These wonderfully creative photographs are the brainchild of Ulric Collette, an art director out of Quebec city.
He combines the portraits of Two people who are related, to demonstrate the similarities between them. They are all from his series "Genetic Portraits". You can check out his other work over on his website here. An interesting spin on the family portrait, don't you think?
For this, the 4th edition of the Global Photography feature, I decided to focus the viewfinder on the beautiful city of Sydney, Australia.
Sydney is the state capital of New South Wales and home to 4.6 million "Sydneysiders," making it the most populous city in Australia.
Combining Two of my greatest loves, dogs and great photography.
Any dog owner will tell you how difficult it can be to get man's best friend to pose for a snap, making these truly exceptional examples of dog photography, all the more special.
These extraordinary landscape photographs have been carefully constructed entirely from food and I think you'll agree, that the contrasting textures and the vibrancy of the colours, make for some truly beautiful and utterly ingenious works of art.
I had planned on saving the London Global Photography feature to coincide with the opening of next summers Olympic Games, however after the utterly abhorrent scenes of riots this week in London and some other cities here in Britain, I thought we could do with seeing some nice images of the UK capital city.Located on the River Thames, London has been a major settlement for two millennia, it is the largest urban area in Europe and is called home by nearly 8 million people.
I've decided to revisit the Global Photography feature I started a while ago. This time focusing on the breathtaking city of Venice.Stretching across 117 small islands in the marshy Venetian Lagoon, along the Adriatic Sea, Venice is Often called the most romantic place on earth and there's no denying it's one of the most beautiful, visually distinctive and really quite remarkable cities. It's for these reasons, I've decided to showcase the floating city by putting together this collection of stunning photographs.
The 256-color GIF format has been around since the early days of the Internet but these animated images have taken an interesting turn lately. Cinemagraphs look like still photos but actually feature a subtle area of movement designed to grab your eye and keep you looking. The effect is slightly eerie but quite captivating. Photographer, Fernando J Baez, describes the technique as "more than a photo, but not quite a video."Here I've compiled a collection of, 25 or so, great examples of the cinemagraph technique for you to enjoy.
Here I have compiled a collection of 20 or so great examples of creative photography for your viewing pleasure.
I've tried to avoid, as best I can, photographs where the creative element has been put together in Photoshop and instead I've tried to choose shots where the inovation came from the set-up. That being said I'm under no illusion that these photographs will have gone through some degree of post-processing in some kind of digital darkroom software. Enjoy.
