Sunday Night Catch-up.

Posted in Blog with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 3, 2013 by sethkoberg

Last post, I told you about this list of projects I’d like to finish by the end of this year. Here is an almost complete list of those projects, in random order:

  • Entertainment center
  • Shelving unit
  • Brick patio
  • Indoor Seed starter system
  • Green house/raised planter
  • Caj√≥n
  • Pong-sat
  • Dice portrait
  • Juggling music video
  • Photo shoot

This list isn’t complete, but it is a start.

Another thing I need to work on is regularly updating this blog. I’m going to try and post an update at least once a week, on Sunday, updating what I’ve accomplished in the past week and what I plan on accomplishing in the up coming week.

Last week, Gizmodo.com ran a photography contest called “1/1000.” You can read about it on their website, here, or in my blog post below. I’ve uploaded some extra shots to my flickr account.

Since these were taken for the 1/1000 contest at gizmodo, I set my Canon 60D to shutter priority, and adjusted the aperture and ISO settings to get a good exposure.

All post processing was done with the GIMP in Ubuntu 10.04.

Possum Kingdom

Heres another image from my first few days of owning my new camera.

The skeleton was found at my families property, which is about an hour south west of our home, in the country. A quick google search tells us that it is most likely from a Possum. The fur collar around the neck area seems to be from a deer or some other furry country creature, which we found near the skeleton.

Again, if you look at the full size image, you’ll see some harsh grain in the out of focus areas, cause by a high ISO setting.

This image was also shot using the Cinemastyle picture profile on the Canon 60D, then post processed using GIMP in Ubuntu 10.4.

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.

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…
