There is so much to learn about photography and we want to share 500px photographers’ pro tips and tricks with you. Last time we featured post-processing secrets of “Waiting for hair cut” photograph.
In this article Budapest-based photographer Ildiko Neer shares with us the details behind her photograph “Endless passion”, explaining how she created this photograph using mirroring technique.
I think that this kind of post-processing is a type of magician's trick. It is quiet simple and looks magical. You just need a row of trees and then in a post-processing program to mirror the image you’ve shot. Next step would be to layer the mirrored image over the original shot and to erase what you don't need. Final step is to tone, colour correct and retouch any parts you think are missing or distracting.
I followed these steps to achieve the final image:

It’s great to watch videos filmed by photographers as you can witness photographs literally come to life. Last time we shared with you ”Istanbul, the Pearl of the Bosphorus” by Juan Carlos Diaz, a tribute to the incredible city.
Today’s featured video is “Low Tide - The Seaweed Farmers of Nusa Lembongan”. This film was shot and edited by Free Mindflow in an observational documentary style, in order to enable the viewer with a sense of reality when witnessing the most significant and particular part of the island’s inhabitants lives.
This short film is part of the first episode of Where’s Paradise? project focusing on the island of Nusa Lembongan, 20km South East of Bali. The series puts side by side the western idea of paradise that conjures images of small tropical islands with white sandy beaches and coconut groves and the actual lives of the actual people that live in these often remote places. The first episode also features a photo set viewable on 500px.com/freemindflow.
