You know, the world takes on a completely different perspective when you're taking photographs at an incredibly high frame rate. The video below is by Tom Guilmette and it truly is stunning.
 
Florence in Italy is one of the most beautiful Cities I've had the pleasure of visiting and what follows is a brief photo journal of the City, and surrounding areas. On this trip I carried with me my robust, yet somewhat aged, Canon EOS 20D digital camera supported by the impressive Canon 15mm Fisheye lens.
 
And here's another photography competition to try out for. Life Framer are running the competition, asking for photographs to be submitted along the theme of 'An instant'. Winners get their photos printed framed and exhibited in a London gallery and win $400, so can't all be bad eh.
 

The San Francisco International Photography Exhibition is still accepting submissions up until May 8th 2013, and it's open to anyone and everyone

There's some pretty great monetary prizes if you win, namely, $3,000, $2,000 and $1,000 for first, second and third place respectively. This sounds like a great opportunity to sift through your photography portfolio and dig out some of your best!


 

Now, how do you get to take photos of a Lion without getting eaten or by using a massive 800mm super telephoto zoom lens? You use a remote control car with a camera attached of course, cutely named Beetlecam.

Will Burrard-Lucas and his brother Matt came up with this great idea and have undertaken several trips to Africa to take photos of Lions, elephants, buffalos, you name it!


 
Mamalapuram or Mahabalipuram is located in southern India; it is home to many historic monuments which date back as far as the 7th Century AD. Here is a brief account of my visit.
 
I was fortunate enough to visit the London 2012 Olympics during the athletics, so thought it would be an ideal opportunity to try out the Canon 50D (thanks James). I've previously tested out both the Canon 40D, and Canon 60D, so putting the 50D through its paces seemed like a good idea! I took with me my trusty Sigma 70-300mm telephoto lens, as well as the Canon 17-40mm F4L for any wide-angle shots.
