Sad to hear of the passing of lawyer Bala Nadarajah this week. He was one of the unsung heroes behind the establishment of Bermuda as an international centre for (re)insurance and a true gentleman. I had the pleasure of interviewing him for a business magazine a few years back (see link below).

I have just launched a new photo blog, Eyedrop, as a place to post my on-going experiments in digital photography, especially iPhoneography. I’m an enthusiastic amateur, not a pro – it is very much, as the subtitle states, “shooting pixels from the hip”! I’ll be posting new and old images on a regular basis as well as links to apps, sites and photographers that I use and like. I’ll be setting up linked Facebook, Twitter and Flickr feeds in due course. Come take a look … or better still, get snapping yourself and let’s share our experiences and discoveries!

I’m increasingly fascinated by iPhoneography as an art form in its own right. The humble camera phone has developed into much more than a handy ‘point and snap’ and the vast number of apps now available for iPhone, iPad and Android phones and tablets allow you to be as creative as your imagination allows. Sites like Pixels At An Exhibition showcase the stunning work now being produced by mobile photographers.
If you’re looking to get more serious about phone photography, I can highly recommend a couple of items I’ve recently discovered.
The Art of iPhoneography: A Guide To Mobile Creativity is an excellent book by Stephanie C. Roberts that is now an iPad app. It doesn’t just cover the basics but shows you how to get the best out of apps like Hipstamatic, Photo fx and Photoshop Express as well as providing inspiration with interactive profiles of leading iPhoneographers, project ideas and the best sites to share your work on. Beautifully designed and easy to use, it’s a steal at $9.99.
Snap, which launched in June, is a free monthly magazine for iPad and iPhone produced by Hipstamatic that features gorgeous and inspirational work by some of the most creative iPhonoegraphers around as well as tips on getting the most out of Hipstamatic. A great feature is that you can click on every image in the magazine to reveal the specific settings used to take the photo.
