Woman Hospitalized After Posing with Venomous Octopus for Photo Contest

Jamie Bisceglia took the fateful picture on August 2nd at a Tacoma Narrows fishing derby. Some fishermen she met up with had hooked the octopus, and she decided to take a picture with it attached to her face for the derby’s photo contest. “It was a photo contest in the derby,” she told the news station. “So, crazy me, hindsight now and looking back, I probably made a big mistake.”

Once the octopus had latched onto her face with its tentacles, it bit her in the cheek twice, injecting venom that left Bisceglia in “incredible pain.” Her face swelled up and, after 2 days of holding out in the hopes that the pain or swelling might fade, she finally went to the ER.

Kim Kardashian’s Photographer Marcus Hyde Accused of Soliciting Nudes from Aspiring Model

In her screenshots of their alleged conversation, she claimed that he asked her for nude photos in exchange for a free photo session. However, when she declined and said that she was only “comfortable shooting lingerie and partial nudity,” he allegedly responded with: “It’s 2k then.”

“Yeah you wack,” she said, according to her screenshot of their private messages. “Find someone else,” he said. “I’ll keep shooting celebs.”

The 33-year-old photographer has worked with Grande, Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, Childish Gambino, Chance the Rapper, Jhené Aiko and more.

Cavs Vs Warriors, Game 1, 2017 NBA Finals

 

New trend in the photography world: Dramatic, in-game still shots, shot with flash. Pics above are from Game 1 of the 2017 NBA Finals (Cleveland Cavaliers vs Golden State Warriors). Watch the game close. You can see flashes firing all the time. It gets annoying when you start to notice. They did the exact same thing last year.

Check it out for yourself, especially plays #2 and #1:

Art Brewer was guest speaking at my school. Had a good chat with him after the lecture and pretty much told me to stay at it with the graphic design. And that’s just what I’m gonna do!
