Well, this is just adorable. A photographic (and photogenic) duo from Washington, DC trekked all the way up to Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada and hiked up Fairview Mountain, where the fella proposed to his lady; they kiss and smile and hold hands and take thousands of photos to share with the world. Very colorful, very cute:
Don’t be totally fooled by the cutesy style, though: these people are professionals. Lindsay King runs her own wedding and creative photography studio down in Washington, while her husband-to-be, Greg, is a full-time graphic designer. They both carry a Canon 5D Mark II along with a whole bevy of lenses—and, presumably, piles of memory cards for videos like these.
It’s a good pitch for both their business and Banff National Park, Canada’s oldest national park, which encompasses much of the Rocky Mountains and is one of Canada’s most-visited tourist attractions.
I mean, aww, jeez, aren’t they just so cute? The bar just keeps raising for endearing YouTube proposal videos.

While smartphone cameras have unquestionably evolved in megapixels and color quality, manual controls haven’t kept up, keeping smartphone cameras as the digital equivalent of a throwaway point-and-shoot film camera—until now. Nokia’s Lumia 1020 introduces specific ISO control, shutter delay, manual focus, and a shutter speed of up to four seconds to create some stunning examples of light painting:

Tilt shift lenses aren’t just for quirky landscapes and making things appear to be miniature, they can also be useful in portrait photography. Take a look at the following video to learn a few useful tips for utilizing a specialized piece of glass that you may not have considered for portraits:
Using the Nikon 85mm f/2.8D PC-E Lens on a Nikon D4, the photographer in the video had full control over the slices of image that were in focus, giving him complete creative control over his portraits.
Having complete control over the areas that are in focus is especially useful for environmental portraits in which certain background elements need to be out of focus to prevent distraction from the subject. In this case, the photographer was trying to blur out the busy store in the background so the eye is drawn instantly to the man in the image.
If you don’t want to spend quite that much money on what could be considered a specialty lens, there are more affordable options on the market such as the LensBaby Composer which currently retails at a fraction of the price as the Nikon lens.
