#236. Iceberg ice pool

By Paul Perton | Travel Photography

The boat nuzzled up to the ‘berg, a dozen photographers clustered as near as the rail would permit – a unique composition amongst a region packed with photo opportunities. Alone, the ice pool is visually interesting, a puzzle as to how it came to be – on top of the iceberg as it is. In […]

#201. On test: Nikon 50mm f1.4

By Paul Perton | Review

Nikon moves ahead – it’s full frame camera line-up is currently topped by the D800e and the soon-to-be announced D4something. The big N has done a similar job with it’s lenses, delivering increasingly interesting glassware for the serious amateur and pro alike. Clearly, this isn’t altruism, more an attempt to fend off the charge of […]

#118. Sensors : why size matters!

By pascaljappy | News , Opinion

Rumours of a Full-Frame NEX camera to come recently triggered jolly flame wars with (uneducated) comments successively denouncing the technical impossibility of the task and, more interestingly, how pointless the whole endeavour is. Now that comes as no surprise. The photo world is dotted with interest niches and, as self-centeredness often overrides intellect, fanboy antics […]

#74. From Paris with Love

By pascaljappy | News

I’m taking a break from reviewing just to show a few pictures from a recent work trip to Paris. I mostly used in camera B&W for quick snaps. The round shape on top of a bump in the Place Saint Opportune paving makes me feel like it could start rolling if the hand wasn’t holding […]

#20. Royal Albert Riot

By pascaljappy | News

The past posts showed a very limited and subtle colour palette that most masters of painting prefer. But sometimes, it’s just great fun to go bonkers and throw big splashes on the canvas. I already went over board with my Covent Garden Cupcakes, but today is even better/worse 🙂 Today’s picture is all about colour. […]

#19. Lake Major Tourist Boat

By pascaljappy | News

Different lake, different boat. (Yesterday’s picture was about how the other half travel ;), this is how the mere mortals roam the beautiful waters of lago maggiore. Sunset again, but a very different picture with the boat and the layering of the hills all placing the little Isola Superiore at the center of attraction. The […]

#8. Stairway to photo heaven

By pascaljappy | News

A look at Thomas Holtkötter’s incredible Caixa 1 staircase picture a couple of weeks ago set one of my goals for a UK vacation: try to approach this amazing simplicity and composition mastery on staircases myself. This one, shot a the Greenwich Astronomy Center pleases me. Less geometrical but almost as abstract and rich in […]
