Have you ever scanned film negatives on your own? If so, you know it can be a time-consuming process. To help make sure you don’t waste time scanning unwanted negatives, YouTuber Adam of Ekenstam has shared a clever way to preview your negatives using an iPad. [Read more…]
If you’ve been to a wedding recently you’ve probably noticed this; if you make a living photographing weddings you’ve definitely seen it: more and more guests these days watch weddings through their smartphone screens as they photograph and record every moment of it. God forbid Facebook won’t get to see the entire ceremony.
While many photographers have a hard time with this trend, Thomas Stewart posted a rant along with several points for couples planning a wedding to consider. The post has gone viral and could be the boost needed towards unplugged weddings.
“The feedback from the general public has been amazing, and generally very positive,” Thomas told DIYP.
We’re talking about a toy versus a tool here – iPads are for ordering Sushi, the Surface Pro is for actual work.
I wouldn’t normally start an article with my conclusion, but in this case I though it would be fun to take a little bit of a lighthearted look at the differences between the newly announced iPad Pro versus the year old Microsoft Surface Pro 3.
While the iPad Pro will no doubt gather all the celebrity glitz from the usual suspects – the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 (and the soon to be announced Microsoft Surface Pro 4) are so far superior when it comes to performance and real world productivity it hardly seems fair to even compare the two.
One problem that we photographers (and other creative pros) run into a lot is the need for additional screen real estate. For those on the go and working from laptops, it’s really not convenient to carry around an extra LCD monitor in your bag (obviously). But, if you have an iPad or Android tablet, you may have just found your answer neigh at hand.
Instructables user Ironman 54 recently detailed the process of easily turning his iPad into an external monitor for his computer.
Last year I made an article about getting good gradient reflections on surfaces, but after a while of using this that I’ve come to realize that I actually get slightly better (and easier) results with a different technique.
You can consider this as he second part of the How To Get Gradient Reflection On Surfaces tutorial.
Last week, I wrote an article about shooting a watch using only one light, and I promised to write a Part 2 of this series on how to shoot a watch using more Photoshop work. So, I was in my studio preparing to do the 2nd part of the article and I brought my iPad for pegs and music. I was getting ready to shoot but something crazy hit me, what if I shot the watch using only my iPad (like I did a year ago for other products), could be something, right?
So, here is a step by step and behind the scenes tutorial on how to photograph a watch using your iPad. So instead of 2 Parts of my How to shoot a watch, it will be a 3 Parts Series.
After running a post detailing the ban of tablet photography at Manchester United home games last week, we asked our readers if we thought this might spark a trend and whether or not they thought more venues should and would pick up on the idea. Looking through the comments on that post it appears the consensus rules in favor of the ban and everyone seems to at least hope tablet photography gets banned in more places. If you are one of those people, I have some good news for you. It appears more and more musicians are starting to speak up against cell phone photography by pleading with concertgoers to leave their camera phones at home. Some are even banning such devices altogether.
