Posting Photos From Your Computer To Instagram

July 31, 2014 PhotographyTutorials  One comment

OK….who wants to post from their computer to instagram???

My friend and I have been trying to figure out how to do this…easily. I just ran across the app latergram the other day and it’s (as far as I know) the easiest way to post photos from your computer. (I use the iphone, not sure if it’s available for other phones)

So what I did was I downloaded the app and logged in, then went to the website for http://www.latergram.me/ on my pc and logged in. I uploaded and scheduled a TON of photos to post. Now, what I can do is open the app, pick ANY photo I scheduled (even if I scheduled it for a week from now) and post it right away.

Flipboard

I discovered Flipboard last year for my ipad and I just fell madly in love with this app.  Not only is it free, it’s beautifully done, and it is addicting.

Twitter

The first thing that hooked me about Flipboard was viewing my twitter feed through it.  I got a twitter account almost immediately when it first launched and I did love it….but, after awhile I could never really find a twitter reader that I liked.  Then, along came Flipboard.  The ability to flip through my twitter feed in a magazine format, and have all of the images people shared show up (not just as links!) was fabulous.

Other Accounts

You can follow your facebook feed, your instagram feed, your flickr feed, your 500px feed and more right through flipboard.

Merged Time Lapse, Cloud Trails or Cloud Painting?

February 10, 2014 PhotographyTutorials  No comments

Merged Timelapse, Cloud Trails, Cloud Painting…call it what you will (because I don’t think there’s an official name for this technique yet, although I think ‘cloud painting’ is one that is used the most) is an interesting technique.  Of course it’s one of those photographic techniques that you either love or hate.

I attempted some test shots yesterday around my yard.  This time of year we have a terrible view of sunset blocked by a lot of trees but the clouds fairly high up in the sky picked up some color so I set up the 50D with Magic Lantern installed, set the intervalometer to one image every six seconds and did about 30 exposures.  I used the program Startrails.exe (find it here, it’s free: LINK)  to stack all of the images so I didn’t have to do it by hand in Photoshop (although t...
