Trey Ratcliff - Google+ - Why I Don't Use Watermarks I get this question a lot, and… Ken Rathke – Trey and Thomas Hawk have many things in common - each has over 300,000 followers on Google Plus. Whether their profile or views in this conversation makes them your hero or leader is 100% your call. Both Rush Limbaugh and The Jersey Shore have large audiences, and popularity is not always the only indicator. What are rather humorous are the inconsistencies between Ratcliff and Hawk that neither really seems to fully resolve. Trey has moved on to other discussions with out ever really addressing some of the obvious inconsistencies in his philosophy/copyright policy, and Hawk is now taking a poll about the use of watermarks, logos, and signatures. (For an extra laugh, keep in mind this all started with Trey’s post accompanied by his photo from Times Square – an image that is filled with trademarked logos.)

31 Awesome Examples Of Long Exposure Photography December 22, 2011 | 5 Comments » | Topics: Photography, Pics via Cretique Hot Stories From Around The Web Other Awesome Stories How to get a blurred background from your dSLR's kit lens There are plenty of good reasons to put down your smartphone or point-and-shoot and buy a digital SLR. If, for you, it was because you drooled over food photography with a shallow depth of field or portraits where the subject is in sharp focus but the background is blurred, you may have immediately been disappointed by your shots and left wondering what you were doing wrong. The fact is the lens that comes with most dSLRs, aka the kit lens, isn't really your best option for achieving a shallow depth of field. Without getting into the technical details, cameras with large sensors, such as digital SLRs, are able to create more background blur than the much smaller sensors in an average point-and-shoot. However, you'll also want to use a lens with a wide maximum aperture, something the typical kit lens just doesn't have.

It’s a good question and the answer comes from German photographer Martin Klimas. He starts by putting different colored paint on top of a speaker over some translucent material, then cranks up the volume. The vibrations of the speaker shoot the paint into the air creating beautiful patterns and sculptural forms, and Klimas snaps them with his camera while in flight. We’re used to seeing audiovisual collaborations, like those explored by Quayola and Jamie XX, but they’re usually animated using computer software, whereas this is a much more analogue affair.
