So this was the first sunset I captured in 2012. It cost me $6,612 to take this photo.
I’m going to preface this by saying that this isn’t a lens review article, there are many photographers better suited for this topic, so if you’re after refraction index comparisons and chromatic aberration charts this article probably isn’t for you.
It’s quite possibly the most anticipated camera announcement of the year, and it finally happened! Canon has revealed the long-awaited 5D Mark IV, with a new sensor, 4K video, and some interesting ‘Dual Pixel RAW’ capabilities.
Wedding photographer Jasmine Star is probably still recovering from the first slew of plagiarism accusations leveled against her in 2013; however, it seems the saga is entering Episode II. The folks at Stop Stealing Photos are accusing Jasmine of another transgression.
Edelkrone’s motto, lately, seems to be: “Why not? Let’s give it a shot!” It’s the spirit behind products like their StandPLUS, the “reinvented tripod”, and the strange-but-probably-useful Povie smartphone necklace mount. And it’s the same spirit that, today, brings us the Edelkrone Wing.
At first glance, it seems like an easy thing to achieve: how hard can it be to get a great looking gelled background in your portrait?
We definitely suggest reading this particular rumor with the mouse in one hand and a salt shaker in the other. It seems Sony is considering adopting a new RAW format to take full advantage of the improved dynamic range and resolution of image sensors coming down the pipe.
As portrait projects go, Dylan Hamm’s series Naked Faces is strange… and creative. He shot two passport-style headshots of 43 different strangers—one with, and one without any clothes on. Can you tell which is which, just by looking at the micro-expressions on his subjects’ faces?

Photography is a presentation medium. At its most basic, a photograph is simply a means to communicate an idea to an audience. Sometimes the idea is a memory or a moment, other times it‘s an expression of a feeling or intention.
The 5D Mark IV might be the big release of the day, but it’s certainly not the only news from Canon this Thursday. In addition to the fancy new camera, Canon also revealed two new L lenses—the EF 16-35mm f/2.8L III USM and the EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II USM—and an interesting SD card-shaped W-E1 WiFi adapter.
It might sound like a provocation, but it’s not. Notice the little difference: I am not asking if you have got the brains for street photography, I am asking if you have got the brain for it. The single “s” in brain(s) is the difference. A huge difference.
Mahmoud Raslan’s photograph of “the boy in the ambulance” from Aleppo has struck a chord with viewers in a way that we haven’t seen since Nilüfer Demir’s image of 3-year old refugee Alan Kurdi in 2015. The photo and accompanying video of 5-year old Omran Daqneesh covered in dust and blood and sitting motionless is a stark reminder of a desperate war that started the year he was born.
Unless you have the dough to get a lab scanner, it is a painful process to scan your own film. Luckily one day all the photo labs dumped their Pakon F-135 to the market, and I remember you could get one for ~$250 a pop.
A few more photos that allegedly show the Hasselblad-branded camera add-on (or ‘MotoMod’) for the MotoZ and MotoZ Force phones have surfaced, giving us a closer look at the next partnership between a smartphone maker and a major camera brand.
Watch out Nikon, that 105mm f/1.4 might not be such a “novel” lens forever. The latest lens in what has been called “a never ending parade of optical formulas” from Tamron is a 115mm f/1.4 VC patent that’s bound to get some portrait photographers’ hearts pumping.
There was a freezing 4°C (39°F) dunking pool at the freediving world championships in Turku, Finland… and photographer Daan Verhoeven did not want to let it go to waste. As the competitors took their shocking dunk into the freezing cold water, he was there to capture their reactions.
The Canon 5D Mark IV is about a week away from its expected announcement … cue massive photo and specs leak.
I’m like a lot of photographers. I want to shoot more often. And one big reason I don’t shoot as much as I like is that I waste too much time reading about gear.
