A Dose of Reality

Reality Show for Photographers

They have reality show’s for cooks, tattoo artists, singers, performers, designers… why not for photographers (has this been done and I just missed it?) – I am working on this as project for 2013, and rather than it being held on TV, it will all be web based… the public will vote and over 10 weeks, 10 of the finest photographers will battle it out for the number one spot. So here is my first shout out… I need sponsors to make it happen, although winning should be awesome enough, winning a prize will make it even more awesome! If you are keen on talking to me about getting involved (i.e.. giving me stuff to give away) then leave a comment here or shoot me an email at bfewtrell @ me dot com (of course, remove all of the spaces and use a REAL dot!) – if you are a photographer wanting to take part… stay tuned for your entry kit.

Today’s iCandy – QVB

I had heard that you get told off for using a tripod in the QVB, then I read a post from another photographer saying how nice it was they did not seem to care he was using his tripod… so I thought, why not! The whole time I wandered around the QVB no one bothered me about my tripod… it was nice!

Fuji X-E1 v’s Sony NEX-6

A head to head battle…

I was hoping to do a comparison between the NEX 7 and the X-E1 as I know many people are wondering how they compare. Now Sony has released the NEX 6, the specs of this camera are very close to the specs of the Fuji X-E1 but can it come close to the image quality that Fuji has created?

The Camera Store TV has put these two cameras head to head in theĀ Fuji XE-1 vs Sony NEX-6 Shootout…

Today’s iCandy – Up…or Down?

I worked on this one for a while, and I did a lot more than I would normally do… sometimes I get inspired and carried away when I am processing a photo and use a bit of creative license. I usually have my iTunes playing in the background and just get into a rhythm and in most cases, something good pops out the other end. I don’t normally share any before pics with you, but today I am going to so you can play spot the difference, Here you will see that sometimes, Photomatix doesn’t do a great job… I ended up not using the photomatix image in my final version and just used Photoshop and Topaz Adjust to create the final image. I have also included my “the aliens are coming” version of the pic below (I have no idea what possessed me to make an aliens version… maybe it was the aliens!) – So… that only leaves the question… is this lift going up, or down?
