2015 Photo Project – April In Review

I’m not as happy with my photos in April as I have been in the past, and it’s because I waited until the very last minute to take them. My wife and I were in the process of moving, and I realized around 9pm on the last day of April that hadn’t yet taken any photos! So, I grabbed my early used extension tube to give my camera a poor-man’s macro lens and shot some macro photos of keys and my iPhone.

They actually came out pretty good, but I wish I had used my month better.  Now we are moved, and I found a group of local photographers here that go out and shoot pretty regularly.  I hope to get plugged in with them soon.

User Psychology Presentation

I work as a UI designer/developer for AppRiver, and every week someone presents what we call a Ten Minute Topic (TMT) to the entire development department.  A few weeks ago I presented a very non-technical presentation about user psychology, mostly dealing with how we as website developers & designers can make websites work better for the people who use it. We can do this by better understanding how the human mind works, and knowing what the person using the website is expecting to happen.

We record these presentations internally so we can watch them later in case anyone needs a refresher or if anyone missed a week.  A fellow coworker, Shane Drye, has written a blog post summarizing the main points of my presentation, and you can even watch the video of my presentation!
