Beautiful Raindrops

Recently I bought a Canon 7D camera. I bought it for the sole purpose of taking video, even though I have enjoyed the profesional looking photos as well. These are some pictures of my nieces I am giving to my mom for her birthday:

 

 

 

I love these photos, and every other photo I have taken with my 7D. Though, what I got the camera for is more like this:

This video was done by a very talented guy named Oton Bačar, or at least I think that’s his name, it might be some kind of stage name. Mr. Bačar uses his Canon 7D to film, but then throws the video into After Effects to edit it and add the raindrops. The extreme slow motion, which is 2000 fps by the way, is done by a very cool program called Twixtor.

The music for this video is original. The creator for it is Nikas, and you can find his music at  niklasaman.com/​music. His music is free to use, and for the most part it is all very well done.

New and fantastic Neon Indian track!

I have been watching the progress of this band for a few years now, and I have to say, I am never disappointed. Their style has been improving with every album, and their sound has been infectiously growing on the nation. Here is their video for their new song “Polish Girl.” Enjoy.

If you like MUSE, you will love this.

The brilliant, yes I said BRILLIANT english threesome MUSE doesn’t always put all their hit songs on their records. Here are some amazing songs that were popular in Brittan, but never made it on their records, and definitely never made it to the U.S.

Using a Nikon Lens on a Canon Camera

The Canon EOS 7D SLR camera is the hottest camera on the market under $2,000, and for a good reason. This camera can do things that have shocked the world of video, and for that reason it has been used to film things like CSI Miami, the Tonight Show and SNL openings, and a few others. It has even shot movies like the independent zombie flick Dead Season. Yet, before you run out and buy one with a big ol’ Canon lens attached, let me show you what lens is a perfect 7D match.

The Nikon 50mm f/1.4 is a beautiful lens. Nikon has been making the lens for more than 50 years, and it keeps getting more popular. The biggest reason for the recent explosion in popularity is the rising of Canon DSLR HD videos and films. With canon 50mm lenes you can’t change the apature while filming. Also, with the Nikon, it is much easier to use the manual focus, making your shots beautiful as you switch your soft focus between subjects. I could sit here and type up all the reasons for why exactly this lens rocks, but instead let me show you.

For complete descriptions of the each version of the Nikon 50mm f/1.4 that has been made through the years, go here.

Social Networking Car?!

Ford, yes Ford has created not only a wicked awesome looking sports car, but it also has some incredibly futuristic features. These features include being able to social network while driving, knowing what temp you want the car to be before getting in it, and even being able to tell what mood you are in. You can read more about it here.

Back to P-Town

Portland is such an amazing city. It’s the only place that I have been, where you go to a theater to see a concert, and the guys on the street outside the venue are better musicians than the band you are going to see. And the funny thing is, the guys on the street could probably be playing that venue if they wanted to, but they don’t, they love playing for street crowds. Amazing. Simply amazing.

Radiodhead is Magic

Here it is, Radiohead doing their lates album” The King Of Limbs” live in a studio. Talent has never been so apparent.
