ffffinally!

I ffffinally got myself an invite to ffffound! Hooray. For whatever reason it is next to impossible to get an invite to join the site.

Anyways, I was poking around the site and came across these great images used to promote ffffound’s in-house t-shirts. What do you do when you can’t get a decent looking model for your photoshoot? You force Paris Hilton and Kate Moss to model your gear by ripping up the photos and sticking them together! Brilliant.

And then I remembered I had seen something similar to this recently. Evan over at Curse of the Multiples did something similar in a lookbook for a company called Industry. A little different, and pretty cool as well:

So now you have two options for shooting a lookbook with ugly models. I want to clarify that I’m not saying these models were definitely ugly, I’m just saying you have options. If you happen to be one of the models whose pretty face has been obscured and you want to prove just how beautiful you are, feel free to email me a photo of yourself along with your phone number.

  • haha nice work.
    fffoound is quite amazing, lots of good everyday inspiration.

  • Man, I’ve yet to get my hands on an invite!

  • sAkSeNaKeL

    Hahah…Hate to be one of those models. What’s the point of modeling all these clothes if no one can see you face.

    Oh yeah, the extravagant lifestyle and easy money. I stand corrected.

  • krissy if i had an invite to give you i would.

    for anyone that’s looking for one, here’s how i got mine:

    http://www.qbn.com/topics/559132/

    if you post in there you have a good chance of getting one, there’s a guy organizing it so you get one and he takes your invite and passes it on to the next person in line for one (which is why i don’t have an invite to give)

  • Addict to FFFFound.

  • how long did it take for you to get an invite? is it an exclusive club kinda thing.

    i’ve been checking out weheartit. i’ll be signing up soon. you don’t need an invite :) it’s an awesome site.

  • Rob

    photoshopped.

  • yea i signed up at weheartit as well! ffffound is the same just more people view it – i was getting a lot of hits from it and tried to dig up an invite for awhile. but if you follow that qbn link i posted i was lucky and got an invite the same day i posted in the thread

  • Courtney

Booooooom Reader Submissions: December

december-600

Here’s this month’s Reader Submissions post! Please share your work here if you’d like to be considered for a feature on Booooooom. The comments allow images to be attached so make sure post an image along with a link to your website.

One of the things that makes Booooooom unique is all the encouraging comments people send back and forth on these monthly submission posts. If you’re going to share your work please take an extra second to leave a nice comment on someone else’s work!

Voting up work is like high-fiving that person and it also helps us see what work you guys like! Remember, even if your work isn’t featured on the main site these posts can send some decent traffic to your portfolio! The link at the bottom will open up this full post, simply scroll down and use the commenting system to submit your work.

 

Submission guidelines:

 1. Please don’t flood the comments with a dozen images, just post 1 image that represents your best work along with 1 link.

2. If you see good work posted by someone upvote it so it appears at the top. This is not just a nice thing to do, it helps me see what work you actually like.

3. You can/should also encourage people who are sharing good work here! Comment on their posts and let them know you like what they’re doing. I really want to foster a community here, and this is a simple way you can connect with other people making work.

4. Keep in mind your post may not show up right away because it has an image attached. It may need to be manually approved first so don’t freak out and post a million times, once is enough.
