From the National Geographic YouTube Channel:
 
German artist Thorsten Brinkmann is a self-proclaimed serial collector. He works primarily with items from resale shops and junkyards, incorporating the found objects into his photography and site-specific installations. Wearing a trash can for a helmet and a fabric scrap for a vest, he is suddenly transformed into a seemingly noble character that mimics the style of paintings done by the old masters. In this short from Walley Films, watch how Brinkmann creates these whimsical self-portraits for his latest show at the Rice University Art Gallery in Houston, Texas.

Due to a trademark issue (with Foveon), Breakthrough Photography has renamed their "X3" to line "X4". While the change means nothing to the quality of the product, it could cause confusion if you were looking for the older product name as it no longer exists.
 
In regards to the quality of these products, it is very high. Breakthrough Photography X4 ND Filters are what I use. Read the 10 Stop Neutral Density (Black) Filter Review. Then go get creative.
 
B&H has Breakthrough Photography X4 10-Stop ND Filters in stock.

Product Highlights

On the plus side, the Vello Flash Commander features a rotating head which can come in handy under certain shooting conditions. However, a downside is that the Vello Flash Commander does not feature an AF Assist beam like the Canon ST-E2.

Through tomorrow, you can save $100.00 on the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens (review) at B&H.
 
This is easily one of my favorite lenses. It's impressively sharp and (from my experience) one of Sigma's best performing Art lenses from an AF perspective.[Sean]
