About the pictures

or, "Why I'm Surprised So Many of These Pictures Look This Good"

Most of these pictures were taken under adverse lighting conditions. The camera I used was non-SLR (translation: the viewfinder doesn't have the same line of sight as the lens), resulting in a couple pictures with one side cut off.

The photos were scanned and cropped with Adobe Photoshop, which in the fine tradition of Adobe software felt compelled to crash its host machine a certain number of times per day. Once saved, they were Fetch-ed to my NYU account and then handed over to FTP for the torturous journey out of NYU-NET to this site.

I originally saved the images as JPEGs because Photoshop claimed to be unable to save them as GIFs; I later found out it was lying and rescanned the JPEG images, but a couple GIFs were lost in transit and so I've left the JPEG versions here for you.

Sometime soon I plan to get my Con reminiscence pages finished so you can find out what the hell was going on. In the meantime, here ya go...
