Scattered Images

Roberts Birze, known as thescatteredimage on Flickr, has a neat set called “scattered images” in which he creates surreal panoramas by combining a large number of digital photographs taken of a particular scene:

Regarding how to make these images, Birze tells us,

“The execution and construction of these “scattered images” is very simple (although time consuming) and no real secret. It’s the planning and ability to visualise the scene that’s difficult. Firstly, take many photos of the scene you have in mind. Make sure the separate shots all overlap … then take a few more just in case. Some of my images may have as little as 9 images – others almost 300. Then, using photo editing software that allows the use of layers, create a large new canvas and then copy and paste each image onto a new layer. Then it’s up to you to make each image fit (or not) as you like. Layer effects like drop shadows can be applied to give more separation between images.”

Creating a scattered image panorama might be great as a present for someone if you were to have it printed out and framed.

TED talk – David Griffin on how photography connects us

TED is a small nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader. Along with the annual TED Conference in Long Beach, California, and the TEDGlobal conference in Oxford UK, TED includes the award-winning TEDTalks video site, the Open Translation Program, the new TEDx community program, this year’s TEDIndia Conference and the annual TED Prize.

Love is timeless

Love is timeless

I find it fascinating when you find new photos that look like they’ve been taken decades ago. A time when life was simpler, when choices were few. For Stacie and Geoff’s engagement session, Sloan photographers recaptured their love in a beautifully nostalgic way. No fancy hotel backdrop, no pretense in the air…just a swing, a blanket, some vinyl and some soda pop.

See the full set at Sloan Photographers.
