Charles Lupica83,296═════════════════════════════════     Top Photographers you should follow                 An Art of Photography Circle  Photographers whose art we think will amaze you ═════════════════════════════════#ArtOfPhotographyCircle tag to allow people to easily mute this post. It's been a while since I shared a circle here on G+ so I thought I would team up with +Scott Thomas and +Brian Dukes to share with you the first new circle I've created in more than a year.  We think you'll find that the photographers in this circle are some of the very best that G+ has to offer.  Of course you're probably already following people like Jeff Sullivan , Lori Hibbett, Jay Patel and  Vivienne Gucwa but we think that all of the people in this circle will add high quality content to your stream.  All share their amazing work and many of them share tutorials and resources to help you perfect your art. When deciding who would be in this circle, we used these guidelines• Sharing mostly their own work• When sharing the work of others, the work is clearly identified• Little to no, promotional material. • Some people are included that share a lot about technique but may not share a lot of their photography.• If they have gifs in their stream, they're almost always educational. • The images shared by these people frequently fall into the category of, "I wish I'd taken it" • They post to G+ on a regular basis,  For some this may be a little as once a month.  For others, this may be one or more a day.  People who post less than once a month are not included.  We prefer to circle people that are active here on G+. No one has asked to be in this circle, however, we intend to share a version of this each month.  *If you know of a talented photographer you'd like us to add*, please leave a comment and share the circle.  Doing so will get us to look at their profile. However, there is no guarantee that we'll include them in a future circle.   We want to maintain the quality of this circle.  Therefore, we will only add photographers that we would want to see in our own personal stream. Many of the photographers in this circle are well known so we are particularly interested in hearing your choice of photographers with fewer than 15'000 followers.  We would like to give them the opportunity to gain more views for their work.Please plus, comment and share.  This circle has no requirements for future participation but your support and encouragement is appreciated.I have chosen the name of the circle carefully to try to accurately represent the quality of the work by the photographers in it.  ValidationThis circle was very heavily vetted.  We have looked at each photographer's stream and decide that we would like to include them in this circle. +Charles Lupica (me), +Scott Thomas and +2014-06-27 17:39:05116924955

Anyone has a solution for the "Error 500"? Since weeks it is really a question of patience to even click a plus on someones image, twenty reloads before I can do it are typical. Not really "my cup of tea".
...
So, please excuse my silence here. I keep trying...
Thanks anyway to G+ for delivering a great service so far!

"Dunes", AZ

Very close to the Mexican-Border, one of the largest dunes I have seen in Arizona. Around 300 miles from home, and the world is drastically different. (Thanks to Johan who drove us with his new vehicle right into the "no-where"!)
(Five images stitched, then the lens was covered in sand...)

Park in Glendale, CA

It is the "old/previous" German Park. I might share tomorrow why I post this today ;o) {Edit: On Friday I got my U.S. Citizen-Chip} :o)
I shot it last Sunday with a GoPro4 holding the monopod up, so it reached 12 foot or so. Not bad for such a tiny camera. (~270º view, 8192 pixels wide originally) 
Enjoy (I do, I took off for the rest of the year, woohoo!)

Park, CA. Dec. 

Sunday walks, test walks... This one is based on GoPro4 4K [UHD] footage. I placed the tiny little cam on a monopod and stretched myself and the monopod up. The cam landed somewhere in the middle hight of the trees :o)
Then I rotated the monopod and stopped roughly in 45º steps. 
No idea what the camera captured [by then], it has no monitor nor a viewfinder, it did it all... The result was a 10,240 pixel wide pano.

I saw a "hang out" on G+: (Honestly, I switched it off quickly)
I don't know where else to put it, but just to address people who like to be a critic:
An opinion is not a critique. Brainstorming is not critique. Taste is not the base for an art review. It needs a little bit more depth and IQ to be on that level. Better to be quiet if that level is not a given.
(...)
Just to be pro-active, here is my must read before one does a critique in public:

Arizona's largest sandbox, close to Yuma, AZ

Sand, Wind and some kind of "Mad Max" feeling is in this place. I was told that a few days later, roughly 100,000 people are expected in this area.
Johan, originally from The Netherlands, gave us a ride over that hill deeper into the "Dune", at least far enough to see no civilization anymore. Love it.

