Kensington Blues is a photography project by Jeffrey Stockbridge focusing on the residents who live along Kensington Avenue in North Philadelphia. During the nineteenth century Kensington Avenue was a symbol of prosperity- nationally recognized as a leader in the textile industry.
Today, Kensington Avenue is infamous for poverty, drug abuse and prostitution. Drugs such as Heroin, Crack and Xanax are sold out in the open. Addicts sell clean needles for a dollar a piece and prostitution has become a social norm. With the El train roaring overhead, Kensington Ave is in a state of perpetual hustle. Working with a 4x5 camera, Jeffrey has deliberately chosen a slow photographic process in order to slow down the rapid speed of life as it happens along the Ave. His work asks: 'How do people survive the neighborhood and themselves?' Jeffrey explores this theme with photography and first-person narratives of his subjects via audio recordings and journal entries.
If there is one thing I get asked, and that has been answered online time and again, it's "How do I get my photos to look like I want them to look on Facebook?" followed immediately by "Why does Facebook ruin my photos anyway?" and finally "I just want my photos to look awesome on Facebook." The bottom line is, Facebook does give us options, loopholes if you like, and we just need to adhere to them and our images will look stellar. But, what are these magical settings? I decided I was going to fuse my two careers together into one article, and explain it all as best I can.
Image series about the intuition that everything must change.

Carsten Witte, born in 1964, is the venerable priest of beauty. Already as a little boy of three he slack-jadedly gazed after beauties that where passing by when he was walking at his mother’s hand. Many years later, after he had attended the Bielefeld school of photography, worked as assistant for renowned photographers and started his career as a freelancer with his own studio in 1989, he could finally dedicate himself exclusively to his perfect esthetics at taking shots of beautiful woman’s bodies, their eroticism and chasteness and the sensual play of shadow and light, whereas he has never betrayed the deference to the beautiful creature.
Numerous national and international fashion and lifestyle magazines engaged the master of modern form finding and even in the advertisement Witte distinguished himself with the subtle and extremely reduced structures in his images. “It’s always faces that fascinate me and this mysterious purity of really beautiful people“, he said.
LR/Enfuse is a Lightroom plugin that allows you to blend multiple exposures together directly from within Lightroom by using the open source Enfuse application.
With LR/Enfuse you can:
Blend images of different exposures together in order to create a natural looking image with a greater dynamic range.
Blend a series of images where the focus point is difference in order to create an image with a greater depth of field - this is a common approach when creating a macro image.
Blend a series of images for night photography image stacking in order to create an image with a longer exposure than is possible with a single frame.
Images with long star trails require very long exposures, however the ambient light of a scene is often intense enough to limit the exposure to something much shorter. The sky and foreground thus often require two radically different exposures. The solution to this dilema is image stacking! Image staking allows you to take a lot of shorter exposures and combine them for a longer total exposure time with star trails.
San Francisco-based Swedish photographer Gabriel Isak creates surreal images featuring a dark, melancholic atmosphere. As he states on his Instagram, his life consist of the three: birds, ocean and the fog, which are also central elements in his photography. Gabriel Isak's objective is to bring his experiences to life in a way that's relatable to others. You can also follow him on Facebook.

Uncover a classic look hidden in your digital files
I don’t know about you, but sometimes I get a feeling that I was born either way too late or far too soon. It’s hard to keep up with how fast everything moves today. Sometimes I think I should have got started with photography when the first generation of great Magnum photographers did.
When analog still ruled.
But film is expensive. And I’m too fidgety to load up a camera. Plus, time-travel isn’t an option yet. So I’m stuck in this intense, present moment. So to get anything close to what film used to look like, I have to fiddle with Photoshop.
Ambition. Failure. Adversity. Love. Loss. Conviction. What forces drive one man to the presidency and another to become his assassin? Explore the dual paths of John F. Kennedy and Lee Harvey Oswald that ultimately crossed in Dealey Plaza.
I adore a good landscape image. And it goes without saying that few things can take your breath away quite like an incredible image of mountains, valleys, spires, oceans, even castles and cities. After all, what is larger than life, or at least larger than us, can be far more awe inspiring than most portraits. However, the craft of landscape photography is hardly a matter of planning a vacation and bringing a tripod, which is about where my landscape "skills" end.
