To Capture The Perfect Shot, This Clever Photographer Had To Do The Belly Flop

Now that’s dedication, man! LOL!

Contrary to common opinion, it takes more than using a fancy camera to produce a great photograph.

For the most part, it takes a lot of talent and effort to come up with catchy and memorable shots. Actually, there are even some instances when a photographer literally has to step outside his or her comfort zone and do something insane just to get that effective photo. Case in point, this photographer from Japan personally had to do some belly flops just to create the needed effect for his photo. Known on Twitter by his handle snowfairy88, this clever photographer chose to jump in a pool to achieve a splashing background effect for his model.

The result, as you can guess, is both impressive and hilarious. Personally, I can’t help but admire the dedication.

Scroll down and see for yourself:

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the photos and video attracted a lot of attention online. Everyone was totally blown away with snowfairy88’s unusual approach to photography.

We did a little digging though and we found out that this actually wasn’t the first time he utilized his unorthodox technique. Back in 2014, he also did a belly flop to make epic splashes for his model.

Korean Designer Transforms Functional Furniture From 2D To 3D

This collapsible furniture is the future.

By

A great execution of creativity is shown in the work of Korean Jongha Choi as part of his senior thesis at the Design Academy in Eindhoven, The Netherlands. The designer was able to incorporate innovation, functionality, art, design, and convenience by coming up with collapsible furniture, from two-dimensional to three-dimensional shapes.

According to Choi, his project called "De-dimension" is 'a physical manifestation of his condition," a vision problem he had as a child. The designer currently wears contact lens in just one eye and recalls that he would acquire injuries because of his difficulty to perceive space or figure out how three dimensional is different from two-dimensional.

Choi playfully turns a functional 3D table or a chair into a 2D flat object..
