Photographing Men in "Half-Drag"

Photographing Men in "Half-Drag"

NYC based photographer Leland Bobbé has been getting a lot of exposure for his not only gender but mind bending series, "Half-Drag". Leland attempts to capture men with their female alter egos at the same time and in camera.

Behind the Scenes of David Guetta's "Titanium"

My main man in Montreal, photographer Benjamin Von Wong, sent me two videos last week. The first is this great peek bts of David Guetta's "Titanium" video. And the second is of Ben kicking, burning and drenching the Silicon Power Rugged Armor A80 to see if it really is as indestructible as it claims. It's worth noting that this is a product Ben found and wanted to have fun with and that he is not sponsored by the product's company. You can see his torture test here. Thanks for these Ben.

Fun Portraits of Portraits

I stumbled across an older post today that features English student Lisa Roux, who photographed her subjects while they wore their own portraits.

Montreal-based photographer Benoit Paillé is turning out some interesting landscape photography using a 1x1 meter, suspended, glowing square. And it's worth noting that Benoit's images are not Photoshopped. Benoit Paillé: "I hate lanscape. So I decide to stage my own vision of lanscape. I create an art light installation for poetic space/time purpose...

From Video to Animated Gif Portraits

From Video to Animated Gif Portraits

Here's a trippy little video by Belgian artist/photographer Pierre Debusschere in collaboration with creative studio 254forest for Under/Current Magazine. For some this may give you a bit of inspiration. For others it will give you something to complain about comment on. But for me I personally like the animated portrait gifs that come out of this video as the 5D Mark III's multiple exposure feature has had me on a multiple exposure/light layering exploratory kick lately.
