Magical Photographs of a Flying Baby

Photographer Rachel Hulin has a cute project titled The Flying Series that consists of photos of her infant son Henry flying. Hulin tells TIME,

Speaking to some of the unusual body positions of her flying offspring, Hulin said, “I never throw him, and I never move him into a place in the frame that he wasn’t in to begin with. I like Henry to fly the way he feels like it, I never pose him in a specific way. Sometimes he’s graceful and sometimes he’s a little hunchback. I think telling you more would ruin it.” [#]

Floating Camera Merges Two Worlds

How do you take a picture of something above the surface of the water and below at the same time? Well if you had the “underabove” camera, it would be a snap. The concept design features two lenses; one on the top half filled with air and one on the bottom half filled with water. It sports a flash and even a “time wheel” so you can take an underwater self portrait. The camera then stitches the images together and displays them on the LCD screen.

The design won a Red Dot Design Concept 2010 award.
