And yet another modification...
I can't express adequately just how convenient and easy it is to modify some of the older film equipment in ways one couldn't even begin to contemplate with modern digital cameras. This sort of thing was standard practice when I started photography as a profession in the early 1970's.

Using The iPad Pro As A Laptop
So, I have gone a little bit googly-eyed over my iPad Pro 11". At first, I’ll be honest, I wasn’t loving it all that much and it didn’t take long for buyer’s remorse to set in when I got it home.

Learning how to use tools again
Rediscovering the thing that went missing with digital as far as modifying and re-hashing the actual equipment is concerned, the old cameras really do enable a hands-on ability to shape things the way you want without having to have a degree in computer science or electronics.

Life in 16mm (w/Fujinon XF16mm F2.8 R WR lens)
Seeing life with a more wide angle of view is not rare thing but for many it may be a photographic higher challenge compare to the more selective view of a telephoto lens. Yes there is already a lot of landscape (nature or urban) aficionados around the who are producing striking pictures so why limit the use o a wide angle lens to that specialized purpose?

Shooting Commercial Interiors
It seems that my name is being passed on to the right people. I was commissioned this week to photograph a private college campus for an architectural design firm based down in Cape Town and I was really excited to finally work directly with an architect, especially one from another city (bodes well for the future).

Losing A Regular Photography Gig
Last year was a pretty good year for me on the work front. This year started off well too, but then I went away on safari and came back on 1 July to find that my main photography gig had pretty much disappeared from under my nose.
 
So what happened?

The Rise Of Computational Photography
Let’s just say you, like me, make money out of photography by being able to do things with cameras and software that non-experienced photographers firstly have no clue on how to do, and secondly don’t have the patience to be able to learn. It’s a good situation for us to to be in, because we are filling a need that this other person has and of course we can charge them for these skills we have developed. But what if something came along that enabled that non-experienced person to produce images that are very close to what we can create with our skillset?

Photographing The Modern Wedding
I’ve got a big problem with the way weddings are being photographed these days and it’s for various reasons that I don’t offer wedding photography as part of my services. The number one issue I have with it is that it’s not about the wedding anymore. It’s about this monster that wedding photographers have come to call “the creative shoot”.

I'm not quite sure how this came to pass...
...but two years ago I was fully digital with an extensive Fuji-X outfit and a Sigma sd Quattro-H and some classic lenses as my main working tools, and the only vestige I had of my initial 35 years in film photography was an all-but abandoned Mamiya RB/RZ outfit.

How I Became A Professional Photographer - Part I
I got hooked on photography when I was 32 years old, so by my reckoning almost 20 years have passed since I bought my first "serious" camera. But the obsession didn't start there, it went way back to when I was just 12. As a boy I was given a Canomatic "Instamatic" camera by my parents for my 12th birthday and I loved it, but it wasn't like the SLR cameras I would see in the windows of camera stores around the city. Those cameras looked the business.
