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

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.

Spectral-volumetric compressed ultrafast photography simultaneously captures 5D information in a single snapshot — ScienceDaily

Information-rich optical imaging can provide multidimensional information to enable observation and analysis of a detected target, contributing insights into mysterious and unknown worlds. With its ability to capture dynamic scenes on picosecond — and even femtosecond — timescales, ultrafast multidimensional optical imaging has important applications in the detection of the ultrafast phenomena in physics, chemistry, and biology.

While pump-probe-based ultrafast imaging can acquire high-resolution multidimensional information, it cannot adequately capture unstable or irreversible transient scenes. Fortunately, compressed ultrafast photography (CUP), based on compressed sensing and streak imaging, surpasses traditional pump-probe-based ultrafast imaging. CUP has attracted broad attention due to its
