thedude Meets The Man

I’m very lucky to be involved with the design and rendering of the 2012 Burning Man. I can’t show you the rest yet, but soon after this year’s Man burns, I’ll share more. Read More

The Lobby With Lighter Colors

I’ve actually started a blog for my neighbors to gather opinions about possible color schemes for our remodel. Here’s another of several examples. After I rendered this one, I realized that there is a light leak from the right. The small amount of light leaking in from the blue sky accounts for the green tint Read More

Pratt & Whitney Engine

Another Thea Render from a freely downloaded SketchUp model. Wow! Read More

An Exciting New Direction

After ten great years at Affymetrix, thedude is moving on to what will hopefully prove to be greener pastures. Read More

Wolstenholme Fjord, Greenland

My latest scanning project keeps turning up gems. I am so glad I shot this panorama of Wolstenholme Fjord — purportedly the only place on earth where three active glaciers join together. If I could have anticipated today’s technology, I might have made a much more detailed shot than this one – consisting of just Read More

The Golden State Turns Green

It’s Windows wallpaper season in California. And that’s no bull. For those who don’t know, most of California looks more like this most of the year. You may be interested in learning more about the the Window “Bliss” wallpaper. Read More

Scanning — Again

Yes, Kelly found a stack of old negatives, and I’m back at it. These days, I basically have the scanner running whenever I’m at the computer. I load up the negative carrier, preview scan a bunch of images, and final scan the best ones. The process is time-consuming, but my new computer is fast enough Read More

Sorry Don’t Get It Done, Dude

OK, I have never embedded a youtube video, and I may never do it again, but this one’s definitely fun. Read More

Paramount Panorama Published!

Yay! I just received the 2010 Autopano Panobook, and look what I found on page 150! View the original image here and here. Read More

A Christmas Gift for Grandma

The Dude Magazine

“The magazine contained articles on style, music, society, politics, women, and contained seminude pictures of women.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Dude_(magazine) And while you’re at it, check out Dude Studios. Or perhaps you can help me understand what’s going on with this other dude. Read More

My Pipe is Bigger Than Your Pipe

After 10 months of negotiating and waiting, the fiber is finally in!   Read More

More Smart Fun

The shots taken by the professional photographer were finally posted today. I hate to say it, but I’m not sure that he made the most of the terrific photo-op. In addition to some tighter shots, I would certainly have made at least a couple panoramic shots of the event and stitched them together. This would Read More

S.F. Smart Car Rally

I got up extra early today to take part in a record-breaking photo. I had the chance to appear with a large group of Smart Cars two-abreast winding all the way down the “crookedest street in America“. I was not going to miss this! The event turned out to be better than I had hoped Read More

This photos-for-food-and-drinks deal we have with our friends at MoNO is working out very nicely for us. Yum! Read More

New Design!

Well, I finally bit the bullet and changed the site’s look-and-feel. My motivation is only partly driven by aesthetics. The other reason is that WordPress 2.5 is just so dang good. It’s much nicer to look at and easier to use than the latest MovableType release. They seem to have fixed the problems with the Read More

D3 Saves the Night

I was asked at the very last moment to shoot a few pictures of the new restaurant for an upcoming issue of Bon Appétit. With the deadline literally hours away, I went downstairs to see what I could do. The funny thing is that I was apologizing for the photos all the while I was Read More

Photo Advice from thedude

A coworker recently asked for photo advice after seeing the pictures I shot at our company Christmas party. I took the time compose a lengthy response, and figure I might as well share it with my regular readers too! Hi thedude, I was looking at the pictures you took at the party. They are amazing.
