Building The Animatronic Dinosaurs For Jurassic Park

Building The Animatronic Dinosaurs For Jurassic Park

Jurassic Park is my favorite movie of all time. The story line itself is captivating but the incredible special effects are what really set this film apart. The movie was released 20 years ago in 1993 and the CGI and robotic dinosaurs still look more realistic than the majority of special effects in movies today. Stan Winston has just released 3, never before seen videos of the creation of the robotic dinosaurs from the original Jurassic Park.

Sample Footage From The Black Magic Cinema Camera NSFW

A few days ago my buddy Bryan Bowden called me and said that he was in possession of the currently unreleased Black Magic Cinema Camera. This camera could be the next big thing in videography because it's incredibly cheap ($3000) for what you get (2.5K RAW footage).

Turn Pegboard Into A Fashion Photography Backdrop

Turn Pegboard Into A Fashion Photography Backdrop

Good photography isn't all about having a big budget and I am always a fan of photographers who can prove it.

Nick took some cheap pegboard and lit it from behind creating a hundreds of little beads of light behind his subject. By using a wide aperture he could blur each of these bursts of light to create some pretty compelling images.
