‘The Diamond Boutique’. By “Creneau International”.


A diamond exhibition has been designed in Maasmechelen Village by Creneau International, and “It is a BEAUT”.  When they were assigned to create a design for a ‘Love the Diamond boutique’, this INCREDIBLE interior instructor gave life to one of the most artistic, colorful, and visually pleasing exhibitions we here at djstormsblog.com have seen to date. 

They started their design with the origin of the diamond: (crystallized) carbon.  Diamonds consist entirely of crystallized carbon. Carbon can only crystallize at extremely high temperatures and pressure; circumstances found 150 kilometers below ground. Crystallized carbon rises to the surface through volcano eruptions, sealed in volcanic rock.

The black rough stone that emerges from the heart of the earth has, after lots of grinding and polishing, a shiny core with many facets and colors. This is exactly what they see in the interior design. The walls are painted black and look like they’ve plastered them with carbon. At the center of the exposition an iridescent volume is shining in an array of colors and facets.  This can not be exemplified by photos.  This is TRULY a sight to behold.

Who’s Your Local Preacher?


The word “colorful” is a massive understatement when considering the collection you just scrolled through.  “Cyber Sound” is one of the newest art additions to ‘Local Preacher’s photography collection, and as aligned with the rest of his work, it is AMAZING.  As a DJ, it’s incredible to see the tools I use being so eloquently portrayed in such amazing photos.  Shouts to ‘Local Preacher’ and his amazing ability to use lighting to exemplify the intricacies of the gear myself, and everyone else who does what I do in his work.

The ‘Generational Gap’.


Seeing as how my birthday was recently, I’ve been hearing many a story from my childhood today.  But listening to this has brought back memories that only people in my age range would associate with.  Once again, the amazing photographer Mike Campau has captured these images perfectly.

Generation gap.

Images of my childhood, when we…
had to get up to change the channel, collected enough stickers to fill a photo album
(oh, and we had photo albums), video games were for rainy days, used film to capture images, cranked up our boom boxes with homemade mixed tapes, ran around with toy guns that looked like the real thing, and had to “dial” a number.

Virtual Nostalgia (100% CGI)

 

‘Beat The Robots’.


The “Beat The Robots” advertising campaign is one that stuns the eye, and captivates the imagination.  As you can see by the photos above, these life-like creations of bionic humanoid creatures is nothing short of incredible. The overall finished designs should be the envy of film makers across the world.

The layouts, intricacies, and especially the textures that are used in the designs, are quite spectacular.  The digital animation required to create these visuals are almost beyond comprehension given the final results, but here are the credits for the amazing pictures.

Through The Looking Glass.


Teaming up with photographer Atiba Jefferson, Mike Campau wanted to come up with a new way to show traditional portraits. Campau states that “Images affected by glass refraction has always intrigued me, so I thought I would start there.” After trying to use more traditional effects to achieve the proper look, the logistics of trying to stack and overlay them proved to be quite impractical. Mike then turned to full CGI for the glass effect.  But regardless of the technique the combination of Atiba Jefferson and Mike Campau on this photo project is incredible.  Check the method below.

Tali Rutman’s Photography.


Russia may be on America’s radar for some ugly reasons, but it’s on ours for some beautiful ones.  Photographer Tali Rutman has an incredible collection of photos, featuring a model painted with replicas of amazing abstract paintings.

Danai Gurira Is More Than Just A Dora Milaje.


 

Since her captivating performance on the hit show ‘The Walking Dead’, Danai Gurira has been one of my favorite actresses.  But since her two most recent performances (Black Panther, and Avengers: Infinity War) as the certified badass Okoye of the Dora Milaje, Danai has solidified herself as one of the best.  Not to mention her most recent shoot in ROUGE Magazine.  Check out the images below.

 

The difference between the cadet photos, and the more polished ones are astonishing, simply because both sets are incredible.
