  • National Geographic magazine marks its 125th anniversary with a special October 2013 issue devoted to celebrating the power of photography.

“Photographers use their cameras as tools of exploration, passports to inner sanctums, instruments for change. Their images are proof that photography matters—now more than ever. The issue looks at how photography has the power to impact our lives by bearing witness, helping to prove fact, giving us insight into each other, revealing unknown places, celebrating wonder and inspiring us to protect our natural world.”

Joseph Ford: Aerial Fashion Photography

Sat September 21, 2013

When you think mix-n-match, it’s usually about what top to go with what bottom, but this photographer has gone further, mixing and matching fashion items with aerial landscapes. The result is beautiful.

Joseph Ford works for clients around the world, shooting advertising and editorial images of people on location or in studio. He has photographed landscapes and aerial images. In this Aerial Fashion Photography project, he mixes aerial photos shot in Sicily, Mauritius, Sardinia and Morocco with fashion items. Of course, they have to match pretty well for the right effect.

Deven Stross: Antartica

Sun September 8, 2013

Deven Stross is a portrait and commercial photographer living and working in Portland, Oregon and Antartica. We were captivated by his photos of the Nacreous Cloud displays over McMurdo Station, Antartica.

Nacreous clouds are sometimes called “mother-of-pearl” clouds that slowly curl, uncurl, undulate, stretch and shine with iridescent colors. They are not only seen in Antartica, but in other countries in the Northern Hemisphere also. A search on Google images reveal many beautiful nacreous cloud formations.

Follow Me Where I Go & Who I Know

Sun September 1, 2013

“Follow Me” is a travel photo series of Murad Osmann and his girlfriend as they visit some of the world’s most iconic and recognizable landmarks. Each photo is taken from the point of view of the photographer being pulled forward by one hand as his girlfriend, Nataly Zakharova, edges him on to stop taking photos and keep moving.

“That said it didn’t stop me from doing photos while she was pulling me. So that’s how it all started.”

Rolf Sachs: Blurred Lines Photography

Sun August 18, 2013

While most of us are taught to use a fast shutter speed to freeze motion, we also know that using a slow shutter speed can cause deliberate blurring and hence depict “motion.”

‘Camera in Motion’ by Rolf Sachs developed with his wife Maryam is a case for the latter where blurred images of the scene viewed through the window of a speeding train blur “the boundaries between abstract art and landscape photography.

The captivating photographs, taken from the moving train over the course of an entire year, demonstrate the changes of the seasons and lighting conditions in a distinctive combination of abstraction and realism. The images are as unexpected as they are diverse; greatly differing from the impressions the human eye would usually register when in motion.

The first selection of photographic prints are being presented by Galerie von Bartha and Leica Camera at St. Moritz Art Masters in August with the full collection and book launching in early 2014.

How to Photograph a Lion

Thu August 15, 2013

Hybrid photography (photography combining still, video and audio) is fast becoming the required skills of a photographer. This is brought out so much clearer in the August issue of National Geographic. While their print magazine features beautiful still photos of lions in the Serengeti Plains, their Web issue delivers an amazing visual and audio experience to bring you “images like never before seen.

Photographer Michael “Nick” Nichols spent over 2 years in the field for this assignment, living in the Serengeti to capture one-of-a-kind photos of lion behavior. National Geographic has just launched an amazing web experience showcasing Nichols’ work. One of the unique aspects of the project is all the technology that Nichols and his team utilized in the field (infrared cameras, robots, helicopters, camera traps, remote controlled cars); the result are images like never before seen.

Watch a lion wake up from sleep, listen to a roar, see adorable cubs playing with each other’s tail — and see how lions interact with these weird little camerabots (can’t do “it” with a camerabot watching). Plus the sad sport of Trophy Hunting.

Fong Qi Wei: Time is a Dimension

Wed August 7, 2013

Fong Qi Wei has found an elegant — and beautiful — way to depict the passage of time. He takes snapshots (“slices of time”) of sunrises and sunsets for about two to four hours to capture the gradual transition from daytime to nighttime. Then, in post processing, he slices up the images into horizontal, vertical, diagonal or concentric strips, mixes and matches strips from the different time slices and glues them together to recreate the original scene but with strips from the different time slices. The result is a single composite image that beautifully shows the passage of time.

Nickolay Lamm: Photographing Wi-Fi

Artist and researcher Nickolay Lamm wondered what Wi-Fi would look like if we could see those pulsing waves that we have come to rely on so much for communicating. So she sought the help of M. Browning Vogel (“Ph.D. in Astrobiology, worked at NASA Ames for five years, and now teaches science at the University level”).

Featured Site: Humans of Toronto

Thu July 4, 2013

It started in the Big Apple when Brandon Stanton turned his camera on the Humans of New York and since, Facebook pages documenting the people of major cities have cropped up around the world. In Toronto, Eugen Kertesz and Chris Cramer populates the Toronto version, choosing to focus exclusively on positive stories.

It’s just a little snapshot of an ordinary life, but it’s something different than you would normally read in the news… The media usually concentrates on murder, crime, politics. There is no so much space about the wonderful things in ordinary life.

Featured Site: Francois Dourlen Humorous iPhone Photos

Fri May 24, 2013

Francois Dourlen adds a humorous twist to his photography. Instead of using a drawing or photo overlayed onto a scene, he uses his iphone instead. On the screen of the iPhone is another image that seems to match precisely with the scene, except for that wonderfully twisted sense of humor of his.
