Maui (Long Exposures) | Jeff Seltzer

Maui (Long Exposures) | Jeff Seltzer | Let's make photography | Scoop.it


I recently returned from Maui where I tried to branch out a bit from my usual photography style. I brought along a great travel tripod from MeFoto, my trusty Fuji X-Pro1 with 60mm, 35mm, and 18mm lenses, and a relatively inexpensive cable release. I also brought a 10-stop ND filter. I took shots during sunset, dusk, and moonlight.

To help with exposure,  I downloaded a great iPhone app called LongTime (just search for it) that helps calculate the proper exposure considering an ND filter - the way it works is that you (1) choose the filter being used; (2) choose the metered exposure without the attached filter; then (3) the app tells you what the exposure time will be with the filter attached.

So, for example, if you meter a scene without the filter that shows 1/15 shutter speed, you just tell the app you are using a 10-stop ND filter, dial-in 1/15 and it tells you that the shutter speed for a proper exposure with the 10-stop filter is 1m. Pretty slick.

For sure, the most difficult part of the photography sessions was dealing with all the sand on the beach while adjusting tripod, changing lenses (wish I had the 18-55 zoom), and taking the ND filter on and off. Add to this the fact that I really don't know much about proper landscape composition, along with vacationers walking in front of your camera without a clue...well, it was challenging.....

Two infrared long exposures for today's posts taken with the Fuji X100. I didn't have the Leica M8 with me, which is a putty, since would really like to see a “false color” version of the photos below, but the X100 did pretty well ...

Long Exposures with Fuji X-Pro 1 | Matthew Carbone | Let's make photography | Scoop.it

 

Everyone following me on Instagram knows I've been exploring long exposure landscape photography. Largely new territory for me, so I thought I'd post a little bit about how it's been going. All of these photos have been shot using my X-Pro 1. A terrific camera that I've enjoyed both as an everyday walk about camera and in this case a fully functional, high quality landscape camera.


What do you need?

Let's start with the basics. You'll need a camera, and a set of filters. You can use a screw-in filters, but I would recommend investing in a LEE filter system. What does that mean? You'll screw in an adapter here into your lens, then attach the holder. From there you can insert numerous filters and stack their effects. Here's what this looks like.

 

Experimentations

 

Being pretty new to all this, I thought the best thing to do would be to just experiment. Great Falls National Park in Washington DC provided a perfect location to do so....

8k timelapse for Fulldome Omnimax - technology demo & samples at planet5D (video)

8k timelapse for Fulldome Omnimax - technology demo & samples at planet5D (video) | Let's make photography | Scoop.it

Posted by planetMitch on December 12, 2012 • 


"I was cruising around Facebook this morning when I ran into Patryk Kizny’s (DitoGear and LookyCreative) new timelapse destined for the Fulldome of Omnimax, which he shot in 8K, which of course is easy to do with the right camera (in this case something called an Hartblei Hcam-1 camera (bit.ly/hcam2))


Omnimax seems like a perfect opportunity to use the super high resolution of 8k. But of course, the number of locations that can project this material is going to be very limited – for now."

A Terrifying, Fascinating Timelapse of 30 Years of Human Impact on Earth

A Terrifying, Fascinating Timelapse of 30 Years of Human Impact on Earth | Let's make photography | Scoop.it
A new interactive project from Google, NASA and the US Geological Survey.

Since the 70s, NASA and the U.S. Geological Survey have been amassing satellite images of our planet as part of the Landsat program, revealing a record of change over time: cities expanding, lakes and forests disappearing, new islands emerging off the coast of rising metropolises like Dubai. These historic pictures show stunning change across the earth's surface, in both our natural environments and our man-made ones.

 

Three decades of global change can be viewed digitally in a recent project between NASA, the USGS, TIME, Google, and theCREATE Lab at Carnegie Mellon. Landsat images taken between 1984 and 2012 have been converted into a seamless, navigable animation built from millions of satellite photos. As Google wrote this morning on its blog: "We believe this is the most comprehensive picture of our changing planet ever made available to the public."


Visit the link for more details and to view a few of the GIFs Google has created showing some of the most startling pockets of change...

Three Free Tools for Creating Stopmotion and Timelapse Videos

Three Free Tools for Creating Stopmotion and Timelapse Videos | Let's make photography | Scoop.it

Creating stopmotion and timelapse videos can be a good way for students to tell a story that they have developed. Stopmtion and timelapse videos can also be helpful when teachers are trying to help students see how a lengthy process like osmosis works. While good stopmotion and timelapse videos can take a long time to create, there are some tools that can make the process a little easier. Here are three stopmtion video creation tools that are worth trying.

Gianfranco Marini's curator insight, February 10, 2013 4:58 AM

Strumento webware per la produzione di animazioni che possono essere utilizzate per la didattica. E' possibile realizzare narrazioni (storytelling) o ricostruzioni di processi. Questo servizio web 2.0 presenta il vantaggio, rispetto ad altri webware o software simili, di essere semplice da utilizzare. Il servizio è gratuiito.

E' possibile: scegliere uno scenario, aggiungere figure, oggetti, elementi vari, regolarne le dimensioni,  animare i personaggi, farli muovere nella scenza. Inoltre si possono aggiugnere suoni, effetti speciali, musica ecc.

per impsotare l'animazione si utilizza una timeline. Il lavoro viene infine salvato online.
