The British have had their fair share of shocks and surprises over recent weeks. If Brexit and its subsequent resignation spree weren’t enough, this incredible photograph captured by press photographer Peter Macdiarmid of a levitating prime minister will finally convince us the UK has lost its feet.
Of course Mr Cameron isn’t really levitating. Instead, and much to our relief it quickly becomes apparent that a common photography quirk is at play whereby an optical illusion between Cameron’s right Continue reading
In the latest video in a long line of successful forced dismantling episodes, the current darling of the Youtube universe have done the unthinkable and crushed two vintage cameras. The reason? To finally answer that age old question of Canon vs Nikon superiority.
Watch the video below, or scroll down if you want to see the finished result.
This sort of thing can be difficult for camera enthusiasts to stomach, however unlike other similar camera destruction reviews we’ve covered before on Phogotraphy these guys were using non-functioning cameras and let’s face it, the chap controlling the press has an adorable accent.
So which brand ‘won’?
The explosion in popularity of digital SLR cameras with low noise capability has brought forth the Aurora Borealis revolution. It appears that some camera accesory manufacturer are also tapping in to that market
In the early morning hours, LEE filters surprised photographers with the announcement of a brand new product to their range, the KP9 Aurora glass filter.

Today’s winner of the ‘Photo of the Day’ award goes to… Ben Innes, the 26 year old British man held hostage by EgyptAir aeroplane hijacker Seif Eldin Mustafa. It’s one of the most bizarre photos we’ve seen on the news lately and epitomises the image of ‘The British Lad’.
Ben is grinning wildly at the camera while looking relaxed with his sunglasses still on his head and his hands by his side while a hint of a faint smile can be seen on his captor who also looks pretty relaxed, especially considering he’s wearing a suicide belt (however this is reported to have been a fake belt).
It’s remarkably similar to photos you see posted up on Facebook or Twitter when Continue reading

Science explainers like Ratkowski often have to find unique ways to demonstrate certain scientific reasoning. Using photography and just his index finger Continue reading
Evening. Your short bed time story tonight is a delightful short film about a child who was born with a camera for a face.
Via Laughing Squid.
In a rare break of persona, the satirical photographer Missy Mwac has launched a scathing attack on a popular Facebook page that stole an image and allegedly removed her name as credit. A photo of her as a child in the arms of her doting father.
“That’s not sharing, it’s called stealing”
The picture posted earlier this year is a grainy black and white vernacular snap from the author’s yesteryear entitled with the caption “If you don’t think photos are important, wait until they are all you have left.” The message is especially poignant for Missy who lost her father early in life and helps carry weight to her ongoing cause of getting people to print more photos.
Christmas morning came, gifts were unwrapped and like many middle aged parents who find most joy binge watching a new Netflix series when the children are asleep I opened the brand new Apple TV box, a gift from my wife. We already had the previous unit however this newer model included the App store; another ingenious way of getting the zombie nation to spend more money. Lest I continue this droll sense of pain for it led me to discover a beautiful game called Lumino City.
