[61/365] A Slice Of Pi … Early

[61/365] A Slice Of Pi ... Early

I’d like to preface this by saying I’m not really an uber geek. I just like Pi. It’s the coolest number in the world.

π (or pi) is a mathematical constant whose value is the ratio of any circle’s circumference to its diameter. Interestingly enough, it’s also the same value as the ratio of a circle’s area to the square of its radius. I know I should have waited to post this on Pi-Day (March 14th), but this way I get assignment52 done & dusted this week.

Taken for Assignment52 Week 9 :- Numbers.

While setting up lighting for an unrelated project today, I snapped this photo as a test shot. I wasn’t planning on doing anything with it.

But I pulled it into Photoshop… just to play. Design. Create. Have Fun. Things that many graphic designers & photographers forget to do among their many projects and deadlines. I wasn’t planning on sharing the finished piece… mostly because I didn’t even know I was working on something to finish.

I’ve been planning my self portraits so much lately. Thinking ahead, setting up, coming up with ideas and executing them with a plan in mind and a goal image in my head. Sometimes it’s good to instead attack a photo with absolutely no idea where it’s going. That’s what I did here.

Then, I liked the outcome. So, here it is. 🙂

In this design I used elements I’ve had collecting dust in dark corners of my computer for years. The illustration overlay comes from a vintage postcard that I found somewhere, and saved because it made me happy to look at it. I really wish I could remember where I got it so I could give the source a shout-out! (If anyone recognizes it, please let me know so I can!)

Anyway, that was a very long way to say a simple thing: This one was just for fun.

Work Hard, Play Hard, Rest Well

Work Hard, Play Hard, Rest Well

Day 67 – March 8, 2010

Still nursing flu like symptoms today so did not have the energy to really go out and shoot.

Its been a while since I’ve played Guitar Hero, or any of my other games. In fact at work today a conversation about Pokemon had me remembering my Gameboy gathering up dust in storage as well.

Having said that I wanted to use both illustrations (being sick and computer games) to point out the importance of finding a balance in life, between work, play and rest. One of the most valuable lessons I have learned is not to lean heavily towards one or the other.

Its never good to be too comfortable on the couch as life is precious and we should make the most of every single moment. Its also never worth it to pour out all your energy on work especially when it takes a toll on your health.

I wonder when I will ever learn.

PHOTO NOTES:
2 Textures Used, Overlay, 48% and 21% respectively from here and here.
Lighting using natural room light & 1 tungsten lamp 6 feet to the left of the guitar
