Reblogged from JOGGING.
Aaron Grimes has been working on a pretty sweet project lately.
From the description.
"I had the opportunity to travel to Tokyo in November and I wanted to capture the busy and hectic feel of the city. I’ve been working on an effect in Photoshop that simulates exposure times that are longer than possible while filming and this was the perfect showcase for the effect.
Using Photoshop, I simulated each frame to have essentially 1 second of exposure time, a significant jump from the 1/50th original shutter speed. This would be an impossibility to do “in camera”.”
Amazon Art just went live and blech. I just don’t think people are going to spend this kind of money online. Maybe once for the novelty, but how do you control quality, what about color matching from the site to the print? I understand that not all of the available works are going for the price of a Chuck Close print, but even the lesser priced pieces I would be wary about.
Also, aesthetically speaking, there is no tangible line of thought or program going. It’s actually unattractive to look at, not one thing makes me want to go through and actually look at the offerings. They announced they were going to do this earlier this year, if I remember correctly, and this is what they were able to put together? I know that Amazon isn’t the most glamorous place to shop for, well anything, but if you’re trying to go high end gallery-esque a little thought into the presentation would have made me feel a bit more valued as a consumer of presumably good taste.
Noah Jashinski …and some days feel like a Goddard film.
I couldn’t be more pleased to announce that as of right now I am selling this incredible photograph by Noah Jashinski on Hyde or Buy!
I met Noah when one of my favorite people (jerk) moved to NY and she had a going away party. I knew we would be fast friends and immediately got mad at said jerk for keeping him from me for so long. Besides being a Grade A solid human being and friend he’s an incredibly talented photographer and I knew I had to have him! Luckily for me he agreed.
