When clients Janet and Darrell asked Australian photographer Hailey Bartholomew for a creative engagement shoot earlier this year, she came up with the idea of having the couple wear oversized bear heads.
Poladarium is a cool tear-off calendar that’s great for Polaroid enthusiasts looking for daily inspiration:
Every day this calendar reveals a new Polaroid photo, each with its own little story. In this way, you will discover little jewels from both well-known photographers and newcomers throughout the whole year. On the front of each calendar page there is a Polaroid, on the back there is a short description of the background to the photo and information about the photographer.
You can buy one here for €24.90, or about $34.
For her husband’s 40th birthday, Jen had the idea of turning an old, unwanted globe into a unique photo gift showing “his world”. She printed photographs onto white tissue paper, and then adhered the photographs to the globe using Mod Podge. Head on over to her site for a step-by-step walkthrough.
My Husband’s “World” [By Jen]
It’s a big no-no when newspapers or photographers manipulate photos to alter reality, but when a father playfully does it to mess with his kids there’s a big potential for awesome. Graphic designer Anthony Herrera recently did just that, and his story is now making the rounds on the Internet:
A year ago we took a trip to Sequoia National Park. I wanted to excite my daughter while being in such amazing surroundings. Being the Star Wars geek that I am (so is she), I told her that this is where the Ewoks live. She spent a good chunk of our time hiking keeping a lookout for any Ewoks. Coming home I can’t say that she wasn’t disappointed that we didn’t find any. I had to explain that they are extremely shy and hardly ever let anyone see them. After we got home, and after I had a little time alone with the photos, I told her I thought I saw something strange in a few pictures. We viewed them on the TV to get a larger image. You can imagine how surprised and excited she was when we discovered that we didn’t see any Ewoks, but they saw us, and had certainly taken an interest in her and her little brother. Maybe I’m a little wrong for lying to her and falsifying the pictures, but I don’t care. She’ll never forget the time she spent in the big woods with Ewoks.
At Levi’s Photo Workshop in New York City last year there was a large collection of cameras sitting on shelves and available for anyone to use. To keep track of what was missing, labels and outlines were drawn on the wall to “carve out” little homes for the cameras. If you have a sizable camera collection, labeling your walls could be a neat way to both organize them and show them off!
