A couple years ago, a popular stock photography vendor claimed copyright infringement on an image we used in one of our ebooks. Embarrassed, I quickly investigated.

EYEDISH | Spicy Entertainer Topographical Light Paintings Created by Tracing Entire Rooms with One LED Helsinki, Finland-based photographer Janne Parviainen has been light painting since 2008, and recently created series of experimental photos showing a technique he calls Light Topography. Using a single LED light for each image, he carefully traces over every surface in the scene while the camera’s shutter is open. Fully tracing a room can take as long as half an hour. All the photographs in this series were done entirely in-camera, with no special CGI or trickery applied afterward.

Best free video editing software: 9 top programs you should download Introduction It's the first law of movie-making: no matter how expensive your camera, or how skilled you are at using it, your raw footage will always be rubbish. And so, if you're looking to add a little professional polish, then installing a video editor will be essential. Commercial video editors can be very expensive, of course, but you may not have to go that far. Also, if you're wondering what sort of PC you'll need to buy (or build) in order to easily crunch through heavier duty video editing tasks (or indeed image editing), then we've got you covered. Garbage In, Garbage out, the saying goes, so if you want better raw footage, you should probably get a proper, decent camcorder. Here are the 20 applications we shortlisted in no particular order of preference. Also why not check out.... This article is updated regularly. Be aware that some developers choose to package their free applications with third party software (Google Chrome for example) in order to monetise their downloads.

10 Renowned Directors Offer Their Advice on Filmmaking As artists, we know that to some extent all our creative ventures are based on what has come before. Although, much like the biological evolution, the utilization of creativity recombines and mutates what has been established, ultimately resulting in work that is uniquely yours. The same can be said about the wisdom of veteran filmmakers. I want to start off with an interview with Fritz Lang, director of Metropolis; a film from one of my favorite eras of cinema history: German Expressionism. Kevin Smith on storytelling and walking the fine line between being reasonable and unreasonable (contains some NSFW language). David Lynch addresses multiple aspects of filmmaking (even that bane of every sound person’s existence: airplanes). Sidney Lumet briefly talks about working in film and why he prefers working with prime lenses . Martin Scorsese talks about his experience in film school, his influences, and 21st century filmmaking. What do you think of the advice from these directors? Links:
