means no one speaks English, but also that AirBnb’s and hotels are significantly cheaper.Below, I’ll share some of my favorite shots from my 2 weeks in Sapporo:

How Nature Photography Brought Me Back from the Brink of Suicide

Photography
Photography offers an escape unlike any other. It allows us to capture moments, create moments, and interpret the worlds we see through a lens. We document, we study, we create art, and for me, this was lifesaving. Several years ago, in my early twenties, I suffered a huge mental breakdown. It was unexpected, out of control, and hard. Truth be told, I’d been suffering for many years before this but as we all do from time to time, I just pretended my problems weren’t there. I wasn’t pleasant to be around, my head was a very busy place, and I was struggling to cope.Over the course of a few weeks, I began to lose control of my life and lose grip on my reality. I made an attempt on my life. I didn’t go through with it. Thinking back, I don’t think I ever would have — I had too much to lose, but I was lost inside my own thoughts, consumed by anger, paranoia, stress, and depression.

Adobe Blocks All Users in Venezuela to Comply with US Executive Order, Can’t Offer Refunds

Adobe is causing an international stir today after the software giant announced that it would be “deactivating all accounts in Venezuela” due to a US Executive Order issued back in August. The news was quietly published in a support article uncovered by Bleeping Computer, but journalists and Venezuelan creatives alike are baffled by Adobe’s justification.On their support page, Adobe cites US Executive Order 13885 as the reason for this move; however, as several publications have already pointed out, there doesn’t seem to be anything in the text of that document that prevents Adobe from doing business with individuals in Venezuela. The Executive Order—which you can read in full below—has to do with “Blocking Property of the Government of Venezuela” and specifically defines “Government of Venezuela” in such a way that your average photographer or graphic artist should not be included in the imposed sanctions. Yet, Adobe’s support page claims that “the practical effect of [Executive Order 13885] is to prohibit almost all transactions and services between U.S. companies, entities, and individuals in Venezuela.”

Nick Bondarev Introduces Us to the Eagle Hunters of Mongolia

One of the most fascinating topics to explore in documentary photography is how people have retained their traditional culture and way of life. Tribes and ethnic groups are perfect for these, as we’ve previously seen in projects that covered the Toda Tribe of the Nilgiris, the Brokpa Tribe of the Himalayas, the Ladakh locals of India, and the Tengger group of Java, Indonesia. This time, we take a peek into the life of the Kazakh eagle hunters of Mongolia, who keep this fascinating, age-old practice alive to this day.According to a BBC travel story, the art of berkutchi has been around for 6,000 years, among the best-known practitioners being Genghis Khan and Kublai Khan who both kept thousands of hunting birds. The ethnic Kazakhs of today continue to hunt with the aid of eagles as part of their way of life, which is very different and detached from the modern world. They continue to tame and train eagles for hunting on horseback and live off the grid in portable round tents called gers.

A few things can be easily done to lift your compositional game when shooting from the beach with surf action.Firstly, with surf photos, I like to position the surfer surfing into the frame from either the left- or right-hand side so the viewer can see what lies in front of them.

Useful Photography Tip #196: The Golden Hour Look Any Time of the Day

Photography
Everyone loves the look of the golden hour when shooting portraits. But it’s always available for a short period of time. Don’t worry though, there’s a way to get it at any time of the day. Best of all, this is NOT POSSIBLE IN PHOTOSHOP WITHOUT A LOT OF WORK! The reason for this is because you’ll create an organically looking light in the scene and not just use a gradient. Here’s how!We Used:You start off by looking at your scene and trying to imagine where the sun would be coming from. Then simply place the light in that spot. For the best effect you’ll need to ensure that the light isn’t visible in the scene at all. If you’re using TTL, then raise the power up by a few stops. But you’ll get the most consistent output when shooting in manual mode. The trick here is to position it so that it looks totally natural. To do this, look at your camera’s light meter and either underexpose the image or balance it right to the middle indicator. The light is off in the camera left position and it looks like the sun is just starting to go down. This is because the orange gels are coloring the light output. The truth though is that this scene was shot at around the middle of the afternoon! That’s otherwise not possible.

