Oil and Ink

Posted by | Photography | No Comments


Oil and ink photography by Alberto Seveso. More after the break.

Dropping, is the natural evolving of my previous projects using ink and water. This time I tried something different using the oil instead the water and the outcome was amazing! The title is very important to me, because it is a tribute to the master of the dripping technique, Jackson Pollock. I always was a big fan of the chaos theory. – Alberto Seveso

Painting With Light And Strobe Bullet Time

Posted by | Art, Photography, Random | No Comments

This is a pretty cool video by artist Richard Kendall, which he created using light and bullet time. He notes that this finished work is the result of 3 months of shooting on location with the bullet time rig around China, a 96 camera rig, 30s sequential exposure, a lot of running around with light, and combining manual/pulsing strobe flash. I’m not sure if he used this to create his paintings, but it seems like it would have a similar effect.

Photographer Luka Klikovac captures magnified images of colored fluid suspended in the depths of dark water. The bold colors used in the fluid contrast with the dark background and create a mystifying and almost alien like composition. Each shot displays the fluid floats randomly to the bottom in a dripping motion as it strings and clumps together in unique fashion. This experimental technique takes simple colored fluid and makes it look alive, resembling something one might find in the depths of the ocean.

via dailymail. Very cool photo. If you know me, and we happen to be bored one day… ask me to tell the story of when lightning struck my car. Haha.

An incredible eight [lightning] bolts struck the Bay Bridge in San Francisco last night which was captured in this incredible shot by photographer Phil McGrew, who took the photo through the rain-soaked window of his apartment.

Mr McGrew, 49, was shocked at the striking image which shows the split-second moment of electric forks hitting the span of the bridge.

Photographing Jellyfish

via jeffwongdesign. Cool photos! On another note, I’ve always enjoyed checking out the jellyfish wall over at the GA Aquarium… these photos remind me of that.

Russian biologist Alexander Semenov graduated in 2007 from Moscow State University’s zoology department where he studied invertebrate animals. Specifically: squid brains. Now he works as the chief of his diving team at the White Sea Biological Station, camera always in-hand, where he’s captured some of these extraordinary photographs of jellyfish and other wildlife. You can see more images in his photo galleries or you can follow him on Flickr.

Only In Japan: The ‘Levitating’ Girl

Posted by | Only In Japan, Photography | No Comments

via mymodernmet. This is pretty cool! More photos after the break.

Natsumi Hayashi is a sweet-looking Japanese girl who, one day, decided to take self-portraits… of herself levitating. She can be spotted in and around Tokyo, equipped with her SLR and her self-timer. When she feels the moment strike, she presses the shutter button down and then, quite literally, “jumps” into place.

What I love most about her shots is that they don’t feel forced. Natsumi has a way of making us feel as though she naturally levitates throughout life.

When I asked her how others react to her jumping around Tokyo, here is a funny story that she shared. “One day, when I was jumping at a famous sightseeing spot in western Tokyo, workers at a souvenir shop were frightened by how I was jumping. They were whispering things like ‘Is the girl mentally ill’ and ‘Do we need to call the police?’

“So I stopped jumping and apologized to them by saying, ‘I am taking jumping photos for my wedding party’s slide show.’ Their faces turned bright red, and they said things like ‘Oh dear!’ and ‘Congratulations!’ and even ‘Keep jumping!’

“Then, I took one of the best levitation shots of the entire series.”
