I truly believe that soccer is probably one of the only things in the world that is 100% international, 100% border-less. All you need is a ball, thats all. [more]

No, relax, you’re not going to see photos from recent zombie attacks (maybe next week?). Its just awesome looking faceless portraits.

Flickr Spotlight – Light Stenciling Is The New Light Painting

We all know the classic way to light paint photos, usually with a flashlight or a similar light source, but recently a new technique came to life: Light Stenciling. The idea is simple – instead of moving a flashlight in the frame to create shapes, you use a computer display (iPads, iPhones, Laptops) to add characters and items to the image by placing a graphic on top of a black background. The results are really awesome, so check out some of the best stencils we could find on Flickr.

Dean Fleischer-Camp, who brought you ‘Marcel The Shell‘ (together with Jenny Slate), decided to make a funny video showing how ridiculous people look like when posing for a picture. All he did was taking a short video of his friends posing for what they thought is going to be still photos. Genius. Scary how ridiculous we all look when posing for a picture.

Underwater photography is a kind-of-rare form of photography. Its way less accessible for most of us, as most of us cant afford the super expensive DSLR underwater housing, and Intagram will probably fail in this mission as well. Most of underwater shots we get to see are of nice looking fish, or a cool coral reef – but this time we’re bringing you something even cooler – the best underwater shots of sunken wrecks: ships, planes and cars.
