2014 iPhone Photography Award Winners Prove That Amazing Photos Can Be Taken Without An Expensive Camera | Machinimania | Scoop.it
With the advent of ever-improving smartphone camera technology, the digital SLR's exclusive dominance in the world of quality photography is slowly crumbling. Smartphone users around the world are proving that a good photographer's eye is far more important for taking a good photograph than your photographic hardware, so the IPPAWARDS (iPhone Photography Awards) were created to recognize the efforts.

Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's insight:

The photos in this competition, which was organized by Apple, need to have been taken with an iPhone, iPod or iPad and cannot have been edited on any way by desktop software (device-based apps are allowed).

Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's insight:

After a surfing trip to Australia in 2002, Nick Woodman decided to start a company dedicated to adventure photography. He wanted to save the bright surfing moments in photos to share them with friends. So the idea of a small waterproof and shockproof camera came to his mind. This GoPro camera can be worn on the wrist, ankle to create extreme pictures and videos.

35 Photographs of Abandoned Places: Where Eerie and Beautiful Overlap | DashBurst

35 Photographs of Abandoned Places: Where Eerie and Beautiful Overlap | DashBurst | Machinimania | Scoop.it

#pAbandoned places around the world make for some of the most stunning pictures, but they also have an eerie quality about them. These photos from the popular Twitter account Abandoned Places lead you to wonder about what the place was once like. Kings, queens, empires, cities and even architecture and infrastructure can fade from fame […]


Via Tiaan Jonker
Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's insight:

These photos of abandoned places remind us that nothing is everlasting or indestructible. They are proof that deserted buildings break down, and unused roads vanish as the earth reclaims what was once hers. So much of what’s man-made will eventually surrender to the greatest force around us, the force of nature.

We investigate the common problems that plague new photographers and offer some jargon-free beginner photography tips to avoid them.

Via Tiaan Jonker
Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's insight:

Although you can correct a lot of exposure errors in Photoshop, particularly using raw format files, it’s still better to get the results right in-camera as much as possible.

Even when converting raw images, there is a limit to how much highlight detail you can recover if you over-expose your images.


While it’s often possible to boost the detail in the shadows of an under-exposed shot, the result will be noisier and lower quality than if you correctly exposed it in the first place.

It is an image comprised of any number of images, sometimes up to 60, depending on how you plan your shots. Sounds complicated right? It’s really not. If you follow a simple plan, it’s actually pretty easy. It is all in having the correct workflow, so here it is.

One of the best things about Baran’s work is that it’s constantly evolving and growing. As such a young photographer, she’s still trying out different styles and inspirations.

What’s most important, however, is that all of them are creative and very well-done.
