Shred This

I decided to bust out the ‘ol Canon 5D and 100mm macro lens tonight to take a photo of my shredded mail. Looking at a 100% crop of the image got me thinking that even though there’s been so much hooplah about the 5D Mark II that was just announced, the original 5D is pretty darn amazing too.

Vimeo in HD

Testing out Vimeo’s HD content. Didn’t have any HD content to upload, so I made my own. Enjoy watching me open up 78 websites in Safari, then play around in ExposĂ©. Now that’s what I call good TV.

I’m curious to hear about the different types of calendars everyone uses. How are people keeping appointments these days? To the comments!

InTouch Party Photos

On Sunday night I was granted the opportunity to attend a glitzy Hollywood party, thanks to my girlfriend Anna who works at InTouch magazine. All-in-all, it was an absolute blast. Being the photo junky I am, at first I wanted to bring my best photo gear to document the night. But on second thought I figured it would be best to go with my more discreet Canon G9.

Just how war photographers prefer the smaller size and general unobtrusiveness of Leicas and other rangefinders, I found myself feeling the same way with my G9. While the hired photographers were fumbling around with their Nikon D3s and Canon 1Ds Mark IIIs (which were bulked up even more with flash rigs), I was able to get right down into the trenches and pull off some decent candids where a larger camera would have been a distraction.

You’ll notice that I took a lot of pictures of Paris Hilton because, well, when you’re a photographer standing next to Paris Hilton there’s not much else you can think of doing.

Rock Bland

The fact that I can hit 95% accuracy while playing Blitzkrieg Bop on expert level in Rock Band is something to be proud of. But the fact that I posted a video of myself doing it to my blog is something to be horribly horribly ashamed of.

Rug Addict

If you’re a professional geek like me, making an important home decorating decision is impossible without firing up the ol Photoshop. A great example of this is the rigmarole I recently went through to make sure a new rug would be a worthwhile purchase. Whether or not you’ll like the rug is debatable, but my Photoshop skills are totally slammin.
