Photographer Olivia Locher, mocks some of the most ridiculous laws still in place in the United States with her new photo series, I Fought The Law. From bouncing pickles to kids with wild hair, Olivia leaves us with a satirical giggle. Check out all the other unbelievable laws.
It’s no secret that we creatives are often introverted, or simply don’t know the first thing about self-promotion. Thus there are thousands and thousands of brilliant talents out there that very few have discovered. I have been on a mission of finding such gems and helping them expose their work to the worldwide online photography and digital imagery communities. And today I would like to share some beautiful and fun images and inspiration from Spain with you.

Barbie) proves that she’s still got it at the age of 55 by landing the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition (technically a promotional cover-wrap for the American International Toy Fair). Even though this tongue-in-cheek video was primarily created for humorous reasons you still get a good glimpse behind the scenes with legendary photographer Walter Iooss.

After the film debuted, Nathan answered some of the audience’s questions. One of the most controversial questions asked was how race played a factor while shooting in a predominantly black neighborhood. [more]
Though you can read more about the Powershot G1X here (since the info was leaked early by Best Buy who shortly thereafter removed the page), the Canon T5 experienced no such leak.

Photographer Cara Phillips, based in Brooklyn, shot her series Ultraviolet Beauties by offering free portraits to strangers on the street. The only requirement was that they were willing to sit for a photograph under an ultraviolet light. The harsh UV lighting is intended to bring out every minuscule incongruity of the subject’s face.

The camera is currently for pre-order on their site for only $799, however Canon has not made any announcements for this camera.

Yay! You’re doing something creative.
We can all probably remember the moment when we first realized that we could create cool stuff. That moment when we looked at something we’d made from scratch and not only were we not disappointed by what we created, not only were other people impressed by what we created, but we actually liked what we’d done.

No AA’s? No problem! Late last year Neewer, a company previously bashed for making fake MB-D11 battery grips, released the TT850 speedlight (you may also find this same flash branded as the Godox Ving V850). While not offered by B&H, they can be found on eBay and Amazon, for around $100. Typically I wouldn’t get too excited about a third party product but there is a particular feature that sets the TT850 apart from its competitors and put it at the top of my list. [more]
