Photo safari in SF on Saturday

Photojojo is a great photo blog, full of interesting bits (e.g. today’s bit on taking ghostly pictures with your scanner).  As it happens, they’re hosting a photo safari this Saturday in San Francisco:


(1) You bring a camera (it doesn’t matter what kind) and some friends (2) There’s a cool place or event or a tour for you to take pictures (3) We go to a bar and you can put your photos in a slideshow to win prizes from us or sponsors. (4) You are happy and fulfilled.  Cost: Free.


Adobe is sponsoring the event, and the photo whose work the group votes best will win some groovy software.  Sounds like a fun way to spend a Saturday.

    Ghostly photos.
    I’ve used scanners as cameras before simply by placing objects on the glass or kids faces smushed on the glass works well too.
    Works great, especially if they “follow” by rolling their face with the light bar as it scans, then you get an ear to ear portrait.
    The technique demo’d in the video is a neato option as well.
    As always, thanks for looking out for us John.
