The folks over at COOPH have released a “Best of DIY Smartphone Rigs” video that covers some truly wacky ideas. From a DIY ‘gimbal’ to a scary looking spinning rig, there are at least a few ideas here you definitely haven’t tried yet.
Trying to get into family photography, but haven’t had any luck? If you live in New York City, there’s a family that could use your help, just as long as you don’t mind being a “Mother’s Helper” on the side when you’re not taking pictures.
If you’ve got some money to burn and you insist on keeping your film safe and stylish at the same time, design firm RAMA WORKS has something for you. It’s called, simply enough, the RAMA WORKS film canister, and it’s probably the coolest, most expensive way to carry around your rolls of film. The Film […]
Photographer Max Siedentopf has a new project that examines one of the most boring types of photography: the passport photo. The series shows that even though passport photos need to be boring, the photo shoots themselves don’t.
Mixed Signals is a series of photographs exploring the entropy of digital media. Through the manipulation and corruption of high definition television broadcast signals, I force commercials, talk shows, and infomercials to break form at specific moments, subverting their message and capturing the painterly beauty of their decay and disintegration.
No-fly zones are increasing, regulations are tightening, and the situations where you can actually fly a drone in public spaces are dwindling. No bother — just use your smartphone and a really, really long selfie stick instead.
There’s a new Twitter account called “Dark Stock Photos” that has been amassing a huge following over the past month. It’s an ever-growing collection of “f***ed up stock photography”: images designed to be sad and somber that are often simply bizarre.
This series of photos shows salt crystallisation ponds found in Western Australia. I asked the pilot to remove the doors from the tiny airplane, and within 10 minutes of flying over and around this amazing landscape, I was trying my hardest to hold it all together - the noise, the shaking, the wind, and looking through my telephoto lens. And somehow I managed a bunch of beautiful, calm images.
I photographed bird heads at the London Natural History Museum, manipulated them into monster masks and added them to portraits of kids photographed in Berlin. The photographs were then printed onto canvas and painted with oil paint. The series is titled, 'Anthopocene'.
Credit where credit is due: this is a creative workaround. If you need a way to stabilize your footage, but you don’t have any kind of gimbal or steadicam to work with, why not just shoot the thing by hand-holding your drone? That must have been the thinking behind this video by a small Brazil-based […]
Well this is… interesting. It doesn’t seem like the very public failure of Google Glass—due, in large part, to the built-in camera—has deterred Google from pursuing wearable camera tech.
Plant Your Mac is a strange, and in some ways ingenious photo series. Created by artist Christophe Guinet (aka. Monsieur Plant), each photo of an Apple computer transformed into a living terrarium is meant to remind us of the conflict between technology and nature.
If you’ve noticed people on Instagram geotagging photos from the US or Europe as being taken in “Singapore, Singapore,” we have good news: you’re not going crazy. Apparently this is some sort of ‘hack’ that helps photos reach a larger audience and potentially go viral.
