My life in pictures

September 10th, 2006 Leave a comment Go to comments

I’ve started taking pictures again. After a lot of soul-searching, I ended up picking up a weird little digital camera from Ricoh. Beautiful wide-angle lens, no zoom. Takes crazy-good pictures and allows a tremendous amount of manual control. It’s gotten nothing but shit reviews from the powers-that-be, because it’s expensive and has a lot of noise in the dark. On the other hand, you can leave the shutter open for 3 minutes if you need to. And the noise looks pretty good – they seem to have shaped it somehow, so that it resembles film grain.

Anyway, the gear hound in me just wanted to mention it. I got a flickr account and have started posting my stuff there. If you want to see what talented photographers can do with this little camera, check this out.

Just as a personal update, things are good. Berlin is still wonderful, although I’m really not integrated into the art scene here at all (as if I really was in New York!). I’ve recently stopped being such a slacker (and also because my German is finally passable), and started working on thing-making again. Mostly music! I’ll post some stuff as it becomes more fully-formed…
