Anyone who is interested in photography should know this video! These guys really created something fantastic that as far as I know has never been done before. I am awestruck about every part of this endeavour: from the general idea to the acquisition of the necessary know-how and materials to the spirit with which these stunningly shaded photographs were obtained!
If I knew how, I would so much love to create pictures like these by myself! Just looking at those extremely fine, metallically shining gradations – that is to say – nuances of brightness makes me want to weep with joy. The sheer brilliance and clarity of these pictures is probably simply not attainable with a standard consumer camera. Not to mention the amount of background blur you can get with this camera because that is just over the top!
Congratulations to Ian Ruhter and his team for doing this and taking all the risks that come with it!
