New Work: Photography 1

Such an amazing group of young photographers that have made their way through Photography 1 this past semester!  I could have easily shown 20 more images but limited the post to these nineteen.  I am looking forward to seeing many of these fine students in Advanced Photography over the coming semesters!!

I See What You Did There...

(via past T. West advanced photography student Savannah Abbott)

A New Look!

Now that the Photosynthesis blog just passed its 3rd anniversary, it was about time for a facelift.  I hope you don't mind the new look.  I think it is a blessed improvement!  Especially now that the images and videos are much larger on the main page.  You can still click on them to view them larger and in a slideshow, but if you are not much of a clicker than you can enjoy the images as they are.

If you have any suggestions, please feel free to leave them in the comments section of this post.  Thanks!

Aerial Photographs of the UK...in 3D!

 The Angel of the North sculpture, Jason Hawkes

[via www.boston.comDo not adjust your monitor. You're looking at 3D photographs by Jason Hawkes of sites around the UK.  You'll need some 3D glasses, and fortunately, they're easy to make yourself.  Jason shares some tips for shooting from a helicopter, as well as making images in 3D: "I normally fly in a Eurocopter AS355 which is a five seater machine.  I sit in the back wearing a harness and we usually take off the doors before flight.  I shoot on Nikon D3X and D3S using lenses from 14mm up to 300mm. (3D) Rigs on helicopters are a nightmare, especially as I might use three different types of helicopters in a week.  In the end I found with a little trial and error its just as easy to shoot with a single camera as long as you get the timings spot on.  Once you have the images you just use some standard Anaglyph software to integrate the shots and you end up with these stereoscopic images.  When viewed with chromatically opposite lenses you perceive the images as having three dimensions." -- Lane Turner
