- Portfolio sharing with potential clients
Keep your best photos on your iPad, and flick through them on the gorgeous 10” screen with potential clients. Organize by album to show different shoot styles, etc.
- Evaluate photos on the shoot
Use the camera attachment to download photos on-site and evaluate them on a larger screen than your DSLR’s for quality; make decisions about what to shoot.
- Live preview/download from your SLR
There’s an app already that will let you control your DSLR from your iPhone, a similar app on the iPad might let you control your camera and instantly download the photo so you can see it really big. Consider it a big, wireless, control panel for your camera. 10” LCD instead of 3”, and all the controls you need to shoot. Imagine if you could autofocus your lens just by touching a scene on an iPad screen. Awesome!
- Editing Photos with your Fingers!
Many photographers already use graphics tablets to edit photos. There’s already photo editing apps on the iPhone, but iPad photo editing apps could take advantage of a larger screen and faster processor to let you make finer adjustments like with a tablet, but using your fingers.
- Gorgeous Photo eBooks
eBooks haven’t really worked for photo books yet because all the readers all black and white and use e-ink. No more! We expect high-quality photo books in the iBooks store taking advantage of the iPad’s beautiful screen.
- There’s tons of potential-but-as-yet-unseen goodies that an iPad could feature: for example, the ability to “flick” photos straight from an iPhone to an iPad. Once the thing’s actually released into the wild, there’s no telling what people will invent! Check out the ideas that Photojojo readers came up with on Facebook — the only limit is our imagination.
This is exactly me. Anyone else relate to this?
“I know this is a pretty stupid question, but I can’t seem to fix this self-control issue and it’s screwing up my life. I started an internship a few months ago, and I’m finding that I need to be a lot more conscious and awake than I ever had to be in university. But even though I know I have to get up for work early the next day, and even though I’m exhausted from only having had 3 or 4 hours of sleep the night before, I simply will not go to sleep. I mean that I tell myself, “you should sleep, you’re getting up early, you’ve slept late every night this week, go to bed” and I still don’t move.
Part of it is my quasi-internet/computer addiction, probably; when I actually pull myself away from the computer, my tiredness hits me, I can’t keep my eyes open, and I pretty much fall into bed. At the same time, I didn’t have computer access for a while and I kept myself up anyways, reading books or writing a journal or other things like that. The even weirder thing is that now, with the computer, I feel too guilty to actually do anything fun so long as I’m aware that I’m putting off sleep; thinking of playing a game is met with “There is no way you are going to play a game when it’s two in the morning and you need to get up at 6” but I still can’t seem to make myself sleep, so I end up just reloading MeFi or RSS feeds for hours - and I’m in a time zone where nothing is even updating or being posted, so it’s utterly useless.
Another thing that might be relevant is that I seem to have some sort of subconscious quota. If I get home at 7 and bum around until it’s time for bed, I can usually stir myself to sleep by 12 (later than I’d like, but livable); on the other hand, on days where I have activities and I don’t get home till 10 or so, I’m much more likely to be up doing nothing until 3am.”
So we had our first sunny day since the storm that started about a week ago (bizarre for Los Angeles). I woke up and the weather outside was beautiful! Crisp air, puffy clouds, the whole deal!
I went on a hike in Malibu with my mom and sister. Of course, bringing the Nexus One with me, I photographed the day. Here we go!
The beginning of the “Rising Sun” trail
We found the remains of a burned down house out here!
I think this Nexus One has a pretty damn good macro.
As the sun was setting, we headed down the Pacific Coast Highway to Malibu Seafood!
I think I’ll have many more of these photo journal posts in the future now that I have a camera that I will ALWAYS have on me. It’s fun! Shoot everything!
