With the power of Photoshop and other photo manipulating software, it’s not hard to create a convincing fake image. This can be good in terms of art and creative outlets where image manipulation can serve to break through many limitations. However, it can also produce false evidence in courts and generate misinformation through the media. Hence, the field of photo forensics has been developed to dispel these fake images. In this video, you will see how these photos can be determined as fake by finding inconsistencies in the shadows of the image (for those of you reading this by email, the video can be seen here):
Though the math and process sounds very complicated, the idea is rather simple. If there is one strong light source, all the shadows in the image must fall correspondingly to that light source. A straight line must be able to travel from a point on the shadow, to a point on the object creating the shadow, to the light source itself (Via Mashable). Though objects and shadows can be somewhat ambiguous, forensic analysts can still project conservative estimates of where the light source may be. By comparing multiple points of estimated projections, inconsistencies can be determined. The more points that are added, the higher the probability is of determining whether a photo is real or fake.

In today’s featured photo captured by Kevin Elsby, a brilliantly-colored kingfisher holds a tiny fish in its sharp beak as proof of its impressive fishing skills. Apparently snapped just after the catch, the photo shows water droplets still splashing from the fish’s silver scales:
Sporting bright aqua and orange feathers, the bird almost seems to dance a little jig before eating its tasty sushi lunch.

With so many timelapse videos floating around the internet recently, you may be looking to create your own timelapse. Well look no further than Nathaniel Dodson‘s latest project Philly Is Ugly. Not only did Dodson spend months creating a beautiful timelpase of the city of Philadelphia, but he also took the time to create several tutorials showing the things he learned throughout the project (for those of you reading this by email, the timelapse video and tutorial videos can be seen here):
The first thing Dodson discusses is the inspiration and planning that went into creating his timelapse. The idea, he says, just popped into his head. But he had never done a timelapse before so he started doing research on the subject by watching other timelapses and videos on technique. As you can see, Dodson’s video turned out pretty well for someone without any prior experience filming a timelapse:
Next, Dodson discusses framing his shots, choosing the correct settings for his camera, and using the intervalometer. If the technical aspects of capturing a timelapse are a bit confusing to you, check out this video:
The next four videos are all about post-processing and how to create your timelapse using certain software. This first one focuses on the basics of setting up your video size, frame rate, and importing your images:
Fixing color tone and making other small edits is basically the same as editing a still image. The only difference is that you will need to go through every set of images and edit one frame from each and apply the changes to all the photos in the set. Dodson shows you what tweaks and edits are most beneficial for creating a good looking timelapse:
Shooting scenes at sunrise or sunset when the light is changing dramatically and quickly can be tricky. In this video, Dodson discusses how he uses bulb ramping and how he uses post-production techniques to help keep the exposure of his shots consistent:
Perhaps one of the lesser discussed portions of creating a timelapse is rendering and exporting your series of images into their final video form (Via Fstoppers). This video covers how to create a series of video clips that you can move and edit in your timelapse:
If you haven’t gotten a good idea of the scope of creating a timelapse yet, this infographic will help you get a grasp on the immense amount of time and dedication that it takes to create one. Here are some stats from the Philly Is Ugly project:
