Is going to be 360º video, even live 360º video. You can already stream live 360º to YouTube and Facebook. This is either going to take off and have a huge impact on film making (point of interest is going to take on a whole new meaning) or be completely ignored by film makers.
Vimeo is now in on the… Continue reading
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’m not talking about cleaning up the house—that’s an ongoing project that stays “up to standards” fairly well.
I’m talking about my digital house. For several different reasons, it has become a cluttered mess over the past year—the past 3 months in particular.
So what did my digital Spring cleaning entail?
I disconnected apps that, without ever asking my permission,… Continue reading
Maybe, as a child I spent too much time running around barefoot on the sun-scorched, red clay roads of the Deep South, or heard one too many superstitions, sermons, or tall tales. Maybe it was the sounds of the frogs and the saccades, or the wind rustling softly through the low-hanging moss in the ancient oak trees, or perhaps the… Continue reading
I am always pondering, at some level, what motivates us to do and say the things we do. Today I stumbled upon this treasure. This short video of a TED presentation by Louie Schwartzberg is a “must see!” The pause and the reflection it brings are transformative.
Beauty and seduction are nature’s tools for survival because we protect what we… 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
Well, as seen through all of my KitCams and Instagrams over the past few years…
(I think the HD, fullscreen video plays and looks better at Vimeo than at YouTube. Interesting. Both videos are identical uploads.)

I have to say that I hate the fact that everywhere we now go is more of the same old same old. Every major international airport on the planet is like every other major international airport: forcing passengers to suffer through the duty free malls of the same pile of mess from the same old transglobal corporations.
If I’m forced… Continue reading
Having lived in Los Angeles, I would prefer to see these WiFi enabled elevated gardens than the urban graffiti that is billboards!

I came across this on Twitter. It would be hysterical if it were not true, and I’m just as guilty of this as anyone else. Almost nothing that we see in photography and videography is actually true to life. For better or worse, just about everything is “enhanced.”
