Jonas in NYC by Michele Palazzo

This Photograph of the NYC Winter Storm Looks Like an Impressionist Painting

MichelePalazzo01aWhile walking through the Jonas Winter Storm that swept across the East Coast last week, photographer Michele Palazzo captured this incredible shot of the Flatiron Building against a backdrop of swirling snow. With the exception of a few minor details like logos and a food cart, the image looks like an impressionist right out of another another century. The cloudy atmosphere and gusty winds creates patterns that appear uncannily like brush strokes.

Miniature Studio Softbox

SlickforceSoftlight™ – Pre-light Reference Tool

SlickforceSoftlight01aThe Slickforce Softlight™ is a miniature replica of a professional octagonal softbox that can be used to help artists pre-visualize their studio and on-location shoots, photograph their collectible miniatures or action figures (we favor Star Wars Stormtroopers) or just have a cool conversation piece on their desk.  Moreover, the Softlight is great for children, too. These budding photographers-in-training can play photography with their dolls, action figures or any other toy.

SlickforceSoftlight01bThe Slickforce Softlight™ actually functions in the same manner as a real softbox, shaping light with its umbrella and translucent diffuser design and highly reflective silver interior surface. Octagonal softboxes are most commonly used for such purposes as fashion, beauty and portrait photography. One of the most important reasons for this is that their unique shape creates a beautiful, soft, natural looking light source, as well as an attractive catch light in the subject’s eye.

SlickforceSoftlight01cThe Slickforce Softlight™ comes with a silver umbrella, octagonal translucent diffuser, light stand-base, 2 extender poles and a working miniature battery generator.
