The cover for the June issue of Esquire magazine was shot in video… Yes, video! The video-captured cover of actress Megan Fox is turning heads in the magazine industry, which brings into question the fate of traditional SLR photography.
Photographer Greg Williams videotaped the cover shoot with his 4K Red ONE video camera, while Fox “acted out a scene for 10 minutes.” The June 2009 cover of Esquire featured the best frame from that video. The issue is available on newsstands May 10. The rest of the video is to be featured on the Esquire site — here’s the link:
