Several creatives will be joining Brian on part his road trip journey including myself as well as our new buddy Vincent LaForet.

Plus three gorgeous Brazilian triplets. But that’s not the point here.
Seriously though, I’ve seen a lot of crazy things done with the Red Epic, but I’ve never seen it shot without it’s IR pass filter. The results are the definition of ethereal. The biggest shocker to me though was that none of these shots, which included a very complicated Handheld to Rope to Handheld shot that looked like a crane shot, were all done without any post-stabilization or complicated steadicam rigs. All of the shots were done using the Movi stabilization system.

Phase One asked me to go on a speaking tour through China (Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing) to share about my photo career, creative inspiration, and being a Phase One shooter myself, to demo their innovative new IQ2 digital medium format camera back system. After flying in to Hong Kong from Washington DC just hours before, I had the great honor and pleasure to be a part of Digital Rev’s Cheap Camera Challenge. A broken Holga + jet lag + beer + a goof like myself = What could go wrong?

Sweden native Vincent Säll has created something truly magnificent. No, you can’t get it. But if Leica actually were to make this, it would be one beautiful and simple piece of recording equipment.

You’ve most certainly heard of Vincent Laforet, you just may not recognize the name. He is the mind and talent behind such short films as Reverie, Nocturne, and Mobius. In fact, when Canon was introducing video functionality into their DSLRs, they used Laforet’s footage to put it on the map. Now DigitalRev is giving him a new challenge, a LensBaby Composer and a Canon A2e. [more]
Of course, if you ever learned anything about art history, you know Vincent van Gogh has long been dead. That didn’t stop the creative mind that brought you the Blow Job series from posting the backwards claim on his blog that someone had turned his old portrait photograph into a painting. Aside from Tadao Cern putting some good humor into his work, it’s stunning to see the photo-shopped transition from painting to photograph.
Of all the light painting photographers I’ve seen, there are few who create such intricate pictures as Vincent Bruno. He cleverly plans each scene and then paints it into one shot. For most of his final products, he shows the process of painting.
