Type Keys

A shot I took awhile ago.

I often find videos or examples of work other people are doing inspiring. I especially like video’s of others working, most likely because I’m visual and learn best from watching something being done. This is a video from Chase Jarvis and he is using the RED One digital cinema camera and the Nikon D3s HD DSLR on location shooting skateboarding and glass blowing. He shows some tricks of the trade and how he got his angles.

I’ve been promising it and here it is! Here’s the link to one of our WACO Classic Aircraft Corporation biplane cockpit 360 panoramic’s!

Here are other WACO aircraft post on this blog:

I am posting some of the normal photos I took when we were at WACO Classic Aircraft Corporation doing a 360 degree photography panoramic shoot of cockpits for them. You just don’t see quality craftsmanship like this anymore! Just amazing work! You have to see these wooden wing frames that are made the way they use to be for the biplanes in the 30’s by real craftsmen!

Amazing craftsmanship! You have to see it in person to realize how well it is made and to what extent the attention to detail is!

A view of a whole wing structure. Craftsmanship and attention to detail like you wouldn't believe!

Lacking the color treatment of the other photos posted in the posting but you get to see the pretty vibrant red! 🙂

Here are a couple of iPhone shots of my workspace while I was working on 360 panoramic shots of a biplanes cockpit. See post before this one. Just thought I would post this for those interested in graphic design and photography. I sometimes find things like this inspirational.

We are going back in a few days to shoot another and possibly other normal photography shots.

Stay tuned because I might have some exciting news on this project in the future! Also when the 360’s are done and up on the sites I will post links.

One of our most challenging 360 panoramic shoots yet. We have been hired to do panoramics in airplane cockpits. Although these shoots are more difficult I like shoots like this because of the problems to solve. There’s something really rewarding about troubleshooting shoots like this and getting the captures we need! I know there will be more post processing when doing these type of shoots but I also enjoy troubleshooting on that end of things. We will be going back for more shoots and may be doing a timelapse of the building of a airplane. Maybe some aerial shots in the future also? When this project is done I will post the aircraft companies name and web address.

Check out some of our high quality full screen 360 degree panoramics at our site! We will be updating our site with many more of our panoramics hopefully soon.

Stay tuned, we may have some exciting news on this project in the future!

Note – Photos below were shot and uploaded with my iPhone so quality may not be great. If I get time in the future I will post higher quality photos from a real camera. Also I am posting this from my iPhone to try out my WordPress iPhone app.

The book is
CMYK 2.0 – A Cooperative Workflow for Photographers, Designers, and Printers

The book takes you from the days of film and half-tone laminate proofs to the use of CTP (computer to plate) where the digital original is exposed directly onto the printing plate and all the changes, advancements and new challenges in color management that came with it.
It also covers the change to digital cameras and how it has brought all new color management issues. The book is a rule book for each member of the color management team designer, photographer, and pre press/press.
Check out the review at The Luminous Landscape and consider buying the book, it’s on my list.
