NBC Interview – Behind the Scenes

NBC Video and Behind-the-Scenes

Besides the video below, there is an extended article with more behind-the-scenes stuff you might enjoy. Jim Swift from KXAN here in Austin did a nice story on the whole thing. And, thankfully, he cut out the parts of the video where we REALLY look like idiots.

100 Cameras in 1 (iTunes link).

Is an Android Version coming?

If you scroll to the bottom of the KXAN Article the question came up and we addressed it there. I know you are excited about it! So am I, obviously! ๐Ÿ™‚

Sunday Approaches…

The big video release is just two days away… It took me a small eternity to finish, but you’ll zip through the whole thing in a matter of minutes.

Daily Photo – Girl in Hat

One morning I woke up early to go visit the Summer Palace in Beijing. Since it was the week of the national holiday, I was not the only guy that woke up early. Around the outskirts of the palace, there were thousands of celebrants in all sorts of garb. And plenty of cute kids in fanciful headwear. I saw this little girl, so I got down to her level and took a quick shot with the 50 prime.

I hope this one is sharp enough for you… I know on Flickr sometimes I get a few photo-nerds that complain, “errr…you’re a little soft in the lower right quadrant.”.

  • Great shot Trey – your portrait work from China is great!

    I’m with you on the picky photo nerds – i get them regularly on my flickr complaining about this being too sharp or that being too noisy. I often think that over-analysing photos at 100% scale ruins the enjoyment of an image. I never do that – that would be like taking a magnifying glass to a photo you took back in the good old days before fancy DSLR’s and saying it sucked because it was too noisy, blurry, grainy etc etc even though it looked fine in it’s normal format. If a photo looks good at a size like we’re seeing here then there’s no need to over analyse things in my opinion – i like the story not the science.

    I also visited HDR spotting properly for the first time yesterday and I never knew that it was affiliated with ‘Stuck In Customs’ – some of the stuff on there is amazing, I had been thinking my recent stuff had been good but there’s some really talented folks out there which is great. I’ll try and sign up when i’ve got something good enough to go on there…..

  • Great shot Trey. Nice and sharp for a change (just kidding)!

  • Cindy Williams

    Looking forward to the video.

  • Uh, Trey. Errrโ€ฆyouโ€™re a little soft in the lower right quadrant.

    Just kidding of course! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

    When people make those kind of comments, at least you know they’re paying attention to your stuff. I mostly get the comments “great photo” or “greatest thing since sliced bread” even on my average stuff. So they ain’t paying attention… Yet.

  • Matt – Sure it’s nice when people look at my work but it’s the over-analysis that bugs me. If someone criticises one of my pictures for something horribly obvious then that’s fine i can handle that but it’s when it goes under the microscope and people start actually hunting for small, almost invisible things to criticise then that’s when i start to get annoyed and think “mmmmaybe you’re going a bit too far!”.

  • Michele

    Nice change of name, Susan, but you ain’t fooling anyone!

  • Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

    Andy – yes – well… Actually I think it is only a certain personality type that does that sort of over-analysis. I experience it a LOT – in person too, as you might imagine. But the thing is… that I think that they are actually trying to be helpful and offer advice… but, to us, I think it sounds kind of insulting or rude. I think we can all take criticism without a prob — but there are certain personality types out there that are just BAD at dispensing criticism… even though I’m sure they think they are being as helpful as the next guy!

    Hey Trey,
    As an Android user, I am looking forward to the android version!!!!!

    Love your work!

  • Simon Morris

    Wonderful shot… and excellent post-processing too! I also like the DOF, putting all emphasis on the main subject… nice work ๐Ÿ™‚
    Andy – you’re spot on about the talented folk on HDR Spotting… I’m signed up, but as yet still waiting for a ‘worthy’ image to submit ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • I have to say I love HDR Spotting! I have been blessed with 3 pictures currently on the favorites page. It is a really elegant and beautiful site with lots of very talented submitters (is that a word?). It makes me work even harder, thanks Trey for providing my two favorite sites!
