Flickr rolled out a bit update today that spiffed up the overall look, expanded the file storage to 1TB and killed the $25 Pro account in favor of a $50/year fee for no ads. [click to continue…]
B&H has the Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM Pancake lens for $149 (reg. $199) now through June 29, 2013. I love this little lens and think it’s a great addition to any Canon DSLR; however, it’s particularly pleasant on APS-C cameras with its 64mm equivalent field of view. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
Photography Bay reader Mayeul Akpovi just cranked out another solid timelapse video of Paris. As you may have seen in Part I and Part II, Akpovi produces an incredible sense of motion in his timelapse work.
He uses a variety of gear to accomplish these shots:
Akpovi accomplishes those surreal camera movements not with a large dolly, jib or mechanized slider, but with a simple tripod and some camera shake reduction in post processing. You can get a glimpse of this technique in an earlier behind-the-scenes video below.
You can see more of Akpovi’s work here on his Vimeo account.
