An Eclipse!! The last time we had one was in the days of analogue; I was shooting BT’s new HQ in Runcorn that day and recall how odd the light was, viewing it through a set of welder’s goggles as the contractors were still on site, working on the security gates. We all stood around watching and listening as the birds fell silent and the sky went a weird tobacco colour that was not quite sunset, nor proper night.
2015 is shaping up to bring some exciting changes for Line+Light. We’re in the process of revamping the website, as if any of you look at it currently using an i-phone or tablet, you’ll notice that it’s tricky to navigate compared to when viewing on a conventional computer screen with a mouse. This is because it was designed before mobile devices were introduced, where as today, many of us own them.
Well 2015 already seems to be galloping along, we’ve seen a little snow, a lot of sun (for January) and some pretty frosts. All of these things are visually compelling for us photographers so I bet you’ve been clicking away with gusto.
HO HO HO, Santa is packing his sleigh as we write, is he bringing you camera gear? Or perhaps a Line+Light voucher?
We have just been reading about Canon’s launch of a 50MB sensor DSLR body in 2015, so that pixel race between manufacturers is far from over. In fact, pixels are the theme of this month’s newsletter, with a look at some clever software and a feature on Lightroom training.
It’s gone cold and crispy again, which means clear night skies this week and on that theme we have news of a really exciting new course for 2015 – Astrophotography! So if you fancy having a go at shooting the stars and planets this winter scroll down for more details. We’ve also got a little article about great apps for photographers.
