#TBT Impressions of Ghent

Here is a new Throwback Thursday!! In 2010 I visited the beautiful city of Ghent in Belgium during the celebrations of at least 3 festivals! It was the Belgium National Day, the Ten Days Off clubbing festival as well as the Festival of Street Theatre.

I had a fantastic time, the city was alive with very friendly people, stages in each city square, a river side music festival, lots of really interesting street performances and mass tango dancing etc etc. I really felt I could stay for much longer and am looking forward to returning soon.

Throwback Thursday – A dark homage to obsolete technology

A few years ago I made this dark homage to the multi format transfer department affectionately refered to as Mufty, where carefully locked away deep in the vaults, obsolete kit such as the Sondor, RTI 6120, Cintel Y-front and Bosch Fernseh have found resting places.

Colour Infrared Video Imagery

I’ve been experimenting with colour infrared video and photography for some time, photography is easier due to the IR blocking filter on my stills camera being quite weak, plus manipulating RAW images in Photoshop and Gimp using  colour channel swapping is very effective. However video is another matter entirely, the IR blocking filter on my Canon HV40 is quite strong so filming on very bright sunny days is essential, then manipulating the imagery in After Effects can be long and unpredictable, film grain/noise needs to be removed, channel swapping in video is not very clean so many more effects are needed to produce a ‘respectable’ clip.

I’ve put some IR video clips together in this edit to give you an idea of what can be achieved.

Here is a November desktop wallpaper for you, it was shot at the Lea Valley river in East London using a Nikon D70 and a Hoya IR filter.
