New Toy

Here is the first image I’ve shot, edited, and uploaded w/ my new camera, the Canon 60D. The graininess was caused due to a high ISO setting, which I neglected to lower since I’m still getting used to the digital SLR workings, and quite frankly didn’t notice

I have a few years formal education in photography, but that was using old school 35mm film, which doesn’t let you change ISO since that is set by the film and not a camera setting.

I guess this is just one of those things you get used to working w/ when dealing with new hardware.

The photo was shot with Technicolor’s new Cinestyle picture style uploaded to the 60D, which produces a flat image. Once uploaded to your computer, you can adjust the color by manipulating the Curves, Levels, Saturation, etc.

Image post-processing was done using GIMP on Ubuntu 10.4.

Let the blogging begin

Blog #1. Here we go.

Hopefully, this site will be a cluster-fuck of all my creative endeavors. Spanning multiple disciplines, from photography to electronics, and everywhere in between. I hope to demonstrate my skills, talents, and ideas, but most importantly, string you along for the ride and hopefully teach you something along the way.

Let the party begin…
