Photographing Earth from the Edge of Space... On a Budget
[ http://bit.ly/1GNIYuy ]

Now that's a weekend project I like. Going to the edge of space to take photos of mother earth. I guess it takes more than a weekend though... and it might be not quite so popular with your local aviation authorities. But hey, it's space!

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

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.

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.

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.
