Samsung Offers Photo Tips Hoping You'll Buy Their Cameras


Well here's an interesting way to pimp a a new video: "We've not pushed these out to any websites - just a hushed public launch, because they're so heavily branded and we don't want people to feel like we're trying to trick them in to watching the campaign"

Fair enough. So the video is for Samsung and it's actually six videos in one. Each video displays the magic of Samsung cameras' ability to transform subjects into, well, something other than they really are. And that's a good thing. Some of these subjects are pretty creepy.

It's all about the angles, baby. Which, oddly, doesn't really promote the camera so much as a particular style of photography that pretty much any camera could accomplish. But...we're nitpicking. Oh wait, that's what we do.

So yea. What the hell, Samsung? Are you trying to sell cameras or give photography lessons? Not that that's a bad thing, of course.
