[SpareTime Project] PhotoSynth : Montpellier Antigone

This is a new “SpareTime Project”, playing (and testing) with Microsoft PhotoSynth.

Photosynth creates an amazing new experience with nothing more than a bunch of photos. Creating a synth allows you to share the places and things you love using the cinematic quality of a movie, the control of a video game, and the mind-blowing detail of the real world.

Most likely all you have to do is to take hundreds of picture, load it in PhotoSynth and it will automaticly stitch it together in 3D space 🙂

This is my first attempt by taking picture of Montpellier Antigone. So far I tried to re-create the path of the entire Antigone. But I guess I didn’t took enought picutre (about 400 photos) so it couldn’t stitch some different part together.

You will need Silverlight to test it or PhotoSynth plugin for the DX version. (damn Microsoft … couldn’t use Flash like everybody >_<)

[ Flickr ] My FISE 2009’s photoset

Last week-end was the FISE at Montpellier, so it was a good reason to go and shoot some photos and videos. I guess this could be a “Spare Time Project” as well. I did learn a lot by shooting sport photos ! It is way harder than what I thought. I did use some old optics on my D90 so, aperture, shutter, and so on totally manual, but it’s a really nice way to learn.

Basically this is what I learned :

  • Think fast
  • Set your camera when nothing happen
  • keep your two eyes open (one in the camera, the other one on the field)
  • understand what the riders are going/want to do
  • always stay aware of what happen
  • look every where
  • know your gears !

all those things are quite common, and actually that what I mostly do every time I take a picture, but with, what I would call, high speed shooting those things are way more intense !!

[Red One Camera] Good Morning Megan Fox

Love the woman, Love the camera !!!Wish I had the same … camera 🙂

Ok let’s be honest here, she is hot, pretty and all that stuff, but hey! would this movie look the same without the “Red One”?!? :p  I have seen videos from the last NAB that shows the second generation of Red camera coming soon. Which hopefuly will drop off the price of the first generation. For now my D90 will do ^^

Anyway just sit and watch my friends :

[Photo] Sunny Day in Montpellier


Sunny Day, originally uploaded by Ti’bou.

I took this picture today with my HTC cellphone so I would send it to some friends that lives in the cold. I was really amazed by the quality of the camera and the color of the picture. So I did a bit of Photoshop on it and kept it on Flickr. That’s not the best picture of all time for sure, but I like it for several reason.
by the way, this picture was taken in Montpellier in March, Oh yeah !!!
