Inspirational Photography Links #4

I’ve been crazy busy lately, but I always seem to find some time to waste on the good old internet.  Here are a few interesting links that I’ve recently come across.

The first one I’m dieing to use.  Its a page explaining how to get interesting shapes in the bokeh of your pictures.  For those that don’t know, “bokeh” is actually a Japanese word that means “the out of focus area” in a picture (See the first sentence of the tutorial).  Remember my tutorial on taking portraits?  You could use the method explained on this page to make small lights in the background appear to be shapes that you choose.  I’m really interested in trying this, and other techniques with some models so if anyone is interested, please contact me.

Next is a project done by German photographer Simon Hogsberg.  He made a 100 meter long picture by putting hundreds of pictures together in Photoshop.  It’s called We’re All Gonna Die!  Cool.

Third is an interesting use of Photoshop.  It seems a Russian photographer found the exact spots where old photographs from 1941 were taken, and took new pictures.  He then stitched them together in Photoshop to make some interesting studies on the past.  Number two and six are my favorites.

Thanks for reading.

    Images took by Russian photographer are really something. I too like no. 2 and 6. They stood out among others. Some of them are freakish like no. 8 :) Thanks for sharing these awesome links Neil.

  2. Very interesting links, had some interesting expirience with bokeh too. A flickr contact of mine is very much into it and played around with the shapes.

    Here two of my attempts, one with a portrait and one with a simple photo of a rope:
    One Moment In Time - IMG_6975-2

    Let me know what you think. :)
