This afternoon we all ran through our presentations after a provided lunch of pizza and soda in the Fishbowl. I am proud to say that I used the appropriate amount of time as well as projection to get my slides across. Tomorrow the people and advisors we have invited will come and listen to our presentations for about 3 hours and that will be that for the summer. Deep breath and sprint to the finish-line!

Prep Work

Today I spent the day editing my powerpoint presentation again, and with the help of Rolo and Nina I think it is starting to come together nicely. Now I have a graph of actual spectral data, as well as images of the colored bands taken of Tahoe before and after they are put through DIRSIG. Nina and I also finally managed to get a 3d version of the Lake from Blender which I intend to combine with my bridge model. It still amazes me how quickly this internship has come and gone.

This afternoon we went to the George Eastman House to see some of the work they are doing on restoring some of the first photographs ever taken. These images call Daguerreotypes are basically images printed on a flat silver surface using mercury, and look alot like mirrorstill viewed from the right angle. I enjoyed seeing them and it was definintly worth it to be able to get a glimpse of photographic history.


Yesterday's blog slipped my mind again, I was just so busy I forgot to post. Everything has been working up to our final presentations and getting the powerpoint ready has been the main thing on my mind. Nina and Rolo both came down to the lab yesterday and helped Sean and I get some more info for our power points, but I don't know how I am going to fit in everything I need to say in 10 minutes. The 20th marks our last day as interns here at RIT.
