One of the things I love about photography is how it can lead you to places and situations you’d never imagine possible. Pete Leong’s photoshoot is a perfect example of this. Pete is an Australian wedding photographer who lives in Okinawa, Japan and takes pleasure in shooting water sports and seascapes when he’s not shooting [...]

In this previous post I shared a bunch of street photography images. But not just any old random ones. They are images that were taken all around the world, but yet still have a common thread, a connection. They included:

  • Photographers shooting other photographers
  • Subways, taxis and transportation
  • Markets and vendors
  • And buskers or street... more

To me, black and white photography is one of the most mesmerizing art forms ever created and has the ability to draw a viewer into a scene like few others.  Swedish photographer Pekka Järventaus capitalizes on its detailed nuances in “Prowling with Lions,” an ongoing photography project focused solely around the lions of Africa.  Unlike some photographers [...]

Street photography is a popular genre which many photographers enjoy, just for the sake of doing photography. You can find many articles on it here on dPS. Let’s look at a few street photography images from around the world and see if we can’t find similarities, as well as differences between them all.

If we look at the progression of motion pictures over the last 100 years, it’s almost like night and day. (Then again, the same could be said for the last century of computer technology as well.) As we previously reported, Google is staying its course for diabolical virtual reality domination. Now, taking it one step [...]

The GoPro camera is virtually synonymous with action sports, and those with both legitimate and nefarious purposes have adapted it for a whole variety of uses.  Now that functionality is expanding thanks to the Seawolf, a new underwater remote operated vehicle that’s designed with GoPro integration in mind.  In other words:  a friggin’ GoPro submarine! Unveiled by TTRobotix at [...]

Some people love drones, others hate them. Hate them so much in fact that they can’t help themselves when they see one. The guys over at Lucky 7 Drones say they were busy shooting instructional videos on the DJI Phantom 3 when an intoxicated, half-naked neighbor decided to put an end to their day. “If [...]

Do you scout for potential photography locations online through sites like Flickr, Panoramio or 500px?

Of course you do! It’s easy, you get hundreds of photographs to look at of any given location, and you might even get some great ideas that you hadn’t thought about for subject matter or composition. So why am I asking you this question?

Well here’s another question for you…

Have you ever thought about the downsides of online photo scouting?
