Poptography

You may have noticed that photography has increased in popularity in the past decade, you know, just a bit.

This photo boom can almost entirely be attributed to the photoing power of mobile phones. We’ve entered a new golden age of photography and it’s fascinating to watch current culture mix up the art a bit.

In this article on ImageBrief, Avril Delaney (whoa, cool name!) covers what she believes to be the top five ways pop culture is influencing photography. She presents some interesting challenges artists face as a result of these influences, and we’re always up for a challenge … or 5!

Surf’s Up!

Capturing the drama, movement, varied textures and colors of the sea is something almost every artist attempts. We’ve come a long way from mixing pigment on cave walls. These days we can snag a wave with a tap of our finger.

Technology has elevated our ability to catch waves, and in more ways than pop-out boards. Waterproof casings, almost infinite storage capacity and lightning fast shutters make for stunning photos when combined with daring photogs.

Take a look at this article with gallery on three such surf chargers.

Been craving to carve out some of your own photos? Check out the waterproof iPhone Supersuit. You could snap a photo, edit and share all before taking the drop. Epic!
