Many people think they have a preference for Realism. They don’t. From Wikipedia: “In the interview compilation book Directing the Film (Acrobat Books), Mamoulian declared a strong preference for a stylized look to his scenes, stating that he was more interested in creating a poetic look to his films than in showing ordinary realism. Parts of Becky Sharp, ...

In video production, you sometimes get to see someone’s dreams come true. This is one of those stories. Arielle Gold is well on her way to being a household name.

To lug a huge large format camera, glass negatives, and tripods to this elevation (13, 200 ft.), we’d have to resort to purchasing a mule just like one of the first landscape photographers in the region, William Henry Jackson.  Now we shoot 4K resolutions out of our backpacks.  Click on the ...
