Is your social media getting you down? Need some help raising your profile? Well, then you’d better call Paul. German photographer, cinematographer and part-time comedian Paul Ripke, that is. Having amassed almost 450K followers on his own Instagram, he’s now put out this amusing commercial offering to help you get your Instagram “Lit as f**k”, too!
“The Photography Mafia? That’s ridiculous,” she said. “There is no such thing.”
I knew she didn’t want to believe it and yet, I saw a flicker of terror in her eyes. She had seen too much to believe with all certainty that what had just happened was a coincidence. We all had seen too much.
Drones are no stranger to the articles on this website, so a movie that features a drone it’s pretty relevant, right? Well… I don’t even know what to say about this one. Unless this is supposed to be a comedy, and I genuinely can’t tell from the trailer, I cannot think of a dumber idea for a movie than this.
So, it’s like Child’s Play? But Chucky’s a drone? Yes, folks, that’s basically the plot of “The Drone”. “A serial killer transfers his consciousness into a consumer drone”, the trailer description says. In this case, some model of DJI Phantom.
I’ve been watching more and more of the Camera Conspiracies channel lately. And while a lot of the things are slightly ludicrous (in a good, amusing way), they do say that there’s “many a true word spoken in jest”. And, oh boy, does this one ring true. B-Roll is not content.
B-Roll seems to have taken over the lives of many YouTubers, to the point where they’re basically an intro, some b-roll, and an ending. For the occasional showcase video, it’s impressive eye candy. But when it becomes the norm for all your videos, and more of your video is b-roll than actual content, it just gets boring. Please stop.
Of all NASA’s achievements over the years, this has to be up there amongst the best. It’s certainly the most hilarious. It turns out, that on every mission since the first International Space Station mission in 2000, NASA has created expedition posters. Posters that typically include a group photo of the crew.
After a while, I guess they started to feel a bit boring. And maybe a bit cringy. So, they decided to take things up a notch or two. These mission posters now parody some of the most famous movie posters out there. And they’re awesome. They’re used to advertise expeditions and also hung in various NASA facilities.
If you want to learn about the real history of the digital camera sensor size wars, then you probably should watch a different video. But if you want to have a bit of laugh while seeing how far sensors have come over the years, then this video from Camera Conspiracies may just be for you.
A phrase you often hear when it comes to children is “they grow up so quickly”. Not quickly enough, though, for Texas-based lifestyle and family photographer Ashley Evans. Oh no, she’s been force-growing babies in Photoshop by giving them teeth. And, yes, that’s just as terrifying and hilarious as it sounds!
When I first saw one of these pictures scroll up my Facebook feed, I skipped by it. But then I had to scroll back because something wasn’t right about it. Then it struck me what it was. I couldn’t look away, so, DIYP got in touch with Ashley to find out more about what has now become the Babies with Teeth project… and why?!?
If the real world worked like the online-photography world of stolen photos posted to websites and ads:
Why is everyone so mad? I never said it was MY car. And I didn’t know it was wrong. I mean, I saw a car that I really wished my car looked like, and it was unlocked and the keys happened to be inside and so I just used it to run errands and go to work and drive around town. And when people said, “Hey, I love that car!” I said “Thank you,” because I love it, too.
We’ve seen, made and wrote about many cheap DIY projects. This time, Alex of I did a thing has come up with five hilarious, tongue-in-cheek “hacks” perfect for every cheapskate videographer or photographer. It doesn’t get cheaper than this, and all you need to do is raid your fridge. Or your neighbor’s home.
