The Century Of The Self 1 of 4 Happiness Machines

BBC documentary about the use of Freud's theories in the use of propaganda to control the masses. Excellent! Freud's nephew, Edward Bernays, and his "public relations" were instrumental in shaping the consumer mindset of the 20th century.

Watchtower of Turkey

Over than 3500 km traveled in 20 days, capturing landscapes from the bluish tones of Pamukkale to the warm ones of Cappadocia, the all passing by a great variation of colors, lights and weathers through six other cities.
I've crossed Cappadocia, Pamukkale, Ephesus, Istanbul, Konya; and tasted baklava, kunefe, doner, the turkish tea; and got the chance to meet the soul of Turkey, its people.. and got their smiles and their hospitality.
This is Turkey lived by me from north to south, and I hope you enjoy it :)

Beautiful Scotland

Over the past 8 or so months I've travelled around Scotland usually getting up at offensively early times to get good light. I wanted to make a film which really shows what a beautiful country Scotland is. Living in Edinburgh we're fortunate to have some truly magnificent sights on our doorstep.

Filming this has been incredible, most of the shots have involved some kind of adventure. From camping on top of Sgurr a’Mhaim as the sun sets, driving overnight to the Old man of Storr on Skye catching the sun rise and stomping through fields chasing the Jacobite Steam Train.

Shot on a DJI Phantom 2 with a Gopro 3+ (with FPV) this little Quadcopter is quite incredible. It allows you to get shots that a helicopter couldn’t even get into. By shooting 2.7k on the Gopro I was able to scale up the footage in a 1920p sequence to get tighter shots, this allowed me to stay within the CAA UAV regulations. The Gopro was shooting mosting on 2.7k Medium or Wide CAMRAW and was graded with speedgrade. Despite it’s size the camera is great as long as there is enough light! Hopefully over the next few months i’ll be upgrading to the DJI s900 which will take a GH4 camera.

I found a great website called Suncalc which projects a chart onto google maps which shows you the angle that the sun will rise from at specific times which was really helpful in planning where to be when. Fortunately the Met Office and MWIS forecasts were pretty spot on so there weren’t too many wasted trips. Walkhighlands.com has been a great resource for researching routes

In the film there are shots from Skye – Quairang, Old man of Storr, Buachaille Etive Mor, Sgurr a’Mhaim – Devil’s Ridge, Ben Nevis, Forth Rail Bridge, Dunbar, Rannoch Moor, Wallace Monument, Edinburgh, Glenfinnan Viaduct, The Kelpies.

Dave Murray: World's Slowest Colour Copier

We hung out with Dave Murray for an afternoon to find out what makes him go. Turns out his unhealthy obsession with bicycles and a penchant for lathed bits of wood makes up a large part of that. Who knew?? His body of work is full of whimsy and physical impossibility along with a healthy sense of humour, but always leaves you with an impression that there’s somehow more to it that you’re immediately taking away. We like that. Stay tuned for more videos in this on-going series of who’s behind the brush.

A tour of the Cube

Dr Mike Page from the University of Hertfordshire takes you on a tour of the Cube, a 3x3x3m eco-home in which one person can live with a minimum impact on the environment. Shot by Allan MacDonald at the Edinburgh International Science Festival, April 2011. Please note: The bed is 4ft wide, not 4ft long; and I forgot to mention the combination-microwave oven, largely because I left it in Hatfield.

Light Barrier, 2014

Kimchi and Chips create phantoms of light in the air, crossing millions of calibrated beams with their work . The light installation creates floating graphic objects which animate through space as they do through time.

kimchiandchips.com/#lightbarrier

A fascination with natural light drove the technique of the impressionist painters, they explored new qualities of colour and the trail of time. Kimchi and Chips' study of digital light discusses a new visual mechanic, their installation adding to the visual language of space and light. As the artist's inquiry deepens, brush strokes become descriptive like code, detailing reality and allying light with canvas.

Light Barrier was co-commissioned by FutureEverything and the British Council. It premiered at New Media Night Festival, Nikola-Lenivets 4–6 June 2014.

This system creates truly volumetric projections which can define 3 dimensional forms in space, in contrast to 'hologram' screens and fog screens which create planar images.

I Had Too Much To Dream Last Night

Deus ex Machina in collaboration with Raen are super stoked to present the latest occular extraviganza, ‘I HAD TOO MUCH TO DREAM LAST NIGHT’.

To give you the good oil, the movie follows the simplistic travels of two surfers, meeting friends along the way, on an open ended journey across an archipelago littered with islands and breaks. Connected by ribbons of tarmac and separated by deep ocean valleys these islands have been here for millennia and will continue to do so for millennia to come. An veritable eden for waves of every nature, from long reeling glassy points breaks to sketchy urchin infested waves in the middle of nowhere.

Hey, Little Guy

I recently bought an infrared-converted camera and was walking around Johns Hopkins campus when I saw this raccoon. I shot this quick photo with my infrared camera, but he ran off by the time I could grab my 7D and telephoto lens.

The Milky Way

geekyrocketguy posted a photo:

The Milky Way

I recently shot this, with help from Michael Relich, from the parking lot of the famous Horseshoe Bend lookout near Page, AZ.

We took 6 1-minute exposures at ISO 3200 and f/2.8 on a Sigma 50mm f/1.4. The camera was mounted on a telescope tracking mount, which helped to minimize star trails in the image. I aligned and averaged the six exposures in Photoshop to reduce noise, and then made various contrast, saturation, and white balance adjustments. This is definitely my best Milky Way image to date.

