The iPhone 5s Camera

Michael Tsai with a few great links about the iPhone 5s camera.

RIP Gotham

In the 2.0 release of Instagram, for reasons never explained, they removed my favorite filter: Gotham. I remember the moment vividly because I was in the midst of falling in love with Instagram. I'd found a compelling reason to take pictures with the iPhone, I was building a small active group of followers, and most […]

Why Marissa Mayer was really right, even if you hate hearing that fact. As I researched photography as a business and career, a funny thing happened. I realized that digital photography wasn’t making being a professional photographer easier or more lucrative, it was making it tougher. That’s because I wasn’t the only person who picked […]

Modern Magic (of Photography)

From CNN.

Here's the article. Retina Display Ready - meh. Darker UI - okay. Unified Library with iPhoto - Hmmm, I kind of liked my setup before. Advanced White Balance - sounds good. Improved Highlights and Shadows - Yay! Professional Auto Enhance - people use auto-enhance? Faster Browsing - woooo! Lots of Little Changes - Okay. Whatever. […]

I blame this review. Dammit. I won't be getting one, though. My Mark II (and, heck, the original 5D I have) are still great cameras. But I have $4k set aside for something - a new Mac Pro, most likely - but if Apple officially kills that line (goodness I hope not!) or something, then […]

Home Again

From Instagram (follow me if you'd like - I'm "iacas"), this shot was from the seat of my puddlejumper on the PHI-ERI flight. It will be great to sleep in my bed again tonight.

Foggy Range

From Instagram (follow me if you'd like - I'm "iacas"), this was shot on the Watson range at Reunion Resort. Beau Rials was there. Good guy, and whether you know it or not, you've probably seen him in several infomercials. We were fit for wedges, hit some of our new irons (still to be made), […]

Palms at Reunion

From Instagram (follow me if you'd like - I'm "iacas"), this shot was from the back of our house at Reunion resort as I sat by the pool. The picture is from a different day, as will most of the rest of the images. I'm backfilling. 🙂

Morning View of Florida

From Instagram (follow me if you'd like - I'm "iacas"), this shot was from the back of our house in an unfinished sub-development looking out over one of the courses (Nicklaus, I think) at Reunion resort. The foreground is mostly dirt with a few scrubby brushes and weeds, a reality nicely masked by whatever filter […]

olloclip for iPhone 4/4S

A few weeks ago, I picked up an olloclip. It's a three-in-one camera lens attachment for the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S. I've been impressed with the quality of the iPhone 4S cameras, so I jumped at the chance to try out the olloclip. The olloclip is a small attachment made of lightweight aluminum, reasonable […]

Sweet! Adjustments made to your phone are imported into Aperture as adjustments which can be undone! Still, the age-old advice still applies: get it right "in the camera."

DSLRU Design

Oftentimes I'll go back to a site I "designed" or helped to design months later and think "blech, that's terrible." Not so with DSLRU: Now I'm not saying these things are winning any awards or blowing anyone away, but they're well crafted, solid designs that I appreciate to this day. It'll be a […]

DSLRU Lessons Learned

Josh has a nice writeup on why DSLRU failed. The site and all of the code and intellectual property behind it remains available for a sale. Someone would do well to pick it up fairly inexpensively.
