Re: Alternatives to Lightroom

I switched to ACDSEE, like two of the software mentioned in the review you don't need to import your files. It has all of the LR functionality and if you need it layers etc. In terms of switching from LR, it was a painless process. The only thing I have missed is the active second monitor. While it...

Who Needs 102 MP?

Not many, I suspect, but that is what Fuji is offering with its new GFX 100 model. And are bragging rights really worth the hassle of having to deal with such large files? Having spoken earlier this year to an architectural photographer who uses a top end Hasselblad, the dynamic range and high ISO p...

The time will be 14:30 and the venue will be my house. Can everyone who expressed an interest confirm that they will be able to attend. There is...

Duck House

I have heard a lot about duck houses, but never actually see one. Until today. I am not sure how much use it gets, mainly as I did not see any ducks. Maybe they were all inside, putting their (webbed) feet up?
