I've been really interested in this photographer by the name of Gregory Crewdson whose work is described as cinematically inspired. They usually involved elaborate sets, lighting and huge crews to be done. In some ways i find it a bit absurd the amount of work that is done, but the pictures are intriguing and are very thought-provoking. Some of his pics:

I'm also quite intrigued by this photographer on flickr.com named snailbooty (http://www.flickr.com/photos/94177846@N00/sets/102082/). His shots of toys are pretty damn awesome because he's built small sets, and really composed the pictures well.

Now, i know this is the photostory section, but i think it would be really cool to have a contest where people submit a 'cinematic' style photograph. The picture would have to tell a henshin story in its composition, like a frozen moment of a movie. It'd be awesome to see someone go all out and built a set, etc and make something really rad.

what you think?

Well, if you judge it on your own, you can't really win and keep face. I'm only joking, the prize should be a rigelian hotshot.

I think we can make this contest deadline a ways from now. I know a few people are rather swamped right now.

Hopefully i wanna see if i can find a third party to judge. I don't really actually care if i win, i just wanna get an entry in because i really like the concept of a picture telling a whole story.

Why have a deadline or a winner, if there is no prize? Just get the pictures up, and we can all comment on our favourite. Mine will be my own, I'm sure (joke)
