Rolling Shutter -> Photo Effect Oddity

I thought the above in-flight turbo prop pictures taken by Jason Mullins with his iPhone 4 were pretty amazing, and at first I had thought maybe they were an odd Photoshop experiment of some kind. As it turns out, it’s a photographic phenomenon/effect called ‘rolling shutter’ that occurs when an image is scanned either from top […]

Illustration -> Eibatova Karina

At first when I went to check out Moscow, Russia Eibatova Karina’s Behance portfolio I thought it was not loading properly, then I quickly discovered that once you scroll down you’ll begin to find a whole world of interesting earthy illustration and paintings. It’s been a rough Monday for me, what can I say? The […]

Augmented City 3D -> Keiichi Matsuda

Augmented City 3D from Keiichi Matsuda on Vimeo.
This is an entertaining and well visualized concept by Keiichi Matsuda. Lot’s of little sci-fi AR details, some interesting ideas around the ability to enhance one’s environment, some fun UI… all dipped in an old school vat of 3D… Where did I put those glasses? Worth a view.

Life Photography -> Jeffrey David Luker

Photos like the above can only be captured by someone who passionately lives behind the camera, always taking it with them, every day, every night… and of course, it doesn’t hurt to be packing an abundance of talent along as well. Portland, Oregon based photographer Jeffrey David Luker has an outstanding collection of life photos […]

Crystal -> Evelyn Siegmund

I don’t know a lot about Dresden, Germany based art student Evelyn Siegmund or her work, but I discovered this lone piece on her Behance page this afternoon and thought it was really nice. I’ll have to keep an eye out for updates…

Flickr Set: Hong Kong and Macau in the 1950s -> Phil Roeder

I’m finding a ton of amazing things on Flickr lately. The above shots are vintage photos taken by Des Moines based Photographer Phil Roeder’s father (possibly with a Zeiss Ikon Contessa from what I’ve gathered from his Flickr page) while travelling Hong Kong and Macau in the 1950s. Wonderful retro coloring and contrast along with the fact […]

Flickr Photo Stream -> kevin Saint Grey

These shots by Kevin Saint Grey are beautifully captured and pretty much mind blowing. Taken with a Canon 40D by using some pretty interesting panning techniques that I don’t fully understand, his images become surreal and abstract works of art. I love these examples for their clean lines and bold color, he’s got some other […]

Rbnks.com -> Motion Graphics

Motion graphics designer and design blogger (@www.ilovenewwork.com) Ruben Kos has started up his own design company, specializing in motion graphics and animation. His reel is a constant flow of nice graphic particle animation, realistically rendered objects/lighting and some solid type/logo lock up arrangements. Makes for an inspiring view.

Camera Phone Lenses -> Fisheye, Macro, and Wide Angle

Like a kid in a camera store, I’m pretty excited about this discovery made and passed along by a friend of mine last week (Thanks Aaron!). These little lenses magnetically hold in place on any camera phone and judging from the shots on http://photojojo.com/ they really work! There are three lenses available -> Fisheye, Macro, and […]

Cole Rise 'Antimethod' -> Flickr Photo Stream

The photography by California based Cole Rise (flickr name: Antimethod) is inspiring, to say the least. Shot primarily with a Canon EOS 5D Mark II his sensibility to light, texture and landscape is impeccable, taking everyday scenery, applying his technique and artistry and making it something so much more epic. Be sure to check out […]

Bat For Lashes -> Treat Studios

Bat For Lashes visuals from Treat on Vimeo.
From the Vimeo page:
“Robin and Julia directed these visuals for Natasha Khan early 2010. This is a short edit of around 20 mins of footage produced. They were projected behind her singing with a string quartet, it was ace.”
More great work to be seen on ‘Treat Studios’ portfolio […]

'We Are All Workers' -> Rolling Film Roadshow

I took notice of these nice poster designs on the Levi’s Facebook page. Nice type design, retro illustration style and a strong color palette bring them all together and make for a great collectible set. More info via the link below.
From the Facebook page:
“We Are All Workers” Rolling Roadshow is a nationwide tour of free outdoor […]

A Cloud for Climbing -> Icarus: Returning

I’m really feeling the above graphic composite created for a Flagstaff, Arizona based musician called ‘A Cloud for Climbing’. From the amazing music sample that I’ve heard, the image compliments their sound really well, part digi-tech, part natural acoustic and an array of beats and dub sounds. I’m intrigued already, and plan to check out […]

Vintage Films 'San Francisco 1958' -> Jeff Altman

San Francisco 1958 from Jeff Altman on Vimeo.
Jeff Altman is a Chicago based post production artist. Apparently, he’s also interested in vintage film and home style documentary. On his Vimeo page you’ll find a small but beautiful collection of vintage films shot by his grandfather that he has digitized. These films make a great vintage […]

Photography Update -> Shooting the Canon EOS 7D

I’m happy to report that I received my long awaited Canon EOS 7D in the mail from B&H Camera last Thursday and I’ve been tinkering with it ever since, despite a head cold and some pretty drippy and unusually cold weather (for August). Right out of the box I knew I had made the right […]
