Samsung Galaxy SII – Photography

I have just purchased a Samsung Galaxy S3 and I thought that I would do a slightly off topic post showing the Samsung Galaxy S2‘s great camera capabilities. The Samsung Galaxy s2 has a fantastic 8mp camera and I wanted just show you a few images that I have taken on it.
The following Images are taken just up from where I live on the sunny Isle of Man, Enjoy.
(Feel free to do what you wish with the images, but please put a link to my blog if you do, Thanks guys.)

P.s. Apple are no where near as good as Samsung… Fact.

Dropbox is great!

Dropbox is like an online USB stick, you can access it on any computer and even on your iphone/android for free! Combined with CamScanner for android you can make PDF’s using your camera on your phone and send it direct to your Dropbox.

How to become more productive

When you sit at your desk ready to do your work you will more than likely try to do anything else to avoid it. I bet that you sit there and think “I shall just check my emails and Facebook before making a start” You more than likely have Facebook and/or your emails open as you read this. These things lead you to browse the web, and before you know it you have spent hours looking at useless crap online.

Have you ever had a deadline for the next day and you stay up all night and produce more than you thought was humanly possible? The human mind is fully capable of doing things like this, however it sometimes needs a push in the right direction in order to do it.

What if you could just sit down, do your work and then be free do do whatever you wanted for the rest of the day, week or month. Well you probably will find this pretty hard to do, but it is possible.You just need to identify time wasters.
Different people have different interests and things that distract them, these things include the internet, games and television. Even things such as washing the dishes suddenly becomes more exciting than getting down to work. You need to identify these before you can start to become more productive.

Social media websites
Some of these include

• Facebook
• Twitter
• Tumblr
• Youtube
• Digg Continue reading “How to become more productive”

Annoying things people do – Photography

Here are some things that I hate when people call themselves “photographers”

I personally am not a photographer, but when people buy an expensive camera and then say “I am now a photographer” it annoys me.

A list of things that annoy me about people that think they are photographers.

1. having one photo in colour, then having another in black and white (using photoshop or an editing program) Here is an example..

As you can see, the colour one looks pretty good, it has nice lighting and the colours are almost spot on. Then the ‘photographer’ thinks, “hang on, this would look amazing in black and white!” – NO! This photo just lost everything that made it look above average. Moving on…

2. When people put ‘© 2011 by XXXX XXXX’ You do not own copyrite on this image if you haven’t purchased the copyrite… and its even worse when it is on Facebook.

3. When people make their photos black and white and add an orange filter to them. This doesn’t make it look better, it just makes it look orange!

4. Sepia – If you think that photos such as this one look good, then please take a long walk off a short pier.
I found one that looks okay, but its using the Copyrite symbol at the bottom of the page in a strange font here .

I’m sure that there are more thing that I could complain about, but at the moment I can’t think of any.

3000 cups

Okay, I was on youtube today and I found this video below. This is a classic stop motion video, but this guy has a lot of free time and patience to do this. I thought it was worth a post


The UK riots have all been very annoying and are going to make my insurance and lots of peoples taxes go up next year. I wish the police just shot them all, it would have probably been for the greater good….
Anyway, someone has made a website (tumblr account) that edits a lot of the photos and makes them a bit more amusing,
Here are a few of the pictures

Mac…. Windows …. Linux

Okay, so what one is better? I’m unsure, I actually hate Mac’s because every one that I have been on has turned out to be really crappy and slow and a lot of the people that own them are like “oh have you seen my Macbook? it cant get viruses unlike your windows based computer…. FUCK YOU MAC USERS. Firstly the only reason that Mac had little know Malware is because the Mac industry was too small for the hackers and virus creators to bother with, now that they are becoming more popular, the Malware for Mac has increased and most Mac users don’t know this and they don’t actually have Anti Virus software… Mac users beware!
Also why is the right click disabled by default….

Windows computers are really good for the free software, but usually there is only a trial period and then the companies make you pay for stuff (unless some smart person somewhere makes a crack/keygen for it…  but even then, you can get told off for that kinda stuff). The Windows computers are usually very fast for the price that they are, and you can do everything that A mac can do (pretty much).

Linux, I just started to use this the other day, at the moment I’m using Ubuntu Linux and its going really well at present. The start up time is super fast, you have can have 4 screens going at 1 time, such as now I have a media player in 1 window and youtube and a cool chat system in other, its a really nice function to have.
Linux is also really customizable allowing the user to create his/her own shortcuts to stuff and things. One drawback that I find is that I have to keep switching to my windows machine because of the lack of design software on Linux.

As a conclusion
Mac sucks ass for everything except design work.
Windows is amazing.
Linux is pretty damn good but can be confusing.
