27 Super Cool Pictures of Detroit

A nice thing about photogaphy is that if you take a walk though any city, you'll find some spots that usually no one would care, but once you take a picture of it, the captured image gets its own life, giving that particular spot a new mood. In the blog called The Motor(less) City, the photographers portrait a post industrial Detroit... almost left empty, with at least 12,000 abandoned houses, ready to be torn down. This is the scenario of these pictures, and I bet you'll take a new a look at this city. Don't forget to make a visit to the blog! Those guy appreciate it! Cheers! ;)

10 Years of The Matrix

10 years ago a true revolution began. With the release of the first installment of The Matrix franchise, the movies industry was not the same anymore. To celebrate it, we've got some awesome pictures and clips to show you. Bring it on! Bullet time and slow motion kung fu fight scenes drew a new line on how movies were made back then. I remember with awe how stunned I was the first time I watch The Matrix in a movie theater... and even after having watched it so many time, it still facinates me. The Wachowski brothers are THE MEN. I really hope there's a 10th Anniversary commemorative DVD on its way... anyways, here my selection of pictures, to celebrate the 10 Years of The Matrix. And of course, here's some of the best scenes from the trilogy. Gotta love it! :)

In Brazil, we usually go for the other kind of football, soccer. But we gotta recognized that the American one delivers us some amazing moments, such as the tackle. Seeing flying dudes is one hell of a ride. Of course, this is a game for those who are big boned, while soccer is better played by slim guys. Anyways, here are some amazing pictures, taken at the right moment, showing us the train wreck collisions that often happen between football players. Totally bad ass.

20 Stunning Infrared Pictures

Everybody knows we're suckers for photography. From HDR to Polaroids, all these have been featured at some point, here at Abduzeedo. Recently, I've came across a technique that even though not being new, has become popular with digital photography. I'm talking about Infrared Photography. During a little visit to DeviantArt, I found many great examples of this technique, and picked out 20 pics to show you guys. Infrared photography has been around for a long time, but capturing these stunning pictures on film required true perseverance. Digital imaging has changed all of that. Shooting infrared photos has never been easier or more fun. When you shoot infrared, you're actually dealing with a spectrum of light that's outside our normal range of perception. - Andrew Logan So, here are these stunning pictures, which I know you all will like. And please, visit each author's page!! Enjoy! Cheers. ;) Picture by shin-ex Picture by DingoDave Picture by Knechtrootrecht Picture by La-Vita-a-Bella Picture by Andross01 Picture by DingoDave Picture by Miso Picture by Sergio Pachini Picture by Gordon McBryde Picture by DingoDave Picture by Andross01 Picture by EdwinMartinez Picture by From-theceiling Picture by Werol Picture by Extenderi Picture by Roland.r Picture by Patrick McGuire Stock picture by Stock II

Beautiful HDR Pictures - Part 4

Who doesn't love to see some HDR photos, this effect that brings such a new life into a photo, continuing with this beautiful series I bring another set of great HDR photos to satisfy your needs of inspiration.

Beautiful Photography by Joey Lawrence

I'm couting the days to put my hands on the camera I've bought a few days ago. I've always wondered what kinds of pictures I would take, what kinds of effects I would produce, if I would photoshop it or not. One thing I know for sure: portraits are an awesome way to start. Joey Lawrence is a Canadian photographer, who's got big clients such as Warner Brothers Records and NBC, among others, and spends some time traveling around the world taking superb pictures. I mean... that's probably one of my biggest dreams, to photograph the world! And I was really surprised when I saw his picture in his 'about me', 'cause he looks really young! Makes me think that any of us, armed with a strong willing power, could fit his shoes. Way to go, Joey! You may visit his portfolio here. Cheers! Update: I totally forgot to mention it, but Joey's is selling in his site an awesome tutorial DVD, full of tips and tricks! Really worth checking it out. ;)

Oh boy. I'm feeling sad right now. =p

20 Beautiful HDR Pictures

There are some photography techniques that really give me the goose bumps, but the good ones. HDR is one of those techniques... and you'll probably love these as much as I do. "In computer graphics and photography, high dynamic range imaging (HDRI) is a set of techniques that allows a greater dynamic range of exposures (the range of values between light and dark areas) than normal digital imaging techniques. The intention of HDRI is to accurately represent the wide range of intensity levels found in real scenes ranging from direct sunlight to shadows." - From Wikipedia. What I've read on some foruns is that a program called Photomatix does the job... Does anybody have already used it? I'm looking forward to it. Well... either way, if I don't get to use it, I'll probably find out how to simulate that effect on Photoshop. All this pictures are from a Flickr HDR Group.
