Researchers Create Software for Designing Pro Drone Shots in a Virtual World

For those who wish to capture pro-quality shots without having to worry about piloting drones themselves, a group of researchers at Stanford want to help: they've create a computer tool that lets you create a shot virtually and then have a camera drone automatically turn it into real footage.

A Magnum War Photographer Turns His Camera on Basic Science

Peter van Agtmael is a New York-based conflict photographer and a member of Magnum Photos. Since 2006, he has photographed wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as the effect of the wars in the US.

Recently, Agtmael was asked to turn his lens on a different subject: science. Stanford University reached out to Van Agtmael and invited the photographer to use his skills to document basic science research happening on campus.
