"See them flip that coin. They think they're going to capitalize around the holidays. A lot of these things but no time will tell how committed they remain especially when they need more people subscribing to dizzy bus. I also like just remembering that. You know every once in a while you'll be at a party and you'll hear a theory from some filmaker about like no-man's studio objectives of thought all this out like they deliberate like i remember hearing this person's elaborate theory about how they deliberately mis read edgar right. Get all is good ideas on ant man and then they deliberately rude to him to quit nicotine and i was like. Nobody's being deliberate. We're all figuring it out as we go along disney was like okay. We're gonna move online for awhile and now disease like okay. Let's go back to the theaters for awhile. Like at the top and the bottom ends of the world people are still reacting to the world as it happens and evolving with it and like. This is a good evolution. They're trying to get back in. They're going to see how it goes. I have a sneaking suspicion that if the first one totally tanks the ethically we could see them even rolling back and say actually this one holiday movie will also be available on christmas day on your you know it. It's just a reminder that nobody has some weird grand master plan stretching far into the future no matter how many times you think they do like. We're we're all doing the best we can. And that includes disney figuring out their release strategy. Speaking of doing the best you can. Canon has ruled out a great new camera the artery it's mostly quote unquote stills camera. But as we've all been doing for the last twelve years since the canon five d mark came out. We all shoot a lot of video on quote unquote stills cameras. So it's mostly stills camera. That's really focusing on high-speed instills. So you know really. It's not as high resolution as something like the five. It's like twenty. Five megapixel is the are five forty pixels. it's the archive is much higher resolution. But it's a lot of times those lower resolutions and higher frame rates which are what we think of as in still cameras. Cameras are great for filmmakers so this camera has like superior specs to in some ways. The are five for video. You can do sixty six k. Rhonette which is super exciting or four k. Raw oversample but the big headline is and we're about to drop some buzzwords machine learning a augmented autofocus. So i was just joking yesterday. One is this different from the auto focus that we're seeing on like saudis so and the black magic that recently had some autofocus tech. Yeah so you mean the red red. Sorry yeah so tell me Yeah no totally. You gotta leave in. Editors make sure everybody knows. George got one fact wrong about. She's busy. yeah. So i remember so clearly. I got like the name of company wrong in my first month. Writing for film school in the commenters were and i was like i've learned my lesson not reading the compensate. Let's pretend it's my first month. Yeah so basically what it means is we're using more sophisticated technology to try and do better autofocus and the real thing is trying to do is trying to use autofocus that can more accurately follow people as they move around the space and the are three has a super cool feature. Where if you hold your eye to the viewfinder and eye looks around the viewfinder it will try and keep what you are looking at in focus. What house shot possible so it uses a little. I are reader to scan your retina and look at where your retinas looking. And then we'll put whatever you are looking at in focus. Now they're waibel. How video right some stuff. That's crazy there's problems with this right okay. At one level is a filmmaker. You're like oh my god. That's amazing i can do one of those looking back and forth from characters and the scrapbooking you accidentally look like you know a boom. That's something else like cropped. Yeah like if. I'm shooting something cropped and i'm checking out of frame to see like he's my map. Boxing frame is my flag in frame. Like all of the sudden. It's going to rack today. Know this is a feature that filmmakers will use if it's a feature film us and i can't wait to find out when there's some of these in the field again up to do a review the thing. I'm pretty excited to see if we can learn a new discipline of operating with this in mind because this would change operating but a lot of what you do is operating is learned behavior like i learned how to look around to frame to see what's coming. I learned how to look at the actor in the background of shot. And see if they're making you know oftentimes right before someone moves though like sort of lean backwards for the move and you learn how to do that. So is this something where like you could learn how to just like. I'm gonna look where i want it and focus and it's just going to be in focus and i'm going to learn how to do that. I mean it would only really work on our show. Where like you knew your gaffer was looking at your wireless video and they could be lookout for like an errant flag or a boom fall and the audio mixer has video so they can be looking for a boom dip. So you're really really free. But i can imagine it being sort of an interesting discipline of being like all right. I'm watching my framing and i'm like staying concentrated on where i wanted in focus crazy figured out. Oh yeah no. I mean you're right. It's sort of like that thing where you'll you'll hear. Steady cam ops or i sees focused bowlers. Talk about like how they kind of they learn how to merge their biology with the machine to some extent like rhythm of heard camera obstacle in more like esoteric terms. But like if you're doing a music video and the artists pulls away or their dance like you learn to move cameras a part of you and you move with them in the subjects and this really just feels like it could become once people get used to it a way that like okay. We're rolling now. And now my. I is literally interacting with the content on screen. Like i'm. I'm what i'm watching is what i want the viewers i to do like this is a very cool thing like in terms of the relationship between the filmmaker and the finished product. Like i i love it like it's the i'm geeking out about like i think it's crazy i i. I also think we need like like you should write a take on this 'cause just announcing this tacking then talking about the upsides downsides of this tax seems super important to me. This is crazy. Yeah i mean we knew it was coming right because a face tracking has been a thing that you know. There's a famous video out there on the internet. You can find of all the eyeballs watching this scene from. There will be blood so like we've had the academic ability to see where eyeballs are looking by shining Infrared light in them and then seeing screen for a while. So this has been possible for a minute and then wrapping into a success and our camera body now unfortunately. The viewfinder is sort of fixed on the body. It's not like the black magic's excape pro. The viewfinder is a remote thing or like red or axa that you can stick out an arm and build it to a shoulder rig or whatever so this'll be awkward for video makers like for the most part when you're shooting on a five d mark four or five. You're not really sticking your eye on that few finder and like we're really not sure how this works on video like this is still gamera. The video features are an afterthought they know filmmakers by it. But they would rather filmmakers. Spend the six hundred dollars on the c seventy ron's so it.

"Dot com for details. Already up next also talking about studio news. Disney has announced that they are going back to theaters for all of the movies for the rest of the year. So if you remember disney plus is one of the you know they were the real first studio that was like hey what we if we had our own streaming service with blackjack they were the big ones who that and they were releasing movies where originally with lon like an up charge to get it on disney plus and then eventually they were actually. We're just gonna release movies on disney plus at the same time in theaters. This led a lawsuit or scar. Joe sued for fifty million dollars because her contract guaranteed her exclusive the ethical and now disney announced that they are going back to exclusive theatrical releases. It is may be related to that lawsuit and reading some of the other contracts for the talent in those other movies it also could just be that the pandemic is finally starting to die down some places and there's the possibility of some real numbers in the theater in a way that didn't exist before. So maybe it's that but it's good news for people like seeing movies in theaters that you're going to have the option and the exclusive option and it's good news for filmmakers mean chloe's as the turtles coming up and she's going to get a larger chunk of that back end than she would have otherwise because it's going to be larger back ends by being theatrically exclusive for khloe vows attornal. That's a real. That's a. That's a phrase for sure really. I mean there's entertainment like choosing filmmakers level up by participating. I mean coppola. Godfather was just a picture and really. What if i made a great crime movie. No now. I get places. That's what i mean is calling. Khloe sows attorneys. Makes me think like oh. Maybe i should see that whereas when it's just the turtles in the trailer i saw part of me he's like no why but anyway My my my issues aside. I like this story. Because i feel like it. Shines going off jason's optimism earlier. If you like it's like this little break in the clouds. It's like a potential shining little ray of hope like especially after the story. We just did about going like all streaming and stuff. it's like maybe theaters. There's a moment this summer. Where i really felt like the theatrical model was even as dependent felt like it really lifted there in june july. A little bit right like i was still sort of like well. I don't think i'll take the kids to see jungle cruise in the theaters. Because i can just watch it at home right. And that's a bummer. Because i like the desire to go to the theaters. I like the exclusivity of it in the experience and the community. And i've said all these things million times. I'm sure many of you agree with me. Mike you guys and listening like we like theaters were movie people so the idea that disney is like maybe because schedule maybe because pandemic calming down but just like saying like no the theatrical exclusively for a while the model works we like it. We're going to do it. I think it's a good sign and it makes me hopeful which is a very uncommon for me to be but i think it's a good thing. It just makes me a little bit happier knowing that that. That's that's where we're headed. I love these things coming. When when when i was a kid i remember being like why does it take so long for it to be on. Vhs view like over a year right you can see it in. The theater of god knows when you would get to see it again. I like the idea that was streaming. It could be like a couple months. That's still great. But yes he was like forty five days is going to be the new average like after all then forty five days to streaming. Yeah i love that it means. There's an urgency. If you want to be part of the water cooler discussion if you wanna be or the slack threat. I guess these days of the text threat but like if you wanna be in on what what just happened. You go to the theater. It's great and then if you don't you'll see it when it's like it'll be available for you to see for everyone to see soon. I think it's a win win. What do you guys think. Think because of scar. Joe maybe i don't i don't know i i would be curious to know or dig into. Maybe how that will change their earnings. I wonder like if they're taking a really big loss doing that. Or if they think they're gonna make just as much money 'cause they're making billions of dollars off disney plus so it would be interesting to kind of dig into that at some point see. Are they gonna lose a bunch of money with this move or they just taking a hit to move exclusively theaters but overall i feel like i'm more excited to see more reasons theaters. I would rather always watch movies theaters. So i'm excited about that. I did the jungle thing where you had to pay a little more to get that weekend. Right and i think we talk about charles. What was the fruit was. Milan was the first one to do that. then it kinda crew ella did it and i think that it makes sense and to your point jo. Say they don't say they are taking a big loss making this choice. Maybe then what they do is they say. Hey it's in theaters for forty five days and it's an upsell on the platform then. It's just standard on the platform. Something like that. They're still going to be a lot of people who wanna go see it in theaters but less but if you have to pay more to watch it at home why not pay a little bit more than that and seeing theater like i like from my experience time i've done this jungle cruise face jams been a few times mostly kids movies. That's my life. But the times i've done this. I've always been like man. Look let's be on. These movies are a certain kind of movie. They're probably not really for me. But i thought this would have been better in the theater for what this is. This experience is a theater experience. It's not an at home like the jungle cruise for kids. The kids should have seen it in a theater. It's more memorable and unique and then even for me you know. Luckily i got to go to a couple of screenings of things this year. Finally in like. I think when you see things at theatre screening room it's significantly more impactful as an as of you're like the films i've s- i've seen for that green night a couple of others still like i remember coming out of stillwater. I think i sat on the podcasts. Like it was awesome and people were like what was like. Maybe i saw in the theater so it had a bigger impact on me. I don't know. I do think outlook obviously in the theater. You're not looking at your phone as much. There's are hopefully at all right. But i can't. I can't stop people in your attention. There it's the biggest screen the best sound hopefully to a correctly. Hopefully but i do think like at the end of the day like a big question for a lot of these. Movies is the idea of like look. georgie of. What a family of four paying thirty dollars to watch moulana at home significantly cheaper than paying looking los angeles what seventeen to twenty dollars. A ticket seeming on the big screen. But i do think like theaters need to figure out a way to come down in those prices and again look. I'm aware like middle. America and i went and saw When i saw once upon a time. In hollywood i saw it in minnesota at a theater. That was over nine bucks. That's different at different life But i do think cedar owners need to figure out a way to find a happy medium. Right so i don't want i. I can't be spending seventeen ninety five to see some of these things. And i'm like a single adult male in like we've gotta find a way to to make this a little bit more affordable especially with like you said these movies like like i watched Home and i thoroughly enjoyed it. And i don't know that would have changed if i had spent extra fifteen dollars to take my fiance to the amc to watch it in enemy and like it was just as good watching it with a pizza here and maybe it would have been and maybe it wouldn't have like look at crowd. That's fine i don't know but that's that's maybe something to debate. It's interesting look. I think the big thing to take from disney There's only three people that are doing this. You know there's Disney universal and sony. That are that are committed to theatrical releases for everything in. That's something that i think is going to change and look how committed is this. You know just earlier in the year. They weren't as committed as they are announced. So it's interesting to.

