As has been the case in past years, work has kicked in and I’ve had no time to post over the past three months. The big thing to report is that I’ve started getting into video, and no longer own a Nikon camera (that is perhaps the biggest news after seven years as a loyal customer). So, er, how about that archive?
It’s been more than a year since Adobe told us they were working on this, and now Lightroom for iPad is finally here. This is a big deal :) Continue reading
Couple of geek announcements: Nikon has gone official with the D4s, the interim update to its flagship pro DSLR. You may not like big cameras but this is still a hell of a piece of kit, and I for one have always lusted after it. Continue reading
