The photo histogram is that graph that looks like a mountain range with spikes shooting up at seemingly random places. The scary thing is that when you see it, it looks really technical. Most of us immediately try for the land speed record in turning it off.
We’ve seen a lot of timelapse videos on PictureCorrect this year, and with everybody experimenting and trying new things to push the envelope, you really have to think outside of the box to create something original.
Jovan “Bonna” Lamb grew up in Overtown, an historical black community in northwest Miami. As a poor inner city kid, his story was beginning to follow the tragic tale of many young men before him – including his brother. When he came into possession of a video camera, though, his life took on a new meaning.
Timelapse videos are great for showing how much or how little things have changed over the year. The BBC made their own version of a then and now segment featuring a train ride from from London and Brighton.
When temperatures rise, outdoor enthusiasts flock to the mountains, rivers, forests, and lakes to enjoy nature’s beauty. Unfortunately, arid summer months also mean wildfires for much of the American West.
With so many timelapse videos floating around the internet recently, you may be looking to create your own timelapse. Well look no further than Nathaniel Dodson‘s latest project Philly Is Ugly. Not only did Dodson spend months creating a beautiful timelpase of the city of Philadelphia, but he also took the time to create several tutorials showing the things he learned throughout the project:
That embarrassing moment when you know you’re in the wrong place at the wrong time — we’ve all been there, but rarely does it earn us instant Internet fame. The photo below captures the candid (and hilarious) moment: a young couple at Disneyworld is experiencing a magical moment (pardon the pun, but they are in front of Cinderella’s Castle) that is being captured on camera when a stranger finds himself in the way and nervously, awkwardly tries to duck out of the shot:
Thanks to modern technology, anyone anywhere can get a glimpse of life in other parts of the world. Pictures and movies help us daydream about what it would be like to spend a day in a place we’ve never traveled, all from the comforts of our own homes. This timelapse video of Cotonou, Benin’s largest city, is an armchair traveler’s dream:
A new documentary by ALLDAYEVERYDAY Films will offer an insider glimpse at the work of some of the most prominent street photographers of past and present. If the trailer is any indication, the film, entitled Everybody Street, will show how street photography captures life in all its facets — the fascinating and the bizarre, the disturbing and the violent, as well as the beautiful and the heartwarming. (Warning: some photos in the trailer below contain partial nudity.)
Quitting your day job, slinging a camera around your neck, and jetting off to travel the world and take beautiful pictures seems like the stuff bestselling memoirs and National Geographic documentaries are made of.
