We spoke to Bill Frakes to find out how he managed to capture so beautifully and perfectly the rain soaked, muddy and sloppy-tracked 143th running of the Kentucky Derby to record the most exciting 2 minutes in sports.
According to Facebook’s VP of messaging, David Marcus, Stories have become a social media format in their own right, similar to how newsfeeds became a must-have format on social media networks.
In addition to an image sizing guide for best photo resolutions you should be uploading (we shared a dedicated infographic on that recently), this guide also contains sections for keyboard shortcuts, best times to post, tools you can look into using, new features that have been announced, tricks for writing headlines, and more.
Ludwig explains the basics of his technique. He shows how he has applied it to images from his various assignments for National Geographic magazine, including a story about nightlife in Moscow. The images are also featured in his forthcoming book called minus 2/3: The Invisible Flash.
My workflow as it is currently allows me to deliver 50-150 edited photos per day, delivered to my band and crew, in under an hour. Before anyone goes to bed I want them to have photos in their Dropbox. The more time that’s taken out of my day to deal with my workflow is less time I have to shoot, relax, or work on other things.
Today we are excited to announce an important update to Lightroom Mobile for iPhone and iPad that adds the ability to capture and edit raw photos using Adobe’s Digital Negative (DNG) file format. Having a true end-to-end raw workflow, powered by DNG and Lightroom, on your iPhone and iPad makes it possible to create absolutely stunning photos that, until a few years ago, could only have been done with a traditional camera.
Brad Smith has spent a career editing sports photography. First as a sports editor at Sports Illustrated, then a senior sports editor at The New York Times, and a return to SI as its Director of Photography. But for the next two weeks, he is editing the 2016 Rio Olympic Games photography for ABCNews.com and putting together a daily slideshow of the best images. How selective is he? An image has about a 1 in 500 chance of being selected by Smith1, which is more competitive than getting into Stanford (1 in 20), and about on par with catching a foul ball at a baseball game (1 in 563).
When a Getty images photographer shoots a picture at the Olympic Games, it’s often available to customers amazingly quickly—within a couple of minutes. But getting it there takes an enormous effort. In fact, the tech setup that makes this possible is years in the making. Here’s what goes into getting the pictures out.
Bruce Gilden: I get up early. I go to sleep early.
Using Adobe’s Camera RAW editor, I bumped the exposure up 5 stops for both files and was amazed at what both images actually looked like.

To give a bit of a disclaimer, this isn’t a step by step, and I’m not saying this is the absolute best approach. This is the setup that has been working for me, and I included links to some resources that can help you further if you want to learn more about each of the pieces that make this solution whole.
Calling on solid contacts, editing citizen-made footage in quick turnaround and hiring sharp-witted freelancers are key to delivering timely, accurate and compelling video coverage
To lose the entirety of one’s professional work is unimaginable to me.
Over the past two years, I’ve spent a ridiculous amount of time in helicopters as I put together my book LA AIRSPACE, which documents the city of Los Angeles from above. I’ve learned quite a few things in the process and wanted to share the knowledge I’ve gained of equipment and technique so that you’re prepared when the time comes for you to take to the skies with camera in hand.
In a 2012 blog post for The Dallas Morning News, photo director Chris Wilkins offers a glimpse into how the UPI 16-S worked.
Data is eating me alive. Every gadget these days can shoot photos and record video. The move to smaller but faster SSDs hasn’t helped with storage. I captured 275GB of photos and videos on my last trip. Just one trip! And I’m just a hobbyist photographer with a mere 12MP camera. If you shoot with any regularity and a 20MP+ camera you’ll easily be clocking more than a terabyte a year. Where on earth do normal people store that much data? The cloud?
