17-Year-Old Climbed NYC’s Tallest Building And Took These Incredible Photos

Back in September of 2012, it was reported that 432 Park Avenue, upon its completion, would bethe tallest building in New York City.

Over the last couple years, the building has become one of the most talked about structures in New York City, next to the Freedom Tower.

It has also become closer and closer to being finished, which means some of the wealthiest people will be able to purchase the $85 million penthouse.

The rest of us will just have to admire it from below Unless we’re willing to take matters into our own hands, like Demind Lebedev. The 17-year-old has had Instagram buzzing ever since he climbed to the top of the building.

That’s right, despite the construction site being strictly off-limits to the public, Lebedev decided to see for himself what an $85 million view looks like.

According to Gizmodo, the 17-year-old daredevil took a break from his usual photography to capture something a bit more breathtaking.

Check out the photos Lebedev posted on Instagram while daringly standing approximately 1,379 feet above NYC!

How Wave Photographer Clark Little Got His Big Break

Getting tossed around by shorebreak and slammed into the sand day after day is a rough go; Clark Little wouldn’t have it any other way. In fact, for the North Shore local, it’s all in a good day’s work. But the Waimea addict didn’t grow up snapping shots with his father’s camera like so many photographers do. He instead set out to capture his longtime stomping grounds when his wife came home with a framed photograph of Waimea shorebreak, an image he figured he would be able to easily replicate.

Having never owned a camera, he threw a cheap waterproof casing over a cheaper point-and-shoot and headed out to the beach. Since that first attempt, Clark has not only emulated his wife’s purchased wall art, but – with a gallery in Haleiwa and international recognition – has become a heavily respected fixture of wave photography.

Food Photographed With An Electron Microscope by Caren Alpert

If your hobbies range from food to art to science, they might seem incompatible at first not to Caren Alpert, though, who combined all of those and presented some stunning microscopic food photographs. The series, called Terra Cibus, were created with an electron microscope, which helps to reveal the side of our food we don’t normally get to see.

A San Francisco-based fine art and commercial photographer says that she was first attracted to microscope photographs because of their mystery and familiarity at the same time. This medium deconstructs, abstracts, and reveals the ordinary in a riveting way, explains Caren and goes on to say that eventually she started seeing both the food and the consumers as a part of a larger ecosystem. [Read more]

To be more specific, the artist used the scanning electron microscope (SEM). It is a type of electron microscope that produces images of a sample by scanning it with a focused beam of electrons. The electrons interact with electrons in the sample, producing various signals that can be detected and that contain information about the sample’s surface topography and composition. The range of magnification may range from 30x to as high as 500,000x.

Caren is currently having an exhibition of her work at the Citigroup Center in New York which will be available till November 31st.

Ferguson exposed racial tensions in St. Louis to the rest of the world. But discrimination in Missouri goes much deeper: St. Louis County’s unique political geography, heightened class-consciousness, and the regrettable history that created both have made the St. Louis suburbs especially prone to a Ferguson-like eruption.

Beginner DSLR Photography basics: Aperture and depth of field guide

Beginner guide to aperture and Depth of Field.

If you want to get a blurry background, or take a landscape that is sharp from to back, then watch this video.

This video tries to explain the basic principle of aperture.

What it is.

What it does

How its used

The effect it has.

Different lenses have different apertures, so please bear that in mind, you lens may not go to f/1.4 or f/22.

Also, I havent talked about diffraction in this video. This is when a lens starts to loose sharpness due to a narrow aperture. This is often seen on lenses at f/11 to f/16 or above, so try not use any higher than f/16 if you can help it.
