There is a lot you can do with a slow shutter speed, but one of the most common uses for a slow shutter speed in landscape photography is to smooth out moving water. In the video below, photographer Andrew Marr heads to Tarraleah Falls in Australia for midday landscape photography. The waterfall presented numerous challenges. There was a fence which limited composition options and the light was quite bright. Marr likes to start with his Nikon D850 camera set to ISO 64, which is its native base ISO, and his lens at f/8.

Photographer and educator Serge Ramelli recently used a ND10 neutral density filter to do long exposure photography at sunset in Los Angeles. In the video below, we join Ramelli as he shoots before heading back to his studio to run through both color and black and white editing processes for his long exposure images. When in the field, in addition to using a neutral density filter, you can slow down your shutter speed even further by using your camera's lowest ISO and stopping your lens down further. While you may end up having... [...]

At least three people are confirmed to have lost their lives so far amid record-setting floods affecting parts of Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri, and other nearby states. Thousands of people have been asked to evacuate, and many have been away from their homes for days in hard-hit Nebraska, following last week’s “bomb cyclone” weather system that dropped huge amounts of precipitation—adding to existing troubles from heavy snowmelt and ice-choked rivers. Dams and levees were overwhelmed, roads have been washed away, and some neighborhoods, farms, and military bases now sit in water up to eight feet deep. Some of the rivers in [...]

I had a chance to sit down with two top Fujifilm execs (Toshihisa Iida and Makoto Oishi) at the recent CP+ 2019 show in Yokohama, Japan, to ask them about everything from the state of the industry to my usual tech-geeky questions about underlying technology. I've been wanting to write about some of the details of Fujifilm's advanced autofocus tech ever since the X-T3 was announced, so got in some good discussion about that here. We also saw some very cool-looking lens mockups and discussed their coming 100-megapixel... (read more) [...]

Last Thursday, a massive power outage struck across much of Venezuela, affecting huge parts of its infrastructure, from clean water and food storage to medical care, communications, and more. Amid a years-long economic crisis and building political crisis, the Venezuelan government and its opposition are blaming each other for the collapse of the power grid. Electricity has been slowly restored to parts of Caracas, but rolling blackouts remain, and much of the rest of the country is still in the dark. Collected here, photos from the past week, taken in Caracas, in San Cristóbal, and on the border with Colombia. [...]

Maslenitsa is an ancient ceremony—a farewell to winter celebrated since pagan times in the Slavic regions of Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, and other countries. Maslenitsa, or Pancake Week, is both a folk and religious holiday tied to Shrovetide, the carnival before Lent. Some traditional festivities include the burning of effigies of “Lady Maslenitsa,” family visits, snowball fights, and the cooking and eating of blini, pancakes, or crepes. Below, some images of Maslenitsa this year from Russia, Belarus, and Kyrgyzstan. [...]

It has been nearly 10 years since the end of the Sri Lankan civil war, a horrific conflict that lasted more than 25 years and claimed an estimated 100,000 lives. A decade later, land mines and unexploded ordnance still litter the northern landscape, endangering those who are trying to return to their previous lives. Allison Joyce, a photographer with Getty Images, recently spent time with some of the Tamil women, many of them widows and survivors of the war, who work for the HALO Trust, one of the NGOs trying to clear one of the largest minefields in the world.
