Microcosms

New sets of my photos are online- just put the first 20 on 500px! They're viewable here: https://500px.com/noahpicard/galleries/microcosms, and once my upload limit resets I'll be putting the next batch up. Here's a few of my favorites:






I've titled the group Microcosms because that is what I've been aiming for in my photography- capturing tiny pieces of our world, themselves little cosmos. Sometimes that means highlighting and capturing the texture of things; getting into the crannies and seeing tunnels, valleys, ridges. Other times it is an attempt to recreate objects as essential items of a smaller life: a water puddle becomes a bath, pool, spa, an acorn a hut, a railing a railway. In this objective it continues my earlier grouping "Within Wood"; I have a deep appreciation for wood.

In an effort to explore this association, I'm building a color selection system to ask internet users how they feel on a given day, as a color. You can check out the current version here.

To progress, you can click on a color to see similar colors in the wheel. Once you're happy with your color selection, hover over it to get the rgb color, then send it to me or p…

Drone Control for Unnamed Game

Put some morning hours into improving motion control for our virtual (big thanks to +Parke Bowman for the sprite!) in the tower defense- granting some unique/odd angles to explore with the camera:
