Apple offers two models of the iPad Pro. On the surface (no reference to Microsoft intended) the difference appears to be primarily the size: 12.9 vs. 9.7 inches, but there’s much more to it.

These days photographers have to be somewhat conversant with the law, and most shooters who publish their work make it a point to know their obligations with regard to the rights of their models, copyright regulations and the like. But what about YOUR rights as a photographer?

We’ve shared some pretty incredible time-lapse videos, but this one shot by Joe Capra of Scientifantastic may just be the most detailed yet. In some circles Capra is know as a “time-lapse genius,” and this five-minute video gives you an idea why.

When it comes to bird photography, no species is more majestic and more sought after than the bald eagle. Its status as America’s national bird wasn’t always a sure bet (Benjamin Franklin wanted the turkey).
