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.
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 can argue forever (and we most likely will), but we can also turn this common argument into a great joke. This is exactly what Eric Floberg did with his latest video. It lasts under one minute, and that’s all it took for Eric to show that gear does matter. And to troll YouTubers a bit along the way.
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.
If I had to describe 2020 in a single word, it would probably be a swear word. However, it’s always good to go through tough periods with some humor, and Adobe recently showed us how it’s done.
In this gloomy time, I think we all need a bit of laughter, but also a bit of inspiration to start observing the world around us. Hong Kong-based photographer Edas Wong brings humor and street photography together. His “accidental” photos will give you the giggles I’m sure you need, but also motivate you to get outside with your camera and look at the world from another point of view.
They say to never work with animals or children and while I agree with the children part of that, I’ve always been quite partial to working with animals in front of my camera. You just have to be careful of the ones with horns, sometimes, as this BBC cameraman discovered while filming some Cameroon sheep.
While it’s something that will make every guy who sees it both cringe and laugh, there’s nothing quite as funny as the reaction from the ladies presenting the show.
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.
