Right Before You’re Eaten

H/T to Bayou Renaisannce Man for posting about a story in The Daily Mailon photographer Simon De Glanville who gets London’s animal residents to pose for unique close-up pictures by baiting them with chips, bread, kebabs and curry.  De Glanville uses an antique fisheye lens from Belarus to capture these incredible shots.  According to The Mail:

Simon, who trained as a zoologist before taking up photography 12 years ago, now works as a wildlife cameraman travelling the world shooting documentaries. However when he is not travelling the globe, Simon often spend hours at a time snapping the local talent near his South London home.

Here’s a small taste of his work – go see the rest and see what the world might look like right before you’re eaten.

Dogly Dioramas

With ambient temps in the double digits below zero and the windchill approaching 40 below, it’s a really good night to stay inside and goof around on my computer.  Thanks to Jessica over at Bioephemera who posted a link to TiltShiftMaker, a nifty website that lets you upload photos and transform them to tilt shift style miniatures, I had something new to play with.  According to the folks at TiltShiftMaker:

Tilt-shift style miniature photos are simply photos of real life scenes that are made to look like miniature scale models.

This is done using either a special camera lens (one with tilt capability), or with software, instead of a special lens. These photos are sometimes called “fake” miniatures, because they are pictures of real-life scenes.

They look like dioramas made by skilled model makers.
