When I’m not pretending to be a game developer, and not at work, I occasionally go out and take photos. This week I had a chance to take some photos of a friend who (by some rather interesting connections and circumstances) ended up on a bobsled team. I kid you not. So, for two nights this week I was able to take pictures of the bobsleds. The first night I was using my usual setup (Nikon D80 with an 18-70 mm lens), but that proved to be not enough. Things were turning out way too blurry, so for the second night I borrowed a co-worker’s 50 mm f/1.8 lens, and was able to snap some much better photos. Feel free to check them out here.
I just finished reading a post by JTippets of GameDev.net (which can be found here. An interesting read, I thought. (Although, I admit, I first thought he was going to be talking about plumbing, as in game development related stuff going on behind the scenes).
