Alice of Penelles, Lleida by Foxx and Zeso

About 130 kms away from Barcelona, in the neighboring western province of Lleida in Catalonia, there is this little oasis of street art where almost every house is a public mural joyously adorned with graffiti. This town is called Penelles. I took pictures there a long time ago but never took the time to share it with you, not that I remember (I must be going nuts with these pandemic times). Not only do you find local ideas over there but also the work of international artists like the New Yorker or better said Long Islander BKFOXX and the French Continue reading “Alice of Penelles – Foxx and Zeso, LLeida”

Have you ever been camping in the winter? I mean, really camping—tent, sleeping bag, in the wilderness, under the clear, crisp winter sky, sleeping on snow? Colorado photographer Lars Leber lives for this kind of stuff and frequently hikes the beautiful, natural areas of Colorado to photograph its picturesque landscapes. Here, he captures his typical camping setup in the Lost Creek Wilderness against a stunning winter night sky:

Advanced Bokeh Tips

Combining flash with ambient light isn’t always an easy thing to do, especially when you have to balance the exposure in a way so that you get a nice bokeh going in the picture. The flash, even when it is fired at its lowest power, can produce a blinding amount of light. Gavin Hoey shows us how to use a flash coupled with a string of holidays lights for some beautiful background blur:

Tools

The tools Hoey uses for the shoot include a camera, a flash (Flashpoint Li-Ion Flash) and a shiny surface. He also used an incandescent bulb as

This Guy Watercooled His Canon R5 and Unlocked Unlimited 8K

The Canon R5’s overheating time limit has been the subject of much discussion and controversy. Regardless of how or why the overheating happens, Matthew Perks over at DIY Perks has come up with an unusual mod that actually works to fix it: he watercooled his camera.

Using water to remove heat is common in everything from high-end computers to car internals, but it’s not something you hear about when it comes to consumer or professional cameras.

The Canon R5 can shoot around 20 minutes of 8K video cumulatively before it overheats and needs up to 2 hours to cool down

I first came to the hospital back in June, having decided that the stories and experiences of the front line staff shouldn’t be forgotten. We’d all seen inside the Italian hospitals, but when the virus hit the UK, there was nothing coming out of the UK, so I made it my mission to gain access and document the life and death struggles going on behind closed doors.

This project is unique, and through it, we have a chance to see what it was like inside a COVID hospital at the peak of the pandemic and hear from the front line

After 70 years of holding its leading photographic trade show in Cologne, Germany, Photokina may be no more. The world’s largest photo trade fair has announced that due to a “massive decline in markets for imaging products,” it will be discontinued indefinitely.

Photokina was first held in Cologne in 1950, becoming a biennial event in 1966. The show would go on to become one of the primary venues camera manufacturers showed off new state-of-the-art products to the world and a central hub through which business in the industry was conducted.
