Via Domus

There once was a television show that caused me heart palpitations from wanting to know what was next...that show is called LOST, and was the season finale last night. LOST does have to do with photography though....Im not senselessly talking.Besides that....Ive been reading a lot about movie photography and shows and such, aka Still Photography. Apparently it is VERY different from all other photography. I dont really see how, but okay sure. "A movie still photographer is a person who photographs the movie's action (often alongside the camera) to be used in publicizing it, producing film stills. They provide the illustrations for posters, Web sites, pictures in newspapers and magazines, and other media.
Some shots are posed and taken separately from the shooting of the movie proper, while others are taken during the shooting. For these later, a stills photographer uses a "Sound Blimp" to silence the noise of the SLR's shutter so that they can shoot while the moving cameras are rolling."

I really want to learn this art, because it is such a huge deal in marketing. Portraits have its own process and execution and so does this. I find it interesting in the way you can capture these exaggerated times, it doesnt happen everyday when a Wolverine man comes at you with adamantium claws.

I wont lie...I might actually enjoy that situation.
