Wow, I had no idea my eyes were so buggy, my nose so big. And where did that scar come from? Still, I like this. Thanks

Tutorial: Building a Smaller 1st Person GoPro Hiking Rig

Tutorial: Building a Smaller 1st Person GoPro Hiking Rig

This is a follow-0n post to our previous tutorial. The rig works well on wide open trails but is a little awkward getting in and out of the car, and is a total nightmare when trying to use it in overgrown forests and other ‘tight’ spaces. So, we redesigned it! […]

RAW Artists: San Jose – a night in 2 mins

As you know RAW were kind enough to invite us to exhibit some of our more unusual images at their latest show in downtown San Jose. The evening was a blast. To celebrate the event we decided to make a video of the entire evening from set-up to take-down. Unfortunately […]

Ready to Hike

Tutorial: Building a 1st person backpacking GoPro rig

We’re off up a big mountain soon and figured it would be cool to film the whole process. The hike should take 3 days so there’s no point making a movie, instead stop motion is required. We’re going to carry two cameras for this, one pointing where we’re going, the […]

Tutorial: Turning Star Trails into Comets (with Twinkles!)

Star trails can get boring. Let’s make twinkling comets! But first here’s a story for you. Back in the day, in darkest Winter, the Rangers at Yosemite National Park used to build a big fire on top of Glacier Point and when it was good & hot, they’d push it […]

Experience PhotoshopScaresMe Live!

Well this is new, PhotoshopScaresMe is getting its first live show. We don’t know the details yet but we’re guessing they don’t want to see our boring travel / nature / people photos, they want our burning stuff. The presses are currently running hot as we print out on large […]

Russell Brown's Image Processor Pro

New Version: Russell Brown’s Image Processor Pro

We love Russell Brown‘s Image Processor Pro. (But our version is better) Russell works for Adobe and has delivered some amazing scripts that make the sort of thing we do here a lot easier. We rely heavily on his Stack-O-Matic and equally so on his Image Processor Pro. You can […]

Yosemite Elves and Sprites (light painting in the forest)

As you saw in our last post, we recently visited Yosemite. We did this in part to capture the stars but also to hunt down the mythical forest-dwellers that spin light in to art. Without comment, here’s 4 of their attempts. A tutorial might follow. Depends how they’re feeling.

The Best Vernal Falls Photo Ever

“The Best Damn Vernal Falls Photo In The World”

There’s quotes around the title. That means someone said it. That means it’s true. Ego much? 🙂 This time of the year there’s very little water in Yosemite National Park. The snows have not yet settled. Last year’s Winter was mild. Everything is as dry as a bone. And of […]

[updated] Nikon Needs to Fire someone Part 2

I’ve posted before about how I’d fire someone at Nikon given half the chance because their product lineup makes no sense. Thanks to Nikon Rumors, I now have even more evidence that they’re nuts over there. The above picture shows how their camera range is laid out. Makes perfect sense […]

Burning Jeep

Burning Jeep and the Milky Way at Crater Lake

Here’s our crazy idea. Let’s take a picture that’s never before been done. We’ll start with photographing the entire visible Milky Way, from the bit where it hits the Earth in the south, arcing all the way over to the bit where it hits the Earth in the north (bloody […]

3 Weeks in Alaska

Hey, so we’ve been quiet for a while. Sorry about that but to mis-quote Douglas Adams, all sorts of things kept cropping up. One of which is that we spent 3 weeks in Alaska and Vancouver. There’s no tutorial here, and no ‘family’ photos. We’ve hundreds of shots that we’ll […]
