Expect the Unexpected: Jimmy Fallon Gets Peed on by Baby During Photo Shoot

Update: The footage has been taken down at the request of Jimmy Fallon’s publicist.


If you’re planning on using a baby in a future photo shoot, take note: you can’t really control their emotions, and they can’t really control their bladders. Of course, if you know what you’re doing, you could end up with some unexpectedly great pictures anyway. Read more…

Satiregram Pokes Fun at Instagram Clichés by Posting Descriptions Instead of Photos

satiregram

The standard Instagram clichés are so… well… cliché that they’re an accepted part of our lives now. Photos of food and selfies are so much a part of our day-to-day existence that I’m only a little ashamed to say I did the former last night (birthday cake pic…) and the latter is now in the dictionary.

But Instagram clichés go beyond the selfie and the food pic, and that’s why @Satiregram exists: to point out and make fun of all of the photos we see filling up our Instagram feeds every day. Read more…

Humor: Chicken-Based Image Stabilizing Rig Delivers Super-Steady Results

Optical image stabilization is all about keeping the camera still even as the housing shakes or otherwise moves around. And when it comes to stabilization in nature, few creatures are as good at keeping their camera (read: head) perfectly still as the chicken.

So why not strap a camera onto a chicken’s head and turn the guy (or gal) into a fowl-stabilized action cam!? Why, no reason at all! Read more…

I suppose we all owe a small cultural debt to this anonymous older lady at a recent Colorado Rockies game. Thanks to her, we now know what the exact opposite of a photobomb looks like.

That would be having a cranky grandma type show up in the money shot of your carefully arranged proposal, flipping the bird at the camera to show exactly how she felt about the interruption. Read more…

Ridiculous Lumia 1020 KIRF Boasts a ’41-Megaplxel’ Speaker Instead of the Camera

1020fake1

Most everyone is familiar with knockoffs — some might even own a couple — but when it comes to the world of tech the general wisdom is to stay far away. A Prado purse or Foakley sunglasses aren’t going to be much of an issue, but a fake Canon speedlight can become a serious problem.

Of course there’s a big difference between a knockoff and what’s referred to as a KIRF (keeping it real fake) product, and the most recent fake we’ve run across is just that: a Lumia 1020 look-alike that boasts ’41-megaplxels’ of audio performance where the PureView camera should be. Read more…

Humorous Ad Paints an Accurate Picture of Smartphone Photo Culture

If you’ve been to a play or other event put on by your child’s elementary school recently, you might have experienced something similar to what the Nokia ad above depicts.

Humor: What if Disney Princesses Shared Photos on Instagram?

I admit that I am an Instagram Junkie. To paraphrase that classic SNL line: “I got a fever and the only prescription is MORE INSTAGRAM.” It’s not that I really enjoy sharing images of my dog and what I had for dinner, it’s more that I love looking at the uploads of those I follow. Following celebrities is a lot of fun, as you get to see a glimpse inside their world. What are they thinking? Where are they going? What are they doing?

BforBel.com knows this and took it a step further…all the way to Disney.