Somewhere in Los Angeles [East], CA

Close on our ride home to L.A. we got this wonderful sun-set, and -- so I was told, it lasted longer than any other so far known to my partner. After nearly an hour drive, the glow of the sky dimmed. A great way to enjoy the ride home and end a trip.

Yuma, AZ Prison-Cell

It was nearly too small to move around with a camera in my hand, and with 5'10" and not even 140 pounds I'm certainly not oversized ;o)

To shoot here an 360º without tripod of course, seemed like a failure from the start, but this was just too perfect for my target. This was what some people had as constant visual for decades perhaps. 

Twelve people and nearly no room, certainly a jail that makes people think twice to steal a horse again.

Salton Sea, CA Beach

Since quite some years I do something during Sun-sets, I look in the opposite direction. I found that sometimes there is the "better" picture, ..not always of course ;o)

Here is a 180º view to that back-view; Which I really enjoyed. I love light and the gradients it draws a lot. I love simplicity (more often than not ;o)

Enjoy.

Close to sun set, and I hope the feeling of sitting in a warm sunny evening sun on the beach is delivered ;o)

The water turned green-bluish at that time, it was fantastic.

(I shot it as an 20,480 pixels wide panorama, here only 10% in size.)

DIY -- Clear Body Cap -- #openlensing  

For some open lensing work with my Canon I wouldn't be too concerned about dust and stuff, but having paid in the last year $19K for my sensor update on my RED Dragon (from Scarlet), things are a little bit different.
This has a Canon EOS mount with an adapter to hold filters. So simple that I wonder why I haven't seen it before.

Here is the DIY list. (I got all from Amazon), I paid a little bit over $20 for this set up. ;o) Peace of mind now, and way more fun to play even with just magnifying glasses and such... :o)

1
Fotodiox Lens Mount Adapter, Black M42 (42mm x1 thread Mount) Lens to Canon EOS DSLR Adapter

3
Clear filter, UV and preferable coated (or not -- for extra flare)

Soon I like to publish a "Making Of" series about this music video.
It will focus on the Camera Projection used in it. This technique uses a single photo (sometimes more) and project it to geometry. With that, a 3D camera can create an camera move. Think of an expensive crane-shot. 
Well, it is a two part series, a Master Class first, to learn all about this technique, which I use successfully since roughly fifteen years by now for TV and Film work. The music video by itself got a Platinum Award at the 46th WorldFest Houston, TX, USA. :o)

Normally I like to help with my tutorials, this time I have a different idea: (Please share if you like it)

Dear Amazon Founder/President Jeffrey Preston "Jeff" Bezos,

This is not a request for money, not at all. This is a request for support to help your customers in Detroit.

The Ford Foundation developed an idea for Detroit. I have a simple, but hopefully effective, idea to get money which might be otherwise be forgotten. My idea needs a strong payment system with a good engineering IQ, which Amazon certainly has.

1) The problem

The Ford Foundation need $816 million to save Detroit.

2) The idea

Given the fact that many U.S. citizens have received a money gift-card, which they used most of, there is often a small amount still left on such a card. This little bit could make the difference.
If everyone would have a simple option to simply donate that remainder to a good cause, huge amounts of money could easily be collected. 


3) The missing link

Imagine, on one's Amazon site, an interface where one could choose what cause one wants to support, and after typing in the gift-card number, the remainder on the card could be offered to the cause. Wouldn't that be simple and safe? A "1-2-3-step process"; quick, safe and simple. These money gift-cards are often otherwise useless for "real" shopping with the only few dollars left on them.

If one likes to get a donation receipt, just use the provided e-mail field and a pdf is submitted to that address.


Mr. Bezos, all I ask for is something that Amazon does already for Kickstarter, but in a different way, to help people to overcome obstacles.
I do not ask for anything in return, certainly not for any money for myself: I just like to help. Detroit would be certainly a good cause.

If you have a minute, please let me know if there is a way to get this done. I certainly will try to get Darren Walker, the president of the Ford Foundation, to support this idea. I think it is a win-win situation.

“There are often skeptics who have given up on American cities,” Mr. Walker said not long ago. “And this is a big mistake. We can’t give up on our cities.”  [nytimes.com]

Detroit's citizens would be the initial starters of the social media PR for the campaign. 

