Grown Folks Furniture - W2K
Eames galore via
I just finished this desk project I’ve been working on for the past month. San Francisco based furniture maker Jared Rusten let me use his shop and helped me with the construction in trade for some photography work I did for him.
One of the goals was to minimize as many cables as possible in my workspace. The keyboard, mouse and Wacom tablet are all wireless and I selected a board with a knothole to route the iMacs power cable cleanly through the center.
The table top is solid 1 1/2 walnut and it’s beveled on the edge to make it appear thinner and match the iMacs sloping design. The base is a vintage Eames Aluminum Group piece.
Super stoked on the finished project and a new clutter free desk.

I’ve been experimenting lately with stitching interior photos shot at 50mm. Shooting at that focal length limits the distortion common to wide angle lenses and then stitching multiple ones allows you to mimic the look of a medium format camera( without spending $50K) This is a 32 bit HDR file composited from 15 images in various exposures and shot on a Really Right Stuff Nodal Point bracket. The bit depth and detail you can achieve from this is insane. The final file was 8357 pixels by 7679.
Obviously this technique won’t work on subjects that are moving and I’m still fine tuning it and trying to make it appear as real as possible but for interior and architectural photography it just can’t be beat.
