Now I am an artist

March 21st, 2009

So for the last few weeks I’ve been seeing a post on Craigslist about an art show at Cafe Montemarte.  The theme is  7 Deadly Sins.  So first I looked up what the seven sins actually were, and then tried to find some of my photos that illustrated them.  I didn’t think that any of my work would actually be chosen, but it didn’t take me long and it was fun looking through some of my older work.  I submitted five images, and three were chosen.  You can see them below and at the show starting Monday March 23rd.

Allison at the union

February 27th, 2009

Allison and I went to the Memorial Union on the UW Campus.  Technically since we’re not members or students we’re not allowed, but we look like we belong there so no one said anything.  It took us a few minutes to find somewhere to shoot. We started in the Great Hall which is on the 3rd floor I think.  It’s a very strange building with lots of stairs.  Most of the pictures are taken there, or across the hall.  Then we went outside.  See my previous post for background on that.  My favorite picture (shown below) of the shoot was taken on the lake.


You can see all of the pictures from the shoot in the gallery below.

It keeps getting bigger…

…the sensor on my camera.  I haven’t thought about this before but it just popped into my head today.  My first camera was the Minolta Dimage A1.  It was a 5 megapixel with an 8.8mm x 6.6mm sensor.  Here’s an image from that camera.

My next camera was the Minolta Maxxum 7D.  It was a 6 megapixel camera with a 23.5 x 15.7 mm sensor.  Almost double the size.  A picture from that camera.

And then we have my current camera.  A Sony α900.  It has a whopping 24 megapixel sensor that is 35.9 x 24.0 mm.  Not quite as much an improvement between my first and second cameras but still a large increase.  And a picture from this camera.
