Mind-Bending Recursive Illusion Created Using Printed Photographs

Whoa. If you enjoy watching mind-bending concepts that confuse you and make your brain hurt, check out this experimental short by Willie Witte, titled “Screengrab.”

Nothing in the video is computer generated trickery: it simply uses clever camera tricks and a whole lotta printed photographs to create the seamless transitions. “All the trickery took place literally in front of the camera,” Witte says. See if you can understand what’s going on through the entire 1 minute and 30 seconds.

A Picture of a Picture of a Picture of a Picture of a Picture of a Picture…

Creative Endless Portrait of a Family

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…).
