I work for Red Hat on the Fedora Linux distribution. Before that, I was a sysadmin in the Academic Computing group at Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. Photography is a hobby, and my main goal is simply documentation of my family life.

For some reason, most of my favorite answers here have something to with the geometry of photography, whether in composition, in exposure parameters, or angle of view. And hopefully in a way that makes it clear and interesting even to the non-geek:

But it's no all geometry!

If you're a Pentax user, you may be interested in my definitive guide to Pentax hot shoe flashes and compatible 3rd-party options.

comment What process can I use to print my picture so edges are embossed and can be felt?
You can go much larger; depends on the printer. Some printers also support multiple colors at once, or you can change filament. That would add to your work and complexity, of course, and unless you put in a lot of work would not be a wide range of colors. You could, however, make a base like this, and then overlay that with a normal photographic print on paper -- or you could simply use the plastic print as a mold to shape lines onto the paper.

Well, we get people showing up here with all sorts of ridiculous claims, and you'd be surprised at how often they turn out to be serious. Unfortunately, without much context, it's hard to read tone in plain text.
