Christina Perri Arms Behind The Scenes

Sat July 23, 2011


From lovemspenny

Filming a video involves a lot of planning, practice, rehearsal, takes and retakes. [That is why you should never ever believe any of the reality shows you watch. It's all scripted, it's all planned down to the last scene.]

In this video we get a behind the scenes glimpse of all the hard work that goes into making a video production, in this case of the beautiful song, Arms, written and sung by Christina Perri.

Portfolio Options For Photographers @ Luminous Landscape

Fri July 22, 2011

Portfolios for Photographers by Andy Biggs from Andy Biggs on Vimeo.

Andy Biggs discusses the different portfolios products out on the market, from off-the-shelf items to custom made portfolio boxes, that photographers can use to show their best work.

I believe printed portfolios (like prints) are steadically on the way out. You can display any texture electronically now (though you cannot feel it, but then so what?). What do you think? Should photographers bother to create a printed portfolio of their work today?
