I love my Fuji X100. First of all, it has saved me a lot of money. I was strongly considering a Leica M9 or Leica M9-P. Thanks to the wonderful guys in the Photografica camera-store here in Copenhagen, I had a chance to play around with, and shoot with, both the FujiFilm X100 and the Leica […]
Create Your Product **Before** You Create It
As Stephen Covey (who sadly died recently) proposed in his classic 1989 book The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People – you should start with the end in mind.
Happy Birthday dear Final Cut Pro X!
Today it’s one year since Apple finally released Final Cut Pro X – the long-awaited update to Final Cut Pro. Reception was mixed, and many dedicated long-time users of Final Cut Pro were, understandably, worried and frustrated. Final Cut Pro X wasn’t just an update. It wasn’t even “just” a rewrite. It wasn’t “just” a […]
SlideDeck 2.1 is out on the streets
Even though the version numbering of SlideDeck 2.1 – which was released today may sound like a somewhat minor update, it really is kinda major. First a little history: SlideDeck 1 When SlideDeck 2 was released back in March, it was an entirely different beast compared to SlideDeck version 1. The old SlideDeck was focused […]
Headway Themes 3.2 Just Released!
The good people from Headway Themes have been busy lately. Yesterday they launched their Extend marketplace (offering child themes and extensions) but they also just came out with Headway version 3.2! What I’m happy to see Templates can now be named! Finally. It’s ’bout time. TimThumb replaced by the Aqua Resizer Library. Various bug fixes. […]
Headway Themes Launch Child Theme Marketplace
After being delayed for a few days due to technical challenges regarding the coincidental release of WordPress 3.4, Headway Themes, makers of the Headway theme (you’d never guessed that would ya?) just launched their fancy new, long awaited aaaaand much anticipated: Extend marketplace. The idea is to sell Blocks (Headway extensions) as well as Headway child […]
Should social media buttons die?
Oliver Reichenstein of iA recently posted a controversial linkbait blog post (okay okay – I’ll bite it) on social media buttons. Apparently he doesn’t like ’em! I’m all for minimalism – and the removal of everything unnecessary. That’s what I’m all about when I design websites, shoot photos or evaluate design. But now that I’ve thought about this subject for […]
3 Reasons Steve Jobs was an Objectivist
I’ll start out right away by openly declaring my admiration and high regards for both Ayn Rand and Steve Jobs. Both were great visionaries, that the world needed in order to progress forward. Whenever I read Ayn Rand’s novel The Fountainhead, I can’t help thinking that the one real life person who’ve most obviously exemplified […]
Freemium is Not a Business Model, it’s a Marketing Model
I’ve spent some time this Sunday morning, watching a video on Carsonified’s Vimeo channel, in which Jason Fried from 37 Signals gives a FOWA speak on making money off your by-products. In it, he touches delicately upon the subject of “freemium” and why he thinks it is a bad business decision to give away stuff […]
Review of the Sony HDR-XR500/520 video camcorder
I visited a Sony store in Barcelona back in March and I remember how surprised I was to find that Sony products suffer from such poor design nowadays. I had heard Sony Vaio laptops was praised for their design, yet to me they looked extremely cheap. Shiny plastic, in an uncool way. It just screams […]
Olympus E-P1 Sample Images – My Initial Impressions
Well, when I first saw the Olympus E-P1 I was hooked. The design, the idea of having 720p video with shallow DOF (depth-of-field) and beautiful bokeh in a compact camera with interchangeable lenses. Being a Sigma shooter, a Foveonite if you will, I also got a lurking feeling of disbelief. This will be the end […]
IntenseDebate Review – Short and Sour
This morning I’ve had a rather intense debate with myself;-) Should I uninstall the IntenseDebate blog commenting system, recently purchased by Automattic the WordPress kings. After some internet research I found out it was not just me. Other people have had problems with spam not getting filtered properly, comments not showing but was supposed to. […]
Panasonic DMC-GH1 = Wauw!
For a long time, I’ve been wanting to take the leap from shooting still images, to dabbling with moving images. First came the measly Nikon D90 and the mighty Canon EOS 5D Mark II. Then came the Nikon D5000. I got excited! Then came reality. They all suffered from various problems. Wobbly jello effect because […]
Gary Fong Lightsphere & Cactus V2s
This morning I was woken up by the mailman who had a package for me, from China. Whoohah, I was instantly on, as I knew that could only be… something good… something I’ve been looking forward to… something… from… Gadget Infinity! Any Strobist fan knows that Gadget Infinity is heaven for both your photography, wallet, […]
Deep! Search Your Images by Color
Ironic Software earlier today released version 1.0 of their new app called Deep of which I’ve been a beta tester. If you don’t know Ironic Software, they’re the makers of Leap and Yep. Don’t know Leap and Yep? Well, first of all they’re both apps made exclusively for Mac OS X, so Windows users need […]
Textpattern vs WordPress – a Lack of Momentum
When it comes to content management systems, there are plenty to choose from. I’ve worked with Textpattern, Drupal, Mambo, Joomla, WordPress, and Textpattern. The reason I mention Textpattern twice, is because it has often been my first choice since early 2004, and often has been the second choice that got the job done when the […]
Curio! The App Any Creative Must Have
If you are a creative, working on a Mac computer, you are already familiar with Adobe’s Creative Suite and possibly some of Apple’s pro applications, like Final Cut Pro and Motion. You may even be using Apple’s iWork suite, using Pages for layout and writing as well as the amazing Apple Keynote for presentation slides (and so […]
Printer settings for making the ColorMunki work (on a Mac)
Due to popular demand I’ve had a few requests from ColorMunki users, that I would please post how I made my ColorMunki properly create good, solid printer profiles. So, here I go. Printer profiling with the X-Rite ColorMunki is easy… When you know how. At least that was my experience. I had to do more […]
Keep it cool with the Rain Design mStand
Get on with the ergonomics Being in front of a laptop for 8-10 hours a day (yes I have a lot of work to do these days) 6 days a week, will almost certainly rear its ugly head at some point in the future, as severe back pains, neck pains, the works… So, today I […]
When I went on vacation to Ibiza in late July, I brought with me the audio version of Ayn Rand’s classic Atlas Shrugged, the bible of many libertarians, which I consider myself to be. It is a dry read though. More than two days and nights of strong selfishness. Anyway, tonight we were watching a […]
