After working on the latest cover for Macworld Magazine, Peter Belanger decided to show what is involved in making a cover, focusing on the three main areas: photography, photoshop and design.
Photographer Peter Belanger captured his work for a Macworld cover design by using time lapse and the finished video is remarkable. The amount of camera equipment used to get what appears to be a fairly simply shot is surprising. Photography is not an area I work with very often so maybe this is normal but it makes me want to explore it some more.
Along with Peter is Rob Schultz who does all of the Photoshop work in the video and I believe does the layout design as well. He uses a favorite software of mine Indesign but I would have guessed Quark for the layout of an Apple related product. Anyway, check out the video below.
Make sure to stop by Peters portfolio site and check out his amazing photography.
Tech Specs: Time lapse video was shot on a Canon 5D Mark II with a 24mm-70mm zoom. The actual Macworld cover was taken with a Phase One P65+ digital back attached to a 4Ã—5 Sinar X camera with a 65mm lens.
