Creative and tasty dishes are made every day and with food photography, we don't have to worry about ruining the ones that are too pretty to eat. But what are the limits when it comes to taking snapshots of our favorite foods? Naturally, we would think that the dishes and foods we don't like are the ones we wouldn't photograph. And then there are some that just aren't photogenic or worse, tastes bad AND looks bad. So here's a list of ten foods you don't want to photograph and certainly don't want to eat. Though if you're feeling curious enough to try them, consider this a cautionary tale.
10 Things You Might Not Want To Eat Or Photograph
1) Durian A natural give in. Not only is it the smelliest fruit in the world, but this southeast Asian produce is awfully spiky! Drab in color and casting awkward shadows, you definitely don't want this in a fruit bowl.
2) Liver Yum organs! Gristly and tough in texture, this is probably the least likely part of the animal we would want to dig into. Unless you're taking photos to appeal to the medical community, the liver is another that would be a distasteful portrait
3) Plain Oatmeal To its credit, oatmeal is a nutritious way to start the day but a dull one at most if you're eating completely plain. Not only that, the lumpy beige color of the meal is overpowering; even the brightest of cereal bowls seems dulled down. Though you could find a way to jazz up this breakfast such as with dried fruit, that's the silver lining here.
4) Turnip This root vegetable would have been better off staying in the ground. Surprisingly tough, the turnip comes in many shapes that are ultimately unflattering for photographs.
5) Anything from Arby's Arby's is the worst of all the fast food chains. Cold and plastic looking and emits and odor that even Subway would hold their breath. Besides, if you wanted to take a picture of a deli sandwich, it would be a better idea to go to a real deli in the first place!
6) Haggis More organs! And a classic Scottish dish too. It is essentially a sheep's stomach stuffed with a meat pudding mixture of the animal's heart, lungs and liver seasoned with onions, salt and other spices. If that didn't have your skin crawling, maybe the next entry will.
An Icelandic dish of shark or sleeper shark that has been cured in a unique fermentation process which is then hung to dry for about five months. Consumers have said that the meat gives off a strong Ammonia smell and a very fishy taste. While a sight to behold, it would be a putrid portrait
8) Fruit Cake The cake that everyone loves to hate. It definitely isn't the prettiest cake in the bakery either. It's chewy and dark brown and has too many negative connotations that are so firmly rooted in the baked good. There's no bouncing back from all of that bad publicity.
9) Sauerkraut The word translates from German to "sour cabbage." Swimming in lactic acid bacteria, it is only meant to be paired with meat; there are so few things that you can actually do with sauerkraut. Also, the light coloring of regular sauerkraut makes the dish look too uniform through a lens.
10) Low Calorie Bread This is the stuff your mother was talking about when she said that the box would be healthier than the cereal you had for breakfast. Drier than a rice cake, low calorie bread is a dietary item that shouldn't be allowed for consumption. It is also uninteresting in shape and some brands break like Styrofoam; little crumbs everywhere.Want to see some more appetizing food photography?

Summer's here and the kids are home and you're looking for some things to do. Parents have a great opportunity to make some fun memories with the whole family. Having your kids look back fondly on this time in their lives is important, so give them the best things to remember and the best ways to preserve those memories. Here are some ideas that will help you and your kids keep memories alive. They're fun, unique and you can customize them any way you'd like.
12 Fun Ways to Help Your Kid Hang Onto Memories
1) Make a Time Capsule
Collect a handful of things from your kids' lives and put it in a time capsule. All types of receptacles could work. And you can put anything in the capsule: ranging from everyday items, like a small toy or a label of their favorite cereal, to vacation memorabilia, like ticket stubs or sand from a far away beach.
2) Take Pictures of Things You're Getting Rid of
This might sound a little strange, but think of it this way. Everyone wants to get rid of clutter, but perhaps some of the items have nostalgic value for you or your children. While still being selective, take pictures of the things you are getting rid of, so you have a manageable digital copy of what you're tossing. You can even group common items together to photograph: like old baseball gear or worn ballet shoes. In the end, you'll have a sweet album to look back on and show when the kids get older
3) Start a "Trip Fill-in-the-Blank" card
Ever come back from vacation and have pictures and other items that you don't remember taking? An idea to keep all the memories fresh is to try a "fill in the blank" card. Essentially it is a fun, quirky short-hand list that notes every detail of your trip. Attach a picture, say where you took it, where did you stay, what was that funny line Dad told the waitress that one time: the memories are endless. This is a chance for your kids to get crafty too; you can have them make the card and write out what they remember and so on.
4) Save your Travel
Vacation photos are nice, but what about the journey there? All those car songs, games, snacks and stir crazy moments driving or waiting in terminals can get lost in the mix of your vacation. So capture those moments by saving travel tickets, photographing the kids sleeping in the back, filming one of your family games on the road: basically, anything that's unique to you and your family.
5) Photo Memory Game
Make a game out of your collected photos. Take some of your favorites and make a matching game. Your kids can even help out by choosing their favorite photos and participating in the game. See how well they know who's who.
6) Photo Scavenger Hunt
This can be a year round thing: but if you want to do this just for the summer, you'll have to keep the list shorter. Have a list of things you want to photograph your kids doing. Some past examples include your kid holding his or her favorite toy, wearing their favorite outfit, your kid inside their childhood bedroom or their first classroom and more. It all depends on what you and your kids want to remember. The kids can participate too if they want; they can photograph their favorite things without adult assistance. This will give those photos a genuine childish feel to them that will make you smile.
