Canon Digital Learning Center Logo
From the Canon Digital Learning Center:
"This month, I [photographer Tyler Stableford] undertook a longstanding personal project: an attempt to create underwater fine art images of a beautiful swimmer arcing alongside enormous whale sharks. After a busy year of shooting, I’ve had a welling desire to create imagery that speaks to my deepest soul; and to forge a large-format print for my house.
 
The project is a co-creation with the swimmer model Ashley Mosher. I chose Ashley for the project as she is a former competitive swimmer (she competed in the U.S. Olympic trials) and has a beautiful grace that is only enhanced when she enters the water."

From the Carl Zeiss Lenses Youtube Channel:
 
Every two years Cologne hosts photokina, the world’s most important imaging trade fair. And from September 16 to 21, 2014, around 185,000 film and photography fans, from 160 countries, attended this year’s event by the Rhine. Many of them headed straight to ZEISS in hall 2.2, stand C-018, where they could talk with optics experts and experience close-up four new lenses that really whet your appetite for photography.
