Redditor ProfessorLaser makes a clever point about the ultimate cliche of African landscape photography:

1) Select a base image
2) Cut and paste in a picture of a giraffe
3) Darken base image by increasing saturation level

Omote 3D Shashin Kan is the world's first 3D portrait studio that uses a handheld scanner to produce a three-dimensional scale model of your entire body, which is then sculpted into a intricate plastic figurine. Created by Japanese advertising and branding company PARTY and located in Tokyo's youthful Harajuku neighborhood, the studio offers three different sizes for your luxurious mini-me sculpture: 3.9 inches (¥21,000 / $258), 5.9-inches (¥32,000 / $394) and 7.8-inches (¥42,000 / $517). It's hard to call it a downside, but 3D printing isn't exactly a instantly gratifying process and the models take about a month to complete.
