Look at me, blogging this year already! For day 3 of my year in pictures I took a self portrait that sparked folks to ask me how I wrap my Stripe Study, which I feel I have perfected over time for maximum coverage, staying power, and wind-resistance. Plus it solves the asymmetry problem by essentially ignoring it entirely. It’s hard to explain in words, so I made a quick little video! You’ll note of course that I never turn around to show you what it looks like from the back to see the point sticking out—but part of the reason I forgot to do that is I don’t really care what it looks like from the back!
This was fun to make—I finally figured out how to use my remote control and real camera to take a video. I have many outtakes of “is this recording?” but it was actually obvious, it just didn’t make a noise or light up in any way to let me know it was working. I’d love to play with video more with the DSLR this year; let’s see if it happens.
