25 Insanely Detailed Macro Images Of Insects

When was the last time you saw a spider, and decided to stop what you’re doing and stare right at it? Or maybe take your camera and do a 1-on-1 photoshoot from few millimeters away? What most of us really do is somewhere between screaming, and jumping on the nearest sofa. But there is a small group of photographers that instead of screaming like a 2 year old, actually go and look for these insects. They find them and photograph them up close, and it’s amazing to see how these tiny insects really look. If the insects you meet daily scare you, wait until you see this set of images.

1000 Miles, 100 Days: One Photographer’s Journey

Photographer Carlton Ward Jr. doesn’t want to save the world with his imagery but he definitely wants to try and save Florida. Specifically, a wildlands passageway that connects the Everglades of southern Florida to the Okefenokee swamp in Southern Georgia. For 100 days in 2012, he, along with a filmmaker, bear biologist and conservationist, crossed the entire state in a continuous path using kayaks, paddleboards, bicycles, horses and their own feet. The visual chronicle was recently published as a book and broadcast as a PBS special.

Cue in animal photographer, Jessica Trinh.  [more]

Personal Project to POYi: Bob Croslin’s “Grounded”

You submit your assignment images each year as a staff photojournalist at a major newspaper and never place in the prestigious Picture of the Year International competition.

Photographer Narrowly Escapes Crocodile Attack

Would you ever turn your back on a river full of roaming crocodiles while your cohorts chucked food into the water? I wouldn’t either, but this photographer at the “Crocodile Bridge” over the Tarcoles River in Costa Rica, got a close look at one of the river beasts while perched in the grass.

Robert Capa said, “If your pictures aren’t good enough, you’re not close enough.” This might be an exception to that rule.

Right Place, Right Time: Capturing A Gorgeous Murmuration In The South Of France

About a year ago I posted a short and sweet little film about the phenomenon known as a murmuration, which is when an enormous flock of starlings gather together in one location and create a breathtaking visual feast. Filmmaker Neels Castillon was out preparing to shoot recently in Marseille, France, when a murmuration took place right above his head and he was able to capture the entire thing in beautiful high definition.

Photographing a Rattlesnake: How I Did It and Why I Won’t Do It Again

Whenever I talk to another photographer the topic of “personal work” always comes up. Usually in the casual form of, “hey, have you shot any personal work lately?” This standard artistic rendition of the workplace, “how’s the weather” is usually brushed off and more enjoyable conversations quickly replace it. However, for me, it is probably better that my “personal work” remains limited, for doing it usually leeds to bodily harm (or in this case recurring nightmares). [more]

What Chernobyl Looks Like Almost Three Decades Later…

Photographer Sergei Gaschak photographed an area deemed uninhabitable to humans: the Chernobyl disaster’s ‘fallout zone.’ While a few people do still choose to live there, animals are more known to have inhabited the area, unaware, obviously, of the radiation that they expose themselves to. Still, few abnormalities seem to form in these animals, apparently, despite the few examples of albino spots and some more serious effects on various swallows. [more]
