The third edition of Lens Curator’s fifth season brings you 5 new excerpts from the world of photography and videography. This month we take a look at origins of Instagram, Fiverr, global shutter, car photo editing and weather resistant cameras.

Moe Zainal created this great tutorial where he walks us through his editing workflow and briefly explains why he uses Lightroom before jumping onto Photoshop.
