Snapseed vs…

So is the Workaround worth it? For some things, maybe… but it’s really just another image toy. So here’s the Original.And here’s the Snapseed edit.Compare that to a similar edit from Enlight. Pretty similar… Except for the Glow filter in Snapseed (which I quite like), and all the borders and artistic filters and whatnot in […]

Did 2.0.1 fix the problem with Snapseed?

So I noticed that Snapseed had a bug-fix update after work today, and eagerly installed it. Did 2.0.1 squash the bug? Before I get to that, I thought of something I forgot to check earlier… the newfangled Photos app I won’t be using… Sadly, it doesn’t see the edits either. (This was likely a silly […]

Hipstamatic Disposable update 11 – 3 years later

I’ve been looking through my archives lately, and I came across the pictures I shot with Hipstamatic’s D series app. I didn’t recognize them at first, but one benefit of keeping a blog going this long is the ability to go back in time. I wondered how the D series would fare on the iPhone […]

It’s probably more preference than anything. I […]

Bokeh Battle: D7000/FG

Bokeh really is all about the size of the recording medium. Again, it’s contrast, saturation, sharpness vs raw physicality. But this time, the difference between the 1.5 crop and the ‘full frame’ is obvious… InshaAllah one day I’ll get my hands on a medium format or 4×5 (or 8×10…) and see what real bokeh looks like.
