I’ve been playing with my new DSLR this month (thank you Santa), and have been thinking about some of the cool photographic effects used in campaigns over the last couple of years.
Getting the LED out in London
What do you get if you take a camera with a long exposure, some LED lights, some London scenery and some Kraftwerk-esque music?
This: Lichtfaktor for Sky Movies. A bunch of guys hacking about with lights, cameras and action. Throw in some Star Trek and Star Wars noises and this is a great example of where creativity meets technology. Waste some time this afternoon with a browse through the Lichtfaktor Vimeo Channel.
Making the world mini
And there aren’t many better at it than Keith Loutit, taking an idea and running and running and running with it. Singapore, USA, Brazil, Italy, China and his native Australia all get the treatment in his Small Worlds Project. You can see how agencies use tilt-shifting techniques on his commercial page.
DSLR vs Barbie?
The affordable DSLR has made taking thousands of photos accessible to the masses, but carrying around the full kit isn’t always practical. What’s that lump in your pocket (don’t be rude)? Your smartphone.
These little bits of kit have been moving on in leaps and bounds over the last few years. Remember the Nokia 7650? The first Nokia with a cameraphone released in 2002. Now? Nokia announce a 41Mega Pixel cameraphone at MWC 2012.
But how does an iPhone 4S stack up against a DSLR for photos? These guys think it stacks up pretty well.
And how well does the iPhone 4S stack up against a Canon D7 for video? “Amazing for what it is” according to the folks at Take Zer0.
