Orion Over Sky

0

Sriram Murali created the above video to show the effects that light pollution has on the beautiful night sky.  In it, he focuses on the constellation Orion, and how our perception of it changes based on the light density of the area we view it from.  The entire thing is a great example of one … Continued

Infrared Timelapse

0

I do love some Infrared photography.  There’s something awesome and other-worldly about it that is so enticing.  This time-lapse of Oregon is done completely in infrared.  I will say, some of the shots are pretty lost.  The nightscapes, and the meh mountainsides, those just look like filtered B&W.  There are a few nice sections of … 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

Tiny1 Astrophotography Camera

0

The Tiny1 is an interesting concept camera.  Well, it’s about to become a real camera if the Indiegogo campaign is any indication.  It’s billed as a dedicated astrophotography camera that’s small, lightweight, and connected to social networks and the mobile world.  In practice, I’m not so sure what this camera offers that a traditional DSLR … Continued

Self Powered Camera

Last year researchers at Columbia came up with a camera that was self-powered.  Using the energy from light itself the camera’s sensor, they not only record an image, but power the camera completely.  They say this was achieved with regular off the shelf items, and I pretty much believe that.  But it’s quite a long … Continued

Ansel Adams Documentry

As I make my way across the wilderness of Alaska taking photos, it’s worth it to watch this video of documentary of Ansel Adams and his processes creating some of the most influential photographs of the National Parks.  I wish I was able to say that I have fond memories of going through books of … Continued

The Milky Way, From an Airplane

0

At one point in time, I tried to start up a website for people to share photos they took from airplane windows.  I never had a chance to finish it which is a shame because it could have been cool.  Anyway, Alessandro Merga one-upped every wing-shot I ever took with one of the Milky-Way.  He … Continued

Slow-Motion Infared Las Vegas

0

I love Infra-Red Photography.  I have a filter that I put on my camera, and a point and shoot that I modified to be IR.  I’ve gotten some pretty good photos with it, at least in my opinion.  Phillip Bloom loves my infra-red as much as me.  More so probably because he’s converted 3 cameras … Continued

Happy Mother’s Day

Today is Mother’s Day in America, (and probably the rest of the world too).  Celebrate it if you can.  That’s really it.  Here’s a photo of some Crocus:

There are many important events in the history of WW2.  I could go on and on about them, (I usually do).  But I tend to focus on the big events.  Today is one of them.  Nazi Germany signed their unconditional surrender on this day in 1945.  There’s a lot I could say about it, but … Continued
