How to Photograph This Year's Most Astonishing Natural Wonders

For landscape and nature photographers, there’s a long list of natural occurrences happening in 2020 worth traveling for, notes Outside, which features a primer on shooting everything from wildflowers in Crested Butte, Colorado (there’s a wildflower festival from July 10 to 19, featuring wildflower-specific photography classes), to Yosemite National Park’s famous Firefall, which occurs in late February, when snow conditions and clear skies make Horsetail Falls glow red, giving the illusion that it’s on fire.

America was a different country five years ago. In 2015, PPD profiled photojournalist Mark Peterson as he was covering a nascent presidential campaign that featured GOP primary candidates Jeb Bush, Ted Cruz, and Rand Paul. At that point Donald Trump was not even on the radar. A year later, he was elected president. Meanwhile, that same year, 2016, Peterson photographed a rally in New York City led by far-right political pundit Gavin McInnes protesting Sharia law. "I wondered, why is there a rally in New York about Sharia law? What's happening here?" says Peterson. His resulting project on white nationalism shows, as New York magazine recently put it, "the threat of domestic terrorism can't be ignored."

Welcome to the "Roaring 20s." The 2020s, that is. Stock giant Shutterstock has released its ninth annual Creative Trends Report, which identifies "global and local trends that will influence design aesthetics and visual culture" in the year ahead. Based on data collected from billions of searches for images, footage, and music content by Shutterstock customers around the world, this year's report singles out three major creative trends peaking now: a yearning for "Roaring 20s" lavishness; a fascination with occulture and magic; and a taste for bright blooms. Also on the rise: "Cannabiz," "Minimalist Black," and "Wildlife."

The Real Stories Behind Those Viral Australian Bush Fire Photos

Last week we spotlighted photographs documenting Australia’s bushfire crisis. Now Elle magazine speaks with five female photojournalists who have been “battling flames and ash and fire tornados on the ground” to capture images of the fires: Michaela Skovranova (National Geographic); Kate Geraghty (Sydney Morning Herald); Jessica Hromas (The Guardian); Cassie Trotter (Getty Images); and freelancer Tracey Nearmy, who says, “The scale and magnitude of the crisis is overwhelming and covering it requires strategy and planning.”

In the future, will we see stars? Last year, photographer and filmmaker Asif Islam of Asif Photography set out to capture an 8K timelapse that would show the impact of light pollution. So he traveled from one end of the spectrum, so to speak, to the other, traveling from the bright lights of Los Angeles to the Great Basin Desert of the western U.S., one of the least light-polluted places on Earth. The result is the timelapse "Where are the Stars?" We feature it today, along "Ancestral Nights," a new timelapse from the filmmakers behind the Skyglow Project, which aims to fight light pollution.

Nikon Unveils the D780: A 'New Kind of DSLR' with 'Mirrorless Tech'

Nikon calls its newly unveiled D780 “a new kind of DSLR.” The camera, notes PetaPixel, has the task of replacing the company’s most popular full-frame DSLR ever, the D750, and it aims to do so by combining the soul of the Z6 mirrorless camera with the body of the D750. The D780 features a 24.5-megapixel backside-illuminated (BSI) full-frame FX-format CMOS sensor powered by an EXPEED 6 image processor (up from EXPEED 4 in the D750). The processing engine is the same as that found in the Z6 and Z7 full-frame mirrorless cameras, providing faster speed, lower energy usage, and improved low-light performance.

The details are all there in his notebooks: Sixty-three years ago, on the evening of Jan. 10, 1957, Harold Edgerton set a 4,000-volt electronic flash of his own design to the right of a small, shallow pool of milk in his "Strobe Lab" at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Edgerton, often called the father of high-speed photography, then released a drop of milk from a funnel 8 inches above the pool, which reflected a bright red background. An image of the drop that Edgerton made would later be called one of the 100 most influential pictures ever taken. Now, three decades after Edgerton's death, his pioneering work has been collected in the book "Harold Edgerton: Seeing the Unseen."

