Rest in Peace – Google Shuts Down Picasa

Google announced today that they’re ending support and development for their beloved, low profile and free editing solution, entitled Picasa. For years, Picasa was loved by amateurs for the easy to use interface with a lot of tools packed into it. While loved by many, many others are surprised that Picasa is still a thing. But does this mean that Google is getting out of the photo game? Not exactly. Google still has Google...

NSFW: Carla van de Puttelaar’s “The Rembrandt Series” is a Beautiful Homage to Dutch Old Masters

“I cherish a deep love for the Dutch Old Masters,” points out Netherlands based photographer Carla van de Puttelaar as the inspiration behind her new photography project called “The Rembrandt Series.” Featuring a visual spectacle of smart plays on lighting, shadows and masterful composition, Carla showcases the feminine body in all its natural glory.

The Five Minute Documentary That Exemplifies The Art Of Storytelling

I’m going to go out on a limb and make a bold, sweeping claim, but one I feel is rooted in reality. The new five minute long documentary “Five Stone of Lead” (recent Vimeo Staff Pick no less) from Director Jonny Madderson might just teach us more about story telling than anything else you’ll see this year. To answer how, Jonny (and DP, Eoin McLoughlin) kindly spoke to Resource to provide first hand insight into how...

If Everyone Likes You, You’re Doing it Wrong: Why Being Divisive is the Key to Building a Strong Brand

There are a few branding rules that everyone should consider while creating their brand identity, but none as difficult to execute than the principle of being divisive. Being memorable, being consistent, identifying with your market, and separating from your competition are all rules that brand developers know and strive to follow. But, being divisive, which means intentionally building in brand principles that will turn people away,...

The Sigma 20mm f/1.4 is a Stunner, Surpasses Expectations

It’s no secret I was only moderately impressed with Sigma’s 24mm f/1.4. It’s a good lens, don’t get me wrong, but it didn’t slack my jaw like previous Sigma art lenses had. The 20mm f/1.4, their latest offering, is a totally different animal: this optic is outstanding. With some seriously slick performance across the aperture range and well-controlled distortion, I’ve fallen in love with the 20mm...

Holy Crap, Adobe Just Updated Bridge

I can hardly believe my eyes, but it’s true! They made me feel like it would never happen, but the day has arrived! Adobe has finally, finally updated Bridge, the beloved program that is less than Lightroom but more than Finder. Yes folks, it’s my favorite photo browsing app, and I can’t be more excited right now. Adobe announced the update via their blog this evening and titled it aptly, “Bridge...

This Guy Swung His iPhone Around on a String to Get Incredible Video of Himself Skiing

Hot damn. Now that’s awesome. Nicolas Vuignier calls it “centriphone” and it’s one of the most unique angles of skiing I’ve ever seen. Actually, it probably is the most unique angle I’ve ever seen. Taking advantage of the iPhone’s high frame rate in HD (240 frames per second in 720p, as the GoPro 120 was apparently too slow for him), Vuignier swings the phone rapidly around his head while...
