you need to read what you wrote: “They assume that just because they can’t see certain colors and elements of the light spectrum with their eyes, they don’t exist.” light beyond the visible spectrum HAS NO COLOUR. Colour is, by defintion, a way of describing the visible spectrum “If you were to visualize the entire known light spectrum as stretching from coast to coast, that which we see with our eyes would be about the width of a dime.” Thats not true either.

Opinion – Erez Marom: Whatever it Doesn’t Take

Often when talking to fellow landscape photographers, the subject of differentiating your work from other photographers’ comes up. For landscape photographers, one of the most common ways to set themselves apart is shooting in hard-to-reach locations. Probably as old as landscape photography itself is the notion that a ‘good’ photographer is one that pushes the physical boundaries, hikes farther, climbs higher, suffers harsher conditions, endures pain – all to get to a unique location and be one of the...

Fisherman Casts Line and Catches a Camera Drone

Tice Ledbetter was flying his DJI camera drone over a pier at Pacific Beach in San Diego this week when something bizarre happened: a fisherman on the pier noticed his drone, cast his fishing line at it, and hooked the quadcopter right below one of the propellers. The whole thing was captured by the drone in the video above. In addition to posting the video on YouTube, where it has been racking up a large number of views, Ledbetter also turned to Facebook to express his bewilderment at what happened. FISHING LINE. HOW.

Long-Exposure Photos of California Wildfires at Night

For the past few wildfire seasons in Southern California, Los Angeles-based photographer Stuart Palley has taken his camera out into the hills to document the blazes at night. His long-exposure photographs show both the fury and the beauty of the fires. The resulting collection of images is now part of a series titled Terra Flamma. Palley isn’t just blindly venturing into dangerous battles between firefighters and wildfires: he completed the US Forestry Service’s “Introduction to Wildland Fire Behavior” course to learn how to stay...

BTS: Photographing Wildlife in the Land of the Maasai

Photographer Chris Schmid of Morges, Switzerland, recently traveled to Masai Mara, Kenya, to document how the Kenyans living there were helping to preserve their natural environment. The 3-minute video above is a behind-the-scenes look at Schmid’s journey. “For photography I’ve used a lot the a99 coupled with the 500mm and the 70-200mm,” Schmid tells PetaPixel. “When I’m on site, I would prefer to stay far away from the animal and use a telephoto lens to have a natural feel to the images. If it wants to get closer, that’s great, but I...

A Look at Photo Steganography, the Hiding of Secrets Inside Digital Images

Here’s a fascinating (but very heady) video by Computerphile, which recently sat down with image analyst Dr. Mike Pound of the University of Nottingham to talk about the subject of digital image steganography. Steganography is the practice of hiding one piece of content inside another. In this case, Pound talks about the idea of being able to kind all kinds of content inside digital photograph files. There are various techniques for doing this “hiding,” some of which are way more complicated than others. One that Pound discusses and...

How to Capture Beautifully-Lit Wedding Ring Photos with a Cheap LED Light

Wedding photographer Paul Keppel created this helpful 3-minute video tutorial on how he goes about shooting consistent wedding ring photos using a cheap LED light and a macro lens. Keppel says he struggled to get consistent shots of rings until he started using the Yonynuo 160II LED light, which costs less than $60 online. The trick he discovered was placing the LED light on its barn doors with the lights facing straight down at the rings, thereby creating a mini makeshift light tent. You’ll want to set the rings on a shiny black...