7) Interview your Kid
This is more of a video project. Ask your child questions about what they like or dislike or what they're thinking. Doing this on their birthday would be perfect, but even on days such as the last day of school or the last day of summer can work as well. You can even have more fun with this project by having your child act as their favorite person or celebrity: see how much their taste changes from year to year.
8) Hand-print Poster
Put a spin on the typical paint hand-print poster or tapestry. This is a messy project, so why not pair it up with fun pictures of your kids being messy! Have your child's hand-print and have a small collage of your kid at his or her silliest, messiest or anything that will get a lot of laughs.
9) Get Creative with your Display
Having some company over for a midsummer barbecue? Have some fun showing off your family photos with unique frames and displays. A neat craft is to put one of your photos in a glass mason jar accompanied with small collectibles—that will be sure to get some nice compliments. And your kid can help out by choosing what collectibles go with each photo.
10) Polaroid Wall
First you have to find a blank wall that you'd be willing to fill up with Polaroid pictures. Then you would have to acquire a Polaroid camera, which is difficult but not impossible (and if you really can't find any, then printed digital photos will work just as well). After, spend time finding the right moments to capture on Polaroid and post them on your blank wall. You'll have a unique mural to show off.
11) Indoor Camping Adventure
Is nature not really your thing? Or are you too far away from it to begin with? Bring the fun of camping inside your home! Collaborate with the entire family to create the ultimate fantasy campsite right in your living room: with all the necessities, including cool pajamas and fireside treats. Simply attempt to capture the essence of the great outdoors.
12) Be Natural
Sometimes you don't even need a prompted idea or activity to make memories. Every day is your chance to make memories. Keep your life exciting: always have something ready to capture the moment and enjoy your time with your family.

Georgia resident, Dina Lettre
, is a mother of two boys, 10 year old Sam and 6 year old Luke, and has been photographing her children since 2007; originally as a platform for her in-laws to see their grandkids. She became more involved in the mom blogging community after her second son was born and her blog has only gotten more attention and praise.
Let's face it, photographing kids can be difficult...especially when the camera comes out. They typically run right to it, or run as fast as possible in the opposite direction. Both are challenges, and ideally, you want them to just ignore the camera altogether. Here are some tips that usually help:
Tips And Tricks For Photographing Kids
1. Bring your camera to them
Kids are always more comfortable in their own territory. Whether it be the backyard, a pool or a bedroom, you'll find that's it's much easier to get genuine images of kids where they feel comfortable. Don't be afraid to get down on their level. Sometimes this means you might get dirty or wet!
2. Keep them busy
Allowing the kids to continue playing (or any other distraction) will keep the focus off of you and your camera. And children that are enjoying something often elicit the sweetest facial expressions...best of all, you'll avoid the dreaded "fake smile". If the kids aren't busy, giving them something new to learn, like a craft or recipe, can make for great photos.
3. Make them laugh
Another way to avoid the fake smile is to encourage laughing. Some kids, especially younger ones, tend to over-think "Smile!" during a session. Sometimes the situation might prove to be funny. If not, I will ask them to help me sing a silly song or take turns telling jokes. As soon as they stop thinking about smiling, their smile is instantly natural. This is especially helpful when you need a more posed shot, say on vacation or at school.
4. Get them moving
Playing sports, riding bikes or running in the grass...it should all be preserved in photos. (Using a tracking focus or sports mode on your camera will make the photos crisper.) And, you'll have the added benefit of natural light.
5. Don't focus on the face
Some of my favorite photos don't even show a face. So much emotion can still be shared, and you won't have to worry about the fake smile, the angry pout or even the tears. This works great with kids that really don't want to be in a photo.
6. Get in their face
This works best with cooperative kids, but nothing's better than a photo that's up close and personal! It often allows for better focus, as well.
7. Snap, snap and snap some more
Be prepared to take a lot of photos. I'm always amazed at how many shots I have from just one outing, but usually there are only a handful that I really love so I'm happy that I didn't hold back. And, many times the photos that didn't make a big impact at the time, turn out to be favorites as I edit.

