NASA's Parker Solar Probe has reported back alive and well after passing closer to the Sun than any spacecraft in history. At 4:46 pm EST on November 7, 2018, mission control at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Lab confirmed receiving the unmanned craft's status beacon via the space agency's Deep Space Network after coming within 15 million mi (24 million km) of the Sun's surfa
Some months ago, I did a speed riding photoshoot with FriedeFly in the Swiss Alps. I was able to try out some new stuff in the snow and managed to capture some really nice shots. During the shoot, I also played around with my old Jinbei DC II 600 V flash since I was fascinated by shots of skiers made with flash that overpowers the sun.While using the Jinbei in this harsh environment, I faced a lo
In an ideal world, when you wanted sun rays in a landscape image, nature would provide the perfect conditions. However, it rarely works out that way out in the field. Fortunately, with photo editing software, it is possible to accentuate natural sun rays or even add natural-looking rays during your post-processing workflow. In the video below, photographers Mads Peter Iversen shows us how to ad
After 11 years exploring the asteroid belt, NASA's Dawn mission has come to the end. On Monday, the space agency confirmed that all contact has been lost with the deep space probe after it failed to make two scheduled communications with the Deep Space Network (DSN) on October 31 and November 1, 2018. Having eliminated other possibilities, the Dawn team has concluded that the unmanned spac
The Parker Solar Probe has only been in space about two and a half months, and it's already breaking records. On October 29, 2018 at 1:04 pm EDT, the unmanned spacecraft came within 26.55 million mi (42.73 million km) of the Sun's surface – closer than any other man-made object...

France's Optinid recently caught our attention with its La Tête dans les étoiles (or Head in the stars) tiny house, which is topped by a roof that slides open to expose its bedroom to the elements. The firm's latest model has the same standout feature, but sports a different exterior design and a new layout inside that provides an additional loft. .. Continue Reading Tiny house open
As part of Jay P. Morgan’s ongoing Laws of Light video series, his latest video is all about high speed sync. High-speed sync strobes allow you to shoot at shutter speeds faster than your camera’s built-in flash sync, which often ranges from 1/160s to 1/250s. If you are shooting outside in bright light, particularly with fast lenses, a camera’s built-in flash sync will often not

The origins of NASA's Parker Solar Probe mission can be traced back to a paper published 60 years ago by astrophysicist Eugene Parker, describing high speed matter emanating from the center of our solar system. Today the spacecraft carrying his name lifted off and is now en route to the Sun, where it will enter its orbit in an attempt to delve into these solar winds and their closely guard
