June 9th, 2005 Fire! Fire!

Last Thursday, after class, I finally received my new camera (Minolta DiMAGE G400). 4 Megapixel, 3x optical zoom, tiny sonofabitch. Was playing with it a little in my truck as I was on my way to the Math department’s picnic, played with it more before the after-picnic-party (and no I don’t have any shots from this).

Friday, my roommate invited me to go to a BBQ with a bunch of his friends in Corvallis. I went and had a great time. There seemed to be a shortage of BEEF burgers, but the ribs followed shortly after. Food was damn good, company was great. Passed the soccer ball around outside for a while. Then after the sun set, while most of us were watching BASEketball, Milo (edit: thx Trev0r) began twirling his firestick. This was quite amazing, and I do have some shots of this… (click to enlarge)
I had no idea how this exposure shot mode got turned on, but it kicks ass once you’re aware of it! I now know how to turn it on and off, but am still figuring out how to control it more. It’ll probably take me all summer before I’ve totally got the camera 100% figured out, but it only took me the one night to get the basics.

I’m looking into the possibility of starting a photoblog of some sort. I’m not sure if I want to host it, or if I want to use an established site service. It may take a few weeks for me to get something going, but you heard it here first I guess.

Yay, new toy!!