Classic Mauna Kea

geekyrocketguy posted a photo:

Classic Mauna Kea

After more than a year of effort, I finally was granted a commercial film permit for Mauna Kea. Therefore I can finally legally sell this image, and various other recent ones I haven't posted yet. Also, if you need someone to film timelapse for you on the summit, I've taken care of the paperwork for you already and am available for hire. :-D

This image is taken from the true summit and includes (from left to right) the University of Hawaii 2.2 meter telescope, Gemini, and the Canada France Hawaii Telescope. It is a stack of 16 8-minute exposures, for a total exposure time of just over 2 hours. The color gradient of the sky is (I think) due to air glow.

Sunset on Mauna Kea

geekyrocketguy posted a photo:

Sunset on Mauna Kea

Mauna Kea rises above the clouds as the final light of the day creeps up the mountain.

This image was taken from Mauna Loa, over 25 miles away. It is a panorama stitched from 17 vertical images, each taken at a focal length of 420mm (300mm f/2.8L + 1.4x extender). If printed at 300 DPI, the print would be over 8 feet long. Even at 100%, it is extremely sharp! In addition to great detail of the observatories, the crowds watching the sunset are visible on the summit. A few people are visible atop the Pu'u near the visitor center, and a cars are visible on the summit road.

I posted a 13 MB full-resolution version at www.sgphotos.com/filedump/maunakeasunsetpano.jpg. Sorry for the watermark, but it's necessary...

The Matterhorn (German), Cervino (Italian) or Cervin (French), is a mountain in the Pennine Alps. With its 4,478 metres (14,692 ft) high summit, lying on the border between Switzerland and Italy, it is one of the highest peaks in the Alps and its 1,200 metres (3,937 ft) north face is one of the Great north faces of the Alps.

The individual pieces of the chocolate bar Toblerone are claimed by its maker Kraft to be formed in the likeness of the Matterhorn.

Zermatt (French: Praborgne) is a municipality in the district of Visp in the German-speaking section of the canton of Valais in Switzerland.

It is located at the northern base of the Matterhorn in the Pennine Alps, about 10 km from the border with Italy.

Zermatt has a permanent population of around 5,500 people, although the actual population varies considerably through the seasons as tourists come and go. The village is situated at the end of Mattertal, a north-facing valley, at an altitude of 1,620m (5,315ft). The valley is a dead end; although the border with Italy is close, it cannot be crossed by road, as it traverses a glacier at an altitude of over 3,000m. Zermatt is the starting point of the Patrouille des Glaciers and the Haute Route.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matterhorn
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zermatt

The Alps (French: Alpes; German: Alpen; Italian: Alpi; Romansh: Alps; Slovene: Alpe) is the name for one of the great mountain range systems of Europe, stretching from Austria and Slovenia in the east, through Italy, Switzerland, Liechtenstein and Germany to France in the west. The word "Alps" was taken via French from Latin Alpes (meaning "the Alps"), which may be influenced by the Latin words albus (white) or altus (high) or more likely a Latin rendering of a Celtic or Ligurian original.

The highest mountain in the Alps is Mont Blanc, at 4,808 metres (15,774 ft), on the Italian-French border. All the main peaks of the Alps can be found in the list of mountains of the Alps and list of Alpine peaks by prominence.

The Alps are generally divided into the Western Alps and the Eastern Alps. The division is along the line between Lake Constance and Lake Como, following the Rhine. The Western Alps are higher, but their central chain is shorter and curved; they are located in Italy, France and Switzerland. The Eastern Alps (main ridge system elongated and broad) belong to Austria, Germany, Italy, Liechtenstein, Slovenia and Switzerland.

The Alps are a classic example of what happens when a temperate area at lower altitude gives way to higher elevation terrain. Elevations around the world which have cold climates similar to those found in polar areas have been called alpine. A rise from sea level into the upper regions of the atmosphere causes the temperature to decrease. The effect of mountain chains on prevailing winds is to carry warm air belonging to the lower region into an upper zone, where it expands in volume at the cost of a proportionate loss of heat, often accompanied by the precipitation of moisture in the form of snow or rain.

Highlanders afloat

Highlanders afloat

Loch Etive is one of the most unique sea lochs in the UK. It is approx. 20 miles from the head of the loch to Connel Bridge, where it joins the Firth of Lorn forming the spectacular Falls of Lora, the only two-way tidal falls in Europe. Due to the two sets of narrows, at Bonawe and Connel, the loch has an extraordinary tidal system which gives a two hour difference between high water at Connel, and Bonawe, a distance of only 5 miles. This also has an effect on the salt content in the water - the surface layer of the water at the head of the loch can be almost fresh. The loch is over 400ft deep in places.


As you can imagine this environment attracts a very wide range of fish. It is one of the few places we have encountered where you can catch brown trout and pollack on the same tackle at the same mark! It is a good place to catch a wide range of species and it is relatively easy to catch half a dozen different types of fish in one session.

213/365
So yesterday my power went out the entire day, and it was over 100 degrees so my house turned into a sauna. My camera battery was dead and I couldn't use my computer so I had no photo. On a happier note, I was Vogue Italia's photo of the day!! I was really excited to see my photo big on the front page.

Today, a friend and I were driving to an abandoned house when we saw this plane in a field surrounded by abandoned barns. The weird things we find in rural Illinois... I had a smoke bomb, so I used it in this. We ended up not going to the abandoned house since we were running low on time. This photo is huge, it's like 12,000 x 8,500px, and I had to crop parts off because I looked too small haha. I would definitely suggest that you view it large on black.

I leave for my trip in 2 days!!

More of the rather intriguing umbrellas held up in the park as part of the Whitworth Park Weekender, heading towards Oxford Road.

Looking up from the paths in Whitworth Park, the umbrellas certainly made for an interesting sight!

Love the cerise pink and purple ones up top but lots of splashes of colour to brighten up anyone's day.

The classic view, imo, from Mellbreak, well worth a visit in a more photogenic season and better light than here.
