Keith over at Northlight Images has completed his review of the Samyang/Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 lens. This lens retails for $329 USD, compared to Canon’s $2395 EF 14mm f/2.8L II. If you’re in the market for an ultrawide angle lens for your full frame camera, and don’t mind doing a bit of work yourself, this may...

There are all sorts of statistics we can look up to tell us how the photography industry is doing and whether or not smartphones really are going to steamroll the market (spoiler alert: it’s not as bad as some make it out to be). One source of information that probably doesn’t cross your mind, however, […]

Reuters’ photographers captured some incredible photographs in 2013, and now that the year is wrapping up, it’s only fitting that they compile the best of them into a Photos of the Year slideshow that will hopefully inspire you to take on your photographic goals with renewed vigor in 2014. The photos range in subject matter […]

Carli Davidson‘s photos and slow motion video of dogs shaking off water and spittle have been a huge hit with people all over the world. In October, the photos were even immortalized in a book by the same name, and while she was working on that book, Nikon caught up with her at her Portland, […]

Jeremy Jackson, a photographer from Virginia, USA who goes by the handle of tackyshack on Flickr is one of the first light painting masters I got to meet here on DIYP. And what a ride it has been. Jeremy's recent feature on Sploid encouraged me to check his Flickr stream again, and I was lost there for way too long.

These Incredible Light Paintings From Tackyshack Have Nothing To Do With Photoshop

Light painting, for the ones who are not familiar with the term is the art of doing long exposures while waiving different sources of light at various object (including the camera). The hard core artists (like tackyshack) never ever use Photoshop, and this is the case with the photos displayed here.

We are going to have a full light painting resource list at the bottom, but till then, sit back and enjoy this miraculous SOOC (strait out of camera) explosion.

Editor’s Note: There is a bit of strong and suggestive language used in a few of the scenes. The Pro Photog Cheap Camera Challenge is one of our favorite segments that the folks over at DigitalRev put together. Beyond just proving the point that it’s the photographer, and not the camera, that makes great pictures, […]

Here’s a cool holiday chart that only us photo types will appreciate. It was put together by Sigma Jack and Sigma’s in-house ‘design wiz’ Emi Erata, and shows the entire Sigma lens lineup arranged by size and placed next to some to-scale objects so you can visualize just how large some of these behemoths are. […]

When it comes to iconic imagery, there are few individual photographers who can best NASA. From the pale blue dot, to the blue marble, to the amazing photo of Bruce McCandless II floating out into space on the first ever untethered space walk, NASA’s got quite a repository of amazing imagery. One of those iconic […]

The latest camera flash by LumoPro, the LP180 Quad-Sync Manual Flash, comes in a padded carrying pouch, with a stand, specially cut Rosco color-correction gels, and a sync cable. It recycles in four seconds on NiMH batteries, and one second on high-voltage battery power.
