We love optical illusions, no matter if they were made with forced perspective, colors, or makeup. Indian wildlife photographer Sarosh Lodhi made one by snapping a photo at exactly the right time. He photographed two zebras, and people can’t seem to agree which one is looking at the camera. Can you guess which one is it?
I’m sure that most of us agree that each dog has its own personality. If you ask me, I love it when photographers manage to capture those animal personalities in photos. German photographer Elke Vogelsang does it, but she brings out the funny side of her four-legged models. Her dog portraits are adorable, fun, and as goofy as it gets. If they don’t put a smile on your face, I don’t know what will.
The funniest photography competition in the world, and one of my personal favorite ones, is open for entries. The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards has brought us plenty of giggles over the past few years. From now until late May you can be a part of it, and we bring you some previously unseen hilarious photos if you need some inspiration. Or if you just need some laughs.
Alexander Khokhlov and Veronica Ershova, have already shown us what they can do when photographing people as a team. But this time, their main subjects were dogs. The duo’s latest project The Dog Show is all about man’s best friend. Alexander and Veronica have created portraits of dogs showing their different personalities and emotions, and they’ll put a smile on your face even if you’re not much of a dog person. I guarantee!
Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards never fails to put a smile on my face. The overall winner has just been announced, and although it certainly made me giggle, the winning photo also carries an important message. And I think many of you need to hear it today.
I can hardly imagine anyone who doesn’t like funny photos of cats. We often give them human traits and make them seem like they’re doing human things. But photographer Harry Whittier Frees did it “before it was cool.” He dressed cats and posed them with props so it looked as if they were doing human things, and he photographed them like this over 100 years ago!
The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards brings funny photos and wildlife photography together, which means: it brings you lots of photos of funny animals. How can it be better than that? The 2019 competition is still on the run, but the team has shared some of the best entries so far with DIYP. Check them out below and have a good laugh just like we did.
If you have a pet (or pets), if you’re anything like me, you love taking photos of them. Still, it can be a challenge to get good, sharp and well-lit images at home. In this video, Matt Granger shares five tips to help you take amazing pet photos at home and depict them in all their cuteness!
In 2018, Sudan, the last remaining northern white rhino passed away of natural causes at the Ol Pejeta conservancy in Laikipia County, Kenya thus ending the existence of their subspecies.
Not far from Sudan’s grave lives Fatu and Najin (mother and daughter), the last known living northern white rhinos on the planet. A loss of habitat and poaching of their valuable horns to be sold off in the black market for traditional eastern medicinal purposes bound for countries such as China, South Korea, and Vietnam has led to the demise of their species.
People do all sorts of stupid things when they are taking selfies with animals, we’ve seen it before. Young photographer Juan van den Heever wanted to take a photo with a biting pelican. It wasn’t enough that the bird was biting his camera and selfie stick, but he eventually stuck his head into the pelican’s beak, of course, to take a selfie.
