What is Freelensing?
Photos taken with the lens detached from the camera but held in place and moved around to focus. This also lets extra light in sometimes causing light leaks and giving a vintage look and feel.
Freelensing can also:
* Give extra bokeh by shrinking the area in focus (aperture is 0)
* Allow for super macro shots
* Produce ethereal lighting by allowing stray light to get in to the sensor
* Make delicious light leaks
* Create tilt-shift effects

Thinking about DIY Beauty Lights and what the better contender might be?

Photographer Ed McGowan was thinking that too. He faced off two of the more popular DIY beauty dishes: in the left corner, wearing blue shorts at feather weight, the Turkey Pan beauty dish. In the right corner, enforced by the elements, wearing red, the Terra Cotta bowl beauty dish.

Winner after the jump.

There is no KO in this match. Lets count the points:

Light – You can look at the images above or pixel peep in a big file here. The pan has bigger reflection area, so I was kinda expecting a bit softer light, yet, for me they look pretty similar.

Weight – winner is turkey pan by points. Not that I think that there are big points in weight. If the strobe can carry the dish, it doesn’t really matter.

Sturdiness – big points go to Terra Cotta. It is build better and thus will travel better and will pay off the crafty after noon for a longer time

Looks – well, the pan dish kinda looks like a championship belt, but if clients are around, the Terra Cotta looks more pro.

And the winner by points, according to Ed is “Terra Cotta bowl more…mainly because it looks better”.

What do you think? Which Beauty Dish do you like better? Sound off in the comments.

Featured comment by Lech: Terra Cotta rocks the pants off Turkey time! The color cast is one aspect for sure, but beyond that, there’s a whole gallon of deep frying oil more highlight coming off the subject shot by the plant dish. Her skin tones are warmer, the whites are whiter, and the complementary colors in the neckware really dance. More detail in shirt by a mile, and even look at the light in the jeans – much sweeter blues come out with the Terra. To me, it’s totally hands down – Terra over Turkey. I would consider amending your post even since after reading it, you didn’t do the comparison justice.

Our friends over at photojojo brought our attention to these fantastic layered images by Phillip Maisel.

Phillip grabbed his digital camera, set it on a long exposure and took a photo of his computer screen while clicking through a Facebook photo album.

The result? Gorgeously layered photographs that resemble double or triple exposures. We highly recommend that you flip through the entire series by clicking HERE.

A day, a photo field trip, or even a month’s worth of images all relived in one photo! There’s something pretty magical there.

So, the next time you find yourself flipping through Facebook albums, see what happens when you set your camera in front of your screen. And keep checking back here because it is our hope to convince Phillip to be featured as a future Art Star one Friday very soon…

Andrea & I had a blast with Donna leading the Hipsta Workshop at UTD yesterday. Our students were fantastic and captured some amazing shots as we photo field tripped around campus during the second half of both sessions of the class.

We hope you’ll join us as we show off the results and demonstrate with brilliant visuals exactly what you can achieve with your camera phone.

All camera phone nerds & gangstas are invited to submit images taken with their cell phone to be considered for the Hip Shootout, a one night only exhibit held at the Visual Arts Gallery, University of Texas – Dallas on July 31 from 6-9:30pm.

Submission deadline is July 26 so you’ve still got a week to get your favorite phone shots printed and mailed in for the show. For details, please email

Yesterday … all our troubles seemed so far away. And by “yesterday” we mean “in 1991.”

Jog memories of childhood bliss with the game “Young-Me-Now-Me.”

To play, just find an old picture of yourself, and then snap a modern-day recreation.

The challenge, of course, is matching yesteryear’s settings, costumes, and props: good luck finding that laser backdrop, plaid vest, and lawnmower-sized cellphone.