Now that the school year is over, every child and parent is looking forward to seeing their yearbook. But have you ever thought about participating in or creating a yearbook for your child? For parents, it can be a great project to work on as it further develops creativity skills. However, there are a few things to keep in mind before diving right into formatting the yearbook. With these key points, you'll have the tools to make a beautiful yearbook for your child and the rest of their class.[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="640"] Photo © Laura Gilchrist via Flickr Commons[/caption]1. Supplies
It sounds obvious that you would need paper, pictures and other art products, but not just anything will do for this. Think of it as a scrapbook project. For starters, you will need to find heavy duty paper to work with colorful or patterned paper to accent pictures and words. Invest in fine art supplies if you plan on crafting your yearbook by hand. Using graphic designing skills will also help when creating a refined and polished look for older kids.[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="640"] Photo © Judy Baxter via Flickr Commons[/caption]2. Content
Since there are many things that happen within a year, you may need to cover every month, every milestone, and every special event that happens during the school year. You and your child will be very active in the school for the entire year. You need material! Take as many pictures as possible and offer the students different yearbook activities. The information is endless. Make sure, however, to not go overboard. All the material collected will not make it to the yearbook due to limited space.[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="640"] Photo © Simon Garcia via Flickr Commons[/caption]3. Students and Teachers
Have the students get involved. It's their yearbook after all. Allow them to fill out a special profile page asking them about their favorite subject, favorite occupation for when they grow up, and other simple "favorite" questions. You can even have them take their own pictures so that you would have a more intimate and genuine shot of each student. Don't forget about the teachers, too. An idea for them is to have them list their favorite student quotes, best assignments, or any momentous thing that happened in their classroom. Be specific and be fun.[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="561"] Photo © Carlamatic via Flickr Commons[/caption]4. Presentation
While it is a good thing for the students to have different visions and styles, you may want to find a coherent and neat approach to the final product. Though that isn't to say completely disregard the students' handwritten work for a polished Helvetica font. Have their words and writing somewhere in the book, but have some information neatly formatted like introductions and names. Also, make sure you leave room in the book for students to get signatures and personal messages from their peers and teachers.That's what they'll be looking forward to. Don't forget to laminate the pages or have some kind of preservation finish on the pages (except for the autograph section) so the book would last.[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="480"] Photo © Too Many Jennifers via Flickr Commons[/caption]5. Obstacles
There are some things you will want to avoid when putting together a children's yearbook. First, make sure to keep all biases out of the yearbook. As much as you love taking pictures of your child, do not make them the sole star of the yearbook. There are so many other kids you have to document and it would be unfair to them or the parents if they are not featured in it. You might also face the issue of pushy parents. They would want their child to be featured more in the yearbook than others. Kindly remind them that there are other kids that need recognition and you will feature every one of them. Another problem you might run into is too much material. While it is a good thing to have more as opposed to less when it's close to the deadline, you will want to be careful about what you choose to cut. If you find that there are duplicates throughout the yearbook, replace the repeats with some of the extra material that didn't make the cut. Lastly, there may be lack of participation from the students or sometimes the kids do not seem all that cooperative. Offer up fun in-class projects to keep them focused and driven.
With all this in mind, you will have the foundation for creating your child's yearbook. But do not hinder your creativity and own personal ideas for the project. Use them to your advantage and make it the best yearbook that the school has ever seen. Happy crafting!

The equipment can be used straight out of the box, while it's convenient to transport and can be quickly setup. The standard features of the modular plug-and-fly aerial solution includes a wireless video and built-in camera gimbal control that simply enables the videographer to get the best shots from high up in the sky.Although drones have recently been a target of the mainstream media, the common aspect between them and the Easy Drone that they look alike, however, most of them are rigid, modular and difficult to transport. In fact, for the existing done equipment, advanced features such as the video stream and gimbal options are far from viable, while there are a number of wires you must deal with every time you deploy.The Easy Drone is lightweight in structure and has a self-supporting proprietary design that—for the most part— have never been seen in quad-copters. It also provides incredible strength, while the compact plug-and-fly solution of the command unit contains an array of built-in features with absolutely no wires. So, the user can wirelessly load new settings, making it a highly optimized tool kit for your aerial videography needs.With just a flip of a switch you can auto tune for any configuration. No manual tuning is required and the Easy drone can even determine its own settings. There are six flying modes which easily enable the device to fly, just connect the device to your computer or tablet and set path points that can also be changed wirelessly. Not to mention, you can easily plug in any camera feed and view the live stream from the ground.The device uses a battery to power the camera while transmitting video. In fact, you can also view important flight data on the video screen such as speed, altitude, battery status, among others. While the Easy Drone is standard equipment designed for photographers and videographers who like to shoot aerial videos, each ready-to-fly package comes with a custom programmed Turnigy 9X radio with pre-loaded functions, one LiPo battery for drone, along with one LiFe battery for a remote that extends its use time.Contribute to the Easy Drone Kickstarter campaign and help bring this new invention to life!

Then it is time for you to shape up and suit up because you need a successful portfolio. It's more than just slapping photos on black pages; a successful portfolio is just as artistic as your photos. So take some care and read these tips that will help you get the most out of your work.
20 Tips For Putting Together A Successful Portfolio
1) It's All About You It sounds self explanatory, but you must not forget that this portfolio is representing you as well as selling you. When a portfolio is used more as a marketing tool, the focus turns to the technical side of your work like your cameras or your editing software. It becomes more of the "how" rather than the "who" or the "why." Keep it professional, but don't forget to be personable.[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="503"] Photo © Scott Kellum via Flickr Commons[/caption]
2) Introduce Yourself An introduction is a framing device for your portfolio. It is your chance to greet your agent or whomever you are giving your pictures to and give them a taste of what you're all about. This summary will guide them through your work and let them know what to expect.
3) Presentation Matters While you hope the agents will look at your pictures, they're going to look at the portfolio cover first. It's best to have a portfolio cover be a simple, one color board, nothing too frilly or fancy that could distract or leave a bad taste.[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="640"] Photo © Bob AuBuchon via Flickr Commons[/caption]
4) Know Your Audience Always keep in mind exactly who is receiving your portfolio. How do you want them to react? What do you want to say with your photos? What are they looking for? Choose wisely before submitting your pictures, you don't want to offend or confuse the agency. Another thing to keep in mind is whether or not you want a print or digital portfolio. It would seem the easiest to convert everything into a JPEG file and send it off, but sometimes the print portfolio leaves a bigger impression. It really depends on how you want to be perceived and it's up to you to decide what will make you stand out.
