Pictures of things up close are not only educational, they’re really cool!

Taking pictures of the world from this unique perspective is even cooler.

Unfortunately this sort of technology is quite expensive . Similar off the shelf versions costs hundreds of pounds.

This guy nocked his together for just $10 (not including the smartphone of course) and now you can too.

Thank you Instructables!

Slow photo week at Time For The Photography. Some big news coming next week though! In the meantime theres lots going on though. New PHONES everyone. Camera Phones. The iPhone 5S and 5C are due for release THIS MONTH (as if you haven’t heard). One is awesome – one it not – one is super – one is cr… well You get the idea… (it’s rumoured the C actually stands for colourful, or some suggest we brits say, cheap and cheerful). At any rate expect it to be plastic and horrible a la G4 macbook, which at the time was pretty rad, but looking back is not by todays standards.

Theres also a new Sony Phone that takes the idea of the ‘camera-phone’ rather literally by adding a zoom Lens attachment. I don’t understand this mentality at all. I like that my phone has a camera but I don’t think I’d like my camera to be able to call people too.

Of course other news developments in the hone world include Microsoft chomping up Nokia. Is this good? YES. The worlds largest software company buy one of the worlds best made phone brands. Nokia lost its way with the smartphone era and although the Lumia series has made some amazing progress, especially in recent months, except to see some truly awesome releases in 2014/15.

I’m worried about Apple. Lets all face it – when you have to make a ‘badder’ iPhone as a new release, its shows innovation is taking a bit of a stage dive.

What do you think?

Gizmodo just shared how a camera, lost to an alligator, has been found being carried about by another Alligator. Perhaps he was looking into branching out into nature photography?

The camera was lost 8 months ago and just recently popped up.

Give me hope my camera lost to a glacier may one day pop up too!

Formula 1 fans, we are.

In a race where a few tenths of a second can mean the difference between winning or losing, and its estimated that each team spends roughly £1m to save that tenth, getting the pit stop over and done fast is a no brainer.

While most of us might struggle to take 15-30 mins + to change all four tyres on our cars the the F1 mechanics are under extreme pressure to get it all said and done in less than 5. Five seconds, that is.

Red Bull Racing, and their team of over caffeinated race mechanics, have now shown that they can get it done in just over two seconds.

Thats so fast that you need slow-mo to really appreciate everything thats going on.

While this doesn’t always go according to plan (youch!) its a very impressive feat to witness non the less.

Now…if Red Bull would only do coffee…

Has it really been a year?

Just about. 12 months ago our friend Luke Anderson won Big Brother 2012.

After Luke came out of the big brother house victorious, surrounded by cheering crowd of fans, friends, family, and former house mates; many of the house mates headed to a private location to enjoy some post-show libations.

The conversations that evening were full of funny stories of trading perspectives and a great time was had by all.

Here are a few of the photos we took on that wonderful post Big Brother Finale party.

Good times!

If Captain America had a camera, it might look like this.

Coming soon to the Main Events gallery will be the London Coffee Festival 2013. We’ve been busy with a few other things since attending but we think the pictures will be worth it. If they look half as good as everything tasted, we think you might want to go for seconds.
