The Morning After the Storm

October 31st, 2010

I took these pictures one fine morning in Antibes, France, in April of this year.

The above shot is a mini-panorama , combined from 3 images. That means that the two birds in the centre of the shot are actually the same bird, just shot moments apart.

On another note – today check out these tutorials:

Garage Sale

July 31st, 2010

Hey guys! Today I want to share with you this extraordinary story.

An artist named Rick Norsigian paid $45 back in 2000 for 65 glass negatives that he bought at a yard sale in southern California. Turns out these negatives are long lost negatives taken by nature photography legend Ansel Adams between 1919 and the early 1930s. Their worth? An estimated $200 million dollars.

Yep. Two. Hundred. Million.

Just awesome news!

Check out the full story on Mr. Norsigian’s website here. You can also see a Reuters news video here.

Also, check out the official Ansel Adams website here for a selection of the master’s work.
