Do You Own a Point-and-Shoot and Like Macro Photography?


According to commercial and wedding photographer JP Danko, your old point-and-shoot might be the best macro lens (camera) you have lying around. He says he ALWAYS uses it to get the details in his wedding work and claims the images are often better than when he uses his high-end macro lenses.

Check out the article here to see what he has to say and check out his images.

Last day of shooting in Utah


Last day of shooting in Utah ~ Finally got a good picture with @officialemilyprocter Emily Procter. She is incredibly intelligent, talented, down to earth, kind & professional. The hours we all put in as a team are just crazy, I'd say even more than disaster aid work, so there isn't much time for anything else. So proud to be a producer & photographer on this incredible project. I have huge admiration & respect for everyone on the cast and crew. We have a couple more days left in Cali, but we feel we are at the goal line in the forth quarter. #loveeverlastingmovie @loveeverlastingmovie

This officer showed up and tried to shut our production down. He was really mean. In other news, I landed my second tiny appearance in the movie. It's an amazing, killer shot thanks to @jlarsl #loveeverlastingmovie @loveeverlastingmovie

Intense Hyperlapse of Los Angeles by Vadim Tereshchenko


It took artist Vadim Tereshchenko two of patience and perseverance to complete this beautiful hyperlapse of Los Angeles. As he explains;

"I spent a lot of time scouting for locations, waiting for the perfect conditions, and catching the beauty of the city. Lighting is important. Sunrises, sunsets; transitions from dawn to day, and from dusk to dark. I used a lot of self-developed tricks and techniques in both the shooting and editing processes - it took a lot of time and passion to make this video."

Put it in full screen on HD and enjoy this two minute ride.

Canon Work on A Mirrorless System for 2016


According to Canon Rumors 2016 will be the year that Canon will focus on an updated mirrorless system.

"We’re told Canon is actively developing EOS M and EF-M products and 2016 will be the year they “get serious about the platform”. Multiple zoom and prime lenses are in the late state of development and announcements should begin in the first part of 2016.

We’re also told that an EOS M4 will be a global product and a departure from what we’ve seen through the first 3 iterations. There was no information on sensor size, but I suspect APS-C will remain part of the system.
It would be a great if Canon put real resources into developing the EOS M system.
