If you have *any* Cocoa questions, come to the Cocoa labs! I’ll be working the labs this week, so find me (or any of the other great apple engineers) and ask questions! Edit: if you go to: you can see a picture of me from last year — I have the Leopard print hair:

A few good pictures From the UCSC Arboretum, taken yesterday. An HDR shot of a bee; the image was generated from a single RAW exposure, mainly to increase some details that you couldn’t see with the original photograph. An HDR generated from three exposures, and my wide angle lens: A regular image, touched up in Aperture slightly, taken with the 70-200mm f/2.8 lens: An HDR from three exposures using the 70-200mm lens. The non-HDR looked pretty good, but the right side was slightly over exposed from the sun, and the background was pure black. The HDR combination fills out those areas, and prevents... [read more]
