A Seasonal Time Lapse Of Fall Color

This is one of the greatest time-lapse videos I've ever seen. Filmmaker Jamie Scott not only made multiple exposures over the course of many minutes and hours, he returned to his Central Park locations time and time again over the course of six months, and because he set his tripod and lens and camera in the exact same way each time, his resulting time-lapse video shows the trees change colors and shed their leaves, in an instant. It's a beautiful work of art. To see more of his tremendous videos, visit his web site. He's got quite the portfolio of work, including many high-end commercials you're likely to be familiar with.

In Memoriam: Bryce Bayer

A crucial figure in the science of digital cameras died last month. Bryce Bayer invented the Bayer filter, the device that makes it possible for the monochromatic sensors in our digital cameras to render colors accurately. It's quite a legacy, for sure. If you're unfamiliar with how the Bayer filter works, take this opportunity to read about it via the Imaging Resource blog. It's a fitting tribute to the man who made the device a reality, and it will make you a more informed photographer—just like the Bayer filter makes better digital photographs. Rest in peace, Mr. Bayer.

Wired's Favorite Viral Photos Of The Year

I can't believe I almost forgot about one of my favorite things that happens this time of year. It's time for the annual flood of "best of" lists. These lists can comprise anything and everything, and you're sure to find them all over the place. But this one I'm linking to today is a good way to get started because it doesn't take itself too seriously; It's a bit of light fun. It's a collection of Wired's favorite viral photography projects of the year, of which I've seen almost all. But the little bent things... That was news to me. The year's best really are in here, from the underwater dogs to the haunted house photos. I love that last one the best, I think. And if you haven't seen it, you must.

A Glimpse At Nat Geo's Frontrunner Contest Photos

Every year, National Geographic hosts a photography contest. Well the submissions for this year's contest are now in, and while we wait for the votes to be tabulated the fine folks at National Geographic have shared a selection of their favorite entries. One of the most fun and interesting accompaniments to these tremendous photographs is the captions, unfiltered and unvarnished and provided by the photographers themselves. These amazing photographs deserve to be seen, even if they don't end up winning the contest in the end.

A Look At An Amazing Photographer

The online photographer, Michael Johnston, always has great content on his photo blog. Still, he sometimes manages to surprise me—as he just did by linking to the work of a photographer I've never heard of, but who is clearly a master of documentary photography. Gueorgui Pinkhassov is a Russian photographer and a member of Magnum—so you know he truly is a world-class photographer. His photographs have a timeless quality, much the same way as many of my favorite Magnum photographers such as Steve McCurry, Alec Soth and—dare I say it, even the man himself—Henri Cartier-Bresson.

Transferring Photos To Wood

Here's a fun project to try if you're looking for an earthy, antique-y way to display your photographs: transfer them to wood. Photographer James Brandon created this tutorial after his wife talked him into transferring a photograph with the technique, and he was blown away by the results. I'd have to agree; it's a pretty great way to create a totally unique print. After all, everybody's making nice photographs these days—but almost nobody is printing them on big hunks of trees! Make a big print on wood and you're sure to have a one-of-a-kind piece of art for your wall. Read all about it at the DPS blog, then get to work!
