Twitter, Instagram and its parent company Facebook recently removed Donald Trump’s video from its platforms. The video contained photos of protests that prompted after George Floyd’s death on 25 May. One of the photos was a subject of a copyright complaint filed by the copyright holder.
The National Archives recently came under fire for doctoring an image to hide an anti-Trump message. Its ongoing exhibition Rightfully Hers: American Women and the Vote greets the visitors with a large photo from the Women’s March on 21 January 2017. However, the closer look reveals that the photo was edited, blurring out the signs with anti-Trump messages.
The United States Senate is subjecting the press to unprecedented restrictions as Donald Trump’s impeachment trial is scheduled to begin next Tuesday. There will be no cameras allowed and no audio recorders, which will make it impossible for the press to cover the event. Expectedly, this has caused significant negative reactions among the public, especially press photographers and journalists.
I’m sure you’ve seen a photo of Trump’s notepad filled with all-caps letters scribbled with a Sharpie. It’s been all over social media, and it has already become a meme material. Getty Images photographer Mark Wilson is the man who took this photo. In a recent interview, he revealed more of how he got the shot that went viral overnight.
The USA President Donald Trump has recently tweeted a photo of himself awarding a Medal of Honor to a military dog. As if it’s not unusual enough to award this medal to an animal, the image is very obviously photoshopped. After someone found the original photo from 2017, Trump received a massive meme roast under his tweet, and some of these are utterly hilarious.
President Donald Trump’s most recent financial disclosure has revealed an unusual agreement involving Getty Images and Melania Trump. In 2017, the First Lady has reportedly earned at least $100,000 in an agreement with Getty for the use of photos of the Trump family. But there’s a catch: the media are only allowed to use each of the 187 photos in “positive stories.”
A photo of a crying two-year-old at the Mexican border became a symbol of the recent immigration crisis. However, it has now come to light that this girl was allegedly not separated from her mother. The Border Patrol agent who was involved in the scene says that the mother and her daughter are being housed together in Texas, which makes the photo “a little misleading.”
I came across this photo of US President Donald Trump today and I laughed so hard coffee was coming out of my nose.
Here we have the most powerful man in the world, surrounded by an entire squad of beefy manly dudes, and Trump looks like a tiny little muppet in the middle.
You’d think that a guy with a thing about the size of his tiny hands and a tough-guy caricature to maintain wouldn’t want to look like a helpless tiny Benjamin Button…yet this is the photo he (or his best people) liked enough to post as his Twitter banner.
OK – I know American politics are a little nutty – so as a community of photographers, lets just take a moment to analyse why Trump looks so funny in this photo, and how you can avoid it.[Read More…]
It’s nothing new that politicians use notes and cue cards when giving speeches. But a recent AP photo shows that Donald Trump uses notes that remind him to be sympathetic. AP photographer Carolyn Kaster managed to capture the notes president Trump used when meeting people impacted by the mass school shootings across the US. The photo made the public worried and caused a lot of reaction.
The White House have released new official portraits for both President Trump and Vice President Pence. Pence’s actually looks pretty good, but Trump’s? Not so much. If I didn’t know better, I’d say it just looks like a smartphone grab shot with ambient room light.
The portraits were shot by two different photographers. Shealah Craighead and D. Myles Cullen photographed Trump and Pence, respectively. The newly released Trump portrait does offer a more friendly pose and expression than the last one, but the bad lighting and messy background really lets it down.
