The results are stunning. “I’ve always had a fascination with our world below the breaking waves,” Porteous writes. “To me, it symbolizes the world that we live in today, the calm after every storm. The beauty, clarity and chaos.” “Reefs that survive and many that have gone, fish numbers are down in oceans, where others they thrive,” Porteous continues. “We live in a incredible time surrounded by a beautiful world,

Every year since 2010, photographer Clint Davis has put together a creative promotional mailer to send out to current and prospective clients. This year he got playful and created a custom LEGO kit promo mailer. “Considering many of the people I do business with are extremely busy and surrounded by some of the most creative and innovative people in the world, this is my trojan horse,’ Davis writes. After some brainstorming, Davis had the idea of doing a LEGO mailer. And since he’s a commercial and editorial automotive photographer, the LEGO kit would have a car theme. Davis was happy

For millennia, artists have used the diptych to explore duality. During medieval times, diptych panels were often connected by a hinge – part protection, part transportation-friendly design – and featured ecumenical themes. Nowadays, photography is often presented side-by-side, sometimes intentionally on the part of the photographer, as well as co-opted by consumers as a part of… The post A Day of Diptychs: Contrasting Two Photos at a Time appeared first on PhotoShelter Blog.
Would you turn down a $150,000 distribution deal for your first feature film and take matters into your own hands? These filmmakers did.
Like most good stories, this one is made of blood, sweat, and tears. Well, maybe just blood and sweat. And clicks — lots of them.

Photographer and Formula 1 fan Tim Binnion recently attended the 2018 Chinese Grand Prix in Shanghai. In addition to shooting the race with his Nikon DSLR, Binnion also decided to document it with a 0.016-megapixel Game Boy Camera from 1998… and the results are pretty awesome. “To my knowledge, no one has ever shot motorsports with a Game Boy Camera before, and there’s probably a good reason for that!” Binnion writes. He was inspired by the work of photographer Joshua Paul, who shoots F1 with a 1913 Graflex 4×5 view camera, and Alexander Pietrow, who shot the
