Hello, hello! I had taken a short, unplanned and completely unintentional blogging break but now I’m here again to share some of interesting, intriguing or inspirational bits and pieces of information gathered from all around the web. So if you are already in the holiday mood (hey, it’s public holiday in Croatia tomorrow- International Worker’s Day) and want to procrastinate a bit, let’s start with some videos!
Take My Picture is a short documentary about rise of popularity of street fashion blog and all the craziness followed by it. I remember when I “discovered” a first street style blog back in 2006., hel looks and even though I was not into clothes or fashion I really enjoyed it because the concept of it seemed so fresh and interesting. Fast forward 7 years and street style blogs are a huge trend that are definitely re-shaping our view on fashion, for better or worse.
I’ve seen many wildlife photos taken by Kevin Russ all over the internet but only in this short documentary I found out they were actually taken by an iPhone. Wow! Makes me loathe iProducts just a little bit less (but just a tiny bit). Also his story inspires me to pack up and go on a long trip (or maybe I’m just craving vacation) but, anyways this video is definitely worth watching.
How Sam Abell Makes a Photograph – From The Atlantic ‘First Draft’ Series from Ross McDermott on Vimeo.
I always love hearing about process of taking photos so I truly enjoyed this 10 minute interview with Sam Abell, a National Geographic photographer.
Speaking of National Geographic I like FOUND, a tumblr that is a curated collection of photography from the National Geographic archives. In honor of 125th National Geographic anniversary, the blog is showcasing photographs that reveal cultures and moments of the past. Many of these photos have never been published and are rarely seen by the public.
Over the weekend I started listening to Art Marketing Action Podcasts from Alyson B. Stanfield because I heard so many great reviews about them. I even downloaded iTunes to be able to listen (and that means a lot) and yes it was worth it. Alyson gives great business advice to any professional or aspiring artist and after listening to some of her podcast I fell simultaneously inspired and pissed off (because now I have no excuses not to implement some of her ideas :)).
Well, that is all for this short but sweet links of inspiration edition. I wish a lovely holiday to my Croatian visitors and a wonderful day to everyone else as well :)
