Web pearls: part II

Twin Lens refleXions ...

This is another pearl recently found on Vimeo. I already signalled it to 591 but it's worth leaving a trace here too.

This time the video is about how to "seriously" take a boring thing like photography and start from scratches building a camera on our own.

Web pearls: part I

Polaroidetional ...

Surfing on Vimeo I recently ended up into this little piece of wonder.

It is a promotional film made by Polaroids in early 70's explaining, with an almost poetical touch, how the instant photo system used to work and could be used to get images that today we might achieve after sitting hours in our lightroom. I think these are ten minutes well spent.

Well, this is also the first time I bring something into this blog that is not exactly dealing with me. It has the double intent to remember me good things I've seen on the web and to share these "pearls" with anyone else on the other side of this screen.
