We may bicker over camera brands and techniques but you’re reading this because like me, you love this industry. [more]

What do you get when you take Hollywood’s greatest gun toting heroes and villains and Photoshop out the guns?
Hilarious positive encouragement from action stars.
A Polish man proposed to his girlfriend by creating a fake horror movie trailer. Not just fake, but actually pretty good. The video was made by combining snippets of scenes from “The Grey,” “The Bourne Ultimatum” and “Essential Killing” and dramatic music to give that finish touch. His unsuspecting girlfriend went to the movie theatre with 2 of her friends, not knowing that night will change her life. Seeing her face when she realizes what’s going on is priceless.
Today the NY Post published a pictorial which reveals the one remaining entertainment industry that was pure and honest with nothing to hide, the adult entertainment industry. Who would have thunk it?! You mean the girls starring in pornographic films across the world may be augmented, made-up or skewed in their appearance? [more]

Here’s a little cinematography humor to brighten up your lazy Sunday. From the people over at Autodesk and filmmaker Jeremy Hunt comes a coming of age story of a dude. A dude who just wants to go about his business and a visual effects editor who ruins said dude’s day. We all know the importance of ‘getting it right in camera’, but this is what happens when post-processing runs amok. [more]
So I was browsing through Facebook the other day and saw a single shot out of this series. I thought it was a pretty funny shot and clicked on it only to find it was a part of a series Daniel did. I met Daniel in a awesome photography group called Creativos and loved his work. I was really intrigued by the series, loved the story it told with the humor and slight side of depression. [more]

Greek law enforcement officials are facing investigation after ‘allegedly’ airbrushing out a black eye and face lacerations that the police may or may not have given to a young man and his three other bank robber friends.
Greek government officials have admitted to some photo alterations, but they would really insist you believe that it was done only to make the robbers more noticeable in public. It has nothing to do with making them look like half a Japanese Anime character. [more]

Rob, spurred on by a series of bizarre coincidences, ended up doing some research on his new camera, only to find that it had not only been used, but used somewhat extensively by DigitalRev to create a review.

PocketWizard is to radio transceivers what Kleenex is to tissues. PW’s have become the industry standard and the benchmark which all other radio transceivers/transmitter & receiver combos are measured. This week PocketWizard introduced the G-Wiz Vault Storage Solution… What is it? To me it would appear to be the fancy name for a lunch box…

About the shirt Ratcliff said, “We don’t take ourselves too seriously around here… occasionally we seem to find ourselves in embarrassing positions with our tripods, so we thought it best to consult the hallowed ancient tome of the Camera Sutra and make a t-shirt out of it.” Read on to see all the named positions.

Here at Fstoppers we love sharing behind the scenes photo shoots with our readers so we can all learn and grow together. Every so often we come across one that while it could have been executed better is still worth sharing. Such is the case with the recent commercial shoot for the McPhee Inflatable Unicorn Horn for cats. I can gather from the video that it is best to shoot unicorn’ed cats against a white seamless, using Pocket Wizards to fire your lights and a number of cat petting assistants. Big props go out to the audio mixer on the video as well. Enjoy! [more]
