Gone are the days of flipping through physical photo albums with your family, reminiscing on vacations, weddings and other shared experiences while leaning over a massive book. Now in the digital age, many of us have thousands of photos stored on our phones, many of which we take and never
Making things can be time-consuming, and if you're recording your entire process on video, your camera can start to heat up as the minutes tick past. Industrial designer Eric Strebel found his Lumix GF7 getting so hot that it would shut itself off. Strebel's solution: Harvest an aluminum heat
Social media has been inundated with shots of the historic levels of flooding Hurricane Harvey has wrought on Texas. Here are some images that really drive home the insane levels the water has reached: Interestingly enough, ants have worked out an effective defense mechanism to survive:
The internet is awash in self-shot eclipse footage, most of it pretty sucky. If you missed the live event itself, leave it up to the pros--NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) and NASA--to give you the best views. First off, here's what the eclipse looked like from space, time-lapsed into
There are enough quirky "found thing" necklaces out there for this one to pass as nothing more than a piece of jewelry ironically moonlighting as a camera—which is exactly what Brooklyn-based designer Olivia Barr wants you to think. In reality, it's a real-live piece of tech that's perfect for the hipster Harriet the Spy in all of us.
[Spoilers.] In last night's episode of GoT we were treated to this rather epic shot of Daenarys and Drogon presiding over a defeated army. Since dragons are not large and intimidating enough, Daenarys has placed Drogon up on a hill, to give him that couple of extra feet that make
The folks over at Lensball are selling a physical photography accessory that will presumably appeal to the Instagram generation. The eponymous product is simply a sphere made out of scratch-resistant K9 crystal, in two sizes: 60mm ($25) and 80mm ($35). The lensball will of course flip the image upside down,
This is hilarious. Last week a Norwegian prankster named Johan Slattavik posted the following image to a Facebook group called Fedrelandet Viktigst ("Fatherland First," a Norwegian nationalist group). Slattavik captioned the image with "What do people think of this?" The folks in this anti-immigrant group apparently thought they were
As per usual, last night's episode of "Game of Thrones" was so visually dark that you couldn't see how much work the set designers put in. An example: Here's another. It's so dark in this scene that you can't even tell there's a guard standing behind Jon Snow and Ser
Australia-based Gabriel Scanu learned to use a DSLR at the age of 12, taught by his cinematographer father. Now just 20, Scanu has also learned to use a drone and has mastered Lightroom presets, and the results are stunning: Scanu dropped out of school to pursue shooting full-time. On
The Zepcam professional bodycam is a body-worn video camera for professional use. The small, rugged and lightweight camera is capable of filming day and night. It enables individuals, for instance working in law enforcement, public transport or industry, to record important events. The camera comes with a docking station for charging and data transfer.
Just because your prototype is finished, doesn't mean your work is. Here industrial designer Eric Strebel points out the importance of having a pre-established, ready-to-go camera set-up, as with deadlines you may need to ship your prototype out the day it's finished, and you want a way to document your
Are you the type of designer who wants to know how your tools work, or are you only concerned with the utility they provide? If you're the former, you're bound to find the following video interesting. TechQuickie breaks down the difference between JPEGs, PNGs, GIFs, TIFFs, SVGs and Raw files,
At 140 West, you will be part of the energy that’s evolving the Verizon brand to become a leading technology player. The new Tribeca space will bring together some of the industry’s sharpest minds across a multitude of disciplines, creating an integrated team that can be responsive and innovative across every Verizon touchpoint.