5) Keep it Short and Sweet You may have a lot under your belt, but sending everything you have is overwhelming. For a photo portfolio, the minimum amount you should have is eight photos and the maximum should be twenty. That will be just enough for the agency to get an idea of your work.
6) Less is More If your pages are too busy or filled with information, your picture is going to be lost. Worst case scenario is if the agent doesn't want to continue looking through because there's so much in it. So just have your photo, a brief description and that's it! They don't want to read a novel or look at a life's collection.
7) Put Your Best Foot Forward Find your best work and put that at the very beginning. Of course, your portfolio shouldn't have anything BUT your best work, but if you have a favorite feel free to but that at the top of your collection. Every image counts, so show your strongest skills wherever you can.[caption id="attachment_40344" align="alignnone" width="640"] Photo via Colourbox[/caption]
8) The Middle Ground All the work that you consider good but not great should fill the middle of your portfolio. This is where you can show some moderation after an intense opening section. Since you have the agent's attention, you can take it easy until they get to the very end of your portfolio. You can even show a little weakness if you choose; show them where you are improving or where they can help you.
9) Nail the Ending Have your final image reinforce everything that you have shown before. If your opening photo was one of your best and your favorite, then your ending should be your most impressive stand out image. Make it something that they will remember, even if they aren't trying. Make them want more after seeing your final image.
10) Have a Wide Range Versatility is always good to show. Avoid multiple photos that show or tell the same thing about your skills as a photographer. A way to stay organized and focus is to pair matching photos (matching themes, content, etc). Remember, range doesn't mean random. Always stay relevant to what you are trying to relay through your portfolio.[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="640"] Photo © Cless via Flickr Commons[/caption]
11) Flawless Flow This goes along with the "range not random" idea from the last tip. When your pictures have a nice transition flow, the agents will respond well. Your pictures tell a story about what you have done and what you are capable of, don't let that get mixed up in the pages. It will show how connected you are to your work and how you utilize the medium of photography to your advantage. And in turn, they will see how you can work to their advantage.
12) Not a Community Craft Your portfolio should not be up for community votes, meaning your friends and your family shouldn't decide what you should put in or keep out. You are representing yourself, and having others make the decisions will not help you sell yourself. This is a time to exert your confidence and independence as you alone are responsible for the photos in that portfolio. Own it, embody it and feel free to show it off to your loved ones after the professionals have seen it.
13) No Old Work Every picture you are showing must be current, or at least within the past three years. Anything longer than that, and it's no good. It helps your decision making process when you put everything together. You should also consider what kind of work you should include. Commercial work is always a plus, whereas concept ideas and school projects are best kept out.[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="640"] Photo © Kendra Sundvall via Flickr Commons[/caption]
14) Give your Photos a Reason for Being There When selecting photos, give each one a reason why you are including them; why are you choosing these photos to represent you? If you can articulate that, it will highlight your strengths and values as a photographer. It can show what you specialize, what you are passionate about, what you like doing, what you dislike doing and so on. Your portfolio will feel more personal this way.
15) Don't Be Tempted Once you've finished your portfolio, you might feel tempted to put more in or feel like there isn't enough. Believe me, there's enough if you really took your time. This temptation will only hurt you as you could potentially go overboard and put too much in. There is a fine line between done and bloated, and you'll be on that line until you are ready to hand it in.
16) It Lives! As you continue taking photos, your portfolio continues to evolve. It is an inanimate but living thing. Update it at least twice a year if you are actively shooting at different events and places. Keep up with yourself, the last thing you want is misplacing an important photo you want to put in.
17) Be Considerate If you want to include collaborative projects, feel free. But be sure to mention that you were working with someone else. Taking credit is one thing, but the agent might be impressed by a photo skill that your partner had rather than your skills.[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="640"] Photo © Scott Kellum via Flickr Commons[/caption]
18) Flexibility Not every agency will want to see the same photos or look for the same skill sets. It's important that your portfolio is flexible and can be interchangeable depending on where it is being sent. Make sure you have some back up photos to switch out so you are always staying fresh.
19) Have Personal Goals You are human, not a photo slave. Stick with your own morals and goals and follow through with them when you apply for gigs. Staying true to yourself will help you excel at whatever you pursue, which will make you all the more valuable and experienced.
20) Confidence is Key This will probably be the cheesiest tip of all, but it's true. Believe in yourself and believe in the hard work that you have put into your photos and photo portfolio. If you don't like it, how is an agency going to like it? Keep your head up and your back straight and show them what you've got!

And so are fresh and exciting photo exhibits opening across the nation. We've put together a list of 30 Must-See Photo exhibits to help you indulge in your artistic side, or just escape the Summer sun and the heat by checking some of these museums and galleries.
