Relearning Adobe Premiere Pro

I’ve recently subscribed to the entire Adobe Creative Suite and have been brushing up on my video editing skills with Premiere Pro (which I used to teach many years ago). I’ve already started doing some freelance work by editing some videos for my friend Kevin Lamping‘s “WebdriverIO Web App Testing” course (coming soon to a computer near you). It feels great to be doing some multimedia work again! I forgot how much I enjoy putting all of this together.

Fun with Geometry

I’ve been having fun with geometry tonight. I’ve learned how to draw five different “platonic solids” from the Flower of Life (the circle pattern in the background). I made this set in Photoshop, but the originals were done by hand using a compass and ruler. If I had to do it over again, I’d opt for Adobe Illustrator.

Five Platonic solids: hexahedron, tetrahedron, octahedron, icosahedron, and dodecahedron

Milky Way in Marfa, Texas

When you live in a big, bright city like Dallas you don’t get to appreciate the Milky Way… because you simply can’t see it. But when you’re out in the middle of nowhere, somewhere between Marfa and Alpine, Texas, you get to take pictures like this one! Definitely a magnificent site to behold!
