Industrial Designer? (Apr 28th, 2007)
I realized today what I want to do when I grow up : Industrial Design. Here's the def :

"Industrial Design is the field of developing physical solutions to meet a particular need. These physical solutions might include products, vehicles, machinery, and even environments."

I had previously called my machinations products of my '3D Design' services ... never knowing the 'Industrial' terminology. I've changed my Friday Photo portfolio to reflect.

Oh yeah ... and I got a new Canon XL1 3CCD video camera.

Willow was dancing at a bigwig gala of sorts on the weekend. I was lucky enough to snag her afterwards for some studio fun.

I've re-organized and created more room in my shop recently and have been experimenting with using it as a studio. It works ok, would be better if I had mounts for my lights on the ceiling. Which wouldn't be hard to do. Just a bazillion other things ahead of it in the queue!

So today I got the scans from my first batch of medium format film. Still haven't seen the developed film or any of the proofs, but I'm moderately happy with the results. No good or bad surprises really, most of it turned out as I imagined it would. The part I'm looking forward to is the proofs of a selected few images that I've requested. Should probably get them next week.

Here's a shot from the batch. Raya waits patiently for me to be done goofing around with the Rollei so we can resume the hike.

First Ten (Apr 6th, 2007)
Next week I'll be sending in my first 10 rolls of medium format film to get developed. They were all precisely exposed with my new Rollei, which has been a real treat to work with from day one.

Film scans coming soon!

Rhy Mac (Apr 1st, 2007)
How many 17 year-olds do you know who can play guitar and didgeridoo at the same time AND has a handful of original songs that can be performed flawlessly?

Well, I know of only one. Rhy McMillan. Check him out!

I had the pleasure of taking photos and digital recordings at a kick-ass all-ages concert on Quadra Island this weekend. So much talent, so few compact flash cards.
