Has your Facebook feed been flooded with the photo of impala a few seconds from death by hungry cheetahs? Allegedly, she sacrificed herself to save her younglings from the hungry beasts, and the photo shows his final glare as her young ones escape. Well, this touching story of “motherly sacrifice” turns out to be totally fake. Alison Buttigieg herself, who took the photo, shared the true story behind it. And it has nothing to do with the mother impala offering herself to cheetahs so her cubs can survive.
Are we too old to play with toys? Not necessarily. When you are an adult, you can still find pleasure in playing with toys and create whole new worlds with them. And this is exactly what photographer Péter Csákvári does. He uses mini figurines to create dioramas and capture his own imaginary worlds in a series of photographs called Tiny Wasteland. He combines the figurines with the real-life objects to create funny, weird, dark and even slightly NSFW images of miniature worlds.
We’ve already seen that boyfriends can be very dedicated to taking the best photo for their girlfriends’ Instagram profiles. These photos mainly cover holidays, and even more often some everyday events.
But what happens when the moment should involve only the couple, such as engagement? Does this once-in-a-lifetime event (hopefully) get buried under the search for the perfect angle, choosing the right hashtag and counting the likes? This humorous video by John Crist shows what an engagement in the era of social media looks like. Do you recognize anyone you know?

Instagram has a wide range of different users. But you’ll agree a great portion of this social network belongs to girls and their photos of everyday life. “Candid” shots from a night out, spontaneous selfies (feel the irony) with a best friend… But all we see is the result, and we know nothing about the photographers.
Well, Boyfriends of Instagram are about to change this. Their Facebook and Instagram page pay a tribute to all the boyfriends out there, who are responsible for the perfect Instagram photos and all the “candid” moments that aren’t actually candid. I’m sure they’ll give you a good laugh.
When you fly by airplane, bringing the camera with you is a must. How else would you capture magnificent aerial scenes on such height? But would you ever say you could lose a camera through an airplane window? I thought it was impossible, but then I saw this video. It’s only a bit heartbreaking, but most of all – it’s pretty hilarious.
Dads love their daughters and there’s nothing they wouldn’t do for them. And Josh Rossi, dad and photographer, combined the love for his daughter with the passion for photography. He made his three-year-old daughter’s dream come true with his photographic skills, lots of Photoshop and even more love. He turned his daughter Nellee into Belle from Beauty and the Beast. Maybe you remember him from a few months ago, when he turned his daughter into Wonder Woman.
Josh traveled all over Europe to take the perfect shots. Later on, he did a photo shoot with Nellee and brought all the images together. It took a lot of time, work and patience, but it gave truly fantastic results.

Canon has officially announced the latest addition to their mirrorless M series: Canon EOS M6. In addition to the two new DSLRs and the 18-55mm lens, they have also invested in the mirrorless line once again. In addition, they have also announced the optical viewfinder to go along. So, it turns out that the rumors were true: the new mirroless camera has arrived from Canon only a few months after its “older brother” M5. And what’s more, they seem to be pretty much alike.
