Calling on your help!
Yesterday, we had great mentions for 100 Cameras in 1 from Kotaku and Gizmodo. More on that below.
I wondered if YOU had any good connections to sites or media that might like to review the app too. I got the Kotaku hookup from a very nice friend, who introduced me to two parties… I really haven’t done anything much to “market” the app yet. I don’t much like blind-emailing people and saying, “Hey please review my app I know you get 5,000 of these per day, but but but…” hehe. Anyway, I don’t like doing that… you know what I mean. Any good introductions would be appreciated… I have a pile of free review download-codes I can send out… our contact information is below, or just use business @stuckincustoms.com. Thanks!
Thanks to Kotaku & Gizmodo!
I’d like to give a big internet bear-hug to Brian Crecente at Kotaku who did this interview. Don’t worry — it’s a very manly bear-hug — the kind where you vigorously slap one another on the back with aplomb in public. Anyway, he’s super busy and he took a lot of time to put together some very thoughtful questions. Even at that, I predicted he would just format the story like question / answer / question / answer… but he went old-school and actually wrote a story!Kotaku and Gizmodo are related in the Gawker briarpatch, so Gizmodo also picked up the story – thanks to the team over there too. I used to be with Gawker Artists back in the day, and they would randomly show my art when they didn’t have advertising banners. I remember that Gawker contacted me because an angry reader thought I was beating my children because I had an HDR-photo of them in one of the banners. They were gonna call Child Protective Services! (Seriously!)
Under the Louvre
This is a definite no-no land for tripods, so that made me re-double my efforts to make this shot happen under the glass pyramid of the Louvre.
With the sun in my face, there was no way I could make an HDR out of a single RAW, and I knew I needed seven exposures, from +3 to -3 to make it happen. I ran around in circles to save up some bullet-time, and then I quickly unfurled my RRS tripod. It spun and rotated like the Hellraiser cube until I had it perfectly situated. I took my seven shots as quickly as possible before two security cards came over to get me.
I couldn’t Michael-Weston my way out of that one because my French is so bad, so I just slowly folded up my tripod while giving them a knowing grin. I wanted it to be the kind of grin that ate into their souls… but, I think they were just generally annoyed with me and wanted me to hurry the heck up.
