    Seeing Me & Where I've Been

    Taken on a very brief walk in the snow this evening. Couldn't resist breaking the snow between the trees :-)

    I think it's time to iron the creases out of my curtains.
    (Why does that sound dirty?)

    @allana - Absolutely love that motion self portrait you did. There's something really eerie/amazing about a picture that reacts to the viewer - genuinely startling.

    Would love to hear about the process behind it - maybe over in the photography thread?

    @all: Whitechapel looking amazing, even in this nadir of a month.

    @256, sure. Or we can hijack this thread, 'cause I'm lazy. What kind of process info were you looking for? The photography, the coding, my unbridled anger at static media?



    Okay one more and then I'm cutting myself off for the next week at least.

    Feeling a bit sick, so rather than a photo, here's this



    (It's a bit quiet, so you'll probably need to turn your sound up a bit to hear properly)

    You know Anchorbeard, with the sound turned up, I think I actually heard that you were naked...

    As his girlfriend I can confirm that the slight English accent is indeed his "Naked Accent".

    It is also, apparently, my codeine accent.

    @allana - everything! well, mainly your shooting/lighting setup, but I'm also starting to get really interested in that weird area between still photography and video. So any rants on that subject will be read with interest.

    As an aside, I have resolved to SPIT myself at least once this year. Which would be a radical move.

    So some things happened.

    Thing #1: Allana posted that couch picture. I was like "oh, cool. click."

    Thing #1 Addendum: I did not actually say "click".

    Thing #2: That picture led me to Guest Directed Self, which is awesome. I desire to be a part of it, despite having neither a tumblr nor respectable camera stuff.

    Thing #3: While working on something for that, I 85% accidentally take my FAVORITE SELF-PORTRAIT EVER.



    The look on my face is me thinking "holy crap, my towel is like exactly Obi-Wan Kenobi brown."

    Thanks, Allana!

    Holy crap, it is!

    Yeah, the GDSP has been good and inspirational. It's nice to be reminded that my complete lack of imagination is the only thing standing between me and everything. PS: Do you have a tumblr?



    @256, I totally ranted in this space a bit but then forgot to post it and then my computer logged me out and I lost everything.
    The setup is pretty simple. My entry-level DSLR (Nikon D40) is mostly only good with natural light, so I just scooted myself as close to the window as my tripod would allow. I did exaggerate the blinking for the camera (the shutter isn't fast enough, on auto-focus, to capture more than a frame a second) but didn't slow down the inhale/exhale enough as I should've. The reason I got frustrated with making it into a GIF was directly from trying to time each frame's duration to the way I wanted it to show (quick eye movements but a long, drawn-out exhalation).
    The thing about the slider as I have it now is that it's just a big cheat; behind that "window" is a really long filmstrip with each frame loading as the page does (they're only 20kb apiece, so it's okay, but longer animations will become a problem. I probably won't be able to use any of this implementation if I ever get a self-contained embeddable object up and running, but it's okay for a first draft. jQuery: you win some, you lose some.

    There was more, but it actually wasn't that good of a rant. More questions? Do you have any experience with the "weird area"?
