Photographs Of Pets And Their Owners Mashed Up

Canadian wedding photographer and filmmaker Zachary Rose (23) takes the common saying about pets and their owners to the next step.

Zachary shoots an photograph of a pet using a DSLR and then takes another photo holding the DSLR in a specific way so the head of the pet seems attached to the body of the pet’s owner.

Zach (@zachdriftwood on Instagram) than uploads the photos to Instagram with the #petheadz hashtag.

Photographs Of Little People Show An Alternate World Hidden In The Streets

London based artist, Slinkachu, uses model humans and everyday objects to create and photographs alternate happenings that may have been in your everyday-normal street.

Photographs Of Little People Show An Alternate World Hidden In The Streets

In his project titled Little People, Slinkachu creates tiny installations of small people and leaves them on the street (as his clever tag line goes – Abandoning little people since 2006).

While the installations are an art by themselves, the photos of those installations are an important part of the art.

Each project is accompanied by a set of images (usually 3 ) showing the world (1) as seen by a fellow little person, (2) as seen by us humans, and (3) something in between. Here are the ones that go with the title image: [Read more...]

Cassini’s Closeup On A Saturn Hurricane

The image is not a screenshot from a class b horror movie showing an opening to hell, though with the temperatures and winds it captured it very well might have been. This unearthly hurricane eye is a staggering 1,250 miles across with cloud speeds as fast as 330 miles per hour.

This photograph of a Saturnian Hurricane (higher res here) was captured in November 2012 by Cassini, an unmanned spacecraft orbiting Saturn since 2004. (Launched by NASA in October 1997).

Down-angled Photos Turn Hong Kong Into A 2 Dimensional Arcade

Down-angled Photos Turn Hong Kong Into A 2 Dimensional Arcade

Swedish photographer Christian Åslund was fascinated with the view seen from the elevated sky scrapers in Hong Kong. The idea of arcade-like views was later sold to shoe maker Jim Ricky and a campaign was born. It was fascinating to learn how the idea was conceived and executed from start to finish. The actual shoot took only four days (2 scouting, 2 shooting), a team of three and was done with a single camera and lens: Nikon 3Ds with a 70-200mm f2.8 lens on the tele side. More photos and some insights after the jump. [Read more...]

Amateur Astrophotographer And Hubble Space Telescope Join Forces To Snap M106

Amateur Astrophotographer And Hubble Space Telescope Join Forces To Snap M106

Here is what happens when great talents are combined with great resources. Physician and astrophotographer Robert Gendler was granted access to the Hubble Space Telescope archives (actually we all are)

Instead of stitching an image made solely from the Hubble data, Robert filled in the blanks with photographs he and a fellow astrophotographer taken in New Mexico. The result is a glorious photostitch of the M106 galaxy. [Read more...]

Eschersque Collages Created From High Contrast Photographs

As a kid I was fascinated with M.C. Escher’s drawings. I was intrigued by the intertwining details, if you’ve never heard of of M.C. Escher, or just want to reminisce, I highly recommend getting one of his books.

Eschersque Collages Created From High Contrast Photographs

Russian Photographer Alexey Menschikov is doing something similar with his photographs. Alexey creates all kinds of intriguing graphic shadow art. His subjects, including groups of pigeons, cats, dogs, and even people, are all perfectly placed with shadows perfectly cast. The sharp contrast of black and white tones along with Menschikov’s composition create a visual pattern of shapes in both the negative and positive spaces. [Read more...]