"Our top story. This week of a restructure at paramount is foot and we shall know about it. Paramount is one of the big Studios that are still left standing. And they've got their own streaming network paramount plus and jim. Gene apples is leaving paramount as chairman and ceo and getting replaced by. Brian robbins. Who comes from nickelodeon and was previously awesomeness tv. So you know. The players were studio presence. Come from is often fascinating. I mean there was a time. Where brad gray who was like. A mega manager at pearl street gray moved over to running paramount. So it's it's not always a you know your vp production. And then you're president of the studio often comes from strange places but like going from awesomeness tv to the head of paramount is kind of an awesome path. And i think it's really exciting for indie filmmakers. It's coming with a new strategy that Jason you wrote the article. Do you wanna talk a little bit about the new strategy that you you see coming here sherri you know right off the bat. I'm excited about brian robbins. Because when he was at awesomeness tv he bought my screenplay shovel buddies and produced it and debuted at south by south west. And then we put it on itunes so at the time that was kind of a weird in you know in quotes revolutionary thing right two straight to streaming was seen as something that was done like latvian action. Movies didn't get much release but This is johnny Like with a serious budget cool actors. Mice group is on the blacklist. It was splashy at the time and while we didn't make buckets of money Brian was seen as head of the game. And of course the movies he released afterward. All did make buckets of money. Get set the trend. What's interesting brian. Going to pay him out in general is sort of touched on charles. Which is that ascendancy from being a child actor in the nineties to becoming a movie director he directed varsity blues things than you know. Working your way up becoming the president of awesomeness tv really tapping into the digital aspect of things. Which i don't think a lot of people were talking about the time and streaming now working these streaming deals getting a deal. I think overall with universal then. Moving to nickelodeon where he produced bigger movies than now. Suddenly being the head of a studio the way. This changes paramount knows kind of like tenfold. While a lot of what robbins talked about was you know revolutionizing studio for the digital era rapes figuring out how to get more titles fairmount plus think this is going to be good for up and coming filmmakers because you know we call it like the streaming wars took paramount's trying to get more eyeballs on our network. I think they're trying to get to seventy five million subscribers on paramount plus twenty twenty four. I'm to get there you need more. Tv shows need more movies. You need more lack of better term unfortunately content of so there's gonna be a lot of opportunities for that student by and create things even if they are things that just go to their their digital platform or it could be a you know a situation where they're going to simultaneous release things in theaters and put them on digital. That's a big conversation. It also seems like again like this is all talking behind. The scenes of people are talking about them rebooting remaking. Every title is on the tape. You know paramount has this sort of deep catalogue of different titles. Who wants to come in and shake things up wants to do something different whether that's into tv series another theatrical franchise them but they're shifting away from ten pulse so the studio we saw doing things like transformers shifting more towards this sort of mid budget ideas things that don't cost as much not as big a risk but you know maybe there's way to revamp them for the current climate and to get people talking which is something. Bryant has always been good at something. I'm interested in watching him. Succeed at ear. Yeah i mean. I my take is is also that i feel like paramount made an aggressive shake things up kind of higher here or move to get younger in a little more disruptive innovative and go with somebody who has a relationship with the streaming content at a different level. And it's smart because you know they're in a street fight with these big behemoths like netflix and disney like crushing these this marketplace. In like. there's so much out there and everybody's putting out an hbo. Max which is warner like an end you know. Paramount is like like charles reference like their old guard like they go way back in being able to adjust. They have a great library. They have but like are they going to be able to is paramount plus like does anybody think about paramount plus as a platform and think about any particular projects or any original content or anything on their slate like it doesn't really have an identity right so i think this is a move to be like. Let's have an identity. Let's have a voice. Let's let's and and the good news like you said. Jason i think is it could mean opportunities for innovative content different kinds of creative voices and in style and maybe they're looking for that to fill their library. It's really interesting to hear you all talk about this so positively. 'cause i think it's an opportunity but i think designed guy since kind of fearful of what this means for movies or cinema. Whatever you wanna talk about as a whole like a lot of people on twitter are upset about this or thinking like oh this is the death of that old guard hollywood's dead so it's really interesting that that on our side we're kind of excited about it but a large people are seeing it as. Oh they're just trying to fill another streaming platform misses the the death arch. So it's kind of interesting looking. Okay george just going to say. I really liked that. You brought that up because i think that both things are true like i think that it's sort of like that's one of those like things. Get interesting to me when they're like that where there's like there is an upside and a downside the coexist here and like it's a great point that yet the model like what you identify as paramount like i personally think paramount's like the best lot i don't know why maybe it's because the big gate maybe it's just the vibe. Maybe it's robert evans. The ghost restaurants. The right like it's in the neighborhood a lot like is this. It just feels right. And i love it and i always associated with ariza of movies and big studio movies and i love going to cinna gear. They're being in those big stages but anyway nostalgia aside like this feels like a very aggressive choice to kind of move past that to the new frontier that is a digital age of of bite size. You know blah blah blah blah blah blah content and. I think that there is an upside and down right. But what were you gonna say jason. Yeah you know what. Here's the thing. I think that everything. Joe said is completely valid in. And it's something that we should bemoan right like. The loss of art is a tragedy within all of this. But you know to play the other hand and this is in no offensive paramount. Because i probably seen you know ninety nine percent and things they release. They weren't really known as the ark movie studio. You know like fairly like eight. Eight twenty four to paramount plus or something like that like i. Guess that would bummed out. But i don't think these major studios were taking those swings. We see a lot with this morning. Christopher nolan ripping his movies away from warner brothers and universal. It's like these big wars are finding the studios that will find their projects. It's just unfortunate. We're we're starting to lose the ability to become one of these big outdoors because of the sort of decision is students are making so it is too. I don't know how what you're i is. Art reduces aren't we never knew existed in the first place so that's the real tragedy here in the voices were going to get a navy are going to school by streaming which the you bring me like. But something exciting in the first minute. Do this do that. That maybe doesn't necessarily lend itself to.

Why Leaders Need to Get Better at Changing Their Minds with Adam Grant
"Guest. Today is adam grant. Adam is an organizational psychologist and a ted speaker who helps people find meaning and motivation at work. He's a bestselling author and he's also the host of worklife a great podcast. You should check out in his new book. Think again adam challenges us to slow down and stop doing an executing all the time and actually spend time thinking thinking about our business where it's going what problems we have to solve. Why is it that we have such a temptation to just stay on that treadmill of producing an executing and we never stop and make the time to think one is that whip rewarded for what we deliver right and it's sometimes hard to connect the dots between cardi. I've got a bunch of new ideas or a fresh perspective and and what that actually means for my small business. I think the the second thing is we get rewarded for doing things. The same way over and over again that gives us excellence of execution. It helps us build productive routines and then we get really comfortable in our best practices. And i think the danger of that of course is that we don't look around ask if there are better practices and i think what a lot of us end up doing. Is we think too. Much like preachers and prosecutors. When we're in the mindset of preachers were convinced. Where right when we're thinking like prosecutors were proving people who are challenging us wrong and that means we stop thinking flexibly and sometimes we fall into the trap of foolish consistency and we see this happen all the time with huge companies right. I don't think that that berry or blockbuster kodak or sears. Had any problem with doing right. They were great at executing. The problem was they were executing the things that made them great in the past and they missed out obviously on a bunch of digital disruption. Some of which was brought from the outside. But if you look at a kodak they actually pioneered digital imaging and then they said no. Our business model is selling film. Obviously that didn't work out very well for them. and i see the same dynamics. In small businesses pretty regularly where people are unwilling to rethink their strategies their products services on some of their practices that have driven their success in the past. And and that means sometimes we get trapped instability where we should be embracing change. I love the kodak example. Because in hindsight we can all see how they actually could have become instagram me. They were the market leader in photography. And had they been thinking this way. They could have shifted that and caused that revolution. Knowing what you know what you studied that goes into this book. Think again if you could go back and be a consultant into the executive team at kodak at that time what do you imagine they would have been saying that was keeping them entrenched in. And what would you tell them about how they were thinking and the opportunity that they would miss if they didn't change the way they fought that such an interesting question. Well i would have. I mean it would have been great to introduce them to the future of the internet. Talk to them about how we were. All going to be posting selfies. One day but i think long before that where i would have started would have been to talk to them a little bit about the fat cat syndrome right where we tend to rest on our laurels and get complacent when things are going really well. And that's the perfect time to shake things up because we have the resources and slack capacity to do it. And then i think the next thing that i probably would've done is i would have encouraged them to stop preaching that they were right. Stop prosecuting me for being wrong and instead think a little bit more like scientists daniel one of my all time favorite experiments was done recently with small business owners in italy. So they're all pre revenue. They're taking a three to four month. Crash course in hottest start and run a business. They all get the exact same training and education. What they don't know is that half of them have been randomly assigned just to think like scientists in the way that they build and run their businesses. They're told your strategies just theory. Go do customer interviews to develop some specific hypotheses and then when you launch her first product or service. That's just an experiment to test your hypotheses and it turns out that group that's just encouraged to think like scientists over the next year they bring in on average more than forty times the revenue of the control group which is a stunning effect. Right and the major reason why they're so successful when they think scientists is that there are more than twice as likely to pivot they. They run their their first product. Launch or service launch and. it doesn't work and instead of doubling down. They say you know what i guess. I learned that my theory was wrong. Or hypotheses. didn't work in this market or a need to rethink my minimum viable product. And i would have encouraged kodak to do the same thing. I would've said okay. You all are great scientists when it comes to figuring out how to process film and build a camera. Why don't you apply that same. Ab testing that you normally do with products to your strategy to the kinds of products that you create to how you run your company and let's just let's try the digital camera. You have the technology what's going to happen if we roll it out instead of waiting for a couple dozen get rolled out first and then saying lips. It's too late. What are the hallmarks of thinking like a scientist that we don't see when you're thinking like prosecutor or a preacher who i don't think you have to own a microscope or telescope writer even a lab coat thinking like a scientist to may just means you favor humility over pride and curiosity over conviction. That means you know what you don't now and you're excited to discover things that might actually teach you a fresh perspective or you know an area of expertise that you don't currently have access to and one of the things that scientists do best at least good scientists right sometimes. Even scientists don't think like scientists but good scientists is is somebody who says i'm knocking to let my ideas become my identity right. I'm not going to start to define myself as as the kind of person who only leads a certain way. Or i won't define us is the kind of business that only does one thing and i think that flexibility is is a huge part of what allows the scientific thinking mindset to allow small business owners to continue adapting and not only responding to change the world but actually creating
Interview With Shane Balkowitsch
