At an altitude of nearly 14,000 ft., the observatories atop of Mauna Kea, Hawaii give a crystal clear view of space through the night sky. The contrast of satellites and lasers against the daunting view of space really makes us feel connected to something bigger. This was a recent Vimeo staff pick and definitely worth a watch, especially in full screen view. [more]
Every week, we ask our eclectic group of writers to weigh in on a question that is asked in the comments from our own readers. The questions can be anything relating to photography, and we invite everyone to participate in our segment called “Fstoppers Answers“. This week, we ask “Corporate Headshots for Local Realtor Firm. Ten Clients, One Headshot a Piece. What do you charge and why?” [more]
Before my trip to Russia in August I wrote about what we should keep in mind when choosing our clients. While in Moscow, I photographed my own best clients and I thought it would be very interesting to find out how we, photographers, get chosen too.
Needless to say, there are many factors that influence relationships between creative professionals and those who hire them. But I thought that interviewing my own clients could be a great case study and we all could learn something from their answers. [more]

It’s always amazing to see childhood photos of old people you know and see how they looked when they were our age (or younger). Sometimes they look almost identical, sometimes they look like 2 different people. Aging is something unpredictable and there is no real way to know how it’s going to affect each face and what is going to be the ‘final result’. In this interesting project, Jan Langer photographed 10 elderly people to match a photo taken of them 50-60 years earlier. Check out the before/after in 10 GIFs below. [more]
When Nikon released the D610, I’m sure that many of you (myself included) initially reacted with joy. “Hooray!” we said. “They’ve fixed the problem of the D600! Nikon made things right!” But then I let things sit for a few hours and I realized, Nikon did no such thing. They didn’t fix anything, no more than Canon “fixed” the T4i when they released the T5i. Hooray? No. Not hooray. [more]
I’m a big fan of clever puns. I’m an even bigger fan of puns done in an original way, which is hard to do these days.

The most impressive part, the graphic design is all done on an iPhone. [more]

The rumor mills have been buzzing, and Nikon has finally answered the rumors with the announcement of the Nikon D610.
