Stuff

orchid flower starting to bloom


Flickr has been flaky this week and I've lost the ability to see when all my friends have posted new photos. I miss my daily photo stream!

Daniel Johnston Dance Party last weekend at the Black Cat for Pancake Mountain, tonight we've got a photo shoot for the next DVD cover.

And my weekend is packed with Artomatic meetings.

I did some macro photos yesterday as I'm working on growing orchids. A new crop of flowers all bursting at once. When I let the camera choose the exposure & d.o.f. it prefers to go with a very low depth of field. When I'm shooting macro sometimes I want to up this so more than a tiny little bit of the shot is in focus. The problem with this is with an increased depth-of-field suddenly ~everything~ is in focus... including all the dust on the lens and the sensor. Suddenly I'm spotting negatives again.

Never realized how dirty all my gear was. Ick.
