This Service Guarantees Rain-Free Wedding Photos for $100K

A cloud-clearing company tells us the sky is no longer the limit 

Worrying about the forecast on your big day? A company called Oliver’s Travels has a $100,000 solution for you.

The company is currently available to customers who are planning a destination wedding in France, but they plan to expand to the UK and Italy if the concept takes off. 

They offer a cloud clearing service that ensures your perfectly-posed photos won’t turn into soggy messes. The company uses a process called “cloud seeding,” which involves an airplane releasing silver iodide (a chemical compound) into the clouds. The chemical causes the clouds to quickly create rain, and then disappear completely.

While a guaranteed rain-free day to shoot outdoor portraits seems tempting, this service comes with a steep price tag and some unpredictable environmental repercussions.

The company claims this process does not harm the environment, but this is the first time that cloud seeding has been used for weddings. Not having the data to back up its safety, it could end up being riskier than just crossing your fingers for sun.

You have to book the service three weeks in advance and there are no refunds, so if it happens to be miraculously sunny at the time of the ceremony, you're basically paying a tenth of a million dollars for nothing.

While it is pretty amazing that you can now personally manipulate the weather, we might recommend investing in a tent, unless you want your forecast to read: really, really broke.

Watch a Camera Shutter Action in 10,000 fps Slow-Motion

Watch a Camera Shutter at 10,000 fps slow motion

A fascinating look inside our gear in super-slo-mo

Most of us know how to work a camera. But, it can be a lot trickier to know how a camera actually works. This video from the Slo-Mo Guys gives a nice insight into what's happening when you take a picture or shoot a video.

I won't go on for too long here in terms of text because it's a 7-minute video and you're better off just watching the darn thing, but once you're done just remember how complex the machines we use every day really are. Amazing.

DJI Camera Drone Update Won’t Allow Flight In Washington DC Area

DJI Drone No-Fly Zone

After a drone accident at the White House, DJI is further enforcing its No-Fly Zone tech

Earlier this week, you likely heard about a small DJI drone that crashed on White House property. It was reportedly the work of a drunk man out messing with his quadcopter, but the folks in Washington took it very seriously. DJI is apparently taking it very seriously as well, as they're including Washington DC's No-Fly zone in their upcoming flight restriction plan.

The plan comes in the form of a mandatory firmware update. It's "mandatory" in that if you want any new features, you'll also need to enable the No-Fly Zone. If you don't apply the update, well, you're flying at your own risk. The program is actually meant to keep drone pilots from getting themselves into this kind of trouble. It would automatically identify restricted areas for unmanned aircrafts and keep away. 

It's an interesting idea and one that seems to make a lot of sense for DJI. As drone usage increases, the battle over where they are and aren't allowed. Keeping them out of no-fly zones at the firmware level might seem a little restricting to some flyers, it may also help keep the overall drone piloting restrictions from being tightened at the top. 

It will be interesting to see how the aerial photography community reacts to the update. But, hey, at least you can still send them into volcanoes

Kickstarter: Brevitē Bag is a Camera Bag That Looks Like a Normal Backpack

Finally, a camera bag that is both fashionable and functional

Searching for the perfect camera bag to haul your gear in often feels like searching for a unicorn. For many photographers there seems to be no happy medium between fashion and function—attractive bags tend to be incredibly expensive and can be cumbersome to carry around for long periods of time, while backpacks that are big enough to hold everything can end up being so bulky that it looks like your heading out for a week's stay in the wilderness. 

Luckily a new Kickstarter campaign from three Boston brothers is looking to change that. The Brevitē bag is a camera bag that is designed to look like a normal backpack. The product was inspired by a photography student who, like so many of us, was frustrated. "After searching endlessly for a protective camera bag that has both aesthetics and utility, we at Brevitē decided to design and build our own," the brothers behind the new bag write on the site. 

The bag appears to be quite well done: It's a classic design made of nylon and synthetic leather. A removable protective insert fits into the front pocket and looks like it can carry two DSLR bodies or a single DSLR body and an extra lens. A side door allows for easy camera access in the field, a tripod can be attached either to the side or bottom of the pack, there is a laptop sleeve and other technical features like a lens cap buckle on the strap and other small pockets to store personal items. 

The bag will retail for $180 when it is released, but if you order through Kickstarter you can pick one up for only $155.

Kickstarter: Prynt Turns Your Smartphone into a Mobile Printer

It's like a Polaroid for your smartphone 

Prynt, the smartphone case that turns your phone into a portable printing station, launched their Kickstarter campaign yesterday and have already passed their goal by 500 percent. 

Prynt is compatible with iPhone 5/5s, iPhone 5C and iPhone 6, as well as Android Galazy S4 and the Galazy S5. A special heat activated paper called Zink is loaded into the case, you snap the picture and within seconds Prynt spits out your picture.

We saw prototype models on these cases on the showroom floor at CES and were impressed by their speed and non-bulky design—the quality of the photos it printed were also quite nice. Prynt works a lot like the Fujifilm Instax printer, expect the cost of making a print is significantly lower—since you're dealing with thermal paper rather than instant film packs. 

