Along the way to the moon on Dec. 7, 1972, the crew of Apollo 17 had a beautiful view of Earth that would give us one of the most popular photographs to come out of NASA. One of their objectives was to take photographs of the lunar surface for mapping and scientific purposes. They also needed a record of what they did both on the moon and in flight. Earth-gazing was not on the list of photographic activities, but that perfect view was too good to pass up.
The Phoblographer and MeFOTO are INCREDIBLY excited to announce our latest giveaway together. We’re giving away a Sony A7 kit and a MeFOTO Roadtrip tripod in any color of your choice. We’ve got a really simple contest and one lucky winner will have an even brighter holiday season with these two fabulous products in their hands.

In recent years, the Lomography company has been trying to do a couple of things to appeal more to the digital crowd. There was the scanner, the Petzval lens, and now there is a set of lenses for Micro Four Thirds cameras. No, these aren’t made from glass. In fact, they’re as quirky as most other Lomography products that you’ll get your hands on. But we’d be doing a great injustice to the products if we said that they aren’t fun. In fact, these lenses push the creative edge more than any other Micro Four Thirds product out there.
Photographer Ashley Eubanks recently shot a very special engagement session. Her best friend came to her with the idea to shoot it with a Breaking Bad theme. Obviously, it was based on the hit TV series that recently showed its final episode. “We chose the scenes by looking at promo photos from the show and got inspiration from those!” says Eubanks. “We imitated some of the poses and whatnot. We just kind of went with it and did what felt right!”
More is on Ashley’s blog, but there are other photos after the jump.

We first read about Dan Zvereff on Japan Camera Hunter, we were captivated by his images and his use of Kodak Aerochrome. The famous infrared film was designed for military applications and what it did was turn all greens into a shade of purple. But that’s just the short explanation, and we’ve got a more detailed and in depth analysis here.
Aerochrome was at the heart of Dan’s project called Introspective, where he travelled around the world for three months on a quest of self-discovery. Along the way he shot various landscapes and scenes in the Arctic, Europe, and Africa.
We talked to Dan a bit about the project and his incredible images.
Citing a recent spate of copyright infringement cases, the photography collective X-Fotos has successful created a registry for copyright infringers. The photographers combed through archives of legal cases to compile a list of names that they retroactively registered, and for any future cases, the infringers will have to add their names to the list. X-Fotos hopes that the registry will stem the rising tide of infringement cases.
