It’s been a busy week for bear news here at DIYP. Following closely behind the bear filming selfie’s on a lost Gopro, we bring to you some slightly more conventional (though no less impressive) footage of a grizzly bear doing his thing in the Yukon wilderness, shot in SloMo no less.
David Troup caught on camera a gigantic male grizzly bear in the Yukon Territory in Canada. First the video shows him rubbing his back against a tree. The bear then runs full tilt towards the camera in a dizzying display of speed and strength, displayed in slow motion. “Look at those claws” David exclaims in his Facebook post. And he’s not wrong, they are huge!
If a single photograph speaks a thousand words, what happens when those words get twisted and misrepresent the image? The photographer who captured the shocking images of US border patrol guards appearing to whip Haitian migrants on the Texas-Mexico border has spoken out, saying that the image does not accurately depict what he saw and that the photograph has been misconstrued.

We’ve been mesmerised for a while now by images and footage of the erupting Fagradalsfjall volcano in Iceland. But just this last week, The Cumbre Volcano in La Palma in the Canary Islands decided to join the action. The documentary video and photography team I Love the World happened to find themselves in the right place at the right time, with drones and a helicopter no less. They have been busy capturing the event and here we can share some impressive examples of what they have been witnessing.
Alfonso Escalero who owns the production company explained to Spanish news channel RTVE that they had been excited to be in La Palma initially to film a documentary about the beauty of the Canary Islands. However, on arrival, they “met hell” with some of the scenes of destruction from the volcano.
New York City’s Rockefeller Centre wants to build a rooftop amusement ride that would simulate the famous historic photo Lunch atop a Skyscraper, albeit minus the risk of a freefall to your death.
The rooftop of the Rockefeller Plaza has long had a viewing deck where spectacular vistas across Manhatten can be seen, but a real estate investment company apparently want to upgrade the ‘Top of the Rock’ observation deck to something a little more Instagram worthy.
Sometimes you’re scrolling on social media and an image just makes you stop and go back to have another look. You scratch your head, trying to figure out how they shot it. Must be Photoshop magic you think. You read the caption “taken in one exposure” and think ‘wait, what?’ That’s exactly what happened when we saw this incredible image titled WAKE UP by a group of light painting photographers who call themselves Sketchlight.
New Zealand pet photographer Ben Sheehan found himself in the dog eat dog world of Photo Stealers, a site dedicated to outing cheating and stealing photographers.
The award-winning photographer ended up on the front page of the Photo Stealers site when several photographers noticed an uncanny resemblance to many stock images in the backgrounds of his dog images. Compositing images together from various photos is a common and reasonable way to create original art, but usually, there is some unwritten understanding that the artist acknowledges the fact that they are composites and doesn’t usually try to pass them off as their own.