Although the limited early-bird deals with the first shipping dates have already sold out online, there is still time to pick up a Prynt case and a 10-sheet paper pack for $99. Estimated delivery for Prynt cases ordered through Kickstarter are expected October 2015.

Kickstarter: Moment Case Makes iPhone 6 Into an Interchangeable-Lens Camera

This new case would make shooting with the iPhone 6 even better 

A new iPhone case from the creators of Moment Lenses wants to make shooting with your iPhone similar to shooting with an interchangeable-lens compact (ILC). The product launched on Kickstarter yesterday and has already passed it's funding goal, which is good news for mobile photographers.  While there are plenty of awesome lenses on the market that you can mount to your phone, it can be cumbersome to remove protective cases to attach magnetic lenses. Sometimes with all that fumbling you actually end up missing whatever shot you were trying to capture. 

The Moment Case eliminates the need for a metal plate to attach a lens, and with any luck will also put an end to missing shots. The case has a special stainless steel interface for Moment lenses, a feature that also makes it safer to keep a lens attached to your phone in between shots. The case is able to detect when the lens has been attached via Bluetooth, and if you are shooting through the free Moment app, the lens and case combo will give you more control.

Another cool feature is the electronic shutter button that mimics the shutter on DSLR cameras and ILCs. The shutter on the Moment Case features half and full press features—pressing half way down allows you to lock focus and exposure and holding the shutter all the way down activates burst mode. There is an option to attach a wrist strap or neck strap to the case too, so there is less worry of shattering your phone while attempting to get an awesome shot.

For the time being the Moment Case is only available for iPhone 6, but cases for more phone models may be available at a later date. If you back the project soon, you can snag the case for only $49. If you donate $125 to the campaign, you can pick up the case and a lens (18mm wide or a 60mm tele). The cases are estimated to ship in June.

New Gear: Manfrotto Off Road Backpack, Tripods, and Walking Sticks

Manfrotto Off Road Backpack

Durable new accessories from Manfrotto are made for outdoor enthusiasts

Adventure bags make up the most popular and active segment of the camera bag market at the moment, and Manfrotto is officially releasing their new Off Road series, which we got a peek at during Photo Plus last year. They also have a few new Off Road accessories, including some outdoor-specific tripods (this is Manfrotto after all), and a line of walking sticks that can support a camera.

The walking sticks may actually be the most interesting part of the whole product announcement. They were created in conjunction with well-known company Fizan, and weigh less than a pound. They cost $99, but they include a camera mount on top of one of the poles, so if you want to stop and take a picture once you've reached a certain part of your hike, you can do it with a sturdy, transforming monopod. It holds up to 5.5-pounds of camera gear, so it's not replacing a dedicated monopod, but that's not the idea.

The Off Road Tripod is built with a similar level of portability in mind. It has a folded diameter of just 5 centimeters and it weighs less than 1.5-pounds. It has spiked feet for solid traction on unstable terrain and the click wheel system for easily attaching and removing the camera plate. It can hold up to 5.5-pounds of gear as well, so it's not meant for huge telephoto rigs, but it could be great for landscape shooting. It costs $149 and comes in a variety of colors.

The Off Road backpack is a typical adventure-oriented set-up, offering a top compartment for non-camera supplies and a bottom, reinforced area for protectiong your photographic payload. It has an air gap system to keep your back from sweating to death as you walk and an abundance of straps, including chest and waist supports, to make it easy to carry long distances. You can also unzip the divider and take out the camera padding if you just want to use it as a typical camping pack. It costs $199.

High Falls

By Jakub Sisak When hiking up to the falls the weather was so miserable I contemplated turning around but I persisted and when I finally saw the vista that opened up before me I had to try capturing it no matter what the conditions. This certainly was not an easy photo to take; long exposure in drizzling rain and mist coming off the falls and having to clean the front element and the ND filter while lying in mud proved challenging.

Skies Above Marshall Point

By Stephen Ippolito I took this image in August of 2014 on a trip up to Maine for a private photography workshop. The skies over The lighthouse were spectacular with shooting stars and Milky Way Galaxy rising overhead. The light and shadows coming out of the top of the lighthouse was so picture perfect and surreal.

Video: Macro Photos Reveal Beauty of Mundane Objects

Who knew a piece of spaghetti or a grain of sugar could be so pretty? 

Macro photography is a way to explore the unfamilar aspects of our very familiar world. Getting extremely close often means finding beautiful and strange details.  A new video from Pyanek  called "Amazing Worlds Within Our World," pushes that concept to its limits, highlighting the details that would otherwise go unseen.

The photographer used a Canon T3i (600D/Kiss X5) with the kit lens reveresed to make these images. Editing was done in HeliconFocus for focus stacking and final adjustments were made in Lightroom and Exposure 5. 

Watch the video below to see mundane objects like ballpoint pens, kitchen sponges and pieces of food take their closeup.

