Paparazzi: Vice Stalks the Stalkers (language nsfw)

Steven Randolph and videographer Steven Perilloux give celebrity chasing paparazzi a taste of their own medicine in this short video Vice segment, "Pap Smear". I dare you to watch this video and not make some kind of comment. I'm curious to see if any of our readers will come to the defense of paparazzi. Is there a right way to do this kind of work? Let's hear your thoughts.Vice: "Paparazzi make a living by chasing down celebrities and shoving cameras in their faces and up their skirts. We decided to hunt a few down and give them a taste of their own disgusting medicine."

[Pics] Erotic Imagery in the Everyday (Safe for Work... I Think)

Blommers and Niels Schumm are a pair of Amsterdam-based photographers that have the ability to take photos with shifting perspectives. What may seem like boring stills at first takes on a whole new meaning during a second glance. Or if you are like me, a part of the soil minded, you see the eroticism first and only later see the hallway for what it is. These shots where taken for Baron Magazine where it was Blommers & Schumm intent to take everyday objects and make them appear subtly erotic.

[Pics] The Many Possible Faces of Hitler

Towards the end of World War II, concerns that Hitler would flee Germany with a new identity, spurred U.S. intelligence officials to have New York makeup artist Eddie Senz to produce various portraits of Hitler as he might have altered his appearance. Der Spiegel, a German news site, published the images in the 1990′s, but the U.S. National Archives in Washington DC have only recently released the photos with improved resolution. So, clever Fstopper readers, by looking at these shots... how do you think Eddie Senz produced these pre-Photoshop photo manipulations?

[News] A Camera that Produces Descriptive Text

Matt Richardson created a unique, prototype camera that actually describes scenes. "The Descriptive Camera works a lot like a regular camera—point it at subject and press the shutter button to capture the scene. However, instead of producing an image, this prototype outputs a text description of the scene. Modern digital cameras capture gobs of parsable metadata about photos such as the camera's settings, the location of the photo, the date, and time, but they don't output any information

[Pics] Lighting your Shots with Explosions

Joschi Herczeg and Daniele Kaehr are the two artist behind this small series entitled, "Explosion". They synced a camera with custom built detonators in order to capture explosions occurring in mundane surrounding, which seems to further the sense of stillness and peace in what is otherwise a chaotic process. I'm not sure if it's the aesthetics of these shots that gets me jazzed or the idea that I could use it as an excuse to blow things up while photographing. Either way, it got my attention.

[Video] "The Camera": Modest Gear, $50 and an Inspired Mind

"The Camera" is a haunting short film by Peter Lewis about a girl who finds an old polaroid camera that produces some unique and unexpected results. Using modest equipment: Canon Rebel T2i, Canon 50mm f/1.4, Tamron 28-200mm f/3.8-5.6 and a $50 budget, Peter knocked this film out while on vacation in Nags Head, North Carolina. Even more impressive is that this is Peter's first film and he produced the entire thing himself including, filming, sound, the musical score and post production. Well done!

[Video] Time Lapse of Aging Children

Frans Hofmeester is the father of 12 year old daughter Lotte and 9 year old son Vince. Frans has been filming each of them on a weekly basis since birth and has recently compiled that footage into short, time lapsed films. Many of us have seen this concept before but any one who starts a process and sticks it out for 12 years deserves to be seen.

[Video] Indoor Fireworks and Other Insane Acts at 2500fps

“Dumt & Farligt” is a Danish TV show were two guys are given free license to do what ever dangerous thing that comes to mind, in and around the home. But the best part is they they document it all with a Phantom Flex capturing every ludicrous detail at 2,500fps. See what happens when a lighter next to a candle is shot, a waterbed is filled until it pops, fireworks are set off in a living room, a bottle of red wine is microwaved and more.

[Pics] Striking Macro Shots of Bullet Impacts

My childhood was filled with shooting things and marveling at the aftermath but it took photographer Deborah Bay to capture the results for all to see. Deborah took striking shots (pun intended) of various caliber bullets, after being fired into bullet resistent Plexiglas. Armed with the support of professionals at the Public Safety Institute and her Contax 645 with a 120 macro lens, she captured a phenomenon few of us get to experience.
