Wrapping Up with Nude Photography (NSFW)

Self taught German photographer Klaus Kampert is no stranger to the female form as his work boast amazingly beautiful and tasteful female nudes. His main interest is people-photography, focussing on beauty, portrait, nudes and dance. Although his site is filled with great work, I pulled these shots from his "Wrapped" series because of it's use of a simple length of fabric to create unique poses.

High Speed Photography: Shooting Wigs Made of Water

High Speed Photography: Shooting Wigs Made of Water

Los Angeles-based husband, father, picture maker, cyclist, Ravens fan, photoshop geek (his words not mine), Tim Tadder, never lacks creativity (these are mine). His latest series has him whacking bald dudes in the head with water ballons to form these awesome water wig images. Tim gets the job done with the help of a laser (to pop the balloons maybe) and a sound trigger to capture the perfect moment in time. Nice work Tim.

Did you buy the Canon 40mm f/2.8 pancake lens, that our very own Jaron Schneider reviewed, only to be disappointed when it's autofocus stopped working? Well don't sweat it. Canon just released firmware 1.2.0 to rectify the problem. The downside is you need to be the proud owner of a Canon EOS 1D X, 5D III (at v1.1.3 or later) or a Rebel T4i/650D to install the upgrade. All others will need to send their lens into Canon Service. Eek!

Shooting Toys in Place of People: "ToysR'JustLikeUs"

Shooting Toys in Place of People: "ToysR'JustLikeUs"

Too often I find myself frustrated when I want to shoot but I don't have access to a model. Like many photographers I get hung up on the idea that I need to have the professional model, the studio, the stylist, the MUA and when I don't have those things I render myself incapacitated. Not a problem for Santlov and his series ToysR'JustLikeUs, where toys are depicted living our lives and loves. Check out these shots I pulled that show toys engaged in photography.

Playboy Photo Shrunk Down to the Size of a Hair

Playboy Photo Shrunk Down to the Size of a Hair

Singapore scientists have shrunk a portrait of Swedish Playboy model Lena Soderberg down to the width of a human hair. Measuring a mere 50 micrometres across the print was made with a device that can produce colour images of up to 100,000 dots per inch. The image used by a team from the Agency for Science, Technology and Research originated in a 1972 issue of Playboy and is commonly used for testing printing techniques. I know there is a joke in here somewhere and I invite you to drop it in the comments below.
