Long exposure technique in photography is a great tool you can use to bring your creative vision to life. It allows you to create photographs that are generally not possible for us to see in the moment. Long exposure photography opens up doors to capture the unseen and also lets you use the world around you as a canvas and light as your paintbrush. Take for instance the following image taken by photographer Chase Dolan:

One sad thing about digital photography is that not many people bother to get their photos printed. Most of the images get lost in digital storage and rarely see the light of day. If you look at the past, things were different. With analog photography, the only way to see the images you took was to have them printed. The satisfaction of having a physical copy of your image was, and still is, something special. That’s something we’ve been missing out on these days. In this video, photographer Nigel Danson talks about the importance of having a physical copy of

Canon’s announcement of two RF 85mm f/1.2L lenses for their mirrorless camera system was quite surprising. One of them has that “DS” moniker, or “Defocus Smoothing” and the other does not. It was announced early last year, but what does it actually do? And how do the two lenses stand up side-by-side? The DS version of […]

The Matrix is a groundbreaking science fiction series about inclusion.


When The Matrix first opened in 1999, everyone was talking about it. It was a revolutionary look at computers, mankind, automation, and the feeling that what we felt on the inside was not projected on the outside.



There was so much for the audience to glean from these movies.



As director Lilly Wachowski put it, “When you make movies, it’s this public art form. I think any kind of art that you put out in the universe, Continue reading “Lilly Wachowski Confirms that ‘The Matrix’ is a Trans Story”

"And you know two heads are better than one."

Annie Ross, "Twisted," 1952

I raised my son alone. The short (short-short) version of the story is that his mother was a girlfriend who got pregnant by accident and opted not to have an abortion. Unfortunately, she also decided not to tell me. She broke up with me out of the blue, successfully kept her pregnancy secret up to the last minute, and put her baby—which turned out to be my baby—up for adoption. By a far-fetched chain of frankly unlikely circumstances, I got wind of all this right

These are the World’s First Photos of Lightning


This post is by DL Cade from PetaPixel

In the 1880s, photographer William Jennings set out to prove that lightning was a far more varied and volatile thing than a simple zig zag in the sky. After some trial and error, he ultimately succeeded, capturing what is often shared online as “the world’s first photograph of lightning.”

The story of Jennings’ achievement begins with painting. According to a 1939 article in Popular Science, the photographer set out to photograph lightning with his 4×5 plate camera because he was suspicious that “lightning bolts were not of the zig-zag form pictured by artists.”
