If you’ve ever had to photograph a large group of people, you probably understand how difficult it can be to capture every single person looking great. Imagine if that group photo was made up of 12 of the worlds richest Billionaires! That’s what photographer Michael Prince did when he had to photograph the cover of Forbes Magazine during the 400 Summit on Philanthropy back in June. [more]
We’ve seen behind the scenes videos of how projection mapping can be used artistically and commercially. Tobias Bjorkgren takes on a slightly different angle and applies the concept to his latest fashion shoot. The use of projection allows him to stand his models in front of varying scenes without having to leave the studio. To see the final images, check out his blog. What do you think of the effect?

There are hundreds of thousands of photographers out there right now. Many follow the basic lighting rules, bland same old poses and boring shots. Then you have the photographers who absolutely just blow you away. Wyn is one of them. After running across him on a pinterest page, I searched for more of his work and found his blog. After looking through it for quite some time, I decided to shoot him a message on Facebook in hopes to ask him a few questions. [more]
There is just something about portraits of people looking out the window – doesn’t matter if its in a building, train or car. Its something we do all the time, but never really pay attention to it. This is why seeing these awesome images capturing this quick-everyday-moment is really great. It makes you think. What are they seeing? What are they thinking of? are they happy? sad? maybe waiting for someone?.
Update: Warner Brothers has asked us to remove the images.
Some images have surfaced on Imgur that show some white backdrop, studio images taken for the release of the original Dark Knight.

Photographer Alexander Gardner set out to do at the Antietam battlefield in 1862 what no other photographer before him had attempted. He wanted to to document a battlefield before the dead had been cleared away. These were taken before newspapers could print photos. But not long after, the photos were publicly exhibited and for a culture that had never seen the morbidity of war, it must have been shocking. [more]

I must say, this sure is a sad crowd of super heroes. Super sad Enjoy! [more]

Originally he set out to win a Pulitzer prize, but in the end found himself with a life changing experience. [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]
Elena Kalis’s underwater photos are incredible. I have seen many photographers try this and it just never seems to turn out right.