Dispelling the Myths of the Street Photography Process with Sean Tucker

Photography
One of the most common misconceptions about the world’s best street photographers is that they get perfect snaps with every click of the shutter. That can’t be farther from the truth. To dispel this myth and help us understand what the street photography process is truly like, UK-based Sean Tucker talked about his own experience in his latest YouTube video. If you’re in need of some motivation, we’re sure his insights will do the trick.Just because all you see in books, exhibits, and online galleries are the best photos doesn’t mean street photographers get shots like that with pinpoint accuracy. More often than not, it took them hours, days, and even weeks to get their snaps. Yes, just like the rest of us. In the video below, Tucker explains why this myth needs to be busted and how street photography actually entails more or less the same painstaking process for every photographer.

Female Track Athletes Uncomfortable with ‘Inappropriate’ New Starting Block Cameras

Photography
Miniature cameras installed in the starting blocks at the 2019 World Athletics Championships in Quatar may have crossed the line from “cool new angle” into “creepy and voyeuristic,” according to female track athletes.The new block cams were debuted at the championships in Doha, and promised to capture “that intense moment just before a race,” according to the IAAF’s Broadcast Director James Lord. But after seeing the cameras, German sprinters Tatjana Pinto and Gina Lückenkemper lodged an official protest with the IAAF, saying that it’s “very unpleasant to stand above these cameras” wearing short running shorts.As you can see from the video below, the cameras are placed at the front of the blocks. So as runners prepare to settle into their blocks at the beginning of each race, one of the cameras is more-or-less staring straight up between the athletes’ legs.

According to the most recent rumors, Nikon is planning to release the Z50 mirrorless APS-C camera and the NIKKOR Z 58mm f/0.95 S Noct lens later this week. And thanks to Nokishita, we now know how much they will cost.In a Tweet published earlier this morning, Nokishita revealed that the 58mm f/0.95 Noct lens will cost a whopping $8,000—confirming several previous reports from Nikon Rumors. Then, in a separate tweet, they also revealed that the Nikon Z50 will cost $1,000 for the body-only, and $1,400 in a kit with both the NIKKOR Z DX 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 VR and the NIKKOR Z DX 50-250mm f/4.5-6.3 VR. “VR” because the current spec list for the rumored Nikon Z50 states that this camera will not feature in-body image stabilization like its full-frame brethren.

Here’s a Way to Justifiably Get More Money for Your Printed Photo

Photography
Printed photographs are perhaps the most fantastic way to appreciate and understand the art of photography. Most photographers aren’t printing enough. Digital screens have become the default way in which we view photography. They have taken over our lives. But, the moment someone can take in their favorite photo as a print, their jaw drops. Beyond simply printing images, how do you make someone pay attention to it and want to buy one? This is something that requires you to think out of the box. As with most art and media these days, you need to create something folks want to interact with or you need to have interacted with the print in some way. It needs to be made special. It needs to be one of a kind.

Is Annie Leibovitz Right About This? What Do You Think?

Photography
I wrote an article about making your portrait subjects more comfortable and noticed a great comment. “Annie Leibovitz runs an ad on YouTube etc. in which she says she doesn’t believe it’s the photographer’s job to put the person at ease… whats that about?” This is a great topic. This person is talking about the trailer for Annie Leibovitz’ MasterClass, which was a big disappointment. (I recommend her book ‘At Work’ as an alternative.Let’s get the exact quote:“There’s this idea that in portraiture, it’s the photographer’s job to set the subject at ease. I don’t believe that.” -Annie LeibovitzAnnie is right… and wrong. This is entirely situational. Are you photographing a happy couple on an engagement shoot? An actor getting her headshot?

Behind the Scenes: Visiting the World’s Largest Digital Camera and Optical Lens

Photography
A couple of weeks ago, we shared some photos of the world’s largest optical lens, which had just been shipped to the SLAC laboratory in Menlo Park, CA, where it would be joined with the world’s largest digital camera. Unfortunately, we obviously weren’t actually there for the reveal of this record breaking lens, but YouTube channel Physics Girl was.For those of you who haven’t followed our coverage of the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST), here are the cliff notes. The LSST will live on a mountain in Chile, where it will use a 3.2-gigapixel camera and some massive optics to capture a 15-second exposure of the night sky every 20 seconds. At this rate, the LSST will be able to image the entire visible southern sky every few nights.

