Another new camera lol

Posted 11-27-2010 at 06:04 AM by palms

Yes i have got another new camera ( a rare opportunity arose so i treated myself)
I have stuck with the fuji finepix but got a newer model
a S1800
the main attraction was bigger zoom this one is 18x,
but along with this came a extra 4 million mega pixels, face detection, smile detection, blink detection,auto zoom, and ability to take panorama's, so what i thought would be a easy transition is another new learning curve !
these are some i have taken so far to...

Stop! The presses or why I love/hate Flipboard

Surfing the internet on a touchscreen is wonderfully intuitive I find. I'm old enough to remember when hypertext links were new. I thought they would be incredibly powerful one day. Little did I know how much.

And now there's this application that turns any Twitter/Facebook feed into compact and nicely formatted magazine.

But only those.

Flipboard makes my Google Reader account; Zinio, PDF reader and things like Posterous & LiveJournal look like dinosaurs....

Dutch Utopia, Dutch Heaven

Dutch Utopia
There's a local exhibit of American oil paintings of Holland from the late 1800's called Dutch Utopia. They have that amazing chiaroscuro light...but with pale impressionist colors. I do believe this could be the 'missing link' between van Gogh's dark Flemish style and his work that started in the Paris salon and ended in Provence. Fun stuff. They painted idyllic Dutch villages while in America industrialization was making the landscape not so picaresque. My one beef with this...

has the term "Photoshop" become generic?

In talking to people lately I've noticed that they've used the term 'Photoshop' to mean any kind of digital editing.

So even if they are using iPhoto or any other kind of software they call it 'Photoshopping' not digital retouching (that last sure doesn't roll easily off of the tongue). We just don't seem to have a good word that describes post processing.

In the two years since I started editing my photographs in the computer I've noticed a shift from; the-only-good-picture-is-one-that-comes-straight-out-of-the-camera...
