Here are nine rules about basic photography composition from famed photographer Steve McCurry that will instantly make your pictures look better. You know some of them already — rule of thirds, etc — but it's nice to see them illustrated with great pictures and be reminded of the most important rule of all: that you can — and should — break them.
Two of the three toys above are not toys at all but rather printed pictures perfectly mimicking the detail and look of the other toy. It's a wonderful illusion, a can easily rolls over the first two objects (the printed pictures) and gets stopped by the third object (the actual toy). If you never saw the can roll over the pictures, you wouldn't even be able to tell the difference between the three objects.
It can be hard to take a good picture of something moving relatively fast, but it's really hard to take a good picture of a jet moving at 600-ish kilometres per hour through the sky.

Starting today, you can preview Flickr's new picture viewer, with a 25 per cent bigger picture that pushes the info bar off to the side. It's the latest addition to the full-site redesign from earlier this year.

Or at least that's what over-entitled whingers have been spouting on social media all afternoon. Here's why we have no right to be upset about not seeing the console today. Take a knee.
Watermarks are the annoying result of people stealing pictures — they're ugly, distracting and cheapen the art of photography. But it's a necessary evil! Or is it? Kip Praslowicz poked fun at the ugly watermarks ruining pictures these days by plastering them over famous photos. It's not a good look.
Nikon's latest camera gimmick is actually pretty clever. As smartphone manufacturers race to beef up their built-in cameras from five-megapixels to eight, to twelve and so-on, Nikon thought it prudent to flip the game on its head: it already has a 16-megapixel compact camera, so why not put Android on it and beat phone makers to the punch? Introducing, the Android-powered, Nikon S800c digital camera. Is it nifty or just plain bad?
