Featuring a photo by Francisca Grim, we discuss how we can use the laws of physics to our advantage in creating seemingly impossible images with our photography.
Photography is ultimately about capturing and freezing moments in time. Sometimes we forget that. This week, we feature the work of Glen Grover who turns personal moments into works of beauty.
In a discussion Amanda J. Cain’s photograph, “Illusion!”, we explore what it takes to make great portraits with nothing while catching eyes through other means. Catching eyes is only the start. Fortunately, Amanda’s photo backs it up with great composition and lighting.
