CameraMator: Wireless Tethered Photography

August 29, 2012

Move your photo sessions beyond the viewfinder to images that jump onto your iPad screen — while you shoot!

Instantly preview images on your iPad — no cables to get in your way. Share your work and collaborate with remote colleagues through the cloud.

With CameraMator you will have a faster, more creative photo shoot that gets client buy-in before you wrap the session. You’ll save time and avoid potentially expensive re-takes, letting you put your focus on the finished product.

“CameraMator is a very well-designed product.  I was able to walk around my studio with the iPad in my hand, making adjustments as I worked. What’s great is that even without a WiFi router, the iPad and my Mac worked with each other.  The speed of the image transfer from my camera to my iPad was impressive. It saved me so much time.  And the pinch-to-zoom operation was very smooth and useful.  Overall this is an amazing piece of technology that will become a permanent part of my studio from now on.”

New London to New Brighton Antique Car Run 2012

August 12, 2012

About the New London to
New Brighton Antique Car Run

How it all began……. The New London to New Brighton Antique Car Run began in 1987 during New Brighton’s Centennial Celebration. The City added the Run to its calendar of events that year as a way of strengthening its namesake ties to Brighton, England. Complete with a visit by the Mayor of Brighton and other English guests, the 1st Annual Antique Car Run was held with 17 participants. The Antique Car Run is an American version of the prestigious London to Brighton Commemorative Run held annually in England. This grand daddy of runs began in 1896 to celebrate the repeal of the “red flag” law. At the start of the motorized vehicle era in the late 1800’s, automobiles, or horseless carriages, created havoc on city streets trying to mix with horse drawn carriages.

The American Version…….. The New London to New Brighton Antique Car Run is a 120 mile tour of the Minnesota countryside. Unlike the English event run through the crowded streets of the big city, this Minnesota Run starts in the small rural community of New London and takes participants past sumptuous fields and quaint farm houses as it winds its way into the suburban city of New Brighton. Along the way, drivers and passengers are treated to a smorgasbord of home-style hospitality second to none. The Run travels through 5 communities where volunteers roll out the red carpets. Food, friendship and fun are everywhere. With the quaint towns, local events, costumed drivers and gleaming vintage cares, this unique event guarantees “turn of the century” charm for at least one day!

Hope iPhone Theme

November 21, 2011

As a graphic design enthusiast I’m passionate in supporting the iPhone theme community.  One theme that caught my attention goes by the name HOPE.  I’m mainly supporting this cause by producing optional background wallpapers.  You will find everything from graphic options to weather widgets.

 There are many people involved in the creation of this theme all through donating time and love for others.  Go HERE to visit the Modmyi thread and see what this game is all about.  You can even donate to the World Food Program as a way to give back.

Here’s a few wallpapers I’ve contributed to the thread.  Some are for jailbroken phones and ones with frames are for stock iPhones.

Rainy Day Photography: 35 Dazzling Examples

September 24, 2011

A lot of photographers consider the bad weather as one of the worst things for shooting high quality photos outside. In my opinion, there is no bad or good weather for shooting photographs, as each weather has got its own beauty. Bad weather, especially the raining time, is the best period to try out and shoot some rare and beautiful works into your portfolio.

The Shot Glass Lens Set

August 15, 2011

Some mornings you want a shot of espresso before taking shots of anything photogenic. For those days, we present our set of 3 Lens Shot Glasses: just like tiny lenses, only hollow!

They’re perfect in every detail, from the teeny raised numbers to the focus-ring ridges to the wee auto/manual focus switch. They’re nice and heavy, too: sturdy ceramic that feels solid in your hand.

Since you get 3, you can stash memory cards in one, make another into a tiny planter, and sip your espresso from the third!

And remember, if ever you miss that one perfect shot — you can always make another tomorrow morning!

To purchase a set of these cool shot glasses go to Photojojo.
