Amazon is moving into another sector: photo printing. 

The e-commerce giant this week debuted a new service called Amazon Prints that allows customers to print their digital photos and order souvenirs like photo books, stationery and calendars.

So far, that market has been dominated by companies like Shutterfly, which has offered similar options since its founding in 1999. Shutterfly’s stock plunged 12 percent in one day after news broke of Amazon’s entry into the market, Bloomberg reported

Amazon Prints is only available to customers who use Amazon Drive, the company’s cloud storage service. Photos must be stored on the platform to be printed through Amazon Prints.  Read more…

DreamsTransmigration

DreamsTransmigration

Agnieszka Wąsik

I decided to develop a subject which is present in almost every religion – the rebirth. According to C.G Jung, dreaming is a basic human experience relating to the reincarnation. The photographs are conceptual and visual interpretations of a text, that I have written on the basis of my own dreams.

The title of the text is “Where I have been?” and the answers are parts of my dreams, which I have written down.

The text is about one page long, so I decided to place here only a part of it:

“I was standing on the field, looking nowhere, courageously touching distinct matter. I was lying there until the spring came. People linked to each other by certain colors. I climbed an enormous peak during a whole season. I was enchanted by the power of churches and I looked for the most immense one. I was staying very close, almost touching the wall and I was looking upwards full of admiration for their predominance. Nothing more happened, because it was already covered with time. I worked as pyromaniac, my boss was fat and afraid of fire. I wrote a six-line poem in order to verify if I dreamed, supposedly I did not. I departed for vast, magnificent and chilly grassland. When I fell down on the sand, the future returned again.”

The entire work is my personal and intuitive consideration about transmigration.

This Post-Apocalyptic Engagement Shoot Is Totally Badass

Their love can survive anything.

1. After Chris Love and Kara Kyser got engaged at Comic Con last fall, they decided to have a little fun with their engagement photos.

“We’re both geeks,” Love, 35, told BuzzFeed Life. “Kara is a gamer and cosplayer. I’m more a movie geek, I guess, and dabble in the realm of cosplay too. Between the two of us we hatched the idea of this post-apocalyptic theme – nukes, not zombies – from our mutual interests.”

2. The Kansas City couple hired photographer Joshua Hoffine to shoot their photos. Here’s how they turned out…

“The video game series Fallout is one of my favorites,” Kyser, 25, told BuzzFeed Life. “I’ve always been intrigued by the idea of a post-nuclear fallout and the resourcefulness of people surviving it.”

3. “We thought it would be fun to kind of tell this story where we got married, but then the fallout happened, but it’s OK because we managed to survive and are still rocking our wedding day attire,” she said.

4. Hoffine photographed them at Missouri’s Belvoir Winery, which is the site of an old orphanage and nursing home and is rumored to be haunted.

As for their attire and props, Love said the tuxedo belonged to his grandfather and the wedding dress came from his sister-in-law. They rented the guns and ammo from a shop called Have Guns, Will Rent, which he said “exists in the shadier part of KC.”

5. Love and Kyser, who will be married this September, are thrilled with how their photos turned out.

“Probably the best pictures either of us have been in,” Love said.

6. “So many people have told us how cool it is we went with something different from the standard ‘cuddling with each other in a grassy meadow’ engagement shoot,” Kyser said.
