I found this interesting behind the scene video of this Evolution of Game video. It’s a hard work for the team, as they challenged themselves on making the shot manually (the change of prop and setting), and all of these at one take! Good job!
I have seen many tutorials on photoshop, or image retouching on the Internet over the years. I dare to say, there isn’t any which I would bookmark their site, and revisit their tutorial sets over, and over again.
That has now changed. I first came upon Sean Armenta‘s video on one of FStoppers‘ blog entries. He was featured as one of the guest to give away valuable tips on how to improve on improving your beauty shot. Now, it seems like Sean has joined Fstoppers’ team as a regular contributor on the website. That means, we will get to see his tutorial on a regular basis.
The reason why I like Sean’s tutorial is that, the video is always clear, and straight forward. He has since introduced some of the ‘alternate’ ways of achieving the effects on image retouching. Besides that, his narration throughout the video is pretty good. He’s definitely not monotonous, to me, he knows what he talks about.
I guess the fact that he’s a photographer himself, helps the course, as he could connect to photographer much better.
Anyways, here is one of his recent tutorial. It’s on post processing — how and when you could use healing brush and patch tool.
Here are a couple more shots from the day, and a video edit of their earlier years’ photos, as well as highlight of their ROM day on the 9th Sept ’09. I’ve uploaded the same video to both Facebook and Vimeo, but I’m choosing to post the one from Youtube. I think it takes lesser time to buffer the video from Youtube, compared to others. Vimeo was the slowest among the three hosts.
I just got back from Pre-Opening Movie Screening by MBO Cinama, at the Spring Shopping Mall.
The movie shown was Gamer, starring Gerard Butler. It was quite a violent movie, not a movie for everyone. I’ve come up with a short clip to show how the place is like Pardon my video quality, as it was recorded with E51′s 2 megapixel phone camera. Please also excuse the camera shake.
Overall, I’m pretty satisfied with the quality in the hall. Not too bad. Do expect me to show up regularly here in MBO, and do not expect me to turn up in the you-know-where-cineplex anymore.
