Photography in Paradise

peeking from behind the sensor

The program went well and there were a lot of interested people there. Siggraph its self is a very interesting place to meet like minded individuals in your field. One group of interest was the fellows from fxphd.com. Jeff Heusser, John Montgomery, Mike Seymour. fxphd was created by the founders of fxguide.com, the ultimate resource for high-end compositing and post production on the web. They provide high quality internet training targeting visual effects professionals. Although I was there only for a short time I was surprised by the interest in my topic on Sensor Noise Testing and Camera Calibration.

I will be publishing a White Paper on this topic in the near future and will post it on this blog. But if it is too big I will post it on its own web site.