11 Peores Errores de Enfoque Fotográfico [Y Cómo Evitarlos]

No sé si alguien se habrá dedicado a hacer un estudio sobre el promedio de errores que necesitamos como fotógrafos para aprender fotografía, cuántos millones de catástrofes, de fotos inservibles habremos tenido que disparar hasta empezar a conseguir mejores imágenes, fotografías sin errores, cuántas hasta ser capaces de anticiparnos a nosotros mismos y solucionarlos antes […]

¿Hay Algo Peor Que Disparar en “Modo Automático” Con Una Cámara de Fotos Réflex?

Encontrándome de vacaciones, estoy dando un agradable paseo matutino por una ciudad que no conocía. Me paro en medio de un histórico puente a contemplar el bello paisaje que ocupa todo el horizonte. El río, el sonido del agua, una gozada. Hace un día magnífico, de esos que me gustan porque hace frío pero unos […]

Photographer Suing Nike Over the Origins of the Famous Jordan “Jumpman” Logo

Nike Jordan Logo Photo

The iconic image behind the iconic image behind the iconic logo

It may not be quite as iconic as the "swoosh," but Nike's Jordan "Jumpman" logo surely resonates with several generations of fans. Now, photographer Jacobus Rentmeester is suing Nike, claiming that they ripped off his original photo and concept, offering him little compensation for a logo that's representative of a billion dollar business.

Rentmeester is an extremely well-known sports photographer and shot many editorial gigs for Life and other publications. The original Jordan shots were taken for Life magazine prior to 1984, so while Jordan was a very hot prospect, he hadn't achieved the iconic status he would later develop.

According to the suit, Nike paid Rentmeester $150 to temporarily use two of the slides. Then, Nike apparently shot their own version of a similar photo a year later and used that as the basis for the actual logo. One lawsuit later and Nike paid Rentmeester $15,000 to license the image.



Now, it looks like the whole thing is going back to court.

Many of the internet comments are quick to point out how long it has been since the original shot was taken. The whole controversy is more than 30 years old at this point. But, it will be interesting to see how it plays out.



Frankly, both versions of the photo are just terrific. Rentmeester's shot is incredibly dramatic, using outdoor strobes and slide film, which certainly isn't the easiest task. The super-dramatic pose also obviously struck a chord, as well.

What do you think of the case? Will he see any more money out of Nike? Should he?

Video: NHL Players Wearing GoPros Brings Awesome POV Action

Ever wonder what it's like to have a slapshot headed toward your face?

A few months ago the NHL began using GoPro's to capture incredible POV shots for game promo, but starting this weekend players will be wearing the action cameras on the ice during the NHL All-Star Skills Competition and Sunday's All-Star game. 

Although GoPro's have long been a fixture in individual action sports such as skateboarding, snowboarding and surfing—this deal with the NHL is the first time GoPro is working with a professional sports league, and the POV shots are pretty incredible. 

"I think it would be very interesting for the viewer to get a better understanding of what I see and how I track pucks," Henrik Lundqvist, goaltender for the New York Rangers says in the video. More like awesome, Henrik. 

Check out the footage from the ice in the video above.

Sports Illustrated Lays Off All Staff Photographers

The six remaining photographers lost their jobs yesterday 

Another photo department at a major magazine has blinked out of existence—a story that is all too common in today's media world. According to NPAA, yesterday the six remaining staff photographers at Sports Illustrated lost their jobs as Time Inc. undergoes major restructuring.

"Unfortunately economic circumstances are such that it has cut the six staff photographers," Brad Smith, Sports Illustrated's Director of Photography, told the NPAA. " Smith said that he hoped the six photographers would continue to contribute to the magazine "under slightly different circumstances." 

"Our commitment to photography hasn't changed," he said. "We're still going to cover games, we're going to shoot portraits, we're going to cover Olympics, we'll be at the Final Four, we will be at championships, we'll be there."

The photographers who lost their jobs yesterday include: Robert Beck, Simon Bruty, Bill Frakes, David E. Klutho, John W. McDonough, and Al Tielemans.

The Tamron 15-30mm F/2.8 DI VC Lens Gets Pricing and Availability

Tamron 15-30mm F/2.8 Full-Frame Zoom Lens Photokina 2014

The lens will start shipping at the end of this month and will cost $1,199

We first heard about the new Tamron 15-30mm F/2.8 DI VC lens back at Photokina 2014. We got a chance to check out the feel of it as well as the really impressive protective coating that covers the front element of the lens to avoid fingerprints and other grime accumulation. What we didn't have, however, was the price. Now, it's available for pre-order online for $1,199 and will start shipping at the end of January.

I think this is pretty much where everyone expected this lens to land, which makes it an interesting alternative to the first party Canon and Nikon options. It's cheaper than the Canon 16-35mm F/2.8 even though the Tamron adds VC. It's also a full stop faster than the 16-35mm F/4L IS despite checking in at the same exact price.

On the Nikon side of things, it's considerably cheaper than the 14-24mm F/2.8 (though, that's a tough lens to beat in terms of image quality at that focal range), and still a little cheaper and one stop faster than the Nikon 16-35mm F/4 VC. 

We're really looking forward to seeing how the lens performs in our test lab and we'll share the results as soon as they're available.
