Conceptual photography is a photography genre in which the artist makes a photograph of a concept or idea. Usually the conception of the idea precedes the realization of the photography. After the short theory intro, we may check what does this collection has to offer. I see some amazing pieces, such as the Novartis “Reflections” Campaign by Tom Hussey, Smoking kills by BugS22 or for example The Magician by Ronen Goldman. If you love conceptual photos, I am sure you’ll enjoy this collection. I hope you’ll find many fresh and unseen artworks to get inspired. Drop us a comment .). Enjoy!
Tim Flach is a well-known London based photographer. His work has been exhibited in Britain, the United States and the Far East. He also frequently lectures on photography in various countries and has received such international awards as: Association of Photography (AOP), British Design & Art Direction (D & AD), Art Director’s Club of New York (ACNY), Communication Arts (CA) and Photo District News (PDN) Photography. Tim become famous thanks to his stylized photographs of animals that do not fit into traditional notions of wildlife photography when animals are shown in their natural habitat. Tim Flach avoids the obvious compositions. Animals at his photos are taken out of context, and this unreality once again force to reconsider existing stereotypes.
In the Jurassic era, even the measly flea was a beast. It was a super-sized bloodsucker that feasted on dinosaurs with a saw-lie siphon. These undated handout photos provided by Nature show a female from the Early Cretaceous, left, and female and male fleas from the Middle Jurassic. (D. Huang/Nature) Click image to zoom.
In early February 2012, a mother elephant at the Amboseli National Park in Kenya gave birth to her calf in the morning while being surrounded by members of her herd. The elephants protected the defenseless mother in the throes of labor by hiding her from sight and also picked up clumps of soil and grass with their trunks which they threw onto the afterbirth to mask the scent of blood and placenta which could attract predators.via Hungeree
Facebook has recently introduced the new Facebook Pages. The new layout will use the Facebook timeline for brand pages. Most page owners currently have the option to Publish Now or wait until all Pages get the new design on March 30th, 2012. But let’s be honest, you probably wanna jump in and get advantage over the other guy.
Pages are the essential place for businesses to build connections with people. Facebook Pages allows you to express your identity and tell your unique story on Facebook. Now you have the ability to create visually engaging features such as the cover photo, profile picture, views and apps.
- Express your identity with features like cover photo and Page timeline
- Reach your audience wherever they are, on the web or mobile
- Respond to people in a quick, more personal way
What are the dimensions for my Page’s cover photo?
Cover photos are 851 pixels wide and 315 pixels tall. If you upload an image that’s smaller than these dimensions, it will get stretched to this larger size. The image you upload must be at least 399 pixels wide. So in simple words, in order to get the best quality upload the images in the exact pixels!
What is friend activity on a Facebook Page?
People who visit your Page will have a more personalized experience because they’ll see how their friends have interacted with you. For example, if someone tags you in one of their posts or checks in at your location, the people they originally shared with will see these stories highlighted for them on your Page’s timeline.
There are several amazing photos featured in today’s collection of daily inspirations. Let’s be concrete though. The first one I like is the husky by Lennette Newell. We’ll continue with the horse photo right beneath the previous one by Fabrizio. The third one mentioned is the landscape photo called Rays by Marcin Sobas. Pretty good start, right?! In the illustrations section I would like to highlight mainly two artworks. There is a nice redhead illustration called The Pros and Cons of being a Redhead by Marcos Chin. Jimmy Pickering is the author of the other artwork … it’s not the first time he’s being featured. This time it’s his crazy snowman illustration :). I am a huge fan of typography, you all know that already … so you’ll understand why I need to stop in the typography section .. again. My today’s pick is the Laziness by Jake Palma. Korean car manufacturers did a great job last years in terms of design improvement. I remember how ugly those cars were 10 -15 years ago. Now Kia and Hyundai meet the design standards … but look who’s there next. I seriosly hated Ssangyong’s car design .. but the new concept, I gotta say, meets my design standards. Way to go Ssangyong! It’s kind of late for Valentine’s day … we got a nice free flyer though ready for download. I don’t know … you guy’s will figure out what to do with it .). Enjoy!
There exist many mysterious astronomical objects in space including celestial bodies or the planets that are continuously orbiting the sun. Some of these planets are found in inner solar system, some in outer solar system and some are known as dwarf planets.
All the known planets are almost circular and contain most of the mass. You can come to know plants facts.
Let’s have a look at the 10 known planets of universe.
A planet near to the dwarf planet Pluto, is newly discovered by using the Oschin Telescope at Palomar Observatory near San Diego, California. Planetary scientist Dr. Mike Brown announced this discovery of the tenth planet calling it a typical member of the Kuiper belt. This planet is the farthest but known object in the solar system.
Instead of starting with animals, today we’ll start with two nice nature / landscape photos. Jakub Polomski brings us Mala Fatra, mountains situated in Slovakia. As you can see, it’s nothing extreme, but still a very nice view … I love the mountain layers in the background btw. The next photo is called Past by Þorsteinn H Ingibergsson. I could imagine the photo with some nicer house though … but I guess we can’t have everything :). For fans of realistic illustrations, we’re presenting right three of them … but I’ll pick two I like the most. Frida Gustavsson by Branko Bistrovic is the one; the other one is Apple by Michael Oswald. Different styles, but both quite magical. Don’t you dare to skip Barracuda by Sarah A. King in the typography section. And there is something for freebie fans too. This time it’s something for web designers out there. If you are searching for a nice image slider, check the one by pixelsnippets at the bottom. Enjoy the collection!

What makes an art collector? For some, the term itself creates an image of a wealthy man or woman, quaffing expensive wine, staring at his or her treasures. The reality is so far from this, as art collectors aren’t bound by any of these preconceptions – and in some cases, income.
Not all art collecting is about attaining the most rare or most sought after pieces. While some collectors purchase art to invest, some buy art simply for joy. It is personal taste that will, at least initially, govern your choice of pieces. Of course, if you’re buying art simply to make money irrelevant of the image or sculpture, then you’re probably not making the most of your interest.
But how do you find out about different contemporary artists?
Airplanes by Alice X. Zhang
This is the part that seems tricky, at least to start with. The best place to start is a local gallery. If you’re new to the world of contemporary art, gallery assistants and managers will be happy to discuss current and popular artists. Don’t worry about buying initially. You might see something straight away that calls out to you, or perhaps not. There’s nothing wrong with having a wander without buying first.
One of the things that’s worth bearing in mind is that you can approach art in the same way as you would books, music or films. You know the music you like, you may have a favourite author or film genre. It’s okay to not like something because it’s not to your taste.
There are different ways to buy art, and the costs can vary from format to artists. Let’s take a look at these formats in more detail.
Open edition prints
Ocean Meets Sky by Terry Fan
Probably one of the most cost effective way of enjoying an artist’s work on your wall is buying an open edition print. These prints are produced until the printing plate wears, and have no fixed edition run. They are usually available in various sizes, suitable for your surroundings and budget. These prints are usually only available for long established artists, whereas many contemporary artists only have limited edition runs of their work.
