LG Unveils New Ultra-Stable Chicken Cam

Aside from resolution and low light capability, most phones now offer some sort of Automatic Image Stabilization. The technology works by either moving the sensor or lens to counteract unwanted movement before the image is converted to digital information.While some companies struggle to communicate how the image stabilization operates, LG has found a hilarious alternative to technical jargon.

When Was the Last Time You Screwed Up a Shoot?

We’re all human and we all screw up. Though, as Photographers,  its not always noticeable to those around us. Of course we still notice, whether at the shoot, or after while we’re reviewing our images. Here I’ve collected a bunch of screw up stories from some friends so that maybe next time you can think of these and not feel so bad. [more]

Fashion Week Gets Pranked by Jimmy Kimmel

Fashion Week in New York is coming to an end today, and is largely considered the Grammys for the fashion forward and fashion photographers of the industry.

Sarcastic Posters Show the True Life of a Photographer

Certainly you’ve seen them on Facebook and other social media avenues before. I’m talking about those oversimplified “I’m an artist, I don’t work for free” posters that photographers always have the desire to post and share. The people over at Shoppe Designs have decided that perhaps those are too polite, and built some with a little more sass and attitude.

This LG Commercial Shows How Having a Good Screen Can Make a Difference

As photographers and videographers, we always hate when people look at our work on a crappy-uncalibrated-small screen with bad colors. With their most recent commercial, LG proved how having a great calibrated screen can make a huge difference. With their new 84″ ultra high definition TV they made people believe they were actually looking out a window. What happens next is absolutely hilarious. [more]

This Camera Phone Ad Is Hilarious, But Sadly Not Too Far From Reality

If you have been to any sort of performance in the last few years, I think you’ll recognize some of the people in this commercial. Crowds who take pictures with their smart phones, holding them up to reveal a sea of illuminated rectangles, often distracting an artist or blocking the views of others.

Another Step in the Evolution of Wedding Photo Booths

It wasn’t that many years ago when our very own Lee Morris took me on one of his wedding gigs and totally opened my eyes to what wedding photography could be. I had this idea in my head that weddings were boring, cheesy and a photographic cinch to shoot. But when Lee introduced me to the idea of setting up killer seamless white photo booths at receptions, I realized they could be [more]

Why Quadcopters and Weddings Sometimes Don’t Mix

In the past year, we’ve seen some pretty amazing advancements in camera/drone technology. Quadcopters like the DJI Phantom are incredibly affordable and seem very easy for anyone to master. When shooting a commercial earlier this year, I had a similar mentality. “Why don’t I buy a cheap quadcopter and strap a GoPro to it. How hard can it be?”

As it turns out, even small drones can be used with disastrous results. [more]

Photographer Asks You to “Steal My Photograph!”

Photographer Lukas Renlund shares with us the second installation in his “Steal My Photograph” series. I was very impressed with this idea when I posted his Copenhagen Exhibit last August but Lukas has added a humorous new twist to his Barcelona installation by hiding a GoPro camera behind his photos to capture the reactions of the unsuspecting, would-be-thieves. I got a chance to catch up with Lukas and asked him a few of the questions that have been on everyone’s mind. [more]

Korean Photoshop Page Is…Odd…To Say The Least

A Facebook page out of Korea, We Do Photoshop is somewhat of a…well I don’t how to describe this exactly. After looking at the page, words have become difficult to muster on how to properly explain in detail what’s going on over there.

It seems that the Facebook page (with over 36,000 thumbs up) was put together around the end of June so that people can upload their photos and request free photo manipulations. [more]

Do Superheroes Have Myspace Angles? Introducing the Super Selfie.

The dreaded Myspace Angle, a condition that has plagued countless of self portraits for years. The extended armed and high angled photos still clutter up our Facebook newsfeeds long after Myspace whittled down to music bands and glitter graphics. Is it safe to assume that even Superheroes take the time out of their busy ‘saving humanity’ schedules to take a selfie? Apparently they do. [more]
