The Christian satire news outlet The Babylon Bee is reporting that Canon has begun including a “professional photographer” certificate with all its cameras that cost $599 and up.
“If you spend at least $599 on a camera, you’re instantly transformed into a professional photographer, and now you have the documentation to prove it,” a Canon spokesperson tells The Babylon Bee. “In a lot of professions, you have to take classes or practice for years before you truly become a professional, but not in photography.

When “normal” people visit famous landmarks these days, they commonly pull out their phones and snap a selfie to keep as a memory of being there. Artist Stephanie Leigh Rose does something different: she shoots “anti-selfies” of herself “dying.”
Rose says the project, titled STEFDIES, is a photographic performance art series.
“STEFDIES is a photographic performance art series that chronicles a life,” Rose writes. “Each photo is an ‘anti-selfie’ that strives to get back to the roots of what a photograph was intended to be: a captured moment in time.”
ASMR videos have exploded in popularity over the past few years. Capitalizing on this trend, photographer Noe Alonzo of South Korea made this 6-minute tongue-in-cheek video titled “Camera ASMR” with sounds photography lovers will appreciate (you may need to turn up your sound for the full effect).
“Deep soothing relaxing camera ASMR photography sounds to help your fragile photographer ego fall asleep,” Alonzo writes. “The camera sounds that will give you the tingles and jingles to a deep slumber.”
If you’re not familiar with ASMR, the acronym stands for “autonomous sensory meridian response.” It’s the tingling sensation people
