Shooting Challenges are back for 2013, and our first of the year is a doozy. For this week's challenge, you'll capture beautiful human figures that blur into abstract art. An accomplished portrait photographer explains how.

By far, this is the most spectacular and insane photography of an aurora borealis I've ever seen. When I showed this in our virtual bullpen, the unanimous reaction was complete awe.
Who needs the Bat-Signal? Especially when a Canon EOS 7D, a cheapo fireworks sparkler, and a little long exposure trickeration can give you something much, much cooler.
We've all seen long exposure photography, allowing you to create shapes with light. But I don't think any of us has seen anything quite like the work of Barry Underwood, a landscape photographer for our connected, electric world. (More photos:)
