My Perspective of Photography

A 100 hundred word introductory text written for a Regional Nikon Event.  It rose the usual controversy, many of the readers who encountered it, either valued the approach or refused it totally. Here it is in both a short  and expanded version. It is open to discussion. Continue reading

Machining a Pinhole-Timelapse Added

While making enhancements to the “Sohdo” Long time-lapse device at Innovo, while 3d-printing a camera mount for final pre-production refinements. We had a little time. A friend there was showing me a new PCB milling machine, and I saw that it had very thin drill bits; the thinnest was 0.3mm (300 microns). So I had the idea of doing a “clean” pinhole. So we followed these steps. Continue reading

11 Odd Items I Use in Timelapse

On one of some old papers fetched, I had written: “Creativity, in most of the times is about re-questioning the “conventional” functionality

In this incremental article,I will post about 11 odd items that i used or still use in timelapse photography.

PETAPIXEL:Check Out What Happens When the $6,000 Nikon D4 is Left Exposed in a Storm

Modern flagship DSLRs are generally designed to be extremely weather and water resistent, but it’s still not a good idea to leave them exposed for a long period of time to anything more than a light drizzle. What happens, though, if you do?

Lebanese photographer Alexy Joffre Frangieh found out for all of us yesterday after his $6,000 Nikon D4 was left in a storm for over 16 hours. Continue reading

Persistance – Kinetic Artwork

“Persistance” is a Kinetic Artwork, Cybernetic in its structure,using time-lapse photography as a medium. I previously released the raw main footage that forms “Pérsistance”(featured internationally).

To make things endlessly short, it is based on a concept I created which is the “Anti-parallel”. The Anti-parallel is when you have two entities, or flows of any type interacting together, in this artwork one of the numerous flows is Time. Continue reading

Snow Shoot (Video Inside)

Register to Mailing list to have the final edited  Videoart

I was performing a test of an important feature in the Nikon D4 that went unnoticed to me for a good time. A feature that I thought was new in the Nikon D4s, which is the “auto-ISO” on M manual mode. A friend of mine told me that he loved this feature because it has smaller increments than the usual 1/3 ev steps in most high end cameras. I thought smaller increments would be a qualitative addition when working sequences especially those with a light transition of more than 15 f-stops. Continue reading

Problems of Telephoto in Timelapse

Since I started encountering telephotos in incrementing focal lengths, as well as sturdier tripods and heads. Using them in time-lapse became a challenge.

On one side, sharp imagery with a long telephoto can be achieved with good gear, smart mounting and handling techniques. On the other side, sequences have their own problematic, which usually do not affect shooting individual photographs. Continue reading

Ehden, Snow at Dawn

Everyone was waiting for the snow, the snow that we missed and was scarce last year. Zeina storm came, painted Lebanon in White down to the sea. In every moment the storm was hitting hard with rain, it was peacefully throwing snow in absolute silence. Continue reading