Canon Unveils the 1D X Mark III, Its New Ultimate DSLR

Canon has announced the 1D X Mark III, the company’s new flagship DSLR and successor to the 1D X Mark II , which was announced in early 2016. The camera features a 20.1-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor with a newly designed High Detail Low-Pass Filter and Canon’s DIGIC X image processor, notes PetaPixel. The ISO range is now 100 to 102400 (up from 100-51200 in the Mark II) and is expandable to 50-819200. The autofocus system is a new 191-point optical viewfinder AF system (with 155 cross-type points) that uses Deep Learning Technology to track a subject’s head and face. DP Review says the big, double-grip DSLR functions as a highly capable mirrorless camera in Live View mode.

Unmissable Night Sky Events in 2020

An important part of photographing astonishing sights in the night sky is planning ahead of time, notes Fstoppers, which features a helpful video from astrophotographer Alyn Wallace listing the unmissable night-sky events for the year ahead, from meteor showers to super moons and eclipses. He also tells you the hemisphere in which these events will be visible.

A large part of photographing specific events is planning. Obviously, being in the right place at the right time is the key to successfully photographing an event that occurs only at particular places and times, but you can only plan when you know something is going to happen. Alyn Wallace has put t...

John Baldessari, Who Gave Conceptual Art a Dose of Wit, Is Dead at 88

John Baldessari, the influential conceptual artist who helped transform Los Angeles into a global art capital through his witty image-making and decades of teaching there, died on Jan. 2 at his home in Venice, CA, notes The New York Times. He was 88. Baldessari started as a semiabstract painter in the 1950s but grew disenchanted with his own handiwork — in 1970 he cremated his paintings at a San Diego funeral home — and later embraced a wide range of mediums, including videos and photography.

Through his hybrid works and teaching, he helped build the Los Angeles art scene, mentoring a who’s who of contemporary artists.

Norm Diamond happened upon Doug's Gym by accident. A retired Dallas physician, Diamond was walking down Commerce Street in the city when he saw a beautifully dilapidated two-story building and a 1950s-era gold-and-black sign for the establishment. Perhaps it was merely aesthetics that drew him inside: Diamond, who has studied photography with Cig Harvey and other artists, decided to document the gym, with its peeling paint and sagging floors. But the images he ended up making, now collected in a book, are more than skin deep: The project, Diamond notes, allowed him to face loss, something he hadn't been able to do as a doctor.

In photos: Bushfires rage through Australia

Deadly bush fires are burning across Australia, exacerbated by strong winds and a record-breaking heat wave as the country experiences one of its worst droughts in decades, notes CNN, which features a portfolio of news service photographs that capture the disaster. Among the most memorable images: A photo of A kangaroo rushing past a burning house in Lake Conjola, Australia, on December 31, taken by Matthew Abbott (The New York Times/Redux). The fires threaten Australia’s way of life, adds CNN.

It's the end of an era. And it's time to look back at what we saw over the past ten years. "I was struck by the amount of devastation and pain the world has endured: the Haiti earthquake, the Deepwater Horizon explosion and oil spill, Benghazi, Ebola, the constant school shootings in the United States, the Las Vegas massacre," notes Bernadette Tuazon, CNN Digital's Director of Photography, in a roundup of memorable photos of the decade, one of several we feature today. On the other hand, adds Tuazon, there were moments of courage and inspiration.

2019 : The year of the face - Kaptur

“It’s been ten years since Instagram launched and not long after, the selfie. It has taken the same amount of time for visual recognition to understand how to read our faces. If anything, 2019 has been the year where faces have taken center stage of visual tech, for good and bad.” So writes photo and technology entrepreneur Paul Melcher in an informed looked back at a year in which facial recognition and AI-created faces made news.

