3:44 PM Some small but interesting tidbits I learned about HDR photography through an article in Digital PhotoPro magazine:

  • A typical camera captures about 8 EV of dynamic range; the human eye captures 14 EV
  • Images in print capture about 6 EV
  • Definiton of EV 0: 1-sec exposure at f/1

3:24 PM The Boulder Public Library had a book sale today, where I found some great books for $2 each:

On Civil Disobedience and Non-Violence by Leo Tolstoy: A book I didn’t even know Tolstoy had ever written, and one even Amazon doesn’t have any information on.  I’m sure I’ll find some quotable passages in it.

The Deptford Trilogy by Robertson Davies: A friend in an English class I took in 2003 recommended The Fifth Business to me (which is a part of this trilogy).  Her recommendation was so emphatic that I still remember it, five years later.

Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer: I saw Sean Penn’s movie and loved it.  The book should be even better.

There were a lot of other books there that, had I a big house with a big library, I would have scooped right up, like several different versions of Tolstoy’s War and Peace and Dostoyevsky’s The Karamazov Brothers; several Franz Kafka volumes; Sartre’s Nausea; V.S. Naipaul and Checkov, among others.
