New Year’s Eve fireworks

November 30, 2009 Leave a comment


The final days of 2009 are winding down and another New Year’s Eve fireworks show will be taking place downtown! I adjusted the levels slightly, brought out the reds in hue/saturation and used the unsharp mask filter.

This might be one of the oddest things I’ve seen, yet still unique and intriguing. Two young Japanese performers known as the Helicopter Boyz have multiple Nikon Coolpix S1000pj cameras strapped to them and the cameras project various images during the choreographed dance. Click on the second box for the video.

I’m interested in buying a 7d so I’ve been doing a lot of research on the camera. I found this page to have one of the most easy to follow and informative reviews of the camera. They do a good job of covering the video mode on the 7d. That’s one of the main reasons I’m interested in the camera.
Some of the interesting bits of information I found about the camera are :
One of the major downsides to the 7D is the 12 minute recording limit for video.

We noticed the camera getting very warm (dare we say hot?) during recording durations longer than 4-5 minutes in an air-conditioned room.

Another troubling omission on Canon’s part is the audio recording capabilities on the 7D…the camera has automatic gain control (AGC), which adjusts the volume of the audio signal inside the camera. The problem? It’s impossible to disable. If the point of an SLR is to give the user full control over the tiniest details of their camera setup, then there is absolutely no reason why this crucial function should be left to the camera’s discretion.

I used the accented edges filter and adjusted the levels slightly to bring the color out in the food. The filter took a bit of the detail out of the food, but I thought it gave the image an interesting look overall.

Article: Light Graffiti Cars
http://se7enmagazine.com/culture/57-global/750-light-graffiti-cars.html

English photographer Mark Brown created a series of images of iconic cars using light graffiti. Brown’s collection of images are worth checking out, especially for car aficionados. I’d like to see a tutorial on how long it takes him to create each image.

“Choosing cars with eye-catching style and innovative design, I was able to construct images that capture the clean lines in each concept. The Iconic design of such models as the classic VW camper Van and Beetle to the equally iconic, but more modern styling of the Audi R8, the Morgan Aero and many more are works of art in their own right so lend themselves very well to this type of imagery. Every design that I have chosen, in my eyes, lives to be viewed,” Brown said.

After seeing some of Brown’s light graffiti work I decided to visit his personal site. As expected, he’s got some interesting light painting images in his “Fine Art Landscape” gallery. He also has some nice images in the “Landscape/ Wildlife” gallery but the colors seem slightly dull. It might be the computer I’m using, but the images look like they could use some slight adjustments to make the natural colors of the earth and animals really standout.

Commercial Photographer lands at number eight on the list. 100% of the photogs asked said their job is stressful, compared to just 58% of Probation/Parole Officers who felt their job was stressful

“”One time I was doing a portrait of two guys who owned a construction company. The next thing I knew I was standing on this little catwalk under the Throgs Neck bridge [in New York City], dangling above the water because it gave me this great angle,” said Gale Zucker, a photographer from Branford, Conn.”
