In this first lively session, Joe shows and discusses light shapers from none to sophisticated, from big to small. The choice of light shaper is crucial to the look of the photo, and one of the principal tools we use as photographers to “speak” with the light. Lots of info on how to use and shape light.
6 international photographers come together to create this video. This is the first attempt at doing this across the globe and as unique as it is, we got it down and we hope you like it. We have to thank the new technologies like Twitter (which is how this started) and Vimeo for this to happen. All the organizing and image file forwarding was through emails and twitter, and communications were so much easier with it. Thank God for technology. :D

this project started with Kin Leong asking Ilan whether he would like to do something like this, and as it turned out, we had lots of friends that joined in. 6 in total and spreading across the globe, we discussed what to do and deadlines were set.
And files were uploaded onto websites and emailed across to Singapore where this video is programmed on a MacBookPro and loaded onto Vimeo to be downloaded again by the 6 photographers for use in their country. Pretty neat if you ask me.
This video will probably be the first of its kind, 6 photographers from 6 major cities, shooting black and white street photography.
Just for the love of what we would like you to see.
Thanks for viewing, I hope u are as blown away as we are doing this. It was definitely a wonderful thing to have 6 of us do this, really says something about the world that ain't all that different afterall. Thanks!
This is a short experimental piece based on the idea of a long exposure timelapse. I was trying to come up with a way to create the effects often seen in long exposure photography, but in motion. A lot of timelapse videos seem to have something rushed about them, and I wanted to create a more Zen-like feel, as it were.
