For anyone who is beginning this daunting process, just getting going can be a big challenge considering how much advice there is to be found. Bearing that in mind, I wanted to provide some guidance on universal positive.”

surfrunclimb:

“This is James Pearson making the sketchy first ascent of the Arch of Bishekele in Chad’s Ennedi Desert. Besides the challenges of a remote location and technical rigging, I had to deal with extreme heat, sandstorms, and knife-wielding bandits before I got this shot.”

The Visual Geniuses: Leviathan Experiential Reel 2012

The amazing group at Leviathan sent this to me directly. This is some of the most exciting work they’ve done in the past year.

Leviathan is a design-focused production studio specializing in the creation of large-scale visual experiences across all media. The emerging studio’s leaders are champions of breakthrough design and branding who draw from backgrounds within the world’s leading digital agencies, production companies, visual effects and motion studios.

Also leveraging the talents of extraordinary storytellers, software developers, producers and artists, Leviathan develops cutting edge content that maximizes the greatest capabilities of today’s media platforms, from broadcast to experiential installations.

Leviathan is the same group that was behind Amon Tobin’s amazing visuals for ISAM, one of my favorite visual performances to date:

You can check out all of their work here:

They are doing things that I only wish I could do. If I could drop my proficiency in retouching and trade it for their talent, I would right now.

Thank you mudwerks Photojojo and life for sharing Kaufmann’s Posographe:  ”might be the most amazing light measuring device we’ve seen” A Light Meter-esque Instrument for Any Photo Situation   Freakyfauna says:

An instrument for calculating aperture and exposure time when taking photographs in any possible situation. For outdoors, it includes settings with values like “Snowy scene”, “Greenery with expanse of water”, or “Very narrow old street”, “Cloudy and somber”, “Blue with white clouds”, or “Purest blue”.
