Photo Series Uses Laundry Machines to Frame Colorful and Abstract Shots

Photo Series Uses Laundry Machines to Frame Colorful and Abstract Shots “Inspirational” probably isn’t the first word that comes to mind when you think about laundry, but for photographer Yvette Meltzer, that’s exactly what it turned out to be. Shirts strung over a clothesline, laundry being sloshed around with suds, and most recently, piles of clothes being tossed about inside the confines of a dryer. It all started on a cold February day in the windy city. With her camera in hand, she started searching around finding laundromats to use as her unusual subjects. Going through a number of different subjects throughout the laundromat, Meltzer...

Beautiful Macro Photo of a Hummingbird’s Details

Beautiful Macro Photo of a Hummingbird’s Details In the world of macro photography, the speedy hummingbird isn’t the easiest subject. With a little patience, however, you could nail a shot that reveals details you normally can’t see when tracking the bird with your eye. That’s what photographer Chris Morgan was able to do on a recent vacation in Bosque De Paz, Costa Rica (a 3,000 acre biological reserve). After being tempted by the birds “to the point of madness,” Morgan slowed things down, got close, and snagged the gorgeous close-up above of a Green-Crowned Brilliant hummingbird posing for a portrait. Here...

This Timelapse of Melting Ice Cream is Strangely Beautiful

This Timelapse of Melting Ice Cream is Strangely Beautiful Have you ever wondered what melting ice cream looks like in slow motion? Probably not. The cold creamy substance is best in its frozen state, and we try so desperately to keep it that way before it turns into a soupy mess, either in our bowl or down our arms. But through the wonders of timelapse you can experience the oozing art-like glory of melted ice cream, sans hand towel and stain remover: Timelapse has a way of making just about anything beautiful. Perhaps it’s in being able to watch life go by a little slower; a longer moment to observe and appreciate the changes. Whatever...

Dreamy Music Video Makes Excellent Use of 360° GoPro Rig for Psychedelic Visuals

Dreamy Music Video Makes Excellent Use of 360° GoPro Rig for Psychedelic Visuals The 360 GoPro rig video is nothing new, but most of the time it’s used to create footage that is likely to induce vomiting… or at the very least a minor headache. Wild Child’s new music video for the song ‘Rillo Talk’ is different. Created by director Aaron Brown, the video uses the little planet effect to fluidly transition between dreamy, psychedelic scenes that perfectly match the song’s feel. As to what that feel is, The Phoblographer quotes Brown as saying the song has a “stoned on the couch day-dreaming in Austin while watching golf on a...

Artist Replaces the Sky with Coffee Swirls to Create a Caffeine Addict’s Dream World

Artist Replaces the Sky with Coffee Swirls to Create a Caffeine Addict’s Dream World Artist Flora Borsi — whose fantastic Photoshop skills have made their way onto PetaPixel several times in the past — loves coffee… so much so that she set out to use her skills as a photographer and digital artist to create a “coffee universe.” “Have you ever noticed how beautiful Coffee can be?” writes Borsi by way of description on Behance. “I was wondering about the basic rules of Nature. Our common sight of the World. I’ve created something that is different than what you’ve seen so far. This is my Coffee Universe.” And...

Video: Octopus Grabs Onto Diver’s Camera and Starts Removing Pieces

Video: Octopus Grabs Onto Diver’s Camera and Starts Removing Pieces Underwater videographer Joel Kistel was filming some footage for reef-conservation nonprofit TISIRI earlier this month when he ran across a rather curious and sneaky octopus who nearly cost Kistel $ 15,000. The ‘altercation,’ which is captured in the video above, happened when Kistel encountered the same octopus from a previous dive and trained his camera on it in the hopes that he would capture some interesting footage. Instead, the octopus took an interest in his gear. So much so, in fact, that it attached itself to Kistel’s underwater camera housing and surreptitiously...

Cheap Photography Hack: Add a Neutral Density Filter to a Fisheye Lens

Cheap Photography Hack: Add a Neutral Density Filter to a Fisheye Lens Fisheye lenses are infamous for shooting “hot”—the lens captures so much area that the meter often gets confused, allowing in too much light. Normally the answer would be to just screw on a neutral density filter, but the design of most fisheye and wide angle lenses makes it almost impossible on many cameras. The usual solution is to use a matte box or similar filter, but these can be quite expensive. If you’re not up for making that kind of investment, Cheesycam has found a low-cost alternative that he demonstrates below: As you can see, adding a Rosco 3040 gel behind your...
