So many new people here and across the fediverse! I guess it is time for another addition to my #introductions thread. :)
4 examples of my work below, and more upthread. :)
I now have a growing thread of #introductions I guess? :)
Below are 4 of my photographs created using different devices and techniques. You can also see more of my work upthread. :)
so #introductions again. :)
Ok enough tags. Here are a few examples of my work:
Talent is a myth.
Don't let anyone tell you that you're not "gifted" enough to do art. All it takes is patience, focus and discipline, and those can be trained.
Look for the right teachers and learning material, surround yourself with artists better than yourself, and generally work a shit ton - you can make it.
Prismo is an open federated alternative to sites like Reddit or Hacker News.
It's still under development, but the first instance is online here:

I made a #pinhole lens for my sony a6000 from an unused lens converter aluminum foil and masking tape to demo my students.
You don't need a 3-D printer and dedicated workshop to be a #maker (although they do help if you have access to them - which I don't 😉 )
The hardest part was to center the hole really. I did a first one with multiple holes punched until I found it, then I created a second one using the first as template

I think it's not too much of a waste if I repeat here two simple tricks with #ffmpeg in order to upload audio as video to mastodon:
1) test-tv image/animation:
ffmpeg -f lavfi -i testsrc -i AUDIOFILE -shortest OUTPUT.webm
2) album cover or similar:
ffmpeg -loop 1 -i IMAGE.png -i AUDIOFILE -s 200x200 -shortest OUTPUT.webm
* with -s WWWxHHH you can adjust the size/resol. of the video
* instead of webm you can safely use mp4 as output extension - it will create an mp4 with x264/aac codecs
Opportunity rover on Mars has sent it's last image. Sometime afterward it sent a final message:
"It is dark and my battery is low."
After the planetwide sandstorm of 2018, Opportunity was covered in dust and the windy season didn't clear it off. Now it is winter and Opportunity, unable to move to keep warm, will freeze.
