A collection of random photos taken at the house in Terre Haute.
I submitted “Lonely Winter Night” for the Silence II challenge at DPChallenge. I came in 110 out of 177 with a score of 4.96 / 10. So far this is my best result at DPChallenge. I think that I may have over done the softening on the shot, but I still think it was a cool effect.

The first real snowfall of the year for Terre Haute. I looked out around 9:30 and it was too nice out not to take pictures.
Since deciding that I cannot use MATLAB because of the additional addons necessary to use webcams, I have been deciding between C# and Python as the next language to try. I’ve settled on Python for the time being, using VideoCapture to connect to the webcams and Numpy to process the data. It turns out that Python + VideoCapture + Numpy is actually rather similar in functionality and syntax to MATLAB with its image processing library.
I submitted “Natural 20” for the Lucky challenge at DPChallenge. I came in 66 out of 85 with a score of 4.41 / 10. In 20⁄20 hindsight, I probably should have submitted the other version of that shot. Oh well.

I submitted “Can You See?” for the Transparency III challenge at DPChallenge. I came in 116 out of 152 with a score of 4.64 / 10. I hope to do better in the next competition.

Shots of dice in black and white. There’s really not much more to say than that.
The original plan to use Make3D for the visual depth determination has mostly fallen through, partially because it has several dependencies that I cannot get to build correctly and partially because it is written in a combination of C and MATLAB. I have nothing against either of these languages; however, I do not have the addons necessary for MATLAB to connect to a webcam.
As such, I’ve decided to switch from a monocular vision algorithm to a more traditional stereo vision algorithm.
Some pictures from before and the rest from during the Verkamp family Christmas celebration. I really like how each of these turned out.
A set of pictures from the Olinger family Christmas celebration this year. This is the first set of pictures from my new camera!
