“Dark Carnival”: Photographer Makes a Shots of Vintage Creepy Clowns In a Cornfield

According to Tara Mapes: “If you know me, you know Halloween is my favorite time of year. Scratch the pumpkin spice and sweater weather, I just love recreating vintage horror shots.

Last year I created papier-mache masks and did some cool horror stuff (you can check out by clicking here)! I also did a shoot at an old abandoned asylum (you can check out the post by clicking here). And don’t forget the Dark Carnival that came to town earlier this year (you can find the post here)!

This year I went with CLOWNS AND CORN.

This weekend I’ll be shooting at an actual Horror House down the street, so stay tuned for the return of the DARK CARNIVAL.

Enjoy, my fellow fright freaks, enjoy!”

Photos of Mark Frechette and Daria Halprin During the Filming of ‘Zabriskie Point’, 1970

Zabriskie Point is a 1970 American drama film directed by Michelangelo Antonioni and starring Mark Frechette, Daria Halprin, and Rod Taylor. It was widely noted at the time for its setting in the counterculture of the United States. Some of the film’s scenes were shot on location at Zabriskie Point in Death Valley.

h/t: vintag.es

The film was an overwhelming commercial failure, and was panned by most critics upon release. Its critical standing has increased, however, in the decades since. It has to some extent achieved cult status and is noted for its cinematography, use of music, and direction.

Following prolonged publicity and controversy in North America throughout its production, Zabriskie Point had its premiere at Walter Reade’s Coronet Theatre in New York City on February 5, 1970, almost four years after Antonioni began pre-production and over a year and a half after shooting began, before being generally released on February 9, 1970. Despite the explicit language and sexual content, the film received an R rating rather than an X, in a shift in the MPAA’s policy.

“Detached, in Harmony”: Artist Taking Conceptual Photography to New Heights

Award-winning aerial photographer Brad Walls has released a new series titled ‘Detached, in Harmony’, drawing inspiration from the pandemic, as well as from a renowned 40s fashion photographer. Audiences are invited to experience the first-of-its-kind conceptual art series from above.

More: Brad Walls

Walls, widely known for his ‘Pools From Above’ series, first set his sights on creating conceptual photography series when he noticed the distinct lack of aerial-based photography in the genre. As he explains, “Conceptual photography is mostly shot on handheld cameras, but I wanted to showcase the value of an alternate viewpoint to convey a meaningful story.”

In creating ‘Detached, in Harmony’, Walls wanted to harness nuance and meticulous attention to detail to mirror the state of the world during the pandemic. Like many, the artist had experienced how distant and repetitive life had become, and placed a keen focus on this element in his work. Through his take on the topic, Walls presents these concepts using repetition, symmetry of figures, and negative space throughout the series – trademark compositing techniques that can be observed throughout Walls’s greater body of work.

Each frame within the series is carefully arranged, placing the model at even lengths and highlighting the shadow cast to highlight our solitude and the lurking darkness of the era. Walls’s choice to have the models posed mid-movement emphasises the uniformity and surrealism of the series. As he explains, “The figures are purposefully static, to symbolise how we have been frozen in time over the past 18 months.”

Walls also draws inspiration from 40s fashion photographer Clifford Coffin’s ‘Models Sitting on Sand Dunes’. Walls’ himself is deeply inspired by coffins, who likewise like himself pushes the boundaries of traditional photography. The artist displays a melancholic sense of loneliness in his series, and balances these emotions with warmer hues, similarly found in Coffins’ work as Walls states “We all belong to something that separates us. It’s a sort of melancholic irony”.

‘Detached, in Harmony’ placed second in the 2021 Fine Art Photography Awards ‘Conceptual’ category, and placed silver in both the prestigious PX3 awards and Moscow Fine Art Awards of 2021. The artist currently plans to exhibit ‘Detached, in Harmony’ in a solo exhibition in 2022.

