Behind the front cover

In an age where you just turn on your computer and everything is there, ready to be explored, it's easy to forget how much work goes into making things work.

Peter Belanger is a photographer who was asked to shoot a cover for MacWorld magazine.

In an inspired bit of "here's something cool" film-making, he documented the whole process, using time-lapse photography, from the initial photo shoot through to the final completion of the magazine cover.

It's a fascinating little video. I especially like watching while the images are worked on in Photoshop to become the final images on the cover. It's quite a process.

Here's the link to Peter's website, where you can watch the video. I'd have to crop the size to embed it in my blog, and I really want you to see it in its native format.
