Tips Long Exposure Photography | Night Photography Photographing the Ferris Wheel To photograph a Ferris wheel at night, move close and use a wide-angle lens to get as much detail as possible. Place your camera on a tripod and frame the image. Because we want all the elements to be sharp, choose a small aperture between f/11-f/32. Set your camera to either Manual or TV (Shutter Priority) mode and choose a shutter speed according to the speed of the lighted Ferris wheel, and the style you are after (anywhere between 1-30 seconds). You should take the image using the camera’s self timer or a cable release so that you avoid touching and jiggling the camera. Making Star Trails A long exposure on a starry night can produce beautiful light trails created by the stars and the rotation of the earth. Stunning Light Trails Traffic head light and tail light trails give a stunning effect and are a great way to get acquainted with long exposure times.

Time-Lapse Camera Controller Simple digital cameras can produce remarkably good quality photos and are now cheap enough that it doesn't hurt the wallet too much to buy one with the intention of modifying it for use in a project. You may even already have an old digital camera that you don't mind sacrificing for a good cause! Modifying a camera to control it from an Arduino opens up a world of possibilities. This project lets your Arduino take control of the camera to take photos at regular intervals so they can be reconstructed as a time-lapse movie.

Diane Arbus Diane Arbus (/diːˈæn ˈɑrbəs/; March 14, 1923 – July 26, 1971) was an American photographer and writer noted for black-and-white square photographs of "deviant and marginal people (dwarfs, giants, transgender people, nudists, circus performers) or of people whose normality seems ugly or surreal". Arbus believed that a camera could be "a little bit cold, a little bit harsh" but its scrutiny revealed the truth; the difference between what people wanted others to see and what they really did see – the flaws. A friend said that Arbus said that she was "afraid ... that she would be known simply as 'the photographer of freaks'", and that phrase has been used repeatedly to describe her. Personal life Diane and Allan Arbus separated in 1958, and were divorced in 1969. Photographic career Death Notable photographs Eddie Carmel, Jewish Giant, taken at Home with His Parents in the Bronx, New York, 1970 Arbus's most well-known individual photographs include:

Photoduino | The opensource camera controller based on Arduino 10 of Art History's Most Controversial Photographers [NSFW] In 1971 Norman Mailer said that “giving a camera to Diane Arbus is like putting a live grenade in the hands of a child.” Lo and behold: Child With Hand Grenade. Even before her suicide that year, Arbus’ magnificent body of work evoked criticism and suspicion of exploitation. She was drawn to the so-called deviants, outsiders, marginalized people, glamorous transvestites, graceful giants, disturbed-looking children, circus performers and of course, twins and subjects with other birth eccentricities. Had she lived, Arbus would have been 89 years old today. In tribute, we’d like to present you with this brief survey of some of the most controversial photographers, contemporary and of recent yesteryear. Diane Arbus Arbus was a curious case.
Which…lenses to buy? This has become THE number one question asked to me. “I have xxx amount of dollars or I have xxx camera, which lenses should I buy”? It’s a question that is very difficult to answer, not least because it gets asked 20 times a day. What follows is not the definitive list of lenses to buy. I want to cover other makes of cameras with this evolving blog post but for now it will be purely for Canon lenses. First let us cover the fundamentals of what you need to know about sensor sizes and how your camera will affect which lenses you buy. Currently there is just one solitary Canon that has a full frame sensor for Video and that is the 5DmkII. So the above image is shot with a 14mm L series lens. This is the most important factor you need to think about when buying lenses. That is the biggest issue really. 5Dmk2/7D lens comparison test from Mike Collins on Vimeo. Canon’s premiere line of lenses are the L series. Am i bothered? It is the glass that is your investment, NOT the camera. Zeiss lenses
Time-lapse photography A sunset time-lapse Moving clouds time-lapse Time lapse video of mung bean seeds germinating Time-lapse photography is a technique whereby the frequency at which film frames are captured (the frame rate ) is much lower than that used to view the sequence. Processes that would normally appear subtle to the human eye, e.g. the motion of the sun and stars in the sky, become very pronounced. History [ edit ] Some classic subjects of timelapse photography include: cloudscapes and celestial motion plants growing and flowers opening fruit rotting evolution of a construction project people in the city The technique has been used to photograph crowds, traffic, and even television. The first use of time-lapse photography in a feature film was in Georges Méliès ' motion picture Carrefour De L'Opera (1897). From 1929 to 1931, R. Ott's initial "day-job" career was that of a banker, with time-lapse movie photography, mostly of plants, initially just a hobby. Terminology [ edit ] Blurring vs. exposure times
GettingStarted - CameraAxe The first part of getting started with the Camera Axe is deciding what type of photography you want to do with the Camera Axe and then pick the correct sensors and cables you need to buy to capture those photographs. You can always start with just a few sensors or cables an then add more as you get more experienced with the Camera Axe. All the parts below can be bought at the [Camera Axe Store]. A good starting kit would be the Camera Axe, a flash cable, a camera cable, and one or more sensors. Buying the Camera Axe There are two options when buying a Camera Axe. Buying Flash Cables Most high speed photography is done in a dark room and then the flash is used to light the event being photographed. Buying Camera Cables This is a cable that let's the Camera Axe trigger your camera. Buying Sensors Here are some of the most popular sensors from the Camera Axe store. [Valve Sensor] - This is the best sensor for taking pictures of liquid droplets. Other Resources for Help
The Time-lapse Photography How to Guide - Learn Time-lapse Photography | Learn Time-lapse Photography Hello and welcome to the time-lapse photography how-to guide, an evolving road-map for the evolving art of altered time perception cinematography. This page attempts to weave together separately covered tutorials, tips, and resources into one location that can hopefully act as a launching pad for your own time-lapse experiments and productions. Time discovers truth. -Seneca We’ve come a long way since Occident’s hooves left the ground but time-lapse still requires patience, dedication, and some special tools and know-how in order to get the scene we design in our minds to show up on screen. Outstanding forums: Let’s go ahead and get started: Don’t worry, it’s not nearly as bad as you might think. Stability (or controlled movement) is the most essential component for a time-lapse photographer. What makes a good time-lapse camera? I have broken the external intervalometer world down into 4 segments. Neutral Density (ND) Filters You’ll end up with a shot just like everyone else’s. 1 second Longer
SquareMag Pour beaucoup, la prise de son des vidéos passe par le micro intégré de l’appareil photo ou du caméscope. Un mode privilégié pour capturer des sons indésirables : bruit de mains sur l’appareil, son du stabilisateur, clic des touches… sans parler des défauts habituels. « S qui sifflent trop dans des dialogues, claquements, bruits de toux, applaudissements gênants (…) volume trop bas ou trop élevé » énumère Magix dans son argumentaire. Les outils de correction (cliquer pour agrandir) Tout cela, Video Sound Cleaner se propose de le corriger, directement dans les pistes audios du film, ou dans un fichier son. Ajustement du volume (cliquer pour agrandir) Le logiciel sert à bien d’autres choses : ajuster le volume, corriger la tonalité grâce à un égaliseur paramétrique à quatre bandes ou un égaliseur standard à 10 bandes, travailler la dynamique, l’écho et la réverbération.
