It’s almost Super Bowl time, so we thought we’d turn to Gavin Free and Dan Gruchy (AKA the Slow Mo Guys) to see what happens when an over-inflated football explodes while being captured at hundreds of times slower than you can see with your own eyes.

Here are a dozen words or phrases that relate to photography. How many of them can you define or explain? Warning: this is not a multiple guess test, so you gotta really know your stuff to get all of them right.

Okay, so you aced the first quiz. Some of you even said it was easy. Cool! Let’s see how well you can do on the Darkroom Edition. Just like last week’s quiz, this is not a multiple guess test, so you gotta really know your stuff to get all of them right.

Before you get any crazy ideas about cracking open an expensive camera yourself, we should note that photographer Peter McKinnon says, “This was a REALLY” bad idea. After watching the video below, you’ll understand why.

We all make mistakes as photographers. But some mistakes are worse than others. Some mistakes are so bad, in fact, they turn into fails. And sometimes…they turn into EPIC PHOTOGRAPHY FAILS.

If you’ve been following the world of nature photography at all, you’re probably aware that a contestant in the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition was recently disqualified when it was discovered he used a stuffed anteater in his winning image.

I shared this on my personal Facebook page yesterday and it’s made the rounds of social media, but it’s definitely worth a watch if you haven’t seen it already. (And probably worth a re-watch even if you have seen it already.)

We occasionally turn to “The Slow Mo Guys” when we need a good laugh, and the video below sure did the trick. Gavin uses a $150,000 Phantom Flex digital camera at 1000 frames per second to capture Dan eating a cob of corn that’s slathered with ketchup and mounted on an electric drill. Sound stupid? It is.

Sometimes the best camera is the one that’s with you. Or in the case of Nick Colvin, it was his iPhone.

We’ve all seen them: people clumsily using the low-resolution camera in their Apple iPads to take photos at tourist spots. Well, one dolphin at Sea World in Orlando, Florida finally had enough.

The Raw vs. JPEG debate seems to be a neverending one. Some photographers say that shooting JPEGs simplifies their workflow and lets them spend more time behind the camera and less time behind the computer.  Raw shooters, on the other hand, insist their approach utilizes unprocessed “digital negatives” straight out of the camera—thereby giving them maximum control and uncompromising results.

It’s July 5th and a lot of folks in the U.S. are just coming back to work after celebrating Independence Day. And yes, it’s been hard to concentrate today after downing hotdogs and cold beer and watching fireworks explode over our heads the night before. So why not watch a fun photography video to lighten the back-to-work doldrums?

Like you, I’m looking for sensible indoor activities during this temporary quarantine. I’ve tried a few. Juggling was fun but there are still stains on the ceiling and glass particles in the carpet. So I told my family that instead of throwing things up in the air and dropping them I’d buy a ukulele and learn to play it. They said they’d support my musical inclinations, but of course, they’d miss having me around, too. Ultimately I turned to my very most favorite pastime. And after that short nap, I thought about photography.
