I am a software developer. I am particularly fond of the areas:

  • artificial intelligence, computer vision & machine learning
  • high end graphics & image processing
  • games

As this profile is now posted across multiple sites:

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, also known as a Mormon.
I am also a mathematician.
I quite like interesting games and enjoy playing them with those of my many wonderful children who are old enough. We will often edit what we might find to be sleazy in a game without altering the game play, which quite widens the range of games we can play while staying within what we consider to be gospel standards.

comment Why do breathtaking views turn into “boring” photos, and how can I do better?
I admit however, that I didn't help him with his current photos. But my answer is intended to represent a fish-for-a-day vs learning-to-fish approach. If he learns to see visual components that are used to build up a great image, he will find his task no longer requires third party intervention. He will see it for himself in the frame of his camera. Oh, and very interesting answer on my Physics soundboard question Olin Lathrop. Nicely thought out.

Well nothing I said was meant to be touchy-feely. If the author had asked about writing musical compositions and I had suggested he look into learning about chordal progressions and he listen for them in music he likes, particularly watching for the common tonic, subdominant, dominant progression, he would find it much easier to write his own music.

As a note: Composition is about the large scale design of the image whether by lines, darks and lights, colors, contrasting textures, whatever... And its meaning can vary. The composition of Raphael focuses on leading ones eye around the image. Where as the composition of the Japanese prints some of the Impressionists incorporated are almost more like rhythm on a grand scale, i.e. a means of breaking up the space of the image that resonates with itself.

comment How do straight edges end up curved in photos?
Didn't know that. By fisheye like distortion do you mean that a single parabolic lens has barrel distortion?

Thank you very much. I will look into those. Don't know what to do about an official question answer.
