Nikon D800 Video AMAZING!!!!

Here is the first video I have seen produced entirely on the Nikon D800 using Nikkor lenses.  All I can say is amazing.  I have not been much into video but with the introduction of the Nikon D800 that may all change.  Always try to expand your thinking into new horizons.  Keep life interesting.  Enjoy the video by Sandro.

Address is Approximate

Stop motion animation is nothing new to the world of video creation but with the lowering costs of camera and support equipment the world is opening up to the so called, "Average man."  I came across this short animation and it has quickly become my favorite.  The immersive journey and emotion comes out magnificently drawing me into the story.  The director Tom Jenkins is to be commended for his creativity and vision for this story of a small desk toy that longs to escape the confines of his office tomb.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Backgrounds in Motion

For those who are looking for a cool new project or are looking for a great new look for your photos give this a try.  The Slanted Lens brings us another great video showing some very interesting techniques in order to achieve a nice motion background blur.  I also saw Joe McNally do a similar shot using a moving fire engine that came out awesome.  With a little effort and proper setup you can create some great new looks for your clients.  Check out the video for the details and keep on creating.

Searching for the LIght with Tom Hido

Every once and a while I will come across a photographer that really inspires me to dig deeper in order to move past the mundane and boring and strive for perfection.  Todd Hido is one such photographer.  When I viewed his body of work I was struck by the realism in a sea of over processed, over saturated and just plain blaahhhhh photos out there.  I knew there was something different about Todd's work besides just the captivating subjects and the minimalism he brings to his photos.  The photos had a great depth to them in tonality and color but were real and tangible to my eye.  He also, get ready for this, shoots film yes you heard right film.  Todd prefers to use a Pentax 6X7 SLR for his body of work.  I love his reasoning which is if it isn't broke don't fix it.  He shoots with 400 speed color negative film and processes his own prints in his darkroom.  I am of the opinion that the nest in fine art images are still being produced on medium format film or larger formats.  His personal art does inspire me to look further within myself then project outward my photographic desires.  This is a great interview with Todd done a short while ago which helps you peer into his way of seeing.  I hope you are as enlightened as I was.  Enjoy.
