When my eyes are pleased, my soul is happy: Shooting Caligraphy by the Sea

 
 

By IR reader René Theuillon

I love modern art!

I have written last March a short article describing some attempts at shooting in the way of Saul Leiter, and since that time, I have made a lot of extra pictures. But I am not very satisfied by the results! In his framings, Saul Leiter had the genius to select one...

I froze the ioSafe Solo Hawk SSD in a block of ice, and it still works

 
 

When evaluating hard drives, rare is the instance where I get to really stress test something. Like really stress it. Drives like the G-Tech ArmorATD and the LaCie Rugged are designed to get banged around, but within certain constrained parameters. They are designed to be shipped in FedEx boxes, not dropped down a...

To make a great photo, half the battle is ignoring the gear-centric portion of your brain

 
 

So much about making a good photo relies on you getting right the things that have nothing to do with what makes cameras popular. For the kinds of photos I like to take, which are timelapses, landscapes, and environmental portraits, there are so many parameters to remember outside of my knowledge of photography.

Theta in space: Ricoh partners with JAXA for out-of-this-world spherical panos

Portable & very powerful: Phase One announces brand-new XT camera system and I’ve gone hands-on

 
 

Having shot with the Phase One XF camera system alongside both IQ3 and IQ4 digital backs, a common issue I had with the system is its immense size and weight. Designed (and excellent) for studio applications, the XF camera is simply not a great fit for the landscape photography I enjoy doing. However, the...

Adobe finally, mercifully, kills off Premiere Clip

 
 

In perhaps a relatively quiet admission of their folly, Adobe today announced via email to subscribers that Premiere Clip will be laid to rest on September 17, 2019. When I first picked up Premiere Clip in 2014, I refused to review it as it felt like an incomplete product. It was more of an idea, and I wanted to...
