Something that I don´t often do. However, with my dear friend Knut, his brother Asle and their wonderful friends in Norway it all went well. We caught lots of fish. Fishing is very relaxing. Also taking care of the net after is contemplative. We had so much of everything and nothing to talk about. First time I managed to photograph fishing as well.
These days fake is a common word. Many people present alternative facts and want us to beleive in their truth. This is a very interesting test I noticed in the Washington Post. Read the article and do the test. I have. The research was done in England.
So amid this fakery and our obsession these days with “fake news,” just how good are we at separating fact from fiction when it comes to photos?
Not good at all, says Sophie J. Nightingale, who researches cognitive psychology at the University of Warwick in England.
The other day I went to Old Town here in Stockholm. Already filled with lots of tourists. A great place to be. Many cafés and restaurants. Galleries and shops. I went there to test a favorite lens. A TS 45 mm. I like the way I can handle it. Like how I work with my Sinar view camera. Though it is so much smaller and comfortable to bring a SLR on a walk. This is how my images looks like. 😊 If you get a chance, visit our Old Town! You don´t have to walk among all the tourist shops. There are small adventures on every narrow side street. Perhaps you, as I did, just can stumble upon a small concert in a church.
I see mostly the same jockeys and the same horses, but it is never ever the same. The weather changes, and my angles. And everything else. Some of my images are not about racing but still lifes/details from the horses or jockeys. It is a colorful and very exciting sport! The owners and trainers often pimp their racing darlings. Now I am looking forward to a dirty dirttrack, AND a couple of exhibitions with my images. Exciting! From yesterdays races at Bro Park. 😊🏇😊 Pelle
The inventors of digital cameras have won the highest international engineering prize.
This year’s £1m Queen Elizabeth Prize recognises the development of the technologies that turn light into digital signals.
The Royal Academy of Engineering judging panel said the inventors’ work had “revolutionised” the world.
It sure did… This story was told by BBC.
My first digital camera was a 4×5″ scanner, a Dicomed, with a file size of 129 mb.
A study of industry data by Prof Fossum suggests that 100 digital cameras are made every second and a billion photos are uploaded each day.
Asked if he was proud that his development gave rise to a technology that is so ubiquitous, Dr Tompsett told BBC News he had some mixed feelings. Yes, he felt some pride, but he “also felt the opposite”.
“I feel frustrated by all these people who have cameras, taking pictures of everything in sight – and selfies. You are walking along and a selfie stick suddenly appears.”
And he added wryly: “I sometimes think whoever invented this technology should be dealt with.”