"Well hello everyone and welcome to another podcast from frames magazine my name is scott olsen and today we are going old school and we are going deep into a really really wonderful type of photography. That's not practice very much anymore and really frankly when you see it. It's going to knock your socks off. We're talking with shane belkevich. Shane happens to live just a couple hours. West of me out here on the great plains of north america up north dakota chain that afternoon. How's everything out in the middle part of the state. good scott. thanks for having me on. We've got a little snow last night. Which was a very welcomed. Got a little snow over here. It's cold it's january is imagine about winner on the american that should be asked should be. You're absolutely right shane. You are just absolutely mesmerizing with the work. You're doing you do wet plate colin on photography. You do when one of the earliest styles of photography and admit you know. When i first heard about it i thought why in the world would anyone want to go through that amount of work for an image that i can do in my mirrorless. Dsl are very quickly. And then i realized how wrong. I was can't do that image and i certainly can't come up with a product that you've come up with so first question for people that that are familiar with the process. What is wet plate photography. What is the whole call it on process. Yeah so a wet plate clothing. Photography's invented by frederick scott archer in. He started working on about eighteen. Forty eight we believe in eighteen fifty one. He came out with a journal article in a scientific journal and presented it to the world. So what we're doing. I'm sure many of your listeners. Know about daguerreotype process which was invented by the declare. The frenchman About ten years. Before what plaguing frederick scott archer wanted to improve on that and This is what he came up with and the final product. And what your comment about why. You can't capture wet played in a modern a digital camera. Is that this is completely analog and the final images the images that i make. I an amber typist. That means i make my photographs on glass specifically for me black glass and these images are made out a pure silver on glass. And what's about silver silver does not degrade so these images that i have Have made over the last eight years of made a three eight hundred of them all by ten most most eight by ten black last amber types of they'll be here thousand years from now broken which which is not something you can save for princeton pigments in paintings and other things like that so the these are very archival images and i. it's just a very very romantic process. i was never photographer before. A two thousand twelve took my first exposure on october. Fourth never owned a camera. And i just find myself chasing this this historic process. It is really really interesting and we need to tell people that there is a movie out. There is called belkevich b. a. l. k. o. w. i t. s. c. h. on video. It's on amazon. Prime it is a documentary about you and your work and folks. You need to go there. You need to watch this film if you are in the any kind of photography. You need to do this but shane one of the things. That really intrigued me. Watching the film is that most of us that are in the photography files were making digital files. Or you know. We're coming up even if we're still dealing with old thirty five millimeter film or that kind of stuff Medium format film. You know we come up with a negative but then you know actual print is a temporary thing. You much more like a sculptor are making an object's this glass plate and it's not revisable you can't go back and tweak the highlights you can't go back and ask grain if you want. What is the appeal of making that object versus a kind of idea. We have to understand most web play. Cloudy and artists There was one here in bismarck. North dakota orlando scott gough. When he he was known for capturing the first ever photograph of sitting. Bull here bismarck. In the in this process that i practice and i i happen to capture ernie lapointe the great grandson. The city hundred thirty five years later in the same town in the same process but goth would have made a negative like you had said he would make a glass of so instead of putting his images onto black glass which you cannot contact with. He would have used clear glass. Clear glass as you insinuated. You can make multiple copies and you can enter. The final product in that scenario is a print. Because you want to be able to sell you know apprentice shayna print scott where wants to print you can make as many prints of these want is your business and it. Did you know good to have a one off plate because you and you know when you're talking about eighteen fifty one is no way of duplicate and they didn't have scanners and we couldn't do anything like that so you know. I think there's something very special about the the fact that these images are one offs and they can never be duplicated in they can never be replicated. When i make one of these images. I've for instance. I've dropped an image once and tried to go five minutes later. Ten minutes later tried to make this image with the same sitter the same camera. The same lenses saint chemistry. And i can never get back to that so if you look at this romantically. I'm not actually taking snapshots people actually making ten second movies. I'm still life movies. Because my exposures in my natural studio that i built here in bismarck. It's called nostalgic glassware plate studio the first one in in the country bill of the ground up and over a hundred years. I'm making ten second exposure. So there's heartbeats and there's blood flowing through the person there's a couple. Maybe a blinker to and what. I really love about this is. Maybe there's a thought so. I'm capturing thought on that piece of glass pure silver. That'll be here on.

"Yale mit for publishing this report. I have a donation kit for the care. Free shipping found film cameras. I guess we have a lot of recycle reuse and repurposing. Today show though we that's okay. It's a good thing right. It's a good thing if while you're around the house and we're all around the house more than ever. Now you get to that back closet where you have a couple of film cameras from the days of your showy say and You're not using them. You don't plan on using them and you wanna find a good home for them. You want to get them in the hands of so and that's going to use them. I can help you with that I've been repurposing fixing up cleaning testing and then getting back out there to people who are looking for film cameras. A lot of times They're artists la times there Young photographers who are looking for a little different. Look than what they can get with digital cameras. Sometimes it students. You're wanting to buy their first film camera and they wanna make sure they get a good one and our site has a very great reputation for delivering quality. Use phone cameras so it could be any number of those things and then other things that i'm not even thinking about you can help with that by donating a camera. I'll get it fixed up. I'll get it working well and get it in the hands of someone who actually use it. You get it out of your closet. You help support our community and you get a film. Karen the hands of someone. That's looking for something quality that they might have a much harder time figuring out how to do on ebay..
Apple Mac bringing back the SD card
"Starting to look like this. Next mac book pro is gonna be the mac book. Where sorry is gonna be the mac book. We were wrong because we already talked about the fact that there maybe probably moving away from the touch bar. We already know the fact. They went to an older style keyboard design. Yesterday we talked about or maybe two days ago that they were going to go back to having a mag safe connector. Today's report we're gonna put an st card in there s the card reader so this was a long experiment for them. You know what it was. Well let me tell you what happened. They let everybody go and buy the minimalist design figured out how much they missed having features so that now in this one comes out and gives them all the features back they rush out like crazy real quick to pick those up. So it's our fault right. Yeah i blame you really do. Yeah i card reader. How nice would it be. Just having st carburetor. Maybe they do some even crazier and put an hdmi port and now just fantastic. Let's not get good type stuff. We're asking for here analyst. Ming cheek will outline his expectations for the new fourteen inch and sixteen inch macbook pro models. Coming later this year with the mag makes a charging connector the removal of the touch bar a new flat edge design and a return of more ports built into notebook for expanded connectivity. I mean i'm so sick. Docs and i'm so sick of dogle today on the macbook air. I watched mo- have to pull out the docking station and everything else. He was tangled up in wire. He had wires because he needed to as the and he wanted to connect an ethernet. And i don't think we're going to eastern at jack on here but still so the next s the card Part of it comes from bloomberg's mark gurman the upcoming macbook pros and example of apple's renewed focus on mac loyalists. The company is planning to bring back in sd card slot for the next macbook pro so users can insert memory cards from digital cameras. Yeah that's what you do with an s. d. card slot. The feature was removed all the way back in two thousand sixteen hundred twenty one. Now this is kind of unlike apple but who knows you never know what they're gonna do remember when they went for the trash can mac pro for example and then they completely backed off the next time around They there were some issues. People wished that they had more ability to upgrade that device switch out. Gp's and things that they wanted a traditional design and so apple went right back to the tower the regular style tower. So i think it's the right move. I don't think. I think if you had you had a plan and things didn't really pan out then that's fine. You know you admit it and you move on this trash can was kinda cute but it just wasn't ready for prime time. We have the rumor that the next model could be a little cube but that they're probably going to keep the full-sized towers as an option. But this is about the macbook pros and the two thousand fifteen macbook pro. Not only did it have an st card reader. It also had in hdmi port. And you're be ports. Which i know. This is the kind of stuff that you're most. Pleasant drinks are filled with. Well the sweet sweet for all kinds of sports. The we'll see what happens but this is a nice little touch here. I know
Why Now Is the Time for Infrared Photography
"I have one two three walks. That i take daily in every time i head out the door. I have a camera with me hoping to capture something new and unique. These walks important because my jobs as a photographer have all been crushed by the virus. And i haven't traveled for work since march twenty twenty so each day. I hope to see something new to record and possibly share with others in lately each day. I've been disappointed. So one of my friends herald is a big fan of infrared photography and he's shown me a lot of different things that you can do with it to go beyond what i've dabbled with the years so i go all right. This is kind of exciting. So i decided to revisit. What's happening in. I are and to tell you the truth. What's going on right now. Blew my mind. It did in the me excited about my daily walks again now. The big leap that i took this time. And i'm gonna talk about a pun intended the full spectrum of photography In a few minutes here because you can start versus simply. I done that. And it's very satisfying and then there are more options and more options more options and each time you go to that next set of options everything gets a bit more exciting but in the beginning any of it is exciting. Believe especially compared to probably which you've been doing or haven't been doing lately the big leap that i took was guinea my hands on a olympics. Emt mark three that had been converted to full spectrum by kalari vision now. Kalari vision is a company There about three companies. You know three big name companies. That are doing these infrared. Conversions and kalari vision is my favorite of the three. I have a camera by them. I've talked with them. I mean these are terrific folks and they really know what they're doing and all you have to do is click on the link in the site and you can go over there in you know read All sorts of background information really understand what's going on with infrared photography learn about all the filters learn about all the cameras you know by converted cameras. Get your camera converted. I mean it just goes on. And on and i'll go into more of that right now but when i referred to kalari vision that is the company that is doing the work you know for the gear that i'm using and they provide the filters that i use with that gear so getting this ten mark three converted to full spectrum camera just opened up this whole new world for me beyond what i had experienced before with. Ira photography because by using different filters a different points in the wavelength I was able to create completely different effects for example now on i take those daily walks over familiar territory which i'm doing still right because things haven't really changed to tell you the truth. It's like i'm in a different world each day on monday. I can shoot with a seventy two filter for stunning. I are black and white photography and then on tuesday take the same walk with the i. r. chrome filter and get something completely different this delicious world of complimentary oranges in blues. So every day is new. Thanks to photography. And now i'm excited. I'm excited i'm excited to go on the walk. I'm excited thinking about okay. How am i going to approach today. And because you don't know how certain things are going to look until you actually look at them through the camera. It's like this adventure in. You have like this magic set of glasses to unlock the view into this different world. And sometimes i'm very surprised but what i see. Sometimes you can kind of anticipate a little bit. What you're gonna see but every time it is then fresh and exciting. Now this backup a little bit on you know getting started with. I are so you can start small and ease into i r or go big with the converted camera and then you know there's like lots of options in between what i'm going to do now is give you five helpful tips about. I are photography to help you. Kinda shape your approach right now anyway and then you can plot your path forward after that but kind of help you figure out where to start right now with this if you are indeed interested in it. Here's the first thing you can test an existing camera for i our sensitivity. Some cameras just right out of the box are more sensitive to the i. R. part of the spectrum then other cameras. Which is you know the i parts of the higher end of the spectrum. I have like for instance one of those. It is a older fuji film. X twenty is just a regular x twenty s a little Range finder camera. That will super popular when it was out because it was small enough to put in your pocket but you know it packed some really nice kind of professional level features in it so. I've always liked this camera. In fact i believe it was the first fujifilm's digital camera i own so one of the delights with this camera is that it also has pretty decent i are sensitivity
interview With Thomas Bienert
"Well hello everyone and welcome to another podcast from frames magazine. My name is scott olsen. And today i am thrilled. I am really excited to talk to thomas. Thomas has a long and distinguished career in photography is a very active member of the frames community. And i am looking forward to this conversation. Thomas good morning hi scott. I should tell everybody that as we're recording this i am sitting in the mid west of the united states and you are in germany. How is photography life and covid and life in germany these days. yes. I think like most of the countries. It's a much more difficult to work as much more difficult. Because you have to take care of yourself take care of the people you work with. So we're all happy when we're through with that. I think we are all looking forward. I think there's to be an explosion of taga fy once the vaccine comes out and we can start moving around again. I'm going to tell everybody something from your website here in describing who you are mean. I'm just gonna read what you wrote. Because i think this is wonderful. You say that you grew up between cow pastures and potato fields in the lower rhine. You studied visual communication and the cosmopolitan city of krefeld as a designer. When miami vice was still a television series showing your age there. Thomas you have sold herbal liquor. Lipsticks and bank loans as creative director in an advertising firm and you have painted drawn written composed made music filmed and photographed and photographed and photographed. You say that inbetween you've been happily married helped to children improve the world and always made art in your head. I think that is just fantastic. Thomas before we get into your work which for many reasons. I find personally compelling tell me how you got started. Tell me about you know being a five year old with your first camera or however this came into your life. My father worked as a painter so he painted houses not not an art painter but he wanted to be an artist but so he didn't make it so he was but he was always interested in photography and he had an old camera which had damaged light meter and he'd tried to tell me how to take pictures. And as i do not get it. How i don't know The aperture and the shutter speed and you have to look at how the sun is is bright. It's aperture number eight something. I learned it by this. Because it's all it was all analog and it was all with film there was no digital Help at this camera end was very funny to receive the first photographs. You open the box and you have nearly ninety percent of that was crap to large. I learned the hard way. I'm really happy now to to work with digital cameras really. Oh absolutely but what is it about photography. That was appealing to you. Way back then. When i was young i didn't know it was just just the fun about it. What i found out later. Is that as i worked for many many years in advertising and i have a great knowledge about making films and conception of making films and we're thinking about music and all this what you need to make good commercial but there's not one thing that can capture emotion in a part of a second that is photography no music if you take music if you reduce it to just a part of a second. It will not get any emotion. The same with with film photography can can do it. You take you slice the time into a part of a second and you see a picture ended it catches you and this is what i found so interesting to find the right moment to to to something. Visualize that is maybe sometimes not all the time but sometimes it's only there for the pot of of a second that's amazing it's like magic.

