A good friend of mine, Bryan Allen, turned me on to Animoto. They have an amazing service turning digital images into something approaching an MTV video. Well, maybe that’s a little overstated but the founders came from MTV, and the service is for amateurs and professionals alike.
You can also view another example of this. Its a slideshow of the north shore of Lake Superior set to the music, titled, “EXPERIENCE Lake Superior” found on the right hand side of the screen.

We’re in a transition here. So, here’s what’s happening…knee deep in the middle of a full custom re-design of the blog and my commercial site. The new blog site will soft launch Jan 15 with a full launch Feb. 1. It will contain new images and new video content. Until then, I’ll be posting a mix of things, including today’s post, a critique of one of my own images and perhaps a few other goodies. So, please stay tuned.
On with today’s post, in which I INVITE YOU TO COMMENT on the post-production feel of this image. Many don’t like going too far in post production while others have made a career on it. Jill Greenburg the “Manipulator” is one example. So, I’ve been working on a look and today’s subject is my studio assistant, Sam Scherf. We were working on a different shoot in the studio (all of which you’ll see soon, with the blog relaunch), and I had him stand in for a few lighting adjustments.
I’ll be producing a video tutorial on the lighting set up in this shot. But, between the lighting, my post production, and the use of a Kubota Action “Bronze God #1″, what are your thoughts on this look? I’ll leave it at that.
