The hardest part of creating this short video was deciding what to leave out! Unlike any video project I’ve ever posted, this one actually has some video footage in it: from my iPhone (in horrible wind and weather) and 5Dmk2 (in a shaky helicopter). Even with advanced stabilization in post, the footage is, well, interesting! […]
This is pretty stunning. Be sure to watch it at 720p or 1080p! This was shot with a GoPro camera mounted to a DJI Innovations Phantom quadrocopter. Related articles Niagara Falls Like You’ve Never Seen Before (huffingtonpost.com)
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 […]
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.)
Tip of the fedora to KB for introducing me to ThePianoGuys! I had heard of them before but had not explored their music until she pointed me their way back in December. I’ve enjoyed their music a great deal since. I’ve especially enjoyed their YouTube channel. In fact, today, while working out on the elliptical, […]
After napping and getting my new glasses, we had dinner with friends who live just outside of London, the Davies. We met them at Leicester Square near the tube station. With the zillions of New Year’s Eve revelers, finding them was a bit of a challenge. We had been standing all but directly across he […]
I really enjoy being a docent at the Point Bonita Lighthouse. Saturday was particularly noteworthy. I seriously thought the lighthouse would be closed because of weather, but at the last minute, the day cleared up nicely. Well, until a couple of brief storms rushed in from the Pacific! We close the bridge when the wind […]
I shot this (at 1080 HD) yesterday with my iPhone using the @kitCam app. Lovin’ me some kitCam! Awesome app! Don’t forget you can click on the gear wheel and up the viewing quality when playing the video. Breathe…
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.” Fotoshop by Adobé from Jesse Rosten on […]
The Art of Flight. Yes, the dude is being dropped off on the snow ledge and is about to snowboard off of that cliff! Kick this video up to 1080p and watch it full screen. It’s lunacy! The camera work, the helicopter craziness, the editing, the daredevil nature of the athletic work… Tyler Ginter did […]
I like these building projections. This one, of the history of the 600 year old Astronomical Clock Tower in Prague’s Old Town Square is well done. Regrettably, I didn’t see this when I visited Prague.
In her latest exhibit, The City, artist and fine-art photographer Lori Nix designed a miniature, detailed, deserted world being reclaimed by nature. I’ve never seen anything quite like this before. Each miniature 3D diorama took between 2 to 15 months to create in all of its painstaking detail. Each was created to be photographed or […]
I’m just always fascinated by compositing and green screen. These traveling car sequences done by Stargate Studios are awesome—even to the reflections in the glass windows of the cars and the multi-angle shots. I’d love to watch one of these compositing artists weave his/her magic.
About a month ago they measured. This week they installed. The shutters completely change the feeling of the living room. Tim likes. Here you have about 4 hours of worked distilled into 1 minute and 20 seconds. Enjoy.
I just came across the photography and video work of Shaun Reeder. Wow!! At his site, he comes across as one free-spirited human soul that isn’t bound by the force of gravity. His adventures are stunning. His music, photography, and videos will probably take you places you will otherwise never go. In fact, watching his […]
The fact that this can be done, in total, from storyboard (if they had chosen to) all the way to upload to YouTube, on a $299 device, the iPhone 4, that also happens to make phone calls, is astounding. When Apple makes this all possible on an iPhone Touch and the iPad, they will rock […]