In either case it’s best to keep today’s photography cheat sheet with you from now on!Winter presents some of the most interesting scenes and visuals to photograph, so we understand why photographers take on the challenge of shooting in this season. Likewise, locations that are freezing cold or covered in ice and snow most of the year (if not all of it), also have their own allure, especially for landscape and travel photographers.

Teens Shoot Photographer Nine Times in Park After Asking for Photo

Photography
Three teens have been arrested in Phoenix for allegedly shooting a photographer 9 times earlier this month after asking him to take their photo, and it was the photos the victim took that led police straight to the suspects. ABC15 reports that the unnamed 33-year-old victim had visited Encanto Park with his camera and tripod at around 9 p.m. on Thursday, September 12th. He had decided to shoot photos in the park after noticing that it has a lake.The three teens then approached the man and asked him to take their photo. After initially stating that he charges $20 for photos, the photographer agreed to shoot a portrait for free.But after shooting the portraits, and while livestreaming his evening on Facebook Live, the photographer heard the teens use a racial slur when speaking to him.

How to Shoot Handheld Focus Stacks for Macro Photography

Photography
Handheld focus stacking is a brilliant solution for many scenarios. It saves you all the troubles of using a focusing rail in the field and provides a maximum of flexibility. Whenever you need more depth of field than you can get with trading off image quality, this is the way to work around it.Have a look at the following set of images: the stack was shot handheld. Although it shows some minor shifts in perspective, you wouldn’t know by the final image. The first image in the sequence is the stacked result, followed by the single photos of the stack.Of course, it’s ambitious to compete with an actual focusing rail, but with a bit of practice and the right technique, creating a good handheld focus stack becomes a simple task that works well, even at extreme magnification ratios.

37 Camera Shutter Sounds in 3 Minutes and 30 Seconds

Photography
Photographer Scott Graham recently put together a video that you’ll either find incredibly boring or oddly satisfying. In preparation for the sale of a large number of his older analog and digital cameras, he created a video showcasing 37 different shutter sounds in 3 minutes and 30 seconds.This is definitely not the first time we’ve seen this done. Lens Rentals “reviewed” shutter sounds in July (Nikon won…), and we’ve been sharing shutter sound comparison videos for many years. Heck, there was even a video of a bird who was able to mimmic shutter sounds, to say nothing of the recent “ASMR for photographers” videos that have cropped up.And yet, we still find the variety of shutter mechanisms over the years, and the unique sounds that each of them make, peculiarly enjoyable to listen to one after another—in this case, both film and digital cameras made by Nikon, Minolta, Canon, Fuji, Yashica and many more, all shot at or around 1/60th of a second for consistency’s sake.

Why Having Too Many Cameras Is a Good Thing

Photography
“They’re too expensive,” my mom would say when the discussion of getting a camera came up. It wasn’t her fault: she was a single mom with one child and we didn’t have much money. When I was a kid, cameras were not as cheap and accessible as they are today. Pursuit of the arts wasn’t a poor person’s game – this was even more so for someone who grew up in one of the poorest parts of the country. But I had a dream, and despite everything I could see around me, I was determined to make it come true.Growing up in the projects – or as we call them in the UK, a council estate – optimism wasn’t a word you would often hear. Life was tough. Broken families, drugs, violence, and poverty were the norm. Parents couldn’t afford after-school activities – they could hardly afford a uniform in which to send their kids to school. Having the opportunity to get into something like photography just wasn’t available. Schools were underfunded, and for a young boy like me, growing up to work in a warehouse was seen as a success.

