30 Seconds With a Bobcat!

I love time compression and expansion. This was shot on my iPhone with an application named TimeLapse. The reason I chose to use this application instead of any of the other time lapse applications, even the iPhone native time lapse mode, is that this application will capture full res still images. And from those I can import them into lightroom, make some global adjustments, and I can reframe the image to the 1920x1080p hd video by croping some of the original image.

Cool. Is it not?

iPhone – Hyperlapse by Instagram – Five trips around Fallbrook California

This posting contains most of an entire day driving around Fallbrook California.

The video above is a Youtube playlist that contains all five videos. Make sure you use the HD version.

This application, Hyperlapse by Instagram, is a free tool that was released a couple days ago for the iPhone. The folk at Instagram realized that the iPhone has abuilt in gyroscope whose results can be used by other applications, including the one they just released.

So, in effect, your iPhone can now be a gyrostabalized video camera. … 🙂 Cool!

I love this place in the canyon. It had always appeared to me as a place to gather; gather friends, gather performers, or just gather any group of people in the shade of a tree, sitdown and have a beer, and a very good conversation.

My nephew was very proud of his new Surfboard.

The board was built, owned, and used by a famous local shaper, builder, and surfer. Props to anyone that can identify the local legend from his logo.

An iPhone Self Portrait for Facebook

Where do most of my Facebook profile images come from?

Self portraits, 🙂 Yes. We all do them. …

Often, I have to be somewhere other than at my computer working, and other than shooting elsewhere. … Just waiting, waiting for anything, Godot, an appointment. … Whatever.

So I grab my little iPhone, and shoot a few images at arms distance, and then I play. I have almost 120 iPhone applications that are dedicated to image manipulation, after the shoot editing. It is a kind of digital playground. …

After I play with all the tools on the iPhone, quite often I find a way to use a semblance of the effects on my real images.

iPhone Panoramas are cool. … And easy.

I love my little iPhone, and the eight megapixel camera it contains. I sometimes use it for photos that I will actually use in one way or another. … I like some of the filters I use with it, and I will use many images to stitch together a complete Panorama, or, in this case, I also love the built in ability to do its own Panoramas.

Click on the photo to the right and you will see a large version that will explain some aspects of the iPhone Cameras Panorama ability.

The reason I am writing this is that I have met many iPhone users who do not even know about this ability. Now. If you are one of those that have not really used that Panorama ability, pick up you iPhone, turn on its camera, and shoot one, right now, wherever you are, whatever you are doing. … After all, you cannot be really busy, you are reading this post. 😉
