Brought to you by two sources that I read from…
A sculpture of pop artist Andy Warhol, depicting what he might have looked like had he still been alive, has been unveiled to mark his 83rd birthday.
‘Andy Walking, Andy tired, Andy take a little snooze’ (Andy Warhol, 83 years old) by Edgar Askelovic
To be creepy or not to be creepy… that is the question. Or maybe it’s just art? I truly don’t know how I feel about this piece of art made by artist, Edgar Askelovic, who spent three months working on the piece of an aged portray of Andy Warhol, which is being displayed at McDermott Galleries in Birmingham. I absolutely love the idea that the artist sold his car to by silicone to make this piece but then again I am like hmmmm…. okay.
“I thought long and hard about what he might look like today,” Askelovic said.
“The pose of the piece is taken from a photograph of Warhol in the 60s. He is a huge inspiration to me and I wanted to make sure that I did him justice with my work,” the 23-year-old artist said.
I love most everything made with or about Andy Warhol but this piece I have to be honest kind of freaks me out. Maybe it’s the bare white old legs or knowing that it’s eerie close to maybe the way Warhol would look these days? Still I have to say it’s pretty cool and wish I would like to have this piece of Warhol to have in my studio…. but maybe standing up with Jean Michel Basquiat.
But I want lie… I would love to have this in my place no matter what! I mean come one it’s Andy Warhol people!

Buy the Canon Camera Lens Mugs at the Photojojo Store!
So I am a huge fan for Canon products and for my career is the only name I have used for camera body and lens to get the shot I need. I am also I guess what you could say a junkie when it comes to and thing photography related! For years now I have collected anything and everything that has a photography theme and well this item couldn’t be more perfect. The Canon name as well as this being one of the main lens I shoot with has made it a must have for me, and of course with it being a mug or even a container for plants is just awesome! I have seen some of these in the past but the price tag was something I didn’t want to see on them, but the prices for these two I think I could handle. I just thought that I would pass this along for those who are photography junkies like me. So check them out and thank for reading my blog.

Lytro Is Developing a Camera That May Change Photography as We Know It. – via @PetaPixel
“Lytro designing a camera that may be the next giant leap in the evolution of photography — a consumer camera that shoots photos that can be refocused at any time. Instead of capturing a single plane of light like traditional cameras do, Lytro’s light-field camera will use a special sensor to capture the color, intensity, and vector direction of the rays of light (data that’s lost with traditional cameras).”

Found this article on wired.com about how Apple is coming out with iOS 5 controlling the shutter release for the camera function. This is going to be awesome because I love taking pictures when people least expect it and best when they don’t know it! Can’t tell you how excited I am with all the new stuff coming out for iOS 5!
“There’s one very neat new feature that will come to every iPhone and iPad 2 with iOS 5: a free remote cable release. According to Brian Sweet of the Cult of Mac blog, the volume button on the iPhone’s headphone cord works just as well as the volume button on the iPhone when it comes to triggering the camera app.
This means you can stick the iPhone on one of many, many tripods or stands and snap a blur-free shot. It’s a shame that you can’t control the shutter speed manually for proper long, low light shots as you can with a real camera, but we’ll settle for what we can get — bear in mind that any camera made in the last 10-15 years requires an expensive, proprietary remote to do this, whether by cable or IR.
And remember, this volume-button trick works for shooting video, too.” so click here to see the rest by wired.com

This is awesome and just thought I would pass this along which I found on my favorite blog PetaPixel! If you don’t know about this blog you should because they have a lot of great things on it.
Bryce Bell of cardnetics created this business card design that features a built-in aperture mechanism. Pull the lever down and the aperture opens up. If you run a photography-related business, this could be a neat business card to pass out to your clients. Pre-assembled cards start at $6 each, while you can buy kits that you put together yourself for $2.50. If you want to try printing and laser cutting the card yourself, the design templates are available here.
