Trendwatching with “A-list” and “B-list” sources

In the Agile Photographer presentation, I recommend developing two RSS feeds or bookmark folders to help you glean the most valuable information from the sea of blog posts, news sources and Twitter updates on the Web. I call these your “A-list” and “B-list” sources. The A-list sources are the most thought-provoking sources of content. Those […]

Agile Photographer: Kansas City

Late last week, I kicked off the fall tour of the ASMP seminar Agile Photographer: A Multimedia Partner for Business series. In the  seminar, I encourage photographers to think outside the traditional publishing channels to discover, and generate, new opportunities for building a business creating compelling imagery. Judging by their questions and comments, the attendees in Kansas […]

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 […]

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.

Thievery Corporation, Vampire Weekend and Global Photography

There is a long history of regional music styles influencing one another as musicians adopt, assimilate or incorporate distinctive rhythms, instruments or musical phrases into their own music—a sonic melting pot, if you will.

In a recent TED talk, David Byrne discusses the ways that architecture-the nature of the rooms music is performed in-shapes the content of the music. Most traditional european choir music is influenced by the reverberations of the music echoing through the hard walls of a cathedral which shape and enhance the long notes of the […]

There have been many, really interesting new applications of photography coming out from research labs in recent months. From Augmented Reality eyeglasses, to body-morphing video software, what we can do creatively with images, and the utility we derive from the information within images is increasing. Here’s another novel way of using a camera to serve […]

30 Days of CS5: Indesign Interactivity

The past several months have been a wild ride for anyone looking to create and distribute interactive Web sites, digital video and multimedia accessible via desktop Web browsers and mobile devices. Apple’s reluctance to allow Flash onto the iPhone and iPad, and the resulting brouhaha between the two companies, has taken some of the steam […]

30 Days of CS5: Adobe Media Encoder

It’s great to have seemingly unfettered control of your digital video, but this freedom is all for naught if you’re not able to deliver your video to the people who want to view it. For many, video encoding is a black art, complete with esoteric terminology, a range of buttons, dials and pulldown menus that […]
