Sometimes, the web does some weird things and we are blessed with a time-sucking gift from the Internet gods. Today's miracle comes from Web Developer Eric Andrew Lewis, who works for the New York Times. Eric's tool was made in his spare time and allows you to upload any photo you want and within seconds, spits out a pretty decent rendering of an emoji mosaic of the same image.
We love photography. We love gear. And we love this guy: New York City-based headshot photographer Peter "Shabang" Hurley. So when B&H put out this episode of, "What's in Your Bag?", featuring Peter and his kit, of course we were going to watch and post it with all the same excitement and exuberance that Peter himself puts into everything. Watch as Peter tears through his bag to reveal his set-up while running down what gear he uses and why.
The GoPro Hero 4 is a Marvel of human engineering. Waterproof, ultra wide angle, and incredible 4k footage all built into an amazingly small package. I would hate to live in a world without the GoPro; we would be without this amazing footage of a fish jumping out of the water just to bite some guys nipple.
Photographing The World Behind The Scenes Episode 5 is here. In last weeks episode (episode 4) we spent our last day in Iceland, and our photography guide went on a rant about photographers that is so hilarious, his rant has more views than the entire episode. In episode 5 we leave Siggy behind and fly to the opposite side of the world, New Zealand.
Every year we see the same old senior photos again and again with each year passing a new wave of train tracks, and in my case, corn fields. Though each year finding just a sample of photos that truly stand out and push the limits of where we can take the genre becomes even more difficult. Thanks to Brendan Batchelor Photography, we have what could be the very first session taken at local Missouri Taco Bell.
While capturing footage of a San Diego pier, photographer Tice Ledbetter drew the attention of a seemingly annoyed fisherman who then cast his line into the drone's prop. Not knowing what had occurred, Ledbetter flew the drone for half a mile before landing and didn't know how the fishing line got entangled until after he watched the footage.
Yesterday Time Magazine released a screenshot of its newest cover. The cover instantly started trending around the internet because the majority of people find it hilarious/just plain bad. Now, Time Magazine has actually joined in the fun and is sharing the hilarious memes created from that cover themselves.
I've always considered Time Magazine to be a pretty high quality publication. Getting your photograph featured on the cover would be a lifetime accomplishment for most photographers. That's why the current cover with Oculus Rift inventor Palmer Luckey is particularly shocking.
This week we released episode 4 of our behind the scenes series that covers our travel around the world. Siggy, our photography guide in Iceland, has become everyones favorite character in these videos and at the end of episode 4 he goes on a rant that is so hilarious that we decided it deserved its own video.

It is nothing new for celebrities to call on their fans to have a little fun with Photoshop. Our own Lee Morris challenged all of you a few months back with his many stages of beardedness. But when you are movie star Chris Pratt and you are known for your quirky, fast, often in-your-face style of humor, you should probably expect the internet to get a little weird with your request.
Going through a breakup can be hard. Especially when your significant other leaves you nothing but the dog. That’s exactly what happened to Rafael Mantesso. On his 30th birthday, his wife walked out leaving him with nothing else besides their bull terrier, Jimmy, whom the wife named after her favorite shoe designer, Jimmy Choo.
