Why I Quit Instagram

February 7, 2013

Instagram. It’s become a household name, and a must-have app for both iOS and Android. I’ll admit, I’ve used Instagram a lot in the past. I’ve browsed other’s photos, liked photos, and even posted photos. It’s nice when some random person ‘likes’ your photo or comments on it.

Fast forward almost 3 years later. Instagram isn’t what it used to be. Read More

Welding Glass Photography [Experiment]

June 5, 2011

I recently found about a new DIY filter that produces some interesting results (from other photographers!). It turns out, if you put a piece of welding glass in front of your lens, it acts as a very affordable neutral density filter. Basically, you can shoot in daylight while doing long exposures. I’ve heard this looks best with clouds, water, and for removing people from a busy downtown scene. Since we have one of the three out here in west Texas (clouds), I went out to one of my favorite (and first) ghost towns, Penwell, to try some test shots. The clouds were not great, but I figured since I wasn’t doing anything else… Read More

WakeMate for iPhone [Review]

January 24, 2011

Back in late 2009, a company appeared out of nowhere around the tech blogs claiming to have a new way to get better sleep. That company was Perfect Third, makers of the WakeMate. On January 2, 2010, I decided to take the plunge and pre-ordered my WakeMate for $50. If I could have a product that would help me with my sleep, and it looked like the image below, I’ll be all over it. Read More

Replace an iPhone 4 Back [How-To]

December 17, 2010

I recently ordered a new back for my iPhone 4 from Canada. It’s a stainless steel looking back and I really enjoy it, but when it comes to taking pictures and using the flash, it just doesn’t compare to the regular glass back of the iPhone 4. So here’s a quick walkthrough of how to change out the back on your iPhone 4.

The Glif [iPhone 4]

December 15, 2010

The Glif tripod mount & stand for iPhone 4 was a Kickstarter project from two guys from New York. Needless to say, they weren’t the only two people that thought a tripod mount was needed for the iPhone 4. In fact, they had 5,273 backers pledge $137,417 (they just needed $10,000!). I was one of the backers, so as soon as the production started on the Glif, I got one. These guys did such a great job at informing the backers of what all was happening with the design and even the manufacturing process (unlike some companies… *cough*WakeMate*cough*). Read More

Really Nice Hotel

November 5, 2010

I got to take a trip to Frisco, TX for work so of course I went down a day early so I could find things to photograph (see my post on the Botanical Gardens). When I finally got to the hotel I was staying at for work, I was blown away. This place was nice. I’ve stayed in an Embassy Suites hotel before, but this one was the top of the line. Read More