While recently lauding/lamenting Cotopaxi's rare stylish travel backpack, I was struck by how few options there are for slick packs that accommodate bulky cameras and travel necessities without losing EDC appeal. Options for sturdy carry alls tend towards sack-like hiking packs, dorky extra-padded equipment bags, or going Full Messenger with
The Lucid VR team created an easy-to-use stereoscopic 3D 180° camera for the consumer market. Model Solution’s design and manufacturing teams took the original design and specified LEDs, switches, materials, finishes and more to keep costs down and still meet the application’s demanding requirements. Model Solution built three initial mock-ups and initial full appearance models in less than 12 days. These models featured functional LEDs and switches, allowing Lucid VR engineers to see and feel h
Once cameras were added to cell phones, society's documentation of everything grew explosively. But there are several earlier generations of images—shot by our parents, our grandparents—that we do not have practical access to, because they are trapped on old film negatives that we're never going to bother bringing to a
The things people will believe on social media are truly depressing. For instance, last year I began seeing this video pop up. People eagerly forwarded this "amazing" footage supposedly showcasing the Presidential limo's defensive driving capabilities: Even if you were watching this on a low-resolution monitor, the giveaway should be
A graphic designer going by the handle Motion Magic has mastered a new art form. Neither still photograph nor video, s/he has struck upon a mesmerizing balance between the two: This capture was sexy af already..I had to add motion to it ??@raycollinsphoto Amazing images
Steven M. Johnson's Armbrella might not be a real product, but the Nubrella is. When we first wrote about it nearly ten years ago, it was a relatively lightweight product and looked like this: However, it's now evolved into something considerably clunkier: This is a good example of how
Most of us see our dogs from this angle, as we're taller than them: German photographer Andrius Burba, however, has found a different perspective. "I've recently found a great interest in taking pictures of various animals from underneath," he writes. Prior to shooting dogs, Burba began with cats: Amazingly,
There used to be an exciting anticipation with pre-digital photography: You hit the shutter button, then waited hours or days to see how the film came out. Digital photography has wiped that out with screens delivering instant gratification. However, some photographers that shoot digital, like Xavi Bou, still have
Remember our three-part series on space colony form factors? (Just say "yes.") The prevailing wisdom is that the shape of any large-scale space colony would have to circle back on itself so that the gravity created by rotating it would maximize the usable surface area: We can't help but
Steve Giralt is the engineer/photographer who rigged up that elaborating "self-assembling burger" video shoot. Now he's back with an equally tricky project, shooting "United Not Divided," a PSA that hopes to calm the political divisiveness America's currently experiencing. Here's the finished product: #UnitedNotDivided from United Not Divided America on
Here's some outside-of-the-box thinking: A trio of college students shooting a video project needed a way to get aerial shots, but couldn't afford a drone. Using cardboard, foam and duct tape, they rigged up a housing that allowed them to safely lob their GoPro into the air. Pleased with the
We've all seen charts like the following, which indicate how tall one thing is in relation to another: And you've undoubtedly seen a photo of, say, some tiny electronic component with a quarter placed in the photo for scale. But college student and Photoshop wiz Kevin Wisbith has a different
In Australia there's a spider known as Thwaitesia argentiopunctata, a/k/a the Mirror Spider. Apparently they have cousins in Southeast Asia as well, as photographer Nicky Bay has been shooting them in his home city-state of Singapore. Writes Bay: For several years, I have been observing the odd behavior of the
Too early to tell if it'll work, but this is interesting: Snapchat is reinventing themselves as Snap Inc.--and now calling themselves a camera company. "We believe that reinventing the camera represents our greatest opportunity to improve the way people live and communicate," they write. To reinvent the camera, they've made
The new Sofort might be the least Leica-like Leica ever, which is arguably awesome. It's clunky, it's silly, it's relatively cheap, and it features very few knobs, bells or whistles. Instant cameras are a niche product, especially now that everyone has a multi-megapixel camera and photo roll in their pants
Steve Giralt isn't just a photographer; the dude is a Visual Engineer, according to his bio, and as you'll see below the title looks well-earned. Check out the crazy automated rig that he built in order to shoot this video of floating hamburger ingredients magically falling into place: Deconstructed
Responsibilities include working closely with the Senior Art Director to create consistent brand materials across all channels and assisting the Photographer and Senior Art Director with various photo shoots—editorial, campaign, still life, social, etc.
When you see photos of classic cars from past decade, they're often beautifully restored, looking better than they did when they left the factory. No such love is given to old computers, as most people don't care. Photographer James Ball, however, does.
Car clubs are nothing new, but we got a kick out of this one's recent photo session. Peach State Challengers is, as the name suggests, an auto club exclusively for people who own Dodge Challengers and live in or around Georgia. (That's our "Peach State" for you non-Americans.) During a