Kind regards,

Dr.V.Sassmannshausen Ph.D. ["Dr. Sassi"]

I can't help myself, the more option a lens gives me the more fun I have. I have to admit that the saturation of it is a little bit beyond of my normal liking, but oh well, here we go... hehehe.

Texture

Sorry to be that quite here for the past weeks, but getting up all the 51 "Texture" clips took me a while. ;o) Time for the next series to prepare for upload. Any content here is produced for this series by me, and I hope it is complete. 

I took the title image from one of my [celluloid] film, by capturing it now as "macro", to showcase the long duration that I use cameras for my work already. The image is taken in Venice, Italy [1983], and captures the work of Carlos Scarpa. It is a private building we had the pleasure to do be busy in.

A Teaser, thehehe, two minutes and just an overview of fourteen+ hours. I like to flip through a book when I get a new one, first impression – similar to this clip: flipping through very quickly.

Yes, it is long, and it was quite some work to get all the set ups and examples. I have certainly developed some techniques newly, as in the other series. I love to do that and share it. 

I will start very soon to upload the single parts of the series. :o)

Texture

How to extract the areas that are reflective, so a 3D app "knows" what to do!? I discuss things like that.

I guess it is really complete, as it is long, detailed and has taken a lot of time to produce. Yet alone to de-noise the audio tracks (etc) and compress the 51 parts, is quite some work. But with over 1,200 tutorials produced in the past decade, I'm used to this kind of work. I hope some people will enjoy it. :o)

The next tutorial series, which I will publish soon, is about "texture".
(Clip is 13 seconds long)

How to capture them -- so they look as close as possible to the "real" thing. I know that is a difficult discussion by itself, but I try anyway.

To take textures for 3D animations or visualizations is more the task of an "reproduction" photographer. In the past two decades I have seen plenty of texture libraries come and go. The key to all of them is to know how to get them in sync with the whole scene, so to mix and match from many sources is not a good idea.

Prototypes -- Examples

The first part might be boring, just stay tuned. Train your eye. :o)

I have made 36 different aperture designs, and of course I need to test those. Based on my findings I can improve those.
My interest here is of course fore, middle, back-ground separation and "drawing". How does the Bokeh develops and as a sub-part the blooming of highlights. 
Each of the 36 will deliver a different mix, and even if they are nice (or perhaps not) by it self, all parts of the image should support -- whatever the image is supposed to communicate. 
Instead of showing 180 images, I placed them in a movie. Enjoy.

Prototypes

I'm pretty excited. My first batch of prototypes has arrived today. These are aperture blades for the Water-house aperture in the #Petzval lens. You might have seen similar stuff for Lens-baby optics. I placed two always on one blade, as I found the single use very impractical. I might mix the couples newly later on.
These are all my own designs and tests. I will refine them and update my design later. Today I got 36 different one, and from the start several won't work. However, the main target shapes work just as expected. I got already some impressions and new ideas. Pure fun.

Perhaps an image many people will scroll just along. So, why do I post it anyway? The "Waterhouse diaphragm" is the option here to just get a hole into a piece of tin and experiment. The target here was a vertical stream in the background.
Which worked for me, so I sketched 36 patterns and I will get the prototypes of these for my weekend shooting. :o) We will see if it works...

While getting clear where I might like to shoot with the "singer" for the music video, I found this light. It reminded me on the paintings of Gerhard Richter. Back during my art study time (University of the Arts Berlin) -- Richter was one of my favorite painters, and certainly never lost that status.
I can certainly say the past hundred paintings that I did in Berlin would have looked differently without him. (I donated all the reminding paintings last year for a good cause)
This photo is pretty much as is out of the camera. just a little bit contrast as I shoot mostly very flat.

Just a little light test. This image has no additional (extra) light, just as I found it on location. For the final shooting I will have some light packages, but the testing another new lens (35mm F1.4 Art) showed me I can work here easily. The camera performed nicely, and no lights are clipped, they all have texture and I have even two stops headroom left.
Noise is there, but the noise of the RED Dragon is more texture than anything else. ;o) Will be gone though in the final footage.

