If I could get a copy or what you shot – one way or another (flickr, Dropbox, etc.) that would be great. Sometimes I find that even ‘not so great’ shots / blurry etc. can be cropped or adjusted to make for a cool photo.
Hi <redacted>, just a quick note –

screen cast of my iOS photography post workflow. For details see the previous post.
One of the awesome features of the Sony A7R II is WiFi – I can connect my iPhone to the camera and download images right away. So I actually have two different Post workflows. Continue reading “post process – from camera to iPhone to Mac”
When I was driving back and forth every week from Maryland to Atlanta I would listen to a slew of podcasts and audio books. Most of the podcasts were related to iOS, a platform I’m quite passionate about. Continue reading “What I’m listening to, now”
one of most hilarious things I ever read..post in MAD magazine years ago as a kid. In the astrology section (or whatever they call that part of the newspaper where they predict your future based on when you were born), Continue reading “Astrology”
I previously posted a couple of times what podcasts I was listening to. Back then, I was driving up and down the East coast every weekend between Maryland and Atlanta, so I had a lot of time to listen. Now, my commute time is much less, thankfully. That also means I spend less time listening to podcasts and audiobooks, and that time has a much more result-oriented focus. Continue reading “Podcasts I’m currently listening to”
I got my AppleTV a couple days ago, but had zero time to do anything with it. Last night I finally just unboxed it b/c I couldn’t wait anymore, but I still haven’t even plugged it in.
My HD TV set only has three HDMI ports, so I dug around in our TV cabinet last night to disconnect my old Google Android TV box, to make room for the Apple TV. I can’t even remember what the thing is really called, only that it was made by Logitech. It started acting glitchy and needed a hard reboot every time I wanted to use it so I just stopped using it long ago. Like all my other Android devices it seems to have just stopped working sitting around unused, although in this case at least it was supplied with power. It’s made of plastic and came with a wireless keyboard that had a built-in trackpad that always felt clumsy to use. It’s about as wide as my Macbook Pro, but light and cheap.
In contrast, I was a bit surprised at how tiny the Apple TV was. Small form factor, but very solid with a hefty weight. It’s the best packaged Apple product I’ve seen, yet. Better than the Macbook Pro or original iPhone packaging. I heard the watch is really nicely packaged too but I haven’t seen that as yet. The remote is awesome just to touch and feel, even though I haven’t used it with the TV yet or anything. It has two kinds of surfaces, one for touch and the bottom half is glass, they both feel amazing. It’s like no other materials – out of this world. In a nutshell, it is overtly apparent that the design team at Apple went to great lengths to make this a product like none before it. I never imagined I would be so impressed with the material design of a device, to bother writing a post about it before even plugging the thing in!
Starting to write unit tests in Swift 2 / Xcode 7 so thought I would keep a list of resources and share. Plan to keep this post updated as I find more. Feel free to ping additional resources in the comments!
There are three life experiences I’ve had, that I strongly feel every adult should experience. They are things that have opened my eyes to reality in a way that only experience can do; knowing something by being taught it or hearing about it is never the same as experiencing it for yourself.

The day I got my DSLR, many years ago, I took a bunch of test shots having no clue what I was doing. One of those shots I have always considered my best photo, ever, even though it was totally random and lucky. As of yesterday, that shot has been replaced as my favorite shot ever, with an image I took with my iPhone 4S.
