WeeklyBeats7 — Cold Night
Cover for my latest submission to WeeklyBeats 2014. Wanted to go for an atmospheric sound again, something more ambient. Maybe this worked. Maybe not, but it came out as a complete unit. Also tried sticking to a small ‘band’. In this case used instruments from SampleTank: Blue Phaser electric piano, Xpander Phat synth pad, Cosmic […]
Thought I’d make a treatment of our ‘UNDERDOG’, Bogart. The Underdog concept came from a post by our CaliCan Rescue honcho, Rene. He was in a restaurant in California, on a trip to pick up a new pack of rescues, and after explaining to the waiter why he was there, the waiter replied; ‘Thank you […]
Still not using your iPhone for ‘serious’ photography?
Earlier this year I managed to catch the CreativeLive iPhoneography Workshop with Jack Hollingsworth — well worth my time. I learned a lot and saw how others use the iPhone as a creative photography tool. Today I found this cool video by Jack Hollingsworth talking about how his photography life was changed by the iPhone. […]
Paper pocket organizer inclined toward photographers
Thought I’d take a moment and post a pocket paper organizer (I know, me, and paper? How low tech!) I’ve been working with. Basically, something to keep me on track, and write on when I quickly need to jot a note or something. Has the 2012 calendar which, if I remember, I’ll update to 2013. To use, […]
50 year old infographic shows NASA’s first manned forray into space
NASA’s Image of the Day Gallery provided this cool infographic showing Alan Shepard’s brief flight into space — America’s first. It appeared magically on my desktop courtesy of John’s Background Switcher — a cool windows desktop wallpaper application that manages and displays many image sources.
A Photo Project, An Update, and a Contest?
Earlier today the folks behind one of my favourite iOS digital darkroom apps (FX Photo Studio) announced a great new collaborative photography app and project, in the form of a contest: As a gesture of appreciation to its loyal fans, MacPhun is also developing the first ever jointly collaborated, free standalone wallpaper app that will […]
I have a new blog! And a contest!
Over the last little while you may have noticed I’ve become a bit iPad centric. To be specific, I’ve been exploring using the iPad as a portable, digital darkroom. Yes, the iPad doesn’t have a camera (for now, maybe in version 2?), but that shouldn’t stop us from using it to manipulate images imported into […]
Woot! New Canon Rebel T3 cameras
Last year around this time, Canon introduced the Rebel T2i (also known as the EOS 550D). An awesomely speced-out camera, as all the Rebel’s are, aimed squarely at the consumer Digital SLR and home video market — yes, the Rebel T2i was a true hybrid. Well, today Canon reprised that tune with the announcement of […]
