I feel like everyone gets burned out on photography, or anything that they do for that matter, after a certain period of time and you just need something to pick you back up, this very cute video might just do that.
When I first saw the link to this interactive short “Darkroom”, I was expecting some sort of YouTube style Choose-Your-Own-Adventure, where I’d have to click on links to new videos. Much to my surprise though, it was nothing of the sort. In this unique video by Vimeo User FIAP, you will want to grab your DSLR and set it to manual to properly experience this. [more]

Everyday people get caught up in their work, are worried about the latest new camera, or become stressed over minor inconveniences. I know I’m guilty of all of these. After watching this video, I felt myself more relaxed and started remembering the importance of slowing down in life. You can miss out on so much by being too wrapped up in work and not taking time to appreciate the people you love and the simple things you get to share with them. This video from MDfilms is a breath of fresh air amidst a tumultuous day. [more]
Chances are, if you are viewing this on our website, you are a still photographer and not a professional title designer. Although there are many genres of art, in a way they are all the same thing. The goal of any artist is to make an impact and create an emotion with their work. If you have ever admired the title sequence before a movie, this video is for you.

I’m kind of obsessed with stop motion, and have dabbled in it from time to time. But this particular stop motion video is top notch. Watch as a pair of hands (belonging to an artist named Hagen Reiling) draw the story of Ernest Hemingway’s The Old Man and The Sea. The camera work and edit were done by Marcel Schindler. He shot with a [more]
Recently on PBS’ Idea Channel they pose the question, “Is Instagram the Best Thing to Ever Happen to Photography?”

Digital cinema powerhouse, Brain Farm, released its new 2012 reel a few days ago online. As a photographer and someone who isn’t heavily involved in video production, it’s hard for me to get excited about video reels. But Brain Farm left me wanting more and more of their footage. I was in awe as I watched this reel. Kudos to the whole BF team, and I look forward to seeing you guys take over the world someday. Enjoy!
Videographer/Photographer/Artist Shawn Reeder spent two years in Yosemite creating the footage that would be cut to make this video. Shot mostly under moonlight and with a variety of dollies and cranes, the end result is a masterclass in the art of the outdoor timelapse. It’s not often that we get to see such an intimate portrait of a location shot over such a long time period. Be sure to view fullscreen, with HD enabled.
“The Camera” is a haunting short film by Peter Lewis about a girl who finds an old polaroid camera that produces some unique and unexpected results. Using modest equipment: Canon Rebel T2i, Canon 50mm f/1.4, Tamron 28-200mm f/3.8-5.6 and a $50 budget, Peter knocked this film out while on vacation in Nags Head, North Carolina. Even more impressive is that this is Peter’s first film and he produced the entire thing himself including, filming, sound, the musical score and post production. Well done! [more]
