A rare occurence

borked iPhone file

A rare incidence of a corrupt Iphone file, I may just attempt to open it with another application and see how I go?

Hipstamtic, & the iPhone

I am a proud and new owner of the latest iPhone 4, it s my first iPhone ever, to say I am pleased, would be an understatement.

One of my peers, has had an iPhone since their release 2 years ago, he too is an advocate of, the best camera to own is one you have on you at all times, and are prepared to use all the time.

Hipstamitic, is one of his favourite iPhone applications, so, of course I had to give it a go too. I have at the moment, 6 lenses and 8 film types, as well as, the flashes, that come with the application, perhaps just the iPhone 4.

With such a dizzying array of options I needed to be clear in my own mind what film/lens and film/lens/flash combinations I felt the most comfortable with. How to work this out? Why run a test of course.

Not a very scientific one, but a test nonetheless, in real world conditions, i.e. my sunroom at home in the gorgeous winter light.

So I photographed the view out of the bck window with all possible lens/film combinations. Once I'd settled on a film/lens combination, I then tested the flashes with that combination.

The winner for me is:-

  • Lens; Lucifer VI
  • Film: Pistil
  • Flash: Standard

Is it art? The jury is still out on that one, one thing is sure though, it is a whole lot of fun.

Geek-Out!

Google Chrome, my 2nd browser of choice now has extensions, allowing me to trick out the browser to do so much more. Will it replace Safari? I doubt it? Safari's colour management, ie Apple's colorsync are a given, and as I spend so much time looking at Photographs online, I need to feel comfortable regarding the colour.

Exhibitions, I'd wish I could have seen

Eastman House is not only re-running the New Topographics: Photographs of a Man-altered Landscape, from 1975; but this exhibition, entitled, Nature as Artifice: New Dutch Landscape in Photography and Video Art

The description “Dutch landscape” may evoke an idyllic vision reminiscent of Dutch landscape paintings, but today the Netherlands is known for its planned, manipulated landscape. In the last two decades a number of Dutch photographers and filmmakers have taken contemporary Dutch landscape and nature as their point of departure. George Eastman House presents a major survey of this new work, titled Nature as Artifice: New Dutch Landscape in Photography and Video Art, on view June 13 through Aug. 16. It is a companion show to the Eastman House summer exhibition New Topographics, originally mounted in 1975, illustrating the profound influence of that exhibition on the generations that have followed.

The tyranny of distance lingers.

100,000,000 geotagged photos

Geo-tagging an idea close to my heart reached a milestone recently on flickr

[Code: Flickr Developer Blog » 100,000,000 geotagged photos (plus)]

I like the idea of creating a collective narrative of who we are and where we are, something only made possible by the internet, computers, and sites like flickr.
