I don’t get why everyone is so upset. These photos are awesome and pretty unique. The dude made his own machine that slowly zooms in over a few hours. It’s not something you can just go buy. He knows his shit, he built something cool.
In another thread he said “its a machine I built for taking photos like this, it has adjustable gear ratios for different zooming speeds and can also pull focus independently of the zoom (although that feature was not used for this shot).
I dont want to give out the exact details of the machine just yet but it was made from a few milo tins and some servo motors and a few other bits and pieces. MacGuyver would be proud!”
Do you think you can build that? Do you think if he explained it to you you would? For most people, the answer is no. Quit complaining and just appreciate his work.
