The competition between Apple iPhone and Samsung Galaxy has lasted for years. Now it’s shown in Samsung’s new ad titled Growing Up. In this ad, Samsung mocks the competition with iPhone, and naturally, displays Galaxy as superior in several aspects – from screen size to water resistance.
Being a maid of honor is a big privilege and carries great responsibility. Sharilyn Wester performed her duty and made her best friend’s wedding photos unforgettable.
While Rebecca Foster and her husband James did the wedding photoshoot, Sharilyn proposed to take some photos where she’ll be tossing the bride’s veil. Photographer Ashley Hempel agreed, and in no time, Sharilyn took her task. But it turned out her and the bride had a different idea in mind, and Sharylin started acting so goofy, that both the groom and the photographer were caught by surprise.
In the sea of Craigslist ads or eBay auctions, you need to find a way to stand out if you want to get noticed and reach a good price. This is exactly what filmmaker Max Lanman did: he filmed a full-scale commercial for his girlfriend’s 1996 Honda Accord. And he did such a good job, that he got an offer 68x times higher than the car’s actual value.
Photographing volcanoes can be dangerous, but it’s certainly an experience to remember. Israel-based photographer Erez Marom traveled to Hawaii to try it for himself, and he captured the magnificent view of hot lava flows. But there was a price to pay – and he paid with his gear.
He used a drone to get some aerial shots. But at one point, he got too close and the hot lava melted the plastic. Fortunately, Erez still managed to save the photos, and he kindly shared them with DIYP. And although his drone is destroyed – it was definitely worth it.
It’s been a long, long time since title sequences were made in camera, by optically projecting the titles frame by frame on film. It’s all digitally made now. Stranger Things, Netflix’s 80’s themed series has taken a cue from the 80’s not only on the content of the show, but also on how its titles were made.
The logo in the opening is not CGIed at all, it is actually shot in camera and then manipulated in a computer.
You might not have heard the name Drew Geraci before, but you’ve almost certainly seen his work. At least, you’ll have seen it if you’ve ever watched the opening sequence of hit TV show, House of Cards. Because Drew shot it.
In this timelapse film for Sony Alpha Universe, Drew heads to New Zealand to show off the timelapse capabilities of the new Sony A7R III. and it’s a breathtaking film. Of course, it was shot in New Zealand, so it’s bound to be.
When I first started watching this short film, I thought it was a promotional piece. After all, Polaroid just announced its new OneStep 2 camera a couple of months ago. It was released a couple of weeks ago, so, thinking it might be a Halloween advert to get the word out is a logical assumption to make.
But no, this is the creation of filmmaker Joey Greene and a wonderfully talented, but small, crew of people. It starts off with what appears to be a guy moving into a new place, unpacking his boxes. When he pulls out a Polaroid OneStep, he opens it up and it goes off in his hand. Out pops a picture. So, he decides to have a play with it.
I’ve seen some rather interesting Halloween photos cross my desk over the past week or so. Few that are quite as interesting as this project from photographer Markus Hofstätter, though. Shooting some Halloween portraits on large format wet plate. Best of all, he shot a behind the scenes video showing how it was done. While it’s not a 360° video, it makes some fairly heavy use of a 360° camera, with some pretty cool effects and transitions.
