Auto Mechanics Hilariously Recreate Renaissance Paintings

Auto Mechanics Hilariously Recreate Renaissance Paintings
US-based photographer Freddy Fabris had always wanted to pay homage to the Renaissance masters with his photos in some way, but he wasn’t sure how until he stumbled upon an auto-mechanic shop in the Midwest. This led to a brilliant series of portraits with auto mechanics reenacting famous Renaissance paintings. “Translating painting into photography was a challenge I looked forward to,” Fabris wrote on Huffpost. “I wanted to respect the look and feel of the originals, but needed to come up with a conceptual twist that would create a new layer to the original.” Fabris is a professional photographer, so the rest of his work is definitely worth checking out too!

Right now we spend so much time teaching the science of exposure, focus and, yes, even composition, we forget the reason we picked up photography in the first place was to create art.

German Photographer Documented His 350 Miles Trek On Three Donkeys Around The Most Remote Places In Africa A journey through the mountainous desert of Ethiopia is a journey through the ancient books of the Bible.

These 30+ Street Art Images Testify Uncomfortable Truths The catharsis that comes from awakening to the world’s happenings is often eclipsed by the realization of what we – as humans – have caused destruction-wise upon the Earth. In case you’re not aware, the global temperature has increased 1.7 degrees Fahrenheit since 1880, the global average sea level has increased 7″ over the past 100 years due to melting ice caps, and now carbon dioxide levels are at their highest they’ve ever been in over 650,000 years. Credit: CriticalSolutions One way to slow bring awareness to those who may live in the shadow of delusion – ignorant of the effects their actions have and sustainable alternatives they might employ – is to creatively share messages in high-populated urban areas. And in the dense thicket of apartment buildings, skyscrapers, and public plazas, exterior walls of concrete buildings become the perfect canvas to display such messages.

How to Make and Use a Pinhole Camera You can load the camera either with film or fast photographic paper. Your choice of film or paper may depend in part on the exposure times. Paper, because it is less sensitive to light than film, will probably require an exposure of about 2 minutes for sunlit subjects. Film may require only 1 or 2 seconds for subjects in sunlight. Paper is easier to handle since you can load it into the camera under a safelight. If you don't have a safelight, you can work by the light of a flashlight covered with several thicknesses of red cellophane paper placed 6 to 8 feet away.
