The kpop dance cover video

This is what I shot for tweetychick630 & her friend Regina last weekend. Editing by Regina.

...and my aspiration is to someday yield something more like this for them, done by a group in Vietnam: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YooZ_8BgGQ8

Anyways, back making bias tape =.=

A 6-month late look into last year.

Fullscreen + HD recommended.

Work was a little rough the tail end of the year, but at least I like my co-workers.Part of the reason was our then-upcoming TV ad campaign. A "kerfuffle" earlier in the year lead to us cutting our ads at the time and heavily re-examining how we preset ourself. Here's a sort of parody the ad agency made: http://vimeo.com/45341027 (won't let me embed)
That video is filmed where I work, in case anyone was curious what our office looks like.

I really should post here more. I'm a pretty closed person lately. Especially the past few months; I'm getting too distant. And Facebook is only suitable for pretty superficial stuff.

(no subject)

I'm weird. For my 1 bedroom apartment, I have 9 different types of light blubs and ~30 bulbs total. (excluding christmas lights, sewing machine light, blacklight, etc.) For whatever reason unknown even to me, light bulbs are something that need careful selection. Three of the types are not even in use, but on hand to swap with existing bulbs if I want a different effect.

Water! (2/2)

Seems LJ limits the size of posts, so my water shooting adventures are split in two. First part, featuring rain machine / body paint is a separate post (NSFW). This post is the under water shooting experiment (unlike the other post, this is worksafe)


photos!Collapse )

Water! 1/2

A couple weeks ago, I attended Adam Chilson's "Dusk till Dawn" Rain/Water themed event. I love playing with water in photos, so this was a pretty exciting prospect. I first heard about it last year, but couldn't afford it at the time. After listening to other photographers at local meet-ups rave about how great his workshops are, and that they are practically a bargain, I was rather determined to go this year. Even more so when I found out he plans to make this the last year for the water set.

Photos & Ramblings - NSFW!Collapse )

Other water experiment: Undewater shooting!

At Fanime, I tried out a camera I'm considering. My camera is dying, and I'll be getting a replacement sometime this year. What I thought about itCollapse )

3, 2, 1, Let's Jam!

What if I rented a spaceship (set)... akin to the style of Firefly / Alien. Or more specifically, the set used for Ark?
Would people be interested in a Cosplay in Space shoot? For anything gritty spacey like Cowboy Bebop, Captain Harlock, Outlaw Star, Mass Effect, DOOM, Firefly, etc.
Would people travel (set is near Burbank (SoCal/Valley)) and/or help cover costs of such a shoot?

I went to a con and there were magical flying ponies and robots

I will not be going to any cons this weekend. Though I may visit FD and/or go hiking (anyone want to join?) -> postponed to next week due to rain.
Last weekend however, I went to PyCon (and visited with Yun+Bryce) at the Santa Clara Convention Center - former home of Fanime. It was interesting seeing how the place has changed - it's bigger, but not big enough for current Fanime. It was however plenty large for the 2000-some people at PyCon.

I was at PyCon because this is what I do at work:
(ripped from a website that's now offline)

Specifically, I manipulate snakes to control a pony. Incidentally, this same breed of pony powers Pinterest. And also http://epii.info/ has Django/Python behind it. (Which I kinda want to ramble about, but would anyone be interested in reading that?)

There were talks. Metaclasses. Geographic Information Systems. 3D Printers. There was maybe too much free alcohol. Maybe kinda crashed some wedding reception or something while trying to find a party at a different hotel that involved crossing a river and passing a golf driving range.

...and most importantly, there were robots! (watch at least at 4:10)

... that I really want. But they're $3,000 and you have to agree to contribute at least two projects developed with them back to the community.

PS: related to techie conferences, I'm leaning pretty strongly towards going to SIGGraph this summer

Katsucon, etc.

I'll be going to Katsucon next weekend. No particular cosplay plans except Poker Face Gakupo. (maybe with tokiyoh ?) Goal of the con is to see at the east coast / Canadian people I haven't seen in too long (especially since I missed Otakon). I should be pretty free for shoots if anyone is interested.

Life update... soon-ish? Photo updates... in a week or two?
