Funny street theme snaps poke fun at street fashion photography

Street theme fashion photography is quite a huge deal these days that also makes it the perfect aim for a bit of good humored, well deserved ridicule. Here comes Jessica Saia and Isla Bell Murray of Bold Italic as well as their uproarious tongue-in-cheek Literal Street Style series.
As the name evokes, this is Murray and Saia’s reductio ad absurdum testimonial to the art of street theme fashion photography. Taking a very ridiculous and very literal interpretation of the term street theme, they fancied up random objects on the road in fashionable accessories and cloths and after that snapped away, clivking all the significant angles.
The duo wrote that the street theme blogs have been hot for quite a while now. But let’s call it what it really is – ‘People Style, Outside.’ If anything, the street is usually out of focus or is in the photo at some weird angle, not being stylish at all!”
Their answer was to click snaps the real street style. The habitants of the pavement that you would find out there everyday – and in this case sporting some fancy fashion. They clicked and spoke with 7 of these so called permanent repairs of pavement life, asking them about their unique attire and taking snaps from all the queer angles you are no doubt familiar with if you have ever read a street style blog.

Dartford warblers is under ‘threat’ from wildlife photographers

Nature lovers and conservationists fear that over-zealous wildlife photographers are threatening the well being of one of United Kingdom’s rarest breeding birds on a popular Suffolk heath. A series of recent incidents suggests that wildlife photographers be encroaching at the National Trust’s Dunwich Heath, located near Southwold, to get close-up snaps of the Dartford warblers. These incidents have propelled the trust to take stern action.
This specific bird species is quite elusive and they are difficult to spot. It enjoys the top spot of legal protection designed by Wildlife and Countryside Act. It is placed on the Schedule one of the act and it is highly sensitive to disturbance.
In spite this season being the breeding time, trust staff reported that some wildlife photographers had recently been spotted well away from the heath’s paths. They were far too close to the Dartford warblers nest sites. Not just that, they are even attempting to lure the this species onto the heath tops by playing recordings of the species’ song, which is a highly controversial process named tape luring. The staffs of the trust have distributed a leaflet for birdwatchers and photographers that ask them to abide by the code of conduct and abide by the law.
The trust’s senior ranger for the site Richard Gilbert said that they are attempting to raise awareness of a problem that has highly developed, particularly over the last 5 or 6 years in his experience. There is now a lot of technically advanced as well as economically available photography equipment around, but unfortunately, the advances have not been matched by the capability and experience of some photographers.

United States debut for Wild Wonders of Europe

With top nature snaps – from 200000 snaps taken in 48 nations – a new exhibit called Wild Wonders of Europe offers an unexpected as well as dramatically stunning view of the wildlife and wild places of Europe. The very first United States exhibit starts on 28th September at National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson Hole in Wyoming.

Direct from t he often overlooked wild part of Europe, Wild Wonders of Europe exhibit has been attracting people from all across the world. It would get its United States debut at National Museum of Wildlife Art in Wyoming’s Jackson Hole.

The biggest communications initiative and conservation photography ever, the Wild Wonders of Europe show offers a magnificent view of the landscapes, fauna and flora of the continent, as taken by some of the well known nature photographers of Europe. The exhibit is beginning on 28th September at the King Gallery of National Museum of Wildlife Art. The exhibit will go on till 5th January, 2014.

National Museum of Wildlife Art’s Adam Duncan Harris told that Wild Wonders of Europe is an eye opener as they do not typically equate wildlife with Europe. He tend to think about Roman ruins or great cathedrals, but not wilderness areas teeming with wild creatures. The main point of the exhibit is to help change that perception and get people to see that there are ibex, musk ox, bears, red deer, and wolves, for instance, in really surprising places.
