Over it’s lifetime, it’s become synonymous with capturing images of people, places and wildlife that show us the undiscovered or hidden side of our increasingly homogenized world. [more]

Voyager 1′s Journey Through our Solar System in Photographs

In a recent Reddit AMA to commemorate the craft’s leaving of our solar system, a Voyager 1 team member (name unverified) commented that all cameras were turned off permanently after the iconic “Pale Blue Dot” photograph was taken on Valentines day in 1990. Between then, and its launch date on Sept 5, 1977, hundreds of thousands if not millions (exact number unknown) of photos have been taken by the craft on its journey. These are just a few.

Why I Spent My Money To Rent a Helicopter on 9/11

Exactly one week ago we marked the 12th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks which resulted in the deaths of nearly 3,000 people. As they do every anniversary, The Municipal Art Society of New York created two vertical columns of light (“Tribute In Light”) right next to the World Trade Center in remembrance of the Twin Towers using 88 powerful searchlights pointing up to the sky. Every year I photograph the Tribute In Light from a different spot, and this year, for the second time, I decided to photograph it from above. From a helicopter. Here is how and why I did it. [more]

Looking For a Sizzling Location to Shoot? ShotHotSpot Will Hook You Up

In my work, I do a lot of traveling for shoots and one of the most tedious and difficult parts of going to a new place to produce a shoot is the location scouting. There is a reason that people can turn location scouting into a lucrative profession. It is very time consuming, costs money (gas) and is constantly changing (because of season, construction, whatever). [more]

A Simple Trick To Shoot Better Sunsets That Almost Anyone Can Do

While on a kayaking trip in the Great Lakes, I stopped just after sunset to shoot some images on the beach. The sky was still bright and very saturated, while the sandy ground was losing light and getting dark in my exposures. My kit was small, and I had no graduated ND filter, but I came up with something that worked well in a pinch. [more]

Rescue Highlights By Using a Luminance Mask

Many times when shooting objects in an uneven light (usually outside), we have to choose if we want to expose for the darker areas, or for the brighter areas. This means part of the image will be exposed ‘correctly’ while the other parts will be overexposed (or underexposed). There are few solutions that can help us avoid these issues like shooting HDR or adding artificial light. But these solutions are not always handy and not always something that can be done. This great tutorial shows you how to fix overexposed highlights in only few minutes. [more]

This Beautiful Lightning Storm is Really a Miniature Fake

Lightning is hard to photograph. You have to have patience, solid timing and a general acceptance of the possibility of getting soaked. If that doesn’t really resonate with you there’s always the route that Matthew Albanese chose. Rather than go through the stress, waiting and danger of shooting an actual lightning storm he [more]
