POLAROID

For more than 75 years The company Polaroid has pioneered instant photography since Edwin Land first conceived his instant camera. These designs allow us to embrace old technologies and bring them through these new times with ultimate technological advances in the area of  photography. I’ll tell you the story of how this amazing camera was invented.

  • In 1926 Edwin H. Land, founder of Polaroid, leaves Harvard University after his freshman year to pursue his own research on light polarization. Two years later, he files the patent first synthetic polarizer. He then stablishes Land-Wheelwright Laboratories in Boston with his former Harvard physics professor, George Wheelwright III. They continue to research and to produce synthetic polarizers. In 1939 Polaroid produces glasses, ski goggles, 3D glasses, and dark adapter goggles for the Army and Navy.

While on vacation with his family, his 3 year old daughter asks why she cant see the picture he has just taken of her. That day he conceives the instant camera “Model 95”  and becomes the prototype for all Polaroid Land cameras produced during next 15 years.

  • In 1963 they introduce Polacolor, the first instant color film “Model 100”, the first fully automatic pack film and exposure control camera. The stylish and low priced “Polaroid Swinger” is released and is extremely successful with a younger generation. 

The catchy “Meet the Swinger” jingle sung by Barry Manilow featuring Ali MacGraw makes the camera a household name. Lawrence Olivier becomes an advertising spokesman for the Polaroid SX-70. Life Magazine features the camera and Land on the front cover.

In 1977 The Polaroid OneStep Land camera debuts. This inexpensive, fixed-focus camera becomes the best-selling camera, instant or conventional, in the US. And in 1997 a modern Polaroid OneStep Express is reissued with a rounded body and in various color options.

With the new century Polaroid launches the Z340 instant digital camera in 2011, a fully-functioning digital camera and integrated printer that uses ZINK- Zero Ink- Printing Technology to instantly transform digital pictures into fun 3×4″ prints.

The latest model the “Polaroid Cube” debuts as the newest and smallest Polaroid lifestyle action camera. The 35mm camera is weatherproof, shockproof, mountable and packed with 1080p HD video, 124° wide-angle lens, and built-in battery that records up to 90 minutes.

How to Design Original Resumes for Creative Careers

In the world of creative thinking, there has been a revolution of digitalization, we have been bombarded with new tools, profiles, and even the creation of new areas of expertise. Writers, photographers, artists, and even fashion designers have needed to upgrade their skills when applying for certain jobs. Resumes are now full of innovation, imagination, and different artistic styles.

We grew up with the idea that the more serious and professional your Curriculum Vitae looked, it would be more likely to achieve the required expectations of the employers and, therefore, to be hired. If you’re a doctor or a lawyer, this might actually work, but for designers, artists, or photographers, it’s a long way from what it’s supposed to be. An artist’s resume needs to show the quality and originality of their work. This does not mean that you will hand in something resembling a high school graffiti. We are here to help you and we have put together some pointers to take into consideration, depending on your application and skills.
Design Students, Photographers, Fashion Designers, and Artists
Creativity is very important, which means their resumes have to be colorful, dynamic, interesting, and eye-catching, but at the same time, they have to be resourceful when showing the information required, always being true to the artist’s style without overpowering the document.
When you go online, there are so many styles of professional resume templates for graphic designers and artists that you can easily download and modify depending on the specific needs of the person.
If you have photos, paintings, drawings, or sketches, you must make sure to include a physical and digital portfolio of your work, specifying the year and the media used to create them. These have to be in high quality, medium to large size, so they can be properly appreciated.
The internet is full of examples of inspiring creative resumes and design portfolios. In order to stand out in this market, it is essential to make your online portfolio as inspiring as possible.
Production and Entertainment 
Productions with real budgets are always in need of individuals to do specific jobs. Therefore, remember to put your profession or your current position immediately after your name. When writing down your experience in the field, the best is to point out professional jobs first, then student and micro-budget projects last. Producers want to see that you have previous professional experience.
If you’re a recent graduate, add your education at the top of your resume and the experience, if any, at the bottom. You must list each position you have held, along with a list of concise points describing your job responsibilities at each company. If you’ve completed any significant personal film projects or won any awards, add them to the list.
There are websites where you can upload your resume, video, and demo reels when applying for specific jobs. Building up a network of contacts by studying media at school, film at the university, or attending a local filmmaking club. By meeting people and making low budget short films, as well as working on movie sets, will help you keep in touch with film crew members on social media. It is known that often directors and producers will work with the same people time and time again; therefore, this will increase the probability of finding a job in the area.
Finally, creating social media profiles and writing a great description can also help put your name out there. Participate in forums, online competitions, Vimeo, twitter chats, and Instagram profiles will definitely increase your chances of getting a job. Creativity revolves around us, digitalized on the internet, and you should try to be a part of it to let people know what skills you offer.
