Title: LLVJs -- for recent LuLa subscribers
Post by: Zorki5 on January 03, 2016, 07:25:00 pm
I'm slowly moving through LuLa videos, and one of the pleasant discoveries was that LLVJ issues are much more than what you'd think judging by their covers. For instance, #17, titled "Antarctica" had, among other good things unrelated to the Antarctica trip, this "Interview with Ray Maxwell on Colour":

Now, I do understand that for those who used to subscribe to LLVJ this message sounds like the [in]famous "I see what you did here!". But for those who, like me, only subscribed to site access after recent change, this stuff is not that obvious; so I'd encourage new subscribes to have a look inside even those issues whose titles you may not find that interesting to you.

Speaking of the interview I linked above: I find this to be a very good example of educational material that fits video format very well. You probably have to know things like perceptual and relative soft proofing already to be able to fully appreciate the interview... But imagine reading an article instead of watching this video. An argument had been made here about written material being better educational material, about how easy is it to skip what's not important to you etc. Well, you don't have to skip when you watch -- it's entertaining enough. And I did manage to learn something new: the "dirty little secret" of artwork reproduction, so that was half an hour very well spent.

I agree with you. Thanks for the link. I really enjoyed watching those videos and figure that the $1 per month membership fee is money well spend!!

I have several of them from the DVD days, and they always had treasures in them. I'm looking forward to viewing all of them before too many more years go by.
