Highly controversial Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is in the news a lot, but today he’s making photography news. “The Donald” is being sued by two photographers who claim he has used their iconic image of a bald eagle on campaign materials for sale on the Trump website without asking permission or appropriately licensing the image.
Many of us started photography quite innocently— with small compact point-and-shoots, a smartphone, or a disposable film camera. The main advantage was that we didn’t need to think about all the technical settings when we made images—rather, we focused on capturing the “decisive moment”, the framing and composition as well as the emotional content within the frame.
It took 2 months for photographer and filmmaker Mathieu Stern to create his haunting short film “Alone in Paris.” That’s because it wasn’t shot at odd hours when Paris’ streets were empty… every scene was shot at 2pm on a weekday and then painstakingly cleaned up in Photoshop!
Graphic designer Luca Masini of Zerouno Design created a series of graphics that feature questions or phrases that commonly annoy photographers.

The cat is out of the bag… well, maybe not entirely, but it’s definitely peeking its head out.

Here’s an amazing short film titled “The Old New World” by photographer and animator Alexey Zakharov of Moscow, Russia. Zakharov found old photos of US cities from the early 1900s and brought them to life.
Many photographers want to give large format a shot, but carrying a massive 4×5 camera around with you isn’t always practical or realistic. Fortunately for those people, the folks of Wanderlust Cameras have hit Kickstarter with a new invention: the Travelwide 4×5. It’s an affordable, ultralight large-format camera that you can take with you anywhere.

Amateur photographer Carola Becker spent last Autumn photographing hundreds of leaves as they turned from green, to gold, to red, to brown. The resulting macro images, placed side by side, show “the beauty of diversity and imperfection.”
Seeing and photographing the Aurora Borealis is pretty high on many a photographer’s wish list, but if you don’t live in the arctic circle (or don’t have the budget to get there), then capturing this amazing display may have to wait a while. In the meantime, let the folks at Phlearn show you how to fake the Northern Lights using Photoshop.
So, the Nikon D7000 I bought, brand new in early 2014, is a fake. Unbeknownst to me until very recently, of course. Let’s start at the beginning — it being the most logical and traditional place to start.
