Hi My Name Is Tyler, And IAMA Nikon DSLR

Wed October 26, 2011

Fully Functional Camera Costume from Tyler Card on Vimeo.

This Halloween costume is different from all the other costumes you may have ever seen or worn through the years. This is a camera costume. What makes it different is that it works! Push the shutter release button and the camera fires the flash, takes a picture, and displays the image on the LCD on the back. It will even wirelessly fire Alienbees strobes.

My name is Tyler and IAMA Nikon DSLR.

And here’s the Behind the Scenes:

Ninja Stop Motion Video

Sat October 15, 2011

Ninja from Olivier Trudeau on Vimeo.

Ninja is a short stop motion film about an old fashioned ninja duel animated by Olivier Trudeau and music by Tan Dun & Yo-Yo Ma. Dolls are used but the action is so smooth you may think they’re live actors.

Father and Baby

Tue September 27, 2011


From senencito

Pianist Colin Huggins played at the Washington Square Park, regaling the public with a beautiful musical piece. A father started dancing to the nusic with his baby. It’s an adorable spectacle as father and baby twirled in perfect tempo to the music. Probably good to remember to not overdo the twirling or risk ending up with one very dizzy baby.

Photographers Photographed

Tue September 27, 2011

Photographers are sometimes ideal subjects for your photography especially those who adopt all kinds of positions in the search for that perfect composition. They bend, kneel, squat, climb monuments and even lie down flat on the ground.

Photographers, don’t use these hand gestures!

Sun September 25, 2011

Thumbs up! usually means good work, right on, you got it right, and is generally a sign of approval. But not in Greece, Latin America, Middle East, Russia, Sardinia and Western Africa, where it’s a rude hand gesture.

UTexas @ Austin alumni better not use the “Hook ‘em Horns” gesture in Greece, Latin America, Middle East, Russia, Sardinia and in some parts of Western Africa where it sends a definitively offensive signal.

These and many other hand signals can be a minefield for photographers who travel the world or even use models who have immigrated from other countries. And, if you travel to other countries and see hand gestures that appear offensive to you, before you react in anger, bear in mind that maybe they’re not in that particular country.

Playful horsing around -- or subliminally rude hand gestures?

See what commonly used hand gestures in North America mean in other countries (and what these two above may be really saying to one another): theAtlantic.

Will the person in a dirigible who lost a zoom lens — and left a hole in my roof — please call

Mon September 19, 2011

The Canon zoom lens must have been dropped from a dirigible, small airplane or helicopter from a high altitude, high enough for the lens to fall at terminal velocity (200+ mph) and made a 6-in. hole in a Califirnia woman’s hanging roof. Thankfully (for the woman, the photographer and, I guess, for Canon), the lens did not hit anyone on the ground.

Planet Tatooine Found

Fri September 16, 2011

Learn about the alien planet Kepler-16b that resembles Luke Skywalker's home world Tatooine in this SPACE.com infographic.
Source: SPACE.com: All about our solar system, outer space and exploration

There must be some credence to Men in Black’s suggestion that most of the wildly successful people in our midst are actually aliens in disguise. How else can you explain that George Lucas of Star Wars movie fame knew that there could be such a thing as a planet that revolves around two suns, like Tatooine does? This is even more interesting because when Tatooine was depicted in Stars Wars, many scientists doubted that such planets could really exist. Lucas knew something they didn’t, eh?

This planet, dubbed Kepler-16(AB)-b, is about 3/4 of the distance between the Earth and our sun, is Saturn-sized, and travels on a nearly circular 229-day orbit around its two parent stars, Kepler-16A and Kepler-16B. The suns themselves orbit close to each other, completing an orbit around each other every 41 days.
