Photo dictionary - photo/picture definition at Photo Dictionary in English Hin's Photo Corner 1X - Fine Art Photography & Prints Matt Wisniewski combines old and new in his beautiful photo collages. Some people create images to make a statement. Others, like Matt Wisniewski, do it because it looks pretty. “It’s mostly just aesthetic,” explains the 21-year-old computer science student of his spectral photo collages. “Whatever looks nice, really.” Art for art’s sake is no new conceit. The process begins with images from Tumblr and other online portfolios. For his image of a bearded man in a diaphanous red coat, Wisniewski found an overlay photo that “fit well and had a similar shape to his body.” Matt Wisniewski Untitled from "Cold Embrace," 2011 Whether he works on the face or body is also guided by aesthetic fancy. Wisniewski, who studies at New York’s Rochester Institute of Technology, prefers Photoshop to a paintbrush. That isn’t to say he hasn’t tried drawing, painting and photography. On the cusp of graduating and moving to Brooklyn, Wisniewski hopes to maintain his autotelic creed. Matt Wisniewski is a student at New York’s Rochester Institute of Technology.

Ming Thein | Photographer TwistedSifter - The Best of the visual Web, sifted, sorted and summarized Trees Cocooned in Webs After Flood Photograph courtesy Russell Watkins, U.K. Department for International Development Trees shrouded in ghostly cocoons line the edges of a submerged farm field in the Pakistani village of Sindh, where 2010's massive floods drove millions of spiders and possibly other insects into the trees to spin their webs. Beginning last July, unprecedented monsoons dropped nearly ten years' worth of rainfall on Pakistan in one week, swelling the country's rivers. "It was a very slow-motion kind of disaster," said Russell Watkins, a multimedia editor with the U.K.' According to Watkins, who photographed the trees during a trip to Pakistan last December, people in Sindh said they'd never seen this phenomenon before the flooding. (See pictures: "World's Biggest, Strongest Spider Webs Found.") As for what exactly had spun the webs, Watkins said: "There wasn't a scientific analysis of this being done. "It was largely spiders," he added. —Ker Than

The Nocturnes Night Photography Blog Design Ideas and Tech Concepts - What In The?!: INSANE Posed Ant Photography Russian photographer Andrey Pavlov takes insane macro pictures of LIVE ants by spending hours and hours playing with them and posing them to get the perfect shot. I...can't even believe half of them are real. Of course I have zero experience posing ants and have only burnt them with a magnifying glass, so maybe it's actually easier than I thought. Hit the jump for a smattering of the VERY worthwhile shots, and a link to the entire collection with a ton more.

John Paul Caponigro – Digital Photography Workshops, DVDs, eBooks March 31, 2013 | Leave a Comment | “Composer and conductor Eric Whitacre has inspired millions by bringing together “virtual choirs,” singers from many countries spliced together on video. Now, for the first time ever, he creates the experience in real time, as 32 singers from around the world Skype in to join an onstage choir (assembled from three local colleges) for an epic performance of Whitacre’s “Cloudburst,” based on a poem by Octavio Paz.” View more Eric Whitacre videos here.

Upsample If you have only one exposure, your options are limited to upsampling or using software to create more pixels. How far can you go? Stack You can increase the resolution of a file and improve the detail an image renders by making multiple exposures of the same composition and combining them into a single file. How far can you go?

Freelance Graphic Design Inspiration and Design Gallery | 15 Beautiful & Mystical Space Photos These eerie, dark, pillar-like structures - part of the Eagle Nebula - are columns of cool, interstellar hydrogen gas and dust that serve as incubators for new stars - Hubble Space Telescope 1995. On its 100,000th orbit of planet Earth, the Hubble Space Telescope peered into a small portion of the Tarantula Nebula near the star cluster NGC 2074, unveiling its stellar nursery. The region is a firestorm of raw stellar creation, triggered perhaps by a nearby supernova. 3. The massive star a Wolf-Rayet star, is the bright blue one near the center of the nebula. 4. Magnificent spiral galaxy NGC 4565 is likely similar to our own spiral galaxy, but viewed edge-on from far away. 5. This image, taken by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, is a very thin section of a supernova remnant caused by a stellar explosion that occurred more than 1,000 years ago. 6. 7. This highly oblique image of northwestern African captures the curvature of the Earth and shows its atmosphere. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15.
