Colourful Moon-3 (by EddieTrimarchi)

You wouldn’t know by looking at the moon, that it was radiating so many different colours. Caused by the composition of minerals in the lunar soil, these colours are captured by cameras but need image processing techniques to make them visible. Taken September 26 2010 with a 6” f6 (900mm) Maksutov Newtonian Telescope and a Canon 20D DSLR camera. This is a single 1/40th second exposure at ISO 100. Photoshop was used to enhance the colours to a visible level.

Great interview with National Geographic photographer Sam Abell on the difference between taking and making a photo.


When reporting major events, gravity’s natural pull brings us to where everyone else already is. It’s a herd instinct. If this is where everyone else is something important must be going on. At least this is what we tell ourselves.

Unfortunately, it’s a totally understandable if totally frustrating recurring example of how we’re not as independent and creative as we might actually like to be.

It also doesn’t help in any way to distinguish us from everyone else who’s covering the exact same thing we are in whatever chosen medium we might be doing it in.

Enter Gregg Bleakney

Earlier this summer he covered the Tour de France. Not only did he leave the typical media scrum. He ditched his DSLR in favor of shooting with an iPhone.

Via a Q&A with Wired:

As an emerging photographer, I feel like I should always push hard to separate my work from everyone else’s, and I started to look for another way to cover the event. I was really blown away by the energy and spectator culture outside of the restricted-entry press areas at the start and finish lines of the race; the occasional moments when athletes leave their security perimeter to interact with fans, the security perimeter itself, and with the spectators interacting with each other. So I decided to spend several stages working outside of credentialed areas without a press pass and jokingly dubbed this my “Totally Not Behind the Scenes at the Tour de France” project.
