You may argue whether gear matters or not, but one thing’s for sure: owning fancy gear doesn’t make you a photographer. And this image captured by Detroit-based photographer Holly Romaya is a perfect example that proves this point.
From time to time, we get to see DIY photography ideas that are so funny, yet so brilliant. Using a beer helmet as a speedlight holder is definitely one of them. A Japanese photographer who goes by the nickname @nishihiro0312 uses this cheap party helmet to light his images, and he mounts speedlights and even diffusers onto it.
We’ve seen animals snatching cameras before. While penguins, chimps and polar bears took some selfies, this lioness decided to use a pricey camera as a toy for her cubs. It happened when wildlife photographer Barbara Jensen Vorster dropped her camera, and the big cat snatched it and give her little ones something to play with. Luckily, Vorster had a second camera, so she managed to capture the playful bunch dragging $2,600 worth of gear around.
Have you noticed all those people around you who are constantly trying to capture a perfect selfie or holiday snapshot? This compilation from Ozzy Man Reviews will show you why acting like this can be dangerous. But also, it shows how people who constantly take snapshots with their phones can make our lives more interesting.
“Ugh, what did you take that photo with, a potato?” Well, the guys from Corridor Crew would answer this question with a yes. They literally made a camera out of a potato and even took some shots with it. In this fun video, they share the process of making, as well as some challenges they faced along the way.
The launch of SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy has caused plenty of reactions all over the world. The epic launch has made many of us stand in awe and the photos gave us goosebumps. But, just like all major events, this one has also made many people inspired for creating memes and parodies. My Facebook feed has been flooded with hilarious photo manipulations today, and they’re mainly Slavic (which in my opinion makes them even funnier). I’ve decided to share a couple of them with you, and I hope to bring a smile to your face.
Photobombs can be the most annoying or the most hilarious thing. I especially love it when animals photobomb humans. This photobomb that interrupted KTVU’s weather report is funny as hell and so darn cute! What seems to be huge crow has photobombed the camera in the middle of the report and made the TV crew have a good laugh.
The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards contest focuses on wildlife conservation, but with a dose of humor in wildlife photography. They have announced the finalists of their 2017 contest, and it’s a precious collection of wildlife photos that will make you giggle and make your heart warm. It’s Monday and it’s cold – so take a look at this entertaining gallery and let these amazing, funny photos improve your day.
Ok, so maybe it goes a little further than suggesting it. It states quite bluntly that it’s gone too far. I’ve still never seen an example in real life quite like that shown in the video posted to Facebook page Hot Date, though. But, I definitely see a lot more bad contouring makeup jobs when I wander through the local high street than I used to.
Taking photos of food before the meal has gone so far there’s even a restaurant giving you a kit for taking better photos. But if you just don’t understand this trend, a recent video from Kevin Freshwater will make you happy.
Kevin destroys the Instagram food photos for his friends a split second before they take the snap. I couldn’t stop laughing at their reactions, and I must admit – this is something I’d gladly do sometimes.
