VR Vlog 001

First vlog about VR with the team.

Our team is exploring the VR space, and I wanted to document it with a vlog. I’m not sure if I can create video content every day, but I’m going to try to share our experience, ideas, and challenges.

Right now, I’m going to shoot it with my iPhone 7 plus. If you guys like it, I’ll use my DSLR and up the production value.

So for starters, Ellie is super cute. She’s such a sweet cat—she’ll come up to me an say hello every day.

Now lets talk about the photo. There’s nothing special about the picture itself except that it was shot with the iPhone 7 Plus with no color correction or retouching. This is just an average photo, shot with average lighting.

I’m kind of amazed by the level of quality by these new smart phones. I’ll do photo shootout later this week. I’m really curious to see how it performs compared to my full frame DSLR.

By the way, the video shot from the iPhone 7 Plus is pretty amazing too. I’m hoping to experiment with this a little more too.

Too Cute: Fennec Fox Learns to Sit

A Fennec Fox pup.

I stumbled on a super cute video of a Fennec Fox being trained how to sit. I didn’t even know that people could have these things as pets.

The fennec fox or fennec (Vulpes zerda) is a small nocturnal fox found in the Sahara of North Africa. Its most distinctive feature is its unusually large ears, which also serve to dissipate heat. The fennec is the smallest species of canid. Its coat, ears, and kidney functions have adapted to high-temperature, low-water, desert environments. In addition, its hearing is sensitive enough to hear prey moving underground. It mainly eats insects, small mammals, and birds. The fennec has a life span of up to 14 years in captivity. –Wikipedia

Milky Way Time Lapse (Fail)

Unfortunately, the last two night skies have been filled with overcast. I’m actually surprised I was able to snag a photo of Andromeda.

By the way, if you haven’t seen it already, there’s a pretty cool video that shows the Andromeda galaxy in an amazing amount of detail. The fact that it’s over 2.5 million light years away blows my mind. I’m really hoping I get get a better picture of it in the future.
