Cross Processing

Singapore Rock Show
The image posted today was made using the Olympus OM-D 4/3 camera and processed using the iPad. With the OM-D one is able to shoot raw and JPEG simultaneously, and, tirelessly transfer both to the IOS device of your choice for processing. It is nice to have slightly more resolution without the weight of a more traditional camera.....

Bal,Fishing Boat

Fishing Boat, Bali
Every day at 3AM these small boats go fishing out in the Indian Ocean. off the coast of eastern Bali. These are very small boats in a very big ocean....

I was out as sunrise this particular morning but did manage to catch one boat coming in a bit early....Actually got to watch them pull the boat up the rocky coast onto dry land.....

This image was made using the Olympus 4/3 OM-D and process on the iPad and CS6.

Bali, Day 1

Bali - Day One, iPhone4s
This image was made the first day in Bali - the scene was just behind my hotel room the day I arrived. Thought it looked a bit like an elephant with a bell hanging from it's trunk......I also see faces around the lower part of the trunk - the one that stands out the most is on the right side,,,,sort of a rocker with a pompadour... also a Lion or some sort of cat on the left side.......

Apple iPad and Olympus OM-D

The Palouse, 4/3 OM-D image
This is another image form the workshop in the Palouse. The image was made using the OM-d 4/3 Camera and then processed on the iPad and laptop. The original sky was completely blue so I added a few layers of clouds using weather FX and Photo Wizard. Finished it all off using NIK CFX4 on my laptop. Adding clouds using Weather FX works out well but you might need to add a bit of grunge.

Vik Beach, Iceland, iPhone4s Image
Sitting on the plane to Los Angeles and found this image on my laptop hard drive. I have made three trips to Iceland and always find time to get back to Vik. First off the landscape is wonderful but he real draw are the hot dog s you can buy at the petrol station about 300 yards behind where this image was out Nathan's... At any rate I am off on an adventure in Asia - Hong Kong - Bali and Singapore. Part work and part photography.......Stay tuned for some new images.....

Olympus OM-D and iPad

As mentioned in this blog before my friend Dan Burkholder turned me on to the Olympus micro 4/3 mirror-less camera a few weeks back. I ordered it immediately from Amazon and have not put it down since receiving the UPS package. One of the selling points for me was the wireless transfer of images direct from the camera to my iPad for processing(using an eye-fi card).

Today's image from the Last Pixel Show Workshop in The Palouse was made using the O;Olympus )M-D and processed on my iPad. THe apps used were FXPhotoStudio, Snapseed, Dramatic Black and White and Filterstorm. I also added the clouds to a blank sky using Photo Wizard.NIK Color EFX4 was used to make a few global adjustments before posting.