Garden, CA

A little light "beam" made this a wonderful test image for "Chromatic Aberration".
The lens is nearly free of it (here at F/2.8). I have more attention on that quality and distortion than on sharpness. I haven't really seen a good fix for CA, and certainly not in LR, not at all in Adobe products. 
For stills that might be OK, but for movie work, anything that needs to be "fixed in post" is painful, thehe. A typical movie has 130.000 frames.
As I will shoot in 6K (RED Dragon), each step more to fix something ends up in rendering of weeks rather than minutes for a longer movie. Test done here with a Canon 5dm2.
So, to get it done in camera is my ideal of course. (Lens tested here Sigma 50mm Art, quite impressed so far, but testing continues)

Not even 50 minutes long, but it could transform the way you work. Literally.
I met Tomasz the first time during our (MAXON) X-mas party in 2005, if I recall this correctly. What he has created since, is breathtaking, and many of you might have seen his work already. 

His approach is idea driven, using tools as they should be used, supportively. "The idea is the hardest part..." but with many hundreds of published works and nearly uncounted awards, I guess that is not in question here. 

I hope you enjoy the ride!

This presentation took place at this years Siggraph on the show floor, at the Maxon booth, and is hosted by Cineversity (... where I teach).

I met Tomasz the first time during our (MAXON) X-mas party in 2005, if I recall this correctly. What he has created since, is breathtaking, and many of you might have seen his work already. 

His approach is idea driven, using tools as they should be used, supportively. "The idea is the hardest part..." but with many hundreds of published works and nearly uncounted awards, I guess that is not in question here. 

I hope you enjoy the ride!

This presentation took place at this years Siggraph on the show floor, at the Maxon booth, and is hosted by Cineversity (... where I teach).

Park in L.A., CA

Knowing the park and its light, I used my newest sensor (RED Dragon) and the oldest lens-construction (from 1840, but a new build) for a walk. Here is just a snapshot from a clip I filmed. The lens has a little "knurled nut" and from close to infinity, that is all in a quarter rotation. Very fragile, to say the least, of course no autofocus, hehe.

Eight Years California Sun: They got some tan!

I shot this for the background texture, isn't it nice what the lens does to flat concrete?

BTW, these shoes are from 2006, have seen the shoemaker more than often and have eight years now of California Sun collected. I guess I walked around 4-5000 miles since in them. 
The one who design them, is called SchuhBertl (ShoeBertl) and resides in Munich, Germany. While I lived in Munich I visited him, to ask for a pair of boots, I had some Englishh-Handcrafted and they got old, ten years by then. I needed new ones. We talked 90 minutes about shoes and how they are crafted. (I hate glue as base shoe construction...) two years later I got my pair of black boots. :o)

The Sandals are (AFAIK) his design, and handcrafted. This Summer I bought a second pair, just in case. I love quality. Schuhbertl.de

He is an "original" of Munich, with no doubts.

Expensive? They are cheaper on the long run.  ...or walk. :o)___

Late Summer - Garden, CA

This is our grumpy little guy in our garden, always good to upload unwanted stuff, thehehe. But also a very patient model. (He enjoys it, but never would admit it!)


I don't often use hash tags, but today I do. ;o)

Petzval was the inventor of this lens, somewhat around 1840+.
It is a replica, but nevertheless a beauty. 

I shot this today an hour after I got the lens. For me lenses are like brushes for painting, they have many qualities. Sharpness is not my primarily concern, lenses have so much more life and soul sometimes, or some are just clinical and sharp. All fine, ... at the right moment!

I love to collect individual lenses, this is a keeper for sure.
To change the f-stop, you have to swap out little blades. The body is brass (full metal). Another welcome adventure. Wow, I love it.

Over at my "G+ Page" or at my Youtube channel I continue to upload new tutorials. Here is just an example:

Panoramas for 3D artists, Part 2q
Extra: Background panoramas with shift lenses

http://youtu.be/E1UfZbqbE-M

Please note that the target group for these tutorials is based on 3D Artists and their needs. The information might differ from the needs for Fine Art Photography.

P.S.: In 3D we use 1.5 times the resolution to get what we need on the end. So around 6K is only twice of HD. ;o)

For my next little project, I got today the approval from Moby to use a specific song from one of his CDs. I'm beyond excitement. :o)
