Interview With David Pasillas

Interview With David Pasillas | Tinkering and Innovating in Education | Scoop.it

"David Pasillas is a professional photographer currently based in Santa Clara, CA. He shoots a variety of subjects...

 

David began shooting and developing black and white film at the age of 16. He was introduced to the possibilities of digital photography at 18, and finally, got a DSLR 10 years after his love for photography began. He has never taken a class for Photoshop and is completely self taught. His editing style has been influenced by fine art photographers, HDR photographers, and matte painters.

 

In this interview you’re going to learn more about how David approaches iPhoneography and what advice he has for other people who want to take great photos with the iPhone. "

Notes: NOTE: This may be an odd post to include in my streams of suggestions. I plan to cross post it to a couple, so apologies up front to those who read the other Scoop.it sites of mine you see at the upper left of each home page.

This is an important and exciting interview. It reminds me of the book (yes paper book) "The Best Camera Is The One That's With You..." by Chase Jarvis ( http://amzn.to/1djbVwG ). The saturation of smart phone with cameras is phenomenal. Most people of all ages have one. So this applies not only to K-12 education, but also to Higher Ed and Corporate education/training as well. Not that everyone will become an artistic photographer, but that most people have access not only to cameras, but the ability to quickly share those images with their community or publicly. It should be noted that this is not limited to smart phone, but any mobile device like the growing number of tablets with cameras should read this interview as well. Living here near Washington DC I have watched more and more visitors of all ages and many different countries using their mobile phone and tablets instead of carrying around cameras these days.

One point not made in the article, but relevant to learning, note taking, education and training is that these mobile cameras can be used in novel ways to support those activities. There are applications to scan and convert snapped text into searchable content. There are apps that help people track spending with snapshots of receipts. Since I do not drink wine, I take a snap of the label for the wine my wife likes so I know what to get at the store. How about using mobile cameras to document "field trips", or document objects visually, or to shop by emailing a photo of that cabinet or dress to a friend to confirm it is the right one for you? You are only limited by your imagination whether student, instructor, or worker.

Palm-sized Quadcopter, the flying development kit | GeekBoy.it | Tinkering and Innovating in Education | Scoop.it

"A Swedish company called Bitcraze may just of provided the tool to scratch my itch! A tiny quadcopter called the Crazyflie Nano, that fits into the palm of your hand and comes as a kit.

 

Designed with home assembly in mind, once ordered you must mount and solder the motors. Being open source, you can easily expand the capabilities of the quadcopter to include features like an on-board camera / microphone. It’s basically a flying development board. It has a Flight time up to 7 minutes with standard 170mAh Li-Po battery." from Source: http://geekboy.it

These tiny quadcopters are amazing. I have watched YouTube! videos of the mobility of these. A Dutch research group have programmed four to work together with a net to autonomously capture or toss a ball in the air. Note that this is also an Open Source kit! I want one -- someday!
