I love when artists create something that hasn't been seen before, especially when it is something as amazing as Rauzier's hyperphotos. These images (rather, pieces of art) take panoramic photography to the next level. Most are made of hundreds, if not thousands of images, and incorporate a dream-like twist in each one. If painting has M.C. Escher, photography has J.F Rauzier.
Around this time last year, I was asked to shoot a wedding for a young couple getting married in Charleston. I came to find out that the groom's father was none other than Nikon advertising photographer Mark Alberhasky. Mark and I hit it off instantly so when I found out he has been shooting wildlife with Nikon's V1 mirrorless camera, I knew he would be perfect for Fstoppers Mirrorless Month. Mark explains how mirrorless cameras can out perform dlsrs
In 2005 Photographer James Balog began a project of immense scale and historical importance; to capture the changing climate of the earth by shooting images of melting glaciers. The documentary "Chasing Ice" tells his story, and shows the technical challenges he faced, like dealing with harsh temperatures and highly remote locations. This trailer gives us a sneak peek of the final movie, which will be released in November.
Some of the latest images sent over from Mars by the Curiosity Rover give a little glimpse into the past of the planet. The rover appears to have shot pictures of an old stream bed. By comparing to equivalent scenes from earth's stream beds, scientists judge that the former stream used to flow at 3 feet per second and was between ankle to hip deep. Check out the pics!
These postcards produced by art director Akos Papp were made using Google maps satellite view. With Apple taking a big hit these past few weeks over the release of their 3D Map App with the iOS 6 operating system, it's safe to safe we can still put them to use for something. This time, for the sake of art.
What does it take to turn a blue BMW M5 into a bullet? A little of this, and a little of that, but mostly it takes a team of talented individuals with a dream and the know-how. With a limitless imagination, impeccable understanding of light and meticulous attention to detail, photographer/director Marek Glaser and Big Block digital productions took the imaginary and made it reality.
Alright, seriously. I keep telling myself that I'm sick of timelapses, that I don't need to watch five minutes of clouds, or that I don't need to watch a million cars stream past at lightspeed. We get it, we've seen a million sunsets, we've seen the stars pan overhead as the camera moves on a dolly. And then I watched 'Very Little Stars' by Ben Wiggins, and I took it all back. Oh my goodness. This movie is
Every so often you come across a photo, stare and then boldly exclaim, "I will photograph that someday!" For instance my photography bucket list has on it shooting the Holi Festival in India, Pingxi Lanterns in Taiwan, La Tomatina in Spain and just recently I added light painting with the spectacular Bioluminescent plankton that emit a bright glowing blue color in the ocean water.
Stressed at work or need a break? Seriously, put your feet up and enjoy. There's nothing that will relax you quite like some gorgeous scenes of nature put to some dulcet piano notes. John Eklund took this series of time lapses at multiple locations throughout the pacific northwest shooting around 260,000 images.
Photographer/Diorama Artist Matthew Albanese constructs and photographs unreal real looking landscape scenes using readily accessible materials. Scroll through some of his work and be amazed at their realism, effort and the materials. Can you figure out what Matthew used to make each scene before reading it? No, no you can't.
I have always been in envy of natural photographers who seem to perfectly frame a shot so that the final composition flows beautifully while cropping out necessary or distracting elements. Daniel Beltra is one such photographer who specializes in aerial photography involving environmental issues.
Photographer Bob Carey has taken the fight against cancer into his own hands with the most unusual of tools: a man-sized pink tutu. By creating a combination of whimsical and emotionally charged self-portraits, Bob's project tugs at the heartstrings and spreads awareness in a humorous, yet touching, way. Check out the amazing photos and story in this video, which was produced by PocketWizard. You can get more information about the project and see more photos at thetutuproject.com.
