One of my favorite things about photography is how it enables “time travel”. Photographer Freddy Fabris (previously) took his models on a ride to 1900’s where he re-created a series of 1900’s sportsmen. Freddy shares that “The series was inspired by late 1800‘s, early 1900‘s studio portrait photography, with their use of painted backdrops and simple props” that was a starting point and he took if from there. the series includes a Boxer, an Equestrian, a Fenser, and Hockey & Tennis players.

A few months ago I began a photography series recreating the iconic X-men group with cosplay artists. My first character was the Dark phoenix. After completing this, I went to look for the second hero. Of course that called for another screening of the X-men (this time the X-men 2 movie).
I fell in love with The Nightcrawler – Kurt Wagner – and decided he would be my next project.
We’ve all seen photos from the early days of photography, and we all know how far imaging technology has come over the years, but how did we go from long-exposure self-portraits to instant selfies?
Using one model and a whole lot of Photoshop, Leo recreated eleven essential milestones in photographic history.
BuzzFeed’s Zach Kornfeld turned to the online world in order to find a date, but his profile photo just wasn’t getting the job done. In need of a few pointers on how to take sexy photos of himself, Zach met up with “Instagram’s sexiest man”, Brock O’Hurn.
With over 2.2 million followers on Instagram and Facebook Brock is a professional model, described as looking like Thor (but sexier), and definitely knows a thing or two about taking crowd-pleasing photos.
Aside from the humor is an interesting fact from OKCupid’s co-founder about the importance of good profile photos, and a quick lesson in self-acceptance.
Somewhat-NSFW language is used in parts of the video.
What if you could create beautiful Golden Hour portraits without the sun? Well, you can. All it takes is a few strobes and a little know-how.
Since then, they’ve added six more, created a collection of smartphone apps and even developed an artist grant ‘that provides artists the resources to pursue their creative vision, no matter what the medium.’
To honor its 4 year anniversary, VSCO has decided to drop the price of all seven of its film packs to $59, almost 50% off what they usually sell for at the time of release.
The Lensbaby brand has been around for a while now and it’s a name that is synonymous with helping photographers see in a new way but perhaps most importantly in my opinion they also help to inject a bit of the creativity and art back into this slightly more clinical digital age of photography.
Up until now Lensbaby has always been about making lens for photographers that would add a creative edge to the image taking process. They make a variety of lenses, some of which distort the field of focus on a horizontal plane like their Edge 80 lens or their Composer Pro lens that distorts the image on radial focal point all fully adjustable by the user. I have used one of their lenses at some point during nearly all of my shoots for a long time now and although the effects produced are incredibly dramatic I have never thought to use a Lensbaby on an entire shoot from start to finish, that is until now.
A good photograph has the power to stop us in our tracks, take our breath away, inspire us, make us wish we were there, standing inside of it. It’s true, the power of photography is magnificent. Unfortunately, it’s magical powers are sometimes used in ways that are not quite so inspirational. Like last year, when a 31-year old hacker who works under the name”Starbug”, claimed he could recreate a person’s fingerprints using just a few images from a “standard photo camera”, which proved by duplicating the fingerprints of German defense minister, Ursula von der Leyen.
In the same presentation, Starbug demonstrated how embarrassingly easy it is to trick facial recognition software using printed out photographs. Strabug’s work prompted an international conversation on security and how rapidly evolving camera tech is causing new concerns about the way criminals can use photography to commit crimes.[Read More…]
I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again: Documentary photography has been one of my foremost artistic influences and fascinations since I was a child. Telling stories about real people and real moments that can never be recreated.
Sebastião Salgado is a fascinating photographer and has amassed a body of work that would take a whole team of photographers a lifetime to create. Now, his story is being told in the documentary The Salt of the Earth, a film that Rotten Tomatoes calls “a shattering, thought-provoking testament to Sebastião Salgado’s career.”
