Remarkable Photos of a Fish Trapped Inside a Jellyfish

You don't see that every day. Australian photographer Tim Samuel recently captured a couple of photos the likes of which we feel confident saying you have never seen before. He photographed a fish... trapped inside a jellyfish... controlling the jellyfish from inside.

Canon’s Latest Creative Experiment is… Weird

"The Lab" is a series of 6 creative experiments being conducted on photographers by Canon Australia. Early efforts were interesting: 6 photographers were asked to shoot portraits of the same subject while given different backstories, and then another 6 were asked to shoot photos of the same objects with no repeats.

But the experiments have started getting weirder and weirder. For its latest one, Canon invited 6 photographers to a studio shoot. Only after arriving did the participants find out that the studio was entirely empty, that there were no props, and that selfies were forbidden.

Weird Tip: Wear Compression Socks to Avoid Leg Fatigue on Long, On-Location Shoots

If you've ever been on-location for a shoot from sunrise to sunset (and beyond), you know how fatigued your legs can get by the end of the day. Standing up all day can make it feel like your legs are about to fall off.

But if a comfortable pair of shoes aren't quite enough to keep you going, this weird tip might just be the best gift you can give your legs the next time you've got to be on your feet for extended periods of time.

Photos of Skunk Owners Showing Off Their Quirky Choice of Pet at Skunk Fest

Behold the work of South Carolina-based photographer Vincent J Musi and one of the most unusual photo sets you're likely to run across today. As part of an April cover story for National Geographic on “exotic” pet owners, Musi went out and photographed the owners of an animal most of us wouldn't dare bringing into our homes: skunks.

Frog Photobombs NASA Launch Photo

Check out this photograph NASA captured recently during the launch of its LADEE spacecraft. Notice anything unusual? If you're thinking that the strange dark spot seen in the middle of the smoke plume looks familiar, you're right -- that's a frog.

Upcoming PS4 Game ‘Outlast’ Pits Digital Camera Against Zombies

Here's yet another reason why it's a bad idea to think reporters outfitted with cameras can replace actual photojournalists -- the reporters apparently are dumb enough to wander into an abandoned insane asylum full of zombies.

(The first thing a real photojournalist would do, of course is ask "Do I get paid mileage?" before refusing to take the gig.)

Controversy Erupts After Photographs of Cosplayers Show Up on Pillows

You've had a rough day, you're bone tired and ready for bed. What would feel better than cuddling up with an image of some anonymous dude in a Superman outfit?

Yeah, I can think of a couple million things, too. But apparently there's a market for body pillows emblazoned with images of comics fans dressing as their favorite characters. The legal and ethical framework for selling them, however, is a different matter.

Bizarre Portraits of People Dressed In the Food They’d Like to Eat

Hunger Pains is a very... different series of portraits by NYC-based photographer Ted Sabarese. For each of the photographs, Sabarese asked his model one simple question: "What are you craving at the moment?" He then took the food described, had them turned into clothing items, and photographed the models wearing the things they'd like to eat.

The Armadillo Camera and Other Wacky Camera Creations

Swiss photography duo Taiyo Onorato and Nico Krebs were featured here in April of last year for their DIY large format camera created out of a stack of books. It turns out books aren't the only things the two are making cameras with: they also have cameras that mix the worlds of taxidermy and photography.

For their project titled Camera Collection, Onorato and Krebs created one-of-a-kind cameras out of extremely unusual things -- including an armadillo (shown above).

Headless Portraits From the 19th Century

It's not easy to remember life before Photoshop. When we do, we think of a world where picture were straightforward, always showing exactly what happened to be in front of the lens when the exposure was taken. But that's not entirely the case.

Trick photography has been around for centuries, and even though the folks in Victorian times weren't nearly as concerned with artificially slimming down, they did like to have some photographic fun once in a while. This set of headless photographs from the 19th century is a great example of the kind of 'fun' we're talking about.
