If you’re a photographer who covers extreme athletes like mountain climbers and wants to capture a moment from a unique angle, you’re probably willing to take some risks yourself. Like Corey Rich’s use of an incredibly precarious folding ladder tethered to the near vertical side of a mountain. Here’s to hoping he wasn’t working for free for the experience.
This particular behind-the-scenes moment occurred during a promotional shoot for the Nikon D4 where Corey apparently tried to match the extreme athletes stunt-for-stunt. The rig certainly led to a unique shot that you couldn’t get from a helicopter, but isn’t this what greenscreens were invented for? I won’t tell if you won’t.

Video. Hollywood recycles plots and story lines all the time. The same actors and actresses and directors are put in movies over and over. And the same sets are used to film completely different movies. It's an incestuous industry. Sometimes when you're watching a movie and you can't quite put your finger down on why a scene feels the same, it might be because the movie is using a film set that you've seen before many, many times.
Video. It's not the most comprehensive look at the history of food but Mode's video showcasing 100 years of dinner is really enjoyable to watch because it's just pure fun to find out all the stuff, both delicious and horrific, that people used to put in their bodies. The video captures the food trends of America pretty well -- TV dinners, SPAM, fondue, ethnic cuisines, kale! -- and makes you crave stuff you've forgotten about (sloppy joes) or just find disgustingly intriguing (creamed chipped beef).
