From today on, Portrait of Science is online! I shared interviews and pictures with two scientists - one Research Group Leader working on brain development and an Aussie PhD Student working on an exciting question on how does an embryo develop into a full organism. Every Friday, I plan to post pictures and interview with one scientist. By scientist I mean a person contributing to the research, be it Group Leader, Postdoctoral Fellow, PhD Student, Technician or Staff Scientist. I hope I will be determined enough to make it truly long term project and keep it interesting. From my point of view, I would like to use it as an opportunity to grow photographically. I would like to produce high quality pictures and make it technically demanding. That is why I decided to use Bokehrama aka Brenizer Method for producing the pictures. Each headshot will be done out of three separate pictures and the wider angle picture is produced from anything from 20-90 single pictures. All this will good old buddy of mine - 50mm f/1.4 lens. OK.. Enough of technical jibber jabber. I hope the answers provided by interviewees will be interesting as well. As this is maybe more crucial to broader public who will never notice the Brenizer effect anyway..
As this is almost the very beginning of the project, I truly welcome any feedback and constructive criticism. Feel free to visit the links, look at the pictures, read the interviews and comment below or send a message through facebook.
