Stuck In Customs: Touring Vienna

Tips on Symmetry in Vienna

While looking at today’s photo, it reminded me of our fun photowalk there and these cool tips!

Daily Photo – Touring Vienna

While in Vienna, Olya and I spent quite a bit of time in this museum doing some filming. I can’t remember exactly what we were filming while here, but maybe it’s in that video above. I think we still have quite a bit of video stuff that we still have not published! 🙂

Stuck In Customs: Perfect Water in Aruba

Machine Elf 44 – Floral Quartz – 4K | Trey Ratcliff & Sam Wave

Ready for a juicy new organic Machine Elf? Sure you are! This one is another creation that includes custom music from ‘Sam Wave’ which you are sure to enjoy. The idea for this one came to me from a colourful meditation where I did a deep dive into an oil painting with infinite recursion that folds, unfolds, paints, and unpaints its way into a visual meditation. When Sam started making the soundtrack he mentioned that “it feels like a flower internalising its underwater getaway… a floral quartz. We hope you enjoy.

Daily Photo – Perfect Water in Aruba

Of all the Caribbean places I’ve been to, I think Aruba may have some of the best water of the lot. I don’t think it’s any more “clear” than the water from most islands, but it’s the pure white sand that really gives it that soft, milky feel. Also, feeling all that white sandy powder under your feet is also incredibly soothing and calming.

Well, today Passport Sunday Members are in for a real treat because I give a little behind-the-scenes and how-to of my latest fractal.

The Making Of

Today’s video is a little bit long, but there is a lot of good information in there about the creative process and a little bit about starting up a new business. I don’t know if anyone else will like using this tool as much as I do, but I wanted to share it nonetheless! Oh, and it’s a free tool, so if you grab it and create something please do share. 🙂 Enjoy!

Daily Photo – A Still Frame from Machine Elf 83

Creating these animations almost has nothing to do with Photography other than the desire to create a really cool frame. It reminds me a lot of taking photos of complex architecture… except you get to build your own. As long as I know I have a good frame, I’m sure the rest of it is gonna be amazing.
