20 Historic Black and White Photos Colorized One of the greatest facets of reddit are the thriving subreddits, niche communities of people who share a passion for a specific topic. One of the Sifter’s personal favourites is r/ColorizedHistory. The major contributors are a mix of professional and amateur colorizers that bring historic photos to life through color. All of them are highly skilled digital artists that use a combination of historical reference material and a natural eye for colour.

The most stunning drone pictures of 2014 10 December 2014Last updated at 19:36 ET Earlier this year we brought you news of a new competition, backed by National Geographic, looking for the most impressive drone photography. It was arranged in conjunction with Dronestagram - a website for drone photographers to share and discuss their favourite work. Fiat Advert Master photographer and composite photographer Dave Hill shot a “moving still image” campaign for Fiat Abarth using a combination of stills from a Canon 5D mkII and Hasselblad H3D-50 and slow-motion video from Phantom Flex and Phantom Gold. If you haven’t heard of Dave Hill , he is well known for taking a dozen or more separate composites and seamlessly blending them to make a complex, yet believable image. For this commercial, Dave shot multiple composites in both video and stills of football players, the Fiat Abarth, a female model referee, and flying dirt at the wonderful Studio Orange in Los Angeles and a Miami studio. While we never got to see the pre-planning and conceptualizing of this shoot, I’m pretty sure that everything that was individually shot was planned out in advance and thoroughly thought out.
