My favorite kind of trolling is self-trolling, and Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA) has already shown us that they’re really good at it. Now they’re back with a new set of stock photos that cover pretty much all stereotypes about Canadians. They are hilarious, free for you to download and use in your projects… Or you can just browse the gallery and have a good laugh.
If the name James (Jamie) Fridman rings a bell, that’s because his work has probably made you laugh out loud at least once. Jamie is not only a Photoshop wizard but also a man with a fantastic sense of humor. And when you bring those two together, you get hilarious Photoshop creations you’d probably never think of.
Jamie accepts submissions from his followers with requests to edit their photos. Like many other retouchers, right? The catch is that Jamie takes his clients’ requests very literally, so the work he sends back is quirky, unexpected, and downright hilarious.
It is often said that gear makes little to no difference, however that couldn’t be further from the truth in the case of Lon Moore. In an exclusive interview with DIYPhotography, Mr. Moore agreed to share his experiences.
I’m sure you’ve seen El Risitas in one of many iterations of his 2007 interview, filled with his recognizable laughter. This video turned into a meme in 2015, and a bunch of “subtitled” videos popped up on YouTube. Well, here’s finally one for photographers and other artists. In this one, El Risitas is subtitled as Picasso telling a story about the Rule of Thirds and why it sucks.
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.
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.
