I was looking through Photoshop tutorial sites tonight, a result from my newfound fascination with Photojojo, and found this.  It’s a pretty interesting video, and though Dove uses these goodwill-spirited pieces as their advertising campaigns, I think they deserve credit for the way they’re put together and the fact that they’re shown so openly and liberally.  That’s really what kind of statement it is, anyway, a liberal one.  Anyway, I saw this and wanted to share it, since we’re bombarded with “beauty” and society’s expectations and standards of that beauty all the time.  So here’s the link.  Enjoy (or something… I don’t know if enjoying is really what you’ll do with this).

Also, as a footnote, I want to say that HDR. is. awesome.period.

Photography Resolutions

When a cool DIY photography blog publishes a story called “Goodbye 2007, Hello Two Thousand And Awesome,” you know you’ve got to pay attention.  Photojojo I only just found last night, but already I’m extending beyond the screen in Firefox tabs, all with different pages form the site.  This particular post, however, is a great inspirational (and quick) read about what to do with your camera in 2008.  From joining numerous photo groups on Flickr, taking classes and even a few DIY projects (fisheye lens, coloring books, mosaic emails), it’s got me itching to go an snap away.

At the moment, I’ve got some more rotoscoping work to do, and then it’s off to lunch, but I’m thinking of taking a peek at some of their ideas in a bit more depth when I get back.  Check out their lively 2008 resolution post, and figure out what to do with your camera in the new year!
