Here’s a set of the winners and some of the honorable mentions from the 2012 National Geographic Photo Contest.
Photographer Kerry Skarbakka takes photographs that show people in mid-fall. They are totally cringeworthy, but they do have philosophical undertones. Skarbakka represents philosopher Martin Heidegger’s view of human existence as one in perpetual fall; it is up to each person to stem this fall.
When someone named the telly “idiot box” they probably knew of its capability of staring into the human soul and bringing out the idiot. Or not, but it is almost painful to look at some of these photographs. Photographer Olivier Culmann apparently takes an interest in how people look while watching the TV, and he’s […]
London based French photographer Franck Allais for his series entitled “Size Matters” plays with the perspective of the viewer and the perceived size of objects to create an interesting set that could run wild with imagination at a moment’s notice.
Photographed by Wendi Riggens, here’s an adorable nine month old Miss Maddie posing as various fairy tale princesses for a photoshoot. The series is titled “Once Upon a Time.”

The photographs simply focus on the movements of fish, and show them off in a way that is very interesting to those of us who keep fish. Iwasaki’s brilliance and style of accessory […]

Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, Québec City, Montréal and London take on a very visually pleasing appearance in these images, […]
Commissioned by a magazine, photographer Adam Voorhes set out to capture these rather interesting images of exploding chilli peppers. For the shots, Voorhes stuffed fresno chilies with tiny fireworks to get those explosions. Voorhes used Arca-Swiss medium format view camera with a PhaseOne P65+ digital back triggered by a Mumford Time Machine to capture the […]
So, you want Instagram style filters on your images direct from your camera? This filter has you covered. The Holga wheel of filters adds a layer of colored plastic in front of the camera lens, allowing you to capture a photograph with these “filters.” Rotate the wheel for more filters, upload a shit lot on […]
