Power of Genetics

Canada-based photographer and graphic designer Ulric Collette came up with his "Genetic Portraits" series while trying to age his son in Photoshop. It all began when he accidentally spliced together photographs of himself and his son, and the rest is history. As you can tell from the example above, the new combined faces show genetics at work, and actually look quite normal at first glance. Continue reading for more.

Inside Instruments

Photographer Mierswa Kluska teamed up with designers Mona Sibai and Bjorn Ewers to come up with a creative print campaign for the Berlin Philharmonic orchestra, and what happened next is something you'd expect to see in a fantasy film. The team used macro photographs taken inside the cramped spaces of instruments - violin, cello, flute, and pipe organ - to make them appear as cavernous rooms that can be walked around in. So wonderfully done. Click here to view the first image in this week's WINS gallery. Continue reading for a viral video of an incredible 60-sided geodesic dome carved entirely from wood.

Photographer David Lane recently spent 4-months at Yellowstone National Park to capture images of the night sky that will take your breath away. The artist grabbed his camera immediately after a storm had passed around the Abyss Pool area, and captured the incredible, Milky Way-filled sight before him. To make sure the images would match the natural colors that can be seen at Yellowstone during the day, Lane spent an additional 4-months color-correcting the images. "Get away from the light, drive out 20-30 miles out of town, and look up on a clear dark night. You may see something that will forever change your life. This is what a galaxy looks like from the inside," said Lane. Click here to view the first image in this week's funny Facebook status updates gallery.

Perfectly Timed Photo

Timing is everything, and when it comes to photography, that could mean waiting hours for the moon to align with a passing sailboat or just taking pictures at an air show and having a bird photobomb you. One thing's for sure, you don't need expensive equipment, though we do recommend a modern smartphone camera at the very least, to ensure your shots are haze-free. Continue reading for more.

Funny Animal Using Camera

There are skateboarding dogs, cats that can play keyboards, and apparently, animals who just might have been camera operators / photographers in past lives. Above, we have a koala that seems to have taken over a television broadcast, and filled in for whoever was there before. Not every animal is capable of using such complex equipment, but having a pet that knows how to operate a point-and-shoot camera would be good enough for most road trips. Continue reading for more.

Burning Roses

Ars Thanea, a creative production house from Warsaw, Poland, created "The Ash", a bouquet of roses that was covered in ash and lit by a burning coal fire below. The final result looks like something straight from a science fiction movie. The team said: "So we knew that this time there will be no space for any of 3D tools, we are used to on every day basis. We decided to create everything form a scratch, there would be anything 'alive' in this project. Firstly, we used various of materials to built the shape of flowers. Then we painted and fully covered them with the material which looks like a volcanic ash. Then we finished it up with a real burning coal, and to fulfill the gaps between the roses, we decided to use a red light, which gave the feel of a glowing. The second part was to take some photos of burning coal only, using the same perspective - it was easier afterwards, to digitally compose all the layers. As the final result was that we got a big and very detailed picture - which, to be honest, would take a much more time to achieve if we would use our regular 3D tool."

Hidden Pool Himalayas

Drones are good for many things, including discovering hidden glacial pools in the Himalayas. While no additional information was provided, you can see that a professional photography (or two) made it up to this previously unknown spot to take some long-exposure photos, stars and all. It's only a matter of time before rugged drones, capable of surviving missions to arctic regions, will stumble upon something truly earth shattering, like Middle Earth, or so we'd like to dream.
