There are most likely times you encounter red eyes on your models in your results when you photograph. This, in the world of photography, is known as the “red eye effect.” This is a common phenomenon that occurs because the light from the flash reaches the blood vessels behind the retina of the eye and would then be bounced off and captured by the camera lens. Simply put, it’s related to how the light from the camera flash bounces off the eyes.
The amount of light that reaches the retina is controlled by the pupil. When light received is bright, the pupil will dilate smaller so no excessive light will come through. On the other hand, if the pupil receive dim lighting, the pupil will widen to allow as much light into the retina. Between the retina and the sclera (the whites of the eye) is a layer of tissues called choroid that’s red in color. Read the rest of this entry » .

There’s a unique art style of photography during the Victorian era, the photography of the dead!
This photography styling is known as post-mortem photography and was very popular around the end of the 19th century. The main models of this art were human corpses whose families want to immortalize in the form of a photo, immortally dead in 2d format.
Before photographed, the corpses were positioned in a way that makes them look like they’re merely asleep. Family members would even sometime jump into the photo with the deceased, even as far as posing inside the casket with their passed loved one. Read the rest of this entry »
An English photographer named Andrew Whyte has dedicated himself into documenting the adventure of a brave LEGO figurine on his quest around the whole of England in the photo series titled “The Legographer.”
Andrew Whyte is actually better known for his expertise in using darkness as the background for his photos. By several medias, he’s been dubbed a maestro of low light. Also, he’s used his long exposure photography technique to crate some amazing photographs. But now, he’s on a mission to tell a different tale. Armed with his Lego character and his iPhone 4s, he’s on a 365-day project called “The Legographer.” This means he’ll be documenting every day for a year! A momentous dedication to achieve great results.
The photography technique used is actually quite simple. Even we can easily do it. What’s more important here is the imagination and the perfect composition. Andrew Whyte choose his smartphone camera instead of a DSLR or any other because the camera phone is more versatile to be carried everywhere. How much of a hassle would be to carry around a clunky professional DSLR and lenses 3 times the size of the iPhone. This just proves that creativity isn’t subject to how much high-tech gear you use.
Here are some of Andrew Whyte in “The Legographer” series: Read the rest of this entry »

Suddenly, he felt like wanting to do what they do, but the problem is he got no girlfriend to do so. Giving up? Nope. This traveler who is also a photographer and a writer got a brilliant idea. Instead of mourning over his fate, this guy took some photos pretending like being together with a girl (as if it was his girlfriend). The result was mind blowing. Keisuke really looked like taking photos with a woman. In one of the photos, it shows as if he was being feed by a fair handed girl with red-polished nails. In another photo, there is a woman’s head leaning on his shoulder on a train. Read the rest of this entry »
