Insert Here: Sensual and Artistic Portraits of Sex Toys [NSFW]

Insert Here: Sensual and Artistic Portraits of Sex Toys [NSFW]

Sam Kaplan, a New York-based product and still life photographer, was inspired to create a series of photographs of an object that is often enjoyed in the bedroom rather than on a gallery wall. Sam decided to change all of that, and his series 'Insert Here' takes the taboo and transforms it into an exploration of line, form, and color: Dildart, if you will. It goes without saying that you might want to be careful where you open this post.

Gravity Defying Ads Shot In A Simple DIY-able Set

Gravity Defying Ads Shot In A Simple DIY-able Set

Peter Lundstrom shot the look-book for Courtrai Apperal in a featureless room that they built out of 5 basic walls and painted them all white for one look, and all black for the other. The final shots look great and leave the viewer looking at the image for a few extra seconds, which hopefully leaves them remembering the clothing a bit better than another brand with a model standing straight up. Below are some of the shots before they were cropped tight for the look-book as well as a video showing how they built the set and shot the book. Enjoy!

Fstoppers Exclusive: How Marek Glaser Made the Insane BMW M5 Bullet Commercial

What does it take to turn a blue BMW M5 into a bullet? A little of this, and a little of that, but mostly it takes a team of talented individuals with a dream and the know-how. With a limitless imagination, impeccable understanding of light and meticulous attention to detail, photographer/director Marek Glaser and Big Block digital productions took the imaginary and made it reality.

Super Sad: Super Heroes and Celebrities From The Walk Of Fame

Super Sad: Super Heroes and Celebrities From The Walk Of Fame

Most of us have seen, either on TV or in person, the characters that dress up in Hollywood, CA as celebrities and super heroes hoping to make a few bucks as a sidewalk attraction. Photographer Nicolas Silberfäden has taken it upon himself to shoot a series of these unemployed "entertainers" as a statement of the current economic crisis that much of America is experiencing. I must say, this sure is a sad crowd of super heroes. Super sad :( Enjoy!

Human Mosaics, Fractals And Collages

Human Mosaics, Fractals And Collages

Photographer Claudia Rogge from Dusseldorf, Germany has certainly developed a definitive style for her work. Claudia creates large mosaics, fractals and collages of subjects and scenes which she composites (sometimes even sloppily) in post. I find it to be a solid concept, and think we will see much more of this type of photography to come in the next few years. I can surely see this sort of thing having a place in commercial and advertising photography, what do you think? Is this a concept and style that has a future? Enjoy!

Crazy Awesome Black And White Portraits

Crazy Awesome Black And White Portraits

Russian photographer, Alexander Khokhlov, hailing from Moscow, has created a brilliant series of B&W "beauty-eque" portraits. I wish I knew who the MUA was so I could give her/him credit, because they did a friggin INCREDIBLE job on this shoot, whoever it was. I really love everything about these shots and it is the kind of series that pushes me to think outside of the box and find something to do that hasnt been seen before. Great job Alexander (and crew). Enjoy!

Photographer Emmanuelle Brisson's Fine Art of Breasts (NSFW)

 Photographer Emmanuelle Brisson's Fine Art of Breasts (NSFW)

We've all seen breasts before, however in her series, French photographer Emmanuelle Brisson offers images that are an example of penultimate feminism. The titles are what bring De La Sensation together. As the startling photographs deliver a powerful message of women as "things." No matter the guise of society or action, Brisson's images argue that it is all driven by sexual objectification.

Are The Interior Photographer's Days Numbered? IKEA Says Yes

Are The Interior Photographer's Days Numbered?  IKEA Says Yes

In my opinion, one of the most difficult fields of photography falls on the shoulders of interior photographers. If you've ever tried to photograph a well designed interior space you know how tough it can be. Furniture superstore IKEA produces more than 208 million catalogs a year, and over 12% of those photographs are not even photographs at all. IKEA has found a way to produce compelling digital renders of their rooms that look exactly like naturally lit photographs.

Compelling Complexion: Portraits of Albinism

Compelling Complexion: Portraits of Albinism

Since 2009 Brazilian Photographer Gustavo Lacerda has been shooting subjects of the Albino persuasion to create a beautiful and compelling portrait series of Albinism. I really love how the skin tones, colors and backgrounds all blend together, which provide a smooth and calm effect to each of these images. Im not sure what the intent of the series was or how it came about, but I am definitely a fan and would love to see more someday soon. Enjoy!

Major Controversy Over "Victims Of Beauty" Photo Series

Major Controversy Over "Victims Of Beauty" Photo Series

Bulgarian Magazine, 12 Mag, has sure been rufflin' up some feathers over a piece they ran in June entitled "Victims of Beauty". Photographer Vasil Germanov along with MUAs Daniela Avramova and Slav have been making international headlines along with "12" for depecting models beaten, bruised and cut. Personally, I love the series and I think the artistry is beautiful, especially on the account of the MUAs...
