For those who do not know me, I started Digital Art at a very young age, I was always amazed by Virtuality, I always believed that Virtuality was actually another state of Reality or maybe what we call Reality is a Virtuality after all. Continue reading
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
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.
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

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
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
