Photographer Rigs An iPhone 4 To Helium Balloons To Take HD Videos Here is a nice concept to compete with Kite Arieal Photography, Helicopter rigged cameras and very long pole photography. A bunch of curious DIYers at Los Angeles rigged an iPhone 4 to a set of helium balloons that helped it rise about 1000 feet and take 720p videos of Los Angeles. The footage is displayed below, while it is not perfect, and kinda shaky, there is also a valuable BTS. Hit the Just for some behind the scenes and my notes of the video here is the behind the scenes video that they took (probably to have some memory in case that iPhone would never be seen again).
Minolta MC Rokkor 58mm 1:1.2 Review - phillipreeve.net Introduction This is the most popular manual Minolta lens, I sold it twice just to buy another copy because it is such a nice lens. Its most distinctive quality is the great bokeh. It is pretty heavy and large for a standard lens and sharpness from f/2 is a tiny little bit worse than the much cheaper and somewhat smaller Minolta MC 1.4/50 but this lens has superior bokeh and is a joy to use. Specifications Size: (diameter x length): 70.8mm x 54mmFilter Thread: 55mmWeight: 478gClose Focusing Distance: 0.6mNumber of aperture blades: 8Price: about 350€ used in good condition (Germany January 2014).

Photographer Spotlight: Éric Lafforgue Éric Lafforgue is a professional photographer who travels for well-known magazines, documenting people in situations that most of the world doesn't get to see or want to witness. He's taken photos in areas that many would consider off-limits to travel, such as Somalia and North Korea, where he documents his subjects with a friendly intimacy that challenges our preconceptions about their culture and their lives. Some of Lafforgue’s most well-known images are from North Korea, where he traveled six times before being banned for publishing his work online. His photos capture unscripted moments of soldiers relaxing or even sleeping in the grass, all of which infuriated his hosts. Rather than take the images down, as they insisted, Lafforgue jeopardized his chances of future visits to the country for the integrity of his craft.
Blog In this film, photographer Ralph Lambrecht explains Modulation Transfer Function, MTF, in the simplest possible terms, supported with numerous visual graphs and examples. He also gives us some rules of thumb for reading charts and graphs. The modulation transfer function is, as the name suggests, a measure of the transfer of modulation (or contrast) from the subject to the image. In other words, it measures how faithfully the lens reproduces (or transfers) detail from the object to the image produced by the lens. MTF is the spatial frequency response of an imaging system or a component; it is the contrast at a given spatial frequency relative to low frequencies.

Contemporary Art The self-portraits by the Japanese artist Yasumasa Morimura, Requiem for the XX Century: Twilight of the Turbulent Gods, examines an array of historical figures and political events that have been significant in shaping the 20th century. Employing his usual methodology, Morimura uses costumes, make-up and props to create unconventional and bold renderings of iconic images from history. While Morimura’s work has traditionally investigated femininity through iconic depictions of women from art history and popular culture, this body of work examines widely disseminated images of prominent masculine figures from the last century. Each protagonist or event is cast in a moment of apogee, when history is being made and visually captured. Substituting himself for ideologues, dictators or brilliant minds such as Einstein, Lenin, Che, Mao or Trotsky, Morimura reflects on his personal encounter of these images during his lifetime as well notions of masculinity embedded in politics and war.
