In 2008 photographer Tim Hetherington won the world press photo award. We were lucky to publish an interview with him afterwards. About three years later in April 2011 Tim Hetherington died in Misrata, Libya. In memory of him the photo and video blog ARC pusblished a moving and inspiring video interview.

In this interview Hetherington talked about how digital technology is changing how we think about images, about who we are as image makers and what we can do with images. He said: “Sometimes I have been provocative about that. In an interview when I won the world press image I said I am not interested in photography.”

DSLR-Musikvideo: Saturday Night

31.3.2010 · · 1 Kommentar

Nowadays you can shoot brilliant videos with digital SLR cameras. But often audio remains to be a huge challenge. Photographer and musician Sebastian Niehoff doesn’t have that kind of a problem. The 29 year old shoots music videos with his Canon 5d Mark II and imports the audio from a sound studio recording. His first video “Saturday Night” from the Band King Size Clan shows the result.

However, we at Flare cannot quiet agree on the video. Timo (friends with the photographer) says: «Great images, interesting change between color and black and white, funny guys – a great debut, especially for a self-taught person.» Ole disagrees: «Way too fixed, too heavy on photos, hardly any variety – and awful music.»
