Padres Petco Park Qualcomm box panorama

Been a while since any of my teams have been to the box. It's been upgraded since the last time and, as bad as the Padres are, they rallied to win against Arizona.

Wedding photobooth instant camera Polaroid

I don't yet have the time or materials to do a big ol' effortpost on mine and Jes's wedding, but here are a few tidbits.

J took the brothers and I around to a few breweries the Thursday before. I hadn't yet seen the new Alesmith location.

Mt Soledad La Jolla rental house panorama

The parents rented a huge house on Mt. Soledad. I kind of wish I got to enjoy it more.

The guest board was pretty fun to do. Wedding scheme paint + vinyls + clearcoat, then paint pens for everyone to write their messages.

The photobooth was a fun project that I probably didn't need to take on myself - which is to say I gathered materials and dumped it on Rob, who got the thing dialed in.

I considered digital, but the reliability of instant film made the most sense for something that I hoped wouldn't have to be babysat. The most popular format was Instax, but it seemed way too small to me. The classic Polaroid format is still available, but insanely expensive. I settled on Instax Wide with a pretty clever Lomography camera.

I thought to use continuous light umbrellas to supplement the flash, but Rob hypothesized and proved that it would result in motion blur. So he set the sb800 up to flash trigger into an umbrella.

Props were fun to shop for, I decided against a backdrop because I wanted the photobooth to shoot back at the dance floor - so that the photobooth was obviously at the event. Unfortunately, space dictated that it be in a separate room.

Pat David: Film Emulation Presets in G'MIC (GIMP) [Addendum]

Well, it's been a busy week. I thought it would be nice to post a small update on the current status of these film emulation presets. In my first post on these, I described what I was doing. At that time, I had only a few different film emulations to go with it. I released a couple of more earlier this week as well (instant films). Here is the current types of film available, with sample plates at their lowest settings to show what they look like (and a preview of some new stuff comin...

The Nikon F50 looks like a modern camera but is reality was based on the 1980's F-401 series. But with worse handling.
