Power, Consent, and Obligations in Photography – Conscientious Photography Magazine
Dorothea Lange got permission from Florence Owens Thompson to photograph her and her children, but Thompson, who was turned into the iconic “migrant mother,” ended up being deeply resentful over how things unfolded: “I’m tired of symbolizing human poverty when my living conditions have improved.”

Photography is all about light, and the quality of light can make all the difference between an average photo and a stunning photo. Magic hour — also commonly referred to as “golden hour” — is the time of day when the sun is low and near the horizon, providing a warm glow. It occurs twice a day, in the hours of dusk and dawn. As the sun is either rising or setting, the sunlight appears as flowing gold light that casts a glow everywhere. This hazy, warm

Interesting Photo of the Day: Black Cuillin During Blue Hour

If you’ve ever had an opportunity to visit the Black Cuillin of Skye in Scotland, you know how interesting the landscape is. It is a complete mountain range that’s compacted into a remarkably small area on one of the most beautiful islands in the world. The scale of this place disguises the enormous extent of climbing that’s available, and visitors never fail to be amazed by the challenges these mountains throw down. To get a sense of how small yet magnificent the place is, have a look at the following image. Photographer Jethro Stebbings took this dramatic shot of one

Everything You Need to Know About Crop Factor (Video Tutorial)


This post is by Sunny Shrestha from PictureCorrect


Click here to view on the original site: Original Post




A lens’s effective focal length and aperture are affected by the camera’s sensor size. So it’s essential to understand the concept of crop factor and how it affects the results of a lens. Photographer Tony Northrup shares his insight:

Crop factor is basically a numerical value that you can use to convert values among different sensor sizes by simple multiplication.

“With crop factor, just like converting miles per hour to kilometers per hour, you just do simple multiplication.”

The crop factor is entirely dependent on sensor size.

Video: How Kodak became yet another victim of the juggernaut of changing technology

The Eastman Kodak Company, better known as Kodak, was co-founded by George Eastman and Henry A. Strong way back in 1888. In the more than 130 years since, the company has been through a lot. It once was a dominant force in the photography industry, at times being almost as synonymous with photography as the Apple iPod once was with respect to music. For all but the youngest in society, we have all heard the phrase, ‘Kodak moment.’

However, with the advent of digital photography, Kodak began to lose its place at the forefront of photography. Interestingly, Kodak itself

In this video and article, Chanda AM is going to help me illustrate how to balance ambient light with strobes. I love shooting in this situation with ambient light and strobe light. I want to be able to combine the ambient light here in this beautiful area with strobes.

So the way I generally do this is:

First off, I set her up so that she has the sun coming from behind. I always like the sun from behind because it gives her a nice rim light on her hat and on her shoulders. But I’m going to keep her

The $4.5K Fuji XT-1 Forensics Package Doesn’t Really Create UV Photos


This post is by Pat Nadolski from PetaPixel


Click here to view on the original site: Original Post




UV photography has many obstacles. Ultraviolet light, or light from 200nm – 400nm in wavelength, is notoriously difficult to image with normal camera equipment. A normal digital camera will record images in the visible light spectrum, or 400nm – 700nm in wavelength. To unlock sensitivity to those shorter wavelengths, a camera has to be physically modified to allow passage of light below 400nm.

We over at Kolari Vision achieve this by performing a full-spectrum conversion service to your camera’s sensor. This modification gives most cameras the needed sensitivity to see UV light, but this is only half the battle. We
