Kawaii Selfie by Mirror Cam



When I see stuff like this, I wonder if we are turning into a society of narcissists lol. I completely understand 365 projects, but this??

Its a camera geared to one specific group: teenage girls. The aesthetics of the camera along with its marketing suggests just that. It's only offered in pastel shades of pink, mint green, and white. This is definitely not for the minded. It's designed with one thing in mind; the perfect selfie. It's 14 MP, with no visible lens element, and works as a sort of 2-way mirror.

It'd be interesting to see if this camera actually sells.

The Beautiful Surrealist Work of Rob Woodcox


Rob Woodcox is a young photographer based out of Portland, OR (he was raised in Detroit). He's been featured and interviewed by what seems like every important media and photography outlet.



At his young age he's already accomplished so much with the work he's done. He photos were used to raise awareness for children in the foster care system. The funds he and his friends raised were used to start a new camp for children in need.



"When he is not creating photographs, Rob mentors children and artists, travels, cooks, and longboards." We sure hope Rob keeps up the great work. To check out his delightful and interesting portfolio click here.

Nelson Tang was a struggling, soft-spoken immigrant dipping his toes into the photography market. He agreed to shoot a wedding for a long-time friend. Soon he found himself in a terrifying and legal dispute. The groom (his friend's husband) is a lawyer and began threatening Nelson with an outrageous $300,000 dollar lawsuit.

Nelson in his state of desperation reached out to the always impressive Gary Fong. The story upset Gary and he decided to get involved. Gary tells the first angering, then completely satisfying story from his point of view. Check out the story here on PetaPixel.