"Up with in terms of mobile device digital new workshop integrating iphone into a pro photography workflow. This is going to be the hands on detail. Part of what else is talking about in the first segment in other words. How duly best shoot raw with an iphone. How do we integrate apple pro. Raw into a photography workflow that complements our digital camera. When do we reach for the digital camera. When do we reach for the iphone. So let me give you some of the bullet points from this event us coming up at the beginning of february. And then we're going to have the grand finale end of february here so the bullet points working with just one digital camera iphone like we've been talking about taking advantage of a versatile fast prime lens on your digital camera in using the iphone for additional focal lengths perfecting a raw workflow for the iphone and that is either with an iphone. Ten iphone eleven iphone twelve or twelve pro with apple pro era. You know we'll talk about all those different options. But we're really going to dig into leveraging apple pro raw for those that have an iphone twelve pro building a kit that allows you to travel wider without compromising capability post processing tips and techniques using photos on a mac ipad iphone investigating other software in workflows to augment. Your imaging prowess this is going to be so fun. I'm telling you yeah. We're going to have a blast and we're gonna do it The way that.

"X one hundred v. I get inspired. When i shoot with these. I wanna hold them. I wanna go take pictures. I don't have that same sort of inspiration with my smartphone I love it. It's great but i don't look at it and go man. I gotta go take some pictures with this bad boy right. That doesn't happen. It's a more utilitarian than that. Paneth's excellent hundred v in. Your favourite camera are inspiring the make us want to go shoot and then finally. The option of interchangeable lenses help us meet a variety of photo opportunity. So if. I'm shooting with a pen. F one day. I might wanna go out with a seventeen millimeter. F one eight the next day. I may want to go out with a forty five millimeter. F one eight neither one of them a whole lot of room relatively compact but it kind of sets the tone for. I'm gonna shoot that day so it's nice having that option of putting whatever i want on the camera now the x one hundred v. It's not that it's the thirty five millimeter f two. And that's the way she wrote. Okay that's great too. I could also take the xfl ten with the twenty eight millimeter. If i want to go that route. I like having those different auctions digital cameras when you start listing it out. They have a lot of pluses smartphones. Of course have their advantages to first of all. They are ultra compact. I mean we typically have one of these in our pocket at all times. That's a plus. They tend to be more adept at computational photography helping us overcome technical challenges in computational photography definitely has its place in our shooting. There are times when you don't have time to figure out all the right settings and everything you just want to get the shot. It's happening now in you. Wanna shoot it now. That's where smartphones really shine. Because they put all that processing power behind what you're doing and chances are you will come away with a pretty good shot. Cellular and wi fi connective are wildly useful smartphones. So not only can you capture you can also share and you have all these other communication options along with that mobile imaging apps that we can run on. These devices are quite powerful and have become more useful as screens have grown larger. So you have light room on your phone. You have photos for on your phone. You have all these cool apps on the phone right there in the field or wherever you happen to be. Smartphones are ubiquitous and they don't attract unwanted attention in sensitive situations so if you're in a street photography situation you really want to shot maybe leave your digital camera in his pouch. Pull out your smartphone and take the shot that way because people don't seem to care when you're shooting with a smartphone unless it's a really a sensitive situation and then of course you have to use common sense but i get into trouble far lesser. I wouldn't say trouble. I have far fewer conversations about my photography sheeting with a smartphone as compared to my digital camera now smartphones. These days can house up to three prime lenses in a single device so that's very versatile so instead of having three is you have to put into a camera bag and bring them around. You can just have one smartphone that fits in your pocket with three distinct prime lenses on them. That's pretty cool. And then of course. Smartphones can provide an instant cloud backup of your images that is really helpful super helpful. And if something happens if you if you lose your device then you don't lose your images and that's very comforting so a lot of advantages there as well now. What if we take these two things. This is really a chocolate and peanut butter situation here and we combine a well-specified smartphone with one of our favourite nimble cameras. What are the benefits by doing that. Well there are a few for sure. First of all you don't have to carry extra lenses and assessories so the iphone twelve pro. Max in my case has a twenty six millimeter f. One six prime sixty five millimeter f. Two point four telephoto thirteen millimeter. F two point four ultra wide lens. So i don't have to carry any of lenses with me. I have them in my smartphone. So if i combine that with say the thirty five millimeter f two on the fuji film. Excellent hundred being or the thirty four millimeter f. One eight prime on the pen f. I have a full kit. I truly have cake and eat it as well. Now when i say thirty four millimeter if one eight on the pen f. I mean the seventeen millimeter right. I'm talking about effective focal lengths. Here another advantage to having both of them. I can process an upload images from anywhere so i can connect in my case the iphone with the x one hundred v in that gives me a powerful work station in the field. You know i can stream the images from one device to the other do a little bit of editing work on them crop. Whatever happened to be and then move those images on to the next place wherever they happen to be in the cloud on a social network site in a blog post to a friend wherever they need to go. But the whole thing can happen. When i have both ends of this workflow. I had the camera which i may or may not have taken the original shot with and then i have the smartphone which i may or may not have used it but then i had the connective in the applications on the smartphone to go to the next step speaking of applications smartphones are infinitely versatile when it comes to software. That's immediately downloadable. So let's say that. I wanna do something different and in the field. I have my camera. Have my smartphone. And i want to do some hdr okay. I don't really like the way that my digital camera processes. Hdr in camera. But i know. I can get this really cool app in the field for my smartphone. That does job. That i like a little bit better. I download it. I do the hdr shoot and then i'm off to the next thing. That is a nice option to have. And that's just one of many many examples now when you think about it. Smartphones are high value purchases when you compare them to comparable cameras and smartphones. Do feel expensive especially the high end ones that were interested in because of the better photography components but for example the iphone twelve pro. Max is about the same price as the fujifilm x one hundred v comparable there and even if you buy them both brand new right now. You have a complete kit for about twenty eight hundred dollars now. You can spend that much on. Just one lens for nikon mirrorless full frame or sony or any of the other cameras out there. So i think when you really.