If anything, our faces have been the center of attention of the visual tech in 2019. Here's why this might not be a good thing :

The app “has influenced photographic practice more widely," Moore adds, singling out the work of LGBQ artists including Ren Hang, women artists such as Collier Schorr, Laia Abril, Harley Weir and Carmen Winant, and others. “Instagram arguably forged the ‘attention economy’ that now dominates our culture,” writes Moore.

"When you look at them in the eyes, it's like your brother." That was how Belgian photojournalist Alain Schroeder described the experience of being near orangutans in Sumatra, Indonesia in late 2018 and early 2019, as he documented efforts to aid the critically endangered animals. The result was a profoundly moving series about a species that shares 96 percent of its DNA with humans. One of Schroeder's images -- showing a three-month-old orangutan being operated on by an esteemed Swiss orthopedic surgeon -- took top prize in the American Photography Open 2019 contest. We revisit Schroeder's winning work today as we we continue looking back at Pro Photo Daily highlights from 2019.

PLATO'S DUALITY https://utopiafiction.com Plato's 'Republic' contains many examples of "Duality". The most striking, philosophically speaking, is Plato's assertion about the existence of two worlds. The originality in the concept of the duality and existence of two worlds was in the development of his theory of the Forms. Plato describes in his Republic the existence of two parallel worlds. The first world is a reliable eternal world where nothing changes. And the second world in his view, our physical world, is a world in a state of constant change and therefore unreliable. Plato distinguishes between a sensible perceptible visible world (our world) and an intelligible (real) world. In the physical world in which we live, we perceive and understand with the assistance of our senses. Here, all objects are mere imitations or illusions. We cannot be satisfied in this world because it is not real. Therefore Plato argues, we must look into the second world which is the intelligible world, where everything is real, constant and everlasting. This is the world of the ideal true Forms. For Plato, this world is the world of good beauty and truth. And this world can not be understood by the senses only by reason. This is a perfect example of duality which by definition is the existence of two opposing parts, that sometimes have opposite meanings, as in the reliable and unreliable worlds of Plato. Plato uses many more examples of duality in his Republic. In Book I, for example, the reader is introduced to a debate about wealth justice moderation and their opposites. We should also remember that the word duality also refers to Plato's belief about the body and mind being two separate entities. Obviously, the body and mind oppose each other.

L.A. Photo Curator Call for Entry: 'Street Shooting' with curator Julia Dean. Deadline to enter Dec. 13. Julia Dean is a photographer, educator, writer, and executive director/founder of the Los Angeles Center of Photography. Prospectus: http://www.laphotocurator.com/current-call-for-entry-street-shooting-curator-julia-dean-deadline-december-13-2017 Dean says, "This call is looking for photographs taken on the street, in Los Angeles or around the world. What is street photography? It is candid moments on the street or in any other public place such a grocery store, a mall, or a park. It is chance encounters and random incidents in public places. Street photography generally focuses on people and everyday life and shares the same ethics as photojournalism and documentary photography, meaning nothing is set up or changed in the digital darkroom. Street portraits are also considered to be street photography and like photojournalism, portraits are the only type of photograph that can be set up. Some street photographers shoot in an artful way, with shadows and light. Others shoot like a newspaper photographer, concentrating on moments among people on the street. Don’t just photograph someone walking down the sidewalk. The genre is saturated with these images. Look for unusual locations and aesthetically pleasing backgrounds. The background content is as important as the subject. The combination of the two makes the picture. Do not photograph anyone less fortunate than yourself, meaning no photos of homeless people unless you can make a strong social statement." 20% of artist fees go to charity. 10% to the curator's charity and 10% to the first place winner's charity. Dean has chosen the SPARK program. www.sparkprogram.org $20 for 3 images. ALL entrants work is shown on their own page with their artist statement, website info, portions of their bio and CV. First Place winner receives Q & A with curator. Curator reviews first place winner. One or more past curators may contribute reviews as well. 10% of artist fees goes to the first place winner's charity. The first place image is on our splash page for a month.
