Thought-Provoking Photo Project Explores Social Inequality In America Baptist Minster/Ku Klux Klan Photographer Mark Laita completed an 8-year-long photo project that explores social inequality in America. Called ‘Created Equal’, Laita traveled the country, capturing people from all walks of life who share a certain connection—but yet, they are different. “In America, the chasm between rich and poor is growing, the clash between conservatives and liberals is strengthening, and even good and evil seem more polarized than ever before,” wrote Laita in his artist statement. “At the heart of this collection of diptychs is my desire to remind us that we were all equal, until our environment, circumstances, or fate molded and weathered us into whom have become.” Check out his photos below: Thought-Provoking Photo Project Explores Social Inequality In America

Private Chris MacGregor, 24 Photographer Lalage Snow, who is currently based in Kabul, Afghanistan, embarked on an 8-month-long project titled We Are The Not Dead featuring portraits of British soldiers before, during, and after their deployment in Afghanistan. Similar to Claire Felicie's series of monochromatic triptychs, Snow captures the innocent expressions of these men transformed into gaunt, sullen faces in less than a year. The three-panel juxtaposition allows the viewer to observe the physical changes a stationed soldier in a war zone goes through. Time is sped up for these men under the beating sun, amidst combat. Regardless of age, the boys that went in came back as men with experiences beyond their years. Portraits of Soldiers Before, During, and After War Portraits of Soldiers Before, During, and After War

My Modern Metropolis The Curious World of Children Bodybuilders This digitally altered photo series titled Bodybuilder's World by Belgian photographer Kurt Stallaert takes a look at a rarely imagined world filled with people, young and old, who have clearly spent every waking moment pumping iron. While it may seem strange for every single person to be so ripped, it's definitely the fully developed and extremely fit figures attached to wholesome children that warrants a double-take. I have to admit that it took a second to acknowledge that something was amiss in these photographs. It wasn't a very long second, but upon realizing what I was looking at, it seemed hard for me to ever see past these children whose sweet, innocent faces sit atop unusually muscular bodies.

50 Captivating Slow Shutter Speed Photos Using a slow shutter speed allows for a completely different style of photography - from light painting to capturing smooth water effects. This article features a quick introduction to this style of photography, followed by 50 really amazing examples of the technique in action. Hopefully you'll leave feeling inspired! Shooting With a Slow Shutter Speed At the most basic level, you simply need to place your camera on a tripod (or flat surface) then make sure the shutter speed is set to a low value. Anything from around 1/10 of a second should allow an interesting effect, and experimentation is key - you'll probably need to play around to find the most appropriate setting.

Forced perspective is a technique that employs optical illusion to make an object appear farther away, closer, larger or smaller than it actually is. It is used primarily in photography, filmmaking and architecture. It manipulates human visual perception through the use of scaled objects and the correlation between them and the vantage point of the spectator or camera. There are many ways to attack photography and some are much more expensive than others. 99 Excellent Examples of Forced Perspective Photography | Photography
