If you read the blog then you should know by now that I am completely fascinated by photography, but nothing that we can create can be as spectacular as the beauty that surrounds us in nature. One photographer that captures that beauty is Anton Jankovoy. His images is so surreal and vibrant. Most of his work consists of photographs taken of the Himalayas, each with its own unique take on such a magnificent sight. Here is ...

I’m sure you’ve all seen the amazing close range photography known as macro photography. Some of my favorite macro images are those of close up water droplets. But how do they take these amazing photographs? Well, this video demonstrates the steps that were taken in order to achieve these perfect shots of dancing ink. The images are the result of a joint collaboration between the creative studio Dentsu, with photographer Linden Gledhill. They created these ‘paint sculptures’ ...

There are a lot of photo-manipulators out there but today’s feature is an artist from Brooklyn, NY called Matt Wisniewski. Matt is a collage artist, he takes two different things and creates a harmony between the two, in this case he brings portraits of people and connects them with photos of nature and paintings. Simple masking techniques take place but his placement of these photos is truly unique, it almost feels natural that a rock grows ...

Months ago we posted about the Flying Japanese girl and this time around we are featuring the Flying Chinese man called Li Wei. Like the Japanese girl, Li Wei’s defying gravity photos are not computer generated, he uses ropes, mirrors and a lot of acrobatics to capture these amazing photos. The only use of the computer is to remove those wires, nothing else is altered, although some of his other works rely on photo manipulation, these ...

Profesional photographer Sacha Goldberger set up a wacky photo shoot having Darth Vader and a grandpa character called Dark Papouka. Though the relationship of these two are unlikely, the idea and execution are great. The photos have the two characters playing together and to some extend Papouka seems like a real grandpa teaching his grand son lessons of life. One thing for sure he is not preparing him to rule the galaxy. I really like the execution ...

Art usually presents us with a white open canvas and we are given the opportunity to do whatever. Photography on the other hand is using what is out there and make it prettier and I believe that is challenging. One unique photographer who combines art and photography (arguably the same thing) is Heinz Maier. Water photography has always impressed me but the work of this photographer is really amazing and easily becomes more so as he ...

These are not examples of smart photo-manipulation or vector art. These are actual photographs! So the work you see before you is a series of images taken to depict alphabets in everyday situations …. and they spell out the word “Alphabets”. This is a perfect example of how a photographer’s creativity can create a completely new perspective on a well practiced theme, Typography. The shots were taken by Bela Borsodi, and she used negative space to portray ...

I love photography. I’ve been addicted to my cameras ever since my first Polaroid. Well, its been over 15 years since then and I’d like to think that I’ve advanced my skills. One think is for sure, my cameras have definitely advanced and so has their size. So finding the right camera bag is really important. I’ve had at least 10 different camera bags over the years but my favorite has got to be ...

Theres something about vintage Vogue covers that I love so much but just cant explain. I guess its the fact that everything seems more glamorous in the 50s and 60s. Theres this subtle elegance that seeps through all the vintage photographs. The models weren’t all carbon copy plastic surgery drones. They were natural, beautiful, unique. So I decided to collect the Vogue covers and showcase them in the blog. The more covers I found, the more I fell ...

Inspiration is always there, but it is quite amazing and funny at the same time when a cartoon character is actually inspired by a nose. Now, I was always found by the looks of the Teen Mutant Ninja Turtles, slow turtles that are super heroes but never imagined this! While all of this defies reality, did you ever consider your nose having the shape of their heads? as weird as it sounds, this ongoing open project ...

Star Wars is a franchise that needs no introduction, it has been milked into all sorts of merchandise and frankly I don’t mind, you can have a sloppy vader plush and still love it. The first impression a person gets from any form of entertainment is actually the cover, even though we are told not to judge a book by its cover, movie posters always give us a glimpse of whats to come, call it ...

I just love this set of photos by photographer Qi Wei. I’m not so sure if I’d call this an explosion, it looks more like a dissection of flowers or just an anatomy of flowers. There isn’t much explanation to say here but as you can see, he took flowers and aligned the little bits and pieces flat on the ground and created an outstanding work of art. These make great posters for living rooms. The ...

In the real world, a makeover usually involves getting a trim and a slight hair color change maybe a shade or two. But not in celebrity land! These celebrities look like completely different people, some for the better a few for the worse, but one thing they have in common is that they look like they transformed, with a 180 degree change. Some of the makeovers are from completely different hairstyles or a huge amount of ...

Take a look into the homes of top name celebrities and designers like Donatella Versace, Giorgio Armani, and Fergie among others. Its no surprise that the show MTV Cribs is so successful, because when musicians, actors and athletes are so willing to open their doors to lead us through their homes, we are only too happy to throw a glance into the world of the rich and famous. The American photographer Douglas Friedman, who prefers shooting ...

Elizabeth Taylor was a legend in every sense. She was a symbol of beauty, fashion, glamour, and extravagance. Her recent passing in March at the age of 79 marked the end of one of Old Hollywood’s greatest figures. She was the epitome of grace and femininity. With her signature purple colored eyes, she ruled in cinema history. So to pay tribute to such an amazing icon, V Magazine, turned to Kate Winslet for their 73rd Issue, ...
