Suit Selection and iPhone iDolatry

Mr. Doug Nash, one of my best buddies, is getting married. It is my great honor to have been asked to be one of his groomsmen and as part of my groomsmanly duties, this past weekend I helped in the process of finding him some swanky duds for the big day. This was a particular challenge when you consider that he doesn’t own a single suit, let along worn one in the past decade or so. All in all though, I believe it was a success. Despite my pushing for top hats and tails, we found his something that looks great, suits his personality and their style as a couple and reflects their desire to not have a regular transitional wedding (no tuxes at this affair).

This also gave me a great excuse to take some more video with my iPhone 4s. The thing takes great quality video and I recently picked up an Owle Bubo, which really makes it fun to shoot video with the iPhone. Also just figured out how to disable the auto-focus on the iphone camera app, which will come in very handy when I totally nerd out and buy an adaptor to hook up my slr lenses to the Owle. (In case anyone is wondering how to disable the auto-focus, in the camera app, tap the screen and hold your finger down for a second or two. You will see the focus box blink. Lift your finger and then the words “AE/AF Lock” will appear at the bottom of the screen. This disables both auto focus and the auto exposure features. To reenable them, just tap the screen again.)

So here is the video I shot. It’s not the most amazing thing in the world, but it was fun and the quality is definitely a huge step up from the Sanyo Xacti I was using before.
