Häagen-Dazs Ice Cream Lid Is Actually A Perfect 72mm Lens Cap

3

Most of us see ice cream as a way to fill our stomachs, but, as it turns out, it may also be used to protect your photography gear! One Japanese photographer has discovered that some of Häagen-Dazs ice cream container lids are perfect for 72 mm lenses. And, as his other colleagues have tested, the brand of the camera is not really important – it suits them all. We are often taught to think of ways to recycle or reuse things to help the environment. But this discovery proves that it can also benefit your sweet tooth!

There are more beautiful places in the world than any one person could ever hope to visit in their life. Thankfully there are dedicated photographers out there who spend their lives capturing these locales and landscapes with an eye for what makes them truly beautiful. Whether it’s getting the right angle, catching the sun’s rays, or simply being there at the exact, perfect moment, sometimes the photos of these places turn out more beautiful than if you had seen them in real life. Photos can’t capture many things, though. The true scale of something. The sights, the sounds, the smells of […]

Canon takes another shot at the mirrorless market with the EOS M10

Canon takes another shot at the mirrorless market with the EOS M10

Frankly, the new EOS M10 had us hunting through the specs for existing EOS M mirrorless cameras, not to check whether it had everything that’s in the EOS M3, launched earlier this year, but to see if or how it is different to the original EOS M released way back in 2012. There are differences. The EOS M10 has the same 18-megapixel resolution as the old EOS M, but it has Canon’s faster 49-point Hybrid AF II autofocus system (though not the Hybrid AF III system in the EOS M3). The EOS M10 also has a DIGIC 6 processor, Canon’s most […]

Sony a68 A-mount camera with 4D focus unveiled

Sony a68 A-mount camera with 4D focus unveiled

Sony has taken the bubblewrap off its new a68 camera that features A-mount lenses and 4D Focus. No, 4D focus doesn’t mean an ability to focus beyond time and see the future. Rather it’ll offer a hefty 79 autofocus points that should mean perfect focus no matter what the situation, even in EV-2 lighting. This is a level that other cameras struggle to capture, says Sony. Thanks to Sony’s Translucent Mirror Technology there is also constant autofocus tracking at up to eight frames per second for continuous shooting. The a68 comes with a 24-megapixel APS-C Exmor CMOS sensor with 100-25,600 ISO range […]

The Captivating Colors Of Wales By Paul Templing

Wales might be the most overshadowed country of the United Kingdom, but with its 2.700 km of coast and its large mountainous areas, it has nothing to envy to neighbors in the matter of beautiful nature and landscapes. Paul Templing is a Cardiff-based fine art photographer and musician dedicated to capture the vivid colors of this mysterious country. “While I work in a lot of different settings, including live music, it is with landscapes and seascapes that I have really found my strongest form,” said Paul for Tir-A-Môr Gallery. “But then, with so much spectacular scenery right on my doorstep, […]

I Photograph Modern Fairy Tales To Spread Enchantment And Joy

I Photograph Modern Fairy Tales To Spread Enchantment And Joy

Every other day I wake up, I see a tree-less, more concrete world, instead of grass, fields of sunflowers. Streets are turning into industrial zones with a lot of ugly buildings, rivers filling with garbage, children playing with tablets and computers. Nothing seems to bring joy nowadays, nothing is how I remember it was and nothing is how it’s supposed to be! In order to raise awareness about the environment and bring a dose of enchantment and joy, I wanted to create these photo sets which are inspired by the beautiful nature that surrounds us, a little of what’s left […]

I Turned A Baby Into A Zombie For His First Birthday

I Turned A Baby Into A Zombie For His First Birthday

As a professional newborn and baby photographer, I’ve had some pretty “interesting” requests over the years as I’ve captured portraits of hundreds of tiny humans. But this one takes the cake… Brain cake. We all know of the “Terrible Twos”, but has anyone heard of the “Undead Ones”? Neither had I. For my little client’s first birthday his parents requested a realistic zombie cake smash, complete with a custom brain cake. No makeup was involved, but lots of creative editing was needed to complete the vision. While this zombie theme might be a little too dramatic and gory for some, […]