Amazing Black and White Winning Images of The WildArt POTY Monochrome Competition

Here are the winners and highly commended photographs from WildArt POTY MONOCHROME Competition 2021. WildArt Photographer of the Year is a new wildlife photography competition with a difference. Designed by wildlife photographers, for wildlife photographers and judged solely by wildlife photographers, it features 10 themed category contests run over the first 10 months of 2021.

Monochrome Gold Award Winner: “Whale Shark and Tourists” by Csaba Tökölyi, Hungary

“The image shows fishermen feeding Whale Sharks near Oslob in the Philippines, while a group of snorkelling divers wonder at the spectacle. The spot is remarkably popular, attracting thousands of visitors, however, the situation is by no means ideal. Although the animals are no longer slaughtered as before, the attraction of continuous food supply changes their migratory path and in some cases the animals spend months rather than weeks here before continuing to their breeding grounds. Although touching the animals is strictly prohibited (threat of fine and imprisonment) it happens from time to time.”

Monochrome Silver Award Winner: “The Magic Moose” by Pål Hermansen, Norway

“This image was taken with a sensor triggered camera trap, left in the winter forest for several weeks at a path frequently used by moose. I used four cameras and more than 10,000 images were taken, but this was the one I liked best because of the shooting star. The nights were cold, minus 10-15 C, and therefore the lens was inevitably partly covered by frost crystals. Some of them created small reflexes caused by the moonlight, which are carefully adjusted in the final image. This is an image that is extremely unpredictable and difficult to capture. Just to have the moose standing still for 10 seconds is very unlikely to occur.”

Monochrome Bronze Award Winner: “Shadow Monster” by Lincoln Macgregor, Australia

“The shadow of a Horn-Eyed Ghost Crab stretches out across the sands of Turquoise Bay in Western Australia as the sun draws closer to the horizon. While taking this photograph, I purposefully overexposed the background to draw attention to the form of the crabs’ body. I enjoyed capturing the contrast between the innocent-looking crustacean and the monster-like shadow that expanded out in front of it.”

Monochrome Wild Planet Photo Magazine Editor’s Choice: “Bathtime” by Diana Andersen, Australia

“At local wetlands, pelicans returning from a day on the ocean bathe vigorously. Shooting directly into hard afternoon light resulted in the dramatic silhouetting of the bathing bird and highlighted the spray going into the air. I used negative exposure compensation to avoid blowing out the highlights and losing the water droplets.”

Monochrome Highly Commended: “Chasing Hares” by Paul Richards, United Kingdom

“Chasing hares was taken in February 2021 on the few occasions when we had snow in North Norfolk. I love the hares in Norfolk and often spend hours lying flat in a field or under a hedge waiting for them to get close. On this occasion, the hares were chasing each other in the field and the blizzard conditions added atmosphere to the picture. The hares were at a distance enabling me to capture the environment surrounding the event. I was freezing, but the picture was reward enough!”

Monochrome Highly Commended: “Whale Shark” by Rick Beldegreen, United States of America

I photographed this Whale Shark during their annual migration through Isla Mujeres, Mexico. As only snorkelling is allowed around the fish, I was at the water’s surface as this Whale Shark swam directly beneath me. I was perfectly positioned to shoot directly downward as this 30ft long fish cruised below. Two remora fish can be seen over the whale shark’s left pectoral fin and the sun’s rays frame the animal perfectly.

Monochrome Highly Commended: “Air Fight” by Csaba Daróczi, Hungary

“I took this picture near the village of Bócsa in the Kiskunság National Park, Hungary. Here, the Rabbits live in big colonies. The males often jump to the air and fight with other over females or territory. In this case, they had a fight over territory. I came across this particular colony by accident so, as I had never taken pictures of Rabbits before, I decided to try. I visited them 72 times from March to October as I wanted to capture as many chapters of their lives as possible. It was an amazing experience to watch the life of the colony over this period.”

