Fooling the tiny eye | Paul CLARKE | Looks -Pictures, Images, Visual Languages | Scoop.it

 

"Here’s a tip: you can’t control a huge amount on a phone camera, but you can do a few really useful things to make more interesting images. One thing the camera will try to do is to find the “right” exposure for a shot. [...] The longer the exposure, the more light comes in, the brighter the image. Getting this “right” means the camera making a judgement about how bright the overall scene actually is.  Which can get interesting if there is a real mixture of light and dark. And you can exploit that by influencing the choice your camera makes. [...]"

Rear Window loop (2011)

Rear Window loop (2011) | Looks -Pictures, Images, Visual Languages | Scoop.it

 

A visual installation by Jeff Desom, based on footage from Alfred Hitchcock's "Rear Window" (1954).

"I dissected all of Hitchcock's Rear Window and stiched it back together in After Effects. I stabilized all the shots with camera movement in them. Since everything was filmed from pretty much the same angle I was able to match them into a single panoramic view of the entire backyard without any greater distortions. The order of events stays true to the movie's plot."

The New York Times Hawk Cam

The New York Times Hawk Cam on Livestream. "[...] what better way to celebrate the season than to watch as two red-tailed hawks incubate their eggs — eggs which could, experts say, hatch at any moment ? We’ve arranged with the City Room blog to feature their Hawk Cam this week so you can observe Bobby and Rosie, the birds who have made a nest on the 12th-floor window ledge of Bobst Library at NY University, in real time. Of course, we also have some teaching ideas to go with it.[...]"

Photos taken almost 40 years apart show London changes | Telegraph | Looks -Pictures, Images, Visual Languages | Scoop.it

"A collection of photographs taken almost 40 years apart show how London's streets have changed. In 1973, civil servant John Hutchinson photographed areas in London which were under threat of redevelopment. He feared the Victorian buildings that had survived the Blitz would be lost forever, so he set out to photograph them for posterity."

Thanks to @EnglishinComo for having me discover the pictures !
