Yesterday something much more dangerous happened when a drone <a href="https://fstoppers.com/drone/it-was-matter-time-drone-strikes-plane-heathrow-airport-london-125433" >collided with an airplane</a> at London's Heathrow Airport. While approaching Heathrow Airport, a British Airways pilot of an Airbus A320 from Geneva to London reported that the plane had collided with a drone. Thankfully, the plane landed safely and nobody was injured, but the drone did strike the front of the aircraft. British Airways released a statement about the incident in which they said that the plane landed safely and that... <br /><a class="readMore" href='http://www.imaging-resource.com/news/2016/04/18/someone-finally-flew-their-drone-into-an-airplane-hopefully-not-ruining-dro'>(read more)</a>
Where did 'Send to Motion' go when Final Cut Pro X and Motion 5 were released? That's not a problem now as Automatic Duck has announced an upcoming application that will move clips from an FCPX timeline into Motion.
Many of us started photography quite innocently— with small compact point-and-shoots, a smartphone, or a disposable film camera. The main advantage was that we didn’t need to think about all the technical settings when we made images—rather, we focused on capturing the “decisive moment”, the framing and composition as well as the emotional content within the frame. However the more “experienced” we become in photography, we focus less on the emotional and creative elements, and more on the technical and gear-related parts of photography. I know when I started with my point-and-shoot camera, I loved how I could keep my camera in my front pocket and take it with me everywhere I went. I remember when I first discovered the “rule of thirds” grid overlay on my point-and-shoot Canon SD600, and how I experimented with framing, composition, and making images that I felt were interesting and personally-meaningful. But after discovering
Mother and talented photographer Niki Boon has chosen to raise her kids totally tech free: no Netflix, no iPads, just 10 acres of coast-side property in New Zealand to explore. And she’s been capturing their unusual upbringing on camera in stunning candid photos. The photos serve a dual purpose. Not only are they there to document her kids’ childhood, they serve as affirmation that she’s doing the right thing by raising them this way, something she’s received both praise and criticism over. “Taking an unconventional approach to our children’s education and our lifestyle has been a journey with many questions, both from others and from ourselves, about what we are doing and why.” Niki told us over email. “Documenting their days has helped me to reflect on our decision, one often rife with objections and criticisms, and reconfirm to me that they are right where they belong: wild and

Below is a walk through of how I created ONE image for my portfolio, I will add some of the other images, but I don’t have them in my portfolio. This is because this was the start of a series of images and I had set out to come out with only one from each shoot.
The IdeaThe concept started after I saw Simeon Quarrie’s work for a couple. He had stated in a BTS video that the rain machine they had ordered had not turned up, so they simply built their own instead. There was no more information on it, but it sounded so cool I had to try it for myself. I had no idea what I wanted to do with it, but it was a quiet summer!
The Rain Machine BuildIt was a surprisingly easy job. I started off with 2 long bits of wood

My name is Chris König, a 23-years-old self-taught photographer based in The Netherlands. This story is about my one week adventure in the Italian Dolomites, in which I tried to challenge myself, not only on a photography level, but on a personal level as well. I crawled through 2 meters deep snow, sweat so much I thought there was no water left in me, and climbed for so long that it felt like my legs left me halfway through the trip… It was all absolutely worth it! It is very easy to be distracted from what you do, even if you are truly passionate about it. For example, when I am planning new photo shoots for my portfolio, I find it very easy to just postpone it until I kind of forget about it, even though I still love to shoot every day. Kind of strange how this works, but
Geoff Wittig: "Totally agree with the recommendation above for Jeff Schewe's books. The Digital Negative (second edition) was just published in September 2015, so it's pretty much up to date in terms of current versions of Photoshop/ACR and Lightroom. Schewe's approach to image processing is pretty much style-agnostic, giving you access to all of Photoshop/ACR and Lightroom's tools without dictating what your images should look like. Schewe gets right to the point and doesn't
It took 2 months for photographer and filmmaker Mathieu Stern to create his haunting short film “Alone in Paris.” That’s because it wasn’t shot at odd hours when Paris’ streets were empty… every scene was shot at 2pm on a weekday and then painstakingly cleaned up in Photoshop! The idea for the video, says Mathieu on his blog, came to him after spending too much time on a crowded subway. “What if everyone was gone, what if I had Paris for myself,” he wondered. “What if … and why not?” And so he created this deserted, eerie Parisian landscape, frame by frame, by erasing everyone except his main subject from the film in Photoshop:
