Jamie Heiden is a photographer first. She gets the most satisfaction out of taking a picture. But when she sits down at her computer, the beginnings unfold. Most of her finished images contain multiple photographic layers. Dodging, burning, boosting contrast and adjusting exposure were all tasks performed in the darkroom that are now tools she has at her fingertips using the computer. What would have taken hours in the darkroom can be done and then undone in half the time, not necessarily making the completed process any shorter but allowing for ten times the amount of experimenting within.

“A month ago, I moved from New York to London. They’re both places I adore, and (in my opinion) they’re two of the most photogenic cities in the world. So I collected 30 days of iPhone images in the month before I left NYC in the hopes that I could create New York + London double exposures with images taken in my first month here. Below are some of my favorites of the 30 I ended up with.” Daniella Zalcman
Ohio-based photographer Seph Lawless has documented two abandoned malls which were once gleaming symbols of the US’s booming economy. Originally built in the 1970s, the spookily deserted shopping centres – Rolling Acres and and Randall Park Mall – once employed close to 5,000 staff. “The goal was to show the world a different side of America. A vulnerable side,” said Lawless. “I think an abandoned mall is symbolic of the economic decline of America and is a true indication of what happens when cities like Cleveland suffers massive population loss due to loss of manufacturing jobs. Cleveland has lost nearly half its population since these malls opened in the mid 1970.”
Self-taught photographer Darren Moore creates ethereal black and white landscapes using a method called daytime long exposure, where a special filters are attached to a camera lens to reduce the amount of light. These neutral density filters allow for the shutter to open for extended periods of time in broad daylight, from 30 seconds to upward of 15 minutes for a single exposure. Moore shoots mostly in locations around England, where he frequently visits causeways, breakwaters, shipwrecks, and other features along the shore. You can see more of Moore’s photography over on Flickr and in his online gallery.
