It was reported late last quarter of 2012 that Sony was preparing to unveil a full frame mirrorless camera within one year. We are now more than midyear into 2013, around halfway of that timeframe, and sure enough, the buzz is getting louder as rumors turn more into factual details regarding the emergence of the new model. A much clearer picture of the ground-breaking camera we will be seeing firms up as Sony gets ready to release its newest creation.
Los Angeles-based photographer Tim Tadder can be seen in his behind the scenes video explaining the philosophy that drives projects such as the bizarre Water Wigs. “If my images are my voice, I never want to be an echo. I always want to have a unique vision that people respect. You might love and you might hate it, but it’s my work and it’s different.” His work certainly supports the talk, with his Water Wigs collection. It is a creative explosion, both figuratively and literally.
Do you have any formal training in photography?
I took an “Intro to Black and White Darkroom photography” course in college (mainly because I destroyed the first roll of film I used in a manual camera by not pressing the release button… I figured I should learn how to use it properly, LOL!). Besides that, all of my education was on-the-job by way of assisting and experimenting on my own.
Photographer Egor N recently came up with a series of high speed shots called Coffee time. The collection is a captivating look at milk as it splashes naturally and unnaturally while being poured from or into a coffee cup. Egor N is no doubt a gifted professional photographer. He hails from Donetsk, Ukraine.
Alexander Semenov has built quite a reputation for his photographs of undersea wildlife. Recently, he created another underwater series depicting rather common creatures, but changed the perspective to come up with an exceptional view. Turning his camera upward, Semenov was able to create some captivating images of jellyfish. Seen from this angle against the contrasting sky, Semenov came up with some rather interesting effects. Pictured against the clouds and various sunsets, the jellyfish at times even seemed to be in airborne. In many images the water was so transparent that the jellyfish looked as if they were creatures of the sky, rather than the ocean.
Reykjavik-based photographer Frodi Brinks captures the visually majestic Iceland, featuring its vast landscapes masterfully. His series presents a spectacular view of the incredible country, all the more heightened in monochrome photography. The pictures which are absolutely stunning in black and white all exude an elegance that could not have been possible had they been shot in full color.
