Adobe Lightroom Summer Beach Bird Cam. Before & After

by Andrew Smith January 08, 2011 3 Comments

This image has a great perspective and I love the simple collection of elements. I used my Nikon D3 and the 70-200mm f2.8 lens (no it wasn't attached to another bird) I managed to lean over a cliff edge to get this shot, it has a great effect - almost like I'm flying. I did some pretty simple processing on it, just enough to pull the colors out.

I really like these before/after postings. I’m very uneasy doing so much processing to photos, not being comfortable about judging what’s just over-processing instead of improving a photo. I can use a lot more exposure to what the possibilities are. Thanks for posting these.

Logo Design for Mamie | By Violanine & Jeremy

Creative agency Violaine & Jérémy have once again impressed us with some bold new branding for Mamie restaurant. The new Paris establishment is run by Jean Imbert and his inspirational Grandmother (who we suspect is responsible for his passion in food). The approach is done in the V&J signature style, where the typography takes a lead role in styling the overall design. The concept is supported by a range of full colour vintage illustrations, which depict hand drawn organic vegetables and ingredients.

Photography Book Cover Design

Every now and then I find some great photography book cover design ideas, this little gem was one I recently found. It definitely makes me happy seeing things that have life after the internet. Books that make you want to read and enjoy right before bed. Seeing these projects helps inspire me to take more photos, and then actually do something with them. To often they end up just sitting on our hard drives or tucked safely away in on our cloud storage - never to be seen again.
