CVP Returns!

After many an exam and tense wait for the results, CVP returns to, well… CVP! Due to my being back, there’s a bunch of stuff that I’m hoping to do this summer, photography-wise.

No, not me. My brother and his mildly startling red suitcase make an appearance. Also, bright orange shoes.

First thing, eyes. Specifically, macro of eyes. I had tried this before with mirrors and a tripod, but had too many problems focusing to do it effectively. However, I now have a field monitor, which means I don’t have to mess around with mirror shenannigans. This should make the task of focusing much simpler.

Sadly, this flowerbox is no longer here. I sometimes wonder where it’s gone. Flowerboxthieves.jpg.

In addition, the summer has yielded another job. I’m not yet at liberty to say what exactly it is, other than that it involves some varied photography, including portraits and possibly a bunch of still life. Rest assured though, I’ll be posting about it if and when I can.

Stained glass at night. Unfortunately, not the most stable shot, and I suspect in-camera sharpening has ruined it a bit. I might try again some other time.

So, what about video? Currently, I’m not entirely sure. I now have the resources I need to feel at least reasonably confident of putting out a good quality video, but I’m not quite sure what kind of video to do. That said, a friend of mine might have a collab project for us to work on, so if it comes through, I’ll let you guys know.

On a side note, Valve recently began beta of their Source Filmmaker software, and that’s looking pretty interesting. I might try something with that, if I can.

Better than burgers produced by any other bodily appendage.

Finally, photography/AfterEffects tutorials. Ergh. I had wanted to do some up during December last year, but things got busy, and I had no idea where to start. I figure I should probably start drafting some plans for tutorials soon if I have time, but I fear things will get busy again and it’ll just be swept further down my schedule yet again.

I wish wandering around rail lines on foot were more possible. There’s often so many good shots to be had there.

Anyway, I have a fairly large number of photos I’ve accrued over the time I was free enough to photograph stuff but not free enough to type up blog posts. I’ll put them up as and when I can. I hope you enjoy them.
