The earthquake triggered a massive tsunami that claimed the lives of 15,850 people and caused a number of nuclear accidents, most notably at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant.

[Editorial] Photography: Is It Still A Man’s World?

[Editorial] Photography: Is It Still A Man’s World?
The majority of my generation doesn’t spend a lot of time worrying about gender discrimination and gender issues in their career path, myself included. I actively avoided all the gender studies kids in college, finding their “keg-conversation” a tad too zealous for comfort. However, through my never-ending quest for FS Spotlight subjects, I can’t help noticing that a disproportionate number of renowned photographers are men. “Hm, coincidence?” I wondered. “Or is photography still a man’s world?” My personal impression was that while the world of established, renowned photographers is male-dominated, I know just as many young female photographers as male.

[FS Spotlight] Lisa Hubbard Keeps It Interesting: Chic, Playful Interiors and Still Lifes
When photographers think about their dream shoot, it usually has more to do with Angelina Jolie and a Ferrari than painstakingly positioning a piece of cooked cauliflower. Shooting interiors and still lifes can be notoriously difficult. And when done poorly, it can be downright boring... which is why I love photographer Lisa Hubbard and her work. Hubbard’s work is fresh and quirky, with a style and sense of humor that never gets old. Her impressive list of clients, including Anthropolgie, Absolut, Bon Appetit, Burberry, Kmart, and Martha Stewart, certainly agree. Check out this week’s FS Spotlight with Lisa Hubbard to get the scoop on her life as a successful interior and lifestyle photographer.

[Pics] ISO Performance Of Cameras At The 2001 Super Bowl Vs Today
In 2001 Super Bowl XXXV's halftime show was performed by Aerosmith, 'N Sync, Britney Spears and Nelly. The show was probably shot with the ultra powerful (for its time) Nikon D1H which had a 2.7mp sensor and was said to create "very usable images at ISO 800." Yesterday we had Madonna and LMFAO perform and their show was shot with the Nikon D3s which has 12mp and shoots similar images at ISO 12,800.

[Photos] Insects Appear Beautiful In Stunning Macro Series
It's not very often I see insects and don't freak out a little. Even if only inside my head so as to retain my gruff exterior to my girlfriend. The photos in this series not only managed to keep me from screaming, in fact they did the exact opposite. They gave me a sense of calm and relaxation, a feeling that I have certainly never experienced before when dealing with insects. See the rest of the photos in the full post.
