This DIY medium format camera shoots both 110mm and pinhole lenses

Sometimes, you come across a DIY film camera that’s just beautiful in its simplicity. The LIMES 120 is one such camera. Made from an old Hasselblad medium format film back, it shoots 120 roll film and sports either an Industar 110mm f/4.5 lens and a tea can, or a pinhole. Created by photographer Daniele Sandri, a comparison […] The post This DIY medium format camera shoots both 110mm and pinhole lenses appeared first on DIY Photography.

I promised to share pictures of my completed shed, which I finished with Su’s help last Sunday (she did all the wood treatment varnish painting!), but even though I took the pictures on my iphone, that bastard icloud didn’t update them to my photostream. Ugh. So I brute-forced it old school style and just sent them by email. Here for your delectation:

where attention goes, energy flows

So, it appears I have a focus problem.I mentioned in my last post that I’m really working on creating routine — and for the most part, it’s working. I’ve made my bed every day this week. I’ve started my mornings with meditation and a huge glass of water. I’m journaling. I’m getting outside. And the routine is incredibly comforting.However: when I sit to meditate? I think about work. When I go for my hike? I think ab...

Polaroid Flashback? Meet the Kodak SMILE Printer

It’s been a long while since the days of Polaroid and instafilm’s dominance over an industry since turned to the much-quicker method of smartphones with cameras. But that doesn’t mean that makers aren’t still giving the instant film market a shot, Kodak being among them. Image via Kodak. Revealed at CES 2019, the SMILE printer from Kodak uses some pretty cool tech underpinning it. A printer that uses “zero ink” technology, the Kodak SMILE joins products from others such as Canon and the aforem...

Why President Trump is Quietly Caving on Parts of the Shutdown

When President Donald Trump signs a bill guaranteeing back pay for furloughed federal workers Wednesday afternoon, it will be a rare moment of bipartisan agreement during the ongoing partial government shutdown. It will also be the latest sign suggesting that Trump thinks he’s losing the fight. In recent days, the Trump Administration has taken several…

The Biggest Flaw I See in Pictures*

In one way it's curious that Henri Cartier-Bresson is known for "the decisive moment," and for things like Joel Meyerowitz's description of him darting and pirouetting through crowds like a hummingbird, wielding his Leica like a hibachi chef's knife, because it downplays the amount of time he must have spent sitting around waiting. Because as I understand it, one of his picturetaking strategies was to find a nice setting, and then wait around until something happened in it. Who knows how long he...

Everything you need to know about depth of field in under 4 minutes

Depth of field can be a somewhat confusing topic to get to grips with if you’re new to photography.

Tunnel Vision is the Death of Creativity with Ami Vitale

After more than a decade covering conflict, photographer and filmmaker Ami Vitale couldn’t help but notice that the less sensational—but equally true—stories were often not getting told: the wedding happening around the corner from the revolution, triumphs amidst seemingly endless devastation. As a result, she re-committed herself to seeking out the stories within and around “the story”. Ami is a photographer with National Geographic magazine, yet this episode of the podcast isn’t expressly abou...

This Photo of Shanghai is Made of 195,000 Megapixels

5 Years On…The Death of the DSLR Revisited

A little over 5 years ago, we posted an article questioning whether the death of the DSLR had been greatly exaggerated. It was one of a raft of articles by various writers on various websites. Some were very much of the opinion the DSLR was dead, others thought it was absurd that mirrorless would be the future. All the articles were well reasoned, based in fact and created heated discussion within the community.   In our article, we looked at how smartphones had killed the compact camera market...

Photographing with less

Minimalism, Marie Kondo, tidying up, goodbye things, less is more. You might have heard of these things if you have ever scrolled through Netflix or Youtube. You might have even come across a few articles on social media referring to decluttering or getting rid of your stuff, or simple living. Minimalism is becoming a social movement, culturally recognised. We have […] The post Photographing with less appeared first on DIY Photography.

How to make & use a single DIY globe modifier for simple, stunning portraits

It’s not often I get to shoot very simple, clean white light shots, but in a recent shoot the model asked if she could get some updated ‘Polaroids’.

Yes, you can update your Godox firmware on the mac, and here’s how to do it

As good as Godox equipment can be, it has one fatal flaw which puts many photographers off using their equipment. There’s no easy, native way to update the firmware on a Mac.

Haiti's isolated and forgotten village – in pictures

Near the bottom of the island of Hispaniola in south-east Haiti is a forgotten village, cut off from its own country, and slowly emptying as its residents leave. As well as health services or electricity, Boucan Ferdinand also lost its only road to the nearest town, Bois Negresse, in devastating floods in 2004. Some of its residents have left for the capital, Port-au-Prince, while others cling onto a precarious life. Many have crossed illegally into the more prosperous neighbouring Dominican Rep...

A Look at Filtering

The word “filter” often gets used to describe the edits and adjustments made to our photos, but in Lightroom the real meaning has to do with how you can filter the data stored in the catalog to help you in your workflow. In my next series of posts I’m going to dig into getting the most out of these easily overlooked, yet extremely powerful functions hidden in plain sight. We’ll start with the most obvious, but there’s more hidden here and there within the Library module. The Library Filter Bar ...

NASA Probe Snaps Selfie of Earth from 71 Million Miles Away

Love ‘em or hate ‘em, selfies are a byproduct of the sheer ubiquity of cameras. And part of the reason for this ubiquity is that optical technology has advanced so much – and become so much cheaper in the process – over the past two decades that it is astounding. Image from NASA/Goddard/University of Arizona/Lockheed Martin Space. Of course, one area where optical technology has really delivered some non-selfie dividends for humanity is in outer space where we receive photographs of a history-...

Selfies and Pictures of Food for Everyone: Change to Instagram Makes Posting to Multiple Accounts Possible
