English Tea

My new mates and I had some tea at the Regency Hotel last evening sponsored by our study abroad program. Here’s a bit of the action.

Photo of the Day

January 4, 2010

This photograph was shot on a Canon T1i. The aperture was set to 8 and the shutter was open for about 25 seconds. 

Can you see Orion? He's smack dab in the middle of the telephone wires.

And there's Seanie out there in the snow.

It would be helpful if anyone had any tips on reducing grain and making the stars appear more clear. It’s difficult when you look through the lens and all you see is black.

New Year’s Day

No this isn’t a commercial for Canon.

After several video pieces published on the Web site of S.P. Sullivan, it is time he met his match.

This video of mister Sullivan was shot on a Canon T1i. (Though I wish it was a Mark.)

The original music was recorded in GarageBand through a Tascam mixer with a Takamine acoustic guitar. It was edited with Final Cut Pro in the H.264 codec (unfortunately the playback isn’t very smooth). And I do need a tripod.

Camera Obscura Test 01

For at least a year I have be meaning to put together a camera obscura. Finally, today, I busted out the black garbage bags and masking tape.

I covered one of two windows with a sheet. I used four garbage bags (two layers) to cover the window where my light source was coming from. Masking tape was used to bind everything together and cover up any cracks of light.

Not wanting to cut into the garbage bags and waste the plastic, I took a toilet paper tube and mounted it between the top frame of plastic and the bottom frame of plastic.

A manila envelope also helped me out a bit.

Now you will have to turn your head up side down, or your computer.

A white sheet or having white walls would have definitely helped!

This erie looking one is of melting snow on the ground.

That’s it for now! Of course, there will be more to come. Hopefully with white walls.

This is the most sequential thing I’ve shot on the Canon T1i. Clearly its automatic settings aren’t the greatest in low light – it’s no 5d Mark, but I think the results are great compared to other still cameras that shoot video.

There are a few continuity errors. Feel free to point them out. I’ll keep a tally. 

Not too sure how to categorize this piece, but one might consider calling it a documentary montage. It’s not really an essay. For the record, the cat jumped up there herself (poor manners).

More to come!
