While it's been pretty quiet over here, my daily photo project has been progressing rather nicely. Using film cameras means that I take photos in lumps, so I'm countering that by using a digital point-and-shoot and posting one photo from it every day since it came out of the box. I upload my favourites from each day to a gallery, and the project continues until it reaches 5000 photos. I'm currently at 833 after 81 days.

Most days I take only a few photos, maybe five or ten. Today was more like fifty.

In addition to playing with my waterproof camera in a shallow fountain, I also brought out my Sony PCM-D50 audio recorder. I've mixed four different tracks together to create a 45 second sound clip with software that I'd never used before, which was far less frustrating than trying to create a slideshow with iMovie, then Final Cut Express, and finally iPhoto. The video results are unsubtle, but bearable enough for an afternoon's work.

(There is a time delay on the 5kp site, so today's photo won't appear until June 24.)

No comments:

I have broken the links to hundreds and hundreds of photos, which will take a long time to repair. The workaround is to replace "photo.matthewpiers" in the link URL with "matthewpiers.smugmug". Awkward, but only temporary.

This is happening because I have revamped matthewpiers dot com. More of what I write and photograph will be going there, so check it out as well.
