Perfect Images

Even if you're not a perfectionist, seeing a perfectly layered coffee just feels good. "These photos of symmetry and order are appealing to humans and animals alike.

Arnold T-800

Enlisted to produce articulated puppets and prosthetic effects in T2 was Stan Winston's studio, who was also responsible for the metal skeleton effects of the T-800.

Polarizers remove scattered light which is why putting them on reduces glare and bright spots, so with a polarizer it blocks all the bright scattered light from the sky and makes the rainbow more visible."
