Considering last weekâ€™s Iranian missile story, I though that Henry Hadlowâ€™s Tell A Lie project was rather fitting:
The most controversial lies told with photography today are those told by news photographers who manipulate their work photographs to tell a different story, for example, Liu Weiqiang‘s faked photograph of antelope and the China-Tibet rail link.
He also ads that he wanted to â€œflip this lie on its head and use a camera to mimic common Photoshop effectsâ€.
Along those same lines, I thought that Fubizâ€™s Google Images idea was another fantastic way to take a photo with a digital spin that gives it a simple yet fun effect:
The light trail is a beautiful addition to any nighttime shot, so if youâ€™d like to add this style to your skill set, then head on over to Digital Photography School and read up on their guide to shooting light trails.
The basic idea is a long exposure and a narrow aperture, but thereâ€™s a lot that you can do to add to the effect.
