• Some Self-Promotion

    I put up a little photoblog on my personal domain. The goal is to just share a favorite photo I took. I am going to try and share daily, so be sure to grab the RSS feed. I’ll try to limit pictures of my kids, but I can’t help it. One thing to note: there’s […]

  • Dark Sky Updated

    Dark Sky released a huge update today. I don’t need to do a review (been on the beta, thankfully) because I’ll tell you with 100% confidence that this is the only weather app you need. One of my favorite little things: it tells you the hours left of daylight, not just the sunset time. Love […]

  • How to Get Rid of Advertising

    Jamie Phelps: In the end, advertisers are currently willing to pay a lot more than consumers for control of the relationship with service providers and distributors of content. In order to get rid of advertising, individual consumers need to be prepared to pay enough money to take control of the relationship that is currently controlled […]

  • ‘How Silicon Valley’s most celebrated CEOs conspired to drive down 100,000 tech engineers’ wages’

    Mark Ames: The secret wage-theft agreements between Apple, Google, Intel, Adobe, Intuit, and Pixar (now owned by Disney) are described in court papers obtained by PandoDaily as “an overarching conspiracy” in violation of the Sherman Antitrust Act and the Clayton Antitrust Act, and at times it reads like something lifted straight out of the robber […]

  • Lightroom Workflow

    When RAW image editing and workflow software started to hit the mainstream I checked out the three biggest name offerings: Photoshop Lightroom, Capture One, and Aperture. At the time I couldn’t stand Lightroom, so for three versions I stuck with Aperture. It was dog slow, and couldn’t do some of the really neat stuff Lightroom […]

  • Bigger Sensors

    David Pogue has written about cameras in a way that I find a tad inaccurate. He says: It’s very simple: Big sensor = better photos. A big sensor can absorb more light. It makes possible sharp photos with better color in low light. Less digital “noise” (random speckles). And with the right settings, a big […]

    Interesting discovery from Terence Eden (which Google now says is not a flaw). Basically if you add a appointment with an email address in the appointment title — the person with that email address may, or may not get an invite. Even if you specifically are trying to not invite them. Good lord — the […]

    John Carey on retro themed cameras: It’s only natural for manufacturers to look back to the roots of the craft as a means to pull in photographers who crave more than what their mobile phone can offer them in regards to in camera creative control. That said, when you imagine a camera in your mind […]

    David duChemin on his Leica M(240): All of that means I am more present in the moment and that is more important to a photographer than anything. Whatever camera does that for you is the right camera. Little else matters. Good read if you are interested in the switch from dSLRs to mirrorless systems.

  • ‘Ad Blockers: A Solution or a Problem?’

    Mauricio Freitas, publisher of the New Zealand Geekzone website: ((I looked at the site, not surprised people block ads there.)) The use of ad blocking software breaks that implicit contract. What’s more, he continues, the vast majority of visitors who use ad blockers aren’t interested in making even a small payment in exchange for an […]

    This is a really interesting comparison of the same RAW image being converted by different RAW image processors.
