  • Give it Your Best Shot • Re: Eagle Pics July 25, 2016
    .Thanks for the information, JBTaylor;I know what you mean...That last shot of the eagles perched on the top of the rocks and the seals watching you and the boat do look odd indeed. Most of the times we don't see all of these things happening at the same time...Apparently there are 'touristy' reasons. They are […]

  • Give it Your Best Shot • Re: A Bridge July 25, 2016
    .Hi JBTaylor;Bridges are always interesting. : )I like the first shot for showing the technological/structural design to a certain extent in a close up and the second one for showing off the aesthetics of the structure lending its own rather brutal beauty to the surrounding environment. As for the third, it's good to know that […]

Tilt-shift with full frame DSLRs

After just a short while working with full frame, high resolution DSLRs the need for tilt lenses has really come home to me. Most lenses deliver their best results at fairly wide apertures like f8, it’s easy for detail to begin to look soft and lacking impact if you are forced to stop down to . . . → Read More: Tilt-shift with full frame DSLRs

Alpha 900 and photokina: Part 1

OUR final production Alpha 900 body arrived on Saturday September 20th, and went along to photokina 2008 on Monday 22nd where it was used in a routine way – without flash – to take whatever pictures were needed for magazine reports. Sometimes it can be better just to use a camera on whatever difficult or . . . → Read More: Alpha 900 and photokina: Part 1

Alpha 900 HDR bracketing

At the Edinburgh Alpha 900 launch, I braced myself firmly against an open window, leaning out over the street, and tried an example . . . → Read More: Alpha 900 HDR bracketing

Which Sony Alpha kit lens?

This article was originally published in Photoworld magazine April 2008. It discusses the reasons for choosing between the 18-70mm, 16-105mm, 16-80mm, 18-200mm and 18-250mm kit lens choices for the Sony Alpha DSLR system and has been updated as necessary from the original text.

Apple Aperture 2.0 processes A700 raw

Apple’s Aperture 2.0 is a tedious program to test, with all its creation of ‘projects’ and ‘libraries’, ‘albums’, ‘vaults’ and nonstandard GUI, and it isn’t fast in processing files or passing them to Photoshop (which it does in 16-bit form, just another step to reverse before saving as far as I’m concerned). However, it’s handling . . . → Read More: Apple Aperture 2.0 processes A700 raw
