Photographers are often looking for ways to help separate their work and make their images stand out. A great way to do this is to utilize a distinct camera angle. If you want to get a neat perspective, try shooting from a very low angle. In Jay P. Morgan's latest video for The Slanted Lens, he discusses the different ways you can shoot low and what type of gear you might need. Just because you want a low angle doesn't mean you need to literally set your camera on the ground. A Platypod Max will allow your camera, even if it's [...]

Photographer Karl Taylor has extensive experience in the photographic industry, having worked with numerous types of camera technologies for over 20 years. Hasselblad is incredibly confident in their latest digital medium-format cameras and has asked Taylor to show the differences between 35mm and medium format in an "unbiased manner." Of course, the videos are for Hasselblad, so take "unbiased" as you will. Nonetheless, the series of four videos, seen below, are interesting and there are certainly interesting differences between... (read more) [...]

Part of the vision of the "Creative Cloud" was to offer their vast array of products across different platforms without sacrificing any user experience, data or functionality. That was six years ago, and we've only recently started to see that vision come to life in meaningful ways with the announcement of Rush last month. But according to Bloomberg, Rush was only the beginning as sources they claim have "knowledge of the plan" but wish to remain anonymous, have spoken out about the future of Photoshop: Adobe will launch a full...

When photographing birds, you often want a very high shutter speed, which means you need a lot of light. However, what do you do if you're photographing on a cloudy day? Photographer Tim Boyer has a new video offering three tips for bird photography on cloudy days. If you have a bland, gray sky that really saps the life from an image, the best thing you can do is keep the sky out of the picture altogether. You can raise the camera up to get a different angle and eliminate the sky from your frame. A small shift in position can... [...]

Over the weekend, sustained heavy rainfall hit parts of western and central Japan, causing flash flooding, setting off landslides, submerging floodplains, and forcing more than 2 million residents to evacuate. Today, Japan’s National Police Agency announced at least 200 people had died, and dozens were still missing, in the worst weather-related disaster to hit Japan in more than 30 years. More than 70,000 rescue workers are at work in hard-hit areas searching for survivors as the damage to villages, roads, and infrastructure is being assessed. Hundreds of thousands of homes remain without power or clean water. [...]

In central Italy’s Umbria region, the small village of Castelluccio sits atop a hill overlooking a broad, flat basin surrounded by the Sibillini Mountains. In October 2016, a significant earthquake struck the area, badly damaging the village and roads—but farming still takes place in the Piano Grande below, where fields of lentils and poppies bloom every year, carpeting the landscape with a colorful quilt of blossoming flowers.

We've seen plenty of videos of photographers capturing portraits during golden hour lighting conditions. It's often not too difficult to get really nice light when the sun is low. However, you don't always have the luxury of shooting during these times. What if you want to capture natural-light portraits during the middle of the day, when the sun is high and the light is harsh? In his latest Two Minute Tips video, photographer David Bergman discusses how you can make shade to deal with tough midday light. There's not always shade... (read [...]

In parts of Ukraine, Belarus, Poland, and Russia, an ancient pagan summer rite called Kupala combined with the traditional Orthodox feast of Saint John the Baptist, becoming Ivan Kupala Night, a festival celebrating the summer solstice. On Ivan Kupala Night, young people wear wreaths symbolizing purity, people sing and dance around bonfires, and they bathe naked in rivers and lakes. Many gather up their courage and leap over fires as a test of faith, to purge themselves of their sins and bad luck, and to improve their health. Collected here, a handful of images from Ivan Kupala Night celebrations in [...]

Photographer and popular YouTuber Jessica Kobeissi recently did a golden hour natural light photoshoot with model Sydney Harper. In the video below, we go behind the scenes with Kobeissi as she works with some excellent natural light. While relying on natural light does limit the times of day you can shoot, it also means that you can capture great shots without lighting equipment, which can be prohibitively expensive for photographers just starting out. That's not to say natural light is only for beginners, of course, but it's... (read more) [...]

In northern Thailand, hundreds of international rescue workers spent the past 10 days searching for a group of 12 boys, ages 11 to 16, and their 25-year-old soccer coach who became trapped in a cave after flooding caused by relentless monsoon rains. Late on July 2, rescue teams discovered all of the boys and their coach alive and in relatively good health, sheltering deep inside the cave complex. Outside, family and friends, who gathered in recent days to pray, welcomed the news. While the boys have been found, extracting them from the cave still remains a difficult task—much of the [...]
