There is something I can assure you with today’s podcast… you will laugh. As a photographer, i understand that everyone wants to have a nice picture of themselves online, however, that doesn’t mean that you have to become on a selfie-addict just to seek for attention. If you see this tutorial, make sure to use the hashtag #SmartSelfie and drop me a twit ;) This time I have a short podcast that will not only help you to determine what you should NOT do when you take a selfie, but will explain also a couple of tricks to use your phone better and get a nicer selfie. Plus what I explain at the podcast, here is a short list of  [ Read More ]

I don’t know you folks, but this is a movie i have been waiting for since ’98 (Yeah, I started with Hot Pursuit) and since years went by, I started loosing hopes that they took this amazing game to the big screen… well, seems they listen.

And to post a photo every now and then, this is a picture of the gorgeous ceiling and chandelier that was at the church where the wedding I was photographing…

Having a camera that record videos was something I always wanted, however, I don’t have a stabilizer, so even if I have an awesome quality, my pulse movement isn’t helpful. That’s why I decided to take a look and see what options do I have in Linux and found Vid-Stab, which allows me to stabilize the image. vid-stab is a plugin for transcode, so first thing your need to do is to install it: Now, you only need to download the plugin, uncompress it and install it: (Check the latest version at: http://public.hronopik.de/vid.stab/download.php?lang=en ) And that’s it, now it’s time to stabilize our video.
