Framed’s host Melissa Niu takes us on a journey with the talented conceptual photographer Brooke Shaden as she challenges four photographers from around the globe to step out of their own comfort zones to work on story telling and compositing. The four photographers on deck were Ed McGowan, Anna Skahill, Andrew Kufahl, Samantha Fielding.
New York-based photographer Bela Borsodi creates interesting and sometimes wierd still lives for a host of notable editorial and advertising clients around the globe. Bela combines his love for photography, graphic design, typography and craft into a lot of his work which is probably why the Alphabets Series, created for Wad Magazine is our favorite. What’s so cool about this small 9 letter series is that the letters are formed using everyday materials stacked in an intersting way to create the positive and negative shapes of letterforms.
Be sure to check out Bela’s other interesting work, but be warned not all the images are safe for work, especially in the editorial section.

Fashion photographer and filmmaker Jacob Sutton braved three dark nights of -25C temperatures with his Red Epic camera to capture pro snowboarder William Hughes light up the slopes of south eastern France in an L.E.D. suit made by John Spatcher. One of the coolest things about this video is the fact that Hughes is the only light source painting the scene with his weaves and turns… beautiful.
This installation by curator Erik Kessels is composed of over a million prints uploaded over a 24-hour period to Flickr. The overwhelming presentation makes the viewer aware of the countless photos at our disposal as a result of the digitalization of photography and sharing sites like Facebook and Flickr. The installation is part of What’s Next?, The Future of Photography Museum and is running until December 7, thanks to Foam in Amsterdam.
Curators Lauren Cornell, Jefferson Hack and Alison Nordström will also be in showing alongside Kessels. For more info check out foam.org/whatsnext.
So photographer Tyler Card, apparently has a lot of time on his hands and is looking to sweep costume contests throughout the land this halloween season with his fully functional camera costume.
It has it all, a built in LCD screen, built-in flash and working shutter release button. If that’s not enough he can wirelessly fire off his strobes to capture all the party action.
Here’s a look at the camera in action:
And here’s how it was made.
Nice job Tyler!
Here’s a glimpse at Paris-based designer Charlie Nghiem’s Rotor Digital Camera concept which features a column of rotor dials you use to control the camera instead of actual buttons. The major downsides of a design like this could be the accidental change of mode if you have large fingers or the accidental pocket mode change you’ve likely experienced on so many point-and-shoot cameras.(You pull the camera out to quickly get a shot and after the moment is gone you’ve realized you were shooting in the wrong mode.) Regardless, it’s nice to see some fun design out there on the interwebs.
