National Flags Never Tasted This Good

le subliminal Where Science, Art and Photography Intersect (25 photos) Silhouette with Matches Caleb Charland demonstrates lessons in physics and mathematics with his mind-blowing photography. Inspired by children's books of science experiments, he photographs everyday objects (like matches, pens and mirrors) in ways we've never imagined, often using multiple exposures to tell the story. For example, in Fifteen Hours, the last photo in this set, Charland used 15 exposures to show how the flame of a dinner candle beautifully burns down. In still others, like in Cube with Rule and Penlight, Caleb Charland sits in pitch black darkness and, with a penlight in his hand, traces the shape of a cube along a ruler. I caught up with Charland to ask him a few questions about his work. The beauty of it all is that there's an honesty to Charland's work. “I guess you could do it in Photoshop a lot quicker and easier but I enjoy the analog process” says Charland, “there is something to working within limits.” Cube with Ruler and Penlight Arcs with Arms and Candles Three Jars

The Finger Test to Check the Doneness of Meat Print Photography Credit: Elise Bauer There are two basic methods to test for how done your meat is while you are cooking it—use a meat thermometer, or press on the meat with your fingertips. My mother has been trying to get me to test meat with my fingertips for years, and for years, being somewhat of a scaredy cat (won’t it burn my fingers?) Then my friend David showed me up. Now the point of this story is not to embarrass David (though that would be fun, if it were even possible) but to encourage you, if like me, you’ve been shying away from trying this approach. This is one of those things that gets easier with practice. MethodHide Photos Open the palm of your hand. Now gently press the tip of your pinky and your thumb together.

Built to kill - 40 breathtaking closeup photographs of animals Built to kill – 40 breathtaking closeup photographs of animals Posted by Richie on Wednesday, June 2, 2010 · 93 Comments Wildlife photography is regarded as being one of the most challenging forms of photography. It involves a thorough understanding of the behavior of animals and in addition to it, one needs to have sound technical skills, such as being able to expose in the right manner. Its all about being in the right place at the right time. Surprisingly enough, photographing some species may require stalking skills or the use of a camouflage as well. From what I’ve seen, wildlife photography is definitely one of the most dangerous forms of photography.
