The rumor is that March 2 will be the date for the 5D Mark II replacement. And Canon Rumors believes these to be the specs :22mp, 61pt AF, 100% VF, 3.2″ LCD ,Dual CF/SD Card Slots, $3500 USD. Far from being written in stone but the photos that turned up on their forums seems quite legit. For me, I hope to see something a little more impressive than what I’m seeing here or I may have to bite the bullet and step up to the 1D-X. [more]

Ironically, DigitalRev’s Kai Man Wong hits the streets of Hong Kong with well known analog street shooter Eric Kim. Kai and Eric end up kicking it old school with film cameras, Leica M6 & M2, and even try to get into the spirit of their camera’s time periods by dressing up. As always Kai’s video is humorous, entertaining and litered with nuggets of good to know info. [more]
Photographer Benjamin Von Wong is at it again! I’m starting to think he hates his models as he can’t seem to resist setting them on fire. All in the name of art, right? Well I guess we should be thankful, cause as usual the results are nothing short of freaking awesome. This isn’t photoshop work guys. Do I have you fired up yet? Then check out Benjamin’s latest BTS video. [more]
You will need to watch the video to believe these shots are of real people, rather than painted images. Alexa Meade completely warps reality by weakening the boundaries between our 3D world and that of a 2D painting. The 25-year-old artist whose work lies at the intersection of painting, photography, performance, and installation has this to say about her work. More…
My eye recently got pulled towards “Reflections”. A photo series by Tom Hussey, where he portrays the elderly as they reflect on their younger selves in the mirror. This is a wonderfully done series that gives you pause to think, about the passage of time and the lives we are living. Check out, Reflections.

At the age of 13, Moscow born photographer Oleg Dou was already playing with Photoshop but it wasn’t until 2005 that he bought his first professional camera.

See what kind of creativity is required to land the big fish.
Canadian photographer Hana Pesut put together a fun series entitled, “Switcheroo”. The incredibly simple concept, of photographing couples, having them switch clothing and then photographing them again, is surprisingly effective at getting you to do a double take. Each subject seems to take on an entirely new identity, not unlike their counterparts. Look inside to see what I mean.
Idaho photographer, Theron Humphery, woke up one morning and decided he needed to use photography to connect with folks and tell their story. So he set out across the US, meeting, photographing and recording a new person every day for a year. Theron’s project, aptly named “This Wild Idea”, is compelling and actually gives you the sense of meeting someone new. Learn more.
Is there anything we won’t point our lenses at? I really hope not other wise we wouldn’t have curious works, such as Mike Mission’s “Asphalt Archeology”. A photo series where Mike photographs artifacts he finds embedded in the streets of New York City. How many of these objects can you identify?
Providence, Rhode Island based photographer and mom, Rachel Hulin, got bored and it was her son Henry who flew to her rescue.
See her less than ordinary, baby portraits, in the full post.
Most of us started out the same. Having got our first camera the hunt for a subject/model ensued. And sooner or later your early muse comes along. Usually your girlfriend, boyfriend, child or even yourself. But Theron Humphrey may have found the perfectly balanced model in Maddie. A Coonhound with cat like equilibrium and a propensity for posing.
