I’ve been an avid photographer for about ten years now. For much of that time, I did photograph models. But about three years ago, I got tired of all the drama it brought to my life and so I took a hiatus from it.
That hiatus was broken on Saturday when I took Candace to the local park for a casual shoot. We used my Fujifilm X-T2 camera and a 50 year old lens, the Minolta MC Rokkor-PG 58mm f1.2. What this lens lacks in clinical sharpness and contrast, it makes up for with gobs of character. This allowed me to get images that really didn’t require much in the way of post processing, which is just how I like it.
I will be speaking Wednesday night at the Triangle DevOps group’s October meeting, hosted by WebAssign. The topic is “Introduction to illumos”. I’m expecting this to be a gentle introduction to the illumos world for a target audience of Linux users. We’re going to talk a little bit about what illumos is (and what it isn’t), some of the benefits of using illumos that set it apart from Linux, some of the popular distributions (OpenIndiana, OmniTI’s OmniOS, Joyent’s SmartOS), and a few of the gotchas that I’ve run into with my own path of discovery on this platform.