"So much talk about how smartphones will replace our digital cameras. But i think for nimble photographers. That's the wrong approach instead. Let's explore how we can use smartphones with our digital cameras instead of replacing them. I'll share one scenario today with a fujifilm x one hundred v in iphone. Twelve pro max. Although there are many combinations that will work great for both ios and android and of course on the digital camera side as well. I hope you enjoy the show. They're certainly situations. When i want my digital camera with all its tools inconveniences and then other situations when my smartphone will work. Just fine but to tell you the truth. The best scenario is having both with me. And that's what. I want to explore today now on the digital camera side when i discovered is that if i go with smaller more compact cameras which shouldn't be a shock to you right the fujifilm x one hundred v the olympus pen f the fujifilm x f. Ten with the twenty eight millimeter f. Two point eight lands those kinds of cameras that i absolutely love shooting with. But i don't want to carry all the accessories and everything you know. That's the funny thing about digital photography you can start out with a relatively compact camera and then maybe a compact lens and then you start packing your bags and go. I really should bring this. And i really should bring that. I need a longer lens. I need a wider lens. I probably should have a flash all that kind of stuff. Maybe i should bring my ipad. Maybe i should bring you know my Laptop maybe i should bring all the stuff in the next thing you know even though you started out with a relatively compact camera ended up with a relatively large camera kip. And if you're just going out the door for a walk you're going to. Maybe you know go visit a local park. If you're going to do something like that. Do you really need to bring all that stuff with you. Well i mean at the end of the day. That's a question that only you can answer. However i'm going to pose an approach that maybe you want to think about. That is a very nice alternative to starting out with a small camera and ending up with a big kit now the idea. I'm going to present to you. Today is taking one of your favourite microphone. Thirds are a pse cameras that you truly like. It could be a relatively compact a photo frame mirrorless as well if especially if it had A lens on it. That was reasonable in size and then augmenting it with a smartphone and especially one of the more current smartphones made by all the heavy hitters but especially smartphones at least two cameras you know two lenses and ideally three cameras or three lenses now the idea being that that smartphone can fill in the gaps that normally would be stuffing stuff into your camera bag to fulfill. And then you get to pick a camera that you truly like with lens that you absolutely love but are not worried about being limited by just having that one camera in that one lens with you you know you have like your favorite thing to shoot with just go. I love shooting with his camera. I love this lind's and then you have your sophisticated smartphone in your other pocket. That will allow you to leave everything else behind. Just your favourite camera just your smartphone and see how far you can go well. The fact of the matter is through my testing. You can go pretty far so what i'm gonna do right now is i. I'm going to start out. With listing some of the benefits of digital cameras. These are the things that i like about a digital camera. This is why. I will not give up a digital camera right and then i'm going to list some of the advantages of smartphones because they have many advantages as well and then i'm going to do is for the third list. I'm going to combine the two and say this is the dan of using both of these devices already so that is going to be the flow of this show. So let's start out with the list of benefits for digital cameras and for me. There are many the first thing that i like is that they typically have great viewfinders. That are so nice in so many different situations. In of course bright sunlight being at the top of the list so if i can look through a very nice electronic viewfinder a very nice optical viewfinder in compose a shot in really contrast bright conditions. I like that better than having to compose the lcd now. There are times when i love composing often. Lcd in lower light. When i went different angles all that kind of stuff. And even then i think digital cameras often have an advantage because they have an articulated or a tilting. Lcd so that you can have the lens at one angle in the lcd at another angle. You can't do that with your iphone. It's you know whatever angle you're putting your lens that that's the angle that the viewfinder is so his up over your head shooting down on something right. You're not gonna have a very good look at that viewfinder unless you do something. Tricky so digital cameras are really great. When it comes to viewfinders you have a lot of options. And they work well in just about any lighting conditions. Another thing that i like is i camera. Companies have years of color technology under their belt. And sometimes some very unique knowledge for example in one of my favorite example are fujii's film simulation. They take all that knowledge they have from making film for all those years. Provia velveeta you know all of those emotions and they give us film simulations with that color science built in so that we can shoot with that. Now i dig shooting with my iphone but when i go to filters on my iphone. It's abysmal is. I do not like the filters at all. They seem very basic to me. In especially compared to what i can get with my digital camera and that also includes my olympus. That has some beautiful stuff in it okay. Years of color science really applied in a very sophisticated way definitely a plus for digital cameras. Larger sensors make it easier to control depth of field. I was looking at some shots. So he took on sunday morning with the iphone twelve. And i've just noticed the stream depth of that they had you know this is like trees way off in the background. We're sharp will. Sometimes i want that. But sometimes i do not and i just think it's easier to control depth of field for a larger variety of shots not just portrait with a camera that has a little larger sensor in the land designed for different types of applications rather be portraits or landscape or macro. Whatever it happens be so. I like that advantage. Also i would say another plus with digital cameras is. It's nice not to have your photo shoot interrupted by text message or a phone call right when you're using one device for everything you're using one device or everything and so there you are. You're in the au guys just right. Then ring ring ring. You're getting a phone call while you're ready to capture the decisive moment digital cameras. Don't bug us that way. They're all about taking pictures and nothing else now. They also have more megapixels generally speaking in larger photo sites. that does come in handy in certain situations. I'm gonna talk about computational photography for smartphones and so yes low light they can hang with the best of them because of computational photography but larger photo sites and more megapixels comes in handy for a variety of situations not just low light. Many digital cameras are quite beautiful and inspiring to us again. My lips pen..

I really should bring this. And i really should bring that. I need a longer lens. I need a wider lens. I probably should have a flash all that kind of stuff. Maybe i should bring my ipad. Maybe i should bring you know my <hes>. Laptop maybe i should bring all the stuff in the next thing you know even though you started out with a relatively compact camera ended up with a relatively large camera kip. And if you're just going out the door for a walk you're going to. Maybe you know go visit a local park. If you're going to do something like that. Do you really need to bring all that stuff with you. Well i mean at the end of the day. That's a question that only you can answer. However i'm going to pose an approach that maybe you want to think about. That is a very nice alternative to starting out with a small camera and ending up with a big kit now the idea. I'm going to present to you. Today is taking one of your favourite microphone. Thirds are a pse cameras that you truly like. It could be a relatively compact a photo frame mirrorless as well if especially if it had <hes>. A lens on it. That was reasonable in size and then augmenting it with a smartphone and especially one of the more current smartphones made by all the heavy hitters but especially smartphones at least two cameras you know two lenses and ideally three cameras or three lenses now the idea being that that smartphone can fill in the gaps that normally would be stuffing stuff into your camera bag to fulfill. And then you get to pick a camera that you truly like with lens that you absolutely love but are not worried about being limited by just having that one camera in that one lens with you you know you have like your favorite thing to shoot with just go. I love shooting with his camera. I love this lind's and then you have your sophisticated smartphone in your other pocket. That will allow you to leave everything else behind. Just your favourite camera just your smartphone and see how far you can go well. The fact of the matter is through my testing. You can go pretty far so what i'm gonna do right now is i. I'm going to start out. With listing some of the benefits of digital cameras. These are the things that i like about a digital camera. This is why. I will not give up a digital camera right and then i'm going to list some of the advantages of smartphones because they have many advantages as well and then i'm going to do is for the third list. I'm going to combine the two and say this is the dan of using both of these devices already so that is going to be the flow of this show. So let's start out with the list of benefits for digital cameras and for me. There are many the first thing that i like is that they typically have great viewfinders. That are so nice in so many different situations. In of course bright sunlight being at the top of the list so if i can look through a very nice electronic viewfinder a very nice optical viewfinder in compose a shot in really contrast bright conditions. I like that better than having to compose the lcd
Using Your Smartphone with Your Digital Camera, Not Instead of It
"Today's theme is using your smartphone with your digital camera. Not instead of it. I'm derek story. There's been so much talk about how smartphones will replace our digital cameras. But i think for nimble photographers. That's the wrong approach instead. Let's explore how we can use smartphones with our digital cameras instead of replacing them. I'll share one scenario today with a fujifilm x one hundred v in iphone. Twelve pro max. Although there are many combinations that will work great for both ios and android and of course on the digital camera side as well. I hope you enjoy the show. They're certainly situations. When i want my digital camera with all its tools inconveniences and then other situations when my smartphone will work. Just fine but to tell you the truth. The best scenario is having both with me. And that's what. I want to explore today now on the digital camera side when i discovered is that if i go with smaller more compact cameras which shouldn't be a shock to you right the fujifilm x one hundred v the olympus pen f the fujifilm x f. Ten with the twenty eight millimeter f. Two point eight lands those kinds of cameras that i absolutely love shooting with. But i don't want to carry all the accessories and everything you know. That's the funny thing about digital photography you can start out with a relatively compact camera and then maybe a compact lens and then you start packing your bags and go.

What to Do About All Those Digital Photos?
"Digital photos pilot faster than leads in autumn in. Today's show is dedicated to getting them bagged up in organized. We're going to rake up this job from two angles using common sense organizing techniques and a dash of artificial intelligence. I'm so glad you're here. I hope you enjoy this show. So i thought okay. End of the year We're kind of getting our act together trying to get our act together in so many different ways a lot of us are working on our homes are parts are living spaces. We're trying to clean up some messes at work. Get ready for what we hope to be. An exciting and productive twenty twenty one now one of the areas that always needs work for folks that. Listen to this. Podcast is our digital photo library. That's right because you know the thing would be. If we stop taking pictures we would stop adding to the problem. And what does that problem. Of course that problem is what to do with all those digital photos. None of us are going to stop taking pictures. So we gon ago about this a different way so i have a guest To start out the show today is isabel. And she's terrific and she has some wonderful ideas about some of getting your arms around your digital photo library and maybe how to approach it so that works best for you and i think that's the main thing because there's no one right way to do this. It depends on what your needs are how much time you have which your priorities are all that good stuff and i think that is the place that isabel is coming from. So let's turn it over to this conversation that she and i just recently had and then when we come back. I'm going to talk a little bit about this free or affordable depending on if you have ten dollars or not a organizing tool to also help us with this process. So we're going to have a little bit of isabel common wisdom in a little bit of machine learning we're gonna roll it all up and hopefully they come out with a better handle on our digital photo library already. Here's isabel isabel. Welcome to the show. Tell us a little bit about yourself. I- derek i I have been an illustrator for most of my life. And i did this cisco i came back to new york into southern food and up to seven eight and i was kind of disaster and i realized i wanted to do something because i was doing less work in editorial illustration and i just moved all might photos and i had to sought my photos and i realized i needed to learn iphoto to put things in order so all my cow chaos. I kind of organized it. And then i did this for of people. And then i realized what this is kind of the same thing that i do with illustration is i tell stories i. I work with colors at work with humor in shapes in this. I'm not. This is fun to do an hubbard if i do this with other people. And that's what i started to do. And that's what. I do now some of the things that you've learned not only with your own photos but you know working with other people in terms of us not only organizing our photo library but standing are photo library understanding what we have and you know what what is important and maybe what isn't as important but maybe we hang onto anyway can so let's start with the serve understanding our photos and then we'll talk a little bit about organizing them as well sure. Okay so is interesting because things have changed so much so now i could work with someone and their pictures starts from the two thousand right. Some people had a digital camera. Right away i could have a family and their kids the only have digital pictures and then there's nothing printed in the meantime we have the iphone and the iphone to kind of change everything or android or any kind of that you have which means that we use the phone as a notebook and we use the phone very differently that the way we were using digital camera so we ended up with so many photos that are. I would say if unroll photos. We don't need for the future and lots of screenshot soak when everything gets mixed up in one place. It kind of creates problems so we have a lot of junk photos that maybe we need to clean up and then we have everything that is every day moment in the big moments of the lives that we used to take the camera and do film with them so we have a lot of things that maybe don't belong together but we have the photos in chronological order. We need to do something about it. So i feel like once you understand that you kind of realize okay. I have twenty years of photos. Maybe maybe fifteen years maybe ten years but it's like life is can be a big mess.
