Some time ago the wonderful images of Elena Shumilova went viral. Suddenly there were dogs, rabbits and cute children everywhere. And I have to say – these images are extraordinary – we instantly begin to dream and to fell fuzzy. Something is going on with us while looking at these images. In some way, her work is magical.
After a while threads started popping up in forums, asking about the secrets and post production in Elena’s work.
The stuff I usually do is definitely different from soft warm portraiture, also I am not the photographer on the team – my job in the process has to do more with the technical planning of shots, lighting and retouching.
As a father of a two-year-old girl, owner of a DSLR and with a girlfriend who’s blogging, I had to expand my principles. So I started analyzing Elenas images and wrote some key elements in her images down. I did not want to copy her compositions, or wanted to recreate her image ideas – which is technically not possible, because I don’t have a big dog, or rabbit around.
The idea was “applying some of her key elements on a normal family trip”.
Instagram, the supposed “new face” of photography, celebrated its 3rd birthday earlier this month. What’s that? You weren’t invited to the party? Well, considering the usual fanfare and not-so-subtle ways in which the billion-dollar photo-sharing app usually marks its milestones, I’m actually kind of surprised that Instagram’s official entry into toddlerhood (or teens in internet years) came and went without even so much as a blip on our collective radar..
A short while ago I got three of Aputure’s Amaran LED panels. While there is a full review coming, I wanted to share my first impressions.
The Amaran LED AL-528x system is a low budget LED lighting system. The name hints on the fact that each AL-528 body consists of 528 LEDs. There are three members in the family, each with slightly different main features. I am going to quickly go over the three types and then share my first impressions. The lights sell for about $180 on Amazon which makes them a good entry level lights.[Read More…]
Photographer Ole C. Salomonsen create a yearly time lapse compilation of the Aurora Borealis.
So far his clips are amazing and Polar Spirits from this year is no different.
Here is how Ole describes his project:
“In the film I have tried to show the slower majestic dancing lights,
as well as the more faster, dramatic and abstract shows, and finally the auroras in combination with city lights and urban elements.
The video is shot using stills and assembled together for best possible resolution and dynamic range. In this video however, for the first time, I have also chosen to include some real-time video footage. This is to better show how furiously fast and beautiful the polar spirits can dance! The two sequences which are shot in real-time (in the middle of the video) could never have been recreated using still photos, regardless what camera you are using.”#
Cera Hensley, recreates fantasy worlds from everyday objects, and she does it all on a 3×3 feet table.
Cera photographs custom crafted landscapes, and completes them with miniature photos of models separately taken in front of a white backdrop. Playing with perspective and angles, the worlds are mischievous, annoying or surreal yet completely believable.
The process involves pre-visualizing the scene, building the landscape and posing the models to fit. Here are some more samples of her work along with some behind the scenes of their creations taken from two f her projects: Here Nor There and Mime Adventures.[Read More…]
MRI is used to salami objects into small slices and get a better idea about what’s inside them without breaking them open.
Cross section light painting is the exact reverse process where a photographer uses a set of images, each corresponding to a slice of the original object to recreate the salami. (OK, technically, it only recreates an image of that salami).
While it is not trivial to find such detailed slides images of the human body, there is a scientific foundation – The Visible Human Project – that aims at making such images accessible and shares two data set of such “slide” humans: A mail and a female.
Some when along 2003 photographer Jason Salavon created a rather interesting piece of art. He stacked all the centerfold images from each decade of playboy and created a super centerfold. While those super centerfolds lack any real nude, or even a clear human image, they are kinda hypnotizing as you can see from Salavon’s work below.
Photographer Pat David set out to recreate those images using ImageMagick a free image handling software. By stretching, rotating and layering the images David not only recreates the process made by Jason Salavon, but tries to add a few tricks of his own. The results are just as hypnotizing. Do you find it interesting, artsy?[Read More…]
A while back I was too cheap (lazy?) to get around to purchasing some speedlights and in typical DIY fashion for me, I figured I could replicate most results using nothing more than a flashlight. So one evening with my friend Sean and his wife, we decided to try out some long exposure light painting ideas.
To be clear, the term “light painting” is often used to describe painting light onto an image where the bulb is visible, and used to create something visual in the final result. This is NOT what I am referring to here. I’ve seen plenty that are nice, but I don’t personally have much interest in doing this:[Read More…]
