Weekly photo contest: Reflections!

Reflections make for a very unique subject in photos. Whether the reflection is in a mirror, water, glass window, or something else, it can add an element to a photo that makes it stand out. Your task this week is to use reflections to your advantage. The win this week will go to the person who can capture an image that just wouldn't be the same unless that reflection was exactly as it was.

The contest begins today and ends Tuesday, May 27th at 6 p.m. Eastern time. Good luck!

Bentley's latest ad was shot with iPhones and assembled on an iPad and it looks amazing

Bentley has released a new ad that touches their cars that you're likely to never be able to afford, but in an interesting twist the entire thing was recorded with a few iPhone 5s handsets and assembled using an iPad Air. Granted, they're using fancy add-on lenses and motorized rigs that you probably don't have. And they got to edit it in the back of a $300,000 Bentley Mulsanne. But otherwise, it's just like the videos you can make with your iPhone and iPad.

Weekly photo contest: Storms!

Whether you love them or hate them, one thing all areas of the world face occasionally are storms. While they can ruin your afternoon park outing rather quickly, they make for amazingly beautiful photos. From a thunder head rolling in over a lake to dark skies over endless fields, storms create powerful images. This week your task is to capture a storm photo — while staying safe of course. Feel free to use one you've captured in the past if you'd like as well!

The contest begins today and ends Tuesday, May 20th at 6 p.m. Eastern time. Good luck!

Weekly photo contest: Filters!

Filters are not only fun to use, they add something unique that distinguishes your photo of something from everyone else's. They also make it easier to be creative and really think outside the box when editing a photo. Sometimes applying filters on top of filters can turn something dull into something amazing. While filters aren't appropriate for every photo we take, they have their place. That's your task this week. Snap a photo and experiment with filters. Be sure to submit the ones you just don't think would be the same without filter effects!

The contest begins today and ends Tuesday, May 13th at 6 p.m. Eastern time. Good luck!

Weekly photo contest: Flowers!

For a lot of folks spring is finally here and that means green grass and flowers finally in bloom. There's nothing like seeing the light at the end of the wintery tunnel to put you in a good mood. That also means it's a great time to get outside, breathe in the fresh air, and take in the changes around you. Your challenge this week is flowers. Like last week, it's a great opportunity to get out there and grab some macro shots if you've got accessories such as an Olloclip!

The contest begins today and ends Tuesday, May 6th at 6 p.m. Eastern time. Good luck!

This is an awesome opportunity to grab an Olloclip or other kind of lens attachment if you've got one!

The contest begins today and ends Tuesday, April 29th at 6 p.m. Eastern time. Good luck!

CFMulti DSLR CompactFlash media card adapter review

With the exception of the Mac Pro, every Mac that's available these days has a built-in SDXC card slot. That makes it convenient to transfer digital photos and video from cameras that use SD card slots. If you prefer a camera that uses CompactFlash you're not out of luck, fortunately. The solution for that problem is the CFMulti from Synchrotech.

Flickr app for iOS updated with new interface and fresh editing tools

Flickr for iOS just got a complete overhaul, bumping the app to version 3.0 and bringing a host of new and welcome features. First thing you'll notice upon opening the new Flickr is the completely redesigned interface, bringing it to modern design standards on iOS 7. It also just looks plain better than the old version, even though it wasn't an ugly app before by any means. The app has also improved its suite of editing tools that were previously updated back in August.
