Second Chance

Years ago I made an attempt to turn a colour photo taken at Samphire Hoe, near Dover, into a faux infrared image - but not very successfully, I should add. So when I knew I would be passing the location again last month, I made sure I had my IR-converted old G2 with me to give myself a better sh...

Goodbye Nokiagraphy

Before I make the definitive switch to my new iPhone, I thought I'd have a look to see if there were any usable images left on my Nokia E71. "And, were there any usable images on it?" you may ask. Well ... er ... that all depends on your definition of "usable", I suppose. I'll le...

Fisheye Lite

Some more app testing going on here. I'm still on the free ones, although I've now also downloaded a number of paid ones, including of course the famous Hipstamatic app. But let's do another free app first: Fisheye Lite. This is just a set of distortion filters, it has nothing to do with real fis...

I temporarily have two phones - I still use my Nokia E71, for which the contract hasn't run out yet (it will soon, though), and my new phone has already arrived, a brand new iPhone 4s. And of course I've started trying out some apps on it, I couldn't resist. I thought I'd start with some free app...

Pop Art

No Andy Warhol here, I'm afraid, but something completely different. More like Soda Pop Art, really. Oh, and speaking of different, some of the observant members may notice a striking similarity between what I uploaded to the Gallery today and the picture in this blog post. (But there are also disti...

Late Christmas Decorations

In Bruges, they still had the Christmas decorations and lights, last week. I had fun walking around all evening, shooting this and that - decorated and lit houses, church towers, etc. It was a nice evening. Here's a sample of what I saw:

More from Bruges

Looking at chocolatiers' windows is a lot safer in the evenings, when they're closed. And Bruges has quite a few chocolatiers, as I found out last week when I spent an evening there. The old town centre is very nice, with lots of historic buildings, but some of those buildings house attractive sh...

Chocoholics Anonymous

Health Warning: This blog post contains text and images that may have harmful effects on those suffering from chocoholism. Walking through the historic town centre of Brugge last week I was looking at the shop windows, and the many chocolatier's shop windows made me think of David's Christmas cho...

The Tangerine Test

As I wrote recently, I've been given an old analogue Canon EOS Rebel SLR. It came with a cheap standard zoom lens, a 35-80mm. I also told you that I have a new acquaintance, someone who fiddles with lenses. Handy little man. He fixed my 50mm 1.8 Mk I lens, which I was very happy about. But he ...

Happy Reunion

For those who have been following my blog posts (if there are any... :P), it won't be news that my 50mm 1.8 lens was recently found to be completely stuck, not wanting to focus at all, and it seemed like I had to write it off. But then someone in the forum thread on here suggested taking the lens...

iPhone photography

IPhone ordered: check. Accessories ordered: check. List of essential apps made: check. Read up on photography with the iPhone: check. iPhone delivered: [pending]... :( Oh well. Back to the book for now...

50mm Update

The other day I wrote that my 50mm 1.8 Mk I lens had got stuck: both auto focus and manual focus didn't work anymore. Well, there's good news to report! I found someone who is handy with lenses (takes them apart, converts his own lenses for macro use, etc. - quite a handy chap, apparently), and I...

Merry Christmas!

This is just to wish you all a very Merry Christmas! Since we're not having a white Christmas this time, here's what it looked like last year:

Replacements

It's been one of those years in which things had to be replaced. Do you know how that works? One thing after another will die on you, be lost forever, or become so outdated that you'll have to replace it. The car went to my ex, my satnav gave up the ghost, my Olympus pocket digicam fell and brok...
