Jon Grepstad – Photography and Texts
Jon GrepstadI was born in Norway and have lived nearly all my life here. I studied English, French and literary theory at the University of Bergen in Norway, and also spent a year in the US at Wesleyan University, Middletown, Connecticut, where I studied English and American literature, Italian and Latin.

When I was a young boy and teenager I was fascinated by woodworking and mechanics. I admired my grandfather for building an organ from a kit. I also admired one of my uncles, an arts and craft teacher, who built a beautiful fishing rod from bamboo and hickory. From the age of eleven I read regularly the Norwegian edition of Mechanix Illustrated. In my early teens I built a camera tripod based on an article in that magazine.

I also developed an interest in visual form and photography at an early age. My father, who was a teacher in a countryside community, had a Kodak Brownie E. My own first camera was a 35 mm Dacora Dignette with a Steinheil Cassar lens, which my parents bought me second hand in 1959. The camera served me well for years and I still have it.

I started working more seriously on photography in the late 1980s. In 1991 I built my first large format camera of oak, brass and aluminum, a monorail camera with friction focusing. In 1996 I published the first edition of my book Building a Large Format Camera, which has been used by ardent amateur photographers and woodworkers all over the world. I updated and revised the book in 2000. That can now be downloaded free of charge from my website.

Since 1990 I have also been doing pinhole photography, which is now my main photographic activity. My online article “Pinhole Photography – History, Images, Cameras, Formulas”, written in 1996 and updated regularly, has been translated into several languages and is one of the resources of the Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day.

I have recently published four limited edition books of pinhole photography:

Camera Obscura. Ten Pinhole Photographs. Oslo 2013. ISBN 978-82-993938-2-9
Pinhole Images 1992–2014. Oslo 2014. ISBN 978-82-993938-3-6
Föhr, Svolvær, Hydra. Fifteen Pinhole Photographs. Oslo 2015. ISBN 978-82-993938-4-3
Oslo Revisited. Fourteen Pinhole Photographs. Oslo 2016. ISBN 978-82-993938-5-0
I am currently working on a book of pinhole photographs from Rome.

I now spend my time on photography, the study of languages, writing and traveling.

PS: The header photograph at my website is a pinhole image which I made in December 1992 in Stardalen, Jølster, Norway.

My camera was a self-made camera for 120 roll film. The distance between pinhole and film plane was 38 mm.

La Cámara Gran Formato
Este taller nace alimentado por la percepción de que la cámara de gran formato "goza" de un grado de desconocimiento muy alto entre el público general y cierta marginación en las escuelas en España.

Esta metodología de trabajo está implantada en países con larga tradición fotográfica siendo su uso cotidiano y, para ciertas disciplinas, indiscutible.

La cámara de gran formato es utilizada tanto por fotógrafos comerciales como por autores prestigiosos con reconocimiento en el panorama artísitco mundial.

El objetivo de este taller es familiarizar a los alumnos con estos equipos y la disciplina de trabajo inherente a ellos con el fin de situar esta herramienta entre sus recursos creativos.

The Photographer's Ephemeris
The Photographer's Ephemeris (TPE) helps plan outdoor photography shoots in natural light, particularly landscape and urban scenes. It’s a map-centric sun and moon calculator: see how the light will fall on the land, day or night, for any location on earth. Created for photographers by a photographer in 2009, TPE is a software tool available for desktop and mobile devices to help you plan outdoor photography shoots to ensure the best possible natural light. TPE was conceived in 2008, following a weekend landscape photography course in Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado. After a classroom session that required use of paper-based topographic maps, protractor, calculator, pencil and ruler, it seemed like an equivalent digital tool built on internet mapping services might be something whose time had come. The original TPE for Desktop (an Adobe AIR application) was released in beta in March 2009, and quickly found a following online. An iPhone app was released in April 2010, and was expanded to include a dedicated user interface for iPad tablets later that year. TPE for Android was released in November 2011. In September 2014, the original TPE for Desktop was replaced by a modern, browser-based web app. The new app supports all the features of the original, but offers the opportunity for much easier integration and linking with other apps in the TPE family and beyond. Our iOS app reached version 3.0 in early 2015, and has been enhanced significantly over the past year to include Location Synchronisation (for both iOS and the web app), Skyfire, Night Mode, and more. We’ve also improved integration with TPE’s sister app The Photographer’s Transit, a digital field of view and shot planning application. The Photographer’s Transit is available on both iPhone and iPad as of version 2.0, released in December 2015. Since its original release, TPE in its various versions has been used by hundreds of thousands of photographers, both amateur and professional, in over 200 countries. Stephen Trainor recently recorded an episode for Fred Weymouth’s Lens and Landscape podcast, which includes much of the history and background to TPE: We look forward to continuing to update the applications and to seeing how planning your shot helps deliver great results for photographers around the world. TPE has become the premier tool for outdoor photographers planning shots in natural light. Please check out the links below to see how TPE is being used by photographers today.

Pinhole at Stanford.edu
This is a website devoted to understanding, building and enjoying the art of making cameras without lenses, simple cameras with simple lenses, and images without cameras at all.

The 'classic' pinhole camera was the Quaker Oatmeal box with a sheet of photo paper inside. Alas, Quaker stopped making oatmeal boxes that were useful for this purpose. All is not lost though, a pinhole camera can be made from any light tight container with a small hole in it. A few daring people have even used their own mouths!

Why pinhole? Why not just use a 'normal' camera? They are simple, a hole, a container, a piece of film or photo paper. They are SLOW, exposures are seconds to minutes to hours to days long thus giving a totally different view of time itself. They are in 'focus' from near to far, essentially everything, from the bug on the ground to the distant mountains. The 'focus' is not sharp, but dreamy, surreal, of imagination.

