Internet Calls For Flickr To ‘Be Awesome Again,’ Flickr Responds In Kind

A few short years ago, Flickr was unquestionably the largest and most popular image sharing site on the internet. It was clean, fast, easy, and social. In fact, it was one of the first websites to embrace the concept of social media. Flickr was on the cutting edge of the internet, and it was growing fast. But over the past couple of years, as websites like Tumblr, Facebook, 500px, smugmug, Instagram and Imgur have risen to fame and evolved [more]

Flickr Spotlight – Faceless Portraits

No, relax, you’re not going to see photos from recent zombie attacks (maybe next week?). Its just awesome looking faceless portraits. A face without eyes, mouth or a nose is not just weird, it also takes away any personality from the photographed person, which makes the photos even more special and unique. So, which is your favorite?

Using long exposures and creative light setups, they were able to record the results of their testing on their most technologically advanced space suits. And the result? [more]

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.

Trees are something that we’re used to seeing together, in groups, or at least a few feet away from each other. This is why pictures of lonely trees are so magical. It makes you stop for a second and think about the place, and even make your own story for the picture. Check out this set of amazing lonely tree images chosen out of thousands of pictures on Flickr.

[Pics] Flickr Spotlight – Underwater Wrecks

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.

[Pics] Flickr Spotlight #12 – The Beauty of Sunsets

This week I bring you some of the best sunset images found on Flickr. Some are what you expect them to be, but some are very unique and surprising – Check them out.
