David Lindberg created a slow motion short film titled The Beauty of Mud and he filmed it all with his Canon T2i and 50mm F/1.8 lens. He converted his 720p 60fps footage shot at a shutter speed of 1/4000th to 4,000 fps using Twixtor in Adobe After Effects (you can also use Premiere or Final Cut). It looks pretty great and especially for being less than 1/10th the price of a Phantom slow motion camera it’s pretty spectacular. If you’d like to give it a go, you can follow David’s tutorial here.

This video by Jesse Rosten is the perfect example of how much photoshop is put into todays magazine cover photos and overused in general. How many models actually look as good as they do in photos in real life? It’s a question to really think about.
When Photoshop CS5 was announced one of the biggest features was content aware fill, a feature where you could just select any area of the photo and have it digitally removed. It’s a great feature and it really does give CS5 the advantage over CS4. But what if the next photoshop could take your blurry images and make them sharp again? Take a look at the video above and see how this new feature could save us from frustration over blurry images.
