Photographer Nadav Kander talks about his portraiture in this 13 minute film.
One of my favourite pieces of non-fiction film: an eight and a half minute sequence filmed by Claude Lelouch on the streets of Paris in 1976.
Pro photographer Zack Arias is thrown down the challenge of taking street portraits using nothing but a point-and-shoot camera and an optically-triggered second flash gun. Zack’s ebullient approach and the results we see towards the end of the film show that photography isn’t about using really expensive equipment.
I’ve seen many miniaturized time-lapse films over the past couple of years, but this is far and away my favourite thus far. By Keith Loutit (of course) and Jarbas Agnelli. Make sure you watch it all the way to the end.
You may recall that I wrote about HDR technique some time ago, and a technique I employed at a wedding last weekend reminded me to write about the alternative: Tone Mapping and Zone System exposure.
The second of two photographic portraiture and lighting days this summer will take place at the Rolex Learning Centre on the grounds of the EPFL in Lausanne on Sunday 19th August.
First there was print, then recordings, then cinema, radio, TV, and the internet. Mobile is the seventh and latest form of mass media. And the smartphone is the fastest spreading technology in history. More iPhones are activated every day than babies are born.

A timelapse sequence taken around close of service at the ferry port on the south coast of England, the night before we left for the continent and home.
Our workshop day this past Sunday was a great success, after the rain passed away from the MFO Park in Oerlikon some ten minutes before we started! Blazing sunshine soon warmed the area and gave us plenty of light to work with, so the day was spent mainly working with a mixture of natural sunlight and flash illumination to fill…
The Fire Festival in Signau, a small area in the Emmental valley, is a Swiss folk and artistic festival; a smaller equivalent of Burning Man in the U.S. My friend and independent filmmaker Yannick de Zordo – who plays bass guitar for Choo Choo and who produced the great video for their song “…
Lovely to return from our holiday to find that the rose plant which I bought in spring has been lapping up the combination of rain and heat whilst we were away, to present us with 6 blooms on our arrival home.
The slightly disappointing centre of the historic city of Arras, with its two main squares filled with traffic and cars.
An eight and a half minute film of the journey up to the Piz Gloria restaurant on the Schilthorn.
A great coincidence, after yesterday’s post, that US web developer Jason Santa Maria has linked to a list of tips by Pixar story artist Emma Coats, who has tweeted a series of “story basics” recently: guidelines that she learned from her more senior colleagues on how to create appealing stories. The tips are just as useful…
One of the greatest problems that I face on a daily basis is that of a lack of focus. I love to do so many things – taking and editing photos, creating designs for websites and books, programming – that when I’m fired up, it’s difficult to know where to start and where – or even when – to stop.
