This is the first time I've allowed a guest article on my blog. The photos are beautiful, and I think it fits well within this website. Note that the photo's aren't mine.
With so many subjects a photographer can cover when it comes to street photography, Michael Hess picked one particular topic that has had a very “colourful” yet underrated journey. The German street photographer has recently published a photography book that tackles the ever-present yet undermined bingo culture of UK.
“I played bingo one night in 2005, just out of curiosity about what went on inside the big old converted cinema near my house. I was instantly fascinated by the characters,” Hess shares the moment where he decided to pursue documenting such a decades-old culture in his official photography website. “The next time I visited, I took my camera. 4 years and more than 60 bingo halls later I was ready to make Bingo & Social Club.”
New laptops often are shipped with the Windows product key stored in the EFI/BIOS/whatever. The result is that you don't get a product key prompt any more. Great for reinstalls, as copying the key by hand is very error-prone. However, when I wanted to install a fresh Win8 Pro version, the embedded "Home" version key wasn't accepted and the installer did not ask for another key. It was simply impossible to install Windows 8 Pro.
This blog post will describe how I got it installed in the end.
Last weekend Amsterdam was visited by a great group of over 250 Blender professionals and enthousiast, for the Blender Conference 2013. This year it was my pleasure to give a workshop about my research, and how I use Blender to visualize my result.
For the attendants (and other interested people), I've put my presentation, the Blender file and accompanying SQLite database online: http://stuvel.eu/files/bcon_2013_sybren_workshop.7z
You can still see the workshop online on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wt8WdSvaRms&feature=player_detailpage#t=620 (the first 10 minutes is just people leaving the previous workshop, and me setting up).
Speciaal voor mijn fotografie is er vandaag een nieuwe website gelanceerd: http://stuvelfoto.nl/
Binnenkort zal ook stuvel.eu een verandering doorgaan, aangezien alle fotografie-gerichte onderdelen nu een nieuw plekje op http://stuvelfoto.nl/ hebben.