Monochrome Highly Commended: “Shortness of Breath” by Csaba Daróczi, Hungary

“At the end of summer, I spent some time photographing birds on a lake. I would arrive at the lake and go to the hide in darkness ready for the dawn. By 8am I had usually finished taking pictures. One morning as I made my way home, I heard strange noises near a sluice. When I got closer, I saw these brown bullheads. In the extreme heat, the water had run out of oxygen, so these fish were gulping for air, trying to survive.”

Monochrome Highly Commended: “Translucent” by Kai Kolodziej, Austria

“While visiting the Borneo rainforest, I photographed many of the numerous frogs I saw on the trip. As amphibians are mainly active during the night, I had to work with flash most of the time. But this individual was photographed in the morning. I saw this frog resting on this wonderful big and heavily structured leaf, but every attempt to photograph it from above failed and the pictures didn’t turn out well. So, I decided to use a flash and photographed the silhouette of the resting frog through the leaf from beneath.”

Monochrome Highly Commended: “Moose” by Andrew McLachlan, Canada

“In June of 2021 I had the opportunity to spend the day with a fellow photographer and friend paddling Hailstorm Creek in Ontario’s Algonquin Provincial Park to photograph Moose. We did not encounter any until we were making our way back out of the creek, when we came upon this massive bull. He was backlit and in full sun, but the heavy contrast was wonderful for creating a black and white conversion.”

Monochrome Highly Commended: “Lioness and Cub” by Nicki Ryan, United Kingdom

“The image was taken in Kenya in the Masai Mara whilst in a safari vehicle. We spotted a lioness with three cubs, and we spent about two hours just watching them play. Another lioness was very close by, and one of the cubs was constantly running away. On one occasion he ran up to the other lioness, she was not happy with the encounter and pushed him into a ditch which is when the mother came over to retrieve him. I took the shot as she emerged from the ditch into the sunlight with the cub in her mouth.”

Monochrome Highly Commended: “Spider’s Web” by Rachel Piper, United Kingdom

“This photograph of a spider’s web was taken on a March morning not long after the rain had disappeared. I spotted it on my garden gate and was captivated by the jewel-like quality of the water droplets that had been captured by it. I am fascinated by webs, and the fact that spiders have an innate knowledge of how to spin them never ceases to amaze me.”

Monochrome Wildart Young Category Winner: “Young Rabbit” by Tamás Koncz-Bisztricz. Hungary

“I regularly visit a soda-lake near my hometown called Bokrosi Kis-Sóstó and the Nagy-Sóstó with my father. The road which leads to this place is called “Határ út”, which means “border road” because it is situated between two counties, Csongrád and Bács-Kiskun. Near this road I spotted a Hare in the sunflower field. I tried to get as close as possible to the Hare, and finally I was happy to have the opportunity to take a photo with an interesting perspective.”

Winning Photos Of Astronomy Photographer Of The Year 2021

The winner of Astronomy Photographer of the Year 13 has been revealed. The remarkable winning images were revealed in a virtual awards ceremony on Thursday 16 September 2021.

The Royal Observatory Greenwich has announced the winners of its 13th annual astronomy photographer of the year competition, with the £10,000 (about $13,793) top prize awarded for a beautiful photo of a solar eclipse titled “The Golden Ring.”

The winning photographer

Shuchang Dong has been crowned the overall winner of Astronomy Photographer of the Year for this mesmerising photograph The Golden Ring. The image shows an annular solar eclipse taken in the Ali region of Tibet on 21 June 2020.

“This place has year-round sunny weather, but in front of the annular eclipse, I saw dark clouds all over the sky,” recalls photographer Shuchang Dong.

“We were waiting with anxious minds but we were lucky. Within a minute of the annular eclipse, the sunshine penetrated through the clouds and afterwards the Sun was sucked into the thick clouds. We were so lucky here!”

The judges praised the image for combining the science, art and technological ingenuity of astronomy photography.

“Our Sun can still be seen as a ring circling the Moon as it passes in front of the Sun, and mountains on the lunar surface can be seen hiding some of this light on the lower righthand portion of the image,” points out judge Emily Drabek-Maunder.