The Pinhole Gallery | Since 1996, real images by real people.
The pinhole camera is proof positive that fundamental principles do not change. Euclid demonstrated the image-forming possibilities of the pinhole in 300 B.C. In the 16th century, Leonardo da Vinci is credited with giving a description of the pinhole camera more or less as we think of it today.

There are, when it comes to making photographs with what amounts to no more than a box and a hole, more than a few sceptics and honest doubters who, from lack of actual participation dismiss pinhole cameras as a mere novelty.

A pinhole camera is easy to build. The camera can be made from almost anything. From oatmeal tins and boxes to made from scratch cameras of wood or sturdy cardboard. There are several places such as the Pinhole Resource in Santa Fe where you can buy cameras made of wood or kits.

How does a pinhole work: First the dull stuff…for anyone who has studied photography and optics the theory of image formation is (or should be) well known…but, there are a few million people out there who aren’t aware of the difference in this theory between pinholes and lenses…sounds about right, after all it’s not the sort of thing one talks about over breakfast, is it?!

Ok…we see things because light rays reflect off of them and these reflected rays form an image on the retina. A camera is a mechanical eye, so it might be useful to think of it in these terms; we use the term ‘ray’ of light when we talk about using lenses to form an image. We use the term ‘beam’ of light when we talk about making images with a pinhole. The difference is one of dimension. A ray of light is defined as a line of light, while a beam of light is defined as a bundle of parallel rays.

Light falling on an object reflects off in all directions. When a lens is used to make an image rays from the same point on the object are reflected to its surface, this forms a cone of light. As the rays pass through the lens they are bent or refracted and as they are made to to disperse, they are again formed into a cone, the diminishing end of which is the point of focus…got that? Consider this…a photograph is really composed of points of light that vary in size. If the points are too large the image will not be sharp.

Pinhole images are formed by a beam of light, the diameter of which governs its sharpness. The diameter of the beam is determined by the diameter of the pinhole…so, a really big pinhole will make a less sharp image and a very small pinhole will make a very sharp; but not as sharp as a lens, image…easy!…right?

The Intrepid Camera Company
Here at Intrepid we are trying to make large format photography accessible to a much wider audience, as its a particularly hard part of the photographic world to get involved with; often due to the price.

This is a real shame. Large format is probably the most rewarding and true type of photography you can experience; you are completely transported to a magical world underneath that dark cloth; nothing compares to composing an image on the ground glass, and prints made from the giant negatives have a quality to them that is like nothing else.

If you are completely new to large format, then the Intrepid 4x5 is a fantastic place to start- and if you are an old hand at all things 4x5 then an Intrepid could be the light weight, compact and affordable camera you have been looking for!

Bitsnoop P2P Search | 23.9 Million Valid Torrents
The best torrent search in the world. Aggregated torrents from numerous sites and groups, automated verification, super-fast search. Download millions of torrents with TV series, movies, music, PC/Playstation/Wii/Xbox games and more at Bitsnoop.

You came to our site to search and download stuff. Not to be showered in tons of ads.
Bitsnoop.com is a torrent indexer. Our robots roam the internets and get you torrents you want.

We have created the architecture and software that powers Bitsnoop. From scratch concentrating in search quality and usability. We wanted to build the biggest and best P2P search system in the internet. We're one of the biggest already.

Magnet links at Bitsnoop are generated with TrackerMatch technology. Where each record scraped gets analyzed and filtered to exclude typos, errors and just junk in tracker URLs. You would be amazed how many torrents there are with junk in tracker addresses (about 15% of them). We know how to deal with backup tracker hosts, redirects, DNS aliases, tracker clusters etc. so you don't have to.

If any of thousands trackers that we access knows about torrent, and they are "good" trackers, it will get added to the Magnet link you get. So you get more trackers and better speed in torrents than with other sites.

We know how to manage, keep clean and verify hundreds of gigabytes of data.

FakeSkan works like a team of data analysts checking torrent to determine if it is fake. But instead of persons we employ robots for this, which allows us to process insane amounts of torrents very fast.

How does it work? First the robot check if the torrent can be flagged "Verified" automatically — based on measuring different variables.
And then then, for each and every torrent we run a bunch of checks (names, structure, file sizes, etc.) and adjust torrent rating (adding votes). Suspicious torrents will be lowered in search results and marked as such. Or even flagged as "Fake". You can see how many times robots voted at statistics page.

We keep an eye on torrent releases, users' votes and P2P forums — to add new FakeScan checks. Seeing "Verified" next to torrent name means that you can download it with no worries (99% of the time).

The Audi TT Forum | U.K. First Audi TT Forum
The TT Forum has the information about the Audi TT, including specifications, tuning, discounts on the Mk1 and Mk2.

The TT Forum is an independent website whose focus is on ownership of the Audi TT, from its initial conception to current production.

The site was launched in June, 2000, by Jason Taylor (Jae) of iCandi, Munich, Germany in response to a lack of presence in the UK for a TT website. Back then, the only TT website was on Audi World, which had a very different layout and navigation.

Within one day of launch, the new website had over 200 members! Today we have over 56,000!

The site is now owned by Tyre Forums, part of VerticalScope Inc. Visit the websites here: www.tyreforums.com www.verticalscope.com

The TT Forum and its members are supported by UK based volunteer administrators, moderators and member helpers from the forum community itself. The website server maintenance and community support are also provided by the forum owners' support and UK based sales staff.

We also have contacts within Audi AG Press and Audi UK who assist with product information and test vehicles attending shows and events.

We deliver, on average, over 18 million pages of information to over 60,000 unique users from all around the globe with over 40 new registrations and over 580 new posts per day.
