From National Geographic:
Look up at the moon on June 20, and you may be witnessing something that has not been seen in decades. That night, depending on your local time zone, the full moon will rise on the same day as the June solstice for the first time since 1948.

According to a study published by the American Association for the Advancement of Science, approximately 80% of those in North America live in ares where the Milky Way is no longer visible.
 
From ScienceAdvances.com:
We found that about 83% of the world’s population and more than 99% of the U.S. and European populations live under light-polluted skies (that is, where artificial sky brightness at the zenith is >14 µcd/m2). Due to light pollution, the Milky Way is not visible to more than one-third of humanity, including 60% of Europeans and nearly 80% of North Americans. Moreover, 23% of the world’s land surfaces between 75°N and 60°S, 88% of Europe, and almost half of the United States experience light-polluted nights.
 
The countries with the populations least affected by light pollution are Chad, Central African Republic, and Madagascar, with more than three-quarters of their inhabitants living under pristine sky conditions. The countries and territories with the largest nonpolluted areas are Greenland (only 0.12% of its area does not have pristine skies), Central African Republic (0.29%), Niue (0.45%), Somalia (1.2%), and Mauritania (1.4%).
 
On the other side, the most light-polluted country is Singapore, where the entire population lives under skies so bright that the eye cannot fully dark-adapt to night vision. Other populations experiencing this level of light pollution are Kuwait (98%), Qatar (97%), United Arab Emirates (93%), Saudi Arabia (83%), South Korea (66%), Israel (61%), Argentina (58%), Libya (53%), and Trinidad and Tobago (50%); all of these countries have more than half of their inhabitants living under extremely bright skies.

From Cokin:
 
The dark side has never been so attractive.
 
Hampstead, MD — June 14, 2016 — Only a few months after having introduced NUANCES Full ND filters – the best Neutral Density filters available, Cokin is proud to announce NUANCES Graduated Neutral Density (GND) filters.
 
Cokin states that their biggest challenge has been to adapt their coating technology to make it graduated. A nano-metallic alloy is gradually applied on both sides of a highly resistant tempered Schott Glass B270, renowned for its high transmittance and low reflection. The result is stunning neutrality, completely free of infrared pollution. Multiple NUANCES filters (GND or Full) can be stacked without color cast.
 
NUANCES GND filters are dedicated to landscape photography. When the dynamic range of film or the sensor is too narrow, they allow a balanced brightness between two parts of an image by efficiently keeping details in overly-bright part of a scene. GND filters effect cannot be reproduced in post-processing, where clipping is hard to recover. The transition between the dark and light areas is soft, making it easier to use in most situations.
 
NUANCES GND filters are designed to fit Cokin’s range of CREATIVE filter-holders, from M to XL sizes. They can be combined with other filters from the CREATIVE Filter System range for unlimited creativity. L and XL sizes to begin shipping in late June with M sizes to ship in late July.
 
B&H carries the Cokin NUANCES line of ND filters.

From Canon Professional Services:
British photographer Mark Lloyd works in the specialised world of sailing and over the last 15 years has won himself a reputation for exceptional action images of all manner of watery pursuits. His latest assignment, to photograph the America’s Cup catamarans as they ‘fly’ across the race course, is being made infinitely easier thanks to the EOS-1D X Mark II, as he explains to CPN Editor David Corfield...

Image quality results from the Canon EOS 5Ds R and Canon EOS 7D Mark II have been added to the Canon EF 14mm f/2.8L II USM Lens Review.
 
The 14 L II was Canon's widest rectilinear lens until the Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L USM Lens came along. Interesting comparison: Canon EF 14mm L II vs. 11-24mm L at 14mm f/4.
 
What other 14 L II comparisons do you like?

From the Canon Digital Learning Center:
I used to consider myself a “natural light” photographer and I got really good at controlling the light that was provided to me to make beautiful portraits. Speedlites were somewhat of a mystery to me for some reason because while using TTL (through-the-lens flash metering), I never knew exactly how much light I was putting on my subject. For some reason, that was important to me, most likely because I learned on manual flash units that had three settings . . . 50 watt seconds, 100 watt seconds and 200 watt seconds. Anyway, once the 600EX-RT was released back in early 2012, a whole new world of lighting control opened up to me. I love these Speedlites for a few reasons:
 
  1. I have the reliability of radio transmission from camera to off camera Speedlites.
  2. TTL automatic flash is very accurate, more so than it’s ever been.
  3. With this system I had complete control over all units in up to five different groups with the ability of having some flashes in E-TTL and others in manual.
I’m absolutely a Speedlite guy because they are so darned reliable and portable.
 
While on a recent trip to ShutterFest, a terrific photography conference in St. Louis each Spring, I taught a class entitled Great light Anywhere, Anytime with Speedlites. The goal of the class was to give students more confidence, something I didn’t have until 2012 when this Speedlite made its debut!
 
During the class we made some terrific images of our model, Anna Elizabeth Truett, and I’d like to share some of them by walking you through the progression of how the final portrait was created . . . all with Speedlites.
