Eva and I collaborated this past weekend to create this short video.

Still images were taken at 5 second intervals with a Nikon D300s, then imported into and edited with Aperture 3. They were then exported using the Aperture 3 plugin Border FX. Still images were then imported into Final Cut Pro at 1/28th second duration and placed into timeline to create time lapse motion. Eva’s piano playing was captured using a Zoom H4n Handy Recorder and edited with the freeware app Audacity. Paul Bagnulo at 7t created logo and digital graphics.

Google Image Search

June 21, 2011 1 comment

Google has changed the game again…now it is possible to search the internet for a specific image, be it one you find online, one on your computer…whatev. This is a very user friendly (though potentially time consuming) tool for photographers who want to see where their images are being used…with, or without permission. It is super easy to use, just go to¬† and test it out.

I found that the easiest way to use it was to download the Firefox Extension so that I can right click on any image to see where it is presently being used on the internet.

Many thanks to Ira Gerlich and Ian Coble for the heads up on this new feature.

Stars over Les Drus – Weymuller Photography

April 7, 2011 Leave a comment

OK, it is 4:30 AM here….but I just finished the process of capturing and editing this image, and I couldn’t wait until morning (or more accurately; daylight) to share it. Amazing night sky with no moon here in Chamonix, France. Once I get up to Spitsbergen there won’t be anything remotely close to this for 9 days.

1 hour exposure
f 2.8
ISO 100

It took my camera (Nikon D300s) almost an hour to process the data into a single file. Even with an external battery pack (that holds 8 AA rechargeable batteries) I nearly ran out of juice while it crunched the image.
