Round 5, lets have ya! Some background info on one of the coolest photos I’ve seen this year? Got it. Some cool cameras you didn’t know existed? Check. A bunch of photographers talking about their worst photos? Unusual, but it’s all here.

How a photographer got this shot of uptown Charlotte

If you haven’t seen this photo already, then you’re in for a real treat. “Yes, he tinkered with the color, contrast and clarity in Photoshop. No, that’s not a mash up of several shots. It’s just one. And yes, it’s real. The rainbow. The storm. The skyline. All of it.” As you can see from the preview of the photo below, it’s a combination of the right place at the right time (that takes real commitment), and the skills to get the shot. It’s a really cool photo, and a good story to go along with it.

Boston pays $170k to settle cell phone recording lawsuit

The City of Boston has agreed to pay Simon Glik $170,000 in damages and legal fees to settle a civil rights lawsuit. Glik was arrested in 2007 on Boston Common for using his cell phone to record the arrest of another man. Police then arrested Glik, too, and charged him under the strict Massachusetts wiretapping statute. They eventually dropped the charges, but with the help of the Massachusetts ACLU, Glik filed a civil lawsuit against the city for false arrest.

And so he should! This sort of thing makes me sick, and I’m glad he’s being compensated for having this rights suspended.

10 Photographers You Should Ignore

Take this post with a pinch of salt, after all, it is posted under the humor section of Wired.com. They are by no means saying that these photographers are no good, because clearly they’re some of the best that have ever lived; what they’re trying to say is that you shouldn’t pay too much attention to how they’ve taken their photos, or compare yours to theirs.

Some interesting points, and at the very least, you may find a couple photographers you’ve not heard of before (but don’t forget to ignore them…).

My worst shot

Sigh… ‘My worst shot’, really? Ok, these are some photos that you may in fact really like (I know that I mostly did), but there’s more to the story than meets the eye. A missed opportunity perhaps, or the wrong circumstances, or just a plain bad photo. Photographers are generally proud to show off their best shots, but what about their worst? Jane Bown, Martin Parr, Terry O’Neill and others reveal all.

7 Cool Cameras You Never Knew Existed

“With cameras like the Canon EOS 5D Mark III hitting the market, it’s good to have a few alternatives that aren’t so expensive. We’ve rounded up seven of the coolest cameras that you probably never knew existed for your viewing enjoyment”

This is similar to the camera post which I featured in the third addition of this series, called 7 Incredible (Yet Real) High-Tech Cameras, only these are a little bit more peculiar. I personally like the pistol grip version…

Artists reveal stunning post-apocalyptic images of cities around the globe

From New York City to Beijing, a team of artists are shedding light on what the world would be like at the end of humanity, by using ND filters which are so dark, the exposure has to last for a very long time to capture the image, which removes all of the movement from the photo. 

In Silent World, artists Lucie and Simon have taken the world’s most familiar and populous cities and removed all but one or two people to create the illusion of a lonely world. In the thought-provoking work, places like the normally bustling Times Square and Tiananmen Square appear absent of their crowds.

Is the iPhone the Only Camera You Need?

This is a very in-depth, slightly controversial post about how the iPhone is changing the way we take photos. It’s always with us, in fact, you may even be reading this on an iPhone. This post is packed full of information on how you can make the most out of your camera phone, along with apps that you can use to take better or more interesting photos, and accessories to improve its performance.
