1 Free Stock Footage Clip Is Following Protocol

Here is one of your more "typical" stock footage shots.  A lot of them are created digitally in a program like after effects, which is nice because you are able to produce a smooth clean look.  This shot is completely practical, taken from a real LCD monitor, and I learned quite a bit from shooting it.  Using my 180mm macro lens, I was able to get quite close to the screen (as you can obviously see).  What you see here is the red, blue, and green subpixels that make up each pixel in this LCD screen.  The subpixels are able to be addressed separately and help with things like font smoothing when viewed with the human eye.  I found this fascinating, because originally I thought it was an lens byproduct from poor focus called "Chromatic Aberration".  Seeing the red, green, blue pattern though, 2 things are clear.  This IS a pretty cool example of subpixeling, and this lens kicks some butt!

I've given a few address options in the clip.  You'll get the typical "http://www.", the "https://www", the "ftp://" and the "www.".    It wasn't until uploading the file that I realized I should have also included "192.169.1." into this group as well.  Sorry for that.

You can preview and download the clips by clicking "read more" below.  Happy Downloading!