30 Must-See Photo Exhibits 1. "Now You See It, Photography and Concealment" The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, NYThis exhibit plays with the binary between concealment and revelation. Photos range from portraits to places and give the viewer an interesting take on a person's privacy in a public setting. The exhibit is open till Sept. 1st, 2014.2. Bettina Hubby's Breast Cancer Recovery, Venue TBD, Culver City, CAWhen artist Bettina Hubby was diagnosed with breast cancer, she had a double mastectomy. The usually grim and dark disease gave Hubby the opportunity to document her process and create a photo collection of her recovery. She has an unusually humorous response to the whole thing and it shows through her images. While some might be shocked to see a woman with such a glib yet positive attitude, others can appreciate Hubby's approach to make something out of this disease. The venue is still to be decided upon.3. "Hippie Chic," Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, MAIt's all of the '60s in one exhibit. Fashion, photos, ethnographic art and objects from the era are featured here. Modern models bear the '60s fashions and visitors are treated to everything the time had to offer, whether it be with popular culture or the politics of the time. The show opens on July 16th.4. "Migrating Identities," Downstairs Galleries, SF, CAEight artists join force to put together a collection representing their unique heritage. They each come from different parts of the world, such as Bangladesh, Iran and Kenya. Centering around historical events, this exhibit showcases how each of the artist's cultures were affected--it is a culturally enriching and educating experience.5. "AIDS in New York: The First Five Years," New York Historical Society Museum, New York, NY This photograph collection covers the early years of AIDS activism, showing protest marches, signs and of course, the faces of all those individuals, families and friends who have been affected by the disease. Borrowing archived material from the New York Public Library and National Archive of LGBT History, this stands as another historical exhibit.6. "For Whom it Stands," Reginald F. Lewis Museum, Baltimore, MDThe crowing jewel of this exhibit is a piece of the original Star-Spangled Banner. The show centers around the theme of flags and the people who live under them. Although people are of different cultures and racial groups, the exhibit aims to show the unity between them and the patriotism they all feel. Flags are good symbols to show that patriotic power--you can see how people embody that power.Also at this museum: 7. Lydia Douglas: Cultural Reflections of the African Diaspora8. "The Muse," Fort Pulaski, Savannah, GAPhotographer Shannon Christopher releases her collection of pictures (taken solely with an iPhone) of Fort Pulaski and Cockspur Island. the images were featured during National Park Week in Fort Pulaski and were meant to show all the significant points of this area of Georgia. The exhibit ends July 27th.9. "The Process and the Page," Doris and John Norton Gallery for the Center for Creative Photography, Phoenix, AZA little different from the usual photography exhibit, this show centers around an early 20th century book written by Ansel Adams. In his time, he had an heavy interest in preserving photographs, having them last as long as they could--all of his information about that process was put into this book. Proof once again that Adams played an important role in photography.10. "On Vacation with Winslow Homer," Morris Museum, Morristown, NJWinslow Homer was one of the most respected American artists of his time. The Morris Museum showcases a handful of his wood engravings. They are snapshots of children and adults playing and being merry along the sea shore. Articles and other bits of information are paired up alongside Homer's work to give more depth to the exhibit.Also at this museum:11. Faces of Breast Cancer: Photos by Pete Byron12. “The Great Picture” The Smithsonian; Air and Space Museum Udvar-Hazy Center, Chantilly, VAThis is a monster of an exhibit! The 3,375 square foot photo of an abandoned Marine Corps air station is a radical and unique project put together by a group of six ambitious photographers. The camera obscura they used for this project might have been the biggest ever created: they transformed a fighter jet hanger into an enormous pinhole camera to get the effect they wanted. It is one photo you really have to see to believe!13. "The Bruce High Quality Foundation: Ode to Joy, 2001-2013," Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn, NYHere is a unique, almost comical exhibit right here in Resource's home borough. The Bruce High Quality Foundation aims to utilize public space in any way they can and these various photos, sculptures and videos show how they approached various locations over the years. The people in the photos are often times in funny or wondrous poses and give the collection a light-hearted feel.14. "It Was Forty Years Ago Today," Monroe Gallery of Photography, Santa Fe, NMWatch out, this is a one-day only exhibit! On July 5th, the Monroe Gallery of Photography will release photos of important historic moments that happened 40 years ago on that very day. Events and people featured will include Martin Luther King Jr, Bobby Kennedy, Mark Rudd and the student takeover of Columbia University, the Tet Offense and more. It will be a surreal exhibit to think that everything that you will see happened only 40 years ago.15. "Urbes Mutantes: Latin American Photography" International Center of Photography, New York, NYSomewhat self-explanatory. Photographers in Latin American cities find and capture calmness and beauty amidst the chaotic streets and neighborhoods they live in, showing the political and social situations of these countries.16. "This Light of Ours" Mississippi Museum of Art, Jackson, MSA collection that took four years to gather and complete, "The Light of Ours" gives an intimate look inside the Civil Rights Movement. Photos came from activists and protesters who took them during the events. The show features important people who stood up and fought during this time; it honors their hard work and sacrifices.17. "Josef Koudelk: Nationally Doubtful" The Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago, ILCzech-born French artist Josef Koudelk presents his retrospective look on America. Here, Koudelk's photos, journals and other material will be on display. His collection spans all the way back to 1988 and stands as a great P.O.V. exhibit for the summer.18. "Awkward Family Photos" California Heritage Museum, Santa Monica, CAThis popular and hilarious genre of photos (and the subsequent blog that was created to honor it) is getting its own exhibit. Going on until July 27th, you'll get to see your favorite awkward family photos in one place. The show will surely get a good laugh out of any visitor.19. "Minor White: Manifestations of the Spirit" The Getty, Los Angeles, CAMinor White, an oftentimes misunderstood 20th century photographer, will be honored with a show at the Getty Center starting on July 8th. His work highlights both the technical aspect of photography and its spiritual and revelatory side. The collection is a retrospective on his journey as a photographer and will include his eleven print sequence, Sound of One Hand.20. "Colorado Nature" Steamboat Art Museum, Steamboat Springs, COA fairly simple but awe-inspiring collection of the natural Colorado landscape. The exhibit is an opportunity for Colorado's greatest nature photographers to showcase their work and highlight their favorite natural areas of the state.21. "2nd Summer Photography Exhibition" Rockport Art Association, Rockport, MAHosted in the Martha Moore room of the museum, this is the second summer photo exhibit that includes a variety of pictures and photographers. You can even vote on your favorite and see if it wins best photo of the summer.22. "David Hartt: Stray Light" Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh, PACanadian born photographer, David Hartt, takes a personal and intimate look at the headquarters of the Johnson Publishing Company in downtown Chicago. The place is an important landmark as it is one of the first African-American owned companies. Hartt takes extra care to photograph every part of the building's infrastructure and the details that were unique to the company itself. His project was even more poignant when he discovered that the building was sold in 2010 and the company had since moved locations. Hartt's collection is not only art, but preservation.23. "A Life in Photography: A Retrospective" Los Angeles Center of Photography, Los Angeles, CAPhotographer Julia Dean takes a retrospective look on life throughout multiple decades. The collection shows audience a wide range of daily lives and how people interact with each other. Some prints are even available for sale.24. "American Cool" National Portrait Gallery, Washington D.C.
