Crunchy Betty has this great tutorial about making picture tiles. It uses mod podge, so it’s not archival, but they look really nice. There is a tutorial here, including how to hang them. Tutorial includes pictures.
I just got this email from adobe creative cloud that includes a tutorial on how to remove camera shake from an image. This could be useful in the future, particularly since I’m planning on shooting my next work in a place where I might be moving around a lot.
I’m working on a skill share powerpoint to share image stacking, how I learned it and how I do it. (For stuff I’ve already posted about this, see this post). This post will include additional references on image stacking, focusing on star trail style stacking and images by other photographers.
Astrophotography: Star Photo Stacking by PKM (instructable)
Photographer Lincoln Harrison captures jaw-dropping photographs of star trails. Shooting from the Australian outback, he spends up to 15 hours creating each image of the night sky. Shooting with a Nikon D7000, Nikon D3100, and a wide assortment of lenses, Harrison captures a large number of exposures of the foreground and stars separately. He then combines the images (sometimes hundreds of them) into amazing photographs showing the sky dominated by colorful star trails.
Further browsing Petapixel turned up photographer Ben Canales (see Zhang’s Petapixel article on him here) who also does stacks of stars. His website is here and a tutorial video he did about his workflow is here.
Example of Grant Kaye’s star trail photography can be found here.
I’m about to start photo polymer printing in my printmaking class, so I was doing some research on artists and technique and came across this article by Jim Read called Photopolymer printing on a budget.
A classmate came up to me today and asked how to seperate black and white onto two different images to print them out. We discussed trading white for light grey since the lab doesn’t have white, but I couldn’t figure out how to do what she wanted.
Enter the google machine.
I won’t be using this for screenprinting any time soon, but it could be useful for other photographic or graphic work in the future.
