New Office

Behold! My new office. Sure its no corner office like the last one, but its bigger and has a giant window with a view of downtown San Jose and the mountains (including the Lick Observatory). If you're wondering why I have a new office, its because I've moved from the Photoshop team to a research group. One of the downsides of working in a research group in industry is that you can't tell anyone about all the really cool stuff you're working on.

I thought this would be a good time try out some HDR, so this was 'Merged to HDR' from 5 different exposures spread over 5ev.

Technical Specs: Canon 5D, 15mm fisheye, f/13, ISO 100.

Nice! So far the only secret I have learned from your photo is that Adobe uses Cisco IP phones... the 7940 series, if I'm not mistaken. ;)

Close, but not quite. We use the 7960 series (at least thats what mine is). I haven't purposefully tried to hide anything (well other than the source code that up on my monitor).

Very nice! Congratulations! Though Photoshop will suffer from its loss. By the way, that is one huge ass chess board you have in your new office.

Very nice view out your new window!

Thanks. I like the view a lot but I have to keep the blinds closed in the mornings, otherwise it gets too hot and the glare is a little too much. It gets really nice in the afternoon after lunch though.

That really isn't a chess board, but I suppose it could be used as one. Its a calibration target, I found it when I moved in and I think it'll be really useful for a side research project I've got going.
