Have you ever wanted to be a model? Well, if you live in New York and take the subway, you might become one. New York photographer Andreas, better known as Mr. NYC Subway, asks random strangers on the subway if they would like to model for him and the result is quite amazing.
Simple strangers going to work, for dance practice, or just living their lives become professional models. Andreas’s photos also show the many unique, beautiful, and simply fun people in the world! The pictures inspire you to dress the way you want to and express yourself for who you really are.
By this point, you may know of a phenomenon called “influencers in the wild.” The whole idea is that taking a photo may look crazy and weird, especially in an improvised setting, and that’s where the phenomenon comes from. Despite the weird process, the end result still looks beautiful just the same. It’s a reminder of a common saying that beauty requires sacrifices.
Halyson kicks it up a notch as he records the process of taking his own photos in the streets, in the wild, or any other setting. He posts his videos of the process on TikTok and publishes the photos on Instagram. Sure, the process itself may look strange, but it’s the result that matters. And he has 1.4 million followers on the platform to show for it.
When you are photographing animals, you never know for sure what pictures you’re gonna get. But that’s part of the charm.
Combining her love for dogs and everything vintage, photographer Lynn Terry has invited a colorful pack to pose in her custom-made photo booth.
“I had these old curtains that looked like old photo booth curtains [so] I tested the idea out while working on a calendar for the local rescue featuring their pit bulls,” Terry told Bored Panda. “I wasn’t sure it would work sort of boxing them in. So my first plan was to take the photos and apply a vintage look with some antique frames that I had.”
These pictures are what dreams and fairytales are made of—Russian photographer Katerina Plotnikova creates beautiful portraits that balance between the real and surreal. While she nails lighting, composition, and other important aspects of the craft, arguably the most impressive feature of Plotnikova’s work is her feature of animals that we aren’t used to seeing in fine-art photography. Like a bear. Or a moose.
While seemingly dangerous, these ideas were made possible with the help of professional animal trainers.
Hello you; I like this one, because it is the exactly the way I would had taken it. The motive is of the kind I had decided to take a picture of! If you like to read about photography, I recommend the “beginner”-books of Andreas Feininger. Just try out and follow your own path nevertheless! Great work, you! 🙂0Reply#11
In 2013, the Australian traveler and photographer Jay Weinstein met a smile that changed everything. While wandering the streets in Bikaner, India, Jay spotted a man leaning against a row of motorbikes. The photographer was immediately drawn to the stranger, but felt it was best to avoid him. “Take my picture too!” the man shouted at Jay, who was shooting nearby objects, and Jay replied with a simple “Smile!”
This encounter started an almost decade-long mission of capturing strangers on the streets of the world, before and after them smiling. The simple act, sometimes genuine, other times forced, bears the transformative powers that lighten up the face and seemingly open up the soul within.
The Kadokawa Culture Museum is a Tokyo-based cultural complex that opened its doors just last year. The complex houses many temporary and permanent exhibitions, as well as natural history and anime museums. However, one of its most impressive attractions has to be the Bookshelf Theater – an enormous library with eight-meter tall bookshelves designed by Kengo Kuma that contains over 50,000 publications from various Japanese publishers and private collections. Recently, this impressive Bookshelf Theater was captured by Japanese photographer Ryosuke Kosuge, aka RK, and the photos are absolutely breathtaking.
Derry Moroney is an Australian photographer who recently captured photos of a unique “Tree of Life” phenomenon that appeared on the receding Lake Cakora in Brooms Head, New South Wales, and the photos will take your breath away. The photographer explained that the phenomenon appeared after a big amount of rain and stormy weather broke the lake out and drained most of its water. At the same time, a nearby lake rich in tea tree oil and coffee rock ran off into Lake Cakora, creating this beautiful image of a tree.
This photographer named Hugo Suissas from Lisbon, Portugal creates surreal, mind-bending, and magical photographs by using forced perspective and angles. He turns simple bridges and landscapes into surreal and fantastical places, and items like keys, fruits, and kids’ toys into magical props. Every single photograph has a different story and a different idea. They help us see the dull and boring world that we’re used to in a new and more fun way.
