Back in November of last year, we featured a project by photographer Max de Esteban titled Proposition One that consisted of pseudo-X-Ray photos of deconstructed gadgets. Max carefully deconstructs old gadgets, coats them with white spray paint, and puts them back together while photographing each step. He then spends 2-3 weeks combining all the different layers together to create a see-through view of each gizmo. The behind-the-scenes video above shows one of his images being made.

To celebrate Google+’s one year anniversary, photographer Alex Koloskov and retoucher Genia Larionova teamed up on a photo project to recreate the Google logo using photographs of paint. They tossed paint matching the colors of each letter into the air multiple times and picked out the best shapes, which were then combined in Photoshop.

Often, getting the perfect shot requires months of planning, the right gear, and the know-how to properly capture that perfect moment when it comes along. But just as often, there’s an element of luck involved. When Florian Schulz took the incredible picture that wound up on the cover of One World One Ocean’s To The Arctic 3D companion book, it initially seemed like nothing had turned out.
Scrolling through his pictures it looked like they were too far away in the safety of their boat for the wireless remote to work. But then he caught sight of the few photos he had managed get, and his jaw dropped. Suffice it to say they had to get the bleep button ready when that happen.

Of the photographs that emerged after the recent solar eclipse on May 20th, there aren’t many that are more epic than the “Ring of Fire” photo captured by Michael Chow of The Arizona Republic. In an interview with Dallas News, Chow reveals that the photograph was birthed rather spontaneously. Shooting the eclipse in Phoenix’s Papago Park — a hiking area he knows well — Chow noticed a group of people standing on a butte a quarter mile away. He parked his car, ran across some desert, and snapped the photograph using a Canon 1D Mark IV and 400mm lens at 1/6400 — all while doing his best to avoid looking at the sun directly.

When Hamburg, Germany-based photographer Florian Bison first saw a video of parkour, he was mesmerized by the concept and curious as to how he could integrate it into a photography project. That’s when he came up with the Double Gravity series, a mixture of real and parkour/camera created gravity. The video above offers a behind-the-scenes look at how he created the final product, which was shot using a Nikon D700 with a Nikkor 24-70mm F/2.8 lens and a Pocket Wizard triggered Profoto B2 with two Profoto heads.
