Whale Nation

Published by Diana Tula · June 27th 2013

From space, the planet is blue. From space the planet is the territory not of humans but of the whales, a “Whale Nation”. Every year up to 2,000 animals beach themselves, stranded ashore most of them die from dehydration. The most frequently involved animals are whales. This short video trailer by Javier Delgado Esteban shows such a whale stranded. Let’s help the whale nation together. If you’d like to help out the whales please spread awareness of beached animals.

We think that photographers make great videographers and so we love sharing videos by 500px members with you. Last time we featured Transformers 3 behind the scenes. For more videos browse the blog and let us know if you’d like to be featured, email blog@500px.com or leave a comment below, thanks.

Darren Pearson

Published by Diana Tula · June 25th 2013

Darren Pearson is Los Angeles resident, where he works as a full time illustrator by day. By night, he explores the landscapes of California in search of the perfect scene for one of his life-sized light sculptures. These light sculptures are created through long exposure photography (the same technique commonly used to write a name with a sparkler or capture car trails at night).

Pearson makes complex light-effect photographs, none of which are photoshopped. We were entranced by his fun photos of skeletons, who seem so animated and involved in the american night life. Please enjoy Pearson’s skeletons and other wonderful light creations.

Have you ever wanted to try out light painting photography? Let us know in the comments below and we could ask Darren Pearson for an awesome tutorial. If you’d like to add Darren to friends and follow his future uploads visit his 500px page. There you can also see the rest of his portfolio and get in touch, don’t be shy and say hi.

Our blog is a place to promote 500px photographers and their brilliant photos. Every week we want to introduce you to new and up-and-coming photographers, whom you may have not discovered yet. If you’d like to be featured on our blog or nominate your favourite photographer email blog@500px.com.
