It's now 50 years since we went to the moon with the first moon landing by the The United States' Apollo 11 happening on 20 July 1969. And with NASA recently announcing that it plans to land on the moon again by 2024, we thought what better way to celebrate than with a collection of some of the best photos of the moon in all its glory for you to enjoy. 

Enjoy the range of inspiring images of our moon in all shapes and sizes:

Andrew Hall uses ferrofluid and sound waves to create captivating, abstract photography​​​​​​

Photographer Andrew Hall experiments with how liquids and gases interact with each other, using other influences such as sound waves and magnetic fields to produce abstract photographs.

To create the effect he pours ferrofluid, which has nanoparticles of magnetic material suspended in it, into a container three millimetres deep. Then he applies a magnetic field underneath while adding drops of pigment, such as paint or ink, which mixes with the fluid. "If the magnet's close, the fluid tends to go into spikes, but as I move it away, it morphs into the beautiful organic pattern you see here," Hall says.

In another series, Shooting Music, he plays with the same idea but the liquid, usually water, morphs in response to sound waves played through a speaker. Sometimes the music will be melodic; other times Hall will play a single, humming tone, causing the liquid to vibrate. "It kind of dances with the music. It's staggering stuf ... Read more »

Summer sunlight brings beautiful colours, atmospheric skies and beautiful landscapes, but it also brings challenges: harsh shadows under the eyes, squinting, endless, samey sunsets. Generally the most beautiful summer light is to be found early morning and late evening, during the hour after sunrise and before sunset. At other times of the day, the best light is to be found in the shadows, especially if the sun is beating ... Read more »

Jupiter’s sandy swirls and blue-hued poles are visible even from Earth. But the Juno spacecraft’s crisp and colorful images begin as warped and dull raw files. The fantastic finished visuals are the result of enthusiastic amateur astronomers, software developers, and artists communicating over message boards. They work together to turn the raw images into accurate art for the space-loving public. On today’s  ... Read more »

THE WINNERS OF the Sony World Photography Awards 2018 have been announced.

The coveted Photographer of the Year title went to British photographer Alys Tomlinson, who won $25,000 for her series, Ex-Voto. The series captures the idea of pilgrimage through the landscapes of sites in France, Ireland and Poland and in still-life images of offerings that have been made at these locations.

In Ireland, Tomlinson shot at Ballyvourney,  a Gaeltacht village in southwest Co Cork considered to be a pilgrimage site. Near the village is a stone slab inscribed with a Maltese Cross with a figure, believed to be a pilgrim, above it.

How to Find Your Style as a Photographer

When I was starting in photography, I kept hearing peers and educators talking about their photographic style. I was totally lost. I had no idea what my style was, because as desperate as I was to define it, I hadn't yet discovered it. Discovered is the wrong word. My style wasn't yet.

In a lot of ways, I may be the last person qualified to talk about style. I wear the same thing every day: black v-neck, jeans, black shoes, hair in a ponytail, and an ivy cap. For events where I need to look more professional, I throw a suit jacket on top, and people are genuinely impressed that I dressed up (I love working in a field where you can get away with thi ...
