    Super! I wanted to do something similar to this like a year ago, but instead of the black cardboard, some old TVs. [:

    Killer!

    how exactly is this done?

    • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ jeffhamada

      im pretty sure its two photos taken from the same spot (tripod) one with the figure, one without. the photos laid on top of one another, the shape is removed from the shot with the figure to reveal the empty space of the second photo. simple and effective

    Guess we are, at last, able to see your true colors, and that’s why I love you, so don’t be afraid to let them show! Peace!

    @JEFFHAMADA and @HANNA … we’ve been debating it’s method as a “mirror trick” with the subject holding a mirror and a mirror set up at just the right angle facing the subject near the photographer

    • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ jeffhamada

      i can see how it might look like that but it’s not – its definitely the landscape showing behind the subject

      • http://www.twitter.com/amyleew Amy Lee

        i agree. i was on the other side of the “mirror trick” debate. either way… it’s extra cool, love it!

      The easiest way to do this would to be to take a picture without the girl first the one with her with the black cardboard. then to photo shop the background in with any shape you like. The black cardboard would make it easy to because it very distinguishable from the actual background. A nice simple idea that has made some very nice photos. Although maybe they did it a different way, I am not by any means an expert on these matters.

Music Video: Rapper Dumbfoundead’s Hilarious Response to Hollywood ‘Whitewashing’

dumbfoundead-safe

Hollywood whitewashing has been in the news a lot lately. One catalyst being the announcement earlier this year that Scarlett Johansson landed a lead role in the remake of Ghost in the Shell, and many wondering why it couldn’t have gone to someone of Asian descent. Korean rapper Dumbfoundead (Jonathan Park) offers up a humorous response, adding himself into a montage of blockbuster films and popular television shows, playing everyone from John Snow to Danny Tanner.

Park told to NBC News that he “wanted to flip the script on the conversation everybody was having about the whitewashing of Hollywood and ‘yellow-wash’ some of the most iconic films starring white male leads.”

This is definitely one of my favourite music videos this year! Watch Dumbfoundead’s “Safe” on Booooooom TV.
