  • Tiny Planet – short guide

    As I have promised last time, today I would like to show you how to create a Tiny Planet – like picture. You will need basically two things: panorama picture and Adobe Photoshop. The best panorama, from my experience, is the one based on the 360°. The reason is quite simple – in this kind…

  • Bern Adventure

    Last Photo Adventures took me to Munsingen and Bern. The main point of the trip on Sunday was to visit Photo Munsingen, the biggest photo exhibition/meeting in Switzerland. I was also curious how other panels look like and we were lucky to still see some photo exhibitions. Among many different topics like Japanese winter, act pictures,…
  • Hiking day in Filzbach

    For a long time we wanted to visit Filzbach and mountains in the neighborhood because of the excellent view on the Walensee and Walenstadt and a cable-car which allows to start hiking already at the decent height. It is also good to mention that it takes only 1h to get there from Zurich HB. We took…
  • Night Sky movies!

    New Raspberry Pi Camera Water-sealed housing

    Raspberry Pi baser Night Sky camera is back on track! I had almost 1 month break with night sky recording because of the very rainy April. Camera was not protected how it should be and got some water inside the lens. Fortunately rice can really make magic with water-exposed electronics. I was wondering for quite…
