Bringing Instagram to Life with @joselourenco
With small pieces of cardboard and a dash of acrylic paint, Portuguese artist José Lourenço (@joselourenco) is bringing the Instagram app to life.
Nine weeks ago, José posted his first play on Instagram symbology—a simple screenshot of the comment, like and follow notification that he captioned “two hearts.” He liked that first post so much that he started thinking of ways to bring Instagram design elements into three dimensions. With the introduction of Photos of You, the idea really took flight. José created custom Photos of You labels for the clouds, houses, trees and even giraffes.
For José, these posts add a new angle to the way he shares the world around him. “With the symbols I can create new universes and recreate elements of world history like Atlantis and The Thinker.” He is always looking for the right scene to match his designs: “The symbols are all designed at scale for the scene I photograph or video and are very light and easy to carry around. Yes, I carry the symbols with me all the time!” To see more of José’s creations, be sure to follow him @joselourenco on Instagram.
Enjoy The Dark Side

The 2013 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover model was leaked earlier today with Kate Upton appearing topless in Antarctica for the “Polar Bare’ themed shoot. It’s her third consecutive appearance as the cover model joining an illustrious list of models who appeared on the cover multiple years in a row. The big surprise was scheduled to be revealed on The Late Show with David Letterman on Monday, February 11, but there will be no surprise anymore. The issue will be out on newsstands February 12, and we feel Alabama bombshell Katherine Webb should have been on the cover, but congrats to Kate Upton!

Your SD card just became outdated. Really outdated. The new Eye-Fi SD cards are an impressive step forward in the never ending war on wires.
While you are busy shooting, Eye-Fi cards are not just storing your images on the card itself, but are also sending them to the cloud or other devices like your mobile. As they are successfully saved off-site, your card is cleared, making space for more striking images. If you are not in range of a wireless connection the card simply stores the images until a connection is successfully made.
One of the benefits of the Eye-Fi that has some photographers excited is the ease in which you can transfer photos taken on an SLR and use them on Instagram. Never mind resizing and sending to your iPhone, the Eye-Fi does all the obnoxious work for you. Take a look at the company web site and let us know what you think of this new product.
