Been very busy, but not much for the blog. Mostly, I've been working on my current campaign (Cyrran Reaches), gearing up for Trogland 7, and playing a little with my camera. I've also been trying to get some creative ideas for some recording projects going, but it's been a little hit or miss.
I think my D&D 3.5 game is going quite well. Last session was a little slow, but there's been some great plot, some fun action, and some aspects I haven't addressed much in games before. I've enjoyed developing the setting area as well, and there are a lot of possibilities for it, I think.
This year's meetup is coming up soon - we're just about a month away. Today was the last day for pre-registration. I built trogland.penguinsushi.com for this purpose, and I'm fairly proud of it. Getting the meetup funded up-front this year has allowed us to do some new things with less stress. Win-win all around. I'll also be running a sequel to last year's Little Fears game - which was awesome to the point that I'm not sure I can possibly live up to it. Still, it should be fun. If I can get that together soon, I may also try to run something else on friday night.
I've also, as usual, been playing with my camera. I actually had a chance to play with the 5D mk III one of my coworkers uses at work... ...and now I kind of want one. It's pretty nice. I would settle for a 6D though, and since that one is about 1.5k cheaper, it's a bit more likely than the former. I'm also still wanting to get a nice telephoto lens.
Unfortunately, I also discovered my beloved 50mm prime has a bit of a backfocusing issue. I'm not sure if it's always done this and increased experience now has me noticing, or whether it has developed the behvior recently. On the good side, it is extremely mild - to the point that I can't quite tell if it always does it or not, and it's really only noticeable up close and at a wide aperture. Also, if I do manage to get a newer camera, a lot of the nice digital bodies have the ability to compensate for this sort of thing.
