We've seen plenty of videos of photographers capturing portraits during golden hour lighting conditions. It's often not too difficult to get really nice light when the sun is low. However, you don't always have the luxury of shooting during these times.

In parts of Ukraine, Belarus, Poland, and Russia, an ancient pagan summer rite called Kupala combined with the traditional Orthodox feast of Saint John the Baptist, becoming Ivan Kupala Night, a festival celebrating the summer solstice. On Ivan Kupala Night, young people wear wreaths symbolizing purity, people sing and dance around bonfires, and they bathe naked in rivers and lakes. Many gather up their courage and leap over fires as a test of faith, to purge themselves of their sins and bad luck, and to improve their health. Collected here, a handful of images from Ivan Kupala Night celebrations in [...]

Photographer and popular YouTuber Jessica Kobeissi recently did a golden hour natural light photoshoot with model Sydney Harper.

That's not to say natural light is only for beginners, of course, but it's... (read more) [...]

Robles, a Fujifilm X-Photographer, has an interesting personal history to go along with his diverse photographic portfolio. For 10 years, Robles worked as a mime. This training has given him a distinct approach to movement and eventually gave birth to his juxtaposing dancers against "rugged city landscapes." The combination of fluid motion and...

Click here to read our Nikon P1000 Preview If you're a fan of superzoom cameras, you're likely familiar with the Coolpix P900 from 2015. Sporting a record-breaking 83x optical zoom lens, this Coolpix redefined the term "superzoom." Well, Nikon's ready to break their own record with the Nikon P1000.

The Nikon P1000 has a zoom lens with a... [...]

Late on July 2, rescue teams discovered all of the boys and their coach alive and in relatively good health, sheltering deep inside the cave complex. Outside, family and friends, who gathered in recent days to pray, welcomed the news. While the boys have been found, extracting them from the cave still remains a difficult task—much of the [...]
