Calle Hoglund: A Photographer Being Creative

The biggest problem with photographers today is that we don't actually get out and shoot enough. It's so easy to watch videos of others being creative or wait until we have that next magical piece of gear before we plan a shoot. What happened to taking pictures and being creative because that is what we love to do? Calle Hoglund did just that. He had an idea one night while his buddies were over and he shot it that night. Luckily for us, he also filmed his progress, enjoy.

Great video love it

Awesome idea and BTS video but that music only reminds me of South Park and America's Funniest Home Videos

Great video....maybe a lil more photoshop work so the green flannel shirt could be seen thru the picture frames. For instance the bald guy on the right would take like 2 mins to cut out the black to reveal the shirt. Great idea otherwise!

Wow! Thanks for all the comments guys!

@BLK PXLS I didn't even consider doing what you are suggesting mainly because I wanted my frames to look "authentic", never seen a framed picture of people being able to see-through the empty space behind them =). But I understand what you mean, just wanted to share my thoughts and that it wasn't what I went for here. Thanks for taken the time to comment it.

Cheers!
Calle

Looks great. I love that you just got together with your friends and did a project for fun, a lot of us don't get out there and do it too often anymore.
