New photo apps that heavily process photos get me almost every time! I have to try them out. I’ll never understand the digital magic under their hoods. Perhaps that’s the reason I feel so drawn to them?
So here are some experiments from today’s photo apps download of the Prisma app for iPhone. (Despite what you may find, there is… Continue reading
I hesitate to use a photo for this post, because each segment of his video has such a different look, and, as fantastic as they are, a photo misrepresents the most vital element of his work: the live motion. But these photos were on his site, which I recommend you check out! He also has done some very cool long… Continue reading
Yes, as time has allowed, over the past few weeks, I’ve been busy working on my photos from our recent trip to northern Arizona—God’s country!
[Update: The Northern Arizona, 2014, Gallery is now available at this link.]
Here’s just a taste of what will soon be arriving here at tt.us. All of these are HDR shots of sunset at the… Continue reading
The fires east of Mount Diablo threw so much smoke and particles into the sky that the sunrises the past few days seemed unusually colorful.
On Monday morning I was amazed by the colors of the sky and the fog rushing into the bay through the Golden Gate. I ran into the house, grabbed my camera, and hastily set up… Continue reading
When I awoke before the sun came up, the sky was filled with interesting layers of clouds. So I plopped the tripod on the front deck and started shooting the sunrise. You never know how the clouds and sunrise will interact. I was hoping that just before the sun peeked over the mountains, it would cause the low-lying cloud layer… Continue reading
All we need is a disco ball in this video: a time lapse of the sunset in Sausalito as seen from the front yard.
The closest cloud interested me. I had high hopes, expecting great and swirly things from it.
About 20 minutes into the time lapse shoot, I noticed that the clouds to the west, by Mount Tamalpais, looked… Continue reading
It happens really quickly!
I was “camped out” atop Hawk Hill, determined I was going to shoot a time lapse of the fog burning off the Golden Gate Bridge, the bay, and the city. The whole area was completely socked in with dense, fast moving fog. Torrents of fog were moving in over my head and down on top of… Continue reading
This morning (written on Tuesday, April 23, 2013) I was up early to shoot a sunrise timelapse of the Golden Gate Bridge from Horseshoe Cove.
You meet really interesting people in the early hours of the morning when you’re shooting solo, and this morning was no exception.
I’m not sure if that’s how he spells his name, but that’s… Continue reading
I was in Sausalito when I saw what the fog was doing; so, I rushed home and grabbed my camera equipment.
The location was fiercely windy, and the wind chill was extremely cold. Even though I was wearing a heavy shirt, wind-proof vest, and winter coat with a hood, I was freezing!
I was also concerned that the tripod wouldn’t… Continue reading
I have been wondering: wouldn’t it be possible to have multiple 360º panoramas (pole panos would be best) in relatively close proximity to one another and actually fly a virtual camera (using pan, tilt, zoom) through that 3D space creating the illusion of free flight through space, moving, as needed, between panoramic spheres.
Then, today, I discovered this: hyperlapse.
Totally… Continue reading
