Because of the ludicrous amounts of comment spam I get, I think my filter has become so restrictive that commenting has become almost impossible. I apologize and will look into a solution a soon as i can. I the mean time, feel free to comment via email via jason at walljm.com.
I hate noise. Well, most of the time. I hate color noise all the time. I’ve held off buying some of the professional noise filtering programs for a long time because I didn’t believe they were really worth it. But on a whim I downloaded the free trial version of Neat Image and gave it a try on some of the photos I shot for the Pendragon Movie that, due to low lighting conditions, were shot at 3200ISO. Very noisy. I was a little shocked at the results.
The resulting image looks like it was shot at 200-400ISO. Very clean and quite usable. Click on the images to view larger us resized versions to get the full effect.
The Dead by James Joyce. the whole story feels to me, soft and grey. its comforting somehow, but not in a happy way, like a whisper, and old eyes smiling, old eyes that speak of joy, and also of pain.
“His soul swooned slowly as he heard the snow falling faintly through the universe and faintly falling, like the descent of their last end, upon all the living and the dead.” – James Joyce in “The Dead”
After much waiting, and an even longer time saving, I finally received my new Canon 5D. Allow yourself a moment to get over the envy, I know I would.
I’m still at work, and don’t have my lenses with me, so I’ll need to wait till I get home to test it out. Suffice it to say, I shall be posting prints from it soon. ;)
Anita Lillie’s Sleep Tracker
Woman uses accelerometers to track how she moves during a nights sleep.
there is exuberance in conversation
her *smile*, her quick response
an intimate connection of words,
expressions made plain by type
and nimble fingers.
electrodes speed pithy words
old and newly coined
through air and over land,
rendering space meaningless
