Sunset in Long Beach

 

Sunset in Long Beach, originally uploaded by inexplicablyNic.

On my way home from school I looked up and saw one of the most amazing skies ever, so I rushed home and grabbed my camera. There are a couple panoramas put together with the nifty “Autostitch” program like this one. Click through to check out the rest.

Not sure what’s gonna happen with this blog, as I’ve mostly abandoned it and nobody seems to be looking at it anyway. I may be rearranging some stuff in the future. Comments are greatly appreciated.

Anachronism

Anachronism - Apple Insomnia Film Festival 2007

This 3-minute short was written, filmed, scored, and edited in one 24 hour period for Apple’s Insomnia Film Festival, from 6:00am on Saturday till 6:00am on Sunday.

Robin Darjeeling dreams that the world around him is moving at an alarming pace; he awakes to discover it may not be a dream at all.  Naturally, he deduces that his alarm clock is the culprit, though he fails to realise just how influential it is. Filmed on location in Loleta and Fortuna California.

Loleta at the Beach

I finally got out of the house for a while and headed to the beach, found some beautiful colours and textures in unexpected places.

AP Photo Concentration – City Lights

For my Advanced Placement Photo exam in High School (2007)

1. What is the central idea of your concentration?

For my concentration I explored the often unseen beauty of lights produced from a man-made source.  I chose neon signs for their vibrant colors, interesting shapes, and surreal atmosphere.  The project grew from simple macro photography to in camera image manipulation.

2. How does the work in your concentration demonstrate the exploration of your idea?

I started my concentration focusing merely on photographing neon signs from uncommon angles and macro distances.  By cropping in close on small sections of neon signs I was able to achieve an unrecognizable and surreal composition of shapes and colors..  I soon began experimenting with moving, rotating, and/or zooming the camera during the exposure; in a sense painting with the flickering neon lights.  This technique provides movement and emotion to otherwise plain photos of signs.