Frank Sinatra in 1956. (Herman Leonard, Institute of Jazz Studies, Rutgers University) "Cool" is definitely the right adjective for this summer exhibit as it takes an interesting look at the people and things that were/are "cool." Some are jazz icons like Miles Davis, others are actors like Johnny Depp and there are modern musicians like Jay-Z. The exhibit covers decades of cool people and what they brought to their respected fields and features the work of photographers like; Annie Leibovitz, Richard Avedon and Diane Arbus. It'll be just what you need on a hot day in July.25. "Blake Little-Photographs from the Gay Rodeo" White River State Park, Indianapolis, INPhotographer, Blake Little, has photographed the gay rodeo circuit, a part of American western culture that not many people know about. Little started off as an observer, but soon became a participant around 1990, even winning Bull Riding Champion of the Year in the gay rodeo community. The exhibit shows his experience with the sport and the culture behind it and certainly gives audiences one of the most unique and niche photo topics of the summer.26. "The Monuments Men" National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C.The real story of the Monuments Men and their endeavors to rescue valuable art pieces from Nazi Germany. This exhibit documents their journey and the results of their rescue, along with other forms of documentation and artifacts from the time.27. "In a World of Their Own: Coney Island Photographs by Aaron Rose" Museum of the City of New York, New York, NYA collection of photos taken from the beach of Coney Island. Photographer Aaron Rose started taking pictures of the area in 1961 and aimed to show more than the typical theme parks and sideshow wonders that is associated with the Coney Island name. Rose shows the close and intimate relationship beachgoers have, whether they are cramped tightly together on the shore or relaxing under an umbrella.28. "2014 Statewide Photography Competition/Exhibit" Triton Museum of Art, Santa Clara, CAThis one is a different summer exhibit as it is also a competition for professional photographers. Over 700 photos were submitted and form now a spectacularly big museum exhibit. The winner of this competition will receive a solo show at the Triton Museum in the winter of 2016. It would be a treat to see said winner before that, as well as the other valiant photographers' work.29. "William Odiorne's Paris: Vintage Photographs from the 1920s" Robert Tat Gallery, San Francisco, CAWorking in a traditional style, William Odiorne captured aspects of 1920s Paris during the rise of photography. Most of his pictures are romantic and in soft focus, creating a nostalgic ambiance. Odiorne managed to observe an entire era and document it, giving us today an opportunity to travel in time.30. "Transportraits" Newspace Center for Photography, Portland, ORA portrait collection that shows different forms of masculinity. All the models featured are transgendered men placed in front of a hand-painted natural scene. Photographer Lorenzo Triburgo aimed to show the binary between gender and photo representation and took it upon himself to bring the issue to light. The portraits he came up with are an interesting look into the subject and the transgender community.

Events, like the ones sponsored by Red Bull, are the perfect platform for these talented togs to capture the high flying sport. Those who specialize in photographing this extreme sport have their own perspectives and insight, and of course, they all have unique stories to tell about their experiences.Graeme Murray and Rutger Pauw are two of the top names in BMX photography and have extensive experience in the "trenches." Resource reached out to them to find out a little more about what they do, how they do it and how shooting extreme sports has made them into the photographers they are today.[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="621"] © Graeme Murray[/caption]Describe the environment that you work in when you are on a BMX shoot. What is it like? Are there other photographers and, if so, does it become a competition?Graeme Murray: If a BMX shoot is just with one or two riders, it's a great relaxed time. I also look for the optimum moment and the best style. I talk with the riders about how they want to be shown in a photo. The riders know the sport better than photographers--they know the feeling of doing the tricks and jumps so I want to hear about that to put it into the images. If I have to shoot when other photographers are around, I just do my own thing. If you worry about what other people are doing, it means you are not putting all your thought and energy it to your own imagery. Rutger Pauw: There are roughly two kinds of BMX photography: first there is contest photography where the venue is set, and then there are individual shoots. These often take place in the streets, and as time went by and the level of riding went up, so did the photography. We are now in search of never-before-seen locations that might be suitable for bike riding, and it makes photographers venture all over the Earth. Sometimes the shooting conditions can be harsh, like on a trip to Argentina where the air was so thin because of the altitude, which made it hard to breathe and the sun almost blinding to the eyes. However, places like that make for great images.
