Here is one thing you don’t want happening to you if you are covering the Hockey Stanley Cup Finals. One of the journalists covering the event dropped his lens onto the ice in the early stage of the game. I mean, forget the fact that this lens can easily cost a grand or two (anyone identifies the lens? hit us in the comments.); forget the fact that you are now one lens short for shooting the game; forget the fact that you placed a foreign object on the ice. Focus on what the poor guy must have felt when he saw his lens used as a puck for a few seconds until the players figured out what’s going on.
Earlier this week, actress Rumer Willis very publicly called out photographers Mark Williams and Sara Hirakawa of Williams and Hirakawa on Instagram for allegedly over-editing her facial features in a photo for Vanity Fair.
Now, the photographers have spoken out against the criticism saying no unnecessary post-processing was done to the photograph.[Read More…]
It’s not uncommon for us to come across a story about a celebrity getting upset that their stomach, hips, legs or even arms were unrealistically edited in an image via post-production. What is uncommon is to come across an incident where it’s the subject’s face that received an unrealistic make-over in Photoshop.
Every once in a while we will see an epic photoshop fail making its way into the front page. Heck, even Victoria’s Secret had a Photoshop bloop a while back. Now, Snickers is building on those fails in a new ad featured in Sport Illustrated.
Sports Illustrated back cover does not target the general public, they do not even target photographers (is there a difference) they are targeting retouchers, with a brilliant ad.
According to Snickers , Photoshop fails happen when retouchers are tired (due to not eating sneakers, I suppose). I have to say it smiled pretty broadly when I saw that.
DIYP was one of the first to report about Nikon Singapore awarding a trolley bag to a Photoshopped photo (you can read the full story here). While both the internet and Nikon SG have been having a great deal of fun with the photo, Yu Wei have been taking quite a deal of abuse. From something that was supposed to be a fun photo contest, this has become an open season on Yu Wei.
Uh oh. Nikon Singapore PR might have some explaining to do.
Last night, Nikon Singapore shared a Facebook post announcing the winner of a photo contest giveaway. There was a slight problem though. The winning photo appears to be a fake, despite the story behind the image blatantly stating otherwise.[Read More…]
A little while back, Victoria’s Secret lunched a new line of underwear called Mesh-back Cheeky Panty. Now this usually wont land them an article in a photography related blog, but the photo VS posted on their social media channels [NSFW link] was an epic Photoshop fail.
The photo is showing a model wearing the underwear from behind but both the model’s legs and her bottom were missing something. In the case of her legs one leg was missing more meat than the other, and in the case of the bottom, one cheek had disappeared completely.
Just a few weeks ago a man in San Diego was bitten while trying to take a selfie with a rattlesnake, and a couple of weeks ago another Californian suffered a similar injury.
While the first guy’s story drew attention worldwide due to the ridiculously high medical bill he received, Alex Gomez’ accident is making headlines following the harsh criticism of his actions – by his own mother, on TV no less.
Having “no mercy for him”, the disappointed mother decided to share her son’s story, along with the selfie and hospital photos, in order to teach him a lesson.
He may be the world’s fastest man, but he’s no match for a segway riding photographer. After winning the 200 meter dash at the World Athletics Championships, Jamaican athlete Usain Bolt was taking a celebratory barefooted stroll down the sidelines as he waved to the throng of cheering fans in the arena stands–it was a pretty standard series of events for the champion sprinter.
That is until this cameraman loses control of his segway and topples into an unsuspecting Bolt. It appears the cameraman was too distracted grabbing video footage to notice he was about to run into some railing. The photographer was bucked off the segway as it rolled into the back of Bolt’s legs, sending both men to ground.[Read More…]
What’s the best way to promote your 24 karat gold flagship phone? Photograph it with your best competitor’s phone and send to media. Or at least this is what HTC must be thinking.
HTC released a premium version of their HTC One M9 made from 24K gold. As far as we know there is no way to obtain this phone via stores (though it may eventually pop on eBay), and the only way to get one is to be one of the selected few who receive it in the UEFA Champions League season finale.
And how do HTC go about creating buzz about this phone? They tweet it’s photo. But one keen eyed follower noted a weird reflection on one of the phones. A closer examination clearly shows – the photo was taken with an iPhone 6. The tweet was taken down, but you can see a snap of it below
