Midrange Reflections

Just to let everyone know, there has been a lot going on behind the scenes for me. I have recently gotten my own webspace on a server, which I am currently setting up now. I'll keep you informed on the status of the new site. I think I will publically launch it when I get my Canon Digital Rebel XT. Speaking of which, thats the second piece of news. Within the next week or two (hopefully) I will be picking up a Digital Rebel XT. =D

Spiral of Impending Doom Part 2

This gives a different prespective of the similar picture posted earlier. Except this time, this is a macro shot. I know, near the left of the picture looks like an atom bomb blew up or something... but that's just the sun. ;)

I want a new camera!

I have recently been looking around for Digital SLRs to buy, so that the Nikon Coolpix 5400 can belong to my family again and I can have a professional camera to take my pictures with. I've heard nothing but praises of Canon's Digital Rebel cameras, and so I did some research. Turns out they just released a new version of it called Digital Rebel XT, and it has a few things I dont really need (such as the 8MP sensor). That means the Digital Rebel is going to go down in price to make room for the XT!

Ahhhh how I want the Digital Rebel so bad. Its the only D-SLR thats reasonably priced (sub $1000). All the other ones are more like $1300+.

Anyways, chances of me getting this camera are pretty slim since I highly doubt I'd be able to pull out the money for this out of my ass. Until then, that little Rebel will just remain in my dreams, and I'll keep struggling to take shots with my Nikon.

Ceiling Spider

I had trouble choosing which of the three of these shots to put up, but in the end the "darker" picture prevailed. It was hard to get a good shot, lying on the floor and all.

Screw me

You must excuse me and my lack of creativity in this photo. I haven't really found time to do much picture taking lately. Expect more in the days to come.

Thats right. RAW! I finally did the right thing and gave my camera a long deserving firmware upgrade. I now have the RAW mode at my disposal, and guess what kiddies... That means super high quality uber looking pictures.

I shall commence the new photos tomorrow hopefully. No picture for today, as I am getting used to the new mode and I'm installing Photoshop updates so that it supports my camera's RAW files. These files are HUGE! 8mb for one picture! I took a shot of my backyard, and holy cow it blew me away. Anyways, I guess that means the "FINE, 1280x960" mode is being replaced by "RAW, *insert huge resolution that I couldnt memorize here*" =D

Eternal Rising

Shot was taken at around 11:30pm last night. I think it has quite a lot of depth. Comments welcome.

Greyscale Branches

I took another shot a few days after a similar shot a few days ago, this time its B&W.

Playing around with macro mode and selective focusing. Simple enough.

See you there! =)

Macro Doll

I decided that I wanted to use macro mode on something, so this is one of those pictures that I took. It was difficult to keep my hands from moving around too much, but I think this one turned out alright.

Mmmm... Branches... *drool*

I took this pic about 10 minutes ago (along with some others that I will post eventually). I don't think I am very satisfied with this shot, but out of the numerous revisions of this same shot that I had, I chose this one as my favourite. Opinions appreciated.

These have been some slow few days...

These past few days have gone by so eerily slowly yet fast. Uneventful too. We've had snow storm after snow storm with no snow day at all, and test after test to deal with, plus course selections and forms for field trips, etc. It's been quite the stressful week.

On the plus side, I got a hair cut, ate at Burger King for the first time in a few weeks (I wont let that happen again) and I'm getting the hang of programming in Java. Completed my first set of beginner programs.

It seems I have lost all sense of grammar and spelling, thank god for spell check (and common sense). Slow on pictures, yes, but that will be fixed in due time.

'Till next time folks, I bid thee good night. (It could potentially sound like I'm on some sort of crack right now, but I guarantee you I am not.... or at least I think I'm not... =|)

Dominican Skys

I pulled this one out of my archives (that means it has the dreaded date, and low resolution) Anyways, this shot was taken quite a while back in Dominican Republic. I looked up, took a shot, and only realized how nice it came out when I got home.