BMX is not that big a sport, so usually I’ll know the other photographers if I’m at a contest, and the atmosphere couldn't really be any better. We share knowledge about photography among each other and help out where needed. Most trips that are to specific destinations will only have one photographer, because of the exclusive element. Finding a location and keeping it a secret until a magazine goes to print are all part of it.
Is there a specific style of BMX riding that you tend to gravitate toward or specialize in (i.e. Downhill, Freeride, Urban etc)?
GM: To be honest I like shooting all types of sports. I like see the dynamics in sport, the lifestyles... It's fascinating.
RP: I have to say I like to take photos of all disciplines, but with my background in BMX street I’d say that sport will always be fun. It also allows for creative photography, as I can alter background more easily than with other disciplines.What kind of equipment do you use for BMX shoots?GM: I mainly use a DSLR camera, and if I am using lighting I use Elinchrom flash lighting gear. I trigger the flashes with Pocket wizards. I still have my Hasselblad Medium Format film gear that I like to use every now and then. You could make a cool shot with an iPhone if you really wanted to. RP: I use the Leica S-System with central shutter lenses. They synchronize with flash up to a 1000th of a second, so that helps me freez the action during the day. I use a Broncolor Move to light everything. It accepts all the light-shaping tools you’d use in the studio, but it’s still very portable. I don’t work with assistants, so I like things to be somewhat light.[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="615"] © Graeme Murray[/caption]When did you decide to pursue this type of photography? How has it shaped your craft?GM: I shoot all sorts or sport and do commercial work also not just BMX. I love shooting sports with wheels a lot as I have always been on a bike myself, having raced mountain bikes for a long time--I still spend many hours riding on the trails in my hometown.RP: Basically it chose me. I’ve been riding BMX for fifteen years, so it came naturally. Though I love doing the occasional BMX shoot, most of my shoots are with other sports, and I’m happy about that, as I enjoy that variety--it pushes me out of my comfort zone. After art school I assisted a good photographer for a few years and then decided to just go for it. That’s seven years ago now. It’s been a fun ride so far. What is your favorite part about BMX photography? And your least favorite?GM: Seeing amazing things happen on a bike is very cool, like new tricks. I like seeing people do rad things. Sometimes cool moments happen that you would have never even planned on. Least favorite? Shooting someone who gives up quickly but still wants to get cool imagery is tough. You spend money going to try get cool shots and come away with not much. I suppose that's all part of it though with sport: sometimes its does not always go as planned. RP: My favorite part is the travelling, the friends, the laughs, the fear of a crash and the creativity. Pretty much everything about it. Because I don’t get to shoot BMX all that often, there is no boredom with it, which is the only possible negative I can think of. Luckily I’m avoiding that; it’s a party every time I get to go out with some talented people.Is there any kind of relationship between photographer and rider? If so, describe what it is like.GM: You need to get on with the rider. They need to trust you. They want to see that you are getting amazing pics. It takes a lot of effort from them to do what they do. They want to see results from you too. Once you have their trust, the athletes will push themselves so you can get cool pics. RP: In freestyle sports we work pretty close with the athletes. Style (or body position) is an important aspect of the photo; sometimes a shot will be perfectly timed, but the athlete has an awkward body position. I always look at the photo together with the athlete and we’ll keep shooting until they are happy with the result. So aesthetics matter a great deal. Often athletes prefer to work with photographers they feel comfortable with, especially if it’s for projects that have a high risk of injury--in that case they don’t want a photographer who’ll ask for “one more time please.”[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="612"] © Rutger Pauw[/caption]Do you have any anecdotes from past photo shoots?GM: The biggest phrase photographers tend to say is "Just one more." You tell yourself not to say it, because sometimes when you do something bad happens to the rider attempting the trick, like a crash. I had that happen a few months ago. Before I had realized, I said "just one mor"’ to the rider. He went huge on a wall ride , I got the shot but he ended up hurting his ankle a lot, which put him out of action for a couple of months. I felt bad, but I always ask the athlete to tell me when they have had enough or don’t want to do something. RP: One of my most noticeable shoots was probably a skateboard project on Sealand. It’s a fortress built 6 miles off the coast of Harwhich, UK, during the battle of Britain, and it was deserted afterward. During the days of radio piracy it got taken over by Roy Bates and his merry men and he crowned himself prince. Sealand is now a principality, and has seen a hostile takeover by a dutch/German crew, only to be taken back on Christmas eve by Prince Bates in a helicopter. The crew still holds the fortress with all means available to defend it, so it was an adventure going there. We built ramps on Sealand that blended in with the environment and shot from a helicopter the first day.
The second day we went out on a rib and were told that with a flat sea the travel time to the fortress could be under ten minutes. Needless to say, it wasn't flat at all--five foot waves were all over the place--and because we were driving out, it meant shooting up the wave, get airborne and land flat behind it. My camera bag was in the front of the boat on the floor and after every wave it went up in the air a little bit, only to get smashed into the floor on every landing. There was no way I could secure it, because we were hanging on to the boat with all fours. After an hour and a half we arrived, got hoisted up with the entire rib boat, and I fully expected my equipment to be destroyed. To my surprise, it was absolutely unscathed and I could get to work. Because of an upcoming storm that could have us stranded there for a week we had to cut that shoot short to just two hours, so we were running around on a 54-foot platform, trying to shoot everything we had in mind. The photos came out nice and it was definitely an adventure I’ll never forget.
