Hey. Hi. Hello. Wow, it’s been quite a while since I’ve posted anything here. But now the semester’s over and I’ve got time to do things again! So I figured I’d let all you wonderful people taking the time to read this know some of what’s been going.
At Classes End
Guess I’ll start here, since I’ve already mentioned it. All things considered, it was a pretty good semester. If you didn’t get a chance to catch the post when my Environmental Portraiture class ended earlier this semester be sure to take a quick look. I’ll eventually be adding some other photos I’ve worked on during the semester here and there to The Observation Deck galleries.
I was also in a class called Portfolio Projects, which is basically just a fancy name for working on one big photo project the entire semester. Not quite finished with those images yet though so it’ll be a bit before everybody gets to see them.
Let me tell you something about Cyber Monday deals. They’re either magical or miserable. I happened to get lucky this year and got a fantastic deal on a Lytro camera. What’s that? Well, Lytro is a company that makes a light field camera they also named the Lytro. The tech powering the Lytro, called light field technology, is pretty fascinating and works rather differently than your standard camera. Check out the Lytro.com website and the Wikipedia article if you want to know more.
Once I’ve spent a while using it I think I’m going to do a proper write up with all my thoughts. Expect that post coming sometime in January. So far it’s been pretty cool to play with so I’m excited to see what I can come up with. In the mean time, here’s a test shot I did of my Christmas tree.

Well, that’s all I’ve got for now. Feels like I’m forgetting something and I’m probably going to remember right after I click “publish” on this. Either way, I’m gonna sign off on the blog posts until 2014. Apologies for the lack of content lately, but I’ll be back at it regularly in January. Merry Christmas everybody, and a happy New Year!
