Hidden Tombs

Europe is full of old stuff.  So many old things are so old that it’s not a surprise to people when records are misplaced, and memories lost to time.  That just so happens to have been the case under the floor of St. Mary’s Church in London.  While renovating the church in order to turn … 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

D-Day

Seventy-two years ago the greatest invasion the world has ever seen began.  Led by the great Dwight D. Eisenhower, over 150,000 Allied troops landed across 5 different stretches of beaches in hopes of liberating France from the clutches of Nazi control.  This might not have been the turning point of the war, but in the … Continued

Church Drone Shot

0

Filmmakers Guillaume Juin and Joris Favraud, over at their company BigFly, did something most people wouldn’t dare, they flew a drone inside a Byzantine Church in northwest France, the  Saint Louis Church in Paimboeuf.  Guillaume is the pilot of the drone, while Joris controls the camera direction, pan, and other video things.  Together they spent time … Continued

Gear Like Modular Lighting

0

I think they look like bicycle gears anyway.  Andrijan Mueller of Switzerland, who made this says they’re hexagons.  They look like that.  As you’ll see below, each arm of the hexagon/gear is one part of the lamp and can be mounted however he sees fit. This makes the whole thing modular, I like it. The … Continued

Traveling in America II

0

This is not quite the same as the Colburn Idiots, but it’s still quite funny.  This Irish father went on vacation to Las Vegas and borrowed his son’s GoPro camera and a selfie stick with the intention of documenting the trip and showing everyone what’s going on.  Well, he had the camera pointed on himself … Continued

HyperZoom Technique

0

Photographer Geogg Tompkinson has come up with a really neat technique of stitching together photos taken at different zooms to create a seamless timelapse that makes it look as one long continuous shot.  The photos were taken over a 2 day period, but I’m sure the post work took far, far longer than that.  I … Continued

European Photographic Freedom

Europe is potentially about to get alot more photographer unfriendly.  On July 09, 2015 the E.U. Parliament will vote on an amendment to copyright as it applies to publicly view able buildings and art work, more commonly called Freedom of Panorama.  The proposed law change would make photographing any public building, monument, or artwork and … Continued

Petty Euro Money

0

I don’t usually get into these more serious news items, (I’m linking to the New York Times, wtf?!), but this is just too good to pass up. In order to commemorate the 200th anniversary of Napoleon’s loos at Waterloo, Belgium initially wanted to mint a 2 Euro coin for it.  However, France has objected to … Continued

The Great War

0

World War I began in July of 1914.  It changed the world.  I could go on about what changed, but you should have learned all that in school.  Oh, you didn’t, that’s right, unfortunately, The Great War, is always overshadowed by it’s younger, more deadly & exciting brother, World War II.  That’s ok, in fact, that’s completely … Continued
