The Power of Photography Education

The power of photography is something that cannot be denied. Controversial, shocking, mind-blowing, eye-opening, photography can take on many forms. At NYIP, we're always looking for new ways that photography can help the world.

Last week, we were proud to announce a partnership with a group called Keeping the Smile who are using photography to heal.

Keeping the Smile is a project based in Nairobi, Kenya. Their work, to teach photography to children battling cancer at Kenyatta National Hospital as a part of their ongoing treatment. In their first year, they've already worked with 36 children, and they are starting to get more funding from outside sources as we speak.

The project was started and is being run by a man named Boniface Muthoni. We had the pleasure of meeting with Boniface in our offices here in Manhattan a couple of weeks ago, when we signed up for our Complete Course in Professional Photography.

Boniface has promised to keep us up to date on his progress and the growth of his project. We hope to share some of their stories with you here.

You can read the full Keeping the Smile press release about this new partnership on our website, here.

Polaroid joins the Social Media Party 



Polaroid is set to launch its latest addition to the digital camera family in the form of the Z2300. The camera is being hailed as "the ultimate social media machine," with the capability to instantly capture and easily upload images to any social media platform. The nifty and compact camera, which is available in either black or white, also comes equipped with an integrated, ZINK® Tech printer. The camera's retail price will be $159.99 and it will hit the shelves August 15th.
 
This is not the first time we have blogged about Polaroid's evolution over the years (read our article, So Where Will Polaroid Be Five Years From Now?), but we continue to be impressed by the company's ability to constantly reinvent itself. Here at NYIP we are always monitoring new trends and technological developments in the realm of photography to share with our readers. What do you think of the Z2300? Have the pioneers of instant photography redefined themselves again for the digital age?

Friends bet a retired police officer that he couldn't photograph a gun pellet flying through a drop of falling water. Well, this amateur photographer used the laws of physics and some really fast timer speeds to take several stunning photos. Photo: Dennis Havel / newsteam
