[Pics] Classic Animal Photo Bombs

What better way to start your work week, after the long Thanksgiving vacation, than to ease in with some amusing animal photo bombs. You may have seen many of these before but they should still be good for a few mindless chuckles. Which got me thinking... with all of us photographers prolifically snapping away, at least some of us must have some hilarious photo bombs. If you do, please share them in the comments section .

[Video] A Creative, Inspirational Short by Tom Jenkins
Using Google Street View, stop motion animation, a 5D Mark II , everyday objects as props, great lighting and the power of the creative mind, director Tom Jenkins made what maybe my favorite short of the year, Address Is Approximate . The Story: A lonely desk toy longs for escape from the dark confines of the office, so he takes a cross country road trip to the Pacific Coast in the only way he can – using a toy car and Google Maps Street View. All screen imagery was animated - there are no screen replacements. Produced, animated, filmed, lit, edited & graded by Tom Jenkins ( TheoryFilms , Facebook ). Music by Cinematic Orchestra

So as you have now seen, Nikon Rumors just received the first images of the soon to be released Nikon D800 . As I studied the pictures I noticed that the command dial on the top was sitting a bit more sideways than it does on the D700. As I looked closer I noticed that Nikon seemed to have shaved down the left side of the camera a bit. You'll notice the buttons on the left side no longer have as much room. Do you guys see any other big differences?

Our friends over at Nikon Rumors just got their hands on images and specs of the new D800. This camera was supposed to come out weeks ago but was put on hold due to the flooding in Thailand. Once again they are saying this thing is going to be 36mp and shoot 1080p video. I am most excited to hear that it is going to have 60FPS video, even if it is only at 720. Head over to NR to read all of the other details.

Ok, sure there are some guys like Damon Winter , David Guttenfelder , Teru Kuwayama and Balazs Gardi who have succesfully capitalized off of the novelty of iPhone filters like Hipstamatic and Instagram and produced some compelling works. But I still maintain that the use of iPhone filters, for anything other than fun/novelty shooting, have very little to do with real photography. It's not the use of an iPhone that I find "cheap" (I think they are brilliant) but the use of cookie cutter filters in place of creativity and light comprehension. I think Sam Biddle over at Gizmodo said it best with... Read the full post here and let the comments fly.

[Pics] Odd Photos of Men Wearing Mustaches in Place of Their Hair

I know I'm always pushing for photographers to be creative but maybe this is going too far. Still these photos of men wearing their own mustaches in place of their hair has the same effect as a freak show carni at the grocery store, or a car crash... you can't help but stare. See all the "Where men meets moustaches meets hair meets moustaches meets hair meets MOUSTAIR" photos in the full post .
