[Photos] Super Heroes Throughout History

Photographer Agan Harahap has created some rad photos of super heroes (and villians) appearing in historical photographs. Not sure what he did to create these, as I can’t find much more on this guy other than his Flickr stream, but the photoshopping is great. Enjoy! [more]

[Photos] Timing Is Everything: Animal Photography

Animal photography requires a great deal of time, patience, and let’s just say it … it takes a bit of luck. This post has some of the best examples of perfectly timed animal photos which seem like pure luck. Most of these shots are so incredible that if you blinked you would have missed it! [more]

[Photos] Lauren Marsolier’s Recomposed Landscapes

Lauren Marsolier uses all kinds of elements in pictures to assemble and reconstruct non-existent but yet familiar landscapes. There is much to be said and to be appreciated of pure composition. Lauren’s photographs leave me with such a feeling of peace and calm through her balance of color, leading lines, geometry, texture and light. Simply put, these photos are truly art. Enjoy! [more]

[News] You Break It, You Bought It

Below is a selection from a New York Post article that I read earlier this week. At first I laughed at the reality of a photographer being so careless around an ancient piece of art. The laughing stopped pretty quickly though once i thought “What if I had done this and had a lawsuit hanging over my head”. [more]

[Video] “Out Of Tunes” Shot for Canon On The New C300

This short film, Out of Tunes, was commissioned by Canon for the launch of its new EOS C300 camera. Canon’s only criterion for creator Sébastien Devaud was that the video must not be tied to a certain time or place. Other than that, he was free to let his creativity run loose. [more]

[Video] Brilliant Cinema Reel By Brain Farm

Digital cinema powerhouse, Brain Farm, released its new 2012 reel a few days ago online. As a photographer and someone who isn’t heavily involved in video production, it’s hard for me to get excited about video reels. But Brain Farm left me wanting more and more of their footage. I was in awe as I watched this reel. Kudos to the whole BF team, and I look forward to seeing you guys take over the world someday. Enjoy!

Sometimes, the better question is “How NOT to take photos of __________”. Here are some examples of how NOT to take portraits of families while you’re in your basement home studio. [more]

[Photos] The Adventures of Mr. Fly

The Adventures of Mr. Fly is a series featuring a dead fly doing people-type things. You know, like skateboarding, building a snow man, and sunbathing. NOT like texting while driving, singing in the shower, and Googling your own name. The photos were posed and shot by photographer Nicholas Hendrickx. I assume Mr. Fly over here died of natural causes. Otherwise I wouldn’t know what to think of Mr. Hendrickx. [more]

[Video] Sony NEX-FS700 Hands on Video Overview

This week the Fstop Academy released some BTS footage and a short film shot with the new Sony NEX-FS700. On their site they also have a great write up as well as a complete video overview reviewing Sony’s new 4k Super 35mm toy for the video boys. Enjoy!

[Video] Benga’s Timelapse Waveform Music Video

My buddy Paul Mckelvie in the UK just showed me this music video for Benga that he worked on a while back as a runner for the video’s directors, Us. The concept is fantastic and the execution turned out great. Once Us had the idea for the video, the next problem was trying to figure out how to actually do it. There was a lot of math homework, calculating the number of records per second against the frame rate. It worked out to be that 960 records would be the equivalent of 1 minute and 20 seconds worth of wave form. [more]

[Video] Canon 5D MK III vs Nikon D800

The Canon 5D MkIII and the Nikon D800 are two of the hottest cameras on the market right now. In this video commercial photographer Nathan Elson joins up with The Camera Store’s Chris Niccolls to see how these two cameras stack up in the image quality department. Enjoy!

[Video] “Lets Colour” Paints The World

Let’s Colour is a worldwide initiative to transform grey spaces with colourful paint, and the results are quite incredible! This film was shot by Adam Berg over four weeks in Brazil, France, London and India. Every one of these locations has been transformed by a palette consisting of 120 different colours. The people in the film who rolled up their sleeves to transform their community with colour. I love this unity through art. Enjoy!
