The next time you’re out in a non-light polluted place with your family and your camera, try using our galaxy as a backdrop. Hawaii-based photographer John Hook shot this ridiculously awesome photograph of him, his wife, and his daughter staring up at the Milky Way. As if that weren’t perfect enough, there’s also a shooting star photobombing the portrait in the lower right hand corner!
The Fuzzy Face Photo Frame is reminiscent of the classic children’s toy, Wooly Willy, only applied to your most treasured family photos. Vendor Fred & Friends suggests:
Give your mom a mustache, hang a mullet on [your] ex-boyfriend, grow junior some sideburns. Simply insert any 4×6 photo and use the included magnetic wand to ‘paint’ with the iron filings.
You can “lock” the metal filings in after completing desired enhancements. Handy!
The frame is $19 from Fred & Friends.

If you’re in need of a creative idea for a portrait of your family, check out this one by Flickr user Tu Do — it’s like the “Inception” of family portraits.
I’ve seen a few of “endless” portraits but generally they’re of the same person, which is pretty boring. So I thought of doing a family portrait haha. If you can’t figure it out it’s my dad, followed by my mom, then me, and finally my little brother; repeat. All shot at f/3.5 with an sb-600 bounced at 1/8th power. [#]
This would also be a neat idea for family members across generations (e.g. grandfather, father, son, etc…).
