I don’t consume a lot of photography training, or at least I didn’t until I had the opportunity to watch this Headshot tutorial DVD. I had always assumed photography was a completely different world with little crossover. And I think a lot of us foolishly believe that filmmaking/video is a superior medium that evolved from photography. Especially with all the hubbub of the DSLR video movement.
Patrick from FStoppers.com contacted me and asked me if I would be interested in checking out their recent DVD release “Peter Hurley: The Art Behind The Headshot” I snap off a few stills on a lot of my projects so if anything I thought I might walk away a better stills shooter.
But upon watching this extensive 4 hour DVD, I realized how valuable this course is. Even to video folk like us. Here are 5 reasons you should check it out too:
This weeks Monday Like pick is this great little piece by Amsterdam World Wide. Its been out for a while, but I missed getting it on the site. Every time I see this video, I get an itch to get out of the studio and go make something. I hope you enjoy.
The HDSLR Mobile Hybrid Rig is a response to the HDSLR revolution combining stills and video in production. This rig was conceived for the shooter who desires a quick and mobile solution for both DSLR video and stills. The idea was a rig that would offer stabilization for video while still offering a small form factor for photography.
