Opale – Les Champs Magnetiques

I caught this mesmerising teaser for a music video (directed by Nacho Guzman) over on BoingBoing the other day, and I guess I came for the video, but stayed for the music…

If you’re down with its dark, electronic vibe also, you can find the full track plus a longer remix version over on their SoundCloud page here: https://soundcloud.com/opaleopale.

Beautiful stuff.

Light Box Photography

Decided to make a light box/light tent for taking product shots with the multimedia monkeys in my class today – used the instructions found here: http://www.wikihow.com/Create-an-Inexpensive-Photography-Lightbox

Took the photo above earlier and touched it up a bit to clean up the background to a pure white, original shot can be found here.

Didn’t have tissue big enough to put over the cut-out sides of some of the boxes we used, so we just used grease-proof baking paper to diffuse the light (from a big-ass stage light) through. Just be careful with your white-balance when taking shots (as things can take on a creamy background instead of white if you’re not careful) and everything should be fine :)
