From the "photography" category:
I wrote about this a while back, but we’ve been recording (at least) five seconds of video every day of 2013. Each month I’ve been compiling a “5 Seconds of _______ (insert month)” video that rolls and cuts an often very random summary of that month, set to music, and not-sloppily produced either… if I say so myself. To boot, we haven’t missed a single day. The really good news: as of today we have less than 50 days to go in this massive effort. I, for one, will be both a little sad and a lot happy when it’s done; It’s been a lot of work, but a lot more fun.
With an upcoming trip I’ve been contemplating my camera options. The subject: a big city. The options include four different bits of technology, including (a) the point-and-shoot for the carry-around quick pics of anything and everything and just to cover off all the bases, (b) the dSLR for some classy city-scape photography and fine-tuned photo expeditions, (c) the GoPro for some steady-shot HD footage, and (d) the cell-phone camera for any quick-shot, live-blogging and social media updates. I think I’ll sit down sometime before we leave and write out a more in-depth post about this, but for now… decisions, decisions, decisions.
After trying another round of too-late Autumn photography this morning on my run, I almost hate to say it: the season seems to have passed. The leaves are largely down, the greens are mostly turned browns, and the windy and chill is enough to drive you crazy if you’re out in the weather too long. I wrote a sad post yesterday, extolling my love of Autumn photography, and (even though I’d kinda hoped to prove them wrong this morning) my sad predictions about the too-short fall photo season were spot on. *sigh* Alas, it’s almost time to start up that winter album on my gallery: or maybe just hope this Halloween is more photogenic than last year.
