Voyageurs Northern Lights

0

In 8K! Well, if you can even render 8K on your puny monitor that is.  This was taken up in Voyageurs National Park, way up in northern Minnesota, like, way up there on the border of Canada.  It’s not a place that’s easy to get to as much of the park consists of lakes and rivers, … Continued

The Photo’s Rise

For over 150 years The New York Times has been the pre-emetitive news paper of the United States.  Yes, in recent times it has started to lean more towards the left, but it still presents mostly all sides of a story.  I won’t get into the politics of the paper, that’s not worth the effort. … Continued

HD B&W Storms

Black and White is an often overlooked area of photography.  Especially when time-lapse storm footage is done.  There’s something about shooting in black and white that gives everything a more mysterious, serious, yet fantasy look.  Mike Olbinski shot the entire sequence in black and white.  Yes, there is some post-processing work done, but it’s natural black … Continued

360° DSLR

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}

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

I didn’t see it drop anything, though other people have said other teams have done similar things and it would drop raffle tickets, or give-aways and stuff. … Continued
