tfttf643 – Here’s An Idea On A Golden Plate

flattr this!

642

Chris discusses the death of Aperture and what that means for photographers (hint: the future is not too bleak). He will also talk about shooting in the Dublin Docks with an iPhone and about the idea that was born from that. If you are a photographer, “Straight Cam” might literally change your perspective. If you are an iOS developer, make sure you don’t miss this unique idea for an app, and it even includes marketing!

Quote of the day:
“Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.” – Don McCullin

tfttf642 – Blown Away By A Tornado – Interview with Dr. Mac

flattr this!

642b

Chris talks with Bob “Dr. Mac” Levitus, author of great books (such as iPad for Dummies, iPhone for Dummies, OS X Mavericks For Dummies, and more), host of his soon-to-be-released tv show, who claims his middle name should be “paranoid” – why? Because he keeps copies of his data (including his photos) in at least three different places. Just in case his house gets blown away by a tornado – not too unlikely, given that he lives in Texas.
