The Rescued Film Project is an amazing online gallery of images that were captured on film between the 1930's and late 1990's. The fascinating and poignant video below chronicles the discovery and restoration of 31 rolls of undeveloped film shot by an American solidier during World War II. When you see the resulting photos, prepare to be stunned.

We took the new 20.8MP Nikon D5 full frame DSLR for a spin in New York City last week, putting it to the test as we captured nude and semi-nude dancers in Times Square and other locales.

Photographers know perhaps better than anyone that it's tough to please a client, particularly if you shoot portraits for a living. Indeed, there’s no end to which a portrait photographer must go to make his or her clients looking and feeling good.

Ask any photographer to name the iconic image-makers of our time and Ansel Adams is undoubtedly near the top of their list. Ansel’s work is both aspirational and inspirational for all of us.

Canon’s newest full frame, flagship professional DSLR, the EOS-1D X Mark II, is a real speed demon. We saw just how fast it is during a hands-on demo of the new Canon rig at the WPPI show this week.

Here’s a photo shoot FAIL that pretty much seems inevitable in retrospect. In the 20-second clip, a woman on a beach in Rio de Janerio, Brazil strikes a mermaid-like pose for a photographer on some wet rocks along the ocean.

Photographer Anuar Patjane won National Geographic’s 2015 Traveler Photo Contest for this stunning, black-and-white image titled “Whale Whisperers.” But what’s it like to swim underwater alongside the ocean’s largest mammals with camera in hand?
