The funniest picture game you could ever play

Everyone here knows that you can go to Google and do a search just for images, right? Of course you do. Well I was challenged to do a Google search on my name and add "meme" to the end. So I did. It cracked me up and I dare you to do the same.

Since I technically have 2 names, I did it twice. Here are the first images that popped up.



So then I decided to try it with my last name...
That one I could not post because it was vulgar. Funny, but vulgar.

Sand Towers Sculpted By Wind

Photographer Joshua Nowicki was roaming around the beaches of St. Joseph, Michigan. He ventured across a unique photo opportunity courtesy of Mother Nature. Small sand towers rising from the beach, and carved by icy wind. They were only a few inches tall, and the resulting pictures made it look like an alien landscape.

After getting home and checking them out, he decided to return the next day for a second chance. Alas, they were all gone.

Light Painting Photo Sets Record

Chances are that if you are into photography, you have at least dabbled with light painting. Well here is one that has 200 light orbs gathered together into one shot. That took a little bit of planning and setup, as you might imagine. Exactly what it took, is outlined in this behind the scenes video. It shows how this record setting shot, captured 200 orbs in one image.

10 things I hate about Nikon

Train kills man posing for photography

A couple were on a road trip from Portland to Tacoma when they pulled over for a smoke break and to snap a few pictures. When a north bound train approached, the man stepped out net to the track to pose as it passed. They never spotted the southbound Amtrak train approaching from the opposite direction the neighboring track. The man was struck and killed.

How to get a press pass

I have been asked this a few times, so I thought I would consolidate all the information into one single instructional post.

The joys of obtaining a press pass are painted in the fantasy that a photographer can get into all kinds of concerts, sporting events, and any other kind of thing where a regular person would have to buy a ticket to see. That somehow flashing a pass, will also entitle you to back stage access and close proximity to stars and entertainers.

The reality is a little bit more disappointing. Mostly. Because many have had the ability of flashing a photographer's press pass to some unsuspecting noob at a red rope or side entrance and just be waved right on through. The worst that can happen is someone says no. Right? So here the truth and all you need to know to take your shot at unfettered access. And good luck!
