England-based photographer Martin Kimbell uses long exposures and special lighting techniques to create spectacular light trails set against lovely landscapes. To capture each gorgeous spectacle, Kimbell attaches LED lights to a hoop and then tosses it up in the air to document the movement.
It’s important that people see this
I dont even know who this is, but the media pulls shit like this often and it should be publicized.
HAHAHAHAHAHAH THIS IS MY FAV PHOTO SET EVER HAHAHAHAHAHA
The most famous monkey selfie of all time is now the subject of a legal battle with Wikipedia
From the ‘you can’t script it’ category comes this somewhat bizarre story about a pending legal entanglement between a clever monkey, a photographer, and Wikipedia. It all started back in 2011 when nature photographer David Slater had his equipment, erm, borrowed by a rather forthright primate who proceeded to take hundreds of selfies, including the ubiqitious one above which has since been adopted by Wikipedia in its Wikimedia Commons collection.
Slater requested they remove the image only to be advised by Wikipedia that they wouldn’t as it was technically the monkey who pushed the button on the camera to take the photo, not the David Slater himself. ‘But it was his camera, sir?’ Nope, according to Wikipedia, the copyright is legally held by the monkey, who, strangely enough, hasn’t had much to say about the proceedings.
Now the UK’s Telegraph are reporting that it’ll cost Slater an estimated £10,000 in legal fees to take the matter to court. All the while, Wikipedia remain unrepentant. Talk about taking the monkey!
Photographer Fabian Oefner dismantles each car completely, from the body shell to the smallest screws, then photographs them piece by piece in a specific position to obtain the illusion of an exploding car.

This is Sean Casey’s TIV which means Tornado Intercept Vehicle we crossed paths in Mitchell, SD after a long tornado filled day. Sean has spent many years placing his home made armored vehicle directly in the path of tornados in order to film with his IMAX camera. -@CamilleSeaman http://ift.tt/1pjEYYa
This surreal photoshoot was done underwater on a ship wreck in Bali
Seven divers, two models, a 50-year old underwater shipwreck off the coast off Bali. How much more badass could a photoshoot get? But for Montreal-based photographer and director Benjamin Von Wong, who is known for his outrageous photoshoot concepts, it’s all part of a day’s work.
At first glance, the surreal images might look like they’re a product of some pretty rad photo manipulation, but actually, they’re the result of a challenging process Wong and his crew had to go through. Starting with his crew, he had to get seven certified divers, as well as two models who were trained freedivers. Anyone who’s been in the water, let alone 25 meters below it, knows this is no easy task. As for the ship wreck, he had to get a special permit to use the underwater site.
It gets harder from there. Since the seawater would permanently damage the fancy dresses worn in the shoot, Wong had to find a designer willing to permanently part with their creations. Due to underwater conditions, Wong was limited to using natural light, all the while giving instructions to his team and ensuring the safety of his models.
The results of this risky and dangerous photoshoot are images that only the wildest of imaginations could conjure. Images of beautiful sea goddesses, with their dresses and flowy hair flowing amongst the battered remains of a sunken ship. Through the daring efforts of one photographer and his crew, we get to see an enchanting realm under the depths of the ocean.
