After Instagram led to the arrest of a Capitol rioter, here’s another case where this social network led to an arrest. A Nashville man, who was out on a bond on a statutory rape charge, was arrested after he was seen in a live video published by a runaway juvenile.
The attack on the US Capitol happened on 6 January, but photos, videos, and news are still surfacing. Over 400 people have been arrested so far, but at least one of the suspects was caught thanks to Instagram. The FBI used photos and videos from his girlfriend’s Instagram and identified the man with some help of facial recognition.
On Wednesday 6 January, hundreds of Trump supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol Building to protest the election results. In the incident, the rioters attacked journalists and destroyed equipment worth tens of thousands of dollars.
A UK woman recently fell out of a window of a car that was driving 110 mph. How is that even possible, you may wonder? Well, of course, she was filming a video for social media.
While visiting the Antonio Canova Museum in Possagno, Italy, a tourist managed to damage a 19th-century statue because – as you could probably guess – he posed for a photo. The man thought it would be awesome to lie next to the statue and have his photo taken. And when he did so, he broke off three of the statue’s toes.
We’ve seen all kinds of stupid stunts people pull off just to take a photo. Nothing can shock us anymore, right? How about a father who is dangling his young son over a cliff for a photo? Yes, that happened. A man in China was caught on video as he was dangling a young boy over a cliff while another man was taking photos.
A drone video shared online has caused quite a stir over the past few days. It’s a drone footage showing the US Navy Blue Angels performing a flyover, with the drone flying way too close to the aircraft.
There’s not really that much to say about this video from Ryan at Small Moments Studios (which does contain some pretty strong language in parts). It pretty much speaks for itself. He’s been stuck in his house now for 23 days and his business is on hiatus, Why? Well, there’s kind of a global pandemic going on.
His message to photographers is a simple one – Stay at home. Ryan talks about posts he’s been seeing daily in online groups, and I’ve seen plenty of them in the groups I’m in myself, photographers wondering if they should keep going out to shoot clients. Overwhelmingly, the responses are “Don’t be f**king stupid! Stay at home!”.
Russian influencer Ekaterina Didenko recently threw a party that went incredibly wrong. During the party, her husband reportedly poured 55 lb of dry ice into a swimming pool for “visual effects.” This caused him and two other guests to die from carbon dioxide poisoning, and what started as celebration ended in a terrible disaster.
When will people ever learn that this is not only dangerous and stupid but also highly illegal in most parts of the world? Yet again, we hear another story of not just one somebody, but 8 somebodies almost being hit by a train for a photo shoot on active train tracks.
Shot by Virtual Railfan, the video shows a family made up of the mother, father, two girls and three boys, along with a photographer doing a shoot on the tracks in Greencastle, PA, barely being missed by a huge train with only seconds to spare.
