Egypt and Lebanon montage by Khalid Mohtaseb.
This is a montage of footage a few friends and I shot for a Documentary during the summer/fall of 2009.
The documentary was shot entirely on the canon 5D MKll in and around Cairo and Beirut. Big ups to Magic Lanterns Firmware update, as well as the Kessler Pocket Dolly for being a huge help in making this happen.
Lucid, dreamy and vibrant illustrations reflect the enticing inner world of highly regarded artist, Daniel Egnéus. With no formal education except for life itself, Daniel sees everyday life and art as one inseparable whole.
He is the inventor of the style called “Quotidiano-Straordinario” and his work is an expression of his colorful and rich life in Milano and Rome, filled with friends and a wonderful girlfriend, and not least his daydreaming, which finds its way into his work, inspiring us with its beauty and depth.
Born in 1972 in Sweden, Daniel has spent 20 years in Prague, London, Berlin, Bologna and Rome, and has now made Milano his base. A prolific artist, he has had successful collaborations with clients such as Haagen-Dasz, BMW, Pepsi Cola, Marie Claire, Time Magazine and Penguin Books to name a few.
Julia Wang is a 16 year old bokeh, life, and color obsessed artist who enjoys dabbling in the surreal and soft qualities of light. Living in a small town in New Jersey, this young artist has a dream and lifelong passion to travel the world and document the lives of people, culture, and diversity.
I picked up my first DSLR in January of 2009 and I am head over heels in love. I would consider myself self taught, seeing as I’ve never taken a photography course. The internet is my teacher, my friend, my inspiration. A lot of people like to call themselves visionaries with unique visions of beauty, but I just call myself just a regular girl with a passion for taking photos of life on Earth and the people I love.
Obtaining seed money to launch a business has always been challenging, but, with a crowdfunding platform like Kickstarter things are changing. Founded by Yancey Strickler and Perry Chen, this New York based company helps people realize their creative dreams and ambitious endeavors.
Kickstarter is the largest funding platform for creative projects in the world. Every month, tens of thousands of amazing people pledge millions of dollars to projects from the worlds of music, film, art, technology, design, food, publishing and other creative fields.
A new form of commerce and patronage. This is not about investment or lending. Project creators keep 100% ownership and control over their work. Instead, they offer products and experiences that are unique to each project.
All or nothing funding. On Kickstarter, a project must reach its funding goal before time runs out or no money changes hands. Why? It protects everyone involved. Creators aren’t expected to develop their project without necessary funds, and it allows anyone to test concepts without risk.
A top-up to my existing London photography collection … mostly in colors this time. Those of you who have explored London would know how beautiful the hour-long walk is from Westminster Bridge till Tower Bridge or the other way round. There’s so much to capture that I wouldn’t be wrong to call it one of the most photographed part of London. There are also ferry services that operate in-between these two bridges providing another view of the same stretch.

Oliver Kreylos hacked Kinect and reverse engineered it to produce 3D video – nice!
The Kinect is an accessory for Microsoft’s Xbox game console. It contains an array of microphones, an active-sensing depth camera using structured light, and a color camera. The Kinect is intended to be used as a controller-free game controller, tracking the body or bodies of one or more players in its field of view.
The motivation for this project was to convert the Kinect into a 3D camera by combining the depth and color image streams received from the device, and projecting them back out into 3D space in such a way that real 3D objects inside the cameras’ field of view are recreated virtually, at their proper sizes
By combining the color and the depth image captured by the Microsoft Kinect, one can project the color image back out into space and create a “holographic” representation of the persons or objects that were captured.
An extraordinary film by Jamie Stuart. Not only is it a wonderful evocation of Dziga Vertov’s 1929 silent film “Man With a Movie Camera”, but consider that it was photographed during the blizzard of 2010 (NYC) and edited at lightning speed.
Spring’s here! something that Liz Rusby’s photography brought to this blog. From soft pastel colors to overall engaging compositions, each image is very creatively captured with its own unique and emotional touch. Liz’s photography feels dreamy yet realistic and is powerful enough to make you search for some poetry.
Liz Rusby currently lives in the San Francisco Bay area and works as a photographer for a local boutique real estate company. She started out photography as a passionate hobby that has grown into a profession.
I am a self taught photographer, inspired by the romance and beauty of nature and drawn to the quiet moments of everyday life.
For work I use a Canon 40D with a 10-22mm & 17-70mm lens, for play I love prime lenses, the 30mm f/1.4, 50mm f/1.8 & 100mm f/2.8.
