Mirrorshades update

I tested my Mirrorshades platform at St Salvator’s chapel in St Andrews for the first time today!

This test represents a less contrived scenario in which one might use a mobile cross reality platform like Mirrorshades, compared to when I was using it while walking around the Computer Science building, because while the real & virtual environments in this test share largely the same layout, they have substantial visual differences which are intriguing to contrast & compare.

The virtual component here shows the chapel as it stood in 1450-1460, since when there have been substantial changes – not least the removal of the original stone roof & its replacement with a wooden roof & the change in the room division.

Until next time!

Available light portraits w/ RB67

Despite knowing next-to-nothing about portraiture, my girlfriend wanted me to shoot some of her & I wasn’t about to turn down the offer. Very pleased with how they came out & the crazy skin detail the huge 6x7cm negs captured (click for full size & view 1:1)!
