Listen to Yvonne Ding, both a flight attendant and a street photographer as she shares a story of an acquaintance that broke and humbled her heart. This video was recorded for the 11/11/11 project, a worldwide event where people from all over the world were asked to go out and capture a part of their day using film, photography, music, sound and text. Since then all submissions were compiled into a film, which can be viewed at a local screening world-wide every November 11th.
Last time we featured “A Travelling iPhonographer”, a short documentary featuring well-known iPhonographer Kevin Russ. For more videos browse the blog and let us know if you’d like to be featured. Send in links to your videos to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re always open to fresh and exiting content and ideas.
Meet Bill Hornstein, an art director from Los Angeles, USA and hobbyist photographer whose work ranges from portrait to landscape photography. Looking at his work the immediate reaction is that you either went mad or that Bill travelled to an alternate reality for some cool snapshots.
Later it may dawn on you that these photos are actually from Burning Man, a world famous event that happens annually in Black Rock Desert, northern Nevada that brings people together for a week to live in community where money has no value. Captivated by Bill Hornstein’s photos of the event we'd like to share the Burning Man awesomeness with you, enjoy!
To get to know Bill Hornstein’s work better visit his 500px page, there you can follow his future photo uploads and add Bill to friends.

Last time we shared a light painting tutorial it was “How to paint a ball of light” by Richard Steinberger. In that tutorial Richard shares his light painting technique using a daylight-balanced LEDs on a 5-foot pole, specific to painting an orb of light.
The technique we’ll be sharing today by Steven Biseker is more extreme and dangerous as it requires handling fire; at the same time it is the most popular method of light painting out there especially when it comes to creating orbs of light. In this tutorial Steven will share with you his tips & tricks, explaining how he got three different light painting photos using the same method.
Do you have photos taken using this technique? Upload them to 500px and share links in the comments below, we'd love to see your results :)
Let’s share your skills and educate those new to photography. If you have a tutorial you’d like to share, be it in shooting, post production or tips for getting your work out there please get in touch, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for reading!
