Today’s reader question comes from my friend Jeffrey L Wilson who is the editor of 2D-x.com and that currently works at Laptop Magazine. He’s asking a question that lots of other tech journalists actually wonder about. You see, we all have our different niches, but when it comes down to more technical questions we all have our own specialized skills. Hit the jump; you’ve most likely been wondering the same thing.
As a tech blogger for years that’d had primarily online experience, I’ve developed quite the taste fora number of photo blogs in my Google News reader. I’m just going to get straight into this: here’s a list (in no particular order) of some of my favorite photo blogs and websites.
Hey everyone, just letting you all know that the Phoblographer is getting a minor facelift tonight. The new look will accommodate to enable faster load times on mobile devices, slower internet connections, and the Apple Tablet. All this is being done while still delivering the superb image quality that we strive for here at the Phoblographer.
I’d also like to remind you all that we are now available at ThePhoblographer.com and to please update your RSS feeds as well.
Tim O’Brien of Blind Photographers weighed in on the Apple iPad the other day and made a good argument for it being of great use to the visually impaired photographer. What he essentially says in the posting is how he finds it difficult to use a camera’s LCD screen sometimes to preview his photos. He says the Apple iPad would be a great solution to this as one would be able to get immediate feedback from his/her photography and be able to share it with others. He mentions an obstacle though, and this is an obstacle that a lot of photographers saw with the release of the iPad and that is that there are no ports on the side of the device. However as Tim points out though according to the Apple iPad Spec Page there is a USB kit for camera connection solving this issue.
I’ve ranted about Craigslist before and undervaluing photography. However, this latest posting is ubsurd. It was flagged for removal already, but it’s insane that things like these would pop up in the Gig’s section. The entire email trail after the jump.
That is all. A slight site revamp is coming this weekend as well.
You know that camera that’s going around the interwebs by Olympus? After studying the image over at PhotoRumors.com, I realized that I photographed something very similar two Photo Plus’s ago. Hit the jump for an analysis.
There are plenty of ways to achieve a Long Exposure effect using light and it can also help you capture motion such as the motion of waves in the photo above. You just have to be creative and inventive. In the picture at the beginning of this article I was actually using my blackberry since it emits enough light to be seen. I have also seen people use lighters which creates a very interesting effect so long the user doesn’t burn themselves in the process.
Hey everyone, just letting you all know that since the site is starting to grow and because I have a new writer (Vincent Pastore) I may be changing the looks up a bit to accommodate to bylines. It may possibly also include me getting rid of the header up top.
The new site will work even faster on your phones as well. I’m open to insights though. I’m currently using the Pressrow Theme of Wordpress.
