360° DSLR

0

You know that I love 360° video and photo.  I think it’s the next big thing in the world of photography.  Up until now the only way to get really high quality content was to attach multiple cameras together in rigs and stitch the resulting footage after the fact.  That’s all changing now.  Sphere is … Continued

If you want a neat DIY lens filter for your camera you can up-cycle an old clear CD case cover.  Using a sharp edged item, scratch some lines onto the plastic.  Points of light will show up as sun stars now.  It’s pretty neat, isn’t it?  Just in time for the Christmas season when you … Continued

This isn’t Necessary

Marketing people never stop amazing you do they.  The those from Coca-Cola Israel released a short lived marketing gimmick camera that attaches to the bottom of a standard Coca-Cola bottle.  It takes a photo whenever it detects a change in tilt of at least 70°.  That photo is a selfie.  It’s interesting, but as I … Continued

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.  I hope you’re having a grand ole day.  In the time honored tradition, I am thankful for my travel this year.  All 10,000 miles of it so far. {The Arctic}

Wooden Cities

James McNabb is a furniture maker, he uses a bandsaw to make these intricate city skylines out of discarded, and unusable scraps of wood.  I really like the above table.  Especially using the taller buildings as the legs.  It’s not practical for sitting around, or putting stuff under, but it does look cool. While these … Continued

Here’s a cool except from my trip to Kobuk Valley National Park.  Yes, it’s been over 2 months since I’ve gotten back, but I still feel the need to share these things with you. Playing in the #sand in #kobukvalley after we #hiked up one of the #sanddunes, we rested. Some people slid down them, … Continued

Daily 360

The New York Times is doing one of those 365 photo projects.  Except it’s video, and it’s 360° video.  And it’s pretty cool. I am a believer in 360°, I think it will be the future.  However, we need to get the bitrate compression better for the videos.  Everything looks like crap. You can check … Continued

Planet Earth II

I never saw the first one, but this looks good.  I’m pretty amazed at some of the footage they were able to capture.  Either they had drones, or super high resolution cameras and then cropped it in very far.  It looks like a good couple of hours to waste when it premiers sometime this year … Continued

European Time-Lapse

0

Paul Richardson, a photographer from Manchester, UK took this beautifully edited series of time-lapses around Europe.  The music really adds to the experience.  I’ve seen (and made) time-lapses before, and adding music to them makes all the difference.  Adding motion to the time-lapse is another great thing.  I’m just getting started with that, it’s quite a … Continued

New Moon

The above video shows a really neat interactive art installation made of welded steel, light bulbs, and LEDs.  The purpose is to allow people to see all the phases of the moon at once.  Turning the knob below the moon turns a mirror inside the light bulb moon which in turn changes the shadow effect … Continued
