Exploring Ikuru Kuwajima’s ‘Tundra Kids’ photography series

Since the dawn of the millennium, the world has changed at a faster rate than any previous time in human history. Culturally, climatically and in just about every other guise, a sweeping global transition has been underway. However, the Russian Tundra seems so far-flung and impenetrable that its place in the global consciousness as the world’s last outpost of the past has wrongfully remained. 

It is a measure of our current interconnectedness and the binding ties of climate change that even the Tundra is a region in rapid transition. 

Moscow-based Japanese photographer, Ikuru Kuwajima, travelled to the far reaches of

Nikon Z50 and Z fc to get Laowa 9mm F2.8 ultra-wide prime lens

Laowa has announced it will be producing a Nikon Z version of its 9mm F2.8 APS-C prime lens which is already available in Sony E, Fujifilm X and Canon EF-M versions. It’s not a new lens, but the Nikon Z version is big news given the relative lack of lenses right now for these cameras.

The secrets to great long exposure photography

I remember the first time I saw an image captured using the long exposure photography technique. It blew me away. The skies were stretched across the sky and the water as soft as silk. How was it even possible?

Little did I know that this technique would become a game changer for me. Not only did learning this technique help me understand the fundamental camera settings, it helped develop my creative vision.

A decade later I’m still fascinated with long exposure photography. My approach has changed during the years but it’s still part of who I am.
