Yesterday they began the teardown of The Center for Media Studies (formerly Heather Hall) on the campus of Fort Hays State University. Since the mid-80s, Heather Hall served as the campus television and radio station, and hundreds of graduates entered those doors and emerged as news and media professionals.
I enjoy building things with LEGO, and love all the sets the put out. Today I sat down with the Ecto-1 set (#21108) that was suggested by a LEGO building and made its way into production. This means I also had a chance to pull out the camera to take some shots.
My wife bought me a MakerBot Replicator 2 for Father’s Day (I get to play with it early because the box it came in said MakerBot on the outside). Tonight, while I run through a print or two, I thought I’d grab the camera and see what I could come up with.
It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these, but it has also been quite a while since I’ve been able to get out and actually do something besides sit behind a desk, a slave to the Robot Overlords of the world.
A month ago, I picked up a set of Kenko Auto Extension Tubes that allow photographers to turn an ordinary lens into a macro – and in some cases a super-macro – lens.
I love timelapse photography, and I love pictures of the night sky. Earlier in 2011, I had attempted some night time work that didn’t turn out very well. I’ve been doing some reading, video watching, and consulting, and finally went out on a very cold night to see if I could do a better job than the last time.
I love taking panorama shots, and I have a great App on the iPhone that allows the user to take and make a quick panoramic shot.
