Lightroom Podcast #25: Mark Hamburg & Phil Clevenger

“We started from a supposition of content being king, and we wanted to move the interface out of the way of the content. And that was a real rallying point when we all found a model for the UI, where we could dedicate up to 95% of the screen to image content and have the UI politely get out of the way, or be invoked as needed.” So says Phil Clevenger,
user interface designer on Lightroom. George Jardine chatted recently with Phil & engineering manager Mark Hamburg:

Phil and Mark sit down with George to talk about Phil’s role on the team and the user interface that he’s designed for Lightroom. The conversation quickly begins to wander and turn (as these conversations frequently do take on a life of their own…) to some of the broader questions surrounding Lightroom, and ends up touching on the core story and original vision for the project. This podcast also includes a description by Mark of some of his original thinking behind Lightroom’s modular design.

The podcast is available as an MP3 file via George’s iDisk (under "1127 Podcast – Phil Clevenger and Mark Hamburg"). It’s also be available via the Lightroom podcasts RSS feed, and by searching for "Lightroom" in iTunes.

Photorealistic painting; Make your own "Cars"; more

  • Artist Cali Rezo creates some beautiful, photorealistic paintings in Photoshop, as well as more stylized pieces.  She shares some behind-the-scenes snapshots, as well as a step-by-step animation of a piece coming together. [Via]
  • I Met The Walrus is an Jerry Levitan’s story of how, as a 14-year-old in 1969, he snuck into John Lennon’s hotel room & recorded an interview.  The trailer (or is it the whole film?) features some great illustrated animation.  (More on the story is here.) [Via]
  • Make your car resemble those in "Cars" by following this tutorial.  Appropriately, a Pontiac Aztek gets a goofy, gap-toothed grin & actually looks better as a result. [Via]
  • Weirdly, I encountered the same topic on Autoblog just the next day.  They’ve posted some great examples, and now their collection of images is growing.

For more automotive rendering bits, see previous.
