How to Pose and Photograph Newborn Babies
How to Pose and Photograph Newborn Babies
One of several things to keep in mind is that a sleeping baby is much easier to pose and photograph than one who is awake. Cotta uses white noise as a lullaby to keep the baby from waking.

If you’re working with a mirrorless system, just turn off any sounds and you’re set.

Explorers: The Making of Cinemagraphs and Photographs
The Explorers series was based on early 20th century explorers, thus the images have a vintage feel, complete with era-appropriate props. The images were developed by combining several photographic elements. First, high resolution photographs were taken of the Canadian wilderness. Then, with the use of some fake snow and fans, the talent (decked out in explorer-esque garb) was photographed in-studio.

We had transitioned nicely into the world of digital photography, a much more convenient and cost effective format, but there were still photographers out there who weren’t (and aren’t) ready to let film go.

The International Space Station moves incredibly fast in orbit around the Earth. In fact, its average speed is 17,150 miles per hour (27,600 km/h). To put that in perspective, the average bullet speed is 1,700 miles per hour. That’s 10 times faster than an average bullet.

This is the Biggest Picture Ever Taken of the Andromeda Galaxy
This is the Biggest Picture Ever Taken of the Andromeda Galaxy
On January 5, 2015, ESA/NASA released the sharpest image of the Andromeda Galaxy ever made. Taken with the Hubble telescope, the image is 1.5 billion pixels in size. That’s 4.3 GB of space on your hard drive (or one DVD) just for one image. Of course, the Hubble telescope doesn’t have a sensor with that many pixels—the photo is a stitched panorama.

How to Shoot Dramatic Portraits in Dark Locations
How to Shoot Dramatic Portraits in Dark Locations
The advantage of using a really deep parabolic umbrella in a shoot like this is that it’s, well, deep. That means you can really focus the light on your subject without spilling any of it on to the background. In this case the background had a lot of distracting elements, such as paint shifts, banners, and items that really did not add anything to the images.
