What if cameras could talk?

So, what would a dinner party be like for cameras if they could talk? Watch this video to see.

Nerds, haha! I like the way they mock different accents though. Even when I don't exactly feel flattered by the Leica.

Computer Color is Broken

When blending colors, most software (including Photoshop) gets it all wrong. Check out this video to see how and why.

Ah ah - that explains what I'm seeing in some of my images.

So what's the fix then?


EDIT: - Just found this:
To have Photoshop handle colors the “correct” way, you can go to Edit→Color Settings→More Options and make sure “Blend RGB Colors using Gamma” is checked and set to 1.00.

Watch today's Photoshop wizards using Photoshop 1.0 - Funny!

Have you ever used Photoshop version 1.0? No? Me neither! The initial release was over 25 years ago. Back then, it was a different time...

I preferred Micrografx Designer to version 1, but started using PS at version 3. It came on about a dozen 3.5" discs. It's not that long ago that I threw them out.

Simple Product Photography - One light only!

So product photography requires lots of lighting equipment, right? Well, if you have the equipment, awesome. But as Daniel Norton explains in this video, one light and some diffusion is enough in many cases.

Photos from Hubble Telescope are... Photoshopped!!!

Maybe I was naive, but for some reason I though the images we see from Hubble space telescope of distant galaxies are the real thing. But as you will see in this video, they are actually photoshopped. Shocking! ;)

Yes, that is all true. I was most concerned with the comment that there is no color in space, whether it's bands we can see or not and the implication that the colors presented are fabricated. They represent the intensity of a band of light.

Building infinity... well... kind of

If you have a vast space in your studio, a carpenter. and lots of plywood, you can actually build "infinity"... or at least something that looks infinite in your photos.

Here's a video explaining how its done by +Karl Taylor.

Test of Time || Petra, Jordan 

There are places in the world where photography will always pale in comparison to the simple act of being there in person, and experiencing the moment with all of the magic it contains. And though I try to capture the feeling of these moments to the best of my abilities, I know that at best, I’ll only be able to spark a small portion of a true emotional response. My hope is that it’s enough to inspire people to visit these places, and experience it for themselves. 

I also believe that seeing beautiful destinations for the first time is a once in a lifetime experience that can only be matched by seeing it again through someone else’s eyes. That’s one of the reasons I love leading Photography Tours because it’s a way for me to relive some of the same sense of awe and inspiration that flooded my senses on my very first visit. Even better is the fact that I get to share these places with so many great people from all walks of life and help them get the best out of their photography there. 

I couldn’t be happier to announce that Ken Kaminesky and I will be leading a Dream Photo Tour to Jordan this November. We invite you to take a step back in time with us as we visit the ancient lost city of Petra and the Greco-Roman ruins of Jerash, float on the Dead Sea, ride a camel with local Bedouin people in the vast desert of Wadi Rum, and discover ancient culture that dates back millennia.

Πελάδα (Pelada)
 
This is a "pelada" the traditional wooden house the fishermen used to make in the lagoons around the town of Messologhi, central Greece.
 
They are supported on wooden poles driven into the muddy bottom of the lagoon.
 
From what I know this very one is not really old but it was made by the municipality of Messologhi as a "display item" so people can see what the real thing looks like (there are quite many modern variations around)
 
Modern or not, (and despite this annoying super-strong floodlight...) , it sure is photogenic as hell in its natural environment, the Klisova lagoon.

There are moments when that's really my only thought, because there's just no room for anything else.
