Has it ever happened to you to eagerly wait for the perfect moment to capture only to have it photobombed? This is exactly what happened to dozens of Harry Potter fans this Monday. They were anxiously waiting for the Hogwarts Express steam train to pass through a station, having their cameras prepared – only to have their shots photobombed by a local commuter train. Hilarious for some and disappointing for others, the moment was captured in a video by one of the observers.
I firmly believe that pets can make anyone’s life better. If you’re still having second thoughts on whether or not to get one, Mars Petcare Comedy Pet Photo Awards 2020 is here to help you make this decision. One of the funniest photo contests has just shared its 2020 finalists to remind you why pets are awesome. Or at least they’ll make you giggle and make your day.
Some people seem to like to punish themselves. One such person is YouTuber Ashens, who seems to regularly buy the crappiest things he can find in order to consistently waste his time and money or simply risk his wellbeing. And true to form, he bought several cameras from Wish (yes, Wish again).
The four cameras ranged in price from £25 up to £71 (~$33-95). Given that they were cheap and, well, from Wish, it wasn’t really fair to put them up against a modern mirrorless camera or DSLR. So, Ashens pitted them against his Panasonic HDC-SD90, released in 2011. Surely they could compete with an almost decade-old consumer camera… right?
With the coronavirus pandemic, many folks switched to working online. Things like teaching, business meetings and other face-to-face activities have been replaced with video calls. Home has become both home and workplace, and admit it: your wardrobe totally reflects this.
Creative duo The Workmans shows this “fashion crossover” in their latest photo series #COVIDwear. The concept is “Business on the top. Quarantine on the bottom,” and yes, it’s exactly what it sounds. It’s absolutely hilarious, and I’m pretty sure it shows what most of us have been wearing for work for the past few months.
The COVID-19 pandemic has left many creatives without work and income. Sadly, this means that some of them even had to sell a part of their gear to make a living until the crisis is over. It’s bitter to think about it, but filmmaker Jeff Hartman decided to fight the bitterness with humor (my kind of person). He created a short film that shows you alternatives uses of your gear if you’re out of work during the pandemic. And it’s one of the funniest videos I’ve seen ever since this coronavirus crisis started.
While most of us aren’t out shooting, now is a perfect time to sit and reflect on the photographic and filmmaking mistakes we’ve made, and how we can stop making them going forward. In this video, Joris Hermans talks about 8 of the dumbest photography and filmmaking mistakes he’s made (and sometimes still makes). They’re mistakes that almost all of us have made at some point.
We love funny photos of animals. I mean, who doesn’t? If you have goofy pets and want to show their funny side to the world, now’s your chance. MARS Petcare Comedy Pet Photo Awards is back and it’s now open for entries. You can submit your images, but here are some of the hilarious entries submitted so far to inspire you. And of course, to make your day at least a bit better.
There are so many things that we can do at home while in isolation. But there are also many that we can’t, and skiing is certainly one of them. Or is it? Photographer and filmmaker Philipp Klein Herrero found a way to ski in his living room. Well, sort of. In his humorous and entertaining stop motion video, Philipp goes freeride skiing without even leaving home.
