Tim Navis Instant Life

April 10th, 2012

Tim Navis is at it again! He shot these on an underwater disposable camera. The results are awesome. Now I’m wishing I wouldn’t have lost my Yashica T4 on a plane in Chicago.

Hasselblad H4D Ferrari Edition

April 3rd, 2012

It may not be the world’s fastest camera, but it sure is one of the most elegant. We all knew it was only a matter of time before one of the world’s finest cameras met head on with one of the worlds finest car manufacturers. Hasselblad and Ferrari have created a limited edition H4D-40 featuring a 40 Megapixel medium format sensor and True Focus AF system. The H4D Ferrari has been produced in a limited run of 499 cameras that will drain your pockets by just under $30,000.

The camera comes in an elegantly designed, hand-made glass topped case. Much like a Ferrari itself, the case also features a luxurious inner lining to keep the camera comfy.


Ian Ruhter: Silver & Light – Building a time machine

April 3rd, 2012

Ian Ruhter has always been a photographer that I look up to. His work is super unique in both style & concept. His newest project Silver & Light, takes you on a journey where not very many photographers get to go.

Words from Ian’s project:

This project was created with the same spirit that america was founded on. Our intentions are to connect everyone in america through the lens of this camera and social networking sites. We can’t do this without you. We want to tell your story and show your city or town through photographs of you, and people you know. As we travel around america looking for people and places to shoot you will be able to keep track of where we are going and help us decide where we go next. Join us in our journey by liking our facebook to get yourself photographed by us.

Mid-Century Postcard Photographs

March 25th, 2012

Stumbling upon mid-century postcard photographs is a lot like finding treasure. This set includes several locations, but the two that bring back memories are the Nogales and Sands Motel postcards. When I was a kid my family and I went into Nogales. I don’t remember a whole lot except that Nogales didn’t look anywhere near as nice as the photo does.

Found deep in this MCM Flickr Pool.

March 13th, 2012

German Photographer Florian Imgrund shot these awesome double exposures on a 6×6 film camera. It’s great to see photographers still shooting double exposures. I often find they’re my favorite type of photos.

Canon 5D Mark III Announced

March 2nd, 2012

The Canon 5d Mark III that everyone has been waiting for has been announced. The camera brings a handful of improvements including speed, greater resolution, more processing power, and more options for shooting HD video. The full-frame sensor has been upped to 22.3 Megapixels and shoots up to 6 frames per second with a 61-point AF system. What’s great about the new sensor in this camera is that the pixel pitch is smaller, which allows for better low light performance.

For a handful of years I’ve shot on my trusty Canon 1d Mark II but it’s dated. Jumping up to the 1DX would be ideal, but it’s $7000 price tag is unfortunate. So what do I think about the 5d Mark III? The Canon 5d Mark II was an amazing camera, but the 5d Mark III is even better. Coming in at $3500 for the body I don’t see it as being unreasonably priced.

Is the 5D Mark III what you hoped for—would you buy it?

Spec list:
Price: $3500 (body)
Sensor: 22.3-megapixel, full-frame (36.0mm x 24.0mm) CMOS
Processor: Digic 5+
Max ISO: 25,600 (standard), 102,400 (expanded)
Max Image Size: 5,784 x 3,856
Video: 1080p (24/25/30 fps), 720p (24/25/30/50/60 fps)
Display: 1.04-million dot, 3.2-inch LCD


Motion in Air + Sculptures

February 27th, 2012

This series of images by Mike Campau captures a moment of time in each dancer’s maneuver. The sculptures surrounding them are their movements frozen in time. The sculptures were created in 3D, but how cool would it be to reproduce something similar with just photography?

Yosemite Timelapse: This is where we live

February 8th, 2012

How often do you stop and think about where we live? How about just looking up at the sky? It’s remarkable that we live on a planet: a round marble-like chunk of rock seemingly floating in a sea of blankness that we call the universe.

This time lapse video was a collaboration between Sheldon Neill and Colin Delehanty. It was shot in Yosemite National Park on a Canon 5D Mark II using a motion controlled dolly.
