Are you interested in everything that Apple has coming out in the near future but you don't want to watch 2 hours of fluff and buzz words? You're in luck because Gizmodo just edited down the entire presentation into just 90 seconds and it's basically all you need to see.

Normally I don't promote software based on their promo video alone but this video was so compelling I had to share it. The ReelSteady plugin for After Effects appears to be made of pure magic, taking cheap looking footage and making it look like Hollywood CGI.
As I am writing this Apple is having a press conference about their new products. The Apple Watch is getting a software update, the Apple TV is getting a total overhaul, the iPhone is all new (and can finally shoot 4k video), but potentially the most exciting news for photographers is the Apple iPad Pro.
When you point a camera at human, 99% of the time that person will strike a pose of some kind. These "poses" are absurd and the longer that these "poses" are held, the more ridiculous and hilarious they get. So why not shoot video and make your subjects wait and wait and wait.
As many of you may know, Mike Kelley has been traveling the world for quite some time, taking photographs of airports (sounds boring but it's cool, I promise). Yesterday he posted a picture of himself on Facebook that is so perfect, I had to make a Photoshop contest with it.
I've never been too impressed with the job of an "actor." I guess I've always thought that most people are capable of acting (pretending), they've just never tried it. I just ran across Benedict Cumberbatch's motion capture performance for the Hobbit and I have to say I was impressed.
I fly with photo/video gear a lot and most of the time I am forced to check at least a portion of my equipment. I usually try to carry on my most fragile gear (cameras and lenses) but sometimes even that isn't possible. After watching this video I might have to throw a fit the next time they tell me that all of the over head bins are full.
Jason Paul and Pasha Petkuns teamed up with Red Bull to produce the most unique freerunning video that I've ever seen. They begin at the upside down house in Germany but quickly move to perspective/depth of field tricks that any of us are capable of reproducing.
Photographing The World BTS episode 6 is finally here and this is the one many of you have been waiting for. At this point in the series I had flown this drone in 7 different countries in snow and rain, and I even crashed it into the side of an ice cave but it kept on working. The streak finally ends in New Zealand when I have my first and only serious crash.
