Photography Blog Roundup: Our 10 Favorite Photography Posts From the Week of 2/17-21


It may have been a short week for some with President's Day, but there was still plenty of action in the photography community. Here at PPA, we're devoted to always helping you be more as a professional photographer. With that in mind, here are 10 photography blogs from the week of Feb. 17-21, 2014, that we hope will inspire you.

1). Not Your Typical Time Lapse
Rick Mereki and his team have been creating inspiring videos for some time now. Their award-winning shorts from two years ago, Eat, Learn and Move are still making the rounds on social media. But last month's Mirrorlapse is definitely the trippiest thus far, literally flipping images on top of themselves and moving them through time. It's exhausting! Follow the guys on Facebook and see what they come up with next!

2). Canon vs. Nikon: So What's the Conclusion?
Ah yes, the ultimate argument! The folks over at were brave enough to take it on. You might be surprised by their findings! Read the results.

3). NYC Ballet Enlists Street Art Photographer
What do you do when you're trying to draw new patrons to your ballet theater? Hit the streets! It helps if an award-winning street photographer is out there when you do! The David H. Koch Theater gave French photographer, JR, they keys to their ballet and the results are pretty amazing. Click through to read more and view a behind-the-scenes video. The project certainly isn't a first for JR. In fact, he's done it all over the world. Check out his TED prize-winning talk from 2011 to see what drives him!

6). The Only Thing More Unbelievable Than These Photos Is How They Were Taken
We're sensing a trend lately of climbing really, really tall buildings (generally illegally) in the quest for the perfect shot. We certainly don't advocate it for our thrill-seeking members, but we can sure admire the results of this young woman's soaring passion! Check out these images and don't miss the video: you'll see this adventure photographer perched hundreds of feet up at the top of the Chrysler Building in New York.
