Every time I hear about laptops targeting creatives, I get really excited. The new HP ZBook Firefly G8 seems to be targeted Macbook users pretty hard. Specifically, in their press release, they claim the weight of their 14-inch variant to be around that of a MacBook Pro 13"! That's impressive.
There's the old idea that photographers should bring their cameras everywhere with them. But of course, not every photographer does that. For the ones that do though, we wondered exactly why this happens.
If someone were constantly shooting a flash in your face, how would you react to them? Wouldn't your eyes need a break? It would get annoying and you'd probably want to commit a small act of violence against the offender.
We're not going to lie. We have been eagerly awaiting the launch of the new iPad Pro for a while now, and yesterday, Apple finally delivered. The iPad has grown from its early days of being a content consumption device and has grown into a capable content creation device.
And she was into me… I could feel it. She was laughing at all my jokes, playing with her hair, biting her lip, and making nonstop eye contact. So I said “hey, we should grab a drink later on.” And she gave me a look I’ll never forget — the look of a woman that maybe just threw up in her mouth a little.
When you first decide to become a full-time photographer, one of your biggest fears is losing job benefits. But the truth is that you don't have to.

You probably don't know it yet, but we're sure you'll find the infographic below very useful one day... or very soon. Given that a good portion of professional creatives like photographers, retouchers, videographers, and graphic designers often lead non-traditional careers, it's a valuable resource for those who are looking for various non-conventional ways to score gigs and some extra cash.
If you ask any landscape photographer who one of their favorites is, I'm positive that they'd say Ansel Adams with nary enough of them waxing on about how fantastic Varina Patel is. And for portraiture shooters? You're bound to get someone talking endlessly about Avedon and not enough about the more specialized work that Lois Greenfield does.
While there has been an increased appreciation for artful nudity in the recent years, censorship of the female form in particular remains not too far behind on various social media platforms. In response to this, Format has recently unveiled a project that explores the persisting issue through the lens of 49 photographers of different ages, locations, practice, and gender.
