    1929 Silent Film of Soviet Cities

    "Man with a Movie Camera" is an experimental, silent documentary film. It's experimental in that its director, Dziga Vertov, uses almost all the cinematic techniques in the book, ranging from double exposure to footage played backwards! It's a documentary as it shows urban life in various Soviet cities, and contains no actors! What a historical gem!

    Hail Mary, Her Photographs are Full of Grace

    She is young & talented and talented & young. Her photographs would undeniably justify these reversible descriptions. Seeing her stream of film photos entrances you into a dreamlike fantasy: inspiring, magical, vivid, and sometimes haunting in a lovely kind of way. And just like a wonderful dream, you'll want to go back to sleep again and again so you can dream more and, maybe, assimilate right into the beauty of her color negative stills itself. Mary Robinson, you make our eyes swoon.

    To interpret paintings of people, viewers often focus on the facial expressions to look for emotions, clues, and possible stories. Interestingly, a Japanese collage artist and illustrator centered his art not on the human emotions, but on his aesthetic sense alone to create a series of portraits which he calls "Broken Faces."

Her barking would give us the alarm. Well, we can´t see the hedgehog very cleary in this photo but it´s the little blur in first plan with some pines. Maya and The Hedgehog!

    This double exposure tip is commonly used. It's very easy and the effects are always amazing. But I wish to include a small detail - allowing a few seconds to elapse before taking the second shot to allow it to be slightly different from the first shot.

  • Do androids dream of InfraRed sheep?

    shared by lazybuddha on 2011-09-27

    As I spent more time with her, my love for her grew, matched only by her apathy for me. But I didn't care, she was special and she made me feel special. She was popular in a way I could never have imagined. Just walking on grass felt like being on the red carpet and people came to my home day and night. I flattered myself it was me that drew them but I knew deep down they only sought a glimpse of her. She imbued even the most mundane with a surreal beauty and I envied her...envied her and loved her.

    I felt like I knew her now, at least as well as one could. She was sensitive yet easy to be with, not the fickle, high maintenance girl I'd imagined. She always forgave my clumsiness. I understood that she had others, she gave her love so freely, so innocently, that I couldn't be jealous. I was happy to visit them and try and catch a glimpse of her. After all I knew, somewhere in the back of my mind, that she was as transient as life itself, and when she was gone, she would be gone forever.
