Beth Ostrosky Doesn’t Like Howard Stern Tweeting Nakey Photos Of Her

"He's taken up a new hobby, photography. I'll be in the bathtub, and there he is, with the camera, and suddenly the pictures are up on Twitter. We have a new policy: He can take all the pictures he likes, but I have to be able to approve the ones that he tweets out." —Beth…

Guess Which Company’s Advertisement Now Boasts This Racy Photo

Lagerfeld’s Bacchanalian Calendar Shoot Includes Man With Golden Bulge

For the 2011 Pirelli Calendar (an artsy annual that's featured the original work of Richard Avedon, Annie Leibovitz, and Mario Testino, to name a few), Karl Lagerfeld took over as photographer to create a Grecian-inspired shoot.

The Perfect Pop

Photographer Edward Horsford has really good timing -- which is how he's able to take such jaw-dropping photos of balloons as they pop. Incredibly, Horsford works alone, using a timer and a flash to capture the absolute perfect balloon-popping moment. We love how he captures the balloon's moment of release. [Neatorama]…

Limited-Edition DVF Camera On AHALife … Wait, What Is AHALife?

Cameras and social networking go hand-in-hand. Both make it possible to take your friends on your journey with you, even if they're across the country. But for some moments of creativity or inspiration, a simple smartphone camera just won't do. Instead, you need something that packs a stylish technological punch. Enter Diane Von Furstenberg'…

Time Capsule: Color Film From 1922

This clip from a 1922 Kodak color film test is one of the earlier color films in existence. Watching it, I can't help wondering about the actresses shown. What were their lives like on the heels of women's suffrage and the cusp of the flipper era? Were they married? Did they go on to have…

It's tiny and cute as hell, but also packs the punch of multiple and longtime exposure buttons, extra flash, and a fish-eye viewfinder. Bonus point…

Jumping Through The Ages

As far as editorials go, few things are more fun than a good jump shot. And while Caroline Trentini's Vogue leap (pictured) has epitomized the jump shot for the past several seasons, she owes her inspiration to photographer Phillipe Hallsman, the man who more or less invented the technique. Hallsman captured everyone from Marilyn Monroe…
