November DownhillLong time no see! I've been busy with a bunch of stuff, but at least I've got something to show for it. I got into downhill riding and also got a new camera, so the natural thing was to connect the two. So here's my first serious mountain biking video. It may not be what you're used to seeing from me, but I still hope you like it.
Watch it here!
Let me know what you think!
Till next time!
Half a World Away ProjectFinally, after a month of arrangements and some 6 months of shooting, packing, developing, scanning, merging and processing, Im very excited to announce that Half a World Away Project is finished and ready for presentation!
The idea was to mix and blend two photographers in a kind of photographic cocktail, and everything that implies: their ideas, their styles, their approach to subjects, their equipment, their cities and continents.
As my watchers you probably know something about me -- suffice it to say I live in Croatia/Europe and mostly shoot between Dubrovnik and Zagreb -- so let me present to you the other integral part in this mix: Domi / StorytellingRavens. Shes a young Australian photographer based in Sydney with a different, alternative photographic style, which is exactly why I picked her. The other reason is that I always wanted to travel to Australia, and in a way, this would be getting a step closer to my dream.
Heres how it all
Upcoming....A bit of info about upcoming stuff. In order of appearance:
1) Kodachrome tribute project
2) Half a world away project
3) f/130 project
I won't spoil the second two by giving out details right now, but the one I'll be uploading for the next while is pretty self-explanatory... Kodachrome is among the first color films ever made, and as some of you may know, Kodak has decided to end it's 74 year long history this year. (on that note, if you have any Kodachrome left, you have 10 days left to get it developed!)
It had a rich past, recording some of defining moments in photography, film but also world history. I wanted to be a part of that history, so I got my hands on a roll of Kodachrome 64 and shot it this summer, then got it to USA for the infamously complex K-14 development. It has just arrived and I'll be sharing some of it with you.
It has a very tangible charm... even though it will probably outlast all the slide film currently in use (it has g
Doublescaled!Okay, so many of you lo-fi addicts heard of redscaling. I did an experiment with it but found the R&B a bit dull (red&black )... maybe due to the fact I was stuck in a dull city at the time. So I decided to take it a step further - doublescale it. This time I did it in my hometown, for me a much more inspiring place.
I literally dreamt this up one afternoon while figuring out how to get crazy colors out of negative film. With slides it's easy - you cross-process it. But crossing negatives takes a huge amount of effort (actually shooting them to be crossed takes the effort, but nevermind) and results aren't exactly spectacular, at least not in my oppinion. So I had to think of something else.
One idea I had, I called it colorscaling (exposing film to colored light before redscaling it), I'd tried before but wasn't really astonished by the results - I got what I wanted but there was no systemic color explosion I wanted. Not so with doublescaling.
To the best of my knowledge, it hasn't
Frozen in time. 10000 times.My latest project is complete. I got the idea while shooting for the Life in a Day project, which I really liked at the time of the shooting but simply couldn't afford the time nor the effort needed to pull it off.
Watch it here: Dubrovnik Summer Nights 2010
The idea was to capture the town, its people and visitors the way I see them. Ocassionally you'll even see people coming and talking to me or even getting in the frame to be a part of the video (for a fraction of a second at least). And since you probably know I see Dubrovnik cross-processed , it turned out to be a certain tribute to all the Sensias and Provias I shot and crossed during these years I've been wandering around the town with my camera.
It took over 10.000 photographs shot over 3 nights, and several more nights to process and edit. Of course, I shot it digital. It would have taken $5000 worth of film (1 roll per
Life In A DayI'm not sure how many of you have heard or participated in the Life In A Day project, but it was an opportunity satanstolemytedibear and me couldn't miss.
For those unfamiliar with it, in short: it's a historic global experiment that will integrate footage shot by thousands of people worldwide into a feature length documentary, portraying a single day on Earth and what it means to have been alive on July 24th 2010.
While we submitted raw footage for the project, I later edited it into a more interesting video.
The video itself is a weird mixture between trying to live the day and simultaneously record it, and since I'm by no means experienced filmmaker, it's FAR from perfect. I can promise it will be interesting but also technically suckish and very shaky and floaty - we recorded it while literally running trying to stick to schedule. There was no script, no repeated scenes, no second chances. Try to look beyond that.
25mm f/1.4As promised, here's a short review of the lens you might have noticed listed under last weeks shots.
First off, some unmanipulated samples so you know what I'm talking about:
I need to tell you, I saw 2 shots someone took with this lens and I was awestruck, amazed and baffled! I don't expect many of you appreciate lenses which have heavy vignetting, curvature of field, circular bokeh, heavy CA and just about every other technical imperfection photography has (successfully) addressed in the past 100 years, but for me, it was love on first sight. I just had to have this lens!
The way it isolated the subject, the way it portrayed the world and the way it could capture that atmospheric surreal feeling every photographer tries to capture was unprecedented in my world.
Luckily for me, it's probably the cheapest lens in the history of world (
New video!If you thought how I seem to shoot even less since I got the digital camera, you're partially right. I do shoot, but mostly video.
I made a couple of short films in past weeks, but one is probably of no interest to wider audience (a documentary from a video-shoot for a rapper trio "Connect"), one was for a narrow circle of friends to demonstrate a new toy I got, and the third is what this journal is about.
It's a pretty artish experimental video and pretty hard to describe, so just watch it here.
Don't expect a deep point, just mostly pretty and/or confusing pictures... and make sure you turn up the volume
Hope you enjoy!
FisheyeYou may have noticed I have something resembling a fisheye lens on my digital camera. How did that come about?
Well, apparently I figured out the cheapest way on the planet to get fisheye lens! I bought the usual 0.5x wideangle converter with macro lens. (The macro lens does two things - enables the lens to focus and enlarges the fisheye image enough to look like wideangle lens instead of barrel distorted image).
So naturally, out of curiosity I detached the macro lens and noticed I get this nice circular fisheye image. However, the problem was I couldn't mount it on the lens just like that, it had a weird thread designed to prevent the very thing I was trying to do. So I just took a hammer and dealt with the macro lens, effectively turning it into stepdown ring.
What you now see is a 50$, f/3.5 fisheye lens with a really wide angle of view. Optical quality matches the price, but it's a lot of fun, especially for video. (and a helluva lot more fun than not having it at all )

Find Your Homestuck Troll Blood Color!Yeah so here is how it works! You need to figure out your sun sign, and your moon sign. There is a calculator similar to this one out there, but it doesn't take in account jade bloods or mutants. This also doesn't require rounding. Hussie has already stated that the only troll blood colors that exist are the ones we have seen in the comic + lime. I also had to take in account that the jade blood color is rare, but the odds of getting jade with the distribution unadjusted are extremely high, so I figured out a way to make it work so it makes sense. I also took in account that fuchsia blood is extremely rare, and so is being mutant. The distribution that I am working with is a pyramid. I'll explain the breakdown at the end.
