Weekly design inspiration: Photography

After the mania caused by last week’s Eurovision themed design inspiration, we’ve gone for a more serious theme this week. A nice general one, we’ve been sharing our favourite pieces of work from the field of photography. Here’s our roundup, featuring a virtual cave tour, yellow trees and a man being chased by a bear…

Taking the perfect shot

We’re starting off by looking at just what photographers have to go through to capture that perfect shot. It turns out these pros have all kinds of athletic ability and apparently no fear. Why anyone would suspend themselves from a building or risk being chased by a bear (we still aren’t sure if that picture is real) in the name of photography is something we’ll never understand!

David Keochkerian’s infrared photos

Now, some landscapes. We were all massively impressed with these stunning scenic shots from photographer David Keochkerian, in particular his infrared series. We’ve picked out our favourite three pictures from his online portfolio, but we’d strongly recommend you to all take a look at the rest of his work.

Double exposure photographs

We really like the effect created from double exposure photographs and have picked out a couple of lovely examples to share with you. We love the striking effect in these images and the combination of textures with strong shapes.

Bernhard Lang photography

Now, to the 2015 Sony World Photography Travel Awards, where we’ve been admiring the work of this year’s winner – Bernhard Lang. The German photographer was a deserved winner for his stunning patterned aerial shots which we just can’t get enough of. Our favourites are the parasol beach shots, but we also love the car park series.

360 degree cave panoramas

We’re finishing off this week in Vietnam, in the Son Doong cave, and showing our appreciation of this Google maps style 360o image. Courtesy of National Geographic, this interactive image allows you to venture around the various chambers of the Son Doong (which is large enough to comfortably house a Boeing 747 airplane). Who needs to catch an eleven hour flight to visit this place when we can get it up on our Apple TV and enjoy the view from the comfort of our 70s themed meeting room?
