Photos of the day

Once again picture editors from The Guardian curates a collection of their hand picked photographs for the day. Some of which evokes so much feeling and portrays so much more depth in the realism they originate from. I would definitely hope you folks would go to their link here for more of the photographs. Again, credits to the photographers and the picture editors from The Guardian.

Instagram DIRECT

Most of you folks out there would have experienced the new updates from Instagram, allowing you to send direct messages and videos to your peers. This has undoubtedly created quite a buzz, as the social sharing app now enhance it’s offerings to a next new level. While the idea isn’t exactly new, it is pretty much a necessity given the competition of apps that is available. With these features embedded into Instagram, it allows the app to have more versatility and hence, clocked more ‘app-time’ from it’s users. These days, with the increasing amounts of apps, we are spoilt for choices and those who are adventurous enough, would explore multiple apps. As much as one could do, each individual have got a limited amount of time on their smartphone each day, and I would indefinitely want one that has as much integrated functions as possible. For picture sharing social app, Instagram direct nails it.

The 10 best photographs

I refer to a post from theguardian uk today which features 10 best photographs of the day, which in my opinion was really good. Photography can be an addictive hobby and in return it favors those who puts in their hard work to achieve amazing results. A great photographer not only chooses the best time of the day for his shots, he could work his way along so many other minute details that he wishes to include in his work. Every piece of photograph could encompass a story, an emotion or even a message behind it. Check these 10 photographs from theguardian.

Kyle Thompson’s work speaks a lot for itself. Nice photography of course, but what it gives is more than what we could fathom. As the saying goes, “You cannot give what you do not have”. This photographer’s work is pretty interesting and he has given us a bit more than the usual. A lot of thoughts goes down your mind as you look at his work. Would love to see more of his stuffs.

I happen to chance upon an artist’s work on Behance which are extremely beautiful. The images I see reflects a great deal of how light was able to make pictures look so amazing. Some of the shots were dynamic while some managed to capture a different composition of colors. The artist’s comments were:

All these landscapes are photographed in the total dark, i light it up with car light and flashlight. So its a one single exposure shot around 30sec and minimal retouch ( minimal color correction )
These photos are available on 24 x 30 po lamda in serie 25 signer and numeroted. There is also a certificate of authencity. Contact Gbuffer@msn.com

I love how good photographers manage to capture the essence of every movement and detail. Now, we could see all these in one picture. The Red Bull Illume Image Quest 2013 photography contest is meant for capturing images in action as well as adventure sports. The ‘Sequence’ category allows participants to feature their work which had images portraying action during sport. It aims to capture the progression of the sport and that the entire story could be depicted in one single frame. This is possible with the GoPro camera. Check out these awesome photos that captures a beautiful scenic imagery accompanied by the actions. They are pretty interesting and a different way to see a picture. I wonder what determines a great action captured photo?
