Interesting Photo of the Day: Mysterious Bright Light Photographed on Mars
Long have we speculated about life on other planets, and on Mars in particular. Could there really be other intelligent beings somewhere out there amongst the stars? We might never know for certain, but images like this photo captured by NASA’s Curiosity Rover—as it explored the Red Planet on April 3—will likely forever keep us wondering.
Balancing Originality and Orthodoxy in Children's Photography
If you took your child to a photo shoot as recently as 1995, you’d expect to dress them in their stuffy “Sunday best.” Not anymore. Now they could be wearing animal costumes, fairy wings, cowboy hats, crowns, balloons, you name it. Something happened in the mid-nineties, and the rest is history.
Watch the Painstaking Process Behind a Product Photoshoot
Ever wonder what kind of work goes into creating those glossy commercial photos that are often found as advertisements in magazines? As you’d suspect, there’s more to it than just snapping a couple photos of a product and calling it a day.
Keys to Success in Advertising Photography
If you’re a photographer thinking about getting into the advertising market, you may have your work cut out for you; competition is stiff in today’s digital world. But if you have what it takes—and that doesn’t just mean raw talent—you can make a name for yourself in the high profile industry.
Panning Photography: How to Blur the Background without Blurring the Subject
The best motion photographs pulse with energy. Action photographers accomplish this using many different techniques. One technique employs lightning fast shutter speeds to freeze motion so that every feather of a bird’s wings is perfectly sharp as the bird twists in flight, or so that every droplet of water sprayed by a swimmer is crisp and visible to the viewer.
When to Use Levels or Curves in Photoshop
Many Photoshop users learn to use the Levels dialog and then never progress to learning how to use the Curves. Let me give you several reasons why learning to use the Curves will make you more of an expert with Adobe Photoshop.

Robert Beck, Sports Illustrated staffer, caught the photo bug in his twenties. George Karbus, premier outdoor photographer, dolphin whisperer. Dave Black, Nikon Ambassador, lightpainting master. What do these three professional photographers have in common? They are each deeply and profoundly passionate about photography, even moved to tears by the power of a great picture.
Crane Operator in Shanghai Takes Photos from His Amazing Perch
Gensheng works as a crane operator in Shanghai, which affords him breathtaking views of the city. His crew is currently building the second tallest skyscraper in the world, Shanghai Tower, which dwarfs the rest of the city at 2,073 feet (632 meters). Throughout the project, Gensheng has been photographing Shanghai from his perch, and his work is stunning, offering entirely unique aerial panoramas of China’s largest metropolis.
Newborns to Seniors: The Technical Aspects of Portrait Photography
Beth Jansen‘s journey into photography is a familiar one. What started out as a hobby for capturing great pictures of her family and making a little extra money on the side escalated into a successful portrait photography business. But Jansen isn’t “just another mom with a camera.” Combining artistic vision with innate fashion sense regarding colors, patterns, textures, and the like, Jansen has created a vibrant, trendy style of portraiture that is all her own.
Interesting Photo of the Day: Trailing the Canaries
What the image, taken June 15, 2013, actually shows is the way the wind moves the water prominently southwest in the area. The Canary Islands actually block the wind movement, which changes the tint of the otherwise silvery ocean surface. Pretty impressive detail considering its 713-kilometer orbit height.
Ways to Improve Your Wildlife Photography Composition
Composition in nature photography comes easy to some, but many new photographers struggle to find their balance. This is especially true where wildlife is concerned.
Interesting Photo of the Day: Meteor Shower Over McCloud Falls
In this photo captured by Brad Goldpaint, you can really see nature connect with the soft texture of the cascading water against the sharp, meteorite-streaked sky. Anyone who stops to take it all in will no doubt feel at one with awe-inspiring Mother Earth.
A Beautiful Collection of 2014 Sony World Photography Award Finalists
Sony recently announced the 2014 winners of its expansive World Photography Awards, selected from more than 70,000 entries. The judges seemed to opt for bright colors, sharp macros, and lots of surreal imagery here—photojournalism is noticeably absent. Still, the images are pretty awesome.
How to Make Better Photos with Better Composition
Most photographers know that for a photograph to be interesting, it must have a good composition. But what does that mean, exactly? The concepts of composition are often assumed to be mere common sense, but it never hurts to refresh oneself on the basics. And remember, as photographer David Thorpe says, ”composition is better treated as a creative aid than a set of rules”:
6 Pro Tips for Making the Most of a Golden Hour Photo Shoot
Many a photographer wakes up just before sunrise and races to the designated photo shoot location just as the sun is peeking up over the horizon. While that might still yield some great images, it is far better to arrive with ample time to plan—in at least some detail—the various images you intend to make when the light is right.

Mystical 4K Timelapse of Yellowstone National Park
Henry achieves the incredible detail and fluidity in the video by utilizing the full force of the 4K video on his two Canon cameras, the EOS-1D C and 5D Mk III. The timelapse scenes were shot on a 5K RAW setting, and he uses an array of motion slider cranes like the Kessler Crane Cinedrive and Cineslider to achieve a graceful pan over lakes and valleys.
Touching Photos of a Norwegian Dog and His Foxy Best Friend
In the latest adorable pairing of furry animals, a Norwegian domestic dog and a wild rural fox have become best pals. The budding relationship was noticed by the dog’s owner, Torgeir Berge, an amateur photographer in Krakstad, Norway.
A Day in the Life of a Paparazzi
When we think of paparazzi, we usually think of bullish, headstrong photographers interrupting people’s privacy with obnoxious flashes and giant SLR lenses. But it isn’t just that. In this entertaining short documentary, we follow Giles Harrison, a 20-year industry vet and permanent fixture in LA’s celebrity scene, on a morning round through suburban streets while hunting for local celebrities doing mundane things.
Interesting Photo of the Day: A Speedy Snail
It’s a bit of a mystery how the enigmatic Cafini shot this one. It’s possibly a double-exposure, one very long and one a quick flash-lit finale. He’s known for long exposures and dramatic overlays, which he often uses to emphasize dancers and athletes in ways that look magically light painted.
