A young musician once said, “Don’t let haters get me off my grind; Whip my hair and I know I’ll be fine.” Taking this inspirational quote, I decided to delve into the exciting, yet challenging task of self portrait photography. An obnoxious electric green bedroom wall, remote control for your camera, and a full head [...]
We had a little meeting over the past week, when our spring breaks matched up. Ben’s break was the week before, so he Skyped in.
We all took up the train to Chicago last week to shoot the band Filligar. They rented out different studios at Electrical Audio, so we got some different looks on the different days we were shooting. The goal was the recreate the look and feel of when they recorded their album, The Nerve, there. If [...]
‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house, not a Nerd was editing, not one click of a mouse.
Merry Christmas from the Nerds in Disguise!
The group reunited last night to talk business plans, but still incorporate their love for the holidays.

The rest of the album is [...]
Matt’s making a website for Nate Patrick of Patrick Bros. Detail Shop, our first Nerds video. Thursday, Ben, Matt and I went out to the airplane hangar, home of some high-end cars that deserve to be seen more. I have no experience with shooting cars, but with a little direction, I had a blast. I [...]
Kate Spencer, a photographer and former classmate of ours at Glenwood, asked us to create a video for her website and her upcoming portfolio review. It turned out pretty well. Carolyn created some great faux viewfinder elements, which took a lot of time to keyframe in After Effects. However, they really add a polished effect [...]
