Super Duper Itunes Analysis

Fair warning, I’m a bit of a data geek. And I’m stubbornly persistant when I come up with an idea that I’m curious about seeing through. So when I thought about the growth rate of my music collection within iTunes, I simply had to figure out a way to graph it.

Mixed Technology

I’ve had a package of Polaroid type 59 instant 4×5 film in my fridge for five years now and decided to use it today. After picking up a set of Photojojo iPhone lenses from Doc Pop (courtesy of a Postagram contest), Kristan and I headed to Glen Canyon to have a picnic and shoot some…

200 days of 2011

This is the last major milestone in my photo-a-day project as I’m taking a break for the foreseeable future. Shooting a picture every day is tough work, and forcing myself to do it is no longer as productive and helpful as it once was.  665 days in the past two years isn’t too shabby though, if I…

Garden Photoshoot

Sometimes you just have to set up a tripod and go jump in the backyard for a while. Today was one of those days. After it stopped raining (and the mud had a bit of time to dry out), I went out back and took a few hundred pictures. Here’s a few of those: Yep….

Gnomes / Robots / Pizza

It’s taken a few years (this was shot in Fall 2006), but I finally got my non-linear film project from UCSC’s Film 170A  (Fundamentals of Digital Media Production) up on YouTube. It had only existed on a DVD until now, using the remote to navigate between clips. Using YouTube’s Annotations feature, I was able to…

A Story And A Picture

Do you like photography? How about short stories? What about awesome amounts of creativity? Then you should probably check out A Story And A Picture – a new collaboration with Christopher Hermelin. I take the pictures and he writes a 1000 words a few days later. It’s a good system that makes for great results.

The Bonneville Salt Flats

Driving to San Francisco from Utah on I-80, you’ll pass through the Bonnevile Salt Flats shortly before crossing the Nevada state line. There’s a rest stop smack in the middle of them, and it’s definitely worth stopping for. Pull over, stretch your legs, grab your camera and take some pictures. At least that’s what we…
