What an awesome tranquil picture. Always love landscape photos when taken in over cast conditions. Seems to make details stand out more. Also with the bright boat completely framed in the still water first catching your eye then being led to the hills in the background. It all just works.
Also a landscape in portrait orientation…
Whited out skys, endless snow fields with dark forests to chop up the pictures. Wonderful set of high contrast pictures. Great way to simplify pictures.

Just to remind people about the response from the petition to stop trying to legalise selling of “orphaned work”.
We said people would just grab art work, strip out metadata/watermarks then claim they can’t find the copyright owner. They responded with “it is illegal to remove watermarks/metadata. Therefore it isn’t a problem”.
Well I still think it is. People could still steal the work and then claim “oh I must have done it by accident?”. What would happen to them? Claim back all the money they made from it anyway? I don’t believe it.
Because of this response they now want 100,000 signatures before they’ll look at it again.
Such an excellent use of wide angle here. Usually it can be difficult to filter out unwanted elements in a picture with a wide angle lens but this picture really does it. Simply pointing upwards manages to really reduce the affect of the crowd. Also note the expression on the speaker’s face and the energetic thrusting of the megaphone into the centre of the picture.
I found this picture while trawling for a Creative Commons licensed picture for use on my latest music demo Revolution Fading. I found this picture through it and thought it was perfect for the song. Naturally I made sure all credit went to the photographer but I’d thought I’d do one better and put a post on my photography Tumblr about it as well.
Incredible looking music video using the Matrix bullet time effect… but with film! Absolute chilling to watch. Watch the music video first (link below).
Talk about ambitious.
Director duo Bison shot Matrix-y scenes for a music video using 625 pinhole cameras — all on a single strip of 35mm film! Watch the video to see just how precise it gets.
Also, here’s the music video in its entirety.
Bullet Rig Made with 600+ Pinhole Cameras
The Wellington Hotel celebrated it’s fifth anniversary of open mic nights today. A packed evening full of musicians came down. Some of them haven’t been for a while. Hat’s off to John Cruickshank (who funnily enough was the only one wearing a hat) for putting on the night.
This night was also a debut for a new song called “Uncharted Waters”. One of the better first performances of a song I’ve had.
Note the top photograph was taken by John Cruickshank and not me.
Exit State’s first gig at Ramapage along with another debut with “The Saviours”. A strange choice with Hello Bamboo to kick off the start to a hilarious intro. Well… they’ve got to play with someone I guess.
I was a bit careless this gig. Unlike the previous gig where I was testing a new camera. This time I was just using my old familiar equipment and so I didn’t bother being too careful about being steady. I’m sure a few more shots would have come out sharper if I really tried. Oh well that’s punishment for being lazy.
New legislation trying to be pushed through that could make it easier for your work to become “non-copyrighted”. Please sign the petition to get it stopped.
I’ve just recently acquired a Nikon F75 35mm film camera. It seems weird using a camera that is only a couple of years older than my D60 yet is film and has more features than my D60. Even though I use manual exposure 99% of the time I really did miss auto focus though. Sometimes auto focus can be a pain but for even time manual focus saves the day there’s ten times where it’s a pain.
I first went for a little jaunt nearby in the lovely evening and took some urban photos there. After that I went to Rampage in Roper Hall and took some gig photos.
Looks like first impressions of this camera are very promising. Certainly keep it around.
