There are electric poles that are built on the sea at Kisarazu in Chiba Prefecture which makes for a very eccentric scenery.
In Japan, there are electric poles that are built on the sea. Where do you think they are located? Somewhere in Nankoku? Shima? Okinawa?
The one I went to is at Kisarazu in Chiba Prefecture. It took about 1 hour from Tokyo to go there via the Aqualine Express Bus and the scenery is totally fantastic!
The sea was having a high tide on the day I visited, however I got a glimpse of a bit of land out of the seawater. If time allows, you can also choose to visit the nearby places. Also, when spring tide occurs, it seems that the electric poles and land would be submerged in seawater. I definitely would like to watch a scenery like this! I will come back again for this purpose someday.
At the northern boundary of Dublin lies a mixed haven of urban life and wild hillside and scenery. The Irish town of Howth welcomes the natural forces of the open sky, land and sea; making it a perfect place for young vagabonds like travel photographer Anna Garcia.
The paintings of Rembrandt van Rijn and Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio are known for their mastery of brightness and contrast in portraiture or scenery. Their influence on the visual arts has extended even to photography. In this capsule lesson, we tackle the principle of chiaroscuro, a technique used by the Renaissance artists to master light and shadow.
By far the oddest-looking camera I own, the Electric Eye is an auto-exposure viewfinder camera made by Bell & Howell in the late 1950s. I picked one up online and ended up with another one, that came with a very cool, retro looking carrying case, from my grandfather. It took a little while to try these two out but after running some film I found that this camera is a lot of fun to shoot with.

There’s a certain quietness to Kadin Tiu's work. Her paintings and photos are never obtrusive, but there seems to be a story tucked somewhere underneath. She recently collaborated with Lomography on a series of photos using the Minitar-1 lens, which she talks about in this short interview.
What makes an engaging image? What makes a photograph seem more like a memory than just an image? How is it able to make you feel as if you were right there, in that moment, experiencing the scene first hand?

At the time of its inception, photography was considered less a fine art and more a scientific method of reproduction. But anyone who has dabbled in the craft will argue otherwise; that there consists a very specific artistry in the photographic medium. We spoke with Luxembourg-based filmmaker Catherine Dauphin about her thoughts on this wonderful art form. Join us as she answers some of our questions about film, photography, and her short film titled "The Art of Picture Taking."
It’s that time of the year when you can almost hear the holiday knocking on your door. Although, holidays are usually meant for taking a break from your 9 to 5 type of a job, there is no reason why you shouldn’t allow yourself a healthy amount of laziness and still do some fun, creative things...
Inspired by the seventies, this young artist makes it seem that such an epoch lives forever in her photographs, perfectly maintaining the spirit of the time which was characterized by a multitude of colours, contrasts and famous disco moves.
