Dramatic Outdoor Photography by Austin Trigg

The great outdoors are filled with jaw dropping scenarios, and it's really amazing when a talented photographer gets to capture some of these beautiful scenes. Austin Trigg, an American from California, labels himself as a "Outdoor Lifestyle Photographer". Well, that's one hell of a job. Here you can see a brief selection of his superb pieces, showing us how beautiful an outdoor adventure can be. In Ferris Bueller's words: "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while you could miss it". I hope these inspire you to go on an adventure, explore nature whenever you get the chance. There are sunsets to be felt, woods to be crossed, cliffs to be appreciated (wow, I'm really inspired right now). For more of Austin's work, please visit his portfolio at Behance... there are many more images there. I hope you enjoy these as much as I did! Cheers. ;)

The Beauty of the Spring

The Beauty of the Spring

Spring season is here, and as the days get longer the weather gets warmer the nature comes back to life. Today I wanted to selected some beautiful photos that reflect the nature in the Spring. Enjoy! Spring and "springtime" refer to the season, and also to ideas of rebirth, rejuvenation, renewal, resurrection and regrowth. Subtropical and tropical areas have climates better described in terms of other seasons, e.g. dry or wet, monsoonal or cyclonic. Often the cultures have locally defined names for seasons which have little equivalence to the terms originating in Europe.

Terrific Cabins in the Wild Photography

Terrific Cabins in the Wild Photography

If you have ever been to the wild or countryside you've probably noticed that often times you'll find a little wood cabin. Although there are still cabins in the wild being used, these are the signature of how our ancestors lived, and if find it pretty cool. Just being there in the wild, with the sounds of nature is a true liberating experience (if you're not in a horror movie, of course). The city rush seems long gone and time stands still. These photographers captured perfectly moments like these in these amazing picture. For more of their work visit their portfolios simply by clicking each image. They'll definitely appreciate it. Also, if you got your own cabin photographs, share it with us! I hope you enjoy these.

Fascinating Cave Photography

Caves are fantastic, mysterious places... maybe as mysterious as the depths of the oceans, full weird creatures and breathtaking landscapes. These are some fantastic photographs showing that.

Eerie Nature Photography by Jürgen Heckel

I've been searching like a mad man for a photographer to capture my wedding. It takes patience and an eye for details, because when it comes a big event like that you just want the best person for the job. And even the most not-related pictures count when you do that kind of search... like nature photography. Jürgen Heckel takes some awesome photographs. I really dig the feel of these, eerie, with lost of depth of field and it's obvious he's effort to make trees look good, and he succeeded in his task. Too bad great photographers like him are not Brazilian. I gotta keep searching. Anyways, I hope you enjoy these, and don't forget to pay a visit to his Behance portfolio. Enjoy! Cheers. ;)

Baffling Earth Photography

Earth is a beautiful place, people. We live in a tiny rock that has plenty life, awesome nature, stunning colors, and most times we don't appreciate it at all, losing time complaining about insignificant little things. Whenever you get crazy about your routine, simply take a walk. Go on a trip. Get to know your city, your state. There's plenty beauty around you, and it just takes your will for you to see it all. These are a set of beautiful photographs to remind us how Earth is awesome, and that we're definitely blessed for living in such a place. These were taken by some seriously good photographers, and I really recommend you to visit their portfolio, by clicking each image, to check much more of their work. I hope you enjoy these!

Sound Design: Elements of Nature

Today I would like to introduce you to a very creative technique to create sounds from elements of nature and day to day objects. I will share with you a few really cool videos. The first one is from a japanese TV ad and what is interesting about this one is the way that the creators of this piece went all the way back to the very beginning of sound design to recreate a classic from J.S Bach. Touchwood - NttdoComo The second video was created by Julian Smith from http://juliansmith.tv and it is called Techno Jeep. The shooting took 7 hours and all sounds are from a Jeep. Julian Smith - Techno Jeep The next videos are from Diego Stocco http://diegostocco.com. Diego is a sound designer, composer and performer that creates eclectic musical experiences with custom built instruments and experimental recording techniques. He's one of the principal creative sound designers for the multi Award winning virtual instruments AtmosphereTM, StylusTM RMX and the new Power Synth Omnisphere®.

Impossible Vector Art by Human Nature 84

People always ask me If ever get bored of doing vectors and the answer is always "I can't". Why? Because, as most of you, I also got heroes on what I do and these guys are one of the main reasons I can't quit. Human Nature 84 is probably my favorite vector artist, not just because of his personal style, but because of the revolution his making on vector graphics. As me, you won't believe that every of this artworks bellow are all vector made, no mesh or blends used, just pure vector. Ok now, even If you're not a vector fan, you should defnitely check his Flickr or his Devianart to witness the evolution of this revolutionary artist, god bless him. The Process

Snowflakes Photography Inspiration

One of these days I was doing a search for images of nature on Flickr and DevianART and was really impressed with the photos I found of snowflakes. Snowflakes are agglomerates of frozen ice crystals falling through the atmosphere on Earth (Wikipedia). What really attracted me in the snowflakes is the fact that each has a unique, harmonic and almost perfectly symmetrical shape. It's for sure one of the most inspiring, different and beautiful source of inspiration found in nature. Hope you like it and after seeing this collection start to look more closely at all these beautiful forms that are out there in nature. rr rocketman Yani Ioannou Yani Ioannou Erica Marshall Erica Marshall Via Moi piper charlesimages charlesimages fizzix fwwidal fwwidal fwwidal fwwidal fwwidal fwwidal Megson schimmio52 All17 sindarelf candymax About the Author Hey buddies!

Photography Inspiration: Jellyfish

Jellyfish (also known as jellies or sea jellies or medusozoa) are free-swimming members of the phylum Cnidaria. Jellyfish are found in every ocean, from the surface to the deep sea. Jellyfish are composed of more than 90% water; most of their umbrella mass is a gelatinous material — the jelly — called mesoglea which is surrounded by two layers of epithelial cells which form the umbrella (top surface) and subumbrella (bottom surface) of the bell, or body (wikipedia). I know many of you must hate jellyfish because of its toxicity in some species, but it is undeniable the beauty of these animals. A mix of abstract shapes and symmetrical forms, there it is a living being that possesses one of the most interesting life cycles in the animal kingdom. I became very interested in the subject so I decided to look for good pictures that show the colors and textures of jellyfish.

Breathtaking Pictures of Africa

It definitely the most beautiful continent in our little planet... the wildest of them all, Africa is getting some attention thanks to this year's World Cup at South Africa, but we really hope that it gets more than just plain attention. We hope for major problems solving. We've seen for so long people dying in Africa from starvation, thirst, war, etc, that in today's world, we got used to these things... but we must remember that it could be me, you, your parents there, dying of these things. I don't know... just looking at Africa and enjoying its beauty just seems a little empty now. Those people need help. We need help. This world is agonizing. I'm sad now. ... ok... just lemme finish this: you should all visit these amazing, talented photographers for more great shots. They'll appreciate. I hope you enjoy these. And think about it.
