Wide in Brussels

Over the week-end I was in Brussels for the FOSDEM conference, as part of the Fedora team, the perfect opportunity to take my wide lens with me and take a lot of travel photos.

So of course there were building, cathedrals, monuments and so:

And there were cool stores, anime, comic books and so forth:

And plenty of good Belgian beer, at Delirium and not only:

And there was specific food:

Of course the chocolate was not missing, but this time was no chocolate:

Many more photos are dumped in a quickly made gallery.

Sexy Fedora no-shirt

After in the first session I persuaded Andreea to do a good thing for the community and pose with a Fedora T-shirt (first dry and then wet) – and she rightfully was proclaimed a Geek Goddess for that, here is the continuation, where she takes her shirt off (warning: potentially NSFW!) and replaces it with some temporary Fedora tattoos:

Sexy, right? If before that she was a goddess, now what? what title can top that? (or those 😀 – no, we don’t want those topped, we like them as they are)

And, of course, we had a lot of fun in the process, everyone was happy, not only the viewer, Linux is not a boring server thing, it can be playful too:

I hope you liked this photo session (see the full gallery) just as much I did, now time for thanks: thanks to Andreea for being a beautiful and cooperative model, thanks to Alex for helping with the shooting and thanks to Tatica for being supportive and helping with the editing, it was the teamwork of 4 people from 3 cities and 2 continents.


Sexy Fedora T-shirt

In less of a couple of hours today is the release for Fedora 13 and specially for this event I am putting out a few sexy pics with a beautiful girl wearing the classic I <3 fedora T-shirt (stay tuned for the second part next week, when the shirt will come of!). Right from the bat, it should be noted Aneska is a professional model and I, the photographer, have the full rights to use the pictures.

And all is not about looks, she is quite a geek: doing photography and photo editing playing good computer games (Baldur’s Gate, if you can believe!) and also having heard what Linux is… it was easy for me to explain what Fedora is, by telling it is something similar with Ubuntu. Her boyfriend (yes, she has a boyfriend, I can hear now millions of geek hearts being broken and suddenly silenced), also photographer, knew Fedora by name (well… he knew it as “Fedora Core”, bad for me for not having a Live image with me) and have tried once Ubuntu on his desktop… he was unhappy with the software (troubles of installing proprietary nVidia drivers) but amazed by the helpful community (I owe now a beer to some unknown guy from the Romanian Ubuntu community).

We touched just briefly in the talk the topic about women and technology, their lack of involvement… I feel this is something worth revisiting at a later date, as she can provide useful insight on it – I expect a point of view radically different to the extremist hate groups driven by the USian politically correctness, prudity and hypocrisy.

Anyway, she will read the comments, being genuinely interested in the people feedback about this photoshoot, so please leave feedback in the comments, it will be read.

I also have to make today and exception from my rule, I believe in Freedom and use the CC-BY-SA license as much as I can, but in this case the rule is the photos can’t be used in a way that will damage the model image/reputation, so let’s consider them also under a “Non Derivatives” (ND) clause. However, she wants to see them used, so if you make a wallpaper from them, feel free to post a screenshot for her.

…and don’t forget to visit and pass forward the URL of the entire gallery. And wait for the second part, is hot.

Update: The second part is up.


FLOSSCamp photos

While still on hold from substantial photo posting due to the lack of a suitable gallery to power the content, the recent FLOSSCamp at Curmătura Ștezii proved to be a great opportunity for a large number of good or great shots, so I have to work around ways and post some.

Group photo at FUDCon

I am not entirely happy with how this group photo came up, but taking into consideration the constraints (no decent tripod available, bad light, crowded place), it may not be that bad after all…

Fedora 11

a bit of utilitarian photography: we "launched" Fedora 11 in Romania: beer, geeky talks and even geek girls.

Booth babe me

So it’s life, you usually shoot both babes, but sometime the wheel is turning around and you are the "booth babe". Good thing I wasn’t caught in embarrassing posture with pantyshots or worse :p

eLiberatica 2009: selling Fedora

Being at the conference, I used the opportunity and tries some thematic portraits:

Fedora 10 Release Party

As announced on my main blog, we had yesterday a Fedora release party in Bucharest. Of course the photos I took the are nothing close to art, but it is fun (ALL the editing of my photos is made under Linux).

More beer

I dug up this photo from the older Brno FUDCon photo session, since I am not sure we will keep a Fedora Release Party next week in Bucharest.

No room left for a debate, that is not American Budweiser crap, is fine Czech Budweiser beer. Yummmmy….

Beer! Real Budweiser!
