10 Workflow Hacks for Web Designers to Supercharge Productivity

Resolving to be more productive at work perhaps ranks next to developing an exercise habit and eating more healthy food as resolutions that are easiest to declare but most difficult to actually achieve. Sure, there can be special snowflakes that always manage to get the job done without any distractions. But there is also the rest of us---the easily-distracted, unmotivated, and selectively lazy bunch. Worse, these traits are often associated with those who have desk jobs (i.e. web designers,... continue reading

Creative projects as a way to train your eye - a review

Last year I wrote a short entry on how to use creative projects to train your eyes and stay creative. I also mentioned in that entry, that I had plans on taking part in a 52 week creative project where one had to create one image each week for a theme. This entry then is to review this challenge, to tell you what I liked about it and what I became increasingly sceptical about - and why, in consequence I won't do a 52 week challenge this year.Background:I had consciously already decided against... continue reading

Workflow for your compact camera photos

Don't have a DSLR that produces very high quality images? Read on!Modern DSLR cameras are highly flexible, fast and produce RAW format images which contain all the data produced by the image sensor. That means none of your data is lost and most of the adjustments can be done later to achieve impressive results. But what if you only have highly compressed JPEG images only? What if you shot a photo at 14MP and it is hardly 2MB in size?That simply means you lost a LOT of color information because... continue reading

Creative projects - how to stay creative and train your eyes.

How do you keep your creativity flowing? How do you train your eyes to see photographically? I have creative projects that help me with that. I have a few projects going, most of them are long term projects.One project is the "Project Green" where I try to find images where green is the dominant color or the subject. What I found helpful in this project is that I look at the things around me, trying to notice things that are green. There are so many things that are green.
