Japanese Vending Machines at Night ▶︎

“One snowy night. Ohashi was walking outside when he found himself transfixed by the form of snow that had piled up on top of a vending machine.”

I really want to go back to Japan.

Coffee & Classics November 2015

I went along to this month’s edition of Fuel Magazine’s Coffee & Classics this morning. Rather more sedate than the last time I went, probably because there were a few showers about.

Coffee & Classics September 2015

A few of my shots from the first Fuel Magazine Coffee & Classics meet in Port Melbourne for the season. Do really need to get the ‘tii back on the road and take it to one of these.

Building 3D with IKEA ▶︎

Kirsty Parkin for The Computer Graphics Society:

“Every year, CGSociety goes to SIGGRAPH, one of the premier conferences on innovation for the computer graphics and VFX industries in the world. In 2012, we watched as Martin Enthed, the IT Manager for the in-house communication agency of IKEA, gave a short presentation. He told us how their visualisation team had evolved from the use of traditional photography for the IKEA catalogue to a system today, where the bulk of its imagery is CG.”

Hard to argue with the flexibility that moving to CG allows, especially when it looks as good as it does.

Filter? ▶︎

I generally roll without a filter, only sometimes resorting to a cir-pol if the light is particularly harsh. On the other hand I generally can’t tell if a UV makes any difference at all and have always thought putting something in front of a precision lens has to be a bad thing. Kind of like putting a crappy case around your beautifully engineered iPhone to ‘protect’ it or leaving the plastic on the seats of your new car. This article adds to fuel to the fire. (via)

Back to the track

Headed to an RCA organised track day at SIC last weekend to grab some shots. A seriously busy morning, tonnes of cars on track at the same time and quite a few red flags due to incidents.

The Future's So Bright

Some new filters

The 24-105 seemed to struggle a little trying to properly expose the sky on a recent trip, so I’ve splashed out on some filters to see if I can fix it. Not usually a fan of putting something else between the subject and sensor however something needs to be done.

Aperture Three-Oh

Apple this morning announced the next version of their pro-photo workflow app, Aperture 3.0.

Aperture 3.0

Lots of new features, I particularly like that it now supports presets (preset adjustments) and the new brushes function looks pretty slick. This version also gets the iPhone ‘09 Faces and Places features added, Places gets some additional functionality to support importing GPS tracks and another function to use GPS data slurped from iPhone photos, without necessarily importing the iPhone photos themselves into your Aperture library. 3.0 also supports importing and storing video files (like iPhoto), it even has a nifty feature to easily extract a jpg screenshot from captured video and another to easily separate audio+video tracks.

Nothing seems to have been done about my big bugbear with Aperture: lack of native ability to backup to physical media (i.e. DVD) with any ease. There are a couple of plugins that do this, I just wish it was as simple as the way iPhoto does it.

That said, I’m really looking forward to installing this update.
