For most of summer 2010, Transformers 3 took over sections of downtown Chicago. Closing streets, setting off explosions and having fake gun battles with semi-automatic weapons. If you have never been to a movie set before, here is your chance, follow Chris Pritchard as he takes you behind the scenes.
We think that photographers make great videographers and so we love sharing videos by 500px members with you. Last time we featured BTS of a fashion shoot with Giuseppe Circhetta, take a look.

Pulse is part of what makes 500px so magical. We built the Pulse algorithm nearly 3 years ago as one of the core features of 500px. It’s designed to help determine which photos are the most popular and the fastest upcoming and it has helped us build the world’s greatest photography community.
When Pulse was created, 500px was a relatively small community of photographers. In the past few years we've been lucky to experience huge growth in our community and in the number of photos being shared. This rapid growth has led to us outgrowing the capabilities of our current Pulse algorithm. Today we're excited to announce Pulse 2.0.
Our mission at 500px has always been to put photos first. Pulse 2.0 is better than ever at discovering the greatest new photos and sharing them with the community. It’s so advanced, responsive and intelligent that we’ve removed the ‘I don’t like this photo’ button while still ensuring the best photos of the day rise to Upcoming and Popular.
We at 500px are all really excited about this. Pulse 2.0 is going to bring incredible photography to the public eye that otherwise may have gone unnoticed. Our developers have been working for months to design and implement Pulse 2.0, so on behalf of the entire team and community, I would like to thank them for their hard work.
Update: We enabled Pulse 2.0 on July 3rd. It is now fully enabled and working its magic! If you have any questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Now everyone has a camera in their pocket — their phone. In good hands and with a bit of practice your phone camera can take incredible photos. Just stick to the never changing recipe for good photography: careful composing, good light, balanced post processing, interesting subject matter and let lucky accidents happen. That sudden sun flare, water drop or bad weather could change your photo for better or worse.
Phone photography is not without its limitations, especially when it comes to printing. But, you don’t need to miss an opportunity of a great shot either. Just take out your phone, adjust composition and click. Who knows, maybe the same image will inspire you later or secure your next job through Instagram or Twitter. Kevin Russ is a testament to a phone photography success story, you can read about it here.
Have you been thinking of trying out phone photography? Here are some great apps that can help you out with enhancing your images: VSCO Cam, Pix, Snapseed, Fhotoroom and Pixlr Express. Let us know which app is your favourite in the comments below & share your phone photos with us.
Thanks for reading!
