    Great idea.

  • Joseph:)

    I love this idea so much. i love old photographs to begin with.. but then you get to see the higher megapixel and color balance quality in the real life boarders, and how things have changed. The seaweed in the beach picture, the pebble path’s grassy edge, the condition of the old swing set.. And they really bring up memories of old photographs of my own.

    What a fantastic effect from such a simple idea! Wonder if I have any old shots I can give this a whirl with?

    As a photographer you would imagine that I had tried this, however, I haven’t but always love finding posts/blogs/threads where people have. So as today was such an occasion while trawling around websites for photographic inspiration and ideas I was pleased to find these :)

Music Video: “Hamidasumo!” (Heaven & Hell Remix)


There’s nothing that could be said to prepare you for this bizarre video for the Heaven & Hell remix of You’ll Melt More!’s “Hamidasumo!” you’ll just have to watch it below! The song is excruciating though so you can let me know in the comments how far into it you got before you had to mute it.

Free Learning of the Day: Skillshare Classes

skillshare-01 skillshare-02 skillshare-03

This is for all you aspiring photographers, illustrators, and type designers out there! We’ve teamed up with Skillshare to offer you 1 month of unlimited access to all their creative classes, for $0. Free. You can sign up here for a premium account: Booooooom + Skillshare 30-day extended trial.

I’ve been personally trying out some of their classes and I just blazed through this great class on designing a single letter: “One Drop Cap Letterform at a Time” by the amazing Jessica Hische (I’ll always refer to her as the one who did that fantastic Moonrise Kingdom type). She has so many useful tips in this, especially when she talks about properly using handlebars and plotting points in Illustrator.

From what I’ve seen so far these classes are a great way to brush up on something you may have learned a long time ago or a chance to learn something completely new. Full disclosure: Skillshare did not pay us to make this post, however if you sign up through this link it will support our site! Absolutely no pressure to do so – I still recommend their site as a worthwhile resource even if you don’t use our link!
