we’re bolstered by the pro photographers who keep adapting to the current climate with positivity

This time of year is often a limbo period for photographers. While we might be looking forward to the promise of colourful spring landscapes, longer days and gorgeous light, we’re presented with a more bleak reality of winter scenes for months to come.

rankin and samsung collab for s21 ultra

Rankin tested the photography features of the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G Plus smartphone, including 8K shooting at 24fps, Video Snap to pull hi-res stills from video footage, and Director’s View to see, switch and select the best shot from each camera.
