DOF Adapter

I built a depth of field (DOF) adapter. In most consumer digital cameras the sensor size is smaller than in film cameras. The light in film camera gets projected onto usually a 35mm film.

In January of 2008 I spent a week in Bali. After talking to some local artists, they agreed to give me some painting lessons. For a whole week straight all I did was paint. Get up at 9AM, spent half the day painting alongside Made Jelih, then spent the other half of the day painting […]

I was disappointed that the article was small and the review did not touch upon the meaning or subtle nuances of the art […]
