samsunggalaxycam2

While we’re on the subject of Android-powered cameras: Samsung announced a new camera model for its Galaxy lineup this past Tuesday. It’s called the Samsung Galaxy Camera (Wi-Fi). As you can probably guess from the name, it’s simply the original Samsung Galaxy Camera without the 3G/4G capabilities (and with a smaller price tag). In other words, you’ll have to rely on Wi-Fi for connecting to the Internet rather than subscribing to a data plan for your camera.

Faking It: The Difference Between Reality and an Airbrushed Finish

We hear it all the time: magazine covers aren’t real. These models and celebrities are made up, photographed by professionals and, most infamously, airbrushed to perfection. But there’s a big difference between hearing about it, and watching it happen with your own two eyes.

In this video, UK DJ Goldierocks plays guinea pig to show you what all goes into creating a magazine-worthy model shot — from hair and makeup to an artificially constructed waistline. Read more…

Photos of a Model Train Rumbling Across the Great Outdoors

Model train enthusiasts often photograph their miniature locomotives placed in realistic dioramas, but for his project titled “The Canadian: Ghost Train Crossing Canada,” photographer Jeff Friesen decided to use the real world as a backdrop. He photographs the train in various outdoor locations across Canada to capture its scenic journey. In some of the photos, its difficult to tell that the train is a tiny model rather than the real thing. Friesen says that his goal was to document the beauty of his huge country in a creative way.

Internet Slams Model for Using Hurricane Sandy Wreckage for Photo Shoot

A Brazilian model named Nana Gouvea is the latest person to feel the scorn of the Internet. After Hurricane Sandy plowed through New York City this past week, Gouvea decided that the wreckage presented the perfect opportunity to further her career. Going out into the devastation with her husband as a photographer, she posed for a photo shoot amidst downed trees and smashed cars. She then shared the resulting portraits through her Facebook page.

Needless to say, people didn’t respond very positively to the pictures. They quickly went viral, but in a bad way.

Leica Filed a Trademark Application for ‘M11′ in May of This Year

Like Porsche, Not Apple: Leica Cameras to Go By Type Rather than Generation

When Leica announced at Photokina last week that future M and S cameras won’t have numbers attached to the model name (e.g. Leica M), I wrote that the company seemed to be taking a page from Apple’s book by having generations rather than models. Turns out that’s not the case. Leica doesn’t want to be what Apple is to the gadget industry, but what Porsche is to the automobile industry.

The Power of Social Media Helps Photog Identify Tattooed Girl for Model Release

Every so often, we share a story about how powerful the Internet (and six degrees of separation) can be in reuniting owners with things they lose, whether it’s a camera that spent four years in the ocean or a roll of film lost in a blizzard.

Israel-based photographer Guy Prives experienced this amazing power of the Web firsthand recently after snapping a photograph of a mysterious tattooed girl.
