It’s not an April Fool’s joke – Animal Friends Comedy Pet Photo Awards has just announced its 2021 competition. This year’s contest is now open for entries, seeking funny images of your animal best friends. And to inspire you, the contest organizers have shared a collection of hilarious images that we haven’t seen before. It’s not a prank, but it will make you laugh for sure.
We all have that one friend who always blinks or makes a funny face in all of our group photos. In my case, I am that friend. And in the case of this Shiba Inu family, it’s a white dog named Hina. This adorable pup just keeps acting silly while her three sisters are posing, and I guarantee that photos of her will make your day better.
When the pandemic forced us into isolation, many of us had to find new ways to pass the time and new subjects to photograph. Lithuanian photographer Justinas Stonkus is not an exception. When the pandemic hit, he had to find a replacement for his photography gigs without leaving home – and so he did. With his girlfriend and two cats, Justinas recreated famous artworks in a series of brilliant and often funny photos.
Most meetings are happening via video call platforms nowadays. And where there’s video, there are video effects. Sometimes they appear in the most inappropriate situations, and this is exactly what recently happened in Texas. When a Zoom court hearing began, one of the lawyers appeared looking like a cute, sad, little cat thanks to a filter he accidentally turned on.
Do you feel that all travel photos on Instagram are the same? A person with arms spread wide standing at the edge of a cliff. Someone’s arm reaching out into a beautiful scenery. A girl with a fedora hat in a flower field… Yeah, 100% Pure New Zealand feels the same. So, they made this hilarious ad to make people stop traveling under the social influence and encourage them to shoot something new.
Plenty of Fujifilm gear has leaked over the years: from instant cameras to medium format. Most recently, we saw the now announced GFX 100S appear online – but did it really leak? In this brilliant and hilarious ad, Fuji tells us “the truth” about how the company’s latest medium format camera got to leak days ahead of the announcement.
We love seeing a good music video here at DIYP. Over the years, we’ve featured quite a few super-creative ones. But today here’s something a bit different. Filmmaker Sam Newton has created a song and a music video that cracked us up. It pokes fun at all kinds of folks in the industry: those who wanna be instant photographers, those who use photography to get girls… But also subtly calls out Premiere Pro, Lightroom presets, and Nikon.
Mars Petcare Comedy Pet Photo Awards shared its 2020 finalists with us in September. And if you’re still having second thoughts about getting a pet – well, you should read on. The contest has just announced this year’s winners, and it’s a collection of goofy, silly, and plain adorable images of pets.
You know those parodies that are funny, but at the same time painfully accurate? Well, Jacob a.k.a. MasterChiefin1 has one just like that. In this video, he pokes fun of “high school photographers” and their perception of photography at this age. I believe all of us know a photographer like this… Or we used to be one.
360 cameras have been seen by a bit of a gimmick by many people. They’re ok for grabbing quick snaps of yourself and your friends in the environment when you’re on vacation, but that’s about it. At least, it is for them. But there are so many creative things you can do with 360 cameras that you couldn’t really shoot any other way.
One person who’s been having a lot of fun with his 360 camera lately is Alex Ezorsky, who created a series of short videos with an amusing take on the struggles of meeting up with other people these days – as well as a couple of other amusing shorts, like The Hamster Dilemma above.
