Then I watched this video on how he was accomplishing it.



Whoa! If that doesn't make you cringe.....! The thought of throwing upwards of $5,000 dollars of delicate photographic equipment into the air is enough to make some photographers lose it. Yes. His images are beyond beautiful and incredibly interesting. But the risk involved is enough to turn my stomach. So what if there was a better, safer way?

There IS a better way that I invented -- The Maven Adapter No need to risk your expensive equipment to get that amazing shot. For a very small investment the Maven Adapter will enable you to connect your already existing camera gear to the end of a hardware pole, allowing you to extend it 15 feet or higher. It will also allow you to connect Speedlites, an umbrella, go pro or other accessories.

Check out the promo video I created below.

Abstract Architecture by Simas Lin http://www.michaelthemaven.com/?postID=3481&abstract-architecture-by-simas-lin http://www.michaelthemaven.com/?postID=3481&abstract-architecture-by-simas-lin Sat, 20 Dec 2014 13:35:00 GMT Simas Lin. The clean lines and crisp edits lends to the abstract beauty of his architecture photography. His photos feature a color palate of mostly warm tans and slick grey's that contrast beautifully against fresh blues. Surprising pops of colors in vibrant yellows make the minimalist images so pleasing to the eye.





Please take a second to check out more of his work here.

Kawaii Selfie by Mirror Cam http://www.michaelthemaven.com/?postID=3472&kawaii-selfie-by-mirror-cam http://www.michaelthemaven.com/?postID=3472&kawaii-selfie-by-mirror-cam Wed, 17 Dec 2014 11:21:00 GMT
When I see stuff like this, I wonder if we are turning into a society of narcissists lol. I completely understand 365 projects, but this??

Its a camera geared to one specific group: teenage girls. The aesthetics of the camera along with its marketing suggests just that. It's only offered in pastel shades of pink, mint green, and white. This is definitely not for the minded. It's designed with one thing in mind; the perfect selfie. It's 14 MP, with no visible lens element, and works as a sort of 2-way mirror.

It'd be interesting to see if this camera actually sells.