What are some of the most important things to keep in mind when taking photos at BMX events?
GM: It's important to deliver the correct images to clients if that is what you are there to do. It's not always about shooting one jump all day: there is a lot to do--portraits , lifestyle, action, wide venue shots, crowds shots... the list goes on. Action is still very important--getting the best moments, the best tricks--but you also need to show how awesome the event is. It becomes a busy day.
RP: Watch very carefully where you walk or stand. It’s very easy to get hurt if you stand in the wrong place. It’s better to ask than lose a camera or even get hurt. Most of all, have fun--people pick up on that and will want to work with you.[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="633"] © Rutger Pauw[/caption]Any advice for aspiring extreme sports photographers?GM: Just shoot a lot. Get out and practice, meet athletes and get their trust. Push the limits of creativity. Refine your skill, just like athletes refine theirs. Have fun, then results will follow. RP: Don’t shoot in burst mode. Learn to recognize the correct timing of a shot and be conscious about what moment you want to show in a photo. Of course, assisting a good photographer helps with learning about light and the practicalities of the job too. Furthermore, I find that if you are genuinely having fun at the job, then that’ll get noticed and people will want to work with you.

For the first time ever, undergraduates from the photography, design and modeling departments came together under the guidance of photography veteran Bruce Dorn and created a magnificent collection of pictures and outfits, now on show at the school.On October 23rd, 2013, Dorn and the students went to New York’s famed High Line Park to take pictures, seeking a natural background regardless of the crisp autumn weather. Student photographers were put into pairs and given a model and a designer to work with. The challenges at hand was to work together with the same model and fashion style and make a collection that is unique and different from their partner’s work. But they weren’t alone; this photo shoot had some great sponsors to help them out. The companies included WD (Western Digital), Canon USA and Hahnemühle USA. WD offered their connected storage technology so the students would have easy access to save and open their photos. Canon provided state-of-the-art printers and cameras, including the PRO-1 printer and imagePROGRAF iPF8400 large format printer that gave the exhibit both huge 44x60’’ canvas photos and smaller 13x19’’ images. And the photos were printed on Hahnemühle USA’s Photo Luster 290gsm paper, giving each photo a glossy, professional shine. Other sponsors included Lexar and Lowepro. Their support took the project higher than anyone could have imagined and polished it to fantastic standard.[caption id="attachment_39981" align="aligncenter" width="600"] © Margrit Wenzel[/caption]The collaboration was put together with the help Curtis Willocks, Adjunct Assistant Photography Professor, and Lou Desiderio, President of Synergy Communications. The two have known each other for about twenty-five years, with each meeting bringing great amounts of creativity and innovation. This was the first year both men considered pursuing a massive project spreading across the F.I.T. departments. “There weren’t many problems” says Willocks, “only little things—but nothing we couldn’t handle.”[caption id="attachment_39982" align="aligncenter" width="600"] © Mikayla Madigan[/caption]Willocks aimed to reach out to all of the classes years across the departments and recruited at least one student photographer from each student body. He explained that the students were excited about how this project was the only time they got to work exclusively with one another. While they might be familiar with each other, none of them—especially the photographers—ever collaborated like this. Finding a happy medium between the two photographers, the designer and the models was the trickiest part because there were many perspectives trying to shine at once, he explained. “But that’s what school is about, trying new things, explore something different and work together—it’s great.” And it clearly showed through the final products.[caption id="attachment_39980" align="aligncenter" width="600"] © Shelby Beamon[/caption]Designer and F.I.T graduate Natalya Nyn provided outfits from her clothing line, Toy Syndrome. Specializing in evening wear, she now aims to create outfits that could be commonplace but still have a unique twist. Nyn uses small three-dimensional models to adorn her tops and the figures include bugs, lizards and even tigers. Her designs even caught the eye of director and actress of HBO’s “Girls,” Lena Dunham, who wore one of Toy Syndrome’s outfits on the show. Nyn offered some of her outfits for the photo shoot and student photographer Justyna Fiajlska worked primarily with her designer. Armed with a Canon Mark 2 with a flash A x 1600, she approached the project with an eye for romantic elements. She mentioned the necessity to maintain balance between partners because of the different styles each one will have and evoked the risk of clashing and uncooperative action. She said that she would do it again, but will make sure to research the designers first—a lesson that will resonate with even pro fashion shooters![caption id="attachment_39979" align="aligncenter" width="600"] © Justyna Fiajlska[/caption]Jordan Tibero, junior and winner of the WD Fashion Walk, enjoyed her experience with the project. Also using a Canon Mark 2, she utilized a 24 x 7D lens and special effect lenses to create ethereal photos that make it appear as if the models aren’t in the urban environment. She worked with knitwear designer Amanda Henderson and included props such as a mesh wall for her model to interact with. “My partner was my best friend, “says Tibero, “even though our styles are opposite, we understood each other’s perspectives.” At the end of the day, it was a great learning experiment for everyone and it will be something future student will be looking forward to.The exhibit is on view in the lobby of the Fred Pomerantz Building located on F.I.T.’s campus (corner of West 27th Street and 7th Ave. in Manhattan). It runs through August 15.
