Remember the 1958 B-Movie called The Fly produced and directed by Kurt Neumann? That movie was a cult hit then, and it was remade in 1986 with Jeff Goldblum, Geena Davis and John Getz cast in starring roles. Indonesian photographer Donald Jusa must have seen either the original or the remake, since his macro photography of insects seems to be inspired by this sci-fi horror flick.
New York-based photographer Michael Massaia‘s images are distinct because of a couple of characteristics. The most obvious is that they are rendered in monochrome. The other reason is that the majority of them were shot in the dead of night. The latter was not done out of creative considerations, but rather because of a condition Massaia’s struggles with: insomnia.
Jack Long is an American photographer based in Milwaukee who is extremely skilled in high-speed photography. His talent is obvious as he creates sculptures from flowing liquid, capturing them with split-second precision on his camera. His fleeting subjects are only visible for 1/10,000th of a second, which is the camera setting required for shooting them.

Have you ever looked at stunning photos on 500px, Flickr, Behance, etc. and wondered:
“WHY DON’T MY PHOTOS LOOK LIKE THAT?!”
I have a secret to share with you…
Those incredible photos would look completely average without top notch photo editing! I used to think my photos were terrible because they didn’t look like the photographers photos I looked up to. I didn’t realize that while taking a great photo is important, a great photo edit is equally as important!
I wanted my photos to look great too, but didn’t want to spend hours editing each one. With that in mind I’ve I created exactly 100 Lightroom presets in 4 different collections to make sure you get the right edit for the right photo, all in just 1 click. Let’s take a look at each of the collections below with a few before and after photo examples.
It is an understatement to say that many photographers use Photoshop, that’s why it takes a special flair to stand out from the crowd. Most anyone can import elements into their photos, but few can approach the level of creativity that Buenos Aires-based art director and digital artist Martin De Pasquale is able to achieve.
