The multiple beaches to explore alongside that light gradient blue sky and let's not forget about the sunsets as well. Let's admire this beautiful collection!

Dolomites in Infrared by Andrea and Francesco Padovani

Nine days, more than 110 kilometers of trek and three rolls of Aerochrome film is the equation for this epic gallery of photographs by Andrea and Francesco Padovani, a graphic design duo from Italy. This past summer the pair embarked on a follow up of their photographic project called "Dolomites in Infrared" - an ongoing project they started in 2016 in which they aimed to capture some of the most suggestive landscapes of the Italian Dolomites on delicate infrared film. This kind of film is quite unforgiving, and small changes in the light and the weather can deliver very different results in terms of color and contrast. We're in awe of the beautiful shots captured and the effort to get each shot makes them that much more special to us. Take a look at the first part of the project here and if you're interested in limited edition fine art prints you can drop a line here. #DOLOMITESININFRARED  

Beautiful Photography with the iPhone

Beautiful Photography with the iPhone by Eric Van Nynatten

It's incredible how technology allowed us to express ourselves and so many different ways. Photography is one of the biggest forms of expression and art that took fully advantage or got mass adoption. The cameras on smartphones are getting better every year and they can already replace the traditional cameras. They say that the best camera is the one you have available when you needed. You always have your phone with you, so there's your answer. But to give you a bit more context about, check out the beautiful photography examples that Eric Van Nynatten shared on his Behance profile. It's titled Shots on iPhone, part 1 and 2. As I said, it's not about the equipment as much as the vision to capture day to day moments and make them memorable or should I dare say, magic. For this series of photos shot on iPhone, I wanted to push the capabilities of the iPhone and see if I could achieve the same results as my full-frame mirrorless, from shooting in ideal sunlit settings to low-light conditions. All images were shot on iPhone 6/8 Plus and edited using VSCO & Snapseed apps for iOS.

Recently I noticed a few of my friends on social media hustling down on this black & white photography challenge. It was funny and interesting to see the results! Most of them simply add a filter to their pictures but we do understand there is a bit more conceptual thinking that goes into this style of photography. Let's take a look at the work of Jason Peterson (@jasonmpeterson) who is a Chicago-based photographer that takes black & white photography to a whole different level. Take a look.

Photography: Exploring Singapore Day & Night

Photography: Exploring Singapore Day & Night

I am slowly gearing up for our next adventure and hopefully we will be heading to Singapore this year or in 2018. One of the best thing I do enjoy before a vacation trip, one of the many things and it's exploring a city or place through the people who have been there. Especially through photography, I feel that travel vlogs are usually boring (my opinion!) and more about vlogging about themselves than anything else. Let's explore Singapore through the lenses of Thailand-based photographer Peeradon Ariyanukooltorn and his style is exactly the reflection of what I would be taking from cityscape, scenery, abstract architecture and even stride by shots. Peeradon Ariyanukooltorn is a freelance photographer from Nonthaburi, Thailand. I would highly suggest for you guys to follow his work on Behance. It's filled with quality projects, he definitely needs more followers. Let's get on it!

Nightscape Photography Series: Ultraviolet Break of Day

Did you get a chance to watch Blade Runner 2049 this Weekend? I still haven't, sadly. With this movie release, many of us have been re-exploring that movie genre but for us on ABDZ; it's photography! We are taking a look at this nightscape photography series by FIELD IO, where are we headed this time? In the streets of Shenzhen’s Huaqiangbei also known as “The World’s Greatest Electronics Market where after some exploration on Adobe Lightroom, Marcus decided to create a series based on that uncanny atmosphere popularly inspired in the original Blade Runner movie. FIELD IO is the work of Marcus Wendt who is a designer and visual artist from London, UK. You should definitely check out his Behance for more of his work.

Mobile Photography: First unedited images taken with the Pixel 2

Mobile Photography: First unedited images taken with the Pixel 2

Over the long Weekend, Google has released a bunch of photos that were taken with their latest Pixel 2. It looks quite stunning and they are unedited! From the announcement, I was a bit disappointed that the camera didn't change since the original Pixel. But my feedback is quite redeeming itself with what they are promising and what they called: "computational photography". Equipped with a single 12MP camera with a f/1.8 aperture and 1.4μm pixels; the Pixel 2 (judging by this collection) is also moving ahead with their portrait mode feature that looks quite beautiful as well. All that jazz to be saying that I am very excited about what's to come with the Pixel 2, I can't wait to test it out in the wild. What do you think about these pictures? Taking great photos and videos is one of the things you do most with your phone, so we set out to deliver the best photography experience. You get stunningly crisp, clear, and detailed photos in any light. You can also take high-quality portrait shots with the perfect background blurs, from both the front and back camera. New motion photos capture a few seconds of video around the shot so you can relive the moment around the picture. The Pixel 2 camera is powered by our computational photography and machine learning (ML) capabilities which make all these great features easy, fun and fast for you to use.

Soothing California Beach Photography by David Behar

Soothing California Beach Photography by David Behar

David Behar, a photographer from Los Angeles, California has shared a beautiful set of photography work titled Playa del Rey. In my opinion, he was able to capture the spirit of the beaches in southern California with a blue/teal/green color palette that is leans towards the cool spectrum. The photos also have a minimalist look with clean compositions and the ever present blue sky. I have been spending my vacations in Santa Barbara for the past 3 years and I've never been able to translate the feeling but now I can just point to David's photos.  Photography More information visit: Instagram Prints

Digital Photography: Autumn At The Lake Series

Digital Photography: Autumn At The Lake Series

Sadly but summer is definitely over...I mean for those living in North! I will try not to think too much about Winter just yet. Instead, let's enjoy the beautiful colours of Fall/Autumn which we adore before the actual cold. Let's travel to Germany with photographer Kilian Schönberger so we can discover the beautiful colours of Autumn captured through Kilian's camera and digital photography. Hope you will like this one! Kilian Schönberger is a professional landscape and architect photographer based in Cologne, Germany.You should definitely follow via Behance for more of his photography works. Autumn at the lake - a tribute to the hidden beauty of fading colours at the lakeside of one of the many beautiful lakes in north-east Germany. The quiet water surface is like a mirror of life. The reflection captures endless moments of reality like thousands and thousands of photos. The real and the mirrored world, the evanescent appeal of autumn - a strong subject of vanitas to me.
