Elvismartinezsmith got the decisive moment right when he took this photo.
The red-orange hue brought about by cross processing adds character to this photograph, and the boat gives the image an element separate from the lake, but if elvismartinezsmith hadn’t pressed the shutter just as the pole was lifted, this photo wouldn’t be quite as impressive. The rower’s movement prevented the photo from being static. It lends a story, a different dimension, to the image.
The photo was taken in Agbodrafo lake in Togo using a Canon EOS Series camera loaded with Fuji Velvia 100F film. If you want to see more of elvismartinezsmith’s scenic Travel photos, check out this album.
Waiting for the perfect moment when the fog clears and the right amount of light for hours on end just for a photo may seem too much but for photographer Andy Lee, it was definitely worth it when he took infrared photos of the majestic landscapes of Iceland.
I was given a roll of LomoChrome Purple 120 by a friend who was keen for me to try it out since he didn't have a medium format camera. I really didn't expect the results I got when I took it out for a test run on a bright winter's day in London.
Some of the photos I took during my trips to Penang and Singapore may pass as street photography, but to be honest, they were more like my feeble attempts to capture 'decisive moments' that I don't usually find at home.
There is nothing than a photo shot at the perfect moment. Henri Cartier Bresson's principle on "The Decisive Moment" is a principle that we should still follow to this day. A perfectly-timed photo creates impact, whether it's one of a friend jumping into the pool or a couple emerging from the ceremony on their wedding day. For this rumble, we want to see that breathtaking moment, shot at the perfect time.
Stenoflex lets you reproduce the single steps of black and white photography, from taking photos to printing. It is a simple box pierced with a tiny pinhole to allow light to enter. Put a sheet of photosensitive paper (included) inside the darkroom and expose it to your subject.
This article is a tribute to the photojournalist Bernard Cahier, the greatest Formula 1 photographer known as the "Cartier-Bresson of Motor Racing" for his great ability in capturing the right moment.

Recently, we’ve been digging through all our LC-A 120 negatives from when we first started testing the new camera. During this search, we had our very own finding Vivian Maier moment when we unearthed a bunch of photos shot by the super-talented dopic whilst he was on vacation in Japan last year. We totally love these shots and couldn’t resist sharing them with you!
The Horizon Kompakt is a miracle in the shape of a 35mm camera. Just watching its multi-coated swing lens as it sweeps 120° degrees is a wonder to behold.

Capture picture-perfect panoramas and get prints approximately the size of two standard frames. With the Kompakt, you'll see the world from a whole new perspective.
When captured at a different angle, everyday objects can turn into picturesque works of art. Take this winning Photo of the Day by mapix as a guide and turn the simplest things into perfect photo subjects!
