There are certain subjects in the macro world, which are so fascinating and absorbing that almost every macro photographer will point a camera at them at some point. No matter how many photos you take or see of these subjects, their charm does not seem to wear off.

Just think of snowflakes, the compound eyes of insects or the refractive nature of water droplets. Or, of course, the psychedelic colour plays of soap film.

After spending countless hours photographing these mesmerizing patterns, I can assure you that it never gets boring. Quite the opposite is true indeed, the more you

These Guys Strapped a RED Camera to a 100mph FPV Racing Drone

Filmmaker and YouTuber Potato Jet recently teamed up with first person view (FPV) racing drone pilot Paul Nurkkala to try something kind of crazy: they strapped Potato Jet’s RED cinema camera to a custom-built, high-speed octa-copter and took it for a spin… and a flip… and a few more maneuvers besides.

It’s worth pointing out that Nurkkala isn’t just any FPV drone pilot, he’s actually a regular contestant in the Drone Racing League on NBC and the 2018 world champion of drone racing. He also shoots commercially for movies and television, capturing high-speed stylized footage that you simply can’t shoot

VSCO Went Full MacGyver to Create an Authentic Kodachome Film Simulation

Last month, VSCO achieved a years-old dream of releasing a preset/filter that was based on Kodak’s iconic “Kodachrome” film stock. But creating the KC25 preset was anything but easy. In fact, it involved custom chemicals, custom hardware, and two years of experimentation to get this one right.

You see, when the folks at VSCO (formerly “Visual Supply Co.”) set out to create one of their film simulations, they usually start with the actual film. Just one problem: the last roll of Kodachrome was processed in 2010, one year before VSCO was founded.

“We had made some eyeballed attempts based

This is What It’s Like Shooting NHL Games Inside a COVID ‘Bubble’

The National Hockey League (NHL) recently released a behind the scenes video that shows you what it’s like being an official NHL photographer inside one of the league’s COVID “bubbles.” These photographers shoot as many as three games per day, and keep a grueling schedule of shooting, editing, sending off images, and then shooting some more.

If there’s a theme to this peek behind the scenes, it’s that these guys and their remote editors are working harder and faster than ever.

“Working the ‘the bubble’ has been interesting to say the least, entertaining at most…” says photographer Chase Agnello-Dean.

Photographer and YouTuber Jiggie Alejandrino loves to show his viewers what’s possible when shooting with just one light; but for his most recent tutorial, he took the concept one step further. Not only did he shoot this using a single LED light panel, he used a point-and-shoot camera instead of his more professional gear.

“I want to once again explore the potential of one light, but to make it a bit more interesting, I will be using a point and shoot camera to create a couple of dramatic portraits,” explains Alejandrino. “The first will be a timeless portrait and the

Photographers and filmmakers Andrew Levitt, Jacob Phillips, and Taylor Gray are back at it with the latest installment of their series in which they re-create Apple’s MacOS desktop wallpaper photos.
