I have been sick all week, so I didn’t attend the tute on thursday. However, it has come to my attention that we were supposed to present a blog we like to the class.
Have you ever opened the fridge in search of food, only to close it two minutes later without any food, simply because there were too many options to choose from?
I most certainly have, and in picking my favourite blog I am facing the same problem.
The blog I find most entertaining is by an extremely negative and sarcastic girl, who mainly writes negatively and sarcastically about her life. Unfortunately she only bothers too write about twice a month, and the content is quite useless apart from being entertaining. Anyways, here it is, but neither of you will be able to read it as it is in Norwegian. Mwahaha
So. My favourite blog at the moment is one that I recently discovered (and I’m actually using it as an example in our hypertext essay). The blog belongs to cinematographer, director and editor Philip Bloom.
On his blog he posts work he has done, but also tutorials and useful tips for people interested in working in a similar field as him. It also contains (to a small extent) information about his personal life.
The reason I find this blog interesting is, logically enough, because I want to work in film. My goal at the moment is to become a cinematographer, however, directing and editing is also tempting sweets in the same drawer. Bloom provides advise for people who are interested in low budget filmmaking, and guess what, his main area when it comes to equipment is digital cameras. It so happens that I own a Canon D7, which is one of the camera’s Bloom use in his productions.
He has a well structured blog, which covers an impressive range of subjects. Here is some of the categories:
The combination of images, videos and text makes the tutorials easy to understand and learn from. I’m looking forward to continuing my partnership with Mr. Bloom (not to be confused with the feminine pirate in Pirates of the Caribbean).