5 Things Photographers Wonder About and Sometimes Debate
"Know it's funny. The things that just sort of come into your mind sometimes, and yes, we have Google and a lot of times we use Google. But the thing about Google is that you don't really have a relationship with Google, in the sense, there's any predictability about what Google is going to say, and the analogy that I like to use our film critics and film critics are interesting to me because when you find a film critic that has similar tastes to yours then that film critic becomes really valuable because he or she then you know has opinions that that more often than not you know you're going to like or see eye to eye with. So it's not like you just you know on Google is like you get all film critics. All film critics all over the map. And some of them you know may have the same sort of tastes that you do and some may not, and there's really no way to know, and that's kind of the cool thing when you get to hang out with someone or you have a friendship with somebody. who sort of sees things the way that you do and in photography that can be particularly useful because as you bounce ideas off them, they're just not gonna go off all over them. Happy. You know you go. Well, what should I use? You Know Light Room or you know? Capture one pro and they go I think you should never use anything at all. And you go. Well well, I have to use something. No finder based is the best way to go and you're just going. This is totally not useful. Not Useful. I. Need. So on that sort of understands that a photo management application is useful at least as a starting point. The reason, why bring all of this up is that with all the advantages that we have with online life these days, there are still a lot of little gaps gaps where you go man I just. I just wish Google understood me I just wish Alexa. Understood me. So that she would give me some sort of answer that came close to the way that I see the world. Now that sort of a long winded way for me to say some of these questions that they have here. I'm sure you have asked yourself before you know sure that you've just Kinda gone in your mind. Well, you know are they you know Blah Blah Blah and then kind of look it up and you get all sorts of different things in some point you go. I don't. I kinda the same spot I was before and you still may be in the same spot that you were before with these after I talk about them. But at least we'll have fun doing it right in that. Okay. There's something to be said for that. All right. So I have five things here that SORTA come up. and. They're fun to deal with in the world of photography. And sometimes it's really helpful to have a sounding board for these things and I'm going to start with the first one are generic batteries okay to use. And are they as good as the ones sold by manufacturers at twice the price in any of us who shoot with digital cameras, which probably is all of us know this scenario when you buy the digital camera, you get a battery and it's made by the manufacturer or at least it has the manufacturers labelling on it. In the manufacturers, very clear about these are the only batteries that should go in your camera because otherwise who knows it may start you know catching on fire or go up in pufus smoke or The meter may suddenly give you odd readings and things like that odd things that you just don't know. And my experience has been with third party batteries and generally speaking I use a Watson for my batteries that are not made by the manufacturer and I've had great luck with them I use them in Olympus Cameras, use them Fuji Cameras, use them in Nikon cameras. The reason why I use them is because they cost a lot less in my experience has been that they last as long and they perform as well and I have yet to have a problem with any of these batteries in the sense that my camera did not perform the way that I expected it to have not had any of those issues at all. So right now, in fact, I have in the other room I have a double chargers, a Watson charge of double charger with removable plates. I can charge two batteries at the same time and I can charge all sorts of different types of batteries because each little plate that costs whatever six, five, six dollars. allows me to fit a specific camera battery in it, and when you're sewing like me, that's always having different cameras and stuff in in the mix This is really helpful. Now when I go out for a shoot generally speaking I will have three batteries with me. Right, it'll be one daddy in the camera, and then I'll have an extra two batteries and rarely do I have any problems having three batteries with me even on cameras that go through batteries pretty fast. Now, one of those three batteries will be manufacturer's battery and the other two generally speaking are made by someone else like Watson or something like that, and I don't even think about which battery is in the camera and he'd given us not like I'm always going to start with the manufacturer's battery, and then if I have to, I'll go to the Watson. I don't do that. I mean sometimes watching starts out in there sometimes the manufacture. It doesn't make any difference in I. Don't notice any difference so. To answer this particular question. I don't know what Google says. Is. It's OK to use generic batteries. Look at the reviews before you buy photographers will tell you if the battery is performing well or not. If it's got four star rating or more, and most of the comments are hey, the saying I can't even tell the difference is probably safer you to use it and you will save a boatload of money. In other words you could buy two of those batteries and probably a portable charger for the price that the manufacturer wants to charge you for their battery.
Ray Ecosystem with Ion Stoica
"So. What, other applications do you anticipate being built on top of Ray that have not been built yet? So I think that one excited I think sting is about engine that I love about. Of Platform which is general is that you can run on that platform. Wetlands, it was hard before because they for many deficiencies stems ran the same ought about. So these putting them together and I think that you know have these like. You know a lot of analogies like iphone ipad before the IPHONE smartphones you'll have different use cases or defendant capabilities which are embedded in defendant devices like UBS for getting direction as for. Maps and getting direction driving directions they will have Remember you know like a cameras digital cameras so you can have sleep. Utah this device for recording or You ambitiously ladders and seem like. Something that I on like bring goal of this guess at its go now you're an. Obligation on your device, and now you can build new obligation which can use. Like virtual reality you can put that in an indoor you know put together in in a game and UCONN. and. Some seemed like that which you are away at about was location because. Yes I. think that's one that actually did exciting in the big picture. So the example is I have in mind which I believe. Talk a little bit about Bobby was at. Embedding. Now you can have one system to runs. Hope almost the entire beckoned. And? Business logic last machine learning you can have say. Many companies don't run only one model on a number of modern Caesar backhands and then needed. To figure out which models are they're going to use how going to the request between this model. So for instance, if you look at the image and you may want to identify locates. License, plates like only have you know annual you can have a model which look at your image and Suzanne if the image. Has a kagyu identify Ikat only then you can look that. Defy. Something of that car, light? licensed. Licensed like that I if he's not a car, you don't need to do that. So that's an example, a very simple example of business logic that allows example business. each other, very useful cutting stunts. Some industries you need to provence I'm that. Relations in the you are going to make and to verify before you give an asset back that Z. Circulation Salamat. So that's you know that's another example because in. You know like like, for instance, say. One example it's about you make a decision on. Something like a mortgage. You apply for the mortgage and I'm a bank and I'm going to decide on that bondage and it turns out that if I deny you, you can ask me why denied I need to explain you the reason for that I need to make sure to tell you and to assure you that I'd be done denial because using Sam, say racial profiling what seemed like that right to check illegal. So then if I use them in and lovely model, a deep learning, they city hard explain what that is an has been made. So that's why but on the other hand if before I give you the asset I kind of. The asset to make sure that. Is. Not you know it's in. So to speak, it cannot be interpreted like being based on race or something like that which somehow the model had picked it up. then. That's one way to use a machine deep learning model, which I cannot explain in an obligation. We requires me by AG relation to met some rules and even be eight Boko explained that it was. I didn't use in my decision, some of the imports which are not against relations that. I think that's one.

How does one become a ghost hunter?
"Welcome back to the ominous. I. Have. Christie here from Seoul sisters paranormal in. So excited to have you here. Thank you so much for having me. I really appreciate it. I. Kind of I. Actually have a lot of questions. A lot of things that I wanNA talk about the Kinda WanNa start a little bit before soul sisters was thing I kinda WanNa know what got you into the paranormal and letting paranormal investigator. Sure. Absolutely. Sue You know a lot of people say we had this one experience or you know I saw my grandmother something like that it really wasn't like that for us we come from a very researched a background were in. Academia and my sister because the team is made up of myself. Twin sister are younger sister in the two female family friends and we would always say ourselves watching the popular television shows you know, why didn't they investigate here? Why didn't they ask these questions you know why they spend more time researching this location and so we told ourselves if we ever had the opportunity to go on a ghost investigation or panel Mestigation, we would jump at that opportunity. So in. Two thousand thirteen a family friend of ours who sat on the Board of the West Virginia State Penitentiary, he said, why don't y'all come up to Mounds Ville stay a couple nights stay the weekend and one of those nights. Why don't you stay inside the prison and so we jumped at that opportunity we went there. We had some night-vision video cameras had a couple of digital cameras and we spent the night in the West Virginia State Penitentiary One of those honored locations in. The country and we've found such compelling evidence that that evening that we decided that we wanted to really go across the country and do this and look for panel activity as well as visit historical locations had reported history of paranormal activity, and so that's what we did we in two thousand fourteen we come up with our name, our logo, our our brand if you will and just started researching the paranormal and historic places and just had been having a bowl of her since. Rate 'cause I actually did some snooping I want on your website and was watching videos and stuff and Lake I. just I really enjoy how much you guys seem to enjoy the ghost hunting in the effort that you guys put into everything in the way that you come in from a very respectful manner. Well. Thank you. I. Really appreciate you watching it for those kind words, and that's really what we try to do you know for us when we go to these locations and we try to communicate with with spirits and entities we really believed that we're trying to communicate with those that once were human. You know they passed, and for some reason, they're still earthbound if you will and so we we want to give him that respect for the humans that they once were, and so we we do research we we into the history of the locations as well as the any individuals that are reported to haunt locations, and we really do come at it with that respectful and. Empathetic. If you will attitude towards investigations
Best practices for shooting with a view camera
"Not that I want to take all of you down another trip down memory. Lane. But I wanNA talk a little bit about view cameras which was the camera of my youth talk about Gear Acquisition Syndrome I. Think all of us who were interested in pursuing fine art photography in the middle of the twentieth century automatically turned our attention to view cameras because well, that was what ansel Adams used. That was what Edward Weston us that was what all the great photographers used. Except for cardiac or sawn and some of the Magnum photographers but I think a lot of sort of. Discounted that wing of photography is not really the same thing as fine art photography they were more photo journalists and they needed the speed and flexibility of thirty five millimeter equipment and good for them. But for those of us who are interested in, say, for example, landscape photography. Of you camera was the camera of choice but let's admit that hardly anyone uses a view camera anymore and I think for probably pretty good reason they are incredibly Fussy to use lots of little controls, lots of ways to mess up lots of ways to kick things slightly out of focus you can't use them quickly they demand that you use a tripod and they're difficult to set up and it. CETERA. So there's there's slow. They require precise camera manipulations critical focusing on the ground glass. They force you to slow down that that's really think the issue we live in the age of speed and quickness and multitasking, and all the rest of that view cameras force you to slow down. But you know that can be a virtue. As a matter of fact, there may be lots of virtues to view camera and we be able to borrow some of those virtues and use them with our new Yippee skippy digital tools if we really want to. For example, there's nothing that says you have to shoot at twelve frames per second burst mode you can slowdown. Slowing down gives us the opportunity to look and think and with a view camera. In fact, you don't have a choice you have to slow down and look and think, and I think that can actually lead to better photography. And again to compare that to today's cameras where it's all about burst rates and autofocus and instant posting to your social media firehose. I'm not convinced that all of that leads to photographic virtue. At least not when it comes to. Fine Art photography, which is supposed to be about depth of feeling and understanding and being able to share something. That's a little more significant than the glance of social media which I've talked about before. So I don't want to take more time today. But I. Guess. I would some all of that up by just saying that just because the camera is manufactured to be fast Doesn't mean we have to use it. Fast. So here's a few things that I think. We can borrow today from view camera techniques that might be perfectly applicable to digital cameras and the kind of photography we do today because of the virtues of the way it changes the way we work the way we relate to the things that are before the camera, etc the first and most obvious one. is the dark cloth. When you photograph view camera, the image on the ground glass is relatively dark, and so the only way to really see it well is to use a dark cloth and you pull it over your head and you cover the camera and yourself in this dark cloth, which separates you from the world, not only physically but to some degree. Psychologically certainly visually, and you can look at the world from a very narrow perspective when you use a dark law. Now in truth I'm such a trained view camera photographer that when I bought my first digital cameras in early two thousands, I use them with the dark cloth because it was so difficult to see those little teeny tiny LCD screens on. Those early cameras and they were so dark that in the song I couldn't see them at all. So I just used my view camera dark cloth and I found it at great way to not only see the screen and make sure I was composing correctly and all that kind of stuff but the psychological aspect of putting the dark cloth over my head. was such a transition in my internal chronometers. that a I had a a a switch of psychology from looking at the world to photographing the world that had been trained into me for thirty years with a view camera and I found that was a useful tool even though I was now shooting with a digital
Sony is making it easier to use its digital cameras as webcams on Windows
"Sony released imaging edge WEBCAM WINDOWS TEN APP which allows owners of Sony cameras use them as Webcams when connected over USB. thirty-five cameras are supported including older murless models like the original a-7 s and a seven to both originally released in two thousand fourteen as well as more recent models of the Rx one hundred, Rx zero and ace thousand camera lines Sony did not announce the software would eventually come to MAC OS.
