Though it's a commonly used term in the photography world, opinions vary on how the word “bokeh” should be pronounced. The term is said to come from the Japanese word “boke,” which translates as “blur” or, in some cases, “senility.”

Last fall we published a series of fun quizzes and thankfully no one took them, or themselves, too seriously. Well, we’re doing it again. They’re a bit easier this time except for the first four and the last nine. Tell us how you scored in the comments. And no peeking at Google. Ready?

We’ve all been there: You’re in a scenic spot about to take a selfie of you and a companion, when a passerby offers to take the shot for you. So you accept the kind gesture and hand the person your phone. Unfortunately, if you forget to turn off the phone’s selfie mode and wait until later to look at the results, the photograph may not be what you expected.

Sometimes the best camera is the one that’s with you. Or in the case of Nick Colvin, it was his iPhone.

The late Bruce Mozert was an American photographer who gained acclaim in the late 1930s for photographing pretty pin-ups posing underwater. As you can see, what made his portraits particularly unusual (apart from the fact they were shot underwater) was that his models were often posed as though they were going about their daily lives on land.

It’s almost Super Bowl time, so we thought we’d turn to Gavin Free and Dan Gruchy (AKA the Slow Mo Guys) to see what happens when an over-inflated football explodes while being captured at hundreds of times slower than you can see with your own eyes.

I shared this on my personal Facebook page yesterday and it’s made the rounds of social media, but it’s definitely worth a watch if you haven’t seen it already. (And probably worth a re-watch even if you have seen it already.)

While the humorous video below is from 2011, it’s getting a lot of love on Reddit right now so we thought we’d give it a share. You’ll not only learn the four-minute method for shooting a photograph, but you might even feel a little less guilty for not owning a camera with the latest high-speed processing and focusing capabilities.

No longer confined to the seamier side of show biz and politics, Fake News has become a mainstream source of misinformation for virtually all industries and disciplines. What you are about to read is obviously true because it has been published online by a respected source. With that caveat, here’s the latest from the world of photography and beyond.

Here are the rules: every item described herein is small enough to fit inside a reasonably normal stocking and each is something that every photographer will appreciate. Price was not part of the selection process, nor was foot size.

This video from The 8-Bit Guy is a heck of a lot of fun for those of us who remember using early digital cameras that recorded images and videos to floppy disks, super disks and CDs. Ok, we’re showing our age but who cares?

Well now if this isn’t incredibly frustrating! Susan L. Angstadt, a staff photographer at the Reading Eagle in Pennsylvania spent all day Friday preparing to capture the spectacular demolition of some local smokestacks for the newspaper only to get “photobombed” at the last second by a guy with an iPhone who leapt in front of her.

Here at Shutterbug we’re not big proponents of destroying perfectly good camera gear just for kicks. But once in a while we can’t resist sharing a video like this one, in which a working Canon SLR camera is cut in half with a 60,000 PSI waterjet—just to see what’s inside.

Florida-based photographer Bryan Troll decided to get serious about Halloween this year and forego the typical zombie or political candidate costume. Instead, he celebrated the festivities by becoming a fully functional Nikon DSLR.
