[Pics/Video] How to Make Your Own Models

[Pics/Video] How to Make Your Own Models There is definitely are no shortages of models to shoot out there but if you feel there is or you can’t get them to risk their lives for your art then maybe it’s time you made your own. It may not be what American street installation artist Mark Jenkins had in mind but hey, it’s a cool idea none the less. Mark’s work is actually aimed at making people take notice of their surrounding environment and fellow man/woman rather than their smartphones. He creates life-like sculptures from packaging tape and even clothes some to “to camouflage the art as reality”. See pics of Mark’s...

[News] New Photo Tech Removes Unwanted People, In Camera

[News] New Photo Tech Removes Unwanted People, In Camera It’s hard to get Lee (see 5:44) to be anything less than southern gentlemanly but I don’t have enough fingers and toes to count the amount of times I’ve heard him curse under his breath as some New Yorker casually stolled infront of his lens. So Lee, this one is for you. Scalado has created an aptly named, photo-taking system that allows you to selectively remove people in a photo by isolating those pesky, inconsiderate, moving objects from that of the static background, with a touch. What am I talking about? You can see what I mean in the video below. “Remove” will be available...

How to Recover Hot Spots

How to Recover Hot Spots First, let’s start with a definition. Hot spots occur when your image is overexposed, and parts of the image that contain vital information have been blown to white. You can prevent this by turning on your highlight warning in camera (sometimes known as the “blinkies”). Please refer to the user manual on your camera to see how to do this. The highlight warning will blink where it is white and there is no pixel information. If this happens to you, there is no way to bring that information back. In some extreme cases, there is no way to fix it. But every now and then, then sun glares on...

“The EYE” (Create Simple Effects)

“The EYE” (Create Simple Effects) I love to watch movies. I have found that film and paintings can be a really good inspiration to stretch your “Photographic Muscle!” I am of course talking about your “EYE” that all important creative tool that can’t be learned.  I can answer every question on how I do things and still can’t give you that creative edge.  You can learn how to fake it, but to be truly great; it should come from inside you. So when I get into a slump I look to movies for a little challenge.  I had been watching one of my favorite movies and I was struck with a little inspiration.  2001: A Space...

[Pics] Abandoning (and then shooting) Little People on the Streets I know I know, this post is a bit of a throw back but not everyone surfs the web as much as you do and I don’t want anyone to miss anything good.

So check out more than 50 pics in the post below. –Slinkachu-“My ‘Little People Project’ started in 2006. It involves the remodelling and painting of miniature model train set characters, which I then place and leave on the street. It is both a...
