GoPro and the iPad App

GoPro and the iPad App

Something totally technical (somebody could say just nerdy) for a change: GoPro came up with their long awaited iPhone/iPad app couple of weeks ago. I couldn’t get it to work (not that I tried that much…); but today I noticed something they posted on Twitter and decided to give it another try. Updated my three GoPro Hero2’s with Cineform Studio …

Olympics, Day 11: The Reuters App

Olympics, Day 11: The Reuters App

It’s just an app. And yet, it is our future. Reuters has an interesting iPad app from these games. If you are not familiar with it and have an iPhone/iPad, I suggest you try it out (it’s free). Reuters has c. 50 photo­graphers in these games. Some photo­graphy legends (such as Kai Pfaffenbach) — and all of them …

Olympics, Day 10: Size does not matter…

Olympics, Day 10: Size does not matter…

Days just fly by. Covered wrestling the other day, yesterday did kayak for the first time — I will be doing that now for several days towards the end of the week. Finland got the first medal yesterday (windsurfing), but as it was in Weymouth I was not shooting it. Bummer… Friend of mine sent me a real …

Olympics: QR-code

Olympics: QR-code

Some readers of this blog might remember me getting real excited about the possi­bi­lities of the QR-code in our profession. I still think it might be (or might HAVE been) a great transi­tional technology when we are making the move from the printed paper to other (multi­media capable) platforms. At the time, I tried convince couple of editors that …

Multimedia Production: DocImages

Multimedia Production: DocImages

Everybody reading this blog in the past knows where I stand when it comes to our future: I am strongly of the opinion that paper as a medium for daily news will slowly fade out (actually, not so slowly…) and the future is elsewhere. Let me just refer you to my last post — and leave it to that. Everything …

Oslo 2011 Skiing: A Multimedia Approach

Oslo 2011 Skiing: A Multimedia Approach

Been here now three days: fog, rain, snow… It is a question of choosing your profession, I guess, but I just don’t enjoy being wet all the time — nor does my camera equipment. Plus in this total “grayness” it is hard to make photo­graphy worth showing. But yesterday I made something which I consider might be worth sharing. In November during …

Kiira, Kiira, Kiira.…

Kiira, Kiira, Kiira.…

(Updated: image gallery 28.1.2011 at noon) Yup, that’s it. That’s what I did today. And what I will do tomorrow. And the day after… Sure, I will be covering some of the other events as well, but there is no question where the focus will be. Not that I am complaining — on the contrary. She is a pure joy to photograph …

QR Portfolio

QR Portfolio

Wanna see a portfolio? It is the image on the right. Don’t understand? Read the previous post. I just played around and realized that Photos­helter portfolio folder can be referenced directly AND it is Javascript-based / no flash. IPhone/iPad friendly in other words. Not that this portfolio is up to date or worth seeing in the first place… but …

QR Code: Rich Media to Meet the Legacy Print?

QR Code: Rich Media to Meet the Legacy Print?

I don’t usually get carried away by gadgets or techno­lo­gical innova­tions. Usually don’t hype about them either. I might talk about them, review them, discuss them. Yes, you can call me gear-head if you want — but just because of that, I’m also very used to technology. I am not easily impressed. But this time I do. I am. Totally. …
