Getting Tasered is by no means anything but pleasant. A Taser is a specific brand for electroshock weapons or a conductive electrical weapon or CEW made available by Taser International as a self-defense weapon. The Taser gun uses electrical current to stop voluntary control of muscles resulting in neuromuscular incapacitation. A person struck by a Taser will undergo stimulation of his or her sensory nerves and motor nerves, and will thus experience powerful involuntary muscle convulsions.

Photographer Alison Turner recently spent close to a month in New Zealand, and she was greeted by a rather unpleasant experience on her very first stop. All her personal effects were stolen, but luckily her wallet, passport and cell phone were spared in the theft. Not one to allow a spoiler to ruin the rest of her trip, she used the camera of her cell phone to shoot pictures of what she would see throughout the rest of the trip. Ever the inventive artist, she used a unique and distinct twist for perspective. Turner shot all her pictures framing them with the window of the van she was riding.
German designer Nora Luther and photographer Pavel Becker recently joined forces again to create this amazing collection of images called Recipe Photography Concept. What it does is show all the needed ingredients for some dishes, but floating in mid-air. No doubt the collaboration to create this impressive series is quite inventive as you see each ingredient suspended and floating.
As usual, aerial views always offer a much more exciting sight, regardless of what you are shooting. Chicago is certainly no exception and it looks spectacular from the air. Add to that some dense fog and you have near perfect conditions for shooting such an iconic city. Chicago local Michael Salisbury did just that as he snapped some extraordinary photos of the fog engulfing Chicago this summer.
Photographer Bernhard Lang’s Aerial Views Adria is a series that he shot while taking to the skies to document the sea of humanity on the beaches off the Mediterranean coast. What he is able to show is that in the perspective of height and distance we are all tiny creatures of much less significance than we perceive. The Adriatic Sea is where Byzantine, Roman, and Venetian sailors in addition to today’s ocean-lovers have all appreciated its glowing, brilliant waters.
