ISS Cinemagraphs So Beautiful It’s Hard to Believe They’re Real

A couple of weeks ago I mentioned an app called Flixel. It creates cinemagraphs and they were promoting it with Facebook and Fstoppers. (You could turn your FB profile picture into a cool cinemagraph for free. Check out that blog post HERE.) Cinematographer/Photographer Armand Dijcks did something very creative with some ISS images.

ISS (The International Space Station) floats around our earth capturing thousands of images for us to enjoy. Armand took some of those images and created truly incredible cinemagraphs.

Click HERE to check out the article where he explains the process for creating them. He also says he’s likely to add to the series in the future so be sure to follow him HERE.

Technical Use of ‘Painting With Light’ for Product Photography

‘Painting with Light’ is an advanced photography lighting technique that can produce truly impressive results. I think a lot of photographers might view ‘painting with light’ as a sort of novelty. Something somebody does to just play around and create “cool images”. I think this video might put that notion to rest.

Canadian photographer (I’m assuming a professional and commercial photographer based on his gear) Adrien Veczan uploaded this video to his Vimeo account giving us a behind-the-scenes look at his work on a bottle of Bear Hug vodka. He explains how and why he does what he does and shows how this technique might be the perfect option for product photography. He’s very precise and the image comes out perfect.

If you’re interested in learning how to ‘paint with light’ and many other advanced techniques I HIGHLY recommend my Advanced Photography Techniques Crash Course Training Tutorial. Check out HERE!
