Now, it’s heading into a class action suit already filed by attorneys of Zimmerman & Reed. [Read more…]
Norwegian Photographer Ronny Tertnes has a way with water. While his camera is pretty basic: Canon EOS 7D + 100mm f/2.8L macro lens and a couple of strobes. Combined with the Splash art drip kit and a vast knowledge of manipulating liquids, Ronny takes photos that make water seem as easy to manage as clay.
Caleb Wires fruits and vegetables in a way similar to the classic electricity-from-potato weekend experiment, only he uses arrays of eatery and visually appealing light fixtures. He then takes a pictures of the power created.

Ukranian photographer Ilya Varlamov has been covering the uprising in Kiev, Ukraine over the last few weeks. He shared his experience along with an incredible series of photographs and allowed us to post them on the blog to increase the spread of the story. The post below describes two days in Kiev: January 22 and 23. Some of the photos may be hard to watch. Aside this post, Ilya has an ongoing coverage of the uprising on his livejournal account (some in Russian, some in English).
In the last days I received multiple requests to translate my posts for foreign readers, as they have very limited information about the happenings in Ukraine. This material describes events which took place in Kyev on January 22 and 23.
Sharing and distribution is appreciated. [Read more…]
While Chile can hardly be described as the end of the world, Chilean photographer Francisco Negroni may have you thinking otherwise.
Living in Chile, the second most volcanic active county in the world, Francisco was drawn to photographing those erupting behemoths of power. While some photos are taken from as far as 12km, some are taken from a mere kilometer away.
There is nothing we like more than the Universe. And there is nothing we love more than creative double exposure techniques. This is why we fell in love with German photographer Jan von Holleben‘s new series Saving The Universe.
The series depicts various universe-saving machines that Jan’s friends and family came up with to help us make a better world.
Czech photographer Hana Vojackova was drawn to images of mermaids but she noticed that the common concept of mermaids lacked connection to the real and present world.
She began a multi-country journey where she “[looked] for local girls who felt a bit different or special. Influenced by the places, the cultures and the girls’ real lives, she created narratives that she then staged for the tableau photographs“#
So far Hana found mermaids in Sicily, Czech Republic, Germany, Portugal, England & Iceland. [Read more…]
Photographer and artist Brock Davis has a very unique view on the objects surrounding him. He sees something funny or clever or inpiring in almost every trivial item.
While he shoots for big names like Wired, New York Times and Esquire Magazine (to name a few) he also takes pleasure with a more personal project involving nothing more than an iPhone and a healthy dose of creativity.
We asked Brock about the series and the concept behind it: [Read more…]
I find it amazing how photos that were completely out of reach for most, are now becoming available as cameras are getting better, smaller, cheaper and more capable. Take this underwater shoot by Czech photographer Pavel Schlemmer with nothing more than a Fujifilm X-E2 and a Aquapac 451 housing. Basically a small camera in a nylon bag. results are amazing.
As a photographers, we get that unique opportunities to see things from a different perspective, so when I got a call “If I’m interested in shooting a report from a synchronized swimming event” I immediately knew, I need to see it & shoot it from underwater. [Read more…]
Usually when we look at a photo we have a pretty strong intuition if it is a two dimensional illustration or a three dimensional object reduced to a two dimensional photo.
In a series of portraits they mimicked various sketching techniques on living models and photographed the results. You could probably swear that some of those are sketches or Photoshop manipulation. But no, they are real live portraits. [Read more…]
