Experimentation in 3D photography (wiggle)

Posted by Eric on Saturday, November 03rd, 2012 in Art / Other

Cell phone cameras always seem to fail to capture any real depth of a scene when photographing it, resulting in a flat and soulless picture of whatever the hell was important enough to get a picture, but not by the use of any real camera.

I recently hiked a small river trail in West Virginia and came across a tree whose roots were protruding from the 3 foot cliff raised from the path of the trail. The roots went horizontally into the cliff, leaving a bit amount of shelter for any creature small enough to appreciate it. I thought, "Hey, lemme get a picture of this kick-ass tree! But wait, I know taking a picture with my cell phone isn’t really gonna grab the awesomeness in front of me. I’m gonna upload it to my computer and stare at it and think ‘YTF did I take this picture?’ "

Then it hit me. Everything is going 3D now a days. The only thing is, it’s not really 3D; it’s just two images displayed simultaneously for each of our eyes to give the illusion of 3D. I can do that! What if I took two pictures of this tree from different angles, and animated them really quickly like those weird drawings I’ve seen out on the innernette!

LEGO Sopwith Camel time lapse build

Posted by Eric on Saturday, September 01st, 2012 in Other / Videos

I picked up the new Sopwith Camel model from LEGO about two weeks ago and spent a Friday night hammering away at it. I knew it wouldn’t be a long build so I recorded myself putting it together thinking I could make this video and enjoy the experience later as well as share it with others. Enjoy!

...and the chaos continues!

Happy New Year you silly reader, you! My gift to everyone this year is my new website design (YAY!!!) - gander at it’s 16-Bit’d awesomeness as every plasma cell of fire burns itself into the retinas of your eyes while you watch a glorious 16-Bit D.C. sunset!!!1

Unfortunately, the blog’s received no love until now :( . I’ve been gone for a long time, and I’ve been quite busy. Work, play, the holidays, expansions of consciousness, Mario Kart Wii, Forza 3; they’ve all taken up quite a good portion of the last three months of the latest 365-day cycle that we all willingly, but always questionably, partake in. So in celebration I’ve prepared a small list of treats for you - a late stocking-stuffer if you will - full of cool things I’ve been finding on the internets!
