EXIF Data Scheme

Pursuant to a previous post, "Photo Backup Scheme," I've settled on a scheme for editing the EXIF data in my digital photos (and sometime in the not-near future, my scanned film photos). The changes I make to EXIF data in my digital photos falls into three categories: (1) corrections; (2) identifying information; and (3) geodata.

The Week in Project 365 Photos [2009-W06]

Hey, this is a late post on this topic, but it's not like I'm running a high traffic site here. Here are my photos for Project 365 from a week ago. Tomorrow I'll post photos from this week, thus completing a manipulation of space-time by separating a week by a day. Or whathaveyou.

The Big Lebowski at Barack Obama's Inauguration

I love making panoramas. You probably know this already. Today I found this 59,783 X 24,658 pixel panorama (that everyone else apparently already knows about) from Barack Obama's inauguration by David Bergman.

Go look at it. Now. It's fantastic. And enormous.

Now, zoom in. Zoom in behind President Obama...

Wait. Is that The Big Lebowski?

On Sprinting

This morning I read an article by Seth Godin that I liked: "Sprint!"

The best way to overcome your fear of creativity, brainstorming, intelligent risk taking or navigating a tricky situation might be to sprint.

Photo Backup Scheme

I'm obsessed with the idea of how to backup the digital life that I've strewn across the internet and also accumulated on my laptop. Last year -- and I suppose this year also, if I turned it on -- my laptop was dying. When I was at ISU in France in summer 2006, I fell asleep on my laptop and busted the adapter. After two years with a power adapter borrowed from a European computer, the cord melted, sparks flew, etc. Naturally, I blame the French.

The Week in Project 365 Photos [2009-W05]

This week, I focused on taking 15 second exposures for my Project 365 photos. Some of them turned out pretty good -- I like "The Tower" and "New World." It would be a lot easier if I owned a tripod; instead, most of these photos are shot from ground level with my camera propped on my bag. The long exposures have a cool effect on the scenery -- especially when there are clouds in the background.

Four years ago today, I woke up.

Twenty-five straight days of Project 365 and no sign of slowing down yet...
