Awesome double exposure series by Lisa Bamford. Her use of double exposure makes recognizable buildings and monuments much more interesting. The best part is, the shots are all done in camera.
"I enjoy taking photographs because of the enormous creative scope it provides. I am generally attracted to simplicity in either subject or composition, which is down to my background and job as a graphic designer. I see the structure of photographs in the same way as I do a layout, and I like them to be easy to read. I'm also a bit of a magpie and so take inspiration from all sorts of styles of photography, and so will shoot different subjects in different ways. I'd get bored to tears if I had to design the same thing everyday and that translates to what I point my camera at.
I generally choose my travel destinations based on places I think will be photogenic as that's what I enjoy doing most while I'm away. I find making double exposures an effective way of producing interesting images of buildings or monuments that have been endlessly photographed. It also appeals to me as the images often look quite graphic and hopefully not like the usual tourist snap."
Photographer Andrew Osokin is a specialist at capturing life's smallest treasures. Using a Nikon D80/D90 and a 60mm/90mm macro lens, he captures everything from insects to flowers and notably here, snowflakes. These photos beautifully capture the amazing shapes and formations of melting snow.
You might think long exposure photography is a relatively new phenomenon, but you would be dead wrong. Harold Edgerton began experimenting with long exposure photos as early as 1938. He developed his style using a stroboscope, better known as a strobe light. He took his photos using a strobe along with the camera's flash to capture the motions of his subjects. The results are these awesome photos!
Anuparb Papapan has a knack for capturing beautiful landscapes. I especially love the shots with the stars in the background.
Juan Todrigo Legua's sunset photos are so breathtaking, they seem almost unreal. The bright shades of orange, yellow and red, along with the beautiful reflections, really bring his photos to life. Looking at these makes me want to retire and just take photos of the sunrise/sunset.
The Neon Boneyard is where Las Vegas signs go to die. The two acre site houses over 150 signs from Las Vegas casinos and motels, some dating as far back as the 1930s. The Boneyard offers a fascinating history of Las Vegas and its fantastic typography. I kind of want to visit Las Vegas just to roam around here.
