iPhone 6 Plus Camera first Impressions

iPhone 6 Plus Camera first Impressions

I recently upgraded my phone to an iPhone 6 plus (from an iPhone 5) and I was curious to see what the camera was like, especially with Apple's recent publicity on the matter. I was out in the city today for a little while so I decided to try it out. I didn't spend too much time with it, so I don't really have any major opinions as to the quality yet, but instead here are some images that I shot, and some observations on using it.

Iridient Developer 3 Released

Iridient Developer 3 Released

Iridient digital has released a major upgrade to it’s Raw Processing software Iridient Developer. I’ve covered this software numerous times on the blog, in particular in relation to it’s ability to decode Fuji X-Trans files. Version 3 is a significant upgrade over version 2 and has a lot of new features in it. The update has addressed most of the (few) criticisms that I’ve had of the software in the past, and it now has a lot of functionality for processing images.

Creating a "Stacked" style gallery in Squarespace that can use the Lightbox

Creating a "Stacked" style gallery in Squarespace that can use the Lightbox

This is a quick tip for any fellow Squarespace users out there. If you're a photo blogger and you use Squarespace you may have come across the following problem: You want to add a series of images to your blog post and you want them all to appear in a row, one after the other. The simplest way to do this is to add a gallery block to your post, and use the stacked mode for the gallery. This will add any images in the gallery one after the other in a "stacked" fashion, but for some reason known only to the folks at Squarespace, this method doesn't allow you to use the Lightbox functionality (so that when you click on an image it will apear large in an overlay)

Trying out a Friend’s Nikon D800

Trying out a Friend’s Nikon D800

Recently I had an opportunity to try out a friends Nikon D800 and I’ve been wanting to write about the experience ever since. I realise that the D800 is a few years old now and has been superseded by the D810, but as the camera is selling for quite a reasonable rate second hand now, I thought some people may still be interested. This isn’t going to be a review as such, but rather a personal take on what it was like to use it.

The First Buds of Spring (With Film Candy 2)

It seems like it has been an exceptionally long winter this year. Even though we haven’t had any really harsh weather, the long dark evenings and pervasive damp and cold conditions have seemed to be going on for so long. There are finally signs of spring coming through though.

Some Blog and Website Reshuffling

Some Blog and Website Reshuffling

Over the past few years I've accumulated quite a few different blogs and websites. As with many people in the same situation, I've had the best of intentions with these, promising myself to create my own little blogging empire, but usually they've been neglected after a while, as I've realised that my workflow was to great. Anyway, I've a few that had been going well, but I've neglected lately, and I've begun consolidating them.
