  • Drilling through light

    Drilling through light, a photo by stst31415 on Flickr. It is Monday, autumn and I shoot a macro again. Today’s topic in macro monday is metal – so I chose a drill. And I drilled for light because this was the strangest thing ever I had to light. Whatever you do, you have to live […]

  • Lined paper

    Lined paper, a photo by stst31415 on Flickr. I tried to shoot another macro but wanted to use a different light. A bunch of paper was used – you can see the edges and lines of the paper. A white LED was the light source from the left and a laser pointer was used from […]

  • Now winter can come

    Now winter can come, a photo by stst31415 on Flickr. I found these guys when taking a walk on the weekend. as there is a lot of details in this picture I tried to shift the focus to front section. So I added brightness to the top left corner to enhance the flare and reduced […]

  • The burning match

    I was looking for some projects I can take inside. One of the things I always wanted to do was a burning match macro. The setup was as follows: I used a Canon EF-S 18-55mm lens on a retro adapter on a Canon 60D. In the shot it was 25mm. 2 flashlights directed at the […]

  • Autumn power

    Autumn power, a photo by stst31415 on Flickr. I always wanted to try the “indian summer” Color filter. Obviously one has to wait for autumn. Here it is. I played with Nik Color Efex: Indian Summer and then some tonal contrast to emphasize the lines in the leaves.

  • A roman villa

    A roman villa, a photo by stst31415 on Flickr. On our trip to “Blood for blood” we met this restaurated remains of a roman villa. And I cannot drive by any ruins without stopping… The trusted Magic Lantern took 9 exposures and I used 7.

  • DOF dice Test with Revuenon 55mm 1:1.4

    DOF dice Test with Revuenon 55mm 1:1.4, a photo by stst31415 on Flickr. Still trying to master the 1.4 with manual focusing on my 60D. It seems bad to focus with the liveview. I have seen some good shots and some bad ones but it still hits me like a hammer how shallow DOF can […]

  • The virtual dolly – time lapse next gen

    I finally made my proof of concept: By using Blender I made a time lapse video and applied some virtual dolly movement. Meaning, that the camera is moving across the picture. This is possible due to the bigger than full HD video source made from the single picture recorded with the Canon Powershot S95. A […]

  • Digital Crossprocessing

    Chaos made of lines, a photo by stst31415 on Flickr. As one doesn’t have theoption to do digital crossprocessing I thought, why not develop a RAW in color and monochrome? I blended the two pictures and the result was quite crossprocessed.

  • Lessons learned from Timelapsing with the CHDK

    I wrote earlier on about my contact with CHDK and how I tried to do some time lapses. I was fascinated how easy this technique is and how powerful the visualizations are. I had my first failures and I did some of them again. I will return to this point at the end.
