VideoTipp: 360 Time-Lapse of the Milky Way and FAQ for Mars Curiosity Rovers Cameras

Just as last Sunday, I surfed the web and came across two very intriguing videos. The first one is a thrilling 360-degree time-lapse video by a well-known name in the astro-photography scene, Stéphane Guisard. It depicts the Milky Way as it floats across the sky.  The second one is a FAQ-session for the photo-system (system, ...

Tip: Tim Tadder’s Water Wigs

Actually, I am not a big fan of high speed photography. If, however, we are talking of balloons filled with water falling and bursting on people’s heads, I am happy to make an exception and view the photos ;).

Catherine Balet: Strangers in the Light

I shoot more photos now than ever before, but especially valuable are the few pictures from my childhood days and family photos that came into being long before I was born, a time when it was still largely considered expensive ...

Andy Prokh: the cat and the girl

Ingenious photography can be complex at times. One would have to travel to the end of the world in order to capture unspoilt places or rare, gorgeous animals, or alternatively rent expensive cars and properties and hire even more expensive models, sometimes even calling in every favour just to be part of exclusive events.
