Le Miroir/The Mirror: A Creative Short & BTS Video

Le Miroir/The Mirror: A Creative Short & BTS Video

Watch as a young boy passes from childhood into his golden years in a few blinks of an eye in front of "Le Miroir" (The Mirror). This bit of creative inspiration by Directors Ramon and Pedro comes with a behind the scenes video that provides some great side by side views of what went into this clever production. This is a must see, even if you haven't been keeping up on your French. I recommend watching the video first then the BTSV and then maybe the video again.

Landscape Photography In the Studio

Landscape Photography In the Studio

Canadian-Hungarian artist Eszter Burghardt, based in Vancouver BC (represent!) has photographed some amazing landscapes from the comfort of her own studio. All it took was some edibles elements or wool, lighting, a keen understanding of DOF (depth of field), the talent of a sculptor and the inspiration she gained from her time and studies in Iceland. Ok, so that's a lot but you can draw from your own experiences and know-how to turn out some awesomely creative work too.

A Tumblr Site Aimed at Outing  Photo Thieves

It's sometimes hard for me to believe that people can be so unscrupulous as to blatantly take steal someone else's work and pan it off as their own. But sadly it happens far more often than we are aware of. Which is why someone has created a Tumblr site dedicated to outing offenders in our industry. So, if you catch wind of a "photographer" or service that is clearly ripping off your fellow shooters you should consider submitting the intel to Photo Stealers Submit Form.

Not Your Typical MUA (Illusionary Makeup)

A Japanese university student who goes by Chooo-san creates some amazing realistic effects with nothing more than acrylic paints and talent. She does everything by hand with no digital editing at all.

Seeing her work has definitely fired a few synapsis in my brain and has me mulling over some fun shoot concepts. If you can get your hands on an MUA (make up artist) with this kind of talent your imagination is the only limit.

Creative Projector Portraits

Creative Projector Portraits

I love projectors. I've been trying to come up with a cool photo project using a projector for years now just so I had an excuse for my wife to buy one. Alas inspiration has yet to strike, a problem John Clang doesn't seem to have as can be seen in his series, "Blind Spot". Check out these portraits John took by projecting the subject's portrait back onto their own face. Well done John truly an inspiring idea if not a tad creepy.
