It’s great to watch videos made by photographers as you can witness photographs literally come to life. Last time we shared with you ”I Soar” by Steven Dempsey, collaborative art project based on a touching poem by Diane Ward. Today’s featured video is a tale of Istanbul by Juan Carlos Diaz. Travel with us to the beautiful city of Istanbul and experience its honestly filmed by Juan during his one week’s travel.
In our opinion photographers make great videographers. Do you have a video that you’d like to share or you're in a process of planning a shoot? Let us know! Email us firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re always open to your ideas and collaborations, and would love to feature you on our blog :)

Wednesday we presented 500px iPhone app to the world and held a live Q&A the same day with a panel of 500px team members who worked on the app. We were broadcasting live to answer your questions about the new app. At the hangout we had Eric Akaoka, Adam Shutsa, Ash Furrow and Paddy O’Brien to answer your questions, which they received via Twitter, Facebook, G+ and comments on YouTube.
Tune in to the recorded episode of the hangout and find out answers to questions like: “What was the thinking behind design?”, “What about ISO500?”, “Challenges when iPhone 5 came out?”, “What makes this app different from the rest?”, “Did you use open source code?”, “Why is there no uploading?” etc.
To download the iPhone app visit iTunes store or our iPhone app page. Thank you for making 500px the #3 free photo app in the App Store, right after YouTube and Instagram. If you like the app, please visit the iTunes page to leave a review and help spread the word.
Right after app's release Mark Shannon wrote a great review of his first experience with 500px iPhone app. His review includes screen shots of the tour and step by step interaction with the app. If you’re new to the app or want to get a feel of it before downloading check out Mark’s article.
