Eerie Photo Series Highlights Ruins of NASCAR's Very First Racetrack

Known for its speed and pure adrenaline, it continues to drive ticket sales and audiences from all around the world in the thousands. Thanks to one mystery photojournalist, Seph Lawless, we are seeing some historically outstanding photos from the very first and very forgotten beginnings to what NASCAR once was.

Pepper Yandell Spends 24 Hours Shooting for BMW

Pepper Yandell Spends 24 Hours Shooting for BMW

The one and only Pepper Yandell, based in Dallas, Texas, could be called the rising star of automotive photography for some time now, and for good reason. Yandell produces some of the most striking and commercially viable automobile images I've ever seen, so recently when BMW handed him the keys to a factory fresh 2 Series and told him to get lost for 24 solid hours, it was pretty clear that this rising star had ascended to a new level.

The X100 Collective: 9 International Photographers and Their Visual Stories

Patrice Michellon is a freelance photographer from Paris, France who refers to himself as a passionate pixel breeder. He gave up on clunky DSLR cameras and heavy lenses after health issues and back surgeries back in 2013 / 2014, but he found new desire within Fujifilm’s new x-series of mirrorless cameras. He specifically fell in love with the new x100T which became the main concept for the X100 Collective: one camera and a fixed lens. That's it.

Get Yourself Prepared To Shoot Swimwear Model Photography This Summer

Get Yourself Prepared To Shoot Swimwear Model Photography This Summer

We've had one hell of a cold, long winter this year here in North America. On top of that, I live in Houston, Texas, so this business of freezing rain in March can go die in a fire already. I enjoyed shooting moody styles outside during this extended drabness in recent months, if I'm honest. However, sunny days are coming and I couldn't happier it because summer means outdoor swimwear projects begin, which is one of my favorite styles to shoot. However, having been so bleak for so long this winter, have you gotten yourself prepped for this most popular of fashion and glamour photography seasons?

Chris Miele Photographs Beautiful Futuristic Buildings in Detroit, Not the Typical Urbex Ruins

Chris Miele Photographs Beautiful Futuristic Buildings in Detroit, Not the Typical Urbex Ruins

I’m a fan of Detroit. I love its history, its people, and the current fight within the city to bring it back to its former glory. There’s a movement going on in Detroit that’s often left out of the typical conversation. There’s an art scene. There’s music. There’s life. Chris Miele captured one specific part of Detroit that has become convenient to forget about in a time now popular for abandoned building urbexing. He’s an outdoor photographer who focused on the good still left in the city of Detroit, Michigan. Shying away from the usual "rubble porn", Miele showcases the awesome structures within a city's futuristic past.

How I Create Warm Skin Tones in Glamour Photos Using Capture One and Photoshop

How I Create Warm Skin Tones in Glamour Photos Using Capture One and Photoshop

Another question I get asked quite a lot, and I am only happy to answer on my channel. Achieving glamour skin tones starts on set, of course, with your subject, and how you go about shooting your image, but post work to enhance it is a must as well. I created a 20 min video reviewing exactly what it is I often do, using Capture One for RAW processing and Photoshop CC14 for further color work in regards to skin tones.

How I Add Atmosphere To Some Of My Shots Using Photoshop

How I Add Atmosphere To Some Of My Shots Using Photoshop

A lot of times, what appears to be light effects in my work is actually done in post production, using Photoshop, to enhance or exaggerate existing light sources in an image. I actually get asked a lot about this, and decided I would do a "blind video" on the subject. That is, I would add atmospheric type of effects to an image that I hadn't practiced on, thus showing the full process I go through as I figure out what I want to do with it.

Vince Vaughn and Cast of 'Unfinished Business' Star in Hilarious Stock Photo Series

Vince Vaughn and Cast of 'Unfinished Business' Star in Hilarious Stock Photo Series

We have all come across terribly staged stock images in our careers, and I always cringe when searching simple keywords like "business" on sites like Getty or iStock. It comes with great pleasure to find Getty Images and Fox partnered up to create one of the funniest publicity stunts in preparation for the release of Vince Vaughn's new movie "Unfinished Business." Including cast members Vince Vaughn, Tom Wilkinson, Dave Franco, and others, the shots involve fake laughs and poorly photoshopped faces in each and every photo.
