Go Behind the Scenes with Lighting Master, Albert Watson, As He Photographs Preeminent Dancer Sergei Polunin

I had the good fortune to meet one of my photography idols a few years ago. Albert Watson was gracious and generous with his time and knowledge.  He is a living master who continues to inspire and push his creative vision well into his 70's.

"Behind Albert’s vision and his subtle play with light is great skill that takes his images to a higher level of art. He transforms a great image into an artistic experience." [Via Profoto]

Time Magazine's Person of the Year 2016 Issue ~ Trump

For the 2016 Person of the Year issue, TIME commissioned Nadav Kander to photograph President-elect Donald Trump—the person deemed to have most influenced the year’s news, for better or worse—for the cover of the magazine.

"It’s hard to measure the scale of his disruption. This real estate baron and casino owner turned reality-TV star and provocateur—never a day spent in public office, never a debt owed to any interest besides his own—now surveys the smoking ruin of a vast political edifice that once housed parties, pundits, donors, pollsters, all those who did not see him coming or take him seriously. Out of this reckoning, Trump is poised to preside, for better or worse." ~ Time Magazine's NANCY GIBBS

Light Painting With A Drone ~ By Landscape Photographer Reuben Wu

Reuben Wu is an artist with a profound interest in the ways that advancing technology can foster new forms of creative expression. Using a Fiilex AL250 in tandem with the 3DR Solo drone and Phase One XF 100MP ( yes a 100) camera system, Reuben has developed a method for selectively “painting” nocturnal landscapes with light via multiple exposures.  The results are otherworldly.
