Photographer Dylan O'Donnell Captures ISS Floating by the Moon


Dylan O'Donnell is an Australian photographer who dabbles in everything from portraits to astrophotography. With careful planning and execution he was able to catch this super cool shot of the International Space Station passing by the moon. He's been waiting for a year to get his alert from the CalSky website to report a possible flyover. According to his blog the ISS only passed over the moon for .33 second.

What a great image!
Stop by Dylan's Blog and check out the rest of his great photography. Interestingly, Dylan offers most of his images totally free. Read why HERE.

Awesome Photo Straight Out of the Camera


Photographer Jason Page painstakingly planned this amazing shot for four years. It was shot in camera using film, timing a lightning storm perfectly, and the photo technique called 'painting with light'.

When it comes to photography sometimes patience really is the best virtue. I think this image proves that. He says; "I never imagined how difficult it would be, but I am happy to say that I finally created one image that I am really happy with.

This is why scooter diving is addictive


This is why scooter diving is addictive ~ you feel like you are flying, without expending hardly any energy. You can scuba further, faster and longer. We stop, park the scooters, look around and then scooter to another location. One down side is the big camera rigs introduce too much drag, so you have to use something small, like a #gopro or rx100. Without scooters, the distance you can cover is quite limited. It was great to be back in the water. Thank you to my friends Greg and Liz at Maui Scooter Divers for bringing me along. #Maui #scooterdiving

Pretty Amazing Results From Adobe's New Dehaze Tool


Photographer Bimal Ramdoyal posted these results (Reddit username: manual_maode) he got from using Adobe's new dehaze tool on a photo during a blizzard. They are pretty great to say the least. Some photographers and purists are already griping about the tool. You know, the old story about Photoshop making it easier for bad photographers/photos look good. Wherever you stand on the issue, you must admit the feature will come in handy for those photos opportunities that would have otherwise been missed.

Make sure to stop by Bimal's blog and read his whole post about it.