Fellow judge Steve Marsh calls it “moody, serene, perfectly captured and expertly processed. You feel as if you could reach into the sky and place this onto your finger.”

Aurorae winner

Polar Lights Dance by Dmitrii Rybalka (Russia)

“I’m intrigued by this image. It is both beautiful but extremely unsettling. The juxtaposition of the vividness of the green with the inky blue of the ship is so dense, almost like velvet. However the lack of any sign of human life on this steadily moving vessel feels like the opening scene of a science fiction film.”

Galaxies winner

The Milky Ring by Zhong Wu (China)

“This cosmic circle is one of the most breathtaking entries we saw this year. The balance of colours, from the glowing upper half of the ring, to the darker, moodier bottom half, seems to encompass a whole range of majesty and beauty. The dedication of the photographer, who took almost two years to piece this picture together, must be applauded too.”

Our Moon winner

Beyond the Limb by Nicolas Lefaudeux (France)

“This is how the Solar System might look to a space traveller. Cosmic distance and celestial objects can be seen from a new perspective in one single image.”

People and Space winner

Lockdown by Deepal Ratnayaka (UK)

“This picture made me emotional because it is a beautiful snapshot of what we as humans collectively experienced during this pandemic – being confined within our four walls gazing thoughtfully out of our windows in hope. A beautifully moving image.”

Planets, Comets and Asteroids winner

A Colourful Quadrantid Meteor by Frank Kuszaj (USA)

“A unique image of a colourful meteor. No doubt this is one of the luckiest captures out there, but at the same time there is an absolutely amazing and inspiring story behind the image. Hard work, some share of luck and great image processing.”

Skyscapes winner

Luna Dunes by Jeffrey Lovelace (USA)

“This image was one of my favourites this year. It is beautifully composed with the subtle textures in the sand and sky complementing the crescent well. I loved the colours too – navy blue and gold – giving this picture a regal touch.”

Stars and Nebulae winner

California Dreamin’ NGC 1499 by Terry Hancock (UK)

“The colour choices made in the capture and processing of this image are beautiful enough on their own, yet they are not just for show and reveal much more about the nebula itself. A brilliant idea with brilliant execution.”

Young Astronomy Photographer of the Year winner

Family Photo of the Solar System by 至璞 王, aged 15 (China)

“All families are unconventional, so I adored this fresh, gently playful concept around the Solar System. A meaningful, technically accomplished work from a rising star of astronomical photography.”

The Manju Mehrotra Family Trust Prize for Best Newcomer

Falcon 9 soars past the Moon by Paul Eckhardt (USA)

“The right target, the right moment, the right composition. These three aspects make this image a special one among many astrophotos and many spacecraft transit lunar images. This image couldn’t be planned – it is a result of good situational awareness of a talented photographer.”

The Annie Maunder Prize for Image Innovation – joint winners

Celestial Fracture by Leonardo Di Maggio (UK)

“The grace of Saturn and its magnificent rings still remains even when presented as an angular jigsaw shattered into smithereens. A striking piece of art which would look fantastic taking up the entire wall of a skyscraper lobby.”

Sheep in Congress. Wildlife Commended. “In the north of Israel, I documented during summer and winter a herd of 1,500 sheep which became more than 1,900 heads.

(Photo by Yoel Robert Assiag/Drone Photography Awards 2021)


Shark Companion. Sport Commended. A lone kayaker is escorted by a group of sharks. Every year from December to April, a school of dusky sharks arrives to the area near the Hadera power station in Israel.

Pink-Footed Geese Meeting the Winter. Overall Winner. Thousands of pink-footed geese roost in central Norway in spring, on their way to breeding grounds on Svalbard in the Arctic. Probably because of the climate crisis, they arrive earlier every year and often the ground and the fields where they feed are covered by snow. The geese tend to use the same paths, and this photo was taken when waiting for them in the air. (Photo by Terje Kolaas/Drone Photography Awards 2021)
