Pixel Pile #7
Freezer Phenomenon #1

It was worth buying a digital camera just to finally be able to document this. Over many months, Susan and I have watched in Neaderthal-like awe when our ice trays occasionally spontaneously generate ice stalagmites like the one pictured. They are usually straight, like the one shown, but not always. Sometimes they have a gentle curve. They point in random directions, and appear in random cube locations in the tray pattern. There appears to be no rhyme or reason to it. Except maybe to give me material for Pixel Pile. I'll take it.

Pixel Pile #6
Office Supplies: A Photo Fetish?

It's hard to determine trends after only six days of doing this, but so far Pixel Pile is looking like some kind of abstract office supply catalog. It could be because I'm still so focused on checking out what the camera can do that I merely use what's handy for subject matter. Susan is an accountant & bookkeeper, so office supplies abound. I can't promise it will get better, as there's a pile of quite colorful paper clips, stick pins, and binder clips awaiting some macro experimentation. But at least the ugly green stapler has been replaced, eh?

Pixel Pile #5
Stanley Stapler [sunglasses not included]

This technique can be done in studio via multiple exposures and filters, but can be a pain in the patootie. With a digital camera and a tripod, you can take one shot with one light on, and another shot with another light on, then combine them in Photoshop. Using this method you can turn a simple stapler into something of ugly complexity.

Pixel Pile #4
"Digital Film: The Oxymoron Illustrated"

Various marketing departments and ad firms would have us believe it's "Digital Film," but we all know it's just very tiny expensive RAM, don't we? And what I would call a "roll" of film , a 64 MB card, goes for $150-$170. Yeah, it's reusable, but it somewhat shatters what has been a long held truth for me: Film Is Cheap. Now, it's more like, Pixels Are Cheap, but the Pixel Holder is Pricey.

Pixel Pile #3
"Big Ass Spider"

I'm not sure exactly what type of spider this is. "Big Ass Spider" is more a descriptive term for this resident of my friend Marti's sub tropical backyard. His/her leg span was about four inches. The background is a curtain on a sliding glass door.

Pixel Pile #2
"20 Minute Product Shot"

I spent about ten minutes throwing together this one light composition on my kitchen table. Normally, I would have to shoot some film, wait an hour or two on the lab, then crank up the scanner to generate pixels. In this case, it was 20 minutes from the time I captured the pixels in the 990 until I exported the finished JPG from Photoshop. I'm likin' it!

Pixel Pile #1
"Self Portrait, Naked, in the bathroom mirror"

And so it begins. It seems appropriate for the first image to be of the pixel procurer itself, in this case, a Nikon 990. It's my first digital camera, after years of relying on a film scanner to acquire my pixels. Pixel Pile will [hopefully] be a daily stab at creative freedom, mixed with goofy efforts at stress relief, occasional desperation for the next day's shot, and other pixel combinations yet to be determined. Be sure to check back each day for signs of visual de-evolution!
