Cool Stuff – November 22, 2011Cool Stuff
Welcome to Cool Stuff, a weekly feature where we post our favorite links from the past week, including our favorite articles and how-tos, videos, images and more.
- Okay, this was published a while back, but I don’t think we’ve mentioned this yet, so here it is: one of our favorite timelapses.
Landscapes: Volume Two from Dustin Farrell on Vimeo.
- For all you retro film buffs out there, Photojojo has your Twin Lens Reflex fix. It doesn’t get any cooler than showing up for your next film-photographer’s photowalk with your very own DIY TLR camera.
- Speaking of retro, how’s this for DIY: a digital Lomography-style camera made from the guts of a crappy Vivitar digicam and an old Olympus lens.
- And, while we’re on the topic of new cameras, Nikonians rejoice! D800 pics and specs leaked, courtesy of (who else) Nikonrumors.com.
- People continue to push the boundaries of what’s considered photography. Aaron Hobson takes Google Street View photographs and converts them to fine art pieces. Some of them, I have to say, are pretty darn good.
- They say audio is at least 50% of any motion picture experience. This piece from Oliviatech.com is a useful insight into audio capture.
- Don’t like your day job? Neither did Ansel Adams, so you’re in good company. He felt his commercial work was cutting into his art too.
- Wanna learn how to freeze liquids with light instead of a freezer? Check out this new site from Alex Koloskov. Amazing stuff, especially when you consider how much he likes to achieve in-camera.
- It really is the photographer, not the camera – and Annie Leibovitz adds to that sentiment. Her favorite snapshot camera – the iPhone.
- And last, but not least, images of Fuji’s upcoming interchangeable lens camera have been leaked. Fujians, it’s your (our) turn to rejoice.
