Audio Shapes The Meaning of the Visuals

This afternoon, I came across this interesting example of how audio can affect the way we perceive visual images. These two trailers for the Resonance film have an identical visual track, but the audio between the two segments is radically different. As a result the emotion of, and my reaction to the two trailers differs […]

Gains In Intelligent Software

Almost two years ago I wrote a post imagining a future where intelligent asset management software would remove most of the labor involved in managing large image collections. Fortunately, we’re starting to see gains in image recognition software which promise to make solving these difficult tasks easier and less time consuming. I recently learned of […]

Friday Round Up: Friday Round-Up: The Perilis of Social Searc, Bin-laden on Twitter & True Multimedia Magazines on iPad.

This was an interesting week. Editing the video and audio tracks from Strictly Business 3 provided a great deal of food for thought. The presentations are outstanding and it was a joy to relive the presentations again. So it was from that mind-expanded perspective that I gathered these little signals from the Web. I’ll point […]

Really Useful Premiere Pro Tip

I picked up this Premiere Pro editing tip from veteran editor Tim Kolb on the Creative Cow forums and thought I would share it with you. When editing audio in Adobe Premiere Pro, switching your sequence’s units from frames to audio units allows you to make more precise audio edits on the timeline to remove […]

Friday Round-up: The $2.99 Follow Focus, Revolutionary Data Visualization and Mr. Beam Takes On the World

The $2.99 Follow Focus. I came across this little tidbit last night, a jar opener turned follow focus and am game to give it a try. Thus weekend I’ll be making a trip to Bed Bath and Beyond (probably the only the you’ll hear that on my blog) and pick up one to test. I’ll […]

New Work: ASMP Find A Photographer

Earlier this month, we helped ASMP create a Web commercial to highlight their Find A Photographer service to art buyers. Find A Photographer is a unique database of ASMP member photographers that can be searched by geographic region or photographic speciality. In short, it allows an art buyer to find a photographer for their next […]

Friday Round-up: QR Codes, AR and New-parent productivity

Yes, I know this blog hasn’t gotten a lot of love lately. Having a 4 month old while still juggling a business is a tricky proposition. As a result, blog posts have essentially fallen by the wayside. So, inspired by the Communicatrix, I’m going to try and at least publish a Friday Roundup to close […]

Friday Round-up 2-4-11: ASMP SB3, Squeeze 7, Mobile Video

I’m still on a high from ASMP’s Strictly Business conference two-weeks ago in Los Angeles. If you are a professional photographer, or want to be one, you owe it to yourself to attend SB3. You only have two more chances, Philadelphia Feb 25-27 and Chicago April 1-3. I hope to see you there! While we’re […]

SB3: Up Your Game

It’s been a week and a half since the Strictly Business 3 conference in LA and I’m still abuzz with ideas from the conference. If you haven’t been to SB3, I highly encourage you to do so. It’s a rare chance to network with your peers, become inspired by a host of outstanding presenters and […]

The Truth About the Future of The Media Industry

I came across this article yesterday comparing the market value of “new media” companies like Google, Facebook etc. to the “Old Media” empires of Disney, Comcast and News Corp. In this comparison, the value of new media companies and old media companies are roughly equal. While I don’t necessarily agree that market capitalization is the best […]
