Posterous, the verdict so far… and another panoramic from Iceland


Posterous I've spent some time today working on Posterous and my initial impressions are that it's awesome. As you will see from the look of the site, it's completely customisable and this is done through editing/adding CSS and HTML.  It was almost a straight copy and paste from blogger to posterous with a little bit of tweaking to perfect the look.  One thing of note

DNS… oh dear DNS…


I've decided to go with Posterous as I really like the way it works... but... I now have an issue. I switched DNS to point blogging.eyeforimages.com to Blogger (my old hoster) and blog.eyeforimages.com to Posterous... of course, now both are in a changing state across the name servers of the internet and it will take up to 24-48 hours before these are updated...  So, on

To Posterous or not to Posterous, that is the question…


I've been looking at different ways that I can manage my social media and I've found some pretty good solutions out there...  This is my first post to posterous and I'll be interested to see how this works, I've linked it to every account that Posterous supports, that I own. This included linkedin, facebook fan page, twitter, tumblr, wordpress, youtube, delicious and a couple of

Ipad – The Photographers Toolkit – TPE; The Photographer’s Ephemeris


A lot of people will know the photographer's ephemeris, it's a very well known and powerful app for assessing the best time of the year to visit specific landscape locations and get shots with the sun in exactly the right position in relation to the landscape.  It takes all of the guess work from shooting on location and increases the chance for success.  The example

Ipad – The photographers Toolkit – Weather Apps


I've bought/downloaded a bucket load of weather apps for the iPad, many are absolutely useless.  The information about the weather is hit and miss, the amount of detail is limited and really not enough to get a feeling of what is going to be happening on the day I'm out shooting. I eventually settled on a few applications for my weather planning, but all of them

Ipad – The photographers toolkit? Part 1


This is the first part in a multi part blog article about the Ipad as a photographers toolkit. I've been a convert to the Ipad platform for a couple of months now.  I used to love my Acer NetBook on the road, it was the perfect tool for being out and about doing landscape photography. Surfing the net, doing research and tying that back into where

Portrait Session – Pippa


Last week I had the pleasure of doing a shoot for Richard and Ange who wanted some shots of their 8 month old daughter, Pippa.  I spent around 3 hours with the family, 2 hours for the main shoot including bath time, 30 minutes for her eventually to fall asleep and a quick 30 minute shoot once she was asleep.I'd already been around to the

Three – Huawei E585 MiFi


This weekend I purchased a new gadget from Three, the UK mobile network.  It is the Huawei E585 MiFi Device on a pay as you go contract.  You may be asking what MiFi is, well instead of a dongle sticking out of your USB port on your laptop when you want a 3G network on the move, this device is a personal Wireless Network, so

iStockPhoto.Com – Fail or Win?


This week I made my submission to iStockPhoto to setup an account as a contributing photographer.  The process was fairly straigh forward, you need to create your basic account, the standard username, password, email etc, nothing too exciting. Then they guide you through a pretty comprehensive description of what they consider to be good quality photos.  There are basic guidelines you have to follow for
