Cite your sources, people!

The thing about tumblr that is annoying me most is that it is so bloody hard to find the original post.
Somewhere in the endless chain of reblogs, information is usually lost.

If people didn't attempt to keep that information available, all I would have seen were a few dorky portraits of Scarlett Johansson.
Nice for a chuckle and then moving on. Instead of realising that those dorky portraits are part of an exhibition that is on in Somerset House right now. And its free.

Oh yes, I spent an hour or two there today, creepily staring at portraits, trying to work out how they were shot or why they work.
(What? I have my geeky photo technique enjoyment and others reminisce about the films they have seen those portrayed in. It's all good.)

svenja just told me about the kerfluffle on tumblr about the new winter soldier poster. people are claiming it's shopped to anatomical uncorrectness and re-correct it with their own photoshop-jobs... and i look at them and go: no, THAT'S anatomically incorrect, it was shot from below, the arms need to be that long. i get you on the joy of dissecting professional photo and finding out how it works.
