[Pics] Explosive Cauliflower: A Lesson in Creative Photography
Don't let me ever hear you say, "Man there just isn't anything worth shooting anymore. It's all been done before." Cause if you do I'll point you to artist Brock Davis and say, "If dude can make a shoot with nothing but creativity, imagination and cauliflower you have no excuses."

[Pics] From Enchantment To Down: The Demise of Disney Heroines
French photographer Thomas Czarnecki's series, 'From Enchantment to Down', has been called twisted by some but for me there's more scintillating than a sinister dark fable.

[News] Nikon’s 2011 Small World in Motion Competition: Changing the Way You Look at Breakfast
You'll never look at your breakfast the same way again, thanks to Anna Franz's 1st place winning entry of Nikon's 2011 Small World in Motion Competition.

[Discussion] Pro or Amateur... Which one are you?
Framed: "There has always been the internal battle amongst artists in the industry of when we can officially call ourselves a “professional”. Stepping foot into a camera store or Costco and buying that DSLR with a kit lens and inserting a watermark on your image doesn’t necessarily mean that you are now a professional. Or does it? Are we a professional photographer when we start charging a certain amount for my service? Are we an amateur when a professional photographer thinks our work is below par?
