So you’re done with the excessive holiday eating? What better way to strut your new-found pounds than with the annual No-Pants Subway Ride. What originally began as a 7-person prank has now evolved into an internationally observed day of silliness. More than 4,000 people took their trousers off yesterday in New York City’s subways, and thousands more reportedly joined in around the world. Improv Everywhere organizes the annual event, where the sexy strap-hangers begin their train rides all over the city and then converge onto Union Square Park for an impromptu celebration of sorts.

We’ve all been there. An agonizing illness, or unfortunate injury. We’re miserable and bed-ridden, groaning with physical discomfort and pain. A loved one brings us a cool glass of orange juice and a warm smile, and suddenly the pain isn’t as bad. They hold our hand and bring us even more relief. A recent study now suggests that merely looking a photo of this same loved one can reduce pain.
Of course, if your boyfriend is the source of your migraine, you may not want to look at him until you’re cured. Just sayin’.
Hit up the link to geek out on the psychology.
Yesterday afternoon, I had stumbled upon a young California freelancer’s website. From the website, I was compelled to read the blog. Michael Kelley is a 23 year-old Real Estate photographer that really has his shit together. His website is clean, attractive and easy to navigate, and his work speaks for itself. He’s successfully transitioned into sustainable full-time photographer with a lot of hard work and determination. A little bit o’ luck and charm never hurt nobody neither. Stories like Michael’s are inspiring to me. As I was scavenging Michael’s blog posts, I found some book recommendations. So off I went to Barnes & Noble to find out why Michael was so excited about these books. Continue reading
Photography isn’t always about how bad-ass your camera is, or how many flashes you can cram into a scene. It’s inherently about seeing something that no one else sees, and then showing the world your vision. Mercedes Ramirez Guerrero, this week’s featured featured Flickr member, displays this practice very clearly. Her work is mainly photo journalistic in style and approach. By looking through her ‘stream, you can tell she carries her dSLR with her everywhere. Some of life’s smallest and significant moments could not have been recorded if she didn’t. Continue reading
Charles Yeh of Lucima Studios is a Los Angeles based Photographer specializing in fashion, editorial and beauty photography. Originally from Taiwan, he works almost exclusively with women, creating high profile images for magazines and various other publications. Flipping through his Photostream is like flipping through Glamour or Vogue. Not that I do that on a regular basis, I’m just sayin’. Sometimes you’re at the Doctor’s office or the car wash, or whatever waiting area and its the only thing available to “read”. All jokes aside, Charles produces some of the most consistently vibrant pictures I’ve come across on Flickr. The models are all rail-thin and 6′ tall. Basically runway material. Head on over to Flickr to check out Charles’ photostream for your weekly dose of eye candy. Continue reading
I was cleaning house today and I came across a dusty home made DVD. A quick video conversion and upload to youtube and, ACTION! This was my first short film made way back in 2001. I wanted to illustrate that emotion and tone is always absent when two people communicate via the internet. The Stage: AOL.com Instant Messaging. The script was a printout of a conversation I had with an ex-girlfriend. I thought the juicy dialogue would be a good juxtaposition for the dry. mechanical delivery the actors gave. The sound is crap and so is most of the rest of the production and editing, but this one will always be in my heart as my first stab. To me, its one of those “its so bad its good” feelings.

Like most of us, Mr. Eddie Velasquez began taking pictures for leisure and found that he really enjoyed it. He now works as a part time freelance photographer in Anaheim Hills, California. His commercial work is comprised mostly of portraiture and product photography, but his interests also include architecture, landscapes and Motorsports (my kind of guy!). Eddie’s black and whites are very nice, but I’m particularly drawn to his colors, and gorgeous models. California always looks great when you’re in a New York winter! Head on over to Flickr and check out his photos. You won’t be disappointed.
As the user name suggests, dreamswanderer is a bit of a nomad. A self proclaimed people watcher originally from Arizona, he now resides in Paris, France. Use of a fast telephoto on his Canon 5D assures that dreams captures everyday life’s smallest moments with sniper-like accuracy and a creamy bokeh. Most of his subjects are women, couples and children in what look to be large public spaces. He does some portrait work as well, but I find the candids of his strangers far more compelling. There is broad diversity and a human quality rarely seen in street photography. Of course it also helps that most of his subjects are attractive young women. Feel free to check out more of dreamswanderer’s flickr photostream here. And don’t forget to comment.
