Don't Let Pixel Envy Drag You Down

One of my favourite photos:It’s an unfinished marble statue of a nude female torso, standing outdoors near the waterfront in Naxos, a Cycladic Greek Island.It’s particularly pleasing to me for many reasons, and not because it just sold for the 4th time.It’s an astonishing work of art in this unfinished state. Maybe the sculptor had a fight with his model, went home for a souvlaki and coffee, and never came back. Whatever, I’m glad he didn’t.It also reminds me of holidaying on Naxos, one... continue reading

Newer camera but more noise

I recently upgraded my venerable Panasonic GH1 m43 camera with a newer one, the GH3 which was on sale.

The GH3 is more noisy. Let me explain. The... continue reading

Pause, it's time for a bit of Illustrator

Raster images are made up tiny solid color areas called pixels. Every pixel contains information about color and placement.The number of pixels determines the resolution of the image. A bitmap image of 600 pixels enlarged by 500% will have the same number of pixels but each pixel will cover a larger area and this results in a pixelated image. Unlike raster images, vector files are generated by programs (Ai, Corel) which combine mathematical functions and coordinates that allow them to be stored in... continue reading
