Photographer Challenge: Hadoken!

Hadokening is a photo fad that involves two or more people staging a “Ki attack” knockout sequence and photographing themselves in mid-action, as seen in the popular Japanese fighting arcade game Street Fighter. Stage a photo perfectly to fool the viewer into thinking things are not what they are!

Where Art, Science, and Photography Intersect

Caleb Charland demonstrates lessons in physics and mathematics with his mind-blowing photography. Inspired by children’s books of science experiments, he photographs everyday objects (like matches, pens and mirrors) in ways we’ve never imagined, often using multiple exposures to tell the story. For example, in Fifteen Hours, the last photo in this set, Charland used 15 exposures to show how the flame of a dinner candle beautifully burns down. See more here.

The Minister’s Treehouse:

Built over the span of 15 years in Crossville, Tennessee, this 100ft tall tree fort was built by Minister Horace Burgess around a single, ginormous tree without any blueprints. It’s 10 stories in certain parts and is estimated to be about 10,000 square feet and made completely from reclaimed wood. Other recycled materials like license plates, furniture, roofing material, and plexiglass skylights also helped fill out the structure.

A great inspiration for building your own treehouse and becoming a Fort Builder.

Pablo Picasso’s light drawings from 1949:

It was 1949 when Pablo Picasso was introduced to Gjon Mili, a photographer who at the time worked for LIFE magazine – where he demonstrated some of his images of ice skaters with lights fixed to their skates, jumping in the dark. Fascinated from the results, the spanish artist then conceived a series of projected light drawings in a dark room with two separate cameras and a small electric light attempting to ‘paint’ his versions of centaurs, bulls and greek profiles.

A great inspiration for making trick photography and earning the Photographer Skill.
