Canon Rebates, A Ton of Light and Amazing Images in Today’s Photography News Round-Up.
If you’re still in the shopping spirit, Canon is offering rebates on the 7D, 60D and Rebel camera with certain lens combinations.
You might remember a past blog post about different services photographers can use to check if their images are being used without permission. Well, now there’s an extension in Mozilla that lets you search various reverse image engines with just a couple of clicks of your mouse.
You have got to check out this commercial by Vincent Laforet. He used 225,000 watts of light to shoot at 600 frames per second. Be sure to check out the behind the scenes video too. I wrote more about it on the PetaPixel blog.
I’ve been following the story of New York Times photographer Joao Silva since he stepped on a landmine in Afghanistan. When the story first broke, reports said he kept shooting after the explosion. Now The Times has published the photos leading up to the explosion and the frames he shot just after. Amazing.
I saw this last week, but didn’t want it to get lost in the Black Friday madness. National Geographic is holding its annual photo contest. You can see some of the submissions with captions from the photographers.
If you liked that gallery then you might like Reuters Strange and Unusual pictures of the year.
Lastly, I’ve mentioned The Still Image with Crash Taylor [WARNING: FIRST IMAGE NSFW] in a past blog post. I really like the images because the photographers describe the creative process including equipment, settings and post-process techniques.
That’s it for today! Enjoy.