5 Ways to Improve Your Videoconference Presence
"Needless to say I've had some interesting online conversations over the last couple of months. I have seen parts of people's houses that I really wasn't prepared for and then there has been a mix of interesting lighting in tin can audio. Yes it has been the wild wild west. So what I've decided to do is take the microphone by the horns and do two things for my contribution to the greater video conferencing world. I I have some tips today. That are easy to enable and that with a little adjustment here or there you should be able to enable. You should be able to use these pretty quickly second later this week. I'm releasing a new online workshop. Called the essential steps to impressive video conferencing. It's a one hour movie that covers audio video and environment and I really get into some cool tips now. I'll talk more about this later in the show. But I'm GonNa tell you right now. That is free to our inner circle members who support this podcast on patron for right now. Let's get to those five tips already tip number one get the to Kia. Yes and you probably want wine. Do you want me to and I'm thinking more like Ikea. Dot Com right because shopping inside care right. A lot of places probably just isn't going to happen but I can't dot com is doing well and if you go to the search box on in enter diffused lighting. You'll get a variety of lamps and lampshades. That are exactly what you need one way or another one of. Them's going to be something that you need now. What is the deal with this Derek? Well here's the deal that the lighting on so many of these calls that I'm watching is terrible. The light tends to be too harsh the wrong color. You all sorts of things and really. What I'm seeing is that people really aren't thinking about. How do I get a flattering light on my face? Which should be really kind of at the top of the list like this. I don't WanNa look terrible. When on these webcams alrighty so how do I look better well? The rule for portrait photography applies to video conferencing as well which is the larger the light source right in the closer to your face the softer the light. And then if you position that light so this more or less you know coming straight on to your face you know. That's what we call fashion lighting and it is very flattering. There's a reason why fashion photographers use it. It makes people look pretty so going back to Ikea if you shop on Kia and you shop. Four diffused lighting. You'll see these lamps and all sorts of goodies that you can accessorize your desk with in suddenly. Look a ton better and the reason why I pick you could get these all sorts of places. But they're actually quite affordable so you get a very attractive desk accessory now and you will look much more attractive on camera if you follow this tip. Now here's the other part of that tip which is get something that's daylight balanced or s close to daylight balanced as possible and again. This is another mistake that I see so often. Which is if you have a tungsten lightbulb shining on you. You're going to be orange. And if you have fluorescent tubes eliminating your mug you're GonNa be Green and neither of those really make great colors for face right so you want a daylight balance tube or as close to daylight as you can get so two parter. One diffused lighting coming straight on and be second part of one. Get as close to daylight balance as you can already. That's tip number one. Here's tip number two. It's called Darling. You Look Marvelous now. Unfortunately those built in seven twenty p Webcams for many laptops and desktops. Just aren't very flattery. And I would go so far as to say that. They are often terrible cracks me up. I have a a state of the art macbook pro thirteen inch. This is a gorgeous machine. It does everything a beautifully except for one thing except for one thing it has that lousy seven twenty p facetime camera that when I turn it on and I look at me I do not feel good. Do not feel plus. They can't control it It has way too much depth of field. I can't control exposure. I mean just goes on and on these things are agonizing and especially for those of us who like photography their double agonizing. So we've got to get away from those now. There are a couple of things you can do. If you have a cam link already which is a digital interface that allows you to connect your digital camera to your computer. You have a lump of gold right now because they are hard to find the ones that I really like are the ones who made by El Gato however if you do a little searching online and you search for video digital interface there are some other ones and there's one right now that's fairly affordable from e can get h Made by I o gear. I think it's like ninety nine bucks That people are saying works. Pretty well and the supply of those seem to be you know pretty regular. I know that this is probably the one thing that many people don't have but is the one thing that many people should get in especially in our audience because our audience as full of people who have these beautiful Sony Olympus Panasonic Fujifilm Nikon Canon cameras right. If you have a cannon camera by the way cannon just came out with some software that you can use and you don't have to get the digital interface and just play your cannon camera in so if you're a canon shooter you may want to check that out
Why Can Helicopter Blades Look Weird on Video?
"Have you ever noticed that fast spinning objects like helicopter blades in airplane? Propellers sometimes look really weird on film and video sure sometimes you can only see a circular blur but sometimes they appear to be spinning very slowly. Sometimes they also look like they're spinning backward in very rare cases. They can even look like they're holding still. So what is up with that well when you watch a film or a video nothing on screen is moving instead? You're seeing a succession of still images that come so rapidly that your eyes and brain interpret them as continuous motion with this in mind. We need to look at two different facts about how those images are captured. Shutter speed and frame rate shutter speed is a measure of how long the cameras spends collecting light each time. It takes a picture. The longer the film or Digital Pixel Array spends gathering light the more motion blur we see in the image. Let's say you WANNA shoot a video of yourself. Doing some radd throwing knife tricks if you toss a knife at ten meters per second and film it at a shutter speed of one quarter of a second. The knife will travel two point five meters while the camera is exposing each frame coming out as a streaky blur in the final video. But if you shoot the same knife with a shutter speed of one one thousandth of a second. It will only travel one centimeter while each picture is taken meaning. The knife will look less blurry in each frame now. The same applies to helicopter blades. Long exposures will make the blades look more uniformly blurry at quicker. Shutter speeds strange looking patterns or even discreet individual blades will begin to appear the second main factor to consider is frame rate. We can start with a slow motion analogy. Imagine you've got a Sundial. The shadow on the dial mix one complete revolution every twenty four hours now. Let's say you take a picture of that Sundial once every minute. If you play those pictures in order as a video you'll see the shadow spinning rapidly around the clock in the normal clockwise direction. If you capture a frame exactly once every twenty four hours in this video the shadow will appear to stand still and if you take the picture once every twenty three hours and fifty nine minutes. The dial in the video will appear to slowly creep backward. The same principle is at work in videos of helicopter blades. Only complicated by greater speed in both the rotation and the frame rate and by adding more blades frame rate is usually expressed in frames per second or F-. Ps Imagine you're shooting twenty four F. Ps VIDEO OF A helicopter rotor. That spins one full rotation every second in the video each revolution will thus be broken into twenty four frames. You will see the blades rotating normally just moving one twenty fourth of their full rotation in each frame but if the blades spin exactly twenty four times each second and you're still shooting at twenty four frames per second. Each full revolution will be represented by only one frame. The blades will arrive back in their starting place. Each time the camera captures a frame. So they'll look like they're standing still. But what if you have blades that spin exactly twenty three times each second in? You're still shooting at twenty four F. Ps each frame will capture the blades. Having just made about ninety six percent of a full rotation the blades will always be just a little bit behind where they are in the previous frame thus in the final video the blades will look like they're spinning backwards. But that's not the only way our cameras can trick US sometimes. Propellers and helicopter blades caught on video can look s shaped or even fragmented this type of distortion is caused by the method of Pixel capture. That's used in digital cameras most digital video cameras today. Don't expose the whole frame all at once but instead sample a single line of pixels at a time and update the frame line by line this is called a rolling shutter with a rolling shutter any object moving extremely fast will be sampled in a way that distorts its shape across the frame leading to spinning blades. That look bent or broken or appear to be hovering separate from the aircraft. In fact you can try this out on. Your phone's Camera Panning. Quickly back and forth while you're taking video if your camera uses a rolling shutter the picture will be distorted so that solid objects will appear to bend like rubber or
The astrophysicist and immunologist who've dropped everything for COVID19 - Science Interrupted Part 2
"So most of what I did was a combination of data software and statistics. This is astrophysicist. Dr Sam Hinton from the University of Queensland in January Hey submitted his PhD so I worked on Supernova cosmology and that's essentially taking exploding stars somewhere in the universe and using that to figure out how far away they and once you figure out how far away something is and how bright it is you can try and map out the history of the universe. Obviously things that are further away are further back in time because it takes time to get to us so the idea was if we can map out the last fourteen billion years of the universe ended expansion that hopefully we can try and characterize the nature of dark energy and dark Meta. That's my main eight right and obviously that's a problem. That's all about modeling and Statistics. So I created Asian hierarchical models and other sorts of models try and encapsulate all the nitty gritty details. That happened in the universe. In some statistically robust way so just a little way project just a tiny one that managed to consume years of my life. And whether that's because I just wasn't smart enough or whether it turns out that the Hamid actually really is complicated. Well I have opinions on both if only I was smarter. And if only the universe was simpler okay so taking on the entire history of the entire universe right there. So how is this? Astrophysicist and software engineer now suddenly found himself working on another big but totally different problem. The cove nineteen pandemic today on the show too young scientists who have had to rapidly retrofit and translate talents in an unprecedented moment in history. Sam Foreign doesn't shy away from a challenge. If he's name sounds familiar to you. That means you might be a fan of this stamp. Tonight's GonNa play out that I wanted to crunch the numbers for this other man to do it. There's computer I don't know if he's going to go hunt. I didn't even know. Cross was going to play his idol. New Sam was a popular contestant in the twenty eighth season of survivor Australia but bravado aside what use is an astrophysicist in fighting a global pandemic after all as far as we know now corona virus has made it into space yet and that's a relief as poor people on the International Space Station. There's no ICU. Up there what essentially happened was once I started getting serious. Everyone just put out feeling the same. We need help looking at a whole bunch of these tasks and this happened at Uku. Enriches where I work and through the grapevine. People said. We're looking for someone with all these skills and then Sam supervisor happens to be the acclaimed dark energy astrophysicist and TV presenter Professor Tamra Davis She's also passionate about astrophysics people using their research knowledge and skills in non astrophysics domains. So Tamra put Sam's name Ford The first thing was surely there are people that are better suited than me and salmon just accepted a job offer in the US at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. That's a big deal. But when Sam was told more he went back to Tamra and said. Are you all right if I just take months off from my actual normal astrophysics project to work on? This and her response was absolutely fine. Don't worry about it. We'll figure something out. Get on the project and do what you can. It was there was no chance that I was telling this down. It was a way to make a real contribution and astrophysics You know we don't make significant contributions every day to society we may every now and then invent something like the digital camera and was like yes. This is amazing but covet is a right here right now. One hundred percent immediate problem so there was absolutely no hesitation jumping into it so just like that. In a matter of moments Sam's life has suddenly turned upside down. Oh yeah if I thought I had long hours before. There's nothing like the current hours that we have to deal with. Sam is now the lead daughter analyst on a really crucial international project rolling out in real time in intensive care units across the world during this pandemic. And if you've seen the footage coming out of those units you'll know that this is a hellish frontier and what we need damage. Dice seeing young patients patients people of all age ranges. Who are just incredibly sick. And you can even hear now as. I'm walking through patient rooms in the hallway. It just your oxygen the sound of the pulse ox this ventilator later. Dan has joined. What's called ECO car? The global project headed up by trail-blazing intensive care specialist professor John Fraser from Prince. Charles Hospital in Brisbane AIKMAN COD is a mighty Akron Rod. It stands for Extra Corp. membrane oxygenation for twenty nine thousand nine novel Corona Virus Acute Respiratory Disease a card so when your heart and lungs can't do the job of oxygenating your blood and it. Komo machine allows that to happen outside. If you body. We want to know essentially. How can we best help as many people as possible? So we have very finite resources with this outbreak. We don't have an infinite amount of nurses doctors and ventilation equipment that we can just put everyone on so we need to know. Hey if if patient x comes through the door and they look like this but is the best sort of ventilation can give them if we just give them a mosque. Are they going to be fine or is this a patient that needs something more severe because a nurse can generally do around ten c-pap mosques so the very easy ventilation but if they have to actually mechanically ventilate someone help out the longest mechanically and it's essentially one nurse per patient and we don't have that many nurses when we have so many patients coming in so we really want to be able to say when someone walks in the door that they're probably going to need this outcome will be x? Y. Depend however retreat them. So when someone comes in we take the age we take their weight and then we need to know what other things do have do. They have high blood pressure Do they have diabetes? Are they smoke I? What is the condition of their lungs? There's so many things so many different data points that you can gather in the medical world ten thousand different questions that you could ask but what we have in our data time series so for two weeks after people. Get to the ICU. How are they red blood cells evolving? How of their platelet counts doing what we want to do is compare their outcomes and Dan data with other people other healthy people or people that have different afflictions so that we can say this is the thing that's unique about Karina buyers. This is one of the predict is here. That's different from anything else. And it's very hard to get that sort of time. Series data doctors and nurses are working around the clock to keep people alive. They're exhausted so around the world. Medical students are stepping up and being recruited to help collect the data every day. You need to be updating the data. And that's why we need for example medical students to come in because it is such a large burden if anyone is trying to also treat patients on top of that. We have around five hundred different variables from the different patients. And about a hundred of those we have information hopefully essentially every day that they're in ICU. So that we can see how they evolve over time. I can't say too much mall because whilst I have a huge list of variables in front of me things like pro calcitonin. I don't know how they used in a medical context all that I can do generate the reports and then worked with the clinicians in real time to say. What do you want to see? What would you expect to see? And how can I best present these models and this information to you so that you can draw conclusions from it? The urgency of the situation means. This is being taken very seriously. Clinicians are working in the dark right now with this new virus so they'll benefit from a Biegel clearer picture of what's happening for patients around the world. Oh Yeah it's absolutely unbelievable. I've never been involved in a project this lodge and especially in the current predicament. All the usual blockades and the bureaucratic slowdowns that you encounter have just been removed. So we have fifty countries now from Estonia to Kuwait to the United States is coming online the UK Italy Spain strategies coming online now two tons of countries and then each country also has all the hospitals in it. So we've got around two hundred fifty hospitals and that number grows every day.
