Survey the effect of color temperature and its psychological effects from the incessant heat of Spike Lee’s “Do the Right Thing” to the icy chill of the Coen Brothers’ “Fargo”. Then we look at the science of color temperature from it’s beginnings with Max Planck to how color temperature is measured with new alternative sources of lighting before looking at some practical and artistic uses of white balance. Then create your own short film where you will demonstrate the difference between Hot and Cold color temperatures.
This project was created with the same spirit that america was founded on. Our intentions are to connect everyone in america through the lens of this camera and social networking sites. We can't do this without you. We want to tell your story and show your city or town through photographs of you, and people you know. As we travel around america looking for people and places to shoot you will be able to keep track of where we are going and help us decide where we go next. Join us in our journey by liking our facebook to get yourself photographed by us.
An extra special thanks to Brandon Rein, Scotty Hoffman and Trevor Atwater.
Sam Stephenson, a writer and director of the Jazz Loft Project at the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University, Durham, North Carolina, spoke May 11, 2010, at the Ulrich Museum of Art at Wichita State Univeristy about the life and work of photographer and Wichita native W. Eugene Smith. Smith, who worked at the Wichita Eagle and the Wichita Beacon, made his name as a combat photographer in World War II and then went on to become one of LIFE magazine’s celebrated staff photographers at the magazine's mid-century, pre-television pinnacle. Stephenson has been researching Smith's life and work for 13 years, and authored three books on the artist, uncovering two mammoth "lost" parts of Smith's career, the Pittsburgh series and the Jazz Loft Project. Stephenson will focus on the fever and passion of Smith, whom art critic John Berger has called "the most religious of all photographers."
