Creating a Macworld Cover

Wonderful time lapse video of the creation of Macworld Magazine. The main three areas involved are the photography, photoshop and design.
I always thought it was simple but this video shows otherwise. Not only very high tech equipment is needed but also a high level of perfectionism.

On the technical side, for the time lapse video, I used the Canon 5D Mark II with a 24mm-70mm zoom. I chose the 5D because of its great image quality with high ISO’s. Canon’s sRAW1 gave me the flexibility of a RAW file with the file size of a jpeg. The actual Macworld cover was taken with a Phase One P65+ digital back attached to a 4×5 Sinar X camera with a 65mm lens.

What do you think?
