Bay Area [Oct. 1st, 2006|02:47 am]

Today:

Chloe's for breakfast w/ Whitaker and Erin. (in Noe Valley)
{insert some LJ drama}
Then to Mt. View Ampitheater for "Download Festival". Fell into VIP passes via long story. Free beer. Thanks, Andrew! Whitaker and Erin also there. And Dan.
Back to SF to feed Major and bring him inside.
Then to Oakland (airportish) for Lisa's rollerderby bout. Took lots of pictures. Lots of 6aers were there, and Frank and Tiffany.
Then to Oakland (Jack London Square, wtf?) for after party ... most ghetto-fabulous bar ever. But more ghetto. Good stuff. Junior drank a lot. :-)
Back to SF.

Tired.

Derby pictures later. Couple great ones, including perfect one of Lisa mid-fall, falling right at us (we were sitting on the floor). Okay, I just uploaded that one at least, and I guess it's not perfect... ISO too high. But at smaller sizes, can kinda get rid of it:

It took lots of staring at that domain name before I figured out what words it's supposed to say. It's hard not to read it as “Bay A Reader By Girls”.

:)

It is somewhat reassuring to know that there actually IS "LJ drama!" Heretofore I had been under the impression that LJ was run by people from another planet who were not really human because they never seemed to get upset, frustrated or confused about anything! (Not realistic in corporate and high-tech America.) I even suspected that the staff were capable of 'leaping tall buildings with a single bound!" :)

I think if the ISO were to be set at 1600 it would of had some motion blur.

What white balance did you end up using? Its doesnt have a bluish or yellowish tint, so it must of been correct.

Even when I fixed the white balance (fixed as in "not AWB"), it still kept jumping around. I don't get it. I was getting frustrated towards the end and was going to shoot RAW to deal with it later, but didn't have enough space.

So most the time was either flourescent or auto.

Yeah, those lights are really wierd.

They are incandescant like a regular lightbulb, but they put off super hot white light. Not really something thats presetable on the camera.

Best way is with a neutral white card, and a light meter that can tell you the temperature of the light. Plug that into your camera and you're golden.

Or just shoot raw. :)

Today is Pasta Pomodoro, our regular weekend breakfast place. We figure we cheated on it yesterday with Chloe's, so we'll go out for breakfast twice this weekend.

yum

I had Chloe's for breakfast today. We actually got there right after 8AM, when they open. And there was almost nobody in the restaurant - only one other occupied table. Werid, very weird, since they're always backed up. Good thing I know when it's easy to get in and nobody else does - oops.
