Painful Images of Shark Trading in the Arabian Sea

As a resident of a coastal town, I can’t imagine what it would be like if this were happening here. This past summer a friend of mine took me fishing, not for nourishment but for the experience and I ended up catching a baby shark (don’t worry, I threw him back in). The whole experience was pretty amazing. Then back in October I got scuba certified and got to “swim with the fishies.” So when I saw these images taken by Thomas P. Peschak for TIME Magazine of the shark trading business, I was shocked. [more]

Creative Personal Project – “In a New York Minute”

I believe that if a photographer wants to grow in their craft one of the best exercises they can do is pick a particular subject and focus on all the different ways to shoot it.

Breathtaking Landscape Photography By Fakrul Jamil

I’ve never been one to take landscape pictures. I just don’t like any that I take. I can’t seem to get the composition right or lighting. I am a portrait photographer. It’s what I do. However, I greatly appreciate photographers who are able to capture the true beauty of a certain location. Photographers, like Fakrul, are able to do just that. The perfect exposure, bringing out details I would never have noticed had I been the one to take the shot. [more]

A Lion Goes to Town on a Canon 5D Mark II and Lens

Ed Hetherington was photographing animal life in Kenya from a remote on-the-ground setup when a lion approached and found it rather odd…and oddly tasty. The series of images that followed show the lion sniffing, carrying, and enjoying the camera for a while. The lens survived despite getting a little dirty, but the body wasn’t so lucky… [more]

Gorgeous Black And White Photography By Ali Muhammad

I love B&W photography. There is just something about it that captures you and makes you sit there and stare at it. The work of Ali Muhammad does just that. Though im not the biggest fan of the crops on these shots, I can push that aside and just stare. [more]

Foggy Photographs Show The Beauty Of Russia

So many times I have traveled abroad to find a fantastic location for a landscape photo, but the light is terrible or haze isn’t allowing for a beautiful view. Rushed schedules don’t typically lend much help for me to scout when I am in a new land, but no bother for Russian photographer, Boguslaw Strempel. This guy must be a master location scout, because he seems to know where all the gorgeous fog is and the light is brilliant in his Russian landscape shots. Enjoy! [more]

Existence- A Time-Lapse by Michael Shainblum

It takes a lot of patience to put together an extended time-lapse work; I have great admiration for anyone who actually finishes one. “Existence” is a time-lapse project which Michael Shainblum worked hard on for four months. The scenes he picks are meant to contrast the two sides of life, the busy metropolis that many of us live in and the beauty in nature that can be seen when we step outside our city boundaries.
