Love this idea. Throw the ball in the air and it takes a 360 shot when it reaches the highest point. Wouldn’t it be great to see this technology inside a football as a live stream during the game.
Nex-3 and the Nex-5 both look amazing, sound amazing and hopefully they take amazing shots. Here’s the lowdown:
DSLR-style quality and shooting responses: compact and easy to use with interchangeable lenses.14.2 megapixels Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor, HD 1080i movie, 7.5cm LCD, Sweep Panorama. 16mm lens.
Does anyone own one? Anyone from Sony want to send me one to test?
Hamburg-based photographer Patrick Runte recreates scenes from classic videos games in his Jump ‘n’ Run series. Pacman, Space Invaders, Pong, and more are all composed in real life situations where Runte has set up beautiful (and accurate!) depictions of the video games. Runte offers the following explanation: “The work is inspired by Oskar Schlemmer and his idea of the ‘Triadic Ballett’ and the term ‘Streetplay’”, Runte explains. “I wanted to compile old video games, which are based on simple geometric forms and make them able to be experienced / felt by the human body.”

Have you ever stood in the exact spot that millions have stood before taking the exact photo of the exact view that millions have taken before I wondered “why am I doing this?”
I have taken this shot* of the Sydney Harbour Bridge…
…and this shot* of the Taj Mahal…
…but last year I specifically did not take this shot* of Hong Kong from the Peak because I realised I could just Google it later.
Does this make me lazy or just practical? 🙂
*These layered images were grabbed from Flickr and put together in Photoshop. Each is a composite of about 5 images taken from the same location by different people.

It will showcase the city as a major creative hub in the Asia-Pacific region, celebrating the diversity of Sydney’s creative industries.
Vivid Sydney features four exciting new events:

– Fire Water
This from WebDesignerWall back in September but worth noting – cool collection of sites with large background images flowing into the foreground. Good inspiration for designers trapped inside boxes. Thanks to Jono for the find.
Inspired by the amazing street project Little People Blog, but don’t quite have the time to hand-craft tiny people? Well, Tilt-Shift Maker has a quicker, easier, and surprisingly effective alternative.
Tilt-shift refers to a photographic technique whereby a camera lens is tilted relative to the image plane and combined with a large aperture to create a shallow depth of field. The end result is a real photograph that looks like a scene created of miniature models. Tilt-Shift Maker is a web service that transforms existing digital images into tilt-shift style miniatures, and the result can be surprisingly effective. Head over to the site, upload an image, select a focus area and bam – your ‘miniaturised’ image is ready to go.
Here’s a mini Bondi Beach I’ve just whipped up:
Check out the Tilt Shift Maker site for some other fantastic examples.
i found this post of pics that look like they have been photoshopped but supposedly they aren’t. Now i can’t proof that but some of these shots are just amazing.
There a plenty more to look at here.
www.scrapblog.com : I’ve seen a lot of browser based flash ‘applications’ over the years – you know trying to emulate the desktop experience inside a web page… but few have cut the mustard. They tend to be slow, clunky, buggy and miss out on the detail such as keyboard shortcuts. Scrapblog (which you use to put photo albums together) is an exception to the norm and is really quite outstanding. Even CTRL-Z (undo) worked. Go play. Then you can order a 20 page hardback version for about US$35. Pretty good deal we thought.
