This is the perfect time to get that camera out, and capture timeless moments with friends and family that you have close, or on those nature walks that you are taking as you deal with more social isolation than you probably have in a lifetime.
For those of us in the currently storm and snow swept northern latitudes, spring is approaching. It is the season of new life, renewal and of course dusting of the cameras and lenses and embracing the brighter light and blue skies. Today we are going to have a look at some of the subjects you can shoot during the spring. .
These 5 cool tips from photographer Jimmy McIntyre will help you create stunning cityscapes.
I see a lot of business that take inner-office shots, or head shots of staff as their inside the business pictures. What about outside the business? What about the city or parks around you?
Often, those are the best places to get a good look or feel for where you are located as a business. We recently did a shoot of staff in a nearby park, and in and around an old caboose that was in an alleyway nearby. Signature shots, perfect for a business expose.
Just because we can’t get out and about like we normally would doesn’t mean we have to stop taking pictures. There’s still plenty you can do, provided you’re prepared to use some imagination. Here are a few ideas to keep you shooting until normal life resumes.
Here at Edelleye, we are more the still-life and urban landscapes type, what are you shooting during these times of isolation and social distance?
The number of times we have met with clients or been in meetings brainstorming marketing campaigns and creative, and seen the opportunity to seize the moment with a staff member pulling out a camera is huge. Great cameras are in your pocket these days. You just have to build up the confidence and a few skills to shoot like a pro.
From sunrises, sunsets, desert ranges, majestic mountains to fields of flowers, creating beautiful landscape images can be easy at times, and sometimes difficult. There’s a lot to think about when composing beautiful images. Sure, we have to determine our ISO, depth of field and exposure compensation. We also need our tripod, cable release and possibly even a filter or two. Then, we need to get our composition just right. A lot of sky? A hint of sky? Or, no sky at all? Finding and framing up our images is a lot of work creatively and technically. However, there are a
Panning the expansive desert, “American Totem” captures the mesas scattered across the beige- and rust-colored landscape but with an unearthly twist. Pillars ascend from their flat tops, reaching up through the clouds toward a pale blue sky in the short film, which combines real footage and digital effects.
Created by London-based artist Theodore John, aka mustardcuffins, the moving columns shoot through dissipating clouds as the sun rises and sets, casting shadows across the sand and rocks. As night sets in, the film speeds up, morphing the dark sky into one filled with shooting stars. Find more multi-media projects from the artist and motion graphics designer on Instagram and Behance.
A combo of 4K and 360º, the AI-powered modular Insta360 ONE R action camera impresses with its small size and high quality hardware.
We have been wanting to get our hands on one of these. Nokia has had a professional alternative in the marketplace for years. However, it costs 10s of thousands of dollars. The review cites the cost of this bad boy as a con, but we have to say that it actually hits the sweet spot.
Can’t wait to get out in the field and start creating with this thing. Of course we’ll report on our progress once we find a client that can use some 360 degree creative.
Raw files (the correct files format differs from manufacturer to manufacturer) are simply a ‘digital negative’ of your image (but aren’t negative at all, only referred to that way in reference to the film era). In Practical terms, a raw file is all the bits of information the sensor captures, packed in one file without any compression or loss. But why would anyone need all that info? After all, raw files are 10x larger than jpegs, right? Yes, and it means they contain much more information. If you edit a raw file and need to brighten the shadows and equally tone
For some reason, I always think about travel for the Holidays. Not getting in, but getting out. Iceland is definitely one fo those places that always makes the list.
These Photos are a reminder of what that trip would be like. The dramatic landscapes, the flora, the sheer volume of exposed rocks and water. I can’t wait to make that trip.
One year I will actually do it…
Making high-contrast shapes in Capture has been a design staple, and now for the first time you can create detailed, full-color vector shapes, right from your mobile device! Simply open the app and switch from black and white to color mode in the shapes panel to vectorize artwork and photos.

Improvements in imaging, especially the software, just keep coming. Nokia had versions of this capability years ago. Good to see Samsung catching up.
Samsung’s next Galaxy smartphone could be a huge leap forward in terms of its camera capabilities – at least if early spec promises are to be believed. Photo of Galaxy S10 from Samsung. While we’re starting to get clearer pictures on the future of Samsung and Apple’s future models, we’ve also been here before and know that companies tend to promise everything up until the launch of a new product. After all, they don’t call it the hype train for no reason at all. Early renderings of the Galaxy S11 show one of those ugly camera bumps on the back
