Quotable: “The Future Of Photography Is Convergence”

Over at A Photo Editor, there’s an interesting interview with Vincent Laforet concerning the future of photography.  In it he discusses where these photo and video cameras are heading, including how new technology will affect the vision required to capture “the decisive moment.”

Here’s what’s important, if you can shoot 120 frames or 96 frames per second at a high resolution, it removes one of the single most difficult aspects of being a photographer, which is to capture the “decisive moment.”

SF to Paris Timelapse

They say adding motion to a timelapse is the way to make it really shine. The folks at Beepshow used an Air France jet as a 5000 mile dolly to capture this cool timelapse on an 11 hour flight from San Francisco to Paris.

The timelapse was captured with a Canon 5D Mark II and 16-35mm f/2.8 lens.  Audio was mixed on an iPad and the whole thing was edited in iMovie and After Effects CS5.

Yet another reason to always get the window seat.
