A quote from @piercewarnecke in “The DIY Guide to Making Music Videos.” Effects are great, but too many can clog up any video.

F-stop is always a tricky subject to teach and to understand. Here’s an excerpt from a video that tries to illustrate what happens when you change f-stop. (It’s one of 11 videos that come with the book, “The DIY Guide to Making Music Videos.”)

Zombie mailman, from 2D to 3D-ish, (aka 2.5D or the parallax effect). Whatever you call it, it’s a fun animation exercise of one of my favorite graffiti photos from somewhere in El Carmen (the old city of Valencia, Spain) from 2015. Anyone know if it’s still there?

(Sound on, and wait for the end!) One from the archives, in honor of scary pumpkin day and Rocket Man. A short couple of audio clips from a long song (or two—at least, the song has two names), great to listen to with the lights out.

I took a slow-mo video of a fascinating red tree in the Turia of Valencia, Spain (swipe through to see the original), but the video was glitching, I think because of a weird frame rate. I layered it with a 180-degree copy of itself using a difference blend mode, and this was the result. Kinda cool, I think.

While in the “schloßgarten” in Kiel, Germany earlier this week, I saw a bush with berries that were an amazingly vivid purple, so here it is with no color correction and some layering in AfterEffects. The audio is an unmodified field recording of a nightingale.

Graceful gulls (seagullegant?) with a chill track for relaxing on a Sunday. I like to just stare at the pattern in the center as it loops around.
