Since the launch of this website, we’ve been telling you about the coming wave of Hybrid Photography that is about to revolutionize the photo and video industry, but even though a paradigm shift is about to occur that’s as big as the shift from film to digital, there are still a lot of people who are having a hard time wrapping their heads around what this shift will mean to them.
Well, a few days ago we put up a post by Suzette Allen, a highly renowned (and incredibly talented) photographer and educator who is one of our colleagues on DiscoverMirrorless.com. The video above was created by Suzette and was highlighted in her tutorial on How To Edit Your Video Clips in Lightroom 4, and we can’t think of a better example of Hybrid Photography, or the skillful blending of still photos, video and audio into a whole new art form. That’s why we wanted to give her creation it’s own post.
We think that what you’re seeing above will represent the “Senior Portrait” of the future, and we predict that over the next few years as more and more people get smart phones and tablets (and they’re already ubiquitous), the printed photo will become less important and Hybrid eProducts that you can instantly share on your mobile devices or on Facebook, Twitter, etc., will become that standard. And because mirrorless cameras are much better suited to creating Hybrid eProducts, you’re going to see them take over the market space.
