Romano Zerbini in conversation with Lorenzo Borghi @ Photobastei: “behind the green point of view”

Many thanks to Romano Zerbini, curator of Photobastei, who gave me the opportunity to explain today what’s behind my exhibition: The green point of view.

What is near-infrared photography ?

Can we define The Green point of view as conceptual art?

How do plants perceive reality via near-infrared sight ?

What creates the peculiar atmosphere in near-infrared pictures ?

Which new concepts can we develop out of The green point of view?

Of this and more we discussed today at Photobastei. Thanks to the public for questions and new ideas! The green point of view is open until the 5th of April!

 

Through the rough Judean desert to the calm shores of the Dead Sea (Israel)

Through the desert where Satan tempted Jesus for 40 days and 40 nights …

Enjoy the colours and shapes of this waters containing 34% of salt (10 times more than Mediterranean sea)

Relax by floating on the water surfaces

but keep this extremely salty water out of mouth and eyes… otherwise …

After a long ride, time to wrap up some stats …

artborghi-artborghi-2013

It has been a long ride, dear readers, and it is time to wrap up some numbers. From January to  October 2013 artborghi published more than one post every two days, which means:

– 173 posts and 1,509 pictures uploaded

On your side, you gave artborghi a warm feedback:

– 492 comments, 371 followers, 43,387 contacts,  299 links (and much more)

… and especially a huge motivation to go on publishing.  From now on the scheduling of new posts will change a bit: work pressure and shorter days will not stop artborghi, just slow it down a tiny bit, like when a bear sniffs the next winter approaching …

For the moment, I thank you so much  … and stay tuned for the “not to far away” next post!

Waiting for the PanSTARRS comet: D800 time lapse option

Watch the movie full screen at HI-RES (1080px) (you set it by clicking on the settings icon in the youtube window after play starts) or you will miss several details.

Waiting for the PanSTARRS comet, I trained with the D800 time-lapse option. First part of the post movie was shot 1 frame / min (too fast), second at 1 frame / 10 sec (the speed I prefer), third at 1 frame / 20 secs (still too fast).

The camera mounted the Nikkor 50 mm F/1.4G and was set on:

– f/2

– ISO 640

– Mirror up and tripod to avoid vibrations

– centre balanced metering to have small overexposed areas.

The pictures of each movie part were merged into a .MOV file in camera, so not too many options were left for editing except into Windows Movie Maker or similar. Next time I will try D800 Interval pictures instead, as each frame is separately saved as single file and open for more modifications.

PS Mind switching off every automatism from the camera or you will get the flickering unwanted effect of this post movie… I suspect the AWB being the cause for it.

In the movie below every automatic feature of the D800 was off: much better!

Hoch-Ybrig (CH) 2013: fast freestyle action and full frame D800

hyjump_3small

They say a full frame camera like the D800 is not good for sport and action. Indeed it is quite heavy to carry along … Despite the ridiculous 4 fps, the D800 is still able to catch some good action (here subjects were added on backgrounds post-shooting) . Click on each picture to magnify it in a new tab.

To get a fast subject on focus mind to set up the following:

– AF-C (continuous AF) “d9” or “3d” to avoid focusing the background instead of your subject, especially with a 50 mm

– cH for “high” burst speed (no 6 fps for me, I do not have the battery grip with the EN-EL18)

– To reach 5 fps with normal batteries you can shoot in DX mode

– With a max f/2.8 , I set up ISO to 200 and time was around 1/6000

– Better shooting with a zoom to restrict most of the focus area on your subject, the 70-200 mm VRII set at 70 mm was enough

The long winter in Zurich almost passed by …

artborghi_frozen_brunnen_stadelhofen_1a

These pictures show the two faces of the Brunnen (fountain) you can find in Stadelhofen square in Zurich. Despite the frozen temperatures, the City of Zurich leaves several fountains running through the whole winter. The effect is quite spectacular, as you can see by clicking the two pictures of this post.

Will they ever wake up as Spring approaches again?
