Slow Shutter App for iPhone

I'm still experimenting with the Slow Shutter app for iPhone. It's handy to have an app that allows longer exposures, but I'm finding it hard to find the right use for this app, and the right settings to get a decent picture. This is as close as I've come to getting something usable - still not a...

There are several things I find irresistible, photographically speaking, and one of them is a 'good' cloud. When I see an interesting one, I try to find a nice view to go beneath it, and I just have to take a picture. Going through my portfolio, you can find several examples that I found worthy e...

Family History Connection

A few months ago I visited the smallest 'city' in the Netherlands: Bronckhorst, in the province of Gelderland. It's only a few streets with a handful of houses, but it has city rights, and is therefore officially a city. (Ironically, although in houses and population it's the smallest city of the co...

Emotional Value

I think of my dear, departed Ashley every day. She was such a special dog, and such a special friend. Fortunately, there are so many photos of her to help me remember everything we did together. Funny thing is that I took quite a few photos of her that were appreciated by many EPZ members, and...

The trouble with getting a large group of people to all use the same thing, is that there will be so many different personalities and opinions in the group that you will find it impossible to keep everyone happy, and certainly not all the time. Whatever you do, whatever ideas you come up with, there...

Until I get some time to really go through my Olympus photos, I'm spending time that would otherwise be lost on playing around with the photo apps on my iPhone. I always have it with me, after all, so I never have to get bored, I can always get the phone out and play with images in my digital film r...

Comparison Experiment

I decided on a little experiment. To be honest, I did have quite a good idea how it would turn out, but I decided to make it an experiment nevertheless. I posted similarly processed iPhone shots in the Gallery and in a blog post, both with a title that indicated it was taken with a camera phone a...

Out and about with my iPhone

On holiday I went out on an overcast and rainy day. I didn't think I would be very much inclined to take a lot of photos, so I didn't take my camera. But of course, as will always happen with a photography enthusiast, there will come a moment that you regret not taking your camera. And that mome...

Centre Focus

An iPhone shot on an overcast day - in picturesque surroundings, but not with the light or the sky that you would wish for. So, what to do? A play with the image in a few apps - Snapseed, among others, and the Tilt Shift app. And this is the result:

Sometimes it's the simple things that can be the most striking to look at. At an airport I was looking around, wondering if there was anything nice to photograph - perhaps people greeting each other, possibly a glimpse of a good-looking aircraft - anything really. After a while I put my camera a...

Black Rock Cottage

I think I must have photographed Black Rock Cottage in Glencoe on almost every trip to Scotland, except the last one. My photo collection contains quite a few photos of it, it's a recurring theme in the Scotland p´ctures. And that goes for ePhotozine, too. It must be one of the most photographed ...

Great Balls of Fire

From the Royal Armouries. Wouldn't you just hate to have these shot at you? I know I would. I'd object strongly to that, I'm certain of it. Anyway, this image was processed with Infinicam.

Size Matters

Well, to some it does. Of course, I can think of plenty people who don't think size matters, I can think of plenty of situations in which bigger isn't better. But sometimes you just can't get around it - size can impress. And at the Royal Armouries in Portsmouth they certainly do think bigger is ...

Before driving back to the ferry in Harwich, I knew there was going to be time left. So I thought about photo locations to visit along the route. I considered the possibility of ditching the sandwich idea and getting a decent meal en route. And in the end I hoped I would be able to combine the two. ...

Not Aftershave

I rather like my aftershave, but it does come in a rather masculine-looking bottle, nothing elegant. Now take perfumes - since they're for women, the manufacturers go all out to come up with some good-looking bottles, one being even more elegant and graceful tha another. J'Adore is one of them...
