We are already witnessing the change in the industry with CGI models taking over ads and campaigns. The latest ad from IKEA Japan is one of the examples, and it’s really interesting to watch. Instead of a human, IKEA used a computer-generated model to be a star of its ad, and I believe most of us couldn’t guess that it wasn’t a real person.

That social media is full of fakery is old news. But what fascinates me is just how easy it is to fake your life on Instagram. YouTuber Natalia Taylor recently decided to test it out herself. She “traveled” to the nearest IKEA store and took some photos, even purposely leaving some IKEA price tags in them. She shared them on Instagram, and she managed to prank her followers to believe that she was on a vacation in Bali. Natalia shares more details in her recent video, and it’s a useful reminder that social media isn’t real.
Although the darkroom isn’t quite as common as it once was, it seems to be gaining a resurgence of late. Every day I see people buying and selling darkroom equipment in Facebook groups and various online classifies. But a lot of the older electronics kit just doesn’t work anymore, and repairing it isn’t always easy, or even possible.
But, now we have plenty of other options to replace some of those electronic items, even if they need to be modified. Ikea’s Klockis, for example, is potentially an ideal little darkroom timer, but it needs modifications in order to make it safe. In this video, photographer Markus Hofstätter shows us how he modified his Klockis for use in the darkroom.
The Loupedeck+ is a fantastic piece of kit. As soon as it was released, it was already a nice little upgrade over the original Loupedeck with a more solid design, better buttons and knobs, and the promise of future software support. Now it supports a growing array of software with more still to come.
But the Loupedeck+ still has one issue for some people. It sits too flat on the table. With most computer keyboards, we get little feet that allow us to raise up the back end to make it a little more ergonomic. No such luck with the Loupedeck+. The folks at Lensvid, though, have taken things into their own hands by chopping up an IKEA BRÄDA laptop stand to use with the Loupedeck+.
Dustin Dolby from Workphlo is known for his product photography tutorials that give professional results without too much fancy gear. In his latest video, he shows you how to shoot small products using a $10 IKEA Melodi lamp. This time, you won’t need an IKEA lamp as a light source. Instead, it serves as a sort of a light tent for creating soft and even light. Dustin guides you through his setup for this shoot, but also through the post-production process.The entire setup is pretty affordable and gives great results, so take a look.
I have a confession to make.
I am a professional photographer. I’ve lived in my current house for nearly fifteen years.
I don’t have a single photo that I’ve taken on my walls.
The reason…..?[Read More…]
Good sliders aren’t cheap. Most cheap sliders are rarely good. But when your budget’s ultra low, what are you going to do? Either you buy something that you’ll probably use twice and throw away, or you build your own.
The latter is the option chosen by YouTuber Atti Bear in his most recent video. In it, Atti shows us how he build his slider with items bought from Ikea for a total price of less than $20.
Here is a nice concept for product photography. If you are familiar with table-top, you will love this table-bottom concept.
Known around the world for their self-assembly furniture and a range of products you can repurpose for photography, Ikea wants to help you with your photography, by slowing you down and helping you to get the one shot that matters.
Literally, one shot, that’s it. Titled “Klikk”, the Ikea Belgium app aims to force photographers to think more carefully on the composition, light, and timing of their photographs, rather than firing off a few dozen, picking the best and running it through some crazy filter.
