Today while working on a new way to show photos and locations on a map we found out that our “put on a map” feature has its six month anniversary. Well, we don’t celebrate every feature, but in those six months 211,806 photos have been geotagged and we’ve made a short (very short) animation to show how the worldmap was filled.
Thanks to you for making this possible and let’s continue filling all the missing spots throughout the world – if you’ve uploaded some photos without geotags please add them in the Lab!
Also be assured we’ve heard your feedback on the nearby functionality in Photos and Magazine that some locations and photos are missing. Well, first off: this might appear so, but on the overview map we are only showing the top 200 spots (nearby spots are combined). More would take more time to load and slow down older computers. But we were not totally happy with this either, so we are now working on that feature again (and this video is a by-product of this process). Expect something (hopefully) cool coming up soon!
Photography isn't just about the visuals, technicalities or equipment. To be a photographer, you have to capture the unseen and the abstract. And when you do, you grow one step empathetic. Here we review Lomographs that straight out speak of human emotions.

A cinematographer is the one who translates the vision of the filmmaker into reels. Technicalities and aesthetics are the responsibilities of the cinematographer, and his job is twice as rigid as a still photographer.
