Over the next few weeks, I will be traveling thousands of kilometers to work on my book Pursuit of Dreamers. A few months ago, I stopped it after I suffered a hard drive crash and only managed to recover 15 % of the book.

If you haven't heard of it before, here's an interview I did with FIve Point Five: http://fivepointfive.org/photographer-feature-in-pursuit-of-dreamers-by-karl-johnston/

I'll be traveling through Saskatchewan, Alberta, Eastern British Columbia & the Northwest Territories for 3 weeks. Wherever I go, whether people approach me or I approach them, I will be asking for the answer to one question: What is your dream in life?

So ya, look forward to some of the posts :) I'll be putting up them as soon as I can.

Pretty much living in the future now.. reminds me of Tony Stark's light computer displays.
Say the word 'display' and one easily anticipates an image on a screen or on a table surface or within a next-gen box enclosure. Last year, Aerial Burton went another route reminding everyone that something else is possible. The group demonstrated an aerial 3D display that projects text and images into ...

Tell me about a "I hit the lotto" shot you created. An image that you made by coincidence. As in, you did not intend to create but it worked out anyway.

In this shot, I was playing around with gels and wanted to create a colorful, candy-like look. Make it look like there was some gel like flare being bounced back into the lens like you see in those really stylistic glam shots on the web..

I wasn't entirely sure what I was doing and was working with bare flash, even failing to properly arrange a 3 light set up, not really the dramatic look I was hoping for. I randomly assorted them all over the room, about 4 flashes with all different kinds of gels on them.

I even had a couple hanging from the ceiling, one on the floor. Some bounced on the ceiling and some on the walls. Then waved a filter gel around because I read on someone's blog it may add a hint of extra color.

G+ is surprisingly a lot smoother lately. Reminds me of ELLO now. That said, I'm also over on ello: ello.co/karljohnston

Been shooting a lot of food and cooking videos lately, managed to get one potentially published through a US based online mag. Looking forward to seeing what that looks like in layout

Nothing too competitively brilliant yet but hopefully my skills improve quickly. Am also doing a course in calgary (managerial accounting) and a course through EDX (harvard X) (computer science). Fairly busy summer!

I love psychedelic trance music, come up with my best ideas and visions of what shoots should look like when I'm listening to music and brainstorming.

Very cool stuff
A group of University of Wisconsin-Madison engineers and a collaborator from China have developed a nanogenerator that harvests energy from a car's rolling tire friction.
