Making Videos and Books From Your Photos

I shoot a lot of photos. I try to block time here and there to enjoy them because sometimes I feel I shoot more images than I can look at. After a shooting, there will be a moment, either right after or during the same week, where I will transfer the images to the computer, open Lightroom, select, remove, adjust, flag and note. Nothing special here, it's part of the whole process.

The Slideshow is a Terrible Way to Show Photos

Last week, I sat near the stage’s edge in the Paramount Theater to witness the ever-inspiring Look3 Festival in Charlottesville, VA. Hearing the presentations reminded me of the passion and conviction of the photographers who have dedicated years of their lives to specific projects.

Review: Wideshow for iOS Delivers Slideshows for the Modern Era

Forcing your family and friends to sit down and relive memories via a slideshow has been a popular option since Kodak patented the first Slide Projector in 1965. However, since the turn of the century, digital photography has taken off, and the once familiar clicking sound of carousel units are nowhere to be heard. Instead, here comes ‘Wideshow’, an iOS app designed to help you view your standard 4:3 images on the large widescreen with added benefits.

Photographers Ignite: 5-Minute Presentations in 20 Rapid-Fire Slides

An ignite is a type of event in which presenters are given 5 minutes to talk about a subject in just 20 slides. Each slide is shown for only 15 seconds before the slideshow is automatically advanced.

In 2010, photographer Kevin Kubota launched a Photographers Ignite event at WPPI, and the show has since become a staple of the expo.

Flickr’s New Photo Experience Out of Beta, No More Opting Out

Flickr's new "photo experience," which has been in beta for the past few months, is finally live for everyone to see. While this isn't the full-on redesign that we mentioned might be on the way, this update completely overhauls the photo pages in particular -- bringing speed, functionality and aesthetic improvements.

212 Instagrammers Join Forces to Create Stop-Motion Car Video

Never underestimate the power of 212 Instagrammers. Now that might seem like a strange thing to say, but vehicle manufacturer Lexus quite literally put over 200 mobile-phone-toting-picture-takers on a lot with a 1,400-foot track and let them go to town on the 2014 Lexus IS F SPORT -- a vehicle we all would probably like to see sitting outside our front doors.

Eternal Light Organizes Photos Into Crazy ‘Near-Death Experience’ Slideshows

Created by photographer Peter Basma-Lord, the Eternal Light Mac and iOS app offers users a way to play back an infinite number of photos in a slideshow format, set to music, at any speed they like. If you so chose, you could select every single photo you have hidden deep within all of your external hard drives and play them back at breakneck speed -- a sort of, near-death experience slideshow if you will.

And even though this may not seem like something one would want to do, it's actually the idea that inspired Lord to create the app in the first place.

A Closer Look at Chrysler’s “God Made a Farmer” Super Bowl Commercial

As we wrote this past Monday, Chrysler scored a major advertising win during the Super Bowl with the commercial above, titled "Farmer." It's a simple photo slideshow with Paul Harvey's "So God Made a Farmer" speech playing in the background.

Despite its simplicity, it has become one of the most talked about ads over the past week, and now new details are emerging regarding its creation.

Nokia Launches Magical Slideshow App PhotoBeamer for Lumia Phones

Earlier this year, we shared an amazing iPhone app by imaging company Scalado called PhotoBeamer. The app allows you to quickly run a slideshow of your Camera Roll photos on any device that can load the PhotoBeamer website, simply by pointing your phone at that display. One month later, Nokia acquired Scalado and began folding the small company's projects into its own software. Now, Nokia has launched a repackaged version of PhotoBeamer exclusively for its Lumia phones.

The Light Show on CN Tower is Actually a Subliminal Photo Slideshow

If you've visited the CN Tower in Toronto, Canada anytime during the past five years at night, you've likely enjoyed the dazzling light show that appears on the side of the tower. The 1,330 uber-bright LED lights (which cost a cool $2.5 million) were installed in the elevator shafts back in 2007, and are turned on from dusk every day until 2 the next morning. What you might not have known, however, is that the seemingly random colors that appear are really not so random after all: they're actually pieces of photographs!