Photographer Asked to Provide Free Prints for Millionaire’s $12M Home, Responds Appropriately

It’s one thing when a non-profit asks for a freebie, or an influencer offers “exposure” for your services, but what just happened to photographer Tim Wallace is on a whole other level. Wallace was recently asked to provide free prints to a millionaire, who didn’t “have the budget” to purchase them for their $12 million “coastal retreat” home. Wallace shared the text of the email exchange with DIY Photography. The initial request came from the millionaire’s designer, who said that they were “working to remodel their $12m coastal retreat home.” The wealthy client apparently loves Wallace’s work, and would like some prints of his car photography for their entryway.At first, you imagine that this email is about to lead to a VERY healthy commission.

Less than three hours from Seattle, an alpine landscape beckons. Here, you can discover communities of life adapted to moisture in the west and recurring fire in the east; explore jagged peaks crowned by more than 300 glaciers; listen to cascading waters in forested valleys; and witness a landscape sensitive to the Earth’s changing climate in the ecological heart of the Cascade Mountains—North Cascades National Park.The park offers a full range of camping experiences, from a car or RV to a boat or wilderness trek. There are countless backcountry routes and possibilities in this wild land. Intrepid hikers, backpackers and climbers ply the trails of the park throughout the year. However, the more common hiking season stretches from April through October. The driest and most popular time to visit is during the summer months of mid-June through September. Keep in mind that higher elevation trails often remain snow-covered well into July and sometimes August. Precipitation and snowfall are greatest from November through March. The park’s winters are wet and snowfall is heavy. Access is often limited during these winter months by impassable or closed roads, so be sure to check the park conditions report.

Photos of Converted Leisure Garages in the Russian North

In the middle of the 20th century, as industrialization boomed and the auto industry grew, garages started popping up across the USSR. Over time, many of these garages were converted away from their original purpose of housing cars. Istanbul-based photographer Oksana Ozgur visited these garages and documented their unique interiors. From the outside, most of these spaces still look like ordinary car garages.But the insides are a different story.“Dynamic development of North in the 1970s was accompanied by an increasing number of localities,” Ozgur says. “Garages were an integral part of urban planning. Lack of entertainment in very young northern towns and villages prompted local people to look for another means of recreation.

Fujifilm vs Canon Color Science Blind Test: Which Do You Actually Prefer?

Photographer Andrew Branch of Denae & Andrew created a comparison that plenty of photographers will be very interested in: Canon vs Fujifilm color science. A lot is made of Fuji’s film simulations, and Canon users won’t shut up about their amazing skin tones. But when you put them side-by-side in a blind “taste test,” which do you actually prefer?The cameras being used for this comparison are the APS-C Fujifilm X-T3 and the full-frame Canon EOS RP, which both cost $1,300. The comparison images were shot with native lenses and then presented as a true, blind, side-by-side color comparison of both the RAW files and the JPEGs that each camera can produce. The reason for making this a “blind test” is simple enough, as Andrew explains near the beginning of the video.

iPhone 11 Pro vs 100MP Medium Format Camera

When commercial photographer Josh Rossi first came up with the idea of comparing the iPhone 11 Pro against his new Fuji GFX 100, he wrote it off. But he decided to do it anyway, because even if the GFX 100 was going to be the obvious winner, he still wanted to see how the RAW files stacked up.These kinds of comparisons often seem to set our audience’s blood boiling, and believe it or not, that’s not why we share them. Nobody is suggesting that the iPhone 11 Pro is a medium-format replacement, or even a full-frame or APS-C or Micro Four Thirds replacement. These kinds of comparisons—though ridiculous on the face of it—provide a level of contrast that allows us to see just how far Apple has managed to improve their camera system and software.

A land whose frigid hands welcome you as they derive their power by sucking the juice from your camera’s battery. It’s a land surrounded by an ominous and mysterious fog that enshrouds all. Grab your umbrella, galoshes and gloves to ford your way through the cold and snow to make some wonderful images.Five a.m. wake-up calls can be quite disconcerting, especially when setting your eyes upon the eastern horizon and witness a bank of gray accompanied by the pitter-patter of raindrops. Don’t despair—when nature deals a bum hand to your photographic day, good images can still be made. Be prepared, dress appropriately and show some common sense when it’s necessary to deal with poor weather conditions. If you’re not comfortable when out in the field, your photos will depict this. Being cold and wet prevents you from finding the perfect angle or taking that necessary extra step to create the perfect composition.
