Brighton 2009 meets Lightroom 3

Just managed to do some photos from 2009 in Lightroom 3. Have to say its better than Lightroom 2 and i prefer it to Aperture.

Photo Apps for the iPad

Going to look into essential apps for the iPad to use when out and about with camera and camera connection kit.


Played around at the weekend with timelapse photography for a while. for a test i set up my tripod and pointed the camera out of the window. i connected the camera via a usb cable to my macbook pro and used a special software called “Sofotbildapp” to take one photo every 5 seconds.  after a while and about 360 photos later, i loaded them into iStopmotion to create a video.  Need to play around a bit more with the correct exposure settings and so, but the first test was ok’ish.

Canvas printing with the HP 8850

Found a Hahnemuehle Canvas Gallery Wrap starter kit on amazon. was quiet cheap, so i ordered one right away. It arrived 2 days later.

It had 2 A3 Canvas, some stretcher bars, and some metal clamps in it. Well the A3 canvas went into the printer and a A3 print was quickly printed. after waiting 5 minutes to dry, i turned it around, assembled the stretcher bars, pressed them onto the back of the canvas and folded them inside and secure all 4 corner with the metal clamps. around 10minutes work and it looks quietIMG_0265 good.
