I now have "All Comments" open in a separate tab that I can manually refresh without interrupting the video. #Lifehack

At least they used normal displacement and not bump mapping. GG, Bioware!

Having had surprised reactions at video editing in PS being possible, this seemed to be necessary to write!
 
Did you know that video editing is possible in Photoshop? Find out if it's powerful enough for your needs – Tuts+ http://buff.ly/1jeMHb9
I've found that not everyone knows that Photoshop CS6 and CC have video editing capability (as does Lightroom 4 now). It seems to me that for the majority of basic editing work that most photographers might be doing as part of the blurring line between photographers, videographers and filmmakers, Photoshop is a perfectly acceptable option. | Difficulty: Beginner; Length: Short; Tags: Post-Processing

Lighting array test in Blender Cycles, with/without lenses. Minor Glow effect in nodal post-processing. Since Cycles uses physical rendering, it should in theory be an interesting test; I'd expect the light projected through the lenses to create a pattern on the floor, and project further out.

Result: Negligible difference in projected light pattern, aesthetic improvement on lights themselves.

Very interesting... More research required? These are what intrigue me:
1) Shape of lenses
2) Size of emission material mesh
3) More/less lights
4) Distance to target

Almost certainly the comedic pièce de résistance of the 21st century.
 
Do they not realise they could've just used <%= solution %> ?

Candid snap in a YHA hostel in London when I got to play with a 5D2 and 70-200mm f/2.8 IS II. The crispness and bokeh is incredible. Can't wait to get hold of that lens. One day...

If there's a way to record, say, Justin streams, it'd be way better for interaction (as you saw yesterday afternoon!)

Boooo! (Not too boo, I guess, money is good). Maybe now Google has Twitch, they'll improve live stream chat...

Check out our quick start guide to Silver Efex Pro 2 for processing black and white imagery – Photography – Tuts+ http://buff.ly/1css6bP
If you're a black and white aficionado, you understand the allure of its silky tonality, its organic grain and its crisp detail. Bringing that into the digital age is difficult. Digital sensors can't replicate the tonal graduations as effectively. Low pass filters kill that crisp fine detail. However, Silver Efex Pro 2 is trying to help fix that.

I haven't really shared any articles on here in some time, so I'm going to reshare a small portion of them now. Apologies for the impending spam, but hopefully one of them will be interesting to you!

First up, fun with an Einstein!

Anyone of a more scientific inclination should enjoy this little writeup I did on ISO, I hope!
 
Most people understand the practical use of ISO, but what is it, where does it come from, and what’s difference between ISO in film and digital? I’m going to explore the history and technical underpinnings of the system. If you’ve ever wondered what ISO means or how it works, this one’s for you! http://photo.tutsplus.com/articles/theory/iso-a-technical-exploration/

Haha, it was! The easiest way to show what I was saying was a 3D diagram (plus it looked cool). :D

An article of mine for Phototuts+. Figured I'd put it out there for all those in the same position I was a couple of years ago, trying to figure out how exactly long exposure works.

(And yes, I do need to get some of those pics on my G+, but I don't seem to have a whole lot of social media time these days. :( )

This is the guy who lent me his 5D2 and 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II for a little while, which I took this with. A Parisian bus driver and photographer called Georges Laumord. He's pretty good, I'd say you should check him out but he's not on G+ yet. I might have convinced him though, we'll see. He didn't have much English, although probably more English than I have French, hahah.

Artist, writer, some design & film work. Maker.
Introduction

Photographer, occasional designer and codemonkey, wannabe mad scientist/crazy inventor.

 
Blunt and to the point, yet longwinded; full of clauses, qualifications and parentheses. Possibly self-contradictory. Often sarcastic, usually subtle.
 
Trying to be more sociable. Sometimes find it hard to be myself in the wild social ocean, so I step back for a little while to reconstitute myself.
 
My many and varied (but oddly coherent) interests (incomplete, no particular order):
The outdoors and bushcraft
Photography
Filmmaking
Music
Green/alternative energy
Self-sufficiency
Technology
Green transportation
Radio control
Scifi/fantasy novels
Traditional arts (drawing, painting...)
High energy hobbyism (tesla coils, rail guns, lasers...)
DIY/building/making/techie-ism
The environment
Metalwork
Electronics
