It's a testament to how un-original we all are .
But fun to watch nonetheless. At least once.

It's a revelation that rings true : many "best shots ever" must actually be lucky shots.
But that does not diminish the merit of the photographer : aiming and shooting blind is an art in itself (it requires intimate knowledge of camera and lens) and most of all: the photographer still had to be there and have the wit to make such a maneuver to get an interesting shot while staying with his head in the trench and camera to the eye would have resulted in an interesting photo of a wall of dirt.

At some points during the video, I think I see the silhouette of an obscured man behind the skeleton: could be the person who does the light painting with the small (probably bright LED) light.
But when the skateboarding skeleton is on his way from A to B and suspended in mid air in the frames that constitute that movement, I am still puzzled how the man behind can be there long enough to do the painting (must be at least several seconds).
Curious.
I once tried it (much simpler) in a single shot and that was fun.

Nice to know a bit about this.
You can tell that Kubrick started out as a photographer (and actually a very good one too). Near the end the costume designer talks about his attention for the fabric of costumes, in order to recreate the light-reflection characteristics seen in period paintings.
Gotta love this if you are interested in available light.

RoelHendrickx: While visiting the SW I shot with my regular camera.
I recognize most of the places here.
However, I also used my Iphone to shoot, process and upload first sample images while on the road (think: "look, family, we are now here...").
Those images are numbers 26-65 in this gallery:

Thank you Stu

That guy seems to have almost the same expression on many occasions.
I had an instant flashback to a few years ago.

Good shot you got there (especially the angle)

On Connect post Instagram cracks down use of its brand name (12 comments in total)

I don't see how regulations issued today, can prohibit a certain custom or use that predeces it, unless those regulations are just a repetition of general law.
But in that case, Instagram should not include it now to try and crack down on use they seem to have tolerated and encouraged before.
Adding it to corporate regulations seems to be a message that "there is no more Mr. Nice Guy" (from now on), which is kind of an admission, that previously much more was tolerated.

In reply to:

jcmarfilph: none of the above..
Those silly ideas of attaching lens to a mediocre camera phone with sensor smaller than a pinhead are worthless.

Also, attaching a lens bigger than a phone itself defeats the purpose of mobility.

I'd rather see more travelzoom or bridge cam with WIFI or 4G capabilities than make my self look like a dork with a slippery brick in one hand and another hand holding the lens.

It's not often that I agree totally with an opinion on these comments.
But I do now. All of this (except for a real camera but with connectivity) looks just silly.
And there is no way that it will yield GOOD results.
"Interesting" (as in "weird"): yes maybe. But GOOD, no.

I like his photography.
Good, simple concepts and well executed.
No overdone PP but just enough.

That first is mildly interesting, but the animation is necessary to make the image interesting...
That second just makes me dizzy. Help, I want to get off this ride!!

jm67: From the viewpoint of a wedding photographer...
Yes I know it doesn't quite fit all five but #s two and four do so frequently.

'It will mean great exposure for you.'
--No, it won't. I'm on the wrong side of the camera to be exposed.
'If you don't want to do it for free, I know other photographers who will.'
--Then why are you asking me?
'We could just find a stock photo if you're not interested.'
--I can recommend a few companies if you'd like to save time.
'My cousin has a DSLR and I think I can get him to do it if you don't want to.
(My personal favourite, the cousin, aunt, uncle and I get this alot),
--You'll cry when you see the results so I recommend hydrating first.
'If all goes well, it could lead to paid opportunities with our company.'
--I love betting on "maybes" and "ifs". Sign me up. I mean, pass.

For a wedding photographer, the last one would me:
"I'm sure to divorce at some point and then maybe I'll pay you to shoot my next wedding."

Ventil: My favorite, although not a quote asking images for free:

"Wow, great cameras, sure they have to take good pictures!"
-- "Yes, of course, we've taught them everything we know..."

People seldom talk to a painter like this:
"Wow, great brushes - they must make splendid paintings"

In reply to:

SemperAugustus: The new loaded word is "donation"... amounts to the same with the same arguments:
- Good exposure, good marketing
- Networking, etc.
My answer is "not interested", if you donate or work for free you are marketing yourself as cheap/no cost resource. Your work will be appreciated as such.

I do not agree, at least not totally.
See my later reply to the article itself.
I don't think using those conditions "cheapens" my work.
And I can tell it is highly appreciated.

I do the occasional pro bono job, but under my conditions:
* only for good causes that I support and know don't have the budget
* editorial and creative control
* no fees, but expenses reimbursed
* copyright remains with me: only a licence for a well specified use that is exclusively for the good cause (all commercial use excluded)
* guaranteed exposure (no images for internal use : they must be used for specified publicly distributed ends (book, brochure, exhibition, ...)

Approached like that, pro bono work can open doors and be a win-win.
