One of the joys of photography is the interesting cast of characters you meet along the way. I’m not talking about the subject’s you’re shooting here, I’m talking about the other photographers you’ll run in to.

Today, in order to lighten things up a little, we’ll explore a few of those different characters. Here are 8 different types of photographers you’ll run into in your life: Read more…

Humorous Video Points Out the Photos We Never Seem to Delete from Our Phones

One of the oft-mentioned pitfalls of the smartphone photography movement is that we end up with a ton of photos that just stay on our phones indefinitely, never to see the light of day. This humorous video points out some of the photos that you and I both probably have sitting somewhere on our phone and that, for one reason or another, we haven’t or won’t ever delete. 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.

Video: Wedding Photographer Blocks the Videographer’s Shots

Update: Unfortunately, the video has been taken down since we put this post up. We’ll keep an eye out and get it back up if and when it is re-uploaded.

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.

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

Thus was born the cute series pucker. in which toddlers react to their first ever taste of the sour yellow fruit that life’s always giving us with the expectation that we make lemonade. Read more…

Humorous Video Pokes Fun at the Food Pic Fad

Professional food photography is a legitimate pursuit that takes some serious skill. It’s done in a studio, with professional lighting and often enlists the help of a professional food stylist to get the shot just right.

Food pics are a different matter, often taken in a restaurant with a cell phone while the other people at the table wait impatiently to dig in. The humorous clip above pokes fun at the latter. Read more…
