What a Great Night

You guys ever won­der how they get those incred­i­ble night shots, more appro­pri­ate­ly in terms of photography—long expo­sure shots (at night)? I found a pho­tog­ra­ph­er that did so in Flickr. He goes by notraces, and he is just dope with night pho­tog­ra­phy.

You may view his night pho­tog­ra­phy set here. For those inter­est­ed in find­ing out his work­flow for these kinds of shots, you can read up over here. Enjoy, and have fun view­ing.

PS. Flickr also added an explor­er page which high­lights most of the awe­some pho­tos that are host­ed on their ser­vice. In addi­tion to that, they also have anoth­er fea­ture called inter­est­ing­ness. More info can be read over here.

Flickr at SF Apple Store

Looks like the great Flickr staff will be bless­ing the SF Apple Store on the 2nd of August, 6–7:30pm. I’ll pro­l­ly check it out with James. Should be inter­est­ing and fun. Hope to get some Flickr schwag—maybe they have some secret stash =)

More info here.

Mean­while, I tried RSVPing for the event using Upcoming.org. I signed up with them but haven’t got­ten any con­fir­ma­tion email that usu­al­ly takes just sec­onds to receive. After some test­ing, it looks like it might be my mail serv­er. Oh well, I hope it does­n’t fill up.

They seem to be the talk of the town late­ly. If I can recall, they just moved a cou­ple of weeks ago. Good times hope­ful­ly. Maybe they’ll even announce a “New-In-Town Fickr Par­ty” of some sort… just maybe.

Any­ways, the Apple Store is across the street (lit­er­al­ly). Just gonna cruise on by after work. I can’t wait to meet these cool peeps.
