Bloggy Goodness

What is Guess The Lighting, you ask? In the blogger’s words: “Armed with only a wacom tablet, less-than-mediocre drawing skills and an acute sense of smell, professional photographer Ted Sabarese guesses how individual images were lit by other photographers and then sketches corresponding lighting diagrams. It’s what you always wanted to know but didn’t know who to ask.” In our words: A bit of awesome. Go check it out.

Video Virtuosity

Alex Prager is a force to be reckoned with in the fine art photography world. With her cinematic-style photography she breaks down barriers between still photography and film. If you haven’t heard of her before get to know her now. Her recent New York Times feature, A Touch of Evil, has created quite a sensation – and with good reason. Check out her “video gallery of cinematic villainy, inspired by nefarious icons and featuring the best performers from the year in film.”
