There are moments in life that you can’t pause to capture, neither can you go back and do it all over again. In this case, your answer comes from GoPro, a company that creates small, wearable, shock proof and water-resistant cameras. Designed especially for adventure photography, they only weigh 3.3 oz and have been put to places like crocodile mouths or shark jaws to get some amazing shots.
Nick Woodman, Founder and CEO of the company, says that it was all started by following a dream: while on his surfing trip in Australia back in 2002, he was hoping to make some stunning pictures, but the technology at that moment wouldn’t give him such chance. Ever since, he had a dream of creating a camera that could – and this is how GoPro was started. Check out what it enables people to capture!
An award-winning photographer Tim Flach captures animals in a way they haven’t been seen before. His newest book, More than Human, is a true animal portrait masterpiece, where the expressions of the creatures look almost human-like. The artist spends hours to find the right individual lighting patterns, obverses animals’ reaction to music or silence, and even adjusts the room temperature.
The proximity to the carefully lit and cropped images puts us in a strangely intimate relationship with their protagonists. The artist says that what might seem as a result of capturing a spontaneous and unselfconscious behavior of the animals, actually requires quite some time of observation, planning and setting up. The results are simply stunning!
