A rather funny, and perhaps somewhat worrying, video shows an encounter between Dallas Police detectives and a camera crew that took place a couple of days ago.
As we’ve seen too often lately, police are quick on the scene once a drone is around and in this case they were making sure the team wasn’t flying the device near the airport.
That would all be perfectly fine, except the ‘drone’ in this case wasn’t flying anywhere, with our without the FAA’s approval.
Photographers do have some reflection in them, so we know that we divide into groups and that models can teach us quite a bit. But what if we turn to models to define us. I am sure this would prove to be an interesting exercise showing at least some of our shortcomings.
ModelsBeLike did just that as a humorous video, reflecting back to the photography community what they think about the types of photographers that there have encountered during their Careers.
While I don’t shoot a lot of models now, I have to say that I am probably to be blamed in so many of those on my early days. [Read more…]
Paying homage to the great masters of art is not an easy task. Photographer Freddy Fabris took a stab at it. However, paying homage does not mean duplicate, and Freddy added his own touch to the painting. Instead of simply recreating The Last Supper, Creation Of Adam and The Anatomy Lesson with Renaissance models, Freddy used auto mechanics models, settings and locations. The results are smile inducing.
Can you imagine the photography course as an advance on a video game? Collecting objects and solving puzzles to unlock levels? The team at DigitalRev took a swing in translating how a photographer advances through life as a series of Video game character increments.
While I wholeheartedly disagree with the analysis, I also all wholeheartedly laughed at the video.
I wonder do you agree with this break down? What stage are you on?

The people over at Bokeh touch some of the most annoying day-to-day things that every single photographer encounters or has encountered at some point.
From mounting issues to forgetting the self timer is on, this video will make you laugh or make you angry at the companies that should have solved these issues a long time ago.
Which of these annoying things are you worst, which were left out of the list and how would you solve them?
Modeling is not easy. I am not being a cynic here. Done right it can be a very demanding job and has much more to do than just ‘looking pretty’. There is posing involved, understanding lighting, makeup, and hard physical work. This has always been the case. But looking at the job from the pink glasses of the eighties somehow makes it all so dreamy.
Found Footage Fest “showcases footage from videos that were found at garage sales and thrift stores and in warehouses and dumpsters across the country“. This time they put together a compilation of modeling tutorials, tips and interviews featuring Denise Richards, Tiffani-Amber Thiessen and others. I am not sure, but maybe it should have stayed on VHS.
Put your leggings on and remember to practice your ‘Ay’, ‘ee’, ‘Ay’, ‘Oh’ and your action poses.
You know that ever since places stated to ban selfie sticks we are left with very little options on location for a selfie. You are almost confined to taking selfies solely at home. Luckily this new selfie spoon stick (which is partially a publicity stunt from cinnamon toast crunch) will let you take a selfie while you are eating your cereal.
The Selfie Spoon looks like a hybrid between a selfie stick and, well… a spoon. It comes in hideous purple only and features a remote that can snap a photo at the precise time you are eating your cereal. What else can you ask for?
- I love it when clients RE-edit my images and then share them on Facebook.
- No, no…by all means…you go ahead and pose yourself.
- Come on, weather…I need a bright sunny day and NO shade!
- I’m sorry you don’t like your new hair cut in these pictures; that’s totally my fault.
- Okay, clothing suggestions: you wear stripes; you wear polka dots; you wear a “Hello Kitty” shirt and you wear a suit.
- I wish I could edit this wedding forever.
- Are you nuts? Of course I can make a homemade meal for dinner, help with homework, give baths AND edit this mountain of images tonight. All before 8pm.
Nature is a wonderful thing – there are times it entrances us with its hypnotic beauty…and there are other times when it just makes us laugh a ball off. Today, we’re exploring the latter.
Wyatt Green of Boater’s Outlet was chilling with the fishes (literally, no metaphor implied) at Lake Powell in Utah when things got a little frisky. While filming some tiny fish swimming around him (why, exactly, we’re not sure), one of them leapt from the water and quickly got to second base with Wyatt, latching onto his nipple. (Yes, Mr. Media Censorship, men have nipples, too.)
