Founded by sculpture/fashion graduate Jamie Raap and Henrik Mauler with a background in engineering/architecture, Zeitguised combines their common interest of digital surrealism in a world full of realities.
Here comes some amazing arthropod photography by macrophotographer Thomas Shahan. Based in Oklahoma, US, Thomas has been taking portraitures of tiny wildly-beautiful beasts since 2007. His work has been featured in leading magazines and TV shows around the world. With a BFA in printmaking from the University of Oklahoma, he spends his spare time wandering in the wilderness finding his subjects and waiting patiently for the perfect moment to snap.
The video below is an introduction to high-magnification macro photography by Thomas Shahan offering an innovative approach and what it takes to become a successful photographer.
The goal for the project was to show the P12’s aerodynamic qualities in a whole new light, without actually having physical access to the car itself. Light painting has been around for decades but has never been put into full motion. Until now.
Working with McLaren we were able to process their wind tunnel airflow data and score out paths for individual trails of light. Each frame was then sliced into 650 frames that represent depths of 3D space and a plasma screen, mounted on a motion control rig, was used as a 3D light printer to play back the 650 slices as it moved through the space. We then repeated the move a thousand times for each frame of the animation and with each frame the camera, mounted on another motion control rig, moved a few millimeters so that over the course of the shoot we were able to create the effect of a moving camera.
The finished film merges photography, animation and sculpture and is a truly unique way of representing aerodynamics that we feel justly celebrates this astonishing car.
