What’s a good party without a photo booth?
Nineteen-year-old Alexander Morris, from County Antrim, Northern Ireland, designed a makeshift photo machine inspired by Instagram. The get-up is built entirely out of medium density fiberboard and resembles the app’s iconic logo — down to a filtered I.
Morris, a freelance photographer, posted the entire 18-step process to Instructablesover the weekend.
“I finished school in June last year, where I was the photographer for my [class] prom,” he told Mashable. “The organizers asked me to come back and photograph this year’s event.”
After a brainstorming session, he thought up the idea of making the booth.
The contraption uses a Nikon d3200 camera, an entry-level 24 megapixel DSLR, two Nikon sb900 flashguns and a standard TV. One of the steps even involves writing code for an Arduino micro-controller that activates the camera’s shutter and flash guns — a trick Morris picked up in school. In total, the project took him around 11 weeks to complete.
The booth was well-received at the event, he said, which took place at the beginning of March. As for future uses? “There are a few other things I need to tweak before I use the booth again,” he said. “But I will definitely be using it for all future events of the nature.”

Many of us love fantasy and seeing photos that cannot be or aren’t real, as they tell us that we can be more than this. As many of us know, such photos are called surreal, and now in this article I am going to present some awesome surreal photo manipulations that you might not have seen before.
So, don’t wait and start scrolling down to see some wonderful and astonishing photos that might leave you wondering why these things cannot be true.
While Photoshop, Fireworks, and Illustrator may be the most feature-rich and popular options for web and graphic designers, sometimes there may be situations where a lighter option would be preferred. Opening Photoshop for very simple image edits isn’t always the most efficient option. I have searched and reviewed these 5 image editors that are easily available for download. These software are light, fast, really easy to use, and have all the necessary image editing tools required for simple jobs.
Now I do not disagree that Photoshop, Illustrator, and Fireworks are the life blood of the industry. But having said that, all these software are also complicated for some users, strains the CPU, have really large sizes, and most importantly carry a price tag. So if you are a small time user who wants to perform relatively simple edits to images, you would certainly hesitate in shelling out for such software. And that’s quite understandable.
After all, why would someone pay hundreds of dollars for Photoshop if he/she just has to change the color contrasts or lighting of an image?
Also the number of available free image editing software is also quite large. So large that it may confuse you beyond measure. In an effort to work around this confusion we present yo 5 free image editing software that are light, fast, easy to use, and gets the job done.
The fall out from Instagram’s changes to its terms of sercvice at the end of last year has proved far more calamitous for the Facebook-owned Photo app than first imagined. Instagram appears to have lost half of its active users in a month, according to new data.
The numbers of active users seem to have fallen from 40 million to 17 million, according to App traffic monitoring firm AppStats. That seems very high and I wonder if some of these people will come back.
Instagram remains very appealing in terms of the kind of people who are on it and how it is also starting to acquire a news element to it as we saw recently with this story: “How news can break on Instagram as John Terry reveals Lampard is leaving Chelsea”.
It does also say that Instagram is continuing to acquire new users as well, as people acquire the right kind of smartphone (you still can’t get Instagram on a Blackberry), but the fallout shows how risky it can be for social media firms to tinker with copyright. People really do care about this kind of stuff and particularly when the copyright is their own. With pictures, and social media we personally create, that is a huge issue and needs to be handled very carefully.
“A Picture is worth a thousand words”. You must have heard this saying many times, and I do believe the saying is very true. A picture can express so much in terms of creativity and inspiration and many other things.
Not all pictures are very expressive or inspiring, and it takes a lot of hard work to find such pictures and graphics. But, to make your work easy and to save your time, here’s a compiled list of 20 great, creative and inspiring photo manipulations that you should see.
