No Yes

Friday, February 16th, 2018

It has come to my attention that I don't own anything by the band Yes, which will have to be corrected at some point soon, because why not? 🙂

Heavy is the snow

Friday, February 16th, 2018

I have quite a few snowy landscapes photos from our trip to #Finland that are worth sharing, so please bear with me.

New Ready Player One trailer has some key elements from the book

New Ready Player One trailer has some key elements from the book

Although I gotta say, much as I'm super excited by some of the scenes in this trailer (The siege of Castle Anorak!!!) other scenes sorta give away some important plot points so I worry a little that those who will go see the movie without having read the book won't get the same satisfaction when / if these points get revealed the same way they were in the book.

6 weeks before it premieres!!

I'm really liking this Ready Player One movie poster

I'm really liking this Ready Player One movie poster

If nothing else it seems to confirm that Shoto and Daisho will in fact be in the movie. I'm also not entirely sure if the person with the backwards cap is supposed to be Haich but if it is, it seems sufficiently ambiguous to not give away the true character reveal (a high point in the book). The only character I'm not too sure about is Simon Pegg as Ogden Morrow.

I also wish they'd given +Wil Wheaton a cameo. Not only did he do a brilliant job narrating the audio book but he is actually mentioned by name in the book itself.

But my favourite thing has to be the fact that the movie comes out on Easter weekend. I can't get more meta than that ^__^

Beware the Window Light

Tuesday, February 13th, 2018

It occurred to me that I am yet to share my #21stScavengerHunt images so I took this opportunity to create a new collection where I will add my attempts at portrait photography.

This picture here is +Stephanie Rebours-Smith kindly modelling in a flattering, but not particularly warm outfit in Blackness Castle in the middle of November. I had this setting in my mind to illustrate window light affecting a vampiric figure. I was originally going to use a different castle but unfortunately it was closed the weekend I'd set for the photo shoot.

I learnt a few things there, first that even when the model is your wife, it's really not easy to convey a vision to your model. Thankfully with digital we have the luxury of multiple attempts. Second, while the noise on this picture helped for the look I was going for on this particular image, other images turned out pretty much unusable because of the amount of noise (I hope to fix that with a camera update soon). Third and last, I am very fond of specialised brushes for a quick and effective special effect.

The image was a awarded a Honourable Mention in the contest which I was very happy with.
