Though it appears as though this is two drops of water, it is actually only one drop. An air bubble was placed inside the water using a straw, then Kuipers posed behind the drop just right for the photograph.
It can sometimes be difficult to photograph unique and creative images when shooting nature and wildlife, especially for photographers just getting started. There are a lot of technical and creative decisions to be made that may not be apparent.
Johnson shot this image by setting his shutter speed to 1-2 seconds and adjusting the manual focus/zoom while the firework exploded. He waited until he heard a firework, and then shortly before it exploded, he triggered his shutter, starting with the lens out of focus and gradually bringing it into sharp focus.
Photographer Brent Humphreys and his team recently had the chance to work on a huge photo project for AARP Magazine about crisis moments and how to survive them. The large scale project had them coming up with feasible ways to capture four completely possible—and believable—scary moments.
Two years and thousands of miles later, this passion has led him from Jasper National Park in Alberta, Canada down to the border of Mexico and the desertscapes of Arizona and New Mexico, and back up again– all the while capturing spectacular mountain tops, canyons, and beaches through the lens of timelapse photography.
Native to the Indian subcontinent, rock eagle-owls are also commonly referred to as Indian eagle-owls or Bengal eagle-owls. They’re part of the Bubo genus, which includes many types of horned and eagle-owls, including the very similar Great Horned Owl that is native to the Americas. Owls have no natural predators. They generally hunt small birds and mammals, but they have been known to bring down prey the size of turkeys and dogs.
Selway and Kale travel six hours several times a week to photograph the wild beauty of volcanoes. The stunning images are backed by a profound appreciation and understanding for the task at hand. It’s a dangerous feat, as the volcanoes are constantly moving—spitting hot rocks, oozing molten lava, and creating extremely high water temperatures.
MELVILLE, NY — Today, Nikon announced the D810, the next benchmark in DSLR image quality for professional photographers and cinematographers.

We’ve all been there. You see the perfect photo out in the distance, but it’s just too far to capture with the lens that you brought. This is where a teleconverter comes into play. A teleconverter can take your lens and allow it to reach that extra distance for that special photo.
If you’re willing to make the trip and can bear the frigid, glacial temperatures, the Arctic Circle and its surrounding area might very well have some of the most beautiful, pleasantly chilling photo ops imaginable. Here, you can see how sub-freezing temperatures and driving wind and snow can turn a field of trees into a surreal, unearthly winter landscape.
