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.
At some point or another, many photographers will get the idea into their heads that maybe, one day, they’d like to have a go at shooting large format film. For those who shoot digital, it’s often a far-fetched fantasy. But for those already working with 35mm and medium format film, the idea isn’t quite so crazy.
In this hilarious short film, Jason Kummerfeldt from grainydays beautifully expresses that first 8×10 large format film experience and he does it in the entirely pretentious way that most of us hear from some large format film shooters. And it’s absolutely brilliant.
Note: I had read THIS story on Buzzfeed about a social media influencer who posted professional photos of her accident on Instagram along with what appeared to be a product placement. I thought it unbelievable until…it happened to me.
Okay guys…the first thing you need to know is that I AM OKAY. Seriously, I’m okay, but in the interest of self-promotion, here’s the scary, magical series of events exactly as they happened.
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!
Production company Ridge Productions shot a video for a rapper Sheck Wes. However, he allegedly decided not to pay for it, so Ridge Productions decided to get even. They used the footage to create their own parody video and troll Wes. But although the parody video is absolutely hilarious and has amassed around 1.5 million views so far, it has caused both positive and negative reactions.
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.
The year is 2004, and Nikon has just announced their latest flagship 35mm SLR, the Nikon F6. Matt Granger, who I’m surprised wasn’t wearing a “That Nikon Guy” t-shirt for this, has managed to get his hands on one. So, he’s posted up a review. Strangely, despite the fact that he says it’s 2004, he’s managed to shoot the review in 4K.
You know how, some people, they just don’t have that filter between their brain and their mouth? Know any photographers like that? Well, if you’ve ever thought what that might be like in a real shoot, wonder no more. Canadian comedian Lilly Singh has put her own version together in this two and a half minute long video.
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.
