Ep. 91: Shooting in Public and Knowing Your Rights

Want to see the composition concepts used in famous scenes from famous movies? Raymond Thi of Composition Cam has been taking still frames and overlaying neon pink lines to show things like symmetry, thirds, quadrants, triangles, diagonals, and more.

It took Drew Geraci over at District 7 Media over 80 hours of post-production to create his latest China timelapse. That’s because he took all 2500 individual frames he had captured and turned them, one by one, into paintings using the Prisma app. The result is mesmerizing.

Here’s another one for the “probably never going to get made but WOW” file. A month and a half after Canon patented a massive 1000mm f/5.6 DO lens and two months after the crazy 28-560mm f/2.8-5.6 patent, the company is at it again. This time they’ve patented an EF 40-800mm f/4.5-5.6!

Photographer Oliver Hihn thinks its a shame that so many old cameras sit around on shelves and slowly gather dust, so he decided to take his dad’s old Elbaflex VX 1000 35mm SLR out on a hike. Instead of shooting film photos, he decided to photograph landscapes framed in the waist-level viewfinder of the camera.

It’s not all crazy patents today on the rumor mill, this week also brought with it some tantalizing teasers about three of the biggest camera manufacturers. We have a “first” from Canon, a new lens from Nikon, and a new memory card from Sony to tell you about.

For street photography the choice of cameras and lenses is, simply put, huge. So where do we start? What IS the best lens for street photography?

I arrived in Ireland a couple days ago, and I have been taking plenty of photos along the way. I’ll post them in future articles, but there is something more important to discuss for now: the dangerous, idiotic behavior I saw at the Cliffs of Moher.

A couple of months ago, BuzzFeed’s “Try Guys” released a video in which they got Photoshopped to look like ideal men’s body types as seen in movie posters and magazine covers. But today, they kick it up a notch: they’re being Photoshopped not like men… but like women.

The next time you roll your eyes at yet another photograph of two couples embracing on social media, consider this: they are more likely to remain together than a couple who doesn’t plaster their love across the Internet.

Shoot large numbers of ultra-high-res raw photos on a daily basis? Lifelogging every moment in 4K? Want to store all your eggs in one basket? If you answer yes to any or all of those questions, Seagate has a new hard drive for you. The BarraCuda Pro 10TB lets you store a whopping 10 terabytes of data in a single drive on your desktop computer.

If you follow just about any major news outlet, you’re bound to have seen the photos of “Fukushima Kid.” We published them ourselves. But today the photographer behind those shots, Keow Wee Loong, is on the defensive as another photographer accuses him of lying about the photos in search of fame.

Photographer J P Goodridge was whale watching near Sydney, Australia, yesterday when he captured this photo of a lifetime showing a humpback whale explode out of the water right next to another little whale watching boat.

This video needs very little introduction beyond the headline except to say that yes, it is exactly as cool as it sounds.

Worthy challengers to Adobe Photoshop don’t come around very often, so that’s why Affinity Photo got the photography world excited when it was launched in 2015. Now the award-winning pro image editing app is getting another major update. Version 1.5 will include a number of powerful new features.

To those who may hire a portrait photographer:

As I write this, a guy outside my window is painting the exterior of my house. I had a hard time choosing a color, and I hope I chose well. I’d hate to screw that up.

Lighting company Aputure just released a light that we’re pretty sure will make it into many (many many) photographer and videographer gear bags. It’s called the Amaran M9, and it’s tiny, ultra versatile, and costs only $45!

“The Exposure Triangle” is a catchy phrase meant to encompass the three factors which affect the exposure of a photograph of a scene with a given amount of light. It’s often given to new photographers as a learning aid.

This complex, built in the end of the 19th century, was on my wish list for a very long time. When the opportunity arose to visit it, I grabbed my chance and carefully planned the exploration.

A woman was fishing at Hesperia Lake in Southern California on Wednesday when she reeled in a professional Nikon DSLR. After a search, she eventually discovered that it belonged to a photojournalist who was attacked while covering a story.

Before marrying President John F. Kennedy and becoming the First Lady of the United States, Jacqueline “Jackie” Kennedy once earned $42.50 per week as the “inquiring camera girl” for the Washington Times-Herald. Some of her personally used camera gear is now for sale on eBay.
