Best-of body-painting & shooting

LABSN Editor’s Note: I’m  just so impressed with this site. Here are a series of photographs of bodypainted people, but it’s done in such a unique way that the difference from a typical bodypainting makes it its own genre. Hope you like it as much as I do.

That one-finger selfie

LABSN Editor’s Note: Paul makes some excellent points with this post on his Zjuzdme.org blog. What do you think? 

One-finger selfies. You’ve probably heard about it, seen plenty of examples of it. The one-finger selfie. Apparently it started though an Anime character that demonstrated how to do it: I had…

LABSN Editor’s Note: I ran across Nick and Lin’s blog and found what they had to say very informative and interesting. Check them out.

For me, Bettie Page & Bunny Yeager epitomize iconic American pinup photography. Not just of the 1950s… Ever. In 1954, Bettie Page was working with Irving Klaw in NYC and decided a break w…
