I love ballet! And yes, like many other girls, when I was a kid I dreamed about being a ballerina. So when a friend sent me the link to photographer Dane Shitagi's project, NYC Ballerina, I was totally amazed. Dane's images capture the beauty and elegancy of ballet dancers in a landscape that by itself is already breathtaking, New York City.
Even if you don't like ballet, the photographs are so beautiful and inspiring that you will like them. It is a mix of subtle and strong, clean and dirty, quiet and noisy.
Movies in Color is a site featuring stills from movies along with their corresponding color palettes. Curated by graphic designer named Roxy Radulescu, the site Movie in Color is updated daily. It’s a beautiful tool that shows the relationship between color, cinematography and production design.
The idea started when I was watching Skyfall. I was taken with the cinematography and use of color more-so than the story itself.
It's always incredible to see what designers and digital artists can do with the tools available nowadays. Photoshop has become such a powerful tool that it's possible to make some simple and clever ideas come true with precision and style. A good example is the official poster made for a jazz festival in Trondheim, Norway by Christoffer Meyer. It's a simple idea executed to perfection and that's why we were inclined to share the creative process behind it.
