📰 Photography New Digest 📰

  •  Can you photograph someone’s aura? Well, this interesting article seems to suggest so, discover the largely unknown world of aura photography. Kinda neat if you ask us.
  • Looking for inspiration? Check out Reuben Wu’s surreal landscape photography and his amazing use of chiaroscuro lighting approaches to landscape photography.
  • Remember the Crocodile Hunter? Well his son, Robert Irwin is developing into quite a wildlife photographer. Very cool.
  • Worth a watch is this video from Wired. We recommend the third act where they compare how a professional photographer, Chris Burkard, sees the world differently than a non-photographer with a smartphone.
  • This week’s PIXEO  blog post is about the amazing Dr. Evil style architecture in Khazakstan, find our more here.

“St Paul’s Cathedral from the top of the One New Change shopping centre. Take the lift to the six floor and walk left as you come out of the lift. A great free view and relatively untouched by tourists.”

Now that’s what we’re talking about, Awesome shot Ashley, and great description!

Darren Fast shows yet again why he is last years champion. What a cool and amazing bit of Icelandic architecture photography this is! This is a shot of two of the six hot water tanks have become the base of Perlan, shaped and named after a pearl, and it now characterizes Iceland’s capital – in the minds of citizens and travellers alike.

Here’s one of mine. Found this gem along a scenic route in St-Jean-Port-Joli, Quebec. What an amazing spot and on one hand I’m glad it was closed so it was largely on untouched. On the other hand, I could have spent a lot of money on antiques there and left a bit disappointed. What a great spot though!
