Eric Cheng featured in DiverChannel

:: Tags:

I’ve been featured on the cover and in a 10-page interview in issue 11 (September, 2007) of a Chinese underwater photography magazine called DiverChannel. I can’t read it, but presumably, it’s an interview that roughly equates to the copy I sent them in English. There’s also a strange quote in English that they pulled off of this journal. It mentions Jason Bradley and Tammy Loh, and is totally out of context! Maybe it makes sense with the surrounding Chinese text…

You can download the magazine for free, but you have to register on their website to do so. The download is also a bit slow — at least, it was for me.

Solomon Islands trip journal

:: Tags: ,


a cardinalfish with a mouth full of eggs

It’s obvious by now, but I’m back from the Solomon Islands. Unfortunately, I will only be here for a few days, and am off to Tanzania and Kenya early Sunday morning.

I’ve put up two slideshows of Solomon Islands imagery:

  1. personal trip journal (unfinished) with slideshow
  2. group slideshow on Wetpixel.com

If you’re friends with Don Kehoe, I highly recommend watching the group slideshow until the very end. You won’t be sorry. :)

Mandy and Elliot’s Wedding

:: Tags:


Elliot and a booted Amanda dance

A few weekends ago, I flew out to Milwaukee to participate in Mandy and Elliot’s wedding (insert 9 years of dating joke here). I’m getting used to regular reunions with the gang from Durand House (quite a few of weddings in the past few years!); luckily, there are still a few of us who are unmarried, so future events will surely occur.

The wedding was great fun, and I was honored to be part of the wedding party. I miss being a daily participant in Mandy and Elliot’s lives — but events like this are great, visceral reminders that we are friends for life.

A few photos follow, but if you have the proper credentials, you can also see and purchase prints of all of the images. (read more »)

Fan mail!

:: Tags:

This is my favorite e-mail from the last 2.5 weeks.

From: Michael Much <muchphoto@earthlink.net>
Date: Wed, 19 Sep 2007 10:00:15
To: Eric Cheng
Subject: FROM ECHENG.COM – Galleries

So when are you going to start doing some interesting infrared photography? We don’t care to see you or your friends.

My reply:

From: Eric Cheng
Date: September 25, 2007 12:22:55 AM PDT
To: “Michael Much” <muchphoto@earthlink.net>
Subject: Re: FROM ECHENG.COM – Galleries

There’s this cool button on every web browser window. I think it’s called “close” or something.

I get an e-mail like this (from a stranger!) every few months, and over the years, they have stopped bothering me.

Michael Much probably sent that message after going to my infrared page and finding a bunch of pictures of my friends. There is only one Michael Much I can easily find in Google, but you can bet that this page will show up in a few days, too.

Why does Aperture keep showing deleted keywords?

:: Tags: , ,

Instead of going to bed at a decent hour, I felt compelled to write about an Aperture keyword issue I discovered a solution to recently. If you’re not an Aperture user, you probably don’t need to continue reading… (read more »)

Contesting a $2,724.14 data charge from AT&T / Cingular

:: Tags:

I have a Blackberry Pearl, and am under a plan which Cingular used to call “Blackberry International Unlimited”, which advertised unlimited data usage internationally for $69.99/month. A bundled voice plan gave me a $5 discount on the plan, making it $64.99/month for data. There was no fine print stating anything about the type of data used, but I assumed that if I ever saw a roaming indicator, I would probably get charged for the data usage. — warning, this is long! — (read more »)

ONE-SECOND PANORAMA demonstrated

:: Tags: ,

I came up with the ONE-SECOND PANO while were all sitting on Ninagiak Island after three hours of photographing puffins in the wild. We were waiting for the skiff to come pick us up, and I snapped the ONE-SECOND PANO with Jimmy’s fire-breathing dragon. You’ll notice that I have categorized this entry as being both in “Photo” and “Humor” — I suppose it’s a photo-nerd humor, but that’s what I am, so here it is. (read more »)
