Among all the different, fascinating things to see at the Academy of Sciences, I usually find the people to be the most interesting element of every visit. So when I go to a NightLife event like this one, my camera is typically pointed at human interaction, either with one another or with the exhibits, as opposed to the actual exhibits themselves.
Below is a wide view of the inside of Rainforests of the World, an exhibit housed in a huge, climate-regulated glass dome. The image is a motion panorama, stitched automatically by my Fuji X100. It worked well enough, though if you look closely you’ll see a few misplaced limbs, a chopped off head, and a girl with a curiously long nose. Gruesome…
Below the rainforest you’ll find the “humans-holding-their-cellphones-skyward” exhibit. Fascinating!
This particular NightLife’s theme was photography. I kinda sorta might possibly be interested in that. 😉
The folks from the recently opened Lomography store in San Francisco were on hand to demo a variety of funky cameras, including the Lomo LC-A with a Polaroid back pictured above. Way. Cool. I also had a chance to play with the new Lytro Light Field camera (that weird rectangular thing, also pictured above).
I think Bridget had the coolest camera of all, however. Whenever I get my scanner fixed, I’ll have to post shots from her Polaroid!
