Photographer Creates Hilarious Photo Series Using Marvel Characters in Unique Situations

Indonesian born photographer Edy Harjo has created a series unlike any other; complex in setup yet seemingly so simple in its comedic genius. Using characters we all know and love from the Marvel and DC Universe, he has created stories far beyond those we have read in the comics or seen in recent movies. Only his creative mind could have Thor, Hulk, Wolverine, Spiderman, and even the Joker peeing against a wall in an alley.

Affinity Photo: First Impressions and a Call to Action

It's already been a couple weeks since Serif announced the release of the Affinity Photo beta. I, along with literally thousands of others, have downloaded the program and started putting it through its paces, trying to fit it into my own personal workflow. In this little first impressions review I'll focus on Affinity Photo as a raw converter, a basic retouching platform, and put it up against the big dogs: Affinity versus Lightroom, and Affinity versus Photoshop.

The New Style of Wedding Photography and Tips on How to Embody It

The New Style of Wedding Photography and Tips on How to Embody It

The phrase "destination wedding photographer" never held much meaning to me, other than the rare couple who I assumed was eloping in Bora Bora. Lately that phrase is turning into something completely different and it's being referred to more as "adventure photography." It's slightly different in the fact that these people aren't necessarily having destination weddings because they're still being planned in their home states.

Save Big on Photography Gear With Academic Pricing

Save Big on Photography Gear With Academic Pricing

After 13 years of being involved in academia as either a student or instructor, I stumbled upon possibly the best way to save big on photography gear: educational pricing discounts. For years I have been aware of discounts on software and other items from websites like JourneyEd and Academic Superstore, but it wasn't until very recently that I found some of the biggest brands in lighting — Profoto, Elinchrom, and Broncolor to name a few — offer great discounts for students and teachers.

The Trouble With Tech or Why You Should Print Your Photos Else Risk Losing Them Forever

The Trouble With Tech or Why You Should Print Your Photos Else Risk Losing Them Forever

I am hardly the first person in the industry to prattle on and on about why you should print your photos, but I think it is worth mentioning, here today, some things you may not have considered about your digital files. After all, either by intent or just circumstance, we've all been led to believe that our digital files are "safe forever", especially if we've gone to great lengths to back them up on secure drives or on cloud servers and such. But, are they really all that safe?

'Inversion Immersion' - Incredible Time-lapse Film Shows the Beauty of Portland Being Swallowed by Fog

As photographers and filmmakers, sometimes the most incredible scenes we capture happen when we least expect them. Such was the case for 19-year-old talent Andrew Studer, when he ventured to downtown Portland, Oregon to shoot a sunset. The beautiful fog that engulfed the city after the sun went down convinced Studer to stick around, and the resulting time-lapse film is an incredible display of weather in the Northwest’s second most populated city.

Review: The Meike MK-DR750 Battery Grip for the D750 Is Fantastic, and It's Not Even Because of the Grip

Review: The Meike MK-DR750 Battery Grip for the D750 Is Fantastic, and It's Not Even Because of the Grip

I haven't had the Meike MK-DR750 Battery Grip and Wireless Remote for long, but I can already tell I'm definitely keeping it. Not only does it fit well enough and do everything as promised, but it also comes with a wireless 2.4GHz (not infrared) remote control that can trigger the Nikon D750 to which it's attached. Meanwhile, Nikon's grip costs upwards of $350, and their wired remote cable release timer clears the $150 mark. Naturally, there have to be a few caveats for a grip and remote package to come in at an astoundingly low $80, but I was hard pressed to find any at all.
