Day 956 of 365 Again. I’m more or less gotten over my feelings on the Watchmen movie, so Hollywood decided it was maybe time to crush my spirits. I hadn’t really been excited about the solo Wolverine movie coming out. He’s not really one of my favorite characters. But the previews show that he’s joined…

Steph and I finally got a chance to use the pool tonight. It was quite nice. Not quite as warm as I like it (I like my pool water to feel warm… almost like the hottub) but it was quite nice anyway, probably just the temperature that most people like it.
Anyway, initially I had intended to do a shot of me floating underwater, but then I got the idea of doing a jumping out of the water shot (as opposed to my cannonballing into it that I did last year). This is what I finally came up with.
Aquaman, eat your heart out!

It’s been hot this week. Godawful hot. In the 90s, and extremly humid. I guess some places it’s like that all the time, but that’s exceptional for Pittsburgh this time of year.
And the worse part, I hadn’t gotten around to cleaning and filling my pool so I couldn’t just jump in to cool off.
I decided tonight was a good time to fix that.
While I was at it, I filmed a tutorial for next week’s podcast on shutter speed. So if you’ve ever wondered how to do a shot like this, where you freeze water in the air, be sure to check out next week’s show. (This week’s show will hopefully be up soon).
