Watching You Watch Me

Taking pictures of people in public is not illegal, but what if it’s taken behind a one-way mirror as they watch themselves in it — and they don’t know they are being photographed and will be published? It does not help that the pictures taken and published are not necessarily the most flattering either. Photographer Moa Karlberg wants to engage others in conversation and debate about this issue.

To advertise the tough quality of the Optio WG-1 camera, Pentax created this whimsical video where the camera travels from one scene to the next, one photogaph to the next. How was it made? Hint: the green screen figured prominently.

And here is the behind the scenes:

Cookie Splash Behind The Scenes

Fri May 27, 2011

Cookie splash from De Vetpan Studios on Vimeo.

Siebe Warmoeskerken has some beautiful pictures of various splashing liquid in cups over at his Cookie Splash series on Flickr. This Behind the Scenes video documents how he did it.

The basic setup are:

  • Manually focus on the cup and ensure you’re including enough space above and to the sides to capture the whole splash and some other interesting tidbits, like scrumptious cookies
  • Set your DSLR to Continuous Shooting (Burst) using a shutter speed fast enough to freeze the action (start with 1/500 sec.)
  • If you want to isolate the cup from the background, use a large aperture (say f/1.8, adjust ISO as required)

Drawing Machine Takes Inspiration From Pictures

Fri May 27, 2011

Harvey Moon’s Drawing Machine takes any B&W JPEG image as an input and then decides how to best draw it. The art may take a couple of weeks to a month to complete and each drawing based on the same photo always comes out unique.

Stolen Camera Finder

Fri May 27, 2011

Featured Site: Stelen Camera Finder

Featured Site: Stelen Camera Finder

If you lost your camera — as in someone stole it — what is the chance of getting it back? And how could you?

The idea behind our Featured Site, Stolen Camera Finder, is simple enough: upload a picture taken from the camera and the site will extract the camera’s serial number from the photo’s metadata (EXIF Info). No picture? That’s fine as long as you have the camera’s serial number. It then searches through its database to see if it can find a picture with the same serial number embedded in its metadata. If it does, you’ve found the person who’s now using your camera. If not, you can submit a stolen camera report and they’ll do a Web crawl to search for it.

There are a number of problems with this scheme:

  1. Not every camera saves its serial number in the metadata
  2. The thief may not upload any picture to the Web
  3. The thief may upload processed pictures to the Web that may have had the metadata removed
  4. The person who is now using your camera may have purchased it from someone else and is not necessarily your thief (though it’s still stolen goods and need to be returned)

I am not sure how well it works because I just dragged a picture from my latest camera review and, though it extracted the EXIF Info and serial number, it did not find this site displaying lots of other pictures taken from same camera. The search took a fraction of a second so I don’t believe it actually went and scoured the Web. I would guess the database is not extensive enough or up-to-date. The idea is great and I hope the author gets some venture capital backing to push this further. Sounds like something our friends over at Mountain View may be interested in?
