Vince Vaughn and Cast of 'Unfinished Business' Star in Hilarious Stock Photo Series

Vince Vaughn and Cast of 'Unfinished Business' Star in Hilarious Stock Photo Series

We have all come across terribly staged stock images in our careers, and I always cringe when searching simple keywords like "business" on sites like Getty or iStock. It comes with great pleasure to find Getty Images and Fox partnered up to create one of the funniest publicity stunts in preparation for the release of Vince Vaughn's new movie "Unfinished Business." Including cast members Vince Vaughn, Tom Wilkinson, Dave Franco, and others, the shots involve fake laughs and poorly photoshopped faces in each and every photo.

Instagram's Latest Weekend Hashtag Project Takes the Last Stab at Targeting Vine

Having been on Instagram ("IG") for over four years now, it's been incredible to see the evolution from a basic photo taking, filter adding iPhone application to the world's fastest growing social network.

This weekend, Instagram is taking it's last shot to finish them off and it makes me so very happy!esw3

Remembering Leonard Nimoy Through His Captivating Photography Work (NSFW)

Remembering Leonard Nimoy Through His Captivating Photography Work (NSFW)

Leonard Nimoy passed away this week at the age of 83. His long career and legacy will always be remembered in his portrayal of the iconic character "Spock" from the 1966 TV series Star Trek. With numerous film spin-offs and a resurgence to the 2009 blockbuster Star Trek as the half-emotionless Vulcan he was just as relevant today as he was 40 years ago. Though his film career was beyond fulfilling in its own right, his photography work is what will also stay with us for years to come.

This is How 'Modern Family' Shot Last Night's Episode with iPhones, iPads, and MacBooks

Last night's episode of "Modern Family" was both hilarious and very well filmed. Using nothing more than iPhones, iPads, and MacBooks, each character used FaceTime to interact with one another in a first-person selfie view. We are all familiar with various movies and television shows using iPhones to snap quick scenes here and there, but this episode went even further by using it as the basis of the entire episode; with genius I might add.

This time we look at the evolution of mobile shooting and the tech that brings us into a new era of photography. Looking all the way back to the first iPhone and the quality of image versus the newest flagship from Apple, the iPhone 6, it's remarkable how far we have come and it excites me to see where we can go from here.

Movies are something we can all thoroughly enjoy. Whether it be a hilarious comedy or an action adventure, they take us places we don't normally see or experience.

Photographer Claims Nike 'Jumpman' Logo Stolen from His Photo of Michael Jordan

As a designer I've always been fascinated with branding and the history of logo marks across many top-tier brands. From Apple to Adidas, every brand has its story, and some of which are disputed. That includes Nike and their iconic Michael Jordan "Jumpman" logo mark used on the wildly famous Air Jordan shoe line. Photographer Jacobus Rentmeester is now suing Nike in Oregon Federal Court for copyright infringement on the photo he shot in 1985 of the famed basketball star in which he says the logo was based.

Why I Don’t Care That I Lost 2,000 Followers on Instagram

Why I Don’t Care That I Lost 2,000 Followers on Instagram

During the last few weeks, Instagram has teased in your news feeds that they were removing and deactivating spam accounts. Their message mentioned it would ultimately result in a loss in the follower count on your profiles, as shown above.

The results have been widespread, but here are a few accounts to check in on as I give my thoughts on the whole thing.
