Some Fun and Well Done Canon 550D Rebel t2i Test Footage

Short films are regular projects for Andres Overgaard.

In an effort to raise awareness of overfishing in the Atlantic Ocean, a coalition of photographers in Europe came together to work on a project known as FishLove. By showing how much these celebs love fish (enough to get naked with them!) they’re hoping to bring attention to the plight of many overfished species. While the photos are certainly attention grabbing, I think I much would have preferred video of naked celebrities trying to pose with live fish. In case you were wondering, this post is definitely NSFW and, while I’m at it, not safe for schools, either. [more]

Behind The Scenes… Gangnam Style!

My co-workers play it nonstop, my two daughters won’t stop singing along to it and the other night while at a local bar a group of very happy drunk people attempted to dance the signature pony-style dance.
