Letters del Fuego; Catch Me If You Can

  • French kids play with matches in Typographie-Bougies, creating letterforms from numerous candles. YouTube also offers a little behind the scenes clip for this film. (It’s kind of funny that even 90-second movies now get their own “making-of” featurettes.)
  • Most of the rest of the YouTube type section is, like most of YouTube, crap, but stumbling upon some great Saul Bass pieces (Psycho, Anatomy of a Murder, and The Man with the Golden Arm) made me think of a modern sequence that evolves that aesthetic masterfully: Catch Me If You Can.

  • Presenting the Photoshop CS2 “Fauxtography” Edition

    Sometimes I feel that Adobe is a bit like the guys who make radar guns and radar detectors–with one hand working on tools for detecting image manipulation, and with the other enabling ever more seamless manipulation. Cartoonist JD Frazer finds humor in the latter with the “Photoshop Tool Palette for ‘Creative’ Freelancers.” (As it happens, a while back at least one large newsroom used ResEdit to hack tools out of Photoshop–not, of course, that there’s a technical cure for human/ethical problems.)

    Lightroom Podcast #17: Richard Morgenstein

    During the Iceland adventure George Jardine sat down with photographer Richard Morgenstein to talk about the experience. Because this is an enhanced podcast, you can view images in iTunes as the talk progresses (here’s a screenshot)–very cool. George writes,

    Richard talks about the weather in Iceland, the roads, and the “space” he’s found here in Iceland. He walks us through everything from the big views to the small views, and gives us a glimpse into how he found exciting compositional material everywhere in the objects and landscapes of Iceland.
    Richard also discusses how the landscape interacts with the weather, and what he was able to capture using various lighting, focus and B&W techniques.
    This “enhanced” podcast includes photos taken by Richard in Iceland, and they can be viewed on Photo and Video iPods. Only the audio track will be heard on other devices. I apologize for the minor audio difficulties near the end of this interview.

    The podcast is available as an MP3 file via George’s iDisk (under “0803-2 Podcast”). It’s also available via the Lightroom podcasts RSS feed, and by searching for “Lightroom” in iTunes.
