Article and images - © John Neel Continued from Part 2 The image above, shows the approximate area covered by the Sony NEX APS size sensor in comparison to the final image capture. The RhinoCam is designed to approximate a 645 medium format digital capture. The secret is that the lens is in a fixed position. The lens itself does not move during the capture. Instead, the digital camera body moves relative to the image circle projected by the lens. To shoot the image, eight image frames are shot...

Adobe have announced that the next version of Photoshop will be Photoshop CC, not CS7. With the emphasis switched to the Cloud from last year, CS6 marks the end of an era for Adobe. In Future Photoshop will be cloud only with constant updating, rather than a new version every 18-24 months. This means that new features will be available as soon as the work on them is complete, rather than waiting for the cycle to come around again.  To sweeten the deal, owners of CS3, CS4, CS5 and CS6 can get a...

To celebrate the release of my book later this month, Surreal Photography: Creating the Impossible, it seemed entirely appropriate that this month's competition theme should be surreal. We're not picky about the type of surrealism you want to enter: it can be a battle of gods and monsters from a universe undiscovered, painstakngly composited in Photoshop; or you can submit an infrared picture that puts us at five degrees to the world we know. You can use Photoshop manipulation, in-camera...
