By now you’ve probably formed a clear cut opinion about Instagram. It’s the program we either love to hate, or just plain love! If there was such a thing as Instagram etiquette, or the ‘right’ way to Instagram, this is probably as close to anything we’ve seen so far. New York City filmmaker Casey Neistat decided to illustrate a few points. He does drop one word of profanity so be cautious if you’re in a sensitive area. [more]
You know how sometimes you get that annoying flare when taking a photo? I mean yeah, sometimes it’s artsy, but other times it’s just annoying.

In an attempt to create the best camera review video the interweb has ever seen, FCTN (Fiction) put the Phantom Miro up against Gallagher, 80′s icon and nemesis to watermelons the world over. There’s enough 80′s power, shirtless old men, whacky hair, glitter and splattering in this video that some of you may confuse this for a Richard Simon’s workout tape. But be certain, Phantom Miro + Gallagher = you’re all going to watch this, love it and share it. [more]

Most of us have seen, either on TV or in person, the characters that dress up in Hollywood, CA as celebrities and super heroes hoping to make a few bucks as a sidewalk attraction. Photographer Nicolas Silberfäden has taken it upon himself to shoot a series of these unemployed “entertainers” as a statement of the current economic crisis that much of America is experiencing. I must say, this sure is a sad crowd of super heroes. Super sad Enjoy! [more]
In this clip of an alternate take of the swordfight where Indi shoots the villian, we see the scene being choreographed in a compeltely different way than what went on to make the final film. Ironically enough, this scene is easily one of the most iconic segments from that series. This brings to mind all sorts of speculative questions; What was the original scene written to be? Why was it changed? Why was this version cut? Did
Han Indi really shoot first? [more]
This past week I have been bombarded with this poppy, silly and downright hilarious song. 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. If you haven’t seen South Korea’s PSY‘s quirky ‘Gangnam Style‘, then you must be living under an interweb rock. [more]
For his series, Mugshot Doppelgänger, artist Michael Jason Enriquez took mugshots of some of today’s most well-known celebrities and matched them to 1920s mugshot doppelgängers, changing the names to help identify the celebrity pictured. It’s an interesting project and quite fun to see… [more]
I don’t know what GoPro cameras are made out of that makes seagulls like them so much, but once again a seagull stole a GoPro – this time in San Francisco.

‘Nick’ poses as a a team member for a group titled ‘Photoshop Request’. For every request, the unsuspecting victim doesn’t actually get what they intended.

Chris Buck‘s work often has a humorous side to it. He has an upcoming book called “Presence: The Invisible Portrait.” In it you will find environmental portraits of celebrities. However, the celebrities themselves are hiding from the camera, nowhere to be seen. In the same vein, these celebrity portraits are also missing the celebrities. They are from Buck’s series called Isn’t. Which of these lookalike portraits could have fooled you? [more]
In this humorous parody of network TV’s coverage of political races, PhotoshopWorld released this video that features several negative campaign ads that slam the likes of Scott Kelby, Pete Collins, Matt Kloskowski, and RC Concepcion.

Let me start out by saying this is not a personal attack on any particular individual, nor on the photographer that created these images, Soren Dahlgaard. I get that art lies, at the very least, in the eye of it’s creator. However, sometimes I run across stuff online that is labeled “art” and it makes me just shake my head. Enough ranting, here is one series that I stumbled upon that gave me said feeling, and I wanted to share some of this photographers dough head “art” with you. Enjoy! (I mean, if you can I guess) [more]
Considered to be one of the “most respected Instagram artists”, Flam Wenders works with taking Instagram photos of sushi, girls making the duck face, and street signs put him in a class
