Back in February 2016, skier Nicolas Vuignier captured the worlds imagination with a video shot using his “Centriphone,” a plastic glider that lets you swing a camera around your head and have the lens constantly pointed toward you. For their latest music video, Indie pop duo Matt & Kim created their own centriphone… using a wooden coat hanger and some fishing wire.
No, you didn’t read the title wrong. Although it might seem like a bit of a strange concept, there is such a thing as an “underwater river,” and Russian underwater photographer Anatoly Beloshchin actually got a chance to photograph this amazing phenomenon.
I’m old. Believe me, I know it. I’ll be 70 in a few months. That fact may make it hard for you to take me seriously, but bear with me for just this post. With age comes wisdom, right?

Want to see the power of ReelSteady’s software based image stabilization for After Effects? The video above shows a crazy wingsuit stunt by BASE jumper Graham Dickinson and his friend Dario. The GoPro HERO footage has been stabilized using ReelSteady as a “stress test.”
VSCO has announced that it’s redesigning its popular mobile camera app for both iOS and Android. The new app will be focused on both creating and consuming content, increasing the app’s strength as a photo sharing social network.

I shoot with a Sony a6000, a Sigma 19mm f/2.8, and a vintage Helios 44-6. My entire kit cost me less than $500 (second hand) and technically, it sucks.
I was editing some images that I took last week in New York City, including some taken from the observation deck of the Empire State Building. Then I remembered that I had taken some shots of the same view from the same location, 15 years ago.
My name is Justin Tierney, and I’m a time-lapse photographer based in Japan. The opening section of my latest time-lapse project features nocturnal Japanese cityscapes.