Keeping an Eye on Earth
"Earth's climate's is the product of many rich and complex systems. It's affected by water in its many forms on land in the air in the oceans and as is it feels influences from vegetation from soil conditions from the carbon cycle from human impacts. We study and observe our plants. Ever changing conditions in many ways for many locations we'll location in particular provides a unique and powerful vantage point allowing us to see our planet in high detail and on a broad scale space. The International Space Station is home to many instruments that help with the study of our planet in a variety of ways each is an amazing resource for scientists and researchers but together. They paint a picture of earth richer and more detailed than any one instrument could provide from the vantage point of the Orbiting Laboratory. Djeddai measures earth surface vegetation producing three d views of forest height and structure and the surface topography beneath forests and other plant life respond to a variety of environmental stresses and the ECHO. Stress Instrument allows researchers to study plant temperature and provides insights into how life on earth response to changes in water availability. Who's Yo three measures? Atmospheric Co two with high accuracy hoping researchers better understand co two increases and decreases and the impacts of those changes and through the use of to cutting edge spectral images on the station his we and deases researchers have access to highly detailed information on materials across birth surface from identifying minerals and rock types to distinguishing between plant species. There's another and often overlooked. Observational instruments on the space station crew members equipped with digital cameras over three million images have been collected by astronauts from the station and those images can be put to a variety of uses. William Stephens off his branch chief for the Exploration Science Office part of the Exploration Integration and Science Directorate at Johnson Space Center. He says hand held cameras used by the crew act as a complement to the data gathered by the station's various instruments. And that comes down to the ability of the crew to take pictures that are panoramic and oblique versus a straight down. Look that panoramic view can be quite useful. When observing natural disasters as the occur such as wildfires or volcanic eruptions Stephan explains a camera is an excellent tool for examining the plumes created by wildfires volcanoes. Because it gives you an immediate three dimensional picture. What the plume looks like what it structure is and how far it's extending. The observational instruments aboard. The Space Station provides science capabilities. That are more than the sum of their parts. These instruments along with photography from crew members serve to keep a multifunctional.

Tips for looking great on Zoom
"For All your money questions turned to the nerds at Nerdwallet DOT COM okay. So we're all taking a lot of zoom meetings right now and we're looking at the camera and we're looking ourselves and saying God. I really look awful. Don't I what's wrong with this picture. Well my good friend Larry Becker. Who's a photographer and bibliographer in Florida has just written a book? It's called Great on-camera. He's got a bunch of tips for how to make yourself look way better Larry. I'm going to toss it right to you. Where shall we start? Thank you appearance right. Yeah it it's all about how you look and how you sound so there are a couple of different things that That I push people toward but one of the problems is people. Don't realize that the camera that they're using whether it's a a Webcam or one that's built into their tablet or their phone or their computer is wide angle and so there are a lot of bad things that happen when you're really close to a wide angle lens and it starts with making you look extra around so what I tell. People is first of all. Let's get camera in the right place so for me. I always suggest go straight at I level so you make eye to eye contact. Another thing is back away from the camera a little bit so that you're more normal human proportions so one of the challenges people feel like they need to be really close to the camera and that's not always a good thing so definitely back up to. Let's talk about appearance. Yes so there are a lot of things that have to do with your appearance. And one of the things that affects your appearance is going to be lighting. I have a really bright outside light coming into my office all day long whenever I'm not on video but as soon as I'm getting ready to go on video I shut the blinds. Because that overpowering light just makes my appearance look really bad. I'm really really blown out white on the side that the sunshine comes in and hits me on the side of the face. So that's terrible. Another thing that affects my appearance is I have really smooth forehead skin and if you have any extra lights on at all I look shiny and if you look shiny you look sweaty and if you look sweaty that tells people you're not really somebody I can trust and so believe it or not just a little bit of powder will knock down the shine and you'll look a whole lot better and another thing is what are you wearing. A lot of people don't realize it but The cameras do this thing with the sensor the image sensor in the camera that causes more pattern interference in the way. I explained it to people a lot of times. Is it's like if you're looking through a screen door at another screen and in Florida here where I live. Everybody has a pool with a big screen cage over it and they all know if you have to screen. You're looking through both of them at the same time. You get these weird patterns of interference. Well that happens with digital cameras and small patterns on shirts so if you or any cloth so if you have a shirt with a really tight design or even a ribbed look on the fabric that that can cause pattern interference and your shirt then just looks all like it's electrical. It looks like bad. Interference Patterns clothing is forget about a plaids and patterns solid colors. But not white or black. Right I I like to stay away from black white and tight patterns. I don't mind stripes. If they're really big you can get away with that okay. What about backgrounds? A lot of people like to go in front of bookshelves That's fine if it's all just books but if you have a bookshelf and you have all kinds of different objects. But what's going to happen? Is People will start listening to you. And then they'll get distracted by the weird stuff that's in your background. And if you want people to pay attention to you make your background. Simple lighting webcams are very low resolution and We usually look pretty dark when we look at ourselves on the laptop. What can we do about that couple? Things the Webcam is trying to balance all the light throughout the whole scene. And if you're wearing dark stuff in your scene is dark and your backlit your face is going to be fully in the shadow so the best thing to do is have the brightest light near your Webcam but actually pointed at your face. So that'll light up your face. The other thing is the lighter shirt. You wear the lighter. Overall the exposure will be throughout the image and are probably end up looking better if you're wearing a a medium to a light colored shirt so bottom lining No no distractions on on on a bookshelf. Notice tractions on my clothing coma. Hair shave my face. Put on the makeup and Get a light in front of me and most importantly I di- contact. Don't have the Webcam looking up your chin. Yeah that's the worst is looking up your chin. It's a little bit better to have it looking down at Ya but I see beauty bloggers a lot saying do that. But I recommend Ida eye

I love digital cameras were designed around the three point five inch floppy drive. I remember these cameras were designed around the form factor of this old media. Digital camera that had a three and a half though. Yeah. Unfortunately. Yeah. So. A minute became the save icon in here. We are right. And now, and now your children are like what is this picture? You mean mean safe? Yeah. But like it was never a thing. It's just means save do your kids. They even know like what like the the the handset icon is for the phone who say those talking talking to Paul this last night. My son is nine k and he is great on FaceTime. Right. He's fantastic with air pods. Yeah. But he's nine so he's he's he's old enough to understand a phone does not understand how to pick up a phone and put it to his face properly. Oh, so he'll only talk to you with the phone held out in front of him FaceTime. Yes. He will. He have a non FaceTime just audio only. Zinc. If he does it to have it like speaker. But like we were talking to my grandfather. Okay. You're gonna put the phone to your face doesn't understand FaceTime. And you're gonna have to yell at him. Okay. So there's no speakerphone. Right. And I had a literally hold the phone to my son's face because we were talking about the handset. Makes the design of it. You know, how to hold. Yeah. He doesn't understand sell evidence opposed to your face and figure which end is up. He can't do that. Because why would he seldom the fifties were designed and told you the form factor? Total do with it many things do. Yeah. This has no form what do with this. I'm looking at it. And I told us anyways. Are it does not tell you? It's vs phone. And of course, I'm sitting there just boggled because I'm just thinking how do you not how to hold a phone, and they'll probably why rains icons on your ipad screen in like, two seconds. Of course on. I mean, and like do all this other. There's no logical problem. Yeah. It's just. Massive world in Minecraft. Yes. Exactly. But why would you wanna say? We do that. Yeah. Totally. Yeah. I I have these generational observations. And with people like a lot, and it's it's I don't know. I've asked my niece and nephew. If somebody pulls up next to you. And does the window roll down motion. What does that mean? Oh, the role they knew their seventeen and nineteen they knew, and I would also pose the question if you wanted to you know, you have somebody roll your window down. What do you do? Do you hold the the window button to put the wind of oh, they know do this. Everybody knows that where what car has a window crank anymore. Yeah. Nineteen eighty-seven Lamborghini Kunti. Yes. But nothing you're making though is his is healed like the save icon. This is still kids understand this one. This means never actually weighed item right into the context of so much. So does that mean all kids need to be, you know, have Lamborghini ride? So they need typewriters fucking rotary phones and Kuhn's ashes, and we're golden dude. Drive there. We know maybe a reel to reel of some kind. Just just for something to work on. Yeah. Yeah. So let's go some boys. Welcome. How you doing kinds of stuff doing good? We are ramping up for actually season five. We're Todd's just fin fish in seasons. Now because motor trends television, network writer and early in. Yeah. Here's here's. Yes, here's the grand confusion because Motor Trend has taken over velocity. Okay. And so everybody thinks of Motor Trend as the app as the on demand. But we're independent producers on motor fan. So we're on the cable channel only not on the app. They always do you vote on the app. It's a whole other. That'd be nice. So so we own all the right so Amazon prime after which we're very excited about people. That's good secondary.
