Hasselblad Suite

Who are all these morons spending all this money on medium format gear in film’s waning days?

Oh wait, that would be me.

Just picked up a Hasselblad 500CM Chrome, 80mm C T* Planar lens, and 120mm CF T* Carl Zeiss Makro Planar lens, all in great clean shape. Will be posting photos taken with this set up soon.

It is so very nice to lick the adhesive flap and tighten it in the final wrap around an exposed roll of 120 film again.

The Best Part of Eating 갈비 (Galbi)

At many Korean restaurants, galbi (since when did they start spelling kalbi with a “g”?) is served as a big raw ribbon of meat anchored to a single short rib bone. The meat is then snipped off of the bone and scissored into bite size pieces and placed onto the table grill.

Normally, that short rib bone with its little hanging chads of meat, gristle, fat and tendon is left on the raw plate and cleared back to the kitchen. This is a great treat that is often overlooked. Ask for the bones to be cooked and the waitress will return them to the kitchen to be grilled separately.

Even Koreans will remark that you eat like such a Korean as they watch you munch the savory fatty strips off the bone.

Good stuff. And you won’t need lip balm for weeks.

Peter Belanger | MacWorld Magazine Cover Shoot

Peter Belanger has created an entertaining and informative time lapse video of his creation of a MacWorld magazine cover. The video follows the entire process from shooting in the studio to post production to design. It is a great insight into the world of studio and product photography all the way to the end result.

I have a few friends who love the process of product photography: hours and hours in the studio, tweaking dental mirrors for bounce highlights, a fort of cards built up around the table, weekends spent testing and experimenting. Though there is a lot of money to be made in product shooting, thank God for my friends who love it because I do not get it.

There can be a chasm between those who document and capture, and those who create. It is obvious which school I belong to, but I must say I am completely in awe of the technical prowess of product shooters.
