Photographer and Boulder, Colorado resident Shawn Heinrich, has been getting a lot of attention recently ever since he first posted the image above to his his Facebook page last week, an amazing shot of a whale shark snooping around a small yacht.
Back in 2010, Lee Morris and the fantastic folks at FStoppers.com set out to prove that great images don’t necessarily have to come from expensive sources, as Morris conducted an editorial style fashion shoot, capturing images through the use of an iPhone 3Gs. The results, while fairly controversial, proved that creativity, ingenuity and a dose of skillful-flare can go a long way in compensating for less-than-stellar capturing devices.
If you ever wondered what would happen if one were to digest 35mm film, look no further. A duo of creative-minded art students from the London’s Kingston University took it upon themselves to conduct the aforementioned experiment for their final project in a photography class, essentially making themselves a human camera.
Living Portraits: An Incredible Example of Artistic Expression – Enormous Prints Made by Grass and Photosynthesis
Every now and again, true testaments of creativity and artistic delivery emerge and reaffirm what some outside the box thinking and expressive ingenuity can yield. The latest realization of this comes at the first glance of Heather Ackroyd and Dan Harvey’s living grass portraits, resoundingly falling into the category of absolutely breathtaking.
After shooting a traditional music video for this single “Rivers and Homes,” Grammy nominated and Brooklyn-based producer Jonathan J.Views Dagan ended up with over 2,000 still images from the production – shots which were then printed out and distributed to 300 fans at a tour in Israel, resulting in the foundation for a re-animated and incredibly creative stop motion version of the initial music video shown above.
Usually, most skateboard shorts and team showcases fall under a general visual recipe, choosing to focus almost entirely on the skater and his or her abilities, rather than add elements that may distract the viewer from the video’s purpose. So, it goes without saying that when something along the lines of filmmaker Russell Houghten‘s short entitled Open Horizon (shown above) comes along, it’s refreshing.
It only takes a few minutes of roaming around the interwebs to encounter some fantastic displays of creativity incorporating the use of light painting or Matrix-esque bullet-time wizardry to produce unique, and more often than not, compelling visual imagery.
With that being said, however, it’s rare to see both techniques used simultaneously – a visual feat Richard Kendall was able to accomplish in the video above. Kendall lined-up 96 cameras, each containing 30 second sequential exposures and, as he calls it, “a lot of running around with lights.” The results are nothing less than stunning, take a look.
An Illusive Use of LEGOS – Valentino Fialdini’s Tilt-Shift Photography Makes Lego Brick Rooms Look Like Full-Size Gallery Space
At first glance, most would be inclined to believe that the images shown in this post were nothing more than empty and open spaces, found either in a museum, art gallery or some other creative institution, with sunlight flowing freely through its windows. But, it’s when you dive a bit deeper into each and every one of these illusive shots from Brazil-based photographer, Valentino Fialdini, is that the perceived reality is not what it seems.
