Animation Showing How the Canon 10D and 24-85mm Lens are Assembled

This animation was created by students of the Engineering 128: Advanced Engineering Design Graphics course at UC Berkeley during the Spring 2008 semester. The first part shows a Canon 10D DSLR exploding into its individual parts, and then those parts coming together again to slowly rebuild the camera, while the second part does the same for a Canon 24-85mm lens. Pretty…impressive considering that it’s for an undergraduate course.

My Nephilim theory | John Prine’s “Some Humans Ain’t Human” video back up

I just explained my Nephilim theory at ONEcanhappen, which I’ve been considering for decades and explains a lot!

My theory on the Nephilim: When God told the Children of Israel to kill every man, woman and child in Canaan (the giants), there was this Genesis-6, demon-contaminated genetic problem again? Israel did not; and then there was intermarriage. This would explain why so many seem to be predisposed towards evil — and they become our leaders — even of churches?!!

* * *

And the video for John Prine: “Some Humans Ain’t Human” — Austin City Limits again works, which I’ll put up also here:

Some humans ain’t human
Some people ain’t kind
You open up their hearts
And here’s what you’ll find

A few frozen pizzas
Some ice cubes with hair
A broken Popsicle
You don’t want to go there

Or you’re feeling your freedom
and the world’s off your back

starts his own war in Iraq

Why I ONLY Shoot RAW — “Friends don’t let friends shoot JPEG” — Why throw all those pixels away? You may want them someday.

NOTE: many compact cameras don’t shoot in RAW anyway [these do], but they often come preset to a low quality setting. So people buy a 10 megapixel camera, and then literally throw away most of the pixels!

Here are reasons to at least consider shooting in the ‘highest quality’ JPEG mode, and perhaps even using only cameras that can shoot in RAW, which allows us to shoot in JPEG and RAW simultaneously, to keep the most amount of data for archiving (RAW) and a JPEG of practical size for everyday use.

——-

I thought I’d share this really well written, short piece on why non-professional photographers should consider shooting in RAW too.

Some may be thinking: ‘What are you talking about, Jeff?’ Basically:

RAW, is one type of file output from a DSLR or advanced camera that writes ALL DATA from the digital sensor to the memory card. Other file types are TIF and JPG. Most photographers start out shooting JPG [or JPEG] because they don’t know better or believe everything they read online.

Check out this really cool analogy from this article:

Think of it this way…from the days you used to shoot -FILM– of all things. When you had your photos processed at the lab what would you do with your negatives? Always keep them safely stored and filed, right? Of course! Well RAW files are your negatives and JPEG files are the 4×6 prints you would get at the same time. About 50% of the time they are fine, but many times the young kid who was clueless behind the print processor in the lab didn’t know how you liked your prints. Sometimes they were too dark, other times they should have corrected for the very bright flash and dark background.

So why, now that you are shooting digital, do you toss away your negatives (RAW files) and settle for only the 4×6 prints (JPEG files)? Would you ever make a 20×30 or 30×40 print from a tiny 4×6 print that was poorly printed in the first place? Never! Heck no! So why do you settle for JPEG files that are tossing more data than you keep while the camera is converting it from RAW?

Friends don’t let friends shoot JPEG.

So maybe most of your photos are just for the memories, and you’ll never want to display them in the highest quality. But what if you shoot an image that is flat out gorgeous, or for some other reason you’d like to print it bigger to hang it on your wall someday, but all you have saved into your memory card is a low-quality JPEG?

There are two issues here. Are your photos saved only as JPEGs, and what resolution size is selected in the camera’s menu?

Many compact cameras actually don’t shoot in RAW at all, so shooting in RAW may not even be a possibility unless you buy a RAW-capable camera, which I always make sure I do. Then you can shoot in RAW and JPEG at the same time, called RAW + JPEG. And JPEGs can be as large or small as you’d like. Small is great for sending in emails, for example. But then you always have the RAW file if you need to make (or have someone make for you) a larger JPEG — or the best possible image that you could get from the uncompressed RAW file.

Since memory is so cheap these days, why not just get a bigger memory card and shoot in RAW + JPEG? This will slow down download times though. And the “write times” (time it takes to record the image into the card during shooting) can be longer in many cameras too.

The highest quality, archival RAW files aren’t practical for most people to get their everyday images from, because they require editing in software to look good (like film negatives required specific tweaking) — whereas the JPEGs are ready to go, having already added the standard adjustments, like saturation, contrast, white balance, sharpening, etc.

So you have the best of both worlds if you shoot in both RAW and JPEG, with the few limitations I show above.

Shooting in the highest res JPEG is also far better than leaving it in low-res, if you want a higher quality or bigger print someday. But these generally should probably be downsized in a computer program to put on the net or sent in an email.

