Photography purists love pointing out how much better “my gear” is from “your gear.” I find it peculiar when the argument manifests itself along the lines of: my gear = film. your gear = that totally uncreative electronic gadget that just happens to make…

2014 OKC Festival of the Arts - "What it's like on the waiting list"

I first visited this show in 2007 — the year before I started attending shows. It’s the biggest show in the state, and one of the top 50 in the country. In summary: I’d love to do this show! (especially as a temporary replacement for Mayfest and Paseo…

I had my dominant first string shooter: “Monument Valley Sunset”, and the new players on the team: a half-dozen canvas prints from Sorrento, Italy last year. But I didn’t have “Union”, “Tired”, or the bulk of my fog collection: “Fog 6″, “Twins”, “Into”,…

The US Supreme Court is currently forming an opinion about the internet "broadcasting" company Aereo.

If you're not familiar with Aereo, here's how it works. Hop on their website, tell them where you live, and they will set up an antenna in your name, and connect the antenna to an internet-enabled DVR so you can watch & record the (free) television signal (from "your" antenna) from anywhere in the country.

For more information: https://aereo.com/

Sounds perfectly legal, right?

Well, pretty much every broadcaster under the sun is suing them (ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox, to name a few), and the case has finally made its way to the Supreme Court.

Here's the part that bugs me -- the logic. How hard is this decision? Consider the following scenarios:

(1) Connect an antenna to your television, so you can watch the video being received by the antenna.

(2) Install a buffering system (say, a DVR) between the antenna and the television, so you can record the live signal from the antenna and watch it on your television whenever you like.

(3) Replace the television with a computer, using the proper hardware and software to interpret the video signal.

(4) Use an authentication system on the DVR so the user of the computer is the only user who can access the media on the DVR.

(5) Move the computer to your neighbor's house (with permission, of course).

(6) Install a much longer cable and reconnect the computer to the DVR.

(7) Install a second antenna and another DVR at the first house, install a second computer at the house across the street — connected by another lengthy cable. Ensure that each computer (at the neighbor's house, and house across the street) has its own username & password to only one DVR in the first house.

(8) Replace the lengthy cables with an internet connection. Connect the computers and the DVRs to the internet, and ensure that the single-user authentication system still functions -- so each computer can access each DVR as if they were still connected by their respective direct cables.

(9) Replace the array of DVRs with a new "Super DVR" which has support for multiple (separate) accounts and connects over the internet rather than using a direct cable. With their own authentication on this new internet-enabled DVR, each user can only access their own media as if they were connected by those lengthy cables.

(10) Now, move those computers across the country, and reconnect them to the big DVR using a web interface.

The very first scenario is perfectly legal. If you agree with the broadcasters that the final scenario is illegal, at which of those steps was the final scenario rendered illegal? With this hypothetical analogy, all we did was replace each piece in the connection with another (more modern) piece, one-by-one: The television is now a computer, the cable is the internet, each individual DVR has been reduced to a single account on a shared DVR, and the only item that remains for each user is that they still have their own antenna. The logistical difference is that the customer is no longer in the same house as the antenna.

If the final scenario is illegal, why isn't the first one?

It's been nearly a year since my first photo shoot with +Cabins in Broken Bow , but they recently (finally!) updated their website. It contains over 400 photos I shot for them:
http://www.cabinsinbrokenbow.com/
(They acquired "The Cliffhouse" after my last photo shoot. I may have to help them with that one.. :)

Project Details
2700 exposures, 452 complete photos.
Three photo shoots: February, May, and September 2013.

Development - This is what took so damned long.
Since the schedule required me to take most of the photos during broad daylight, I decided to shoot multiple exposures and use Lightroom's 32-bit TIFF support to create HDR images. This has all the advantages of HDR (fantastic dynamic range), and none of the disadvantages (no halos, no gritty textures, no clown-puke colors).

Except for the photos taken during golden hour, most images were 5-7 exposures.

This project helped me find what appears to be a memory leak in Photoshop.

My workflow would go like this:
- Select bracketed photos in Lightroom (after syncing the crop, lens correction, and white balance)
- Open them in Photoshop HDR
- Click 'save' in the HDR window, then save the resulting TIFF file.
- Develop in Lightroom.
- Repeat.

My computer uses the 64bit version of Windows 7 on an Intel i7 with16GB RAM. Every time I would invoke Photoshop's HDR feature, Photoshop would consume 10GB of RAM (I could watch it stair-step it's way up for each exposure it was blending in.) If I didn't close Photoshop between creating each HDR image (in other words, if I tried to create two HDR files with the same session of Photoshop), Windows itself would issue an "Out of Memory" error and Photoshop would stop creating the file.

Sure, each exposure is a 36 megapixel 38-45MB file, but still.. Why doesn't Photoshop do a better job of cleaning up after itself?

Anyway, it's all done (except for the new cabin :)

Easter Egg / Photo Credit
Even though there's photo credit in the footer of the site, look close at some of the televisions -- I not only added photos to some of the screens, but I added my name as the brand:

Due to circumstances, I will arrive at the Edmond Art Festival this weekend with the most limited inventory I have ever had, and the (temporary) inability to create more. Up until now, I didn’t consider my work to be limited, but now it’s “Limited Edition…

Here's a fun use for +LogMeIn before your free version expires (in the next seven days): use it to remotely install +TeamViewer on your other PCs.

Finally! Flashlight functionality on my iPhone that doesn't display ads, ask for my location, or require use of the microphone!

(If you have been using a third-party flashlight app, you know what I'm talking about...)
