Photographer and tourist Michael Hughes was born in Kingston, London and currently lives and work in Berlin. He has created a series of photos in which he places cheap souvenirs in front of their world famous landmarks. Michael discovered this amazing optical illusion technique in 1998, and since then he has made a lot of improvement in it while traveling to hundreds of famous sights.

I’m sure you have seen some amazing tilt-shift photos – if not, tilt-shift creates an effect that turns normal sized objects or scenes into miniature-like. It is done by special tilt-shift lenses that have very limited depth of field. To start playing with this technique you need to buy a tilt-shift lens , attach to your dSLR camera and start shooting. In this post we wanted to feature some of the best videos applying this technique. To make such amazing pieces you can see below, just take your time lapse tilt-shift photos and create video using some video editing software (it is most popular technique) .
Today we want to show you “more than a photo, but not quite a video”. Art works of artists duo: New York City-based fashion photographer Jamie Beck and visual designer Kevin Burg . They created amazing series of animated GIFs called “cinemagraphs”.
There are times when, while lurking the web – or as I like to call it – conducting online research , you may stumble upon deliciously awesome work that makes you stop, pay attention and want more… This happened to me recently when I discovered the fuckin’ (yes, so good, it made me curse) stunning collaborative work of Jamie Beck and Kevin Burg . Jamie (Photography) , and Kevin (Web Design/Motion) worked together creating beautiful and intricate animated gifs they called Cinemagraphs . Utilizing an old technique to create something new and beautiful with such attention to detail and love is truly impressive and inspiring! Check out more lovely photos after the jump! Here’s a collection of Cinemagraphs from Jamie’s blog From Me To You .
Every so often I’ll see a bit of seemingly pretentious photography that I actually like, and Stellar, by Ignacio Torres, definitely fits the bill. In fact, one might say that this collection is… out of this world . In this set of 3d animated gifs, Ignacio combines the wonders of the universe with a bunch of people who are seemingly being blown away by invisible shooters. Honestly, I don’t even know, but the effect is incredibly neat.

Low angle photography can be achieved by positioning the camera on a vertical axis below the eye-line, in such a manner that you need to look up to take the shot. The main important feature of low angle shots is the dramatism added to the image: most of the time the subject appears to be separated from the background and increases in size, as an optical illusion. Today’s showcase presents 50 inspiring low angle photos that will definitely impress and create a whole new perception of space and shapes. If you want to lean more about low angle photography, here you can find some piece of advice for a starter.
