Vendor Showcase | CGI, Retouching

I’ve seen enough Photoshop disasters this week, need a break. Here’s some eye candy from a few top shops, love when things are done right…

Amazing Textile Artist

Yet another spectacular use of paper by Belgian artist Isabelle de Borchgrave. The designs were created by painting and manipulating rag paper. So refreshing to see such innovative use of the medium.

Paper, beyond the sheet.

I’m really getting tired of hearing everyone bark about how print is dead. Print is the utilization of paper, paper occupies space, has depth, sounds crisp to the touch, smells, has so many tactile qualities. These characteristics of paper can’t be replicated through “interactive” (ironic term…) mediums. I especially enjoy the sculptural applications for paper. Hope you will find this compilation stimulating (although a flat computer screen doesn’t do much justice to three dimensional aspects).

Photographer Showcase | Food

Compilation/interesting mix of  food photographers. I know, I know, food photography…But there’s a plethora of talent out there (on the flip side, some gruesome stuff too…) I tend to be drawn to crisp/light or deep/dark exposures and cringe at the site of dingy yellow tinted shots (i.e. any food shots for semi-fast food chains, ugh nachos).

Stock Photography Resource Guide

A short list of some common stock houses I use to source imagery. pacaSearch is great because the search engine retrieves keywords from all of the major stock houses. Give it a try.

Photographer Showcase | Underwater

Amazing roster of ‘liquid’ talent. I like to remind myself (and clients) that great photography doesn’t have to cost a fortune. Many photographers offer stock images at affordable prices.

Photographer Showcase | Animals

I receive hundreds of emails each year from photographer representatives and make it a point to view each one, browse a few photographers, bookmark the notable and move on. Over the course of this year I’ve spent dozens of hours browsing through thousands of images, I hope you will take note of these photographer selections I’ve hand selected and appreciate the stellar quality as much as I do.
