Functional Studio by Michael Durr

Casey Neistat is a well-known filmmaker based out of New York. He has a very unique style and a great sense of storytelling. This video series invites you into his studio and proves to be inspiring for someone like me with an equally high-standard of organization. I personally love the device he built for shooting table top videos and stop animations.Check out the functional studio of Casey Neistat.

Pierced Portrait by Michael Durr

After a nice Easter Sunday family gathering, my girlfriend and I decided to take a walk in a nearby forest preserve. We hiked to a small waterfall and after being there for about half an hour, a couple walked up. They were not the couple I would have thought to see hiking through the suburbs, but I knew immediately I wanted shoot their portraits. My girlfriend had to do a little convincing for me to actually approach them, but I did it. To be honest, I never even caught there names. I simply approached them and asked if I could take their portrait. That's why I love these challenges...It makes you think outside the box and gets you out of your comfort zone. My shot was highlighted on this weeks Gizmodo Photo Challenge.
