A PSD-breakdown animation that shows how my new composite image was created in collaboration with retoucher Hannes Honkanen. Read more about the shoot and see the photo here:
After 9 months and 50,000 shots (only using 5.000 for the final video), my first flowers timelapse has finished. After a long work looking for flowers that would open fast, here is a list of the flowers that have been part of the timelapse: Lillium, hibiscus, carnations, orchids, dandelions, lilies, daisies, alstroemeria, peonies and nigella damask.

Después de 9 meses y 50.000 fotografías (de las cuales solo han formado parte del vídeo final unas 5.000), mi primer timelapse de flores ha terminado de formarse. Tras un largo trabajo buscando flores que abriesen rápido, aquí esta la lista de flores que han formado parte del timelapse: Lillium, hibiscus, clavelinas, orquídeas, dientes de león, lirios, margaritas, alstroemerias, peonías y nigella de damasco.

I really appreciate everyone who has taken the time to view this short montage. I casually uploaded it for a friend to see and, to my surprise, it’s been viewed by many others!
I made it as part of a personal project. It is the conclusion to a private film history class I taught. I felt the best way to end the class was to evoke just a bit of the magic that the movies have brought to us.

If you work with video, it’s vital to understand how codecs work and how they change your image. In this tutorial, I over all of the big concepts behind codecs, breaking it down into understandable pieces. While the nitty-gritty of compression algorithms can get complicated, all of the main ideas are quite simple.
Here’s an overview of the topics covered:
- What a codec is - And how it differs from a container.
- Different types of codecs - And why I frequently use 4 different codecs on a single project.
- Bit Depth - What it means and why it matters.
- Chroma Subsampling - 4:4:4, 4:2:2, and 4:2:0, and when it becomes an issue.
- Spatial Compression and Blocking - One of the most common artefacts you see with normal work.
- Temporal Compression - Long-GOP codecs, inter-frame compression, and ALL-I codecs.
- Lossless vs. Lossy compression - How image compression differs from data compression.
- Bit Rate - How to calculate bit rates and the differences between kbps/kBps/Mbps/MBps.
- Raw - Briefly, the difference between Raw, compressed, and uncompressed video.
