Little Friends Photos has managed to capture dogs looking as mean and frightening as sharks. Some of these are seriously scary. Maybe sharks wouldn’t be as scary if they were on land? Happy to see these pooches are attacking nothing more than a fetch ball.
OK Go teamed up with Sesame Street to create a stop-motion video about colors. This song is so catchy! It’s been in my head for the whole weekend! Also, I am loving OK Go’s creativity lately. Also check out their new music video for Needing/Getting where they did some stunt driving while still playing instruments.
Andrew Bush’s book Drive features portraits of people driving on the freeway. The book is a little pricey for me, but it seems like a really cool project.
I loved the ones that could have been an actual installation – a photograph with materials coming from them.
I’ll have to keep this in mind for a cool project for my photography class!
What if there were a way to insert something into a film camera into a digital camera?
I just came across this post today, and thought it was a spectacular idea. However, upon reading, I realize that this product was released on April Fools Day.
Although the product doesn’t actually exist, there was such a strong showing of support for the product that the company who ran the hoax – Rogge & Pott Design – is “looking into the possibilities”.
The idea is that a sheet extends where the film would normally be and when the camera takes an image the information is translated digitally to the memory in the canister.
There are a lot of cool things you can do with photography. As I mentioned I can’t wait to have the time to do some stop/motion animation. Also, I’ve been wanting to paint with light for a long time. It just requires the right tools, and some patience, and the ability to see things as a mirror. Check out this cool Batman photo by minamac88.
For those of you interested in this, here are some tutorials: DIYPhotography.net, Instructables, and Amateur Snapper. Most of the ones I’ve seen suggest using a flashlight, or a LED colored light. I thought it was interesting that Batman is done using a sparkler, which for many people, are readily accessible at this time of year.
These are some of the most awkward portraits I’ve seen.
If you haven’t discerned, these are photos of people upside down! It’s called Upside Downy Face by Bruton Stroube. There are many more photographs, each unique/funny in their own way. It also seems like he offered a photobooth for this type of photography. Check them out!
