EVA-1 Shinji Ikari
It’s not often I get talk about both anime and photography, Pentax are releasing an Evangelion themed Q10 DSLR in April, sadly it’s Japan only and they are only making 1,500 of each model so the chances of getting your grubby mitts on one is fairly low. But you can dream.
It’s going to clock in at 59,800 Yen ($660 or a little over £400) for that that you get a 12.4 megapixel, mirrorless interchangable lens camera which can also shoot video in fill HD.
It’s apparently not just going to come in the above EVA-1 colour palette but will be available in the other EVA models as well.

The Mary Sue are running a Bladerunner fan art contest, It’s worth going over there to look at the submissions, most of which are mostly photography based and quite cool. I really like the above submission by diablo2003 partly because it’s awesome but also because it makes me want a Bladerunner Anime… I might have to watch AD Police tonight…
In case you were wondering AD Police is an Anime that was a spin off of Bubblegum Crisis, Bubblegum Crisis is Awesome and heavily inspired by Bladerunner, but AD Police is a more nitty gritty police drama.
Do you like both photography an cooking? Do you like to have items lying about your house that looks like photography kit but isn’t really then maybe you should buy the The f/60 Lens Kitchen Timer at the Photojojo Store! It’s pretty much what it says on the tin, a kitchen timer that presumably goes up to sixty minutes that looks like an SLR lens.
Unlike the SLR Lens Mugs you can get this one doesn’t seem to be shaped like any particular manufacturer’s lens it just looks like a lens. Still quite cool, I’d consider it if it went to f/120 I think f/60 is a little limiting.

Here is a picture of a Llama that I took last year while at Blair Drummond Safari park, it came up as a recommended image by Zemanta for another post I was writing. Here also is a picture of a Tiger I took during the same trip. See I do photography as well as random nerdery!

Lastly here is another Llama, because… Llama!

I’m not sure if this is make-up or Photoshop but it looks cool either way. This image set entitles Tutti Frutti by Senju-HiMe is whimsical and exhibits a wonderful use of colour.

I’m sure I know a fair few people who would love these wedding invites, they are made from re-purposed film cannisters (soon to be a rare comodity?) . These were put together by Trevor and Larissa of ambient studios.
As two passionate photographers we decided to try to turn our mutual obsession with photography into a theme. Since both Trevor & I enjoy shooting film on the side for personal projects it seemed only natural that we integrate this somehow into our day. (apart from actually supplying our photographers with film for their cameras of course!)
The result is a collaboration between Trevor & I and an invitation that took an assembly line of 5 to create. We had to make about 40 after all was said and done and I was lucky enough to have the help of my ladies and a little bit of wine! (Thanks girls!) It was tons of fun and completely worth it…
Men-Ups is a project by art student Rion Sabeam, in which he took pictures of male models in poses more normally associated with female pin-ups.

The above image is of Swedish photographer mebay and is entitled Ying Yang, it’s nothing short of creepy what a difference a little makeup can do, and the darkness the right side of her face makes what I assume is her un-made up side look really surreal. She re-tried the same concept in the blelow image entitled True Self but I don’t think it’s quite as evocative as her first attempt.

The Tumblr this was posted on is Japanese and the post it refers to is Russian and no longer there. The picture brought a smile to my face though…
It it wrong I appreciate this picture more for the creative use of DOF than I do for the probably quite attractive girl in it?
The Image is apparently called Red, Whiskey and Blue, and is available in higher resolution over at ~TroutImagery’s Deviant Art Page.
