Photographer Jeroen Nieuwhuis is one of the creatives behind New Day studio and has been shooting since he was 11 years old. Back then, he used to do skateboarding photography. He recently travelled to Cuba for a specific documentary project that he posted on Behance (and called it People of Cuba). Jeroen tells us that he finds it very important to do personal projects like this aside from his commercial work.

With the help fo a guide, he gained the trust of the locals and was truly interested at the fact that these folks are living 50 years back in time on minimal recourses and income.

Photographers Christoffer Rosenfeldt and Kevin Goss-Ross teamed up recently at the Roskilde Festival in Denmark.They were commissioned to create portraits of the people there–but these aren’t your typical festival portraits. The duo collaborated to create photos that tell a story and also help to illustrate who the people are. While doing this, they created some technical masterpieces.

And according to Kevin, it helps if you’re just a bit drunk.

Photographers have always tried to ensure that the theft of their images don’t get stolen. When it does, there is often a giant mountain made out of a molehill thanks in part to our current trends in online culture. And most recently, photographers have been up in arms about contracts from musicians. If you haven’t heard about the Taylor Swift incident starting with Apple then trickling down to the photographers who photograph her, then you’ve probably been living under a rock.

And yet, there is a much more silent form of theft that has been happening for years.

Right now, there are loads of Canon 70D bundles available with a printer. Plus, there are refurbished Nikon camera deals.

Still going on: if you purchase a Fujifilm X Pro 1, 35mm f1.4 and 18mm f2, you can get the entire package for $948 with free shipping. Indeed, we still use the Fujifilm X Pro 1 for our testing and the camera’s quality is still very top notch.

Not interested? There is still a dead where we found number of lenses from pretty much every manufacturer and mount for under $200. Go take a look.

We’ve also found discounts of at least 10% on over 4,000 camera lenses over at Amazon, some at over 25% off, 50% off, and 70% off.

Still in effect, here are some that are 25% off, but there are also lots of wide angle lens options available.Plus, there are discounts on 50mm f1.8 (nifty 50) lenses.

More discounts are after the jump.

“When I first visited Calcutta and flower market, I was fascinated by the flower sellers and the way they wear the flowers on – as big robes.” says photographer Ken Herrmann.  “Also the way they treat the flowers, cuddling them and caress them, I think was interesting.”

That’s part of the idea of Ken’s Flower Man project. Ken is the man behind Hollywood Characters, and has an eye for creating telling and revealing portraits.

In an email, Ken tells us that he was inspired to convey the contrast between the masculine yet “dirty” flower sellers and the colorful sacred flowers they sell. To do this, he worked with a simple and neutral background. Ken’s aim was to highlight the aesthetics among chaos and poverty in Calcutta. “I love that you can still find an authentic, old-school version of an Indian city here. In a way, time has been made, the old Victorian buildings have been preserved and you can still experience the human-pulled rickshaws. The city lives in many ways up to its characteristics – city of joy.”

The Flower Man portraits are after the jump.
