The Friday round-up

What’s caught our eye this week?

First off, some striking images from My Modern Met showing some far away lands and exotic places. The pictures of Afghanistan were particularly striking, both beautiful and intense at the same time – especially the ones with people going about their daily business amid destruction and hardship. The photos were taken by Steve McCurry – the man who captured the famous Afghan Girl image.

One image that really caught the eye – and certainly did the rounds on twitter – was this electric image of lightning from the BBC News website. Apparently the photographer had waited 40 years to capture the shot – I think you can safely say it was well worth the wait!

This next image is really something else. Normally, describing a mountain and some clouds probably wouldn’t excite the imagination. But this picture is different. The combination of low-light, crisp air and a remarkable cloud formation produced a remarkable image that looks slightly out of this world!

I’m sure most of you already know about, like, or follow the National Geographic’s Photo of the Day – but it’s well worth another mention on here, especially as you can download their image to brighten up your desktop everyday.

The latest news from Colour Confidence towers centres around some funky new products for the photographer who already has everything! Take a look at our new Booq bags; the Mamba shift and Mamba Catch, and get the latest offerings from Datacolor to help you get those pictures looking good with the SpyderCheckr, SpyderCheckr Pro and SpyderLenscal.

We will also be rolling out some training hints and tips soon, so if there’s anything you want to ask us about all things photography, comment below, tweet us or post a message on our wall.
