OK, yes we saw our chance to express our opinion about the candy bar, and we took it.  But our inspiration was from the images of the Milky Way that yahoo posted yesterday.  Lately, running the Las Vegas studio has turned into a full time job for us, which makes us long for the days when we could venture out and take shoots like these more often.  These photographs are great, but there were a few more beautiful ones we thought were worth a look…

This one taken is Eastern Utah by Wally Pacholka

This one taken by Richard Payne in Arizona

This one taken by Kerry-Ann Lecky Hepburn in Ontario, Canada

And these we don’t know for sure so we will leave them un-credited.

A company called Lytro has developed technology to allow a photograph’s focus to be altered after the photo has been taken.  Apparently the new camera will have a sensor that records, a significantly more data about the light entering the lens.  Apparently, the new camera will be able to do all sorts of interesting things, like 3D images, low-light photography without a flash, high speed images, etc.

Is it true?  Could this one camera do it all and at what cost?  Read for yourself and tell us what you think.  If these photos are any indication of what is to come, it is going to be interesting.

OK, we have a real problem with this!  It’s creepy, not just a little creepy, but disturbing, deranged, spine tingling creepy!  Yes we are talking about the dreaded Man-Baby Photos.  Some people out there are actually calling it art.  For Shame!  Allow us to explain.  Earlier this week, we were looking at a piece of art in a public place, and a friend scoffed, “THAT IS NOT ART!”  His reasoning was that he did not have an artistic bone in his body when it came to drawing, painting or sculpting.  Anything he could muster would be considered at a 4th grade level or lower.  Since he felt he could easily produce this piece of “art”, he was not willing to classify it as such.  Being artists ourselves, we wanted to try to explain the nuances of contemporary art, but we knew it would just fall on deaf ears.

Little did we know, we would be shouting the same thing a few days later. “THAT IS NOT ART!”  A cheap Photoshop to fleece new over zealous parents out of even more money, yes…art, no.  What do you think?

Of course we think cameras are the greatest scientific achievement of all time.  Although scientific advancement has provided us the ability to capture imagery, we have always believed that creating art out of that imagery requires a trained eye and strong imagination.  But, every once in a while, science can inadvertently create art all on its own.  Here is a great example, has released photos of x-rays over the years.  Though some are strange and grusome, here is one that we thought was art. Do you know what it is?
