Shooting lions as close as you can

To shoot wildlife really close (like near the pride of lions, resting in a shade), photographer Chris McLennan and engineer Carl Hansen put the DSLR camera on a small remote controlled buggy. And this is what came out of it:

Aging faces

We don’t see how the face is aging. Because the process is too slow. The only way to see it is to put together two portraits from different times.

How a naked female scientist tries to tame belugas in the freezing Arctic

article-2004042-0C952F4C00000578-558_964x514

Braving sub-zero temperatures, she has thrown caution — and her clothes — to the wind to tame two beluga whales in a unique and controversial experiment.
Natalia Avseenko, 36, was persuaded to strip naked as marine experts believe belugas do not like to be touched by artificial materials such as diving suits.
The skilled Russian diver took the plunge as the water temperature hit minus 1.5 degrees Centigrade.

American Girl in Italy

Photography courses and workshops

At 83, subject of ‘American Girl in Italy’ photo speaks out

You know the photo. You’ve seen it a hundred times. A beautiful, statuesque young woman is walking down a street in Florence, Italy. She’s clutching her shawl, and she seems to be moving swiftly. More than a dozen men are staring at her longingly. One of them is grabbing his crotch.

The iconic 1951 image “American Girl in Italy” turns 60 on Monday. As its anniversary approaches, the stunning woman in the photo — Ninalee Craig, now 83 — is speaking up about it. She wants to explain what the photo represents, and what it doesn’t.

“Some people want to use it as a symbol of harassment of women, but that’s what we’ve been fighting all these years,” Craig said in a telephone interview from her home in Toronto. “It’s not a symbol of harassment. It’s a symbol of a woman having an absolutely wonderful time!”

Domestic Bliss

The world’s two hottest stars discuss love, marriage, and playing house in Palm Springs. Brad Pitt collaborates with photographer Steven Klein to create this portfolio of images, while starring in it alongside his Mr. and Mrs. Smith costar and purported new love, Angelina Jolie.

Серия фотографий 2005 года под названием ‘Domestic Bliss’ являет собой сотрудничество модного фотографа Стивена Кляйна и известного голливудского актера Брэда Питта.
Вдохновением для фотосессии послужила так называемая ‘темная сторона’ повседневной семейной жизни, эдакий ‘необъяснимый недуг’ который преследует на вид счастливую пару. Действие вымышленной истории разворачивается в 1963 году (год рождения актера), во времена, когда последние следы ‘идеально чистых’ пятидесятых уступали место чему-то более сложному и неоднозначному, красивый фасад все еще оставался, но кое-какие ценности уже начинали подгнивать изнутри. К слову, изобразить на фотографиях вышеупомянутый ‘domestic bliss’ Питту помогла его партнерша по снимавшемуся тогда же фильму ‘Мистер и Миссис Смит’ Анджелина Джоли, с которой в дальнейшем по иронии ли судьбы его и свяжут те самые ‘семейные узы’.

CHRISTOPHE JACROT

Photographer Christophe Jacrot
Picrures of bad weather.
“In my opinion, there are two ways of capturing the world for a photographer; on the one hand grasping its horror, and on the other sublimating it. I have chosen the second. More specifically, I like the way rain, snow and “bad weather” awaken a feeling of romantic fiction within me, mainly in the big cities.”

Photo editor “Deja vu”

By Artem Chernov. Full article(in Russian)
There are shots that begin to pursue a photo editor at a certain point. You receive them from friends or fellow journalists, or even from less experienced photojournalist colleagues. “Look, cool, huh?” – they say. But they do not understand your total silence in response. Often, you see those shots in the headings like “Day in Photos” or “Photo of the day”, and even in our own headings. They get there, because there will always be people who will see these pictures for the first time. Actually, these people – the vast majority. And for them it would be cool, or interesting, or funny. For them it will be totally new.
Nevertheless, I’m talking about the shots, who have a number of twin sisters. Sometimes dozens of twins. Sometimes hundreds.
