[Pics] Explosive Cauliflower: A Lesson in Creative Photography

Don’t let me ever hear you say, “Man there just isn’t anything worth shooting anymore. It’s all been done before.” Cause if you do I’ll point you to artist Brock Davis and say, “If dude can make a shoot with nothing but creativity, imagination and cauliflower you have no excuses.” Brock recreates three famous explosions: The Hindenburg disaster, the atomic bombing of Nagasaki, and the Challenger disaster.

[Pics] From Enchantment To Down: The Demise of Disney Heroines

French photographer Thomas Czarnecki‘s series, ‘From Enchantment to Down’, has been called twisted by some but for me there’s more scintillating than a sinister dark fable. Thomas’s work depicts alternate endings for some of Disney’s most noted heroines to portray, what he calls, ‘the naive universe and the innocence of the fairy tales’ with ‘much darker reality that is as much part of our common culture’.

[Humor] Shtuff People Say to Photographers

I mean, seriously, if I hear “That’s a nice camera. You must be a good photographer,” one more time I may have to slay someone. See if any of this sounds familiar to you.

[Discussion] Pro or Amateur… Which one are you?

Framed: “There has always been the internal battle amongst artists in the industry of when we can officially call ourselves a “professional”. Stepping foot into a camera store or Costco and buying that DSLR with a kit lens and inserting a watermark on your image doesn’t necessarily mean that you are now a professional. Or does it? Are we a professional photographer when we start charging a certain amount for my service? Are we an amateur when a professional photographer thinks our work is below par?
