BERG: Swiping Through Cinema, Touching Through Glass [video]

BERG has come up with an interesting concept: images extracted from HD videos of the products, while playing with both angles and focus, result in a pretty incredible experience.

Early last year we were experimenting with product photography for a retail client pitch. We wondered how we could we use cinematic techniques to explore product imagery. What would happen if instead of a single product image or a linear video, we could flick and drag our way through time and the optical qualities of lenses? What if we had control of the depth of field, focus, lighting, exposure, frame-rate or camera position through tap and swipe?
