More London…

Under - Art, Inspiration, My Musings, Photography, Photolog

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.

You can view the complete set at Flickr.

3D video capture with Kinect

Under - Industrial Design, Inspiration, Technology

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.

Idiot with a Tripod

Under - Art, Inspiration, Media, Photography

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.

Nomad Brush for the iPad

Under - Art, Illustration, Industrial Design, Technology

This appears to be something that I had been waiting for but the video and the website do not provide enough information to address all your questions. It sure is a unique artist paintbrush stylus for the iPad made with a long handle and soft bristles, but is it pressure sensitive? Is it going to work with all those paint and sketch apps out there or would come with it’s own?

The information is very sketchy and I see a slight lag in response (may be just me!) in that three seconds demo shown in the video above. Available February 2011 so meanwhile enjoy this and yes, I hope Wacom is going to wake up soon.

Liz Rusby – nature, beauty and romance

Under - Art, Inspiration, Nature, Photography

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.