Personally, I shoot in RAW only, no JPEGs at all, from which I can always make a JPEG. But for the shooter who wants to do as little as possible in the computer and still have a best quality, archive copy, shooting in RAW + small JPEG may be ideal.

And if you only shoot in JPEG, increasing the resolution to maximum may not be quite as good as RAW for getting the best larger print someday, but it’s many times better than throwing away all of those pixels by compressing in the smallest size.

And what if you want to crop, print or put on the web just part of the picture? This can only be effectively done from the larger file sizes.

The larger JPEGs really are too big to be sent to friends in an email, so they would need post-processing to make them email/web-ready.

Small JPEG + RAW may be the best solution for keeping the negative and the small print (in terms of the illustration above).

Why throw all those pixels away? You may want them someday.

“Once saved always saved.”

We should have had revival/
real Christianity happening
long ago in this city.

This is an inexcusable, major tragedy.

The ‘pastors’ should be down on their knees,
crying out for mercy,
confessing their sin —
apologizing.

Greater things

We should be leading the world.
Instead it’s business as usual —
as America crumbles before our eyes.

Who-Goes-To-Heaven Scriptures — Narrow is the Way | Who are the Children of God?


[real art history] Ansel Adams gave up on color photography because printing in that day was too dificult to master. The only person who could routinely produce fine-art quality color prints was Christopher Burkett.

From: Jeff Fenske

There is a common misnomer that black and white printing is somehow more artistic, because this is the format that Ansel Adams and most of the classic fine-art photographers chose.

But Miles Hecker describes in this interview that Ansel Adams and most of the other fine-art photographers gave up on color printing because the process was too difficult to master until digital printing came on the scene.

The only exception that Hecker knows of is Christopher Burkett, of whom he says this:

“In his era, the only person that I knew that could routinely produce fine-art quality, color prints was Christopher Burkett. … He managed to do it and became a legend.

But literally, before the era of digital printing, he’s the only person I can think of that was capable of pulling it off. He must have prayed hard and had secrets unknown to all of us, because he did it.”

Hecker also points out that in the early days, color prints had a much lower archival life, which is no longer the case with modern pigment inks.

Artist Statement

The world untouched and undefiled by man is one of indescribable beauty and wonder: a world filled with light and peace. The miracle of life unfolds before our eyes, and is seen in the tapestry of creation. All of our world, each living cell, every stone and drop of water, even the air and light around us, reflects and mirrors the glory and presence of the Creator and calls us to respond with wonder and praise.

Photography is an expression of the world we live in, and of what we see and experience. Many contemporary photographs seem filled with negativity and warped, malignant things. That these negative things and perceptions exist now for a time in the world with us is indisputable, but I feel strongly that there is no need to give life and strength to them. Too often, attempting to represent the sacred in nature is maligned as being naive or simplistic, and is said to be unchallenging and visually unsophisticated. This need not be so.

The purpose of my photography is to provide a brief, if somewhat veiled, glimpse into that clear and brilliant world of light and power. To the extent that these photographs help show that way, is the extent to which these images succeed.

Transcribed by Jeff Fenske from Episode #36 of Fine Art Photography Weekly: Ken Duncan

Award winning artist, Ken Duncan is one of the worlds most popular and successful photographers and we are pleased to feature the artist and his work in Episode 36 of Fine Art Photography Weekly. Ken is a master landscape photographer with a preference for the ‘panoramic’ format; Ken feels this format is more consistent with the way we see the world. Despite this preference, Ken dabbles in a multitude of formats and is always pushing the edge of innovation and technology. Ken is Australian and has become famous for his Limited Edition Photographic Art in Australian and around the world.

“I love landscape. It does something to you. I believe, for me, I’m trying to show the beauty of God’s creation and to bring peace into people’s lives. There’s just something about landscape.

It just helps you sort of chill out a bit. You may have had a bad day. And you know, the news is just like a joke. If it’s not Bin Laden who’s going to get you it’s the global financial crisis. And then there’s some other flu. It’s like ‘give me a break.’

So I think we need a bit more peace. And when I go out to nature and look at the beauty of creation I just realize there is something bigger than us. And thank God for that, because if it was up to politicians we’d be in serious trouble.”

“That was my heart, to really try to promote photography as an art form.”

* * *

[The Host] “I think landscape photography and the art of displaying — or the medium of landscape photography as art on the wall has by a long shot  not reached its potential.”

[Ken Duncan] “It’s going to be much bigger, because the more we go down this path of bureaucracy people are wanting peace. This world is very stressful, and people are doing it tough out there, you know? And so I believe that we have a job to get out there and bring as much in.”
