The Cellar - Image of the Day
So this is next: glow-in-the-dark highway markers were "lit up" yesterday, as a first test, on a stretch of road in the Netherlands. But there weren't a lot of photos available to make it an IotD! I guess three lines, merging into one for the human eyes, is just not that photographically interesting, or something. I mean, look at it up there. Doesn't look like much. But it is. The photo above comes from Dutch Public Broadcasting, and their story includes a video which tells you a lot more than the picture does. The lines are very bright and clear. I want this on my nearby pikes. The main article on it in the English-reading Internet came from Ars Technica. Their article features a lot of mock-ups of what could be done with luminescence and highways. It's all awesome, and I'm glad this is all coming about as my own aging eyes start to make night driving a chore. Of course, if when the cars learn to drive themselves, none of this will be necessary.

The Palace Guardians
“The shot is done in Paris at Palais de Tokyo on the march 21st 2014. Opalenscence, french fire artist told me that a mexican friend Luis Gomez Islas of her was in Paris and asked me for an epic souvenir picture. For that I have asked her to build a special torch filled with pyro powder that creates amazing flammes. Palais de Tokyo is the fire artist place in Paris with some beautiful sculptures. I have imagined the composition including them and started the picture.I used 2 speedlights with a wireless remote, 1 umbrella (left) and an octobox (right). Setup: Canon 5D (the first one) + 85mm F1.8 The final image is a composite of 2 differents exposition to get details in the flamme, the models and the sculptures.“- Frederic AmaduEXIF: 1/1000 F5.6 ISO 400 for the flammes and 1/100 F8 ISO 800WEBSITE FACEBOOK
