This remarkable photograph shows two Julia Butterflies in Ecuador quenching their thirst by drinking tears from the eyes of two turtles. The turtles calmly allow the butterflies to get refreshment from their eyes ask they bask in the sun on a log. The phenomenon of “tear-feeding” is something known as “lachryphagy.”
The Nikon. Why do I use The Nikon? The only real answer is that if you don’t already know, I can’t explain it, you just have to do it yourself. But I’ll try.
Here’s a new comic by xkcd about the rise of compact cameras with ridiculous zooms. Titled “Superzoom,” the hidden caption reads: “*click* Let him know he’s got a stain on his shirt, though.”
Want to see how a Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer responds to a request for free images in exchange for “credit” from a major news corporation? You can, because that exchange happened a few days ago.David Carson is photojournalist with the St. Louis Post-Dispatch who won the Pulitzer Prize with his paper this year for his coverage of protests in Ferguson, Missouri. Last Friday, Carson was contacted by what appears to be a CBS account on Twitter that regularly Tweets requests for image usage.

There’s big news that’s making waves in the world of photography education: the well-known photo school Brooks Institute has announced that it will be closing, ending a 70-year run.
Fujifilm ambassador (and author of this rather controversial article) Samuel Zeller is lending a helping hand to all the Fuji users out there. In a bid to help fellow photographers get the most out of their photos, he’s giving away a whole collection of custom Lightroom presets for free!
We’ve shown you Getty’s Olympic stockpiles and Canon’s massive gear room, it’s only right you get a peek inside Nikon’s operation as well. These photos by Photo News photographer Vincent Kalut show, yet again, the amount of gear these companies have to haul to massive sporting events like this.
Some photographers find editing simply dull, but what if you could turn it into entertainment? Mike Larremore is a portrait photographer from California who broadcasts his photo-editing on Twitch’s Creative Channel with the subjects of his photos sometimes sitting in the audience.

His recent exhibition, Until the Kingdom Comes, presents exotic animals in new and unusual perspectives. The series can be seen at the prestigious Yossi Milo Gallery in New York City.
This morning we woke up to an interesting bit of data from Canon Professional Services in our inbox. A week after sharing some crazy photos of their Rio stockpile with us, Canon is sharing the top 10 pieces of gear they’re loaning out to sports photographers at the Olympics. Can you guess what they are?
Recently I got a message from a person who said that they liked my pictures, but unfortunately they don’t have a “photographic eye.” This inspired me to write the following article about basic aesthetics and their relationship to photography.
Hands up, cheeks bulging, food properly presented to the camera, if we didn’t know better we’d say this squirrel had been perfecting her photobomb skills ahead of the big moment. When Dorota and Marcin Karpowicz of BDFK Photography clicked the shutter, months of training paid off… Olympics style.
The Inuits in the region call them “American Flowers,” but in reality they’re old, rusted, leaking fuel containers; ten thousand of them scattered across the otherwise-pristine Greenland landscape on what used to be an Air Force base during World War II.
Mabuasehube in the Kalahari Desert region of Botswana, known as the place of big lions was to be the destination of our biennial “Legends” trip and my 1st real bush trip with my Fuji X-series kit.

Like many other photographers, I’m always on the lookout for gear and techniques that will stimulate my interest in photography and lead to new ways of shooting. Usually this means getting the latest camera and imaging software. But sometimes it is the opposite—going “old school” by getting an older camera and not using any software. With thoughts like these, I decided to embark on a new photography project, and travel down Memory Lane with the camera that sparked my passion for photography—a 1965 Kodak Instamatic 104.
