Travel photography often has the tendency to become a little redundant. Breaking new ground as a travel photographer by creating a unique photograph–or in this case, an entire collection–can be tedious. The task, however, was no problem for Murad Osmann, a music video producer and photographer. While doing some extensive traveling with his girlfriend, Osmann snapped a photograph in various locations of his girlfriend leading him around by his hand. Take a look:
The fashionably uninhibited girlfriend coupled with the unique perspective of the album earns Osmann a gold star in the creativity department, and a boost of internet fame and followers as the album is well on it’s way to hit a million views soon.

Like any professional photographer who loves what they do, Douglas Sonders decided to use his very rare weekend off from shooting for commercial clients to work on a personal photography project. Since the original movie came out, Sonders has been obsessed with RoboCop, so doing a RoboCop themed shoot was like a dream come true:
After flying to Arizona and road-tripping through the state in a rental car, Sonders finally met up with Reiko, a Phoenix resident who just so happened to have a replica RoboCop costume and squad car.
Using the PhaseOne IQ140 and PhaseOne lenses, Sonders spent two and half hours photographing RoboCop. To help balance out the lighting he used a Profoto D1 500 and 1000 powered by a pair of Honda EU2000 Quiet Generators. For light diffusion he used a Chimera Octobox and beauty dish.
After the shoot was over, Sonders post-processed the RAW images to get the mood and colors just right. The final images convey the cinematic look he was going for.

As the conflict in Kiev continues, the images coming out of the area have been gruesome and telltale of the violence that is taking place in Ukraine. The striking image below shows the juxtaposition of Independence Square, commonly referred to as Maidan, in its before and after state:
The once beautiful square has been reduced to ashes and destruction in what is being compared to a war zone, as the protesters and government battle one another. The fate of this country and its people is not known. While there are signs of progress, the violence has taken a devastating toll on both sides.

The ICANN recently released a handful of new domain name extensions that may be of interest to photographers and those involved in the photography industry. The following video explores the new options and some of the advantages and disadvantages of the extensions:
The New Domain Names
The announcement is welcome news to many photographers who have been trying to get a specific domain name but have had difficulties doing so when they discover all the extensions are already being used. The new extensions are:
Pros and Cons
Using .photography or one of the other extensions may help increase your SEO when users are entering photography as a keyword, helping to boost traffic to your website. They will also help provide a description to your domain name, letting users know that you are photographer.
On the hand, because the extensions are so new, they may confuse users not familiar with them. Until the extensions become more widespread, it is possible that some search engines may not rank them as high in the results, but this is expected to improve over time.
Of course, like any good domain name, the good ones tend to go fast. If you are thinking about grabbing a new domain, you had better act fast or risk losing out.
